Convert X to DVD is an all-in-one video converter for AVI, DivX, MPG, MKV, WMV and other input video to DVD format, which automatically burns to a blank DVD-R or DVD-RW when conversion is complete. You may create customised DVD menus with Convert X to DVD's preset menu templates. You can also upload images, audio or video for your DVD menu background and set your DVD menu's file structure with clickable text for each video file being converted for the same DVD. Text titles may be customised with different fonts and sizes using the program's Text Style Editor.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Launch Convert X to DVD. Click the "Window" button at the top of the screen and select "Video Preview" to load a menu preview window on the right side of the screen.

  2. 2

    Click the "+" button in the middle of the screen to add the desired video file from your computer. Highlight its icon in the pop-up search window and click "Open" to add your file with its own menu options. Repeat for any additional video files.

  3. 3

    Double-click the "DVD Menu Options - My DVD" icon above your loaded video file and name your DVD. Text will appear in the Preview window on the right side of the screen as your menu title. Click your menu title's drop-down arrow to reveal more menu options. Double-click the "Template Now Used" button to choose a different Convert X to DVD template for your background, depending on the desired look.

  4. 4

    Choose your DVD Menu options so ticks appear next to their icons. For example, select "Play Titles One After the Other" to play all videos in order without returning to the menu. Select "Return to Title Menu..." if you want to return to the title menu after a video finishes or "Skip Root Menu Initially" to play a video directly from the title menu once it is selected.

  5. 5

    Click the different video file icons in your list to reveal different text options. Press the "In-Title Menu" drop-down menu under each title and double-click the "Text" button to enter your own text for each title. This will appear on your main DVD Menu for each video file. Repeat for all video files in your list, creating titles for each.

  6. 6

    Click the "Title Menu Parameters" drop-down tree in the "DVD Options" drop-down tree. Upload your own background image or video to the menu template by clicking "Background Video/Image..." and choosing "Use a Custom File." Click the directory icon below "Use a Custom File" and select a background from your computer. If uploading a video to your background, specify the start time for your video. Up to thirty seconds of video may be looped in your menu template.

  7. 7

    Add any audio for your Title menu by double-clicking the "Background Audio For Title Menu" button, located under "Title Menu Parameters." Choose a file from your computer and click "Open." Specify the start time for your audio (up to thirty seconds may be used) and the desired volume.

  8. 8

    Navigate to the top of the screen to "All Menu Pages Text Style Editor," located below your "Disc Name." Double click to open the text style editor for your menu. Choose a different style for your template, different fonts, colours, text alignment, spacing, and other features to apply to your entire menu. Click "OK" to exit back to Convert X to DVD's main screen.

  9. 9

    Insert a blank DVD into your disc drive. Click the "Settings" tab at the top of Convert X to DVD and choose "DVD Specifications." Choose "NTSC" if in the United States or "Pal" if in Europe and click "OK." Press the "Convert" button to begin converting your menu and files to DVD format.
