Step 4. Preview

When you’re done with the menu, click “Preview” on the top buttons. The preview window allows you to do a final check on the menu layout before starting an export job. If you don’t like what you see, you can go back to the “DVD” window to make changes and then check again.

You cannot “boost” the quality by choosing the 7.92 GB option for a single layer project.

Now click on the “Export” button. In the Export window, select an output folder where you want your output DVD folder to be present; the “Video_TS” folder will be created in the path you specify here.

Step 6. Burn DVD folder to DVD disc

In case you don’t check the “Start DVD burning after export” box in the last step, you can use the DVD burning tool included in the MPEG Video Wizard DVD to burn the exported “Video_TS” folder to a DVD disc.

To open the DVD Burning Tool, click the “Tools” button on the toolbar and select “DVD Burning Tool” from the menu.

In the Burn window, change the folder path that you issued your DVD files to (it should be automatically selected for you), and then choose your DVD burner (you can also choose to generate an ISO file to burn later) and then click the “Burn” button to start burning your DVD video to DVD disc.
