VCD Builder

1.1.3
17 April 2004

Create VCD and SVCD disc images.

Overview

VCD Builder is for creating VCD and SVCD disc images from pictures and MPEG movies. The disc images can then be burned onto a CD-R using Toast. VCD Builder automatically converts your pictures to a VCD compatible format. It does however not convert your QuickTime movies to MPEG; you have to use another program for that. The source code for the program is also available free of charge.

What's new in VCD Builder

Version 1.1.3 includes fixes for better compatibility with Toast 6 Titanium, better size estimation when including movies in the project, an option for forcing the software to use the VCD format even when including SVCD movies on the disc.

Toast DOES have limited authoring. It's just a pain in the butt!

Yeow! I Love This Thing!! The menuing capability is far beyond toast's and super-intuitive! VCD Builder turns over the burning to Toast or creates .bin and .cue files. VCD Builder seemed far better than most video apps for Mac. It's not just a confusing GUI Script for libraries. I hope this is going to get more features in the future. My only complaint is that it reduced the quality of MPEG1 streams. (reencodes?) Johan, I'd REALLY love to see a program this intuitive for creating DVD's!! 8^D

Can't comment on Toast 'cause I don't own it, but consider the differential in price ($80 vs free).

Toast doesn't create VCDs. It is only able to burn them.

It's painfully slow to encode the image on my iBook. I guess you need a G4 for this kind of stuff.

Hmmm, errrr. Did u read the description? "VCD Builder is for creating VCD and SVCD disc images from pictures and MPEG movies. [...] It does however not convert your QuickTime movies to MPEG; you have to use another program for that." Cheers

> VCD Builder is for creating VCD and > SVCD disc images from pictures and > MPEG movies. I think he was referring to the TYPES of pictures. I too only used JPEGs and TIFFs, so i'm not sure if it accepts others.

If you read the information on it in help, it will tell you that it accepts a wide variety of photos. I have not tried any layerd Photoshop yet, but is does take flattened photoshop picts.

Wow. Worked the first time and it's free! Toast was really picky about the files it would accept and I couldn't get a VCD made with it. Then this thing made it seem easy. Very highly recommended. Could use better documentation though. I'm not a big user of VCDs so I don't know about sequences or menus.
