Create VCD/sVCD files for burning.

Overview

DivIllusion is the easiest way to create VCD/SVCD media. Simply drag and drop movie files onto it and DivIllusion will encode them and create a VCD file ready to be burned.

Came across this app just the other day and thought "wholla!" just what I have been looking for...unfortunately anything after that was/has been a major disapointment...attempted to encode several .mpg and a .avi files with the intent of converting and burning them first to a SVCD which didn't work then a VCD and the result was the same. The app took its time "encoding" which I had expected, yet despite my trying any and all options, it never once saved anything after the conversion process concluded. I had first copied the original video files to my hardrive and did the conversion with DivIllusion. The only thing that ever appeared or was saved after the encoding process was complete in any and all of my attempts was a empty "Video files" folder. Thinking that the DivIllusion might have replaced the original with the converted/encoded, I took the files that I had placed on my hardrive and dragged them into Toast. Toast then went through its own "encoding" process operating/acting as if they had never been altered at all (which I later found was exactly the case). I burned the files on a disc and I was able to get a VCD but the quality was very poor and in remembering the text instructions that came in the DivIllusion folder, I recalled that it stated that the quality one was supposed to acheive using Divillusion versus the Toast output was substancial. This led me to believe that the files that DivIllusion had supossibly "encoded" hadn't been touched and or saved at all. I then deleted those video files from my hardrive and instead loaded the original .mpg and .avi files from a CD-ROM directly into the DivIllusion application. This was the prove I needed as again DivIllusion went through the entire "encoding" process yet once that step was complete and no matter what option I selected in creating a VCD in which to burn or not doing anything or whatever be the case, not a single coverted file existed on my hardrive anywhere.

i have to admit - this had gotta be the easiest VCD creator I've used to date - it actually works. per last post, the quality of the encoding is quite fair and not surprising considering how fast it encodes! two features I would want is (1) the ability to adjust the quality of the encoding (and/or replace the encoder) and (2) the ability to reorder (esp if you drag a bunch of files from iPhoto for example.) if anyone figures out how to improve/hack the encoding output - please post here!

Afew people seem to have problems with Divillision, but for me (iMac G5 & Panasonic DVD recorder as the player), it does a perfect job, and works as advertised...

the vcd's it makes play in my computer but not in my dvd player. and yes, my dvd player supports vcd. it appears that DivIllusion only supports the older VCD format (VCD version 1) and not the newer VCD version 2 format. this is crap because most DVD players that support VCD only support VCD 2

hello, actually DivIllusion was built using Apple's X-Dev API wich should make a software, built with 10.3, jaguar compatible. So there is no reason why I should test it with jaguar. Now, it looks like Apple's API doesn't work as expected. Of course I'll build a new version that is jaguar compatible. And of course I've spend hours and hours testing Divillusion (with panther). Thanks, Fabio

I have OS10.3.8 and sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Will not recognise the Mac Disc Burner. Once I resintalled the program and it worked for a couple of times, then it will not again. Can't burn a new VCD. Hope teh future will make it possible as it is such a nice idea.

^^ I kind of like it. It's pretty easy to use, and all - but when I try to convert more than one file at a time the first file only takes up a quarter of the screen, which is.... odd. And I can't figure out how to burn a VCD from the files, as I don't have Toast.... but that's probably not your problem....

This is a pretty decent application, tried it despite the bad reviews it had. It took about 1.5 hours to convert a 700 mb avi file to 2 VCD files, the app did the splitting by itself. Real easy to use, thanks to the developer I can finally make VCD's out of avi's.

I've made all my possible to make this app work properly, and several tests on several computers. Of course I've made tests, I'm surprised to hear that it still doesn't work. Please, could you be more precise about what's wrong ? No .mpg file is created ? Maybe there are problems with the sound ? Thank you in advance Fabio V.
