Step 2. Insert a blank disc on your computer. Open the DVD burning software, click on Add title on the top right corner, select the exported movie file from the folder you have specified in part 1.
Step 3. Head to the Project settings section where you can rename the title, change the video standard format from PAL, NTSC, NTSC-film, and Mixed, modify the encoding speed and audio volume, whether to create an ISO image, etc. Select Accept after the changes.
Step 4. You can also customize the menu style under the Menu settings.
Step 5. On the bottom of the window, click Browse and specify the path to place the project. Since the program will delete all the previous content in the folder in the process, you’d better create a new folder for the project.
