Sorry, I see Handbrake will just do the transcoding from MP4 to MPEG-2. I
if you had an authoring tool or not but there are a bunch of free DVD (and
authoring apps for Windows.
I know this sounds lame to any software geek, but I've been using Windows
Movie Maker with good success. Unfortunately when I upgraded from Windows 7
to 10, MS decided to remove the DVD burn part of the software (they've also
removed the games).
So, now I use MovieMaker for editing, then save the project file, then
create an MP4 from the files. Most of the files I'm using as source
material are MP4. I'm aware that the MP4 designation refers to a wrapper
and not an actual codec, but when the source is MP4, or shall I say "MP4",
the saving to the MP4 file is faster than when I have MP2, AVI, or other
formats as source.
Even so, it still can take 45 minutes to an hour to produce the MP4 file for
a 90 minute DVD.
After that I now use DVD Flick to create the VOB files and burn them to DVD.
This can take an hour to 90 minutes or so. So, after I save my project
file, the time to create the finished DVD can be over 3 hours sometimes.
This is why I'm concerned about processor speed and not things like GPUs,
