This text is from my arcives. It may be out of date, but I thought it should be preserved.The following Workshops are available:
How to create a System-Stream (MPEG with video & audio) It's very simple: Just follow these three steps.
Create an Video-Stream
Just use the mpeg2enc+ or a similar program to create an MPEG1.
If You want to create an Video-CD compatible MPEG, just use one of the special prefs (mpeg2enc+).
Create an Audio-Stream
Use an MPEG-Audio encoder like MusicIn, Pegase, Lame, NcodeR, ... (there are many in the AmiNet).
If You want to create an Video-CD compatible MPEG, You have to create an MPEG1 / Layer II (aka .mp2), with two channels (stereo), 44100 Hz sampling frequency and a bit rate of 224Kbps.
For other streams are the settings are also useful. But use 128-224kbps and Layer II or III. Note: the multiplexer in the AmiNet can not handle Layer III streams.
Create an System-Stream
You have to use a program like mplex (AmiNet: gfx/conv) or similar to join the two streams.
The three parameters of mpex are the video-, audio- and system-stream-name.
Now the program request a few parameters:
How to create a Video-CD Ok, just create a System-Stream like explained above (using all Video-CD restrictions). Than write it on a CD. I don't know any Amiga program, which can handle that. But e.g. "WinOnCD" (PC) can do that...
How to create a QuickTime Movie from MovieShop It's much simpler than creating a MPEG.
Create a movie with MovieShop.
Use the Scene-Handler to mount the project:
Select the Scene/Project and press "Mount"
Use JPEG2MOV to create the Movie:
Now there are a small problem: with a project size of e.g. 752×544 will the pictures have a size of 752×272. Assuming that a low quality Movie should created (~1/4th of the project size) we're starting JPEG2MOV with the following ENTeters:
|Fourth||Recompress the movie with a useful format (Read the JPEG2MOV doc for more help)|
How to create a MPEG from MovieShop Ok, first mount the Scene/Project (like above). Then start the mpeg2enc+ and enter all neccesary parameters. Don't forget, that the Picture FPS-Rate is always 50 (PAL) / 60 (NTSC). Now You can make everyting like in the mpeg workshop.
