Rendering slideshow for DVD

I'm a new user of Kdenlive. After my travel to India i wanted to create a nice slideshow of my photo's (with music, some title slides etc) and burn it on a DVD. So far i have succesfully created the entire movie and i have rendered it to MPG. I used the MPEG-2 25000k preset, format PAL. To movie looks very good and plays ok, including the audio.
However now i'm trying to create an ISO with kdenlive to burn it on DVD, but i have some problems with this. In the DVD Wizard i choose the mpg-file which was rendered previously by kdenlive, but when i click 'create iso image', I get the following error:

I searched Google on how to 'remultiplex' the input and found some explanation that i first have to demux the mpg and then remultiplex it. I tried 'mpgdemux' and then mplex -f 8 and later also ffmpeg -i in.mpg -vcodec copy out.m2v, but with the same results.

Any ideas how i can fix the mpeg, or let kdenlive render a file which i can add to an iso?

I'm running kdenlive 0.7.5 on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. My ffmpeg version is also the default for Karmic

Forums:

I just found the 'destination'-dropdown in the render dialog which has a DVD option... so i'm going to try this right now

So I too had this
"ERR: SCR moves backwards, remultiplex input.

DVDAuthor process crashed"

error when using the DVD Wizard from Kden live.

Thanks to teranex for ponting out about the Destination DVD in the render Option in kdenlive.

Teranex keeps us in suspense as to whether this fixed his problem.

But I can report that this successfully fixed the "SCR moves backwards" problem for me.

I used the "Destination DVD" render option to create a .vob file that I was able to rename to .mpg and then use as an input into the DVD Wizard.

The DVD wizard then finishes with "DVD ISO image /home/ttguy/dvd.iso successfully created."

The .vob file created under the "Destination DVD" render option is also compatible with my favourite DVD authoring program - TMPGEnc DVD Author which I run under Wine.

Before I found the "Destination DVD" render option I was rendering files as 6000kps 2 pass mpeg2 PAL. But TMPGEnc DVD Author was complaining "the video bit rate (104 Mbits/s ) is too high for a standard DVD - should be no more than 9.8Mbits/s". In fact it did not matter how low a bit rate I encoded on kdenlive TMPGEnc DVD Author would always complain that the bit rate was 104 Mbits/s.

But the .vob file created under the "Destination DVD" render option is accepted happily by TMPGEnc DVD Author.

So yay - I think I am finally happy that I can author a DVD to my satisfaction on my Linux box.

Posting in case this helps someone else

After rendering to Destination:DVD -> NTSC 16:9 2pass .vob (actually a whole bunch of files)
I also got "ERR: SCR moves backwards, remultiplex input." from dvdauthor

( This did not work or produced unrecogniseable mpeg file for mplex -f 8
mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile .ac3 | -dumpvideo -dumpfile .m2v )
So I tried this
# ffmpeg -i part0.vob -vcodec copy -acodec copy -target ntsc-dvd part0.ntsc-dvd.vob

The resulting VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB seems ok in mplayer at least, not tried a hardware player
#dvdauthor -o . -t --video=ntsc+16:9+720x480 --audio=ac3+2ch -f part0.ntsc-dvd.vob

I have the same issue I believe. I am a total noob to kdenlive (though like it) and video. Using v 0.8.3 on Ubuntu 10.11.
- Start with a mks file, plays fine in kdenlive and movie player
- I render to Destination DVD and NTSC 16:9 VOB, export audio, 2-pass
- I have it automatically launch DVD Wizard, which then opens with the rendered file selected and the format of 16:9
- Don't do anything to chapters or menu
- Create ISO bombs with:
