Computer games don't affect kids; I mean if Pac-Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

Before you burn the DVD, click on the Video_TS folder and find the file called VTS_01_0. If you click on that, it should launch your dvd player application, and play your movie for you, before you burn it.

That's a neat little tip. I am using RWs for the test run, but this will save me 30min burning time at least.

Pick up a rewritable while you're at it.  No need to waste disks.

Also, you can probably find out if the audio is synched right by running the .VOB files in a DVD player program like Power DVD after you've done the authoring.  This way you can find out what's going on before you even shrink and burn it.

This was your first posting?  Holy crap! 

I had no idea how until I followed your instructions, but so far Lord of the Rings, Daredevil, and the Island of Ethan Moreau all worked perfectly.  No problems. 

Thanks for this, it really helped. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Last night I tried to make a Troll 2 Rifftrax DVD and everything worked out fine until I got to the DVD Shrink step. Anytime I do the "Backup" step and I press OK, it says there was an error and there isn't enough room in my target. Any suggestions?

Ah, nevermind.

I just had to delete all the Troll 2 files since they were eating up so much space.
Hope this works now!

Ok, I'm sorry for posting three times in a row here.

But the DVD finished and I noticed two problems:
1. The rifftrax is really low and quiet while the movie soundtrack is super loud and blaring.
2. I thought I read in the guide that there would be an option to turn the rifftrax on and off so I could just watch the movie sans Rifftrax, but my DVD doesn't seem to have that option.

But otherwise, it came out ok. It's all snyched up and everything, so thanks very much for this guide.

What program are you using to sync the audio?

I followed the directions and used Audacity.

I guess not. I just added the audio track that has the Rifftrax attached to the movie's audio. I take it I was suppose to add both?

Sometimes with Audacity, you have to turn up the entire riff if it sounds too quiet, or just turn it up on the loud parts of the movies (i.e. yelling, explosions, etc...). If you don't want to spend the extra time doing this, you can use the program Goldwave w/ the goldwave plugin. The program isn't free (although I do believe it is a fully functional trial), but you can use it in conjuction w/ the goldwave plugin to make sure you can actually hear the riffs in the movie.

You can find a guide on how to use it at this post: http://www.rifftrax.com/smf/index.php?topic=583.0

Then you can decide if you want to use Audacity or Goldwave. I included audacity in this guide because it is a free program, (like all the other programs) and I was familiar enough with it to write a step by step guide on how to use it.

Just next time, when you go through the audacity step, go through some of the riffs in the loud parts and make sure you can hear them. If you can't, either turn down the movie audio, or turn up the rifftrax audio by highlighting and amplifying.

Hope that helps.

I use audacity for all my dvd's.  When all is synced up and you want to export to wav - on the left of each track is the Gain slider.  I make the movie -3, most the time leave the riff at 0 or maybe +3.  This helps even it out during the loud movie parts.
