Create a Video CD!
ImageMixer with VCD (IMxVCD) is an authoring application for creating Video CD movies.
After adding your movies, you can create the movie buttons for the menu screen displayed when the Video CD is played. Design
your own menu screen with custom movie button settings, background images, and music.
The movie buttons are assigned selection numbers. You can play the selection button content by using the remote control of your
playback device. For example, to play movie assigned to number [1] on the menu screen, press [1] on your remote control. (Actual
operation varies depending on your playback device.)
Follow these steps to create your own Video CD.
Important
Be sure to read the Precautions.
Macintosh users cannot directly record Video CDs using IMxVCD. On a Macintosh, use IMxVCD to create a Video CD image
that is compatible with the CD burning application Toast by Roxio, Inc. To use Toast for Video CD recording, refer to the separate
instructions.

Using IMxVCD to Create Video CDs (for Windows)
In the past, the main recording method involved creating a Video CD image
and then using CD recording software to record it. Now you can use
IMxVCD for direct recording with devices such as CD-R drives that support
Video CD burning. There's no need for CD recording software. Right after
authoring, you're ready to record.

Precautions
Checklist for Correct IMxVCD Operation
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
Before using IMxVCD to create a Video CD, make sure that your recording drive is
working normally.
The operating environment recommended by the recording drive manufacturer is
required to burn Video CDs. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and
note the caution items.
Use the CD-ROM media recommended by the manufacturer.
Ensure that no software or drivers are installed that might interfere with Video CD
creation.
To create a Video CD, you must use one of the recording drives described separately.
We cannot guarantee operation in Video CD creation for models not listed among the
verified recording drives.
Certain models of playback devices cannot play Video CDs created by recording
drives.
For Windows users, we recommend that your hard disk be set to DMA transfer
mode.
Disk creation can be affected screen savers, system agents, and other timed software,
as well as other memory-resident running during Video CD creation. Before creating
your disk, exit all applications except IMxVCD.
Ensure that you have sufficient hard disk capacity available. Extremely limited
memory capacity prevents normal Video CD creation.
Video CDs cannot be burned correctly using prerecorded CD-ROMs or disks that are
damaged or dirty.

MPEG
MPEG, an abbreviation for Moving Picture Experts Group, is an international data
compression standard for digital video and hi-fi audio. MPEG-1 is used for Video CD
playback that rivals VHS tapes in quality. MPEG files are smaller than DV (digital video)
files, an advantage which enables longer recordings and has made them a standard format for
Internet use. MPEG-2, used for DVD and digital satellite broadcasts, offers excellent image
and sound quality.
