To create a DVD in Photostory Deluxe, follow these steps:

  1. Start by making sure you are using the latest version of Photostory Deluxe. To do this, go to the in-program "Help" menu and perform an online update.
  2. Start Photostory Deluxe and load your project.
  3. Go to "File" > "Settings" > "Program" (or press the "Y" key on your keyboard) to open the program settings.
  4. Open the "Options" tab and check to see if the export option "Hardware acceleration for MPEG-2/MPEG-4 export if possible" is enabled. If it is, DISABLE it and click "OK".
  5. Switch to the "Burn" interface, click the "Burn" button and select DVD as the type of disc you want to create.
  6. In the burn dialog, click "Encoder settings".
  7. At the top of the encoder settings, select a preset for your project. If your project is 4:3, select "Standard DVD PAL"; if it is 16:9, select "Standard DVD PAL widescreen".
  8. Click "Advanced" and make sure the CPB value is set to 224.
  9. Click "OK" to close the advanced settings, then start the burn procedure.

If you are asked about certain files related to a previous burn project, check the two boxes to encode the menus and select "Encode all" to ensure that the project is completely re-encoded.
