I hate exporting video!

I hate to bitch about things after not posting here for so long but...I've finished an animation for the moving images festival as part of SALA and now all I need to do is put it on DVD.
The way I did it before is not working for some reason. This seems to happen every single time I try to put something on DVD something to do with codecs and not outputting in a version computable with flash 5.
All I really want a button that says "put this on DVD" and not have to go through all this crap about exporting to this then moving this to this and changing this setting before it will go into this and work with this which means that that won't like it so I need to use this instead but with this setting switched to this and this but then using this instead of this as this doesn't work with this setting set to this so this will output as a steaming pile of crap! I've really got to get this stuff figured out.

A pen, a pen, my kingdom for a pen!

I've also lost the pen for my graphics tablet. I've always been very particular and meticulous about keeping it in it's rightful spot, in the little holder on the top of the tablet. but when I went to use it this afternoon it was all kinds of not there. I spent a fair chunk of time searching for the darn thing and turned up a Stanly knife, a comb, a paper on the Blender free ware pipeline, no less than 7 lead pencils, a roll of waxed dental floss and a set of headphones.
This means I can't do any work with till I find it or get a new pen or even upgrade.
and to top it all off I've got a cold.

you can borrow my pen :(

(I recently upgrade my pretty sapphire graphire 3 to a sliiiiiiiiiick intuos 3, and the change in quality is amazing ;o but so is the change in price x.x;;;)

do you have any replacement nibs? I wonder if you could just one of those with it. . .

I've tried with a replacement nib but it didn't like it. I think there's something in the pen part that the tablet detects.

I'm thinking it may be time to upgrade anyway.

I think she has. She does that from time to time but she's always left it on the chair or in the hall.

I wrote a script that takes any video and makes it into a dvd for me as I became sick of all the fiddling about in hyperspace.

Unfortunately for you it's a linux script. But if we can work out the exchange of data I can sort things out for you.
