CS5 - Exporting from PPro to Encore resulted in 20 Gb file. On attempting burning "File Too Large" appearsand burning fails. Q- how do I burn it to a number of DVD's?
Split the file up in Premiere Pro, and export lengths to fit the quality you want.
Use a bitrate calculator and experiment.
Sorry; just realized it is a 20Gig AVI. How long in minutes is the video?
If under 2 hours, you can reduce the datarate and it will fit; if longer, try a dual layer disk.
Thanks for your note. Video length is 4hrs 28 min. I was hoping to find a function that will auto split the asset pending on the avaiable space on a blank DVD. I think that some years back Somebody had this function on their editor, cannot remmember who. best regards.
I wonder if it was DVDShrink, but I never used it.
Export approximately half at a time, set Encore transcode settings to automatic. See how it looks.
Or, add the current (full length) sequence in Premierre to a new sequence, and adjust so you have the first half. Do that again with anotyher new sequence and adjust to the second half. Then use dynamic link to bring one of the halves into a new Encore project. Set transcode setting to automatic.
This will not be great quality. For better quality, do it in thirds. Five disks may max the quality, but your avi may be using some kind of compression that will never get best quality.
Thanks, I’ll give it a go. One wonders why such a (seemingly) simple issue has not been tackled by the Adobe folks – irrespective of the asset size, start burning a DVD, more assets to burn? “Insert Another Disc”, more assets left over? “Insert Another Disc”; ad infinitum.
