4.87 GB is the current size. Is there a way to make Encore automatically adjust data rate to fit on a DVD disk without editing out part of the video?
I changed the project transcode settings from 8 to 6 Mbps, but it did not make a difference in the projected project size. I also changed the quality preset values, but that didn't make a difference, either.
Tell Encore you want to use a dual layer disc... if, of course, you HAVE a dual layer burner and disc blanks
Also, to create a dual layer disc, you MUST do this http://forums.adobe.com/thread/969395
I could not find where to 'revert to original.' I ended up re-exporting from Premiere at a lower quality and target data rate. I just thought there was a setting that automatically encoded the disk to max 4.7 capacity. It would seem that Encore should 'know' the disk capacity and make adjustments accordingly, instead of exporting several versions out of Premiere to fit.

There is; set the transcode setting to "automatic."
I thought you saw that and could not get it to stick. But you want to use that on a lossless or minimally compressed file, or by using dynamic link; not on material that is already mpeg2.

As Stan said, there is such a setting inside Encore... I always use that setting, with DV AVI exported out of PPro, so Encore is able to do the transcoding
