I have set up a DVD in Encore CS 5.1
It is a 2 and a Half hour wedding with 9 Menus and animated buttons.
When I open up the Build tab it says that I am using 21 GB and have 4 left over.
I made an Blu-Ray ISO file and when it was done, it said that the file was 25.75 GB.
Why would it be that much extra? I am trying to burn it in Roxio Toast, but it won't let me because of the size.
How can I make the size smaller so I can make an ISO folder so it's around 22 1/2 GB so I burn it in Toast 11?
Can I do this inside Encore or do I have to re-encode my 2 and a half hour wedding and make the Target Bit rate and Max bit rate a little smaller?
Thanks in advance
>I have set up a DVD... I made an Blu-Ray ISO file
I am confused... which is it, DVD or BluRay?
I know that a DVD project will allow you to add computer files in the ROM content box... does BluRay have the same option?
What do your transcoding settings look like?
If you go to File > Project Settings > then click on the "Default Transcoding Settings" button. What is your maximum audio/video bit rate setting set too?
Just for troubleshooting sake, can you change it to a lower setting to see if the size of the ISO decreases in size?
The default transcode setting would only effect motion menus and the like. You can set timeline asset transcodes above that limit. It is a very tempting alternative, but I do not believe it is the source of the "content is really bigger than Encore predicts."
