          But... what have you done that you know your movie won't write to a DVD?

           

          A one hour video will easily fit on a DVD, and two hours on a dual layer DVD

            Premiere elements movie

            Hi John,

            I checked the "Properties" and it says it is over 9GB, and I assume that the 4.7 GB DVD won't hold it; or am I not looking at it in the right way.  I'm not any kind of an expert so maybe I'm not doing this right.   My video is just under an hour in length. Thanks for your help.   Norbert

              Norbert,

               

              First, let's look at the total Duration of your Project's Timeline. How long is it?

               

              When one Encodes a Timeline to MPEG-2 DVD (the required format/CODEC for DVD-Video), there is compression involved. Depending on the Duration, that might, or might not fit on a DVD-5 blank disc (4.7GB disc). Knowing your Duration will give us an idea of whether it will likely fit. If not, there are options to get your Project to DVD-Video, but before we go into those options, knowing the Duration will be the first step.

               

              Good luck, and please let us know a bit more.

                The average "original" video file is 12-to-13 Gig per hour... that video is then COMPRESSED during DVD authoring down to about 4 Gig per hour

                 

                Go to the link I provided and click the links about Sharing... especially the one about Sharing to DVD

                 

                Your "under an hour" video should easily fit on a single layer DVD... as long as you follow the tutorial instructions

                  One way to gauge your situation in a quick and effective way is, with Timeline content edited, menus in place, etc., advance to Share/Disc/DVD disc.

                   

                  With your DVD 4.7 GB/120 min in the DVD burner tray, look at what its says in the Premiere Elements 10 burn dialog Quality Area for Space Required and Bitrate (with and without a check mark next to "Fit Content to Available Space"). You want to be working with that check mark next to "Fit Content to Available Space". Remember, in reality that 4.7 GB label represents only 4.38 GB.

                   

                  If your player supports it, you could consider burning to a DVD 8.5 GB/240 min (aka double layer single sided disc). In reality, that 8.5 GB is 7.95 GB).

                   

                  We will be watching for your results, and my have addition questions based on your results.

                   

                  Thanks.

                    John T.,

                     

                    Thanks for pointing out that Duration. I had missed that - jet lag?

                     

                    With a Duration of < 1 hour, there should be no issue compressing (Transcoding/Encoding) that Timeline to MPEG-DVD, to fit onto a DVD-5 blank disc, at high quality.

                     

                    That can be easily tested by doing a Burn to Folder on the computer's HDD, to see exactly what the total size is for the VIDEO_TS folder w/ the necessary files.

                     

                    Good luck to the OP.

                      What is the problem with just looking at the burn to disc Quality area's Space Required and Bitrate before hitting burn?

                       

                      That would seem to me to be the quickest way to gauge the situation.

                        One could do that too.

                         

                        The one benefit that I find with Burn to Folder is that I can then test that VIDEO_TS folder in a DVD software player, before committing to a blank disc. I use that as my first level of testing (for space required, plus my "level 1" tests), then will burn a DVD-RW for additional testing, before finally producing my deliverable DVD-Video, using high-quality media, but not RW - that is but for my testing only.
