Sometimes the estimates are a litle more accurate.
Depends on amount of detail and movement in the source that needs to be "processed" in the export compression.
Just the way it is.
WOW i just never would have expected an average 30% file increase from what the estimate says..
ok so on that note is there any settings that lets it force the size to fit on a disk?
I am a cc subscriber and can use any adobe program now, so i know with my last cheepe video ediing program (100 bucks) they had a nice button that said "fit to DVD" and the program would do what ever it needed to in order to get the project to fit on a DVD,
so with that said does any abobe product do this? or do i just have to keep re-encoding the project until i get a size that fits the needed medium?
Data rate is what essentially affects and controls the file size of an export.
Its a bit trial and error ...and beware ...there is a quality trade off with lower data rates.
this project is a bunch of kids videos that will go on a DVD for the car, these are 4-5 year old watching and it being viewed on a car dvd player so with that said i had the Bitrate at 1000 i know its low but the audiance does not really care
so i just have to keep re-encoding the source file huh until i get the size i need,
Yes i know re-re encoding woudl be bad..
I thought your issue was a single program!
Dont try and cram too many programs on one single dvd.
Kids watch to much screen anyway!
so i queued to to adobe encorder Cs6
If you still have CS6 loaded, just do the work in CS6, dynamic link to Encore, and set the transcode to "automatic"; it will fill the disk.
Edit: if you don't, use a bitrate calculator and figure the bitrate you need for your disk:
Reading your other thread (how to control playback from a usb drive of individual movie files), I am still puzzled here as to why you can't use a DVD. How many hours of content are you trying to put on one disk? Why can't you use more than one disk?
@stan i can use a DVD and will do that that i will custom make, my goal was this,
I have three kids ages (3 4 6) 2 boys and 1 girl so while driving i was hoping to avoid keep changing DVD's out depending on what the kids want to watch as they all watch something different, my 6 year old wont want to watch barny all day and my girl would not want to watch boys cartoons all day nor would the boys want to watch hours of barbie....
so i was hoping i could fit lots on a 128GB usb drive and use that as the main media, but still have it easisly controlled by a menu so my 6 year old does not have to navigate a explorer type menu
but what i have read so far there does not appear to be a USB menu options so i will just continue with USB..
thank u for the info you taught me something new on ENCORE so thank u that tip helps lots.
