Firstly what hardware and software did you use to capture your videos and in what format have you captured your video files? DV-AVI files captured over Firewire are typically 13GB per hour... this will be compressed down to around 4.7GB when burnt to a DVD. The DV-AVI is transcoded to MPEG2/VOB files on the DVD. However you may be starting with MPEG2 files... these are already compressed. Dependant on the ultimate quality you require you could fit a 6GB MPEG2 file on to a standard 4.7GB DVD by slightly reducing the bit rate.
Thanks for your reply.
They are mpg files. I just want to split and save each file to DVD

Do you want to burn as a DVD video or data file? Assuming a DVD video... place the video on the timeline. Place the cursor where you want to split the video, then use the scissors tool, at the bottom of the monitor window, to cut the video. Select the second half and delete. Then go to Disc Menus to add a menu to your DVD and then go to Share>DVD and burn your DVD. Then repeat for the second half of your DVD, deleting the first half and burning the second half.
If you dont want a DVD menu go straight to Share>DVD after deleting half of the video file.
Take a look at the tutorials over on Muvipix at the link below to see how to use DVD markers and use DVD menus:
OK. That sounds straight forward enough. Thanks for your response.
