What is the size of the file?
What is the format, and the full specs. of that file?
>a video file
When you have a SOURCE file, such as DV AVI, it takes up about 13Gig per hour of video
When you create a DVD, that file is transcoded by PreEl to MPEG2, which is highly compressed and is also converted to the VOB format used on a DVD
The other part of creating a DVD is for PreEl to create the special file structure need to play in a DVD player connected to a TV
Put a commercial DVD in your drive sometime, cancel playback, then use Windows Explorer to look at what is on the DVD
Hi Bill, I am trying out PE 9 and imported a .avi file wich was created via conversion from dvr-ms to .avi H.264 by MCEBuddy. The file imported OK, I cut out the commercials and created the menue for the DVD. When burning to DVD I selected quality "Fit to available space"? and it started to encode. After this it told me it cant fit it on the DVD. I had to burn to a file and it would only do it when I selected the quality manually. Used DVDShrink to burn to the DVD. When I tried to burn to the disk with the default setting "Fit to available space", it told me there is not enough room, but I have 150G left on the disk, so I did not find out how big the file would have been. I had no problems using PE 4 doing the same thing. Am I missing again the most simplest thing, or is there a problem.
