Thread: My DVD authoring tool balloons video size!

  1. Default My DVD authoring tool balloons video size!

    I've just done a set of five separate videos to be burned in one DVD, and they total 4.4Gb. Just a nice size to fit on one DVD.

    I am using Sony DVD Architect and it wants to expand this all out to 6Gb !!! (My front end animations are nothing really).

    I have rendered these five videos at approx MPG2 720x576.

    My question is: can I re-render these videos at a lower screen-size or bitrate (or something else) to reduce their size but, at the same time, maintain a certain quality so they can fit on one DVD?

    There are options at the prepare stage that allow you to lower the bit rate a tad so you can squueze the project onto one disc.

    Don't overlook the audio track size. Some DVD authoring software defaults to LPCM which is huge. Use AC3 if you have that option.
