Okay our movie is finally finished, with much help from the members of these forums.
All total, when I export the entire sequence with all of the clips together at 48mhz I get a 2.0GB file. I am guessing this is probably close to the amount that will have to be encoded onto a dvd?
Since that will obviously not fit on a DVD I am wondering what the best way to compress things is, or if that is my only option.
Premier Pro v 7.0
AMD Athlon XP 1500
1GB 533 MHx DDR2 SDRAM
(Obviously I am hoping not to lose quality too much. I mean, how come big-budget films have super good quality on DVD? Also the movie is going to be shown on a big screen in case you know anything about that.)
