I'm hoping someone can advise me on the best way of tackling my problem.
The way I know how to do this will be very time consuming, so open to lots of suggestions from the experienced out there who can advise on better ways to achieve what I want even if they are not specifically Vegas related.
I've just captured about 20 DV tapes to HDD.
The footage from each tape lives in its own folder.
Folder sizes vary but on average around 13Gb each. So a lot of data
I need to put all this footage (every piece) to DVD (how many DVDs I'm going to burn I don't know )
So here goes ....
The only way I can think of achieving this is to painfully render sizeable chunks of footage from within Vegas and then drop these sizeable chunks into DVD Achitect (staying under approx 4Gb to allow for the menus etc) and then burn to DVD.
Repeat this task until each folder is done.
What do you think?
Working on the fact that any rendering done in Vegas will be very basic, just footage on the timeline ... no overlays, transitions, or soundtracks etc just basic footage on its own.
What would be a good filesize to aim for? And what is the optimum filesize (combined) of footage to import into DVD Artchitect so I don't start running into file space issues.
Hopefully (I would think) there's a much better solution than the above and thats what I'm hoping for .... so please fire away
