    Default DVD bit rates.

    Not a hugely creative video - but hugely informative.
    No wonder some dvds look crap.

    Good info! - I must admit mine are usually 6mbs, which seems the average when VBR is taken into account.
    My opinions are just that . . . Mine. It's not personal, but is based on my emotional and professional reaction to requested critique. If you choose to ignore constructive comments, I'll just assume you're a vanity poster and not posting to improve your filming and editing skills.

    Yes - six seems average - but those that are 9 ish look so much better, and 4 is a joke - nearly as bad as sd digital tv.

    Aint it funny that we are dumping the format befor it was even used to its full potential - and why they dont want to max the data rate to fill the disc is weird... 2.5 hours at the max data rate fills a dual layer disc approx so why many films use a lower bit rate is mad.

    C;early if the film has extras it is best NOT to get a single disc edition.

    The bit rate should be on the packaging - it really should.

    I guess the 9 mbs comes in handy when there are heaps of action packed scenes and loads of laser flash bangs. Something I rarely get in wedding vids for some strange reason.

    ^^^ i bet you wish tho??

    As for high bit rates on static bits - it still matters I think - you dont get those big flat areas of colour with jiggly edges.
