This is incorrect, what the posts should refer to is that under the DVD standard you can copy about 1 hour of movie to a DVD using Best Settings (8000Kbps). This is true of all packages, so investesting in Pinnacle will not necessarily overcome that particular problem. Incidentally you can get 90 minutes of video on a standard single layer DVD using 6000kpbs.
all the info on this site about ulead and its sounds as if i can only copy 1hour of film using this.
The fact of the matter is that you can copy almost as much video as you like, using any package, subject to your system contraints (OS, disk space etc).
COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
