I am new to this forum, fairly new to video production and totally new to Vegas Pro 9 having just up-graded from Pinnacle Studio (which I just played with) now in retirement - I wanna do more!!
OK Introduction out of the way...... I had a 50 min video originally in .avi format which Vegas could not import, so I converted it to mpeg2. I did two simple edits cutting 2 sections and swapping their relative positions.
I saved the project then opened it in DVDArchitect which I wasn't sure about the output settings on so chose the mpeg2 option again. set it as a simple film no titles or menus, just a straight burn to DVD. but it told me that the file size was too large for a standard 4.7g DVD disk, as it was 4.8g! this seemed rather steep for a 50min film which was originally on a DVD as a .avi file.
Anyway, I chose to humour it and inserted a dual layer DVD but part-way through the process (not sure at what point as I went out and left it to do its business) a box appeared telling me I have to insert a chapter somewhere between 00:37 and 00:49 (I think it was).
I have no idea what that means, or how to do it and also question if I made the correct choice decisions for creating to DVD to obtain the best quality.
Any advice welcome (keep it simple, I am!)
