That is All they can hold :o

 

Commercial DVD's are double layered so they hold about twice that AND they use variable bitrate rendering which helps but takes a day or more to do ;)

 

You can lower the bit rate to get more on but your Video Quality will degrade quickly ~ lose of color and blurry indistinct image etc.

 

Best choices are to go to DL discs or split the project onto 2 or more discs !

Roxio is a entry-level DVD-Video authoring software package supporting only limited features and permit only one hour of recording in HQ (using as little compression as possible) to keep the quality of the final result as high as possible.

 

Mid-range and professional hardware and software tools (variable bit-rate & surround sound audio) provide the greatest degree of freedom while consumer products generally offer the least.

 

In 1996 & 1997 when DVD's were released here in the US dual layer disc's were not invented yet or part of the DVD Format. Commercial DVD's released back then were released on mastered pressed single layer DVD and had play times over two hours.

 

Two such early 1996 releases were Tin Cup runtime 2 hours 15 minutes and Twister 1 hour 53 minutes both authored on single layer DVD with Professional Hardware and Software tools.

 

If you need or want better than a entry level DVD-Video authoring software package they are out there.

If you have a DVD player that supports DivX and you want to stay with a single layer disc, you can export the video from Video Wave (Edit Video Advanced) to a DivX file and burn that to a disc.
