Hello,

My dad has EMC 7. We used Videowave to edit a friend's home movies. We added music, trimmed the video and added an intro and ending slide. The total production is 3.5 hours.

Since my dad has Internet Explorer 7, I couldn't use DVD Builder to create menus. Therefore, I only rendered the movie as a mpg in Videowave. The mpg is over 7 GB.

Then I used CyberLink's Power Producer to create the menus and chapters. Afterwards, I tried to burn the production, but it was too large. So I choose to create a video file structure in Power Producer and now I have a Video_TS and Audio_TS folder.

Is there any place that I can take the movie from the Video and Audio_TS folders and split it into 2 DVDs and burn?

Thanks


PS-please ignore the specs in my signature since my editing was done with my dad's computer and he has EMC 7.

There may be another way to do this, but I think the process is similar in Power Producer and EMC 7.

You should be able to save 2 copies of the original movie in the editing portion of the software.   That's VideoWave in EMC 7 and the 'Cut and trim' portion of Power Producer  ( Although it's not separate in Power Producer, so you'll need 2 copies of the 'production.)

Then you cut it in half on each separate production, delete one half, and put each section on a menu. (DVD Builder in EMC 7)  If you want to use the same menu for both productions, that's fairly easy by saving a 'template' in both programs.   The terminology is slightly different, but the principle is the same.

I suspect that at 3.5 hours, you are still going to be too long.   About 1 hour of 'best' quality video will fit onto one 4.7 GB DVD.  Of course, you can double that by using a dual layer DVD, but not all DVD players will recognize them.

You can also just put it on two different discs. I have done that on occasion, just put a panel at the end of the first disc and add text telling them to insert second disc. In fact I did quite a large project that spanned 5 discs. It workedquite well.

Thanks to both of you for writing!

I'm going to go back into Videowave and split the dmsm file by making 2 separate dmsm files and adding a slide saying 'insert disk 2' as you suggested Patty. Then I will go into Power Producer and make 2 separate menus and burn it as if it were 2 separate discs.

Thanks again,

At the risk of telling you something you don't already know......

If you're going to take the video into Power Producer, you're going to have to do a File/ Output production as..... and make it a Video File for DVD authoring, BEST.

And for Best quality, you want 1 hour on each DVD..... whether you use EMC or Power Producer.

thanks for writing. I didn't know about the one hour recommended limit for Best quality.

The movie was originally 1 hour 47 minutes and I had it as Best quality and put it on one disc.  

But after watching the movie, I went  back to edit it and slowed the video speed to half since it was one of those fast old home movies. Doing that doubled the length so now it's over 3.5 hours. I was hoping to have it on only have 2 DVDs though.

Get some RW discs and try different things…

Your original quality may not be high enough to make much difference???

You could try packing all 3.5 hours on one disc and see what it looks like.

You could try splitting it in half and burning one half to see what it looks like.

You could try limiting it to 1 hour at Best quality and see what it looks like.

Hi Jim.

You wrote: "You could try packing all 3.5 hours on one disc and see what it looks like".

I only use single layer DVD discs. 3.5 hours is too long for that, right?

I have had success with Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 4.7GB, 8X speed DVDs, so I only buy that.

Yes, if you want high quality video.   One hour of 'best' per 4.7 GB DVD.

I think Power Producer may have a variable bit option which means that you MIGHT be able to squeeze a little more than an hour onto one DVD.  

If you want a lower quality video, most programs have a 'fit to disk' option.   You can buy one ReWriteable DVD which you can erase and rerecord on for testing purposes.

Personally, I'd choose high quality and split that 3.5 hours into 3 movies and put them onto three DVDs.
