I just purchased Roxio's Easy VHS to DVD for MAC with the hopes of transferring homemade VHS tapes into DVDs.
So far, I have successfully copied the VHS tape onto my Macbook Pro computer and have the files saved on my computer as .mov files.
Unfortunately, I am having difficulties burning these .mov files onto DVDs. My questions are as follows:
1) The "Easy VHS to DVD for MAC" seems a little deceiving, in that after browsing the forums a bit, it doesn't seem as if the software comes with direct DVD burning capability. Is it necessary to purchase another DVD burning program (such as Toast?) or is there a way to do this for free? (I had thought Toast was included in my original purchase, but I guess not…)
2) I plan on burning onto standard DVD + R (Memorex and/or Sony) DVDs with the standard 4.7 GB & 120 min. The .mov files that I now have saved from the original VHS tapes onto my Macbook Pro computer are rather large in size (2 hours of film, yet ~10 GB after using Roxio's product). Why so large? Will this be a problem when it comes to fitting the film on the standard sized DVD?
Thank you in advance for any and all help - I really appreciate it!
