Do you happen to also know the best way to reduce a project size? Cut out a picture, a song. Or do I just need to reduce video length.. Cut music on menu?

 

My last 'movie' is 5.06 GB if I want BEST. It will fit if I want good. What much quality do I lose buring GOOD as appossed to BEST? It is a video of my kids...so I'd like best look and sound.

 

My disc is 4.7 GB

 

For me, it doesn't save the changes in the custom template but the individual files that use it do remember the color changes. Others have confirmed that this is a little bug in v. 7.
Can you answer one more question???

All my projects start out oversized. Here's how to do it but it takes a little time:

 

1. Output at best quality to an 8.5 dual layer ISO

 

2. Use DiskCopier to save the video folders to your HD (remember to save to 8.5 dual layer)

 

3. Run the VOB files through FixVTS to remove Roxio transcoding glitches that prevent DVDShrink from working

 

4. Run DVDShrink which will output a 4.7 GB ISO

 

5. To remove audio sync problems and audio hiccups (if any) see this thread.

Steps 1 and 2 can be integrated by burning directly to a video folder set in the HD instead of an ISO file.

 

Edit: I have to verify when I get home tonight if EMC7.5 offers the option to burn to a video folder set. :)

dvdmama,

 

For best look and sound on a 4.7 GB DVD, make your project LENGTH less than 60 minutes.

The option to burn to 4.7 or 8.5 DL disk size is at the bottom of the DVDBuilder window. You don't need a DL burner to choose this option.

 

Actually - I think you do need a dual layer burner for that - you can't burn a dl disc in a burner that doesn't support it.

 

I think the dreaded Typonese plague just struck again :lol:

Split into two projects with at most 60 minutes in duration for each one. That is, you will create two DVD discs.

 

 

Mine right now is only 1 hr 4 min. then the menu, chapter etc put it over the 4.7. (Videowave said i was at 4.5GB) So I will try to cut some video out if there is no other way other than to get a new DVD burner.

 

With a dual layer burner, I assume you can burner single and dual layer disks. Just depends on what you put in it....?????

If you have a dual layer drive, yes it will handle both d/l and standard media

 

However, to be totally honest, any loss in quality for something that small over one hour is so slight you probably won't even notice.

 

Just make the iso image and open that with Disc Copy and it will make the file fit the 4.3 GB disc

YES! You can produce a DL ISO without having a DL drive. You just can't BURN it. DVDShrink fits the DL ISO to a 4.7 GB disk that you CAN burn.

 

FWIW, ALL my productions are 72-75 minutes and they fit just fine on a 4.7 disk using the method I outlined above. They look d@mn good too!

To be absolutely truthful, I always made the iso file and opened that with Disc Copy and never looked at size (I do have a d/l drive) and burnt that to a standard DVD - never noticed any degradation on the TV (but the definition of that isn't that great anyway)

 

The point I'm trying to make tho is that a 4 minute over-run is NOT going to make any noticable difference to the final producion (unless you examine it in a high frequency oscilloscope)
