Regarding various options: Fit, HQ, etc in MY DVD


Rayi

Question

Hello. I was wondering what kind of quality do you end up with when you use the option: Fit, in MY DVD, as opposed to HQ, SP, etc, if your within the correct time limit on a DVD: 1 hour. I tend to stay within the hour limit, as I usually want the highest quality; It seems to look OK, when I use "Fit". Sometimes, I forget to set it to HQ. I have this idea that "fit" tries to achieve the highest quality possible. thanks

The quality is poorer, if you exceed 1 hour in your production. Use the HQ, and burn to an .iso file or Folder set. If the production is over 1 hour long, when you use Disc Copier to burn it to a DVD, the quality will be better than if you use the Fit to disc.

So, if you do not exceed 1 hour, then using "fit" would be the same as "HQ". It would give you the highest quality possible. I was wondering whether I should create another iso to my hard drive using "HQ", since I forgot to set it to HQ, as "Fit" is the default (and my video is only 57 minutes). I was assuming that you would get a poorer quality it you exceeded 1 hour.

You can try it to see if it makes a difference. I NEVER use the "fit to disc" option, even for productions of less than 1 hour.

 

If you exceed 1 hour of video, the "fit to disc" option will definitely reduce the quality.

Haven't really experimented with it in MyDVD.

 

Starting in V7 we found that Disc Copier had the best compression engine and logic. You would burn the project in Best Quality using MyDVD to an ISO file. Then invoke DC to burn to disc.

 

Since it works, we have not experimented with using the Fit option in V9…
