4.7g_7.3g_2hrs

Question

Is it true 4.7G is the most still photos & slideshows of still photos you can put on a DVD?

 

How much video? Right now Im only concerned with photos & slide shows, but need to understand posts referring to videos.

 

One of your members said Disk Copier could compress up to 7.3G in an ISO file onto a 4.7 DVD.

 

When I tried to create a 7.3G ISO Image File with VideoWave slideshows using DVD Builder, it quit at 4.7 with errors. It worked fine with less than 4.7

 

What should I have done?

The rule of thumb is one hour of video on a 4.7 GB DVD.

 

You can get more than one hour by burning to an 'image file' (iso) instead of the DVD. Then use Disk Copier to burn the image file to the DVD.

 

However, most people say that the quality of the video/slideshow will suffer.

What happens if you nuse a DL (double layer) DVD disk, assuming one has a DL burner ??

 

Frank........

 

In that case, you can get slightly less than 2 hours onto a DVD and it will not compress the 'image file' or it will just burn to the DVD if that's the option you choose.

 

However, this person asked specifically about 4.7 GB DVDs.

If you create a slideshow on a DVD you are actually creating a "regular" movie DVD, that is, your slideshow is converted to a video. As such you can only get 1 hour of video on a DVD at the best quality setting. To get around this limitation, burn your video to an iso (image) file using DVD Builder. If your final project is greater then 4.7Gb, DVD Builder will give you a warning about this. Just ignore the warning by hitting Yes in the message box option. Once the iso file is created, use DiscCopier to burn the iso file to a DVD. The file will be transcoded to to fit on the DVD, there will of course be some loss of quality due to the fact that the file has to be compressed to fit the DVD. I have attached a screen shot of the setup to create the iso file
