How To Shrink/compress A Video File?

Question

After transferring a family video approximately 1 hour and 15 mins. i added a 5 minute montage video set to music. Both the captured video and the montage are .dsmm files.

 

My DVD is a 4.7 GB and the whole project is 4.785 GB. What is your recommendation to shrink this file to burn it on the blank DVD? I asked my friend what her song would be for this time period (thinking I could use a smaller music file for the montage.) Unfortunately, she answered EXACTLY the one I was using. (this shocked me ... out of ALL the song possibilities.... i guessed on the same one she wanted.)

 

I guess I could just use 2 dvds, but I'd rather not. :blink:

If you combine the two in Videowave, you can set the output to fit on a 'standard' DVD and it will shrink it to fit.

 

You probably will need to render it again, but save it as an image (iso or c2d file) first

 

Experiment with a RW disc first and if you get it wrong, you can erase

Another option would be to use DVD DL disks if you can burn them and want to spend the extra money. There would be no loss in quality due to compression that is associated with squeezing more onto less. However, you might not notice the drop in quality with a standard DVD since you are very close in size.
