i know this has been covered before but i cant seem to find a definitive answer.

when i open mydvd to create a dvd menu, it says at the bottom there is 1:06:21 time left is this accurate? i have 1 hour and 6 minutes?

i just want to be sure i dont have too much footage.




Yes and no. You can get one hour of best quality video on a standard DVD; up to two hours at a somewhat reduced quality.


If the project is slightly over the one hour, then he best way of fitting the video to a disc is to make sure the project settings are set to high quality; not fit on disc. You can then burn the project to an ISO file (some prefer burning to folders). When you render the file to an ISO (or folders) the program selects the highest bit rate (quality) that will just fit that project to the disc. For a standard definition project that is 9 Mb/sec. For long play the bit rate is as low as 3 Mb/sec. For trivia purposes: For blu-ray, the high quality mpg2 codec the bit rate is 28 MB/sec.
