I want to know why when i try to burn a dvd that is over an hour and six minutes it loses quality. how can i make it to where it does not lose quality when its over an hour and six minutes long...

 

A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at the best (HQ) quality setting. Any longer and the video has to be compressed and you lose some quality.

 

I bet you used the "Fit-to-disc" quality setting which really does not do a "fit-to-Disc" at all but simply gives your very crappy video.

 

Instead of burning directly to a DVD, uncheck the burn to disc option and select the "create image file" option. Also make sure you have selected the HQ quality setting. After burning to the image file (it has the extension iso, make sure you remember where it is created), use the Burn Image to DVD option and burn that iso file to a DVD. I am sure the quality will be much better.

HEY WALT THANKS FOR THE ADVISE BUT THE QUALITY STILL CAME OUT CRAPPY...THE FOOTAGE IS AN HOUR AND A HALF LONG...I DONT KNOW WHAT IM DOING WRONG BUT I DID WHAT YOU TOLD ME TO DO AND I STILL DID NOT GET ANY GOOD QUALITY BACK ON THE DVD...PLEASE INFORM ME AGAIN...THANKS... :)

No need for all caps…

 

There is no magic here, You are up against the stone wall of DVD Capacity facts!

 

DVD Time – DVD Capacity

4.7Gb:

HQ = 1:06

SP = 1:37

LP = 2:22

ELP = 3:04

 

8.5 Gb:

HQ = 2:00

SP = 2:57

LP = 4:19

ELP = 5:35

 

Anything less than HQ add time by sacrificing Quality... No way around it, that is the way it works. ;)

Okay thanks again but where can i get a dvd that is 8.5Gb... and also can i make copies on a dvd that is 4.7Gb from a 8.5Gb master dvd...

 

Most places that sell discs carry DL (double layer) discs. They are the 8.5Gb.

 

Yes, you can make 4.7 copies of 8.5 discs but you will run into the same "cappy" appearance.

 

A question please. Are you starting with HD video? If so, the issue is that the program outputs to standard defintion (720 by 480) unless you select a HD type output. HD output is AVCHD disc (about 40 or 80 minutes for DL) or blu-ray. In either case, you must have a blu-ray capable DVD. For blu-ray dic, of course you need a blu-ray burner.
