I'm making my first dvd, that must be at least 80mins long, of course the files are too big.
have AVCHD footage , the dvd has has 8 chapters, premier has converted to MTS and then Adobe media Encoder to several different formats that I've tried, the smallest file being around 637mb for a 20min clip in mpeg-2 and 561mb in mpeg-4
Now when I add the clip to Encore it takes about 1,1gb on the disk, is this normal ?
The other problem is , as I'm running play whole video in the menu as well as the chapter menu, Encore seems too need the same clip loaded twice, therefore taking 2.2 gb , resulting in a maximum length of 40 mins.
I'm working in 16x9 with Creative cloud and Encore cs6 so no direct link, I've tried media encoder after Premier and also after Encore with no success.
I know nothing about codecs other than I've tried everything that seems logical on media encoders list.
Sorry this is so long but I really need help.
