Compressed project won't fit on DVD
on Jan 24, 2008 at 9:20:16 pm

I edited a FCP project that ended up timing at 1hr. 59 minutes, and 27 seconds.

I exported the project using Compressor, and chose my presets as MPEG-2 120min High Quality encode (choosing "All" for both video and audio).

I then brought this into DVD Studio Pro and proceeded to make the menus and chapters, etc.

First Question: I was surprised that the compressed audio and video were seperate (an aiff and then a m2v). Is that supposed to happen? Did I do something wrong since I had to add the aiff file seperately to the DVD?

Also, now that I have both on there, I'm being told it's too large to fit on the 4.5 GB DVD. My MPEG-2 file is 2.92 GB and my aiff file is 1.28 GB. Plus the templates are using some minimal space.

Is this because my project's too long? Or did I choose incorrect settings?

I'm trying the fast encode right now to see if it will work. Do you know if that quality is drastically different?

One more question! I'm using TDK discs because I've tried others that don't work when burning. Are there other brands that work as well? Thanks!
