Compressing multiple projects for one DVD - File Size
on Jun 4, 2013 at 4:50:24 pm

I need to burn a DVD with a 1-hour talk, as well as some bonus feature interviews and trailers. When I used FCP 7, I would export from Compressor 3 using the "90 Minute DVD" or "120 Minute DVD" presets. I then create the DVD from DVD Studio Pro.
Now that I am in FCPX, I still need to use DVD Studio Pro (for the multiple menu items), so I send the sequence to compressor 4. But there is only one disc preset. Since I need to send multiple projects to the disc, this preset does not take that into account, and the MPEG-2 files are too large to all fit on one disc.
My question is, what settings can I tweak in Compressor 4 to allow for multiple video tracks (in this instance one 1-hour talk, and a 30-minute interview) to fit onto the same DVD?
Please let me know if the question is unclear, or if I need to clarify anything.
Thank you for any advice.
