Video Bitrate Too High

Yesterday, no problem, today I can't seem to get the Studio Pro 3 to build the files. The files are a total of 1.7GB, not too big. I have trashed the preferences and rebuilt. Is there any suggestions you might have. Thanks for any assistance to this quagmire.

What bit rate did you encode at? The file size is irrelevant.

I don't know the rate, in my preferences I have it set for a minimal of 4 with a max of 8. But it is confusing. In the DVD there are 6 videos and a slide show. It chokes on one of them. When I moved the videos around in their order it went through everything until it got to this video. All the other videos were output the same way. I have been experimenting all day with no luck. I am using the preset HQ 60 min variety. I have been trying to dumb down this particular video--smaller .ipr's out of Live
Type. Is any of this helpful to ascertain some work around. Thanks for your thoughts and valuable experience.

The LiveType ipr file size does not have a bearing on the DVD bitrate. Have a peek through the manual regarding Compressor and MPEG-2 creation. You need to lower the bitrate setting of the video causing the error. I'd suggest keeping the max well below 8Mbps.

If your encode is staying up ariund 8Mbps and you used PCM audio, your total bitrate is at the max for DVD, which is way too high to play successfully off a DVD-R.

I have reset the droplet lower. I have only been working on the one video within the DVD where the build is choking. I am about to build the newest iteration. I am making a mistake to only be working on the one video since it is the one that chokes the build, or should I be redoing all of them? Thanks for your help

The problem was in Compressor and Bill lead the way to new thinking about the problem. I had to go back into Compressor and reset down (ever so slightly) my encode for the Mpeg-2 file 7.1 down to 6.7. It worked. I left Audio as it was and I am back in action. Thanks to those you responded.
