Thanks

1st rule: NERO birning Rom CAN NOT write dvd9 images or VIDEO_TS forlder correctly!
Nero split large (8,5Gb) images by 50|50... It is not correct!

If you know, how many sectors in layer0, you can write your image by ImgBurn (dvd_decryptor's son)
by setting Layer0 size.
If you not know layer0 size, you can write your VIDEO_TS folder by ImgBurn. ImgBurn can check IFOs, and correctly write files. ImgBurn will ask you - where you want set LayerBreak, and offer variations.
Attention! BEFORE you start recording you must set book-type for your DVD-Recorder
Book-type for +R DL disks must be DVD-ROM (see programs's help).

I know - you can do it! :)

from Sonic Scenarist help:

Dual-Layer Discs
A singles-sided, single-layer DVD disc can hold up to 4.7 GB of content. For larger projects you can create a single-sided, dual-layer disc (8.5 GB), or even a double-sided, dual-layer disc (17.08 GB).

When creating dual-layer discs, you must specify the Layer Break that determines which files will reside on Layer 0 and which will reside on Layer 1. In Scenarist, you set the Layer Break by specifying the first file on Layer 1 of the disc. If you change your mind, you can subsequently remove the Layer Break. You can also jump to the Layer Break, which is useful if the project contains many files and you need to easily locate the file that contains the Layer Break.

Layer breaks - parallel or opposite:

Parallel The disc is formatted so that the data tracks of both layers are written from the disc center to the outer edge. This option provides slower transition times for playback across the Layer Break, since the DVD player drive head transitions from the outer edge of the first layer back to the disc center of the second layer.

Opposite The disc is formatted so that the data track for the first layer (Layer 0) is written from the disc center to the outer edge, and then continues with the second layer (Layer 1) from the outer edge back to the disc center. Select this option when you need the shortest interruption in playback across the Layer Break, since the laser beam transitions from the outer edge of the first layer to the outer edge of the second layer. When using Opposite, the size of Layer 1 must be smaller than that of Layer 0.

Thanks Again Frippy,
with your help i think i am going in right direction.
i found more information on dual layer mastering on Gearsofware forums.
and downloaded their layer brake calculator.
and will try to use their trial version of gearpro mastering tool.
Best Regards

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!

I try to write DVD+R DL by GEAR's help :)
My Video_TS folder was created by Sonic Scenarist 3.01....
Hm...Gear CANT create LB in sector i need!!!
Then, GEAR CAN'NOT set book-type to DVD-ROM (it is NEED for all +R DL disks that you write!)
And....GEAR NOT ANALYSE ifo files from project - my Scenarist VIDEO_TS files was relocated not correctly!
And....WHAT IS A PROGRAM, when need to calculate LB by Excell? :)
And....See that you right by IfoEdit?

GEAR Mastering need to:
Write DVD5/DVD9 to DLT, no more!

ImgBurn:
- FULL IFOs parsing
- Book-type Settings
- create Image-file from your VIDEO_TS
- write image files by setting sector number for LB
- write VIDEO_TS folders to DVD+/-R DL (!!! i'm NOT use -R DL because compability problems with old dvd-players)
- can RELOCATE LB (not sure - need?????)
- can ask you - WHERE is layer break must be
- FREE! (gear cost???)
- and many others....

This is not presentation, and i not a agent :)
I'm expert - authoring, reauthoring, transcoding, recording.... :)

OK, Frippy then what is the best way to set a layer brake in ImgBurn.
when i open my image in Imgburn and try to burn it, it give me only one option for layer brake and in rating it shows 'Good'.
how can i change that to better layer brake location.
to me it looks like you have done lot of study with layer brake.
and i am very thankful you sharing it with me.
and i will stay away from using Gearpro.
