I'm trying to help out a non profit whose producer got Sick and had to bow out.
Shot in 1980 progressive
Edited in premiere and authored in encore
First I had to fix a wildly fluctuating audio level and fix other audio issues.

Once done I replaced media and burned a new dual layer DvD which was about 6 GB.

They had a glass master made and it has fast forward and rewind problems.

I made an ISO file and used fit to disc on a single layer DVD with toast titanium and the issues are gone.

Any reason to try to fix the dual layer if the single layer works fine? Is it bad advice to have the client go this route?

Will the quality be much better?

Thx larry

There is no good reason to use Dual Layer for 90 minutes. At 90 minutes on a single-layer DVD, the bit rate is plenty high to keep good quality with a good encoder. Dual Layers have numerous compatibility issues. I would only use them as a last resort.

Have fun!

Agreed, single-layer is perfect for 90 minutes. And no need to pay for a glass master, most places now will accept a DVD-R or the ISO file and burn copies from it.
