OK Eddie, I have a pretty good picture of what you are doing.

It looks like you have full HD footage and you are keeping it that way. Good.

It is always good to keep full-res, in case you want to use it later. However, DVDA uses only 1/6 of that resolution. The specs on DVD's are very strict so all the players in the world will be able to play them. To be within spec your footage needs to be: 720x480 pixels; <9.5Mbps (bitrate); in the MPEG-2 format.

Open up a new project in Vegas. Set the project properties to NTSC DV Widescreen (720x480, 29.970 fps). Put your finished movie, (the one you put in DVDA) on the timeline and render it twice. 1 - as MainConcept Mpeg-2 using the template: "DVD Architect NTSC Widescreen video stream", 2 - as Dolby Digital AC-3 Pro using the template "Stereo DVD".

When you have these files open your DVDA project and replace the source video with the Mpeg-2 and the source audio with the AC3 for the feature. (Use the media tab for the movie file.) Your render in DVDA with the new files should be under 2 minutes.

I know it sounds like a lot, but you will get it pretty easy. If you have any problems just ask. I can post some pictures.


Let us know how it works,
