Maximum time on a DVD???
on Jul 26, 2018 at 1:04:06 pm

I have 2x 6 hour VHS tapes to get to DVDs.
This exceeds by a factor of 10 or so the maximum
Sized project I’ve ever done.
Have yet to transfer tapes yet. Assuming 4x3.

What’s the maximum you’ve ever put on one
single layer DVD. ????

I have put as much as 3 hours on a single layer DVD, but it was a lock-down talking head shot so it compressed nicely. For most typical videos, I would not push past two hours usually.

For VHS to DVD transfers, I have a stand-alone DVD recorder unit that was under $200, with presets for 1 or 2-hour record modes direct to DVD. That's the most cost-effective way to do these, versus capturing the tape, converting to MPEG-2, authoring for DVD, then burning. Too much labor. Although if you need to do color correction or cut stuff out, that forces the latter method then.

Thanks

If it’s a consumer camera, it most likely will need cc.
I do this as I capture, along with audio correction if necessary.
Have a Videotek color corrector I got on cheap and restored it
with new rotary encoders

Let me improve on prior post.
I playback YC off vcr to DPS framesync with NR, and embed
Processed Audio if necessary in serial digital. That is fed to CC and then to MX02 all prior to capture.

As it turns out... There will be editing needed, and Color Correction needed. Audio this time is good... SO... It will take longer... and contain at least 4 edited pieces per DVD...
It's time to turn my mind off, and just do the work!!!
