want to create a 150 minute dvd preset on Media encoder. I had mimic'ed the setting from apply compressor but lost those settings. Can anyone provide them for me real quick (bitrate settings, audio settings)?
150 minutes is a lot to fit, will have to reduce the quality using something like 3.6 data rate. Might be fine for some material like a talking head video, while videos with lots of motion would suffer. All depends on content.
Start with the MPEG-2 DVD preset. Definitely use 2-Pass VBR encoding, something like 2.0 min, 6.0 max, with the 3.6 Target/AVG
For audio, you can leave the default PCM audio which generates a .wav file. When you bring the .wav into Encore, it will by default convert to Dolby which is a far smaller file on the DVD.
Do not use motion menus, they will take up space on the DVD that you don't have available
