File too big for DVD

by Joe
(NS, Canada)


I rendered 105 minutes of HD video to SD in order to make a DVD, which I thought held 120 minutes of video. DVD architect is telling me that 105 minutes of video is too much for the disc. The only way I can figure out to make the video fit is to reduce the bitrate by about 60%. I assume this will reduce picture quality significantly. How can I put 120 minutes of high quality video on a 120 minute disc? I just don't understand.

Hi Joe

There are a couple of thoughts to solve your problem

1 - read this Q&A- you can play with the rendering some
Rendering Video with Sony Vegas

2 - I'd publish in HD since consumers have come to expect this. Why not break your file into chapters and use multiple DVD's. There's no law requiring it all to fit on one DVD. Many courses use multiple discs just to solve this issue

3 - I'd use Kunaki to create your DVD
