7 Hour Project to Blu-Ray!!!!

Hello all!

So I'm dipping my toes into the blu-ray pool and authoring my first discs of a particular nature.

I have a project that has the following credentials:

Length: 7hrs 20mins
Format: HDV / m2t
Rendering out to: MPEG2 (H.264 will probably take years?)
NLE: Vegas 9 (of course)
DVD/BDR Author App: DVD Architect Pro 5

Now the million dollar question(s) are:

What is the best way to go about putting the above project onto blu-ray?
How many discs (25GB or 50GB) can I expect to use?
What would be the best bit-rate settings for the project to ensure a decent image?

Basically I am trying to determine the best workflow for the above project. I don't really want the film to cover more than 2 x 50GB blu-ray disc and if I can get it to fit on one 50GB disc then even better!! But of course I want to maintain a decent image quality

I am hoping somebody can aid me in this process so I don't end up pulling all my hair out!!

Many thanks in advance and I'm sorry if this has been covered before or if I've missed out vital details, but am here to respond :o)

Sunny

Must be an Indian Wedding?
I would do 2 50GB at 25000kbit/s average with 384kbit/s for audio, I don't know Vegas but this would be the bitrate for your project.

Spot on Khoi Pham, Indian wedding indeed (mammoth!!)

Thanks for the recommended settings, I had a play around with a bit rate calculator after posting and 25Mbps seemed to be a good option, so many thanks for confirming.

Now just dreading the render time - hope it won't be too many hours/days!!
