Re: 80 mins on One DVD?

Why is it when I render it out using Sony Vegas Mpeg 2 format that is shows the file size to be 2.68 gig but then when I import that same file onto the Sony Vegas Timeline and try to burn a DVD straight from there that it says the file size is 6.65? I don't understand it! What would be causing this or how do you guys burn your disc with Sony Vegas?

Re: 80 mins on One DVD?

You have to make sure your imported MPEG-2 is DVD compliant. Otherwise, the DVD authoring program will transcode it so you lost a generation of quality, time, and different file size,

Re: 80 mins on One DVD?

Tyson,
first make sure your bitrate is right and the audio is encoded properly. then close out and delete the DVDA project or open a new one, bring the audio/video back in-and save under a different name. Then check the size. If it's close and need to copy the menus from one DVDA project to the new one. Open another instance of DVDA (so you have 2 instances open at once) one with the old project, one with the new, copy the menus from the old to the new and save as (a new name--IE "my project 1, my project 2 etc) and check the file size. It might be a menu messing you up but regardless I've had this happen once or twice and this way worked for me.
