Fit 3 hours in a single DVD with DVD architect

Hallo guys,
Could you help me with the settings of Vegas 10 to fit 3 hours of DVD in a single 4.7 DVD?
Thank you

Re: Fit 3 hours in a single DVD with DVD architect

Interesting that I got the exact same question on another forum when I logged on today :)
Here's the Vegas render settings I get with the bitrate calculator I use. Be advised that if you have a lot of fast motion it may not look that good due to the low bitrate. Render a short segment in Vegas, watch it and see what you think before rendering the entire project.
Audio: AC-3 default of 192
Video: 2-pass VBR render. MAX - 5,976,000, AVG - 2,984,000, MIN - 2,240,000

For very long DVD it is better to use a smaller frame size (352x576).

If you can manage it, a DLdvd is more likely to provide the space you need for 3 hours
Or do 2 x single 4.7gb dvd as in Part A and Part B

DVDArchitiect does not have the best encoding. If you have TMPGenc it will do a better job with the similar settings to what Mike suggested. Then bring the file into DVDArchitect.

Re: Fit 3 hours in a single DVD with DVD architect

I've done a few different DVD projects that were 3 hours long, and both were talking head/training-type videos and the quality looked just fine using a 4.7GB DVD. Would not try this on a video with a lot of motion though!

Thanks

Still do a 2-pass VBR but use these render settings.
MIN: 3,696,000
AVG: 6,168,000
MAX: 7,712,000

Re: Fit 3 hours in a single DVD with DVD architect

David, if you're referring to Mark's Bitrate Calculator, that's the same one that I use.
The reason for my lower numbers is that I bump my safety margin up to 5% from the default 1% as I like a bit of extra room, just to be on the safe side :-)
The other change I make is to click the 1 Kilobit = 1,000 bits option (found after clicking "Settings".
If anyone wants it, I keep a copy on my Dropbox account at

I usually do that as well but just went with the default for his purposes.

Leslie is right. Type in your own numbers and save it as a preset for future use. I've got several presets that I use all the time.

Re: Fit 3 hours in a single DVD with DVD architect

Wouldn't a dual layer DVD mean he could avoid the low bitrate issue?
