Hi

I have recorded a digital video and wanted to copy it to a DVD. It is 9.41G and 59min long and 1280x720 pixels . If a "Hollywood" movie that runs for 90 min fits on a DVD how do I fit my 59min on a DVD?

How badly will this IQ?

Thanks

When you export your movie, depending on the software, you can set the target size so it will fit on your Single Layer or Double Layer DVD... Quality is reduced to get the movie to fit. The longer the movie, the more the compression. You should not see much of a reduction in IQ, since you are not very far from the 8.4GB of a dual layer DVD. Of course if you are going to have menus they will take up space as well.

Hollywood usually uses dual layer DVD's and compression to fit.

You can do DVD that does HD, but bluray is much better suited.

To burn to DVD I would recommend down converting to SD and choose a bit rate accordingly. My practice is to use the highest bit rate before it hits the size limits.

As a rule of thumb though, no higher than 6.5MB/s as some DVD players will have playback issues starting at around 6.8-7MBPS. Keep it around 6MB/s as audio increases that bit rate further.
