    I have captured 3 hrs worth of TV footage on my Pioneer 920 and burnt onto a DVD, I am very happy with the playback quality however when I import this footage into VideoStudio 9 to create some menus etc the programme says that I need 11 gig of space to burn it back onto DVD ? How do I capture the footage in Videostudio 9 and yet keep the same file size ?? I only want to add a motion menu :(

    To get a file of that length and size onto a DVD you will have to select a much lower bitrate, when you go to the Disc burning module of VideoStudio select the disc template manager and then select the "SP4" option which will give you a bitrate of 2500 kpbs which should allow you to get a 3 hour video on a standard DVD.

    Thanks for the info. Just wondering how come my Pioneer 920 can sqeezee 3 hrs of near perfect footage onto a DVD yet I supose with VS 9 I would end up with far inferior footage using a much lower bitrate. If the Pioneer has already compressed the data to fit onto a DVD why does Ulead have to encode it again ? Confused :rolleyes:
