DVD annoyance, mastered it with Roxio

Postby home4sale2 on Wed Mar 02, 2005 9:11 pm

Hi, newb here.

Just bought my Plextor 716A that came with EZ DVD Creator Basic software. Getting used to some annoyances about the software and some limitations, learning a lot.

I transfered a DV file from my Sony Camcorder using the Mpeg2 option, single file, about 4.2GB. As soon as I add title, the size jumps to 5.2GB which means I can't add it to a single DVD. This is without creating chapters (which I noticed doesn't add to the size significantly). Where is the overhead?

Second problem is that I cut off the last 20 minutes of the Video to fit it onto a single DVD (this was my first burn so I was just itching to get started). I created a main menu, animated, added sound, changed skin etc. then chapters underneath the main menu (only one). The problem is that even though I can scroll through the menu/chapters, the video starts as soon as I put it into the DVD player. Just weird and it defeats the reason to put menus. What am I doing wrong?
