ConvertXtoDVD Quality/Size Question

I've converted 2 avi files to dvd using the medium quality setting, both have ended up being 2.42gb. My question is if I use the high quality/slow encoding setting will it fill up the entire the dvd?

Hi there,

Please provide us a full conversion log.

If your input files are low quality, you probably already have the best ConvertXtoDVD can do with those files.

Check your logs, when I get the best, I usually get something around 8300kb/s bitrate output

Yes, unless you avis don't have enough bitrate to fill the space even when using their maximum bitrate.

Go to "Settings - Encoding", choose "Low quality, Fast encoding" to have a try.
Almost all dvd creators have only three different output DVD video quality adjusting options. If users can set the 'output quality' to any value by draging a setting bar, it will be better. This will prove they can fit output videos to DVD-R.

Re: ConvertXtoDVD Quality/Size Question

File size determines audio/video sync pblms.

TEST A
Took (1) 0.98 GB song Avi made from Adobe 6.5
Processed with ConvertXtoDVD
Result = ok

TEST B
Took (1) 0.98 GB song Avi made from Adobe 6.5
Added it 7X to total 35 min
Processed with ConvertXtoDVD
Result = ok
________________________________________

From earlier tests, 7.5 GB and 18.5 GB files had sync pblms with audio / video. Files 0.98 GB synced ok - even when added to ConvertXtoDVD seven times (multiple times) to mimic a larger file.

What are you referring to LF1456?
Your post is not responding to topic.

And - if you jsut copy same GOOD file over and over, it is NOT the same as using big BAD file.

Re: ConvertXtoDVD Quality/Size Question

was wondering if anyone knew how to sustain video color when converting .avi.

I downloaded a video, opened up ConvertXtoDVD, loaded the video and set the encoding at high quality/slow encoding, set the conversion at highest priority and it averaged a 4800kb/s bitrate. I burned it and noticed the color was a slight bit foggier than the downloaded copy.

Anybody know how to replicate the original file accurately without sacrificing a little color?

Re: ConvertXtoDVD Quality/Size Question

Youwill rarely get anywhere near the bitrate of full length Mpeg 4 movies when converting to Mepg 2. Mpeg 4 does much more compression, so there's no way to preserve all that data in an Mpeg 2 file unless you can make your final file many gigs larger.

Which would probably be a good idea & then shrink to fit with DVD Shrink or CloneDVD.

Re: ConvertXtoDVD Quality/Size Question

What is the use of first keeping all detail and produce DVD-9 result if you then shrink it to DVD-5?
Quality is lost - shrinking is good for non-important data like menus, extras etc, but if final movie original DVD is larger that 7Gb then shrinking it to DVD-5 will decrease quality noticeably.
