I recently completed my first movie and want to transfer it to DVD.
As I was making the movie, I saved out small clips (approx 10-15 minutes) and played them in the DVD player to test it and make sure it worked. All was well, until I finished the movie. When I saved the entire movie and converted it to DVD, I ran into trouble burning it to disc.
The default compilation setting is ISO, which is only good up to 2GB. My movie is 3.3GB (50 minutes), so I did a little research and determined I needed to use the UDF compilation, as opposed to ISO. I have Nero Express (which is ISO only), and downloaded the evaluation version of full Nero, so I could use UDF.
When I burned the video to the disc using UDF, I got all the data on it, but the compilation failed and now my DVD player wonâ€™t play the disc. The player gives the error “This type of disc not supported.” I tried different combinations of the settings and nothing worked. Arghh!
So Iâ€™m looking at using an ISO compilation and either cutting almost half of our movie out, or splitting it between two discs.
I know I should be able to do it â€“ the average commercial movie is 6 or 7GB and 1.5 hours. Iâ€™ve only got 3.3GB and 50 min â€¦ sigh â€¦
Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
This is my first time here, please be gentle!
