How about 1 moive split to 2 DVD's?

I know this is reverse thinking, but if I ask the question, and get an answer, perhaps there are others that will also get an answer on doing something similar.

CASE: Pearl Harbor

SITUIATION: main movie is spread 80 some percent on first disc then the small remainder of the movie is on 2nd disc

PROBLEM: Main movie is so large that the resulting image in DVD2ONE on disc one is not good… rather pixilated to be kind. Second disc from rip/DVD2ONE/BURN is great… and only takes up about 1/2 of the DVD disc.

SOLUTION: Take the burden of compression and spread it more evenly for the movie by having the movie split more 50 / 50 rather than 80/20 . Since there is so much empty space on the 2nd disc, more info could have easily been utilized on 2nd disc.

Rather than try to put the whole movie onto 1 disc, as I was thinking originally, I need to see how to change the original structure of the movie and split it more evenly B4 DVD2ONE has a chance to do it’s magic.

Has anyone played around with this movie?

BTW the 2 disc I burned with Nero do play fine on stand alone Apex DVD player… just not very good on the first one is all.


@ vljenewein,

I believe the provided link details how to Split a DVD to 2 DVD-Rs is what you are looking for.


Just how many minutes of video can you fit on 4.7GB? I guess it would be larger with 5.1 sound…?

I’m not flaming you but you seem to have the link to this website in almost all your threads. Maybe as a suggestion, you’ll type less if you put the link in your signature? Most people with websites do. I see you don’t have one so good idea, right? :smiley:

For me, I’m just too lazy sometimes to come up with one here.

@ 2COOL,

I don’t have any affiliation to the Web Site that I reference in many of my postings at this forum.

Just attempting to pass the word about how to correctly use the freeware Decision Development products IfoEdit v0.95 and/or VobEdit v0.52 to; DVDsSoftware; DVD2one Forum Members. These tools appear to be useful when used in conjunction with DVD2one.

If my participation in this forum is an irritant I apologize.
