I just started using NVE2 V 18.104.22.168. I had a series of Hi-8 movies, which, when captured into a Project file totaled about 4.6 gigs - which, the program told me was too large for the DVD. I asked to program to try a compression, but afterwards was told the file was still too big.
I am relatively new to this video processing stuff, but I have been using DVD-X-Copy Platinum for a few weeks and successfully compressing 7+ gigs onto a DVD with no apparent loss of quality.
So, I wonder if the compression algorythms in Nero are really so poor compared to DVD-X-Copy, or am I doing something wrong in NVE?
Is there a way to compress 5 gigs or so in NVE to a DVD? I see the incredible capability of NERO Recode to compress files, also, I read about sw like DVD Shrink, but am not sure if they can help within the context of a NVE Project file.
The volume of info on video processing on the net is overwhelming and much of it seems oriented to working with ripped VOB files and such, I would just like to be able to work within the context of less technical approaches that are provided by DVD-X-Copy and NVE.
