[QUOTE=olyteddy;1964316]You could author them to DVD files on your HD (regardless of the size) then use DVD Shrink to fit the resulting files to a DVD.[/QUOTE]
That is what I was sugesting he might try with studio, though the only target size it will allow is dvd5 or dvd9 (no custom size).
@rawbyn, just my personal opinion on nero, its not the best at anything, but its the best at everything. In otherwords, anything that nero can do, there is probably a program that can do it better, but that would require buying (and or getting free ones), of dozens of programs. As far as a program that can do all it can do (it has dozens of capabilities), there is nothing beter. There are not any other programs that can do all the things it can do, as well as it can. In most cases, nero works decent enough for most tasks.
To put it another way, nero can do basic video editing, capturing, burning, pvr, htpc front end, video/audio streaming, shrinking (very similar to shrink), transcodeing and reencoding, photo viewing and editing, audio transcoding and editing and probably a lot of other things. There are individual programs that can do each of these things a little beter, but as far as a program that can do all that stuff, its the best.
I have had pretty good luck converting various avi files to dvd with it (I have had a few it didn’t like), but as far as working with camcorder footage, I just recently got my first camcorder so I havent really played with it that much. It does seem to have more options with capturing than studio does but I could be wrong on that.
