Hello to all.
I’m trying to backup Star Wars IV, V and VI by splitting them on two DVD-5 discs for maximum quality. I have the same kind of problem with all of them (also with other long movies like Lord of the Rings).
My question is, why is the transcoder still enabled in these cases? I can see clearly in the bitrate window the original and the transcoded difference. Aren’t two single layer discs enough to hold a dual layer one? I’m using the latest versions of CloneDVD and AnyDVD.
I made another test, just to be sure. I used DVDShrink to re-author the DVD, by selecting only the main title, removed the french language and some subtitles. The output size of DVDShrink was around 6.5 Gb on my harddrive. I was sure like this it is going to work, after all, two single layer discs are holding more information than 6.5. No? Well, I launched CloneDVD, thinking to split it like this on two single layer discs. No way. Using the scissors to split the movie in two, I can never reach a situation when both of the parts are not transcoded… Why is it like this, can somebody enlighten me?
Thank you for your help. I tried to find this information posted in this forum but couln’t find it, sorry if it was already discussed in the past and I missed it.
