I am very new to this so thanks in advance for what is probably a very basic inquiry. There is just so much software that I am not sure which ones are ‘soup-to-nuts’ programs and which ones can only do certain things. I will only be burning a large amount of home vids (new baby in the house) and just want to understand the process. The programs I have are:
Cyberlink Studio w/
Power director NE
Nero smartstart essentials
I have created picture discs successfully with Power Producer, but when I moved on to some home videos the run time is too long. I have authored them in Power Director and the run time is about 2 hours. When I open them in Power Producer to burn them, the file size is around 8200 megs. Is there something I am missing? Is it a matter of putting it on two discs or do I need to use some other software to compress it? If it needs to go on two discs, do I create two separate ‘movies’ in Director and then burn the two or do I create one movie and let some other software decide where they need to split during the burn? Great thanks! I am sure the solution is very easy.
