CXD converting a 2.5 hour AVI video to a single layer DVD.
Is it recommended to use which one of the two methods for the best quality?
(1) Set CXD encode to DVD-5 size and burn the result to single layer DVD. This is the easiest.
(2) Set CXD encode to create a folder of VOB files that targets a DVD-9 in size, thereby making CXD generate a faster bit rate and higher quality MPEG-2. When done, I would use a two-pass DVD SHRINK to do the actual compression and perhaps give better results for a DVD-5 output size than CXD doing it the easy way, in methid (1) above.
In both cases, I would have a DVD-5 single layer output.
