I'm new to the community. This is my first post. I'm intelligent. I do not know everything. I'm willing to learn. Here goes my question(s):
I know changing bit rates etc. to make media fit on dvd's CAN cause video quality issues. I avoid this at all cost when possible. Dvd's are cheap. However, I'm curious if anyone would know a little about the percentage "indicator", within the button that reads "fit to disc". It's more of a statement really. Based on MY settings, (I have included screen shots), bit rate, MPEG, etc, what would be the approximate percentage my project would have to be, in order for DVD Architect to stop complaining that my file size is to large to burn, (even when I've selected shrink to disc)? I'd use (1) dvd9, and, if still needed, (1) dvd5 I suppose.
I've found no reference in the software manual or other posts that deal with my some what odd question. In one of the screen shots, one can see on a DvD5 single layer, the percent would be 305% of a 4.7gb disc size. That's ridiculous. When I change the DVD media to 8.5gb, or a Dvd9, it's still over 100%. I'm curious the magic percentage the programmers deemed appropriate to say.............. "Nope, not compressing it. No "Shrink To Fit" here. It's going to look to bad to compress".
