Default Making a DVD

Hi everyone,

I'v captured my home videos from my panasonic digital camcorder (mini dv) using Ulead video studio through firewire and i'v got them in MEPG2 format .
They are in different files e.g in lengths of 1 hr 30 mins , 45 mins , 2 hrs 15 mins ... etc .. etc .. all my files together are over 4 hrs of length and their file size all together is over 15 GB .
Let's say I edit them and put them together and the size comes down to say about 10 GB , can anyone tell me how I could burn the movie onto one DVD . coz the size limit of a standard DVD is 4.7 GB.

One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) If not already DVD-compliant, use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the MPEG to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this (This step may not be necessary, if your MPEG-2 filies are already in DVD compliant format)

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)

**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress

If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")

Let us know of your success ;>}
