Default VHS to DV to DVD

What I have done :
Captured VHS via Sony DV cam as DV file to HD.
Some 100++ GB's.

Tried EasyCD/DVD creator to make DVD's from my DV file. One successful sample disk.

When attemting to make full DVD's i always seem to overfill the DVD after hours of encoding and have to restart.

Thus I think encoding first would be a good idea. Or maybe just create image to disk and then use a shrink programme??

Tried TMPG to make DVD compiant MPEG 2. But my DVD authoring software (EasyCD/DVD and Studio DV 8) seems to reencode them. Dont understand why. Any suggestions.

I do like to use Studio 8 due to the extensive tools and effects available in this package.

Any hints to what would make my life a little easier.

The basics steps for transfering VHS (or any other material) to DVD are:

1. Capture the material
2. Encode to MPEG2 using highest bitrate - 980000/Sound to AC3 - 192kbps
3. Author these two files with IfoEdit
4. Shrink it down with DVD2One/DVDShrink etc.

One rule that you must remember - do not put more than 60 minutes of video onto dvd if the source is noisy.

Default Maybe some one can help?

I have an AverDVD EZMAKER USB2 MOVIE FACTORY PROGRAMME to change my VHS videos to DVDs. What is happening is that when I try to shrink a two hour VHS it accepts the time shrinkage but when I try to copy to the DVD disk it says no spce available on disk. At times it start to copy then stops for lack of disk space in my writer. Can someone suggest what is happening? Is there some shrink programme I am missing? On the desktop I can see the whole VHS FILES BOTH VIDEO and Audio.

Why are there no replies!?

Rather unhelpful or else no more experts are around!

None seems to take the challenge.
