DivX for video compression. Your going to loose the ability to play in most DVD Players.

If you want to use it in the DVD player your going to need to split it.

Someone know of something else?

I was going to say split it too.

Unless you want to allow your video software to save the file with lesser quality video.

I'm not up on the video formats, but can't you convert to MPEG2 for playback on DVD? I'm not sure of the compression of the WMV format but a good MPEG2 converter will give you some control over the compression and video quality.

The newer MPEG4 format may even be better, but you are looking at trying to get a 2X compression.

Not sure if it'll help you - but I have a utility to convert dual layer DVDs to single layer DVDs when I copy, er, backup movies.

This is used after the DVD files have been ripped to the hard drive. The compression works great and the output is near perfect (can't see any degredation on non-HDTV) and it retains the digital sound tracks.

It's called DVD2One and you can get it here.

You can then use any other software to burn it to your DVD.

ULead DVD Movie Factory lets you adjust all of the settings for video capturing.
I believe Sonic MyDVD will as well.

Jim,

What software are you planning to use for the burning?

I have not used DVD2One, but out of all the choices it seems the best. The format you have right now is probably not the best as far as space, and the DVD player in your car might be very picky as to what it wants to play. Before you go and format everything, test a DVD you burned on it.

Forgot about this website:

www.dvdrhelp.com

This place has info on all sorts of stuff like software and compatibility with hardware and media. Very good resource for DVD stuff.

I personally use CopyToDVD to burn my DVDs, but I have a friend who uses Nero with no problems.

What's nice about using CopyToDVD is that you can have the burn process automatically kick off when DVD2One is finished processing.

somewhat .....quick ?

How the heck do you export back to the MiniDV recorder? I've done all my editing and have a 25GB movie. Does the camera need to be in VCR or Camera mode. I have a Sony TRV33. I, using a 90 minute tape and should have just enough to get it on one tape in LP mode.
