I have, apparently, PowerProducer 126.96.36.1990.
I have been playing around with PowerProducer and I've gotta say that it burns VOBs to disc a lot faster than Studio ever did. Here's my question, however:
When I used Studio, the maximum video time I could burn to a DVD was 1 hour 17 minutes and 10 seconds, at least in one of their settings -- the only other setting only permitted about 1 hour. So when I was editing my videos, I would make sure that I would have about 1:17:08 of stuff to burn, to fill the disc to its capacity.
With PowerProducer, however, I am unable to find any definitions to tell me precisely how many minutes I can incorporate.
When I go to PowerProducer\Preferences\Video/Audio I find a box called "Video Quality", and, below, that, five other boxes with initials beneath them: HQ, SP, LP, EP, and Smart Fit.
By experimenting with five MPG files that I *know* will run for 1 hr. 17 min. and 7 sec. on Studio, using up just about *all* of the 4.7 gigs of space on the blank DVD, I have found the following:
For HQ, it would take me 5808 megs to burn them
For SP, it would take 3038
For LP, it would take 2045
For EP, it would take 1578
And for Smart Fit, it would take 4350 of the 4700 available.
Okay: for Smart Fit, how many minutes of video can I get into the 4700?
And why doesn't this program give us this information somewhere?
