Newbie question re Compressor: best settings to fill a DVD
Sorry for a naive question but I'd like to use Compressor to create a self-contained video file of the highest quality to fit on a single layer/4.7 gig DVD. I do not want to create a playable DVD. Instead, I want to create an m4v or QT movie.
If I use the preset settings at 10 Mbps, it's too big for a single layer DVD.
If I use the preset settings at 5 Mbps, it's about 2.9 gigs; there's more room on the DVD and I assume that kicking it up a bit to create a larger file may create a video that looks better... but maybe that's a false assumption? Perhaps the difference will be unnoticeable?
So I'm turning to you guys who may have had experience with this situation. In Compressor, if I select a new setting, it does NOT give an estimated file size. So I could wait for 2 - 3 hours only to find that it was a waste of time because the file size is too big for a single layer DVD.
Is there a generally accepted custom setting for people who want to create the best quality video file and burn it to a DVD?
This video is going to be given to parents and they are NOT all Apple users. Some have PCs, some have iPads, some don't. So rather than create 5 different versions for different users, I want to create a single video file that should be viewable by both PC and Mac users.
Sorry to ramble on but if you have any suggestions, would you tell me what you'd recommend?
