Having issues with Toast.....
I have about 8 42 or 43 minitutes Xvid (extent ion is .avi) movies in Toast, but the window shows 957MB used with 7.01GB remaining, yet after encoding, i get a warning saying I do not have enough space on the duel layer disc i inserted.
Space required is 10Gig
Can someone clear this up ? I can't make sense of this... How can 5 hours equal under 100MB ? I though Toast meter showed you what the finished burn would be based on the disc.
The sizes of these 8 files in finger equal to over 1 Gig...
ANy solution to this ?

You original .avi files are quite small for their lengths, but that is due to their abysmal small resolutions (around 400 x 300 pixel).
As you create a video DVD with almost six hours of content, even a DL-DVD does not have enough storage capacity for this, as a video DVD uses an older, less space efficient, MPEG-2 codec and a set resolution (720 x 576 for PAL and 720 x 480 for NTSC), thus it needs more storage space than the already highly compressed .avi files, which use XVID as codec, which is an MPEG-4 variant and more space efficient than MPEG-2, and those .avi files are only using a third of the resolution they have to be for being on a video DVD.
I do not know, why Toast gives you those numbers at the bottom though, probably due to Toast not being programmed in a way to show you the final size, only programmed to show you the current file sizes.
Is that understandable?
