I have some AVI's that are an average of about 700MB and about 2 hours long. How can I get these AVI's to burn on DVD without getting the error of file being to large? I have just about everything, Popcorn, Toast 6, iDVD, DVD Studio Pro, DivX Dr., ffmpegx, Fourt-Two, Handbrake, Mac the Ripper. Any suggestions? The ideal thing would be to convert AVI files to VOB so I can use Popcorn to burn to DVD. Is this possible? :mac:

There's a program called 'compresser' that comes with DVD Studio Pro (at least it comes with the pro suite, so I assume it comes with DVD SP, unless it comes with final cut pro...). I think it's able to convert your AVIs to the right format, then you can also use it to compress them so they fit on a DVD.

As far as burning goes, DVD SP has that functionality built in so there's no need to use popcorn.

Actually thinking about it a bit more, it makes more sense for Apple to include compressor with FCP rather than DVD SP... So I'm not certain what you can do if you don't have compressor.

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

I do have compressor but it didn't work. I can't even open up the MP4 file it created. I heard ffmpegx can create video_ts folders with the necessary VOB files. I am trying different conversion with ffmpegx and keeping my finders crossed. I just want to take some AVI files I have that seem to be too big for standard 4.7 DVD-R's and convert to VOB files so I can use Popcorn to burn.

use divx doctor to convert to .mov, then use ffmpegx to convert/author that into video_ts and audio_ts.

Divx Dr works well. I am expermenting with different setting using ffmpegx to convert to video_ts. I used DVD (ffmpeg) with the MPEG2 (ffmpeg) video codec and it did create the video_ts & audio_ts folders...but when I play it back using either Apple DVD or VLC the video becomes very choppy and pixelated, sound too. Any suggestions on settings to use?

mpeg 2 or 4, under tools tab, select author as video_ts and audio_ts folders. then put those in another folder you name after the movie title.
