    I am trying to convert a football game from VHS to DVD. I have captured the game to my computer using my ALL In Wonder 8500DV card. It is 13.1GB in size. I have created two premiere projects. One for each half, and have cut out the commericials in the first half.

    How do I export and compress the video so I can burn it to DVD? When I tried to export the first half it took 24 hours to do and the size of the first half without commericals was over 20 GB. What happened? How is this one half minus commercials now greater than the entire game originally captured. I haven't added any transition or effects.

    How will I ever get this whole game under 4.7 GB to burn on one DVD?

    Please help. I'm so lost right now and itching to use my new burner.

    Thanks all.

    when you exported the video what format did you have it converted to? i think you need to export it as a MP-2 - that should compress it enough to get all the game on one cd. the 20gb is just the right size for one hour of uncompressed video. good luck

    I believe it was Microsoft AVI. The resolution was 640x480.

    This has me confused. I captured the video as MPEG-2 at a 740x480 resolution. I would like to keep it that way, but I don't see the option in Premiere. Is there a way to add this or change to this export setting?
