Lets say I have a timeline, 1hr 58mins long.  I need to compress this onto a standard DVD, 4.7Gb.


Knowing I need a file size of 3.9Gb  (I am leaving space for my menus etc),   how do I choose the approximate bitrate settings in Compressor to give me the filesize of 4.2Gb?



(I have Compressor 2 and am wanting VBR 2 Pass Best)
