I created a 1 hour 38 minute (roughly) project in FCP Pro and created a DVD SP project out of the project.  According to DVD SP, the project is 8.6 gigs.  The burned failed.  The report is as follows:

Formatting was not successful.  Layer 0 exceeds the maximum layer size allowed.  Please choose a suitable marker location that will support this condition.

 

Can anyone tell me what went wrong and how do I correct it?

    It's too big.

     

    Two options:

     

    1) Take the original file into Compressor an reduce the bit rate.

     

    2) Break it up into a multiple disks.

     

    Good luck.

    That's what I suspected.  But what threw me off was the part that says that I should choose a suitable marker loction that will support this condition.  What does that mean and how do I do that?

  • Russ H Level 7 (20,240 points)

    This is likely to require some experimentation. Take a moment to review this section on dual layer disks to see what options you have in setting break points and the pros and cons of those options.

     

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your help.  Will take your suggestions and do a little experimenting on the break points.  I'm thinking that i'll probably have to compress it or split it among several DVDs since the project is 8.7.  I'm assuming that it won't fit since the capacity of the DL DVD is 8.5.  Anyway, I'll post back later and let you know what happens.

    Just wanted to let you know that somehow and don't ask me how, two Quicktime movies were deposited into the DVD SP project.  The size of the project was doubled.  I took everything in to the Apple store and talked to a creative, who fixed the project but deleting the unwanted project and reconnecting everything.  I was able to burn a DL DVD with no problem.

    By the way, thank you for the tips.  I really appreciate it.
