I am pretty new to Compressor.

I have a regular  SD DVD (4.7gb) project that I am trying to burn in DVD Studio Pro.

First I need to use Compressor to produce a m2v file that DVDSP can use.


My DVD consists of about 5 still menus (with transitions between those menus), and about 5 small featureettes which are about 5 mins each.


My main movie, is 1hr 58 mins and has one audio track.    There are 2 subtitle tracks.


How can I calculate the best quality settings in Compressor based on the above info?  


(I am using Compressor 2)

    I think this page from the DVD STudio Pro manual is a good description of factors that need to be taken into account in your space estimates.


    As far as Compressor is concerned, recent versions provide information on what will fit on a disk as you adjust the bit rate slider, but I don't know about Compressorr2.


    Good luck.
