I am trying to burn a DVD in Premiere Elements 14 at full resolution/ file size and cannot do so. I am using an HP Envy Windows Laptap with 16G Ram. Most of the images are still photos from a high res camera with just a handful of video clips.

I have created an MP4 file in Elements 14 that is about 26 minutes long and is 4.4G in file size. When burning a DVD, it resizes the 4.4G file size to 1.66G, even though I am within the length/ file size tolerance to fit on a blank DVD. There are no menu selections that I can find that will let me burn the DVD at full res/ file size. Any suggestions or fixes?

If you are burning the mp4 to a video dvd it will get re-encoded.

Hence the smaller size.

File size depends on bitrate x duration.

DVD will never exceed 10 Mbps (max is more around 9 Mbps)

To fill a entire dvd you need about 90-120 minutes of video depending on the compression.

In other words 30 minutes of video will never fill the entire dvd.

Ken,

Assuming you have a Blu-Ray player, consider the choice for creating an "AVCHD Disk".   It creates a HD "Blu-Ray" specification, uses plain single or double sided DVD disks and uses an ordinary DVD burner.   The result is significantly superior to DVDs.
