This is the first time I've tried to burn to anything after a project has been made in the Adobe Premiere Elements 2020 version. In the past when I used Adobe Elements 8 the "Burn to Folder 4.7gb" with "Fit Contents to available space" checked on enabled me to burn a media timeline duration of about 3 to 4 hours. Now, I'm lucky if I can "Burn to ISO 4.7gb" with "Fit Contents to available space" check on with a media timeline duration of 2 hours and 35 minutes.
Here are my questions:
The system that I am running my Adobe Premiere Elements 2020 is on Windows 10. Please tell me how to do what I once did in Windows 8. I have enough harddrive space to do the job (2tb), and have adjusted the "Scratch Disc" settings to save everything there. It's just a matter of fiddling with the burn settings or something...I'm not familiar how to go about this. Thank you.
A 4.7 gig DVD holds about 80-100 minutes of video at full resolution video. I don't know how you're fitting 3-4 hours of video on a disk.
That is what I'm trying to figure out, Steve. In the older version that I used, Elements 8, as explained in my original post, Elements compressed this to 4.7gb. I did lose some quality but I was still able to burn to folder at the capacity that I wanted.
In this new 2020 Premiere Elements I am forced to delete media from my tinekine, regardless of its "fit" description, as I mentioned in my original post. I don't know why this is and I do not want to burn it at a larger capacity (for dual layer DVD) ascI only have single 4.7gb single layer DVD discs. I am not compelled to buy larger DVD discs when I was able to do the same thing that I am trying to achieve now in an older version.
In other words, is there a setting over and above the fit contents that Elements has built in in order for me to lose a bit of quality in order to put more on my disc? I did not know how this was done in my older version except that the fit contents worked like a charm.
Set iso to 8.5 gb. Might work.
Yes it would but I don't have DVD discs of that size and am not compelled to buy them. Please read my response to Steve.
Split project into two; spread over 2 disks.
But that's not what I want or did in a previous version.
2.5 hours is max.
