Last night I wanted to back up both Wild Hogs and Disturbia. I choose the re-author option because to be honest i actually prefer to just have the movie start playing and I dont like having menu's or extra features. With just the main movie i managed to get Wild Hogs on DVD-R with room to spare, so i needed no compression. This is great because obviously the movie quality is perfect. I then went to re-author Disturbia, and even with JUST the main movie selected (and only english audio track and english subs) it was using 79.0% compression in order to fit. What makes no sense is that Wild Hogs is 1 hour 40 minutes, and Disturbia is 1 hour 44 minutes. If they are both almost identical in movie length, how come one can easily fit and the other has to be compressed? im obviously hoping to get most of my backups in perfect quality. The only thing i could think of is that Wild hogs is using the 2.35:1 widescreen, so in effect the actual size of the video is smaller, whereas Disturbia is 1.85:1 so technically the video takes up more screen. Is this the correct answer to why its doing that? To be honest im not complaining because even at 79.0% disturbia still came out looking pretty damn good. But my DVD-R says it has a recording time of 120 minutes (2 hours)... im assuming it cant use that full space because of the 350 megabyte audio track? Thats another thing, it really is something with the video because the audio track size on both films is near identical Just wanted to make sure im not doing something wrong, i want these to come out good! thanks for any help, sorry for the long post!
