Just got my first DVD writer and have been perusing the user guides to figure out how to put my divx-encoded home movies on DVD. I started encoding to MPEG2 yesterday using WinMPG, and my 400MB avi file (a half-hour fairly high-quality video) became a 3GB mpg file. Is this normal? Would there be any advantage to using TMPGEnc instead? Assuming all goes well and I successfully convert, say, an hour’s worth of my avi files to mpeg2 and then create the vob files, can I then use something like DVDShrink to fit them on one DVD?
