I've used UVS for 3 years now and am quite happy with the results it has given. One thing I cannot understand, however, is the correlation between "quality" and "bit rate," which is customizable in the "Make Movie Manager."
I decided to play around and experiment with it. I took a captured DV movie and edited out the commercials, leaving me with a 1-hour 35-minute movie to transcode into MPEG for DVD. For kicks, I set the "quality" setting at 100, and the (variable) bit rate at 5500. The resulting MPG movie is 4.5 GB, in other words, a bit too much for one disc.
So, I'm wondering, what do I crank down? The quality setting? The bit rate? Before I had the quality at 80 and the bit rate at 4000, which left lots of room over for a movie of that length. I tried to find the answers to this on Ulead's site, but (as usual) they never cover things to the technical level I'm interested in.
If anyone could clarify this correlation or point me to any online resources, I'd be much obliged.
