    Okay, so the source file is 1gig, butwhen you add it to the program it says the final product will be 6.63 gigs?

    This seems right, IF you are going from say a .mov .avi or whatever and trying to output to standadrd DVD (can play in a regualr DVD player hooked to a TV). Because the program has to seperate the video and audio, encode them, and then put them into VideoTS and AudioTS.

    I find I can put about 2-3 40 min TV Episodes on a disk, if the .avi is of average quality. You should be able to play around with the output settings and try to get a lower quality to save space. I do not know this particualar program though.

    Hope this helps!
