i got a dvd of one of their shows, so for this one i was planning on ripping the iso and just burning it to other dvd's to make copies. this should work, right? whats a good program to rip an iso? i am using mac the ripper right now but i am pretty sure that it will only give me the video/audio folders from the dvd.
for the second dvd, i have 2 sections of 40 min, each being about 9 gigs from tapes. the footage is dv. i want to put both on one dvd (thats what they want). whats the best way to go about this? i have never made dvd's but can use final cut pretty well so i was going to drag it all into a timeline and try to export it so it fits on the 4.7 gig discs. ive never exported a movie this long: what are the settings i should be looking at for getting this amount of data to fit onto the disc?
