I am using Sony Vegas 8 Movie Studio/DVD Architect Studio to make a DVD. Before I am able to make a DVD in DVD Architect, I discovered that my disk space is too big to burn it on a 4 GB DVD. Is there a way to change the options in order for the video file to fit on the DVD? Or how do I allow all the material I took from one DVD to be able to fit on one DVD?
Thanks for your help.

see if it has a 'fit to disk' option like it's big brotherAuthor, Producer, Composer, Director - Sony AVCHD & HDV, Konica SLR, LG BD burner

I tried the "Fit to Disk" option but the message I received was "Media file is too big and could not fit into single DVD disc. Consider making more media assets available for recompress or removing some media assets."
I'm not sure what this means.

Or, it could mean what it says if you are loading highly compressed source files.Recommends: Kiva.org - Loans that change lives.
I'm attempting the "Vegas 8.0" consumer version as well, and encountered a "project too large for the selected media" error when attempting the BURN step. Perhaps it's just me... but this error doesn't make sense.
The "Vegas Studio" project rendered an AVI of 3.3Gb large (15 mins of Handycam video/audio at 740x480, bitrate defaulted to 1536kbps.) It plays just fine in my PC's AVI viewer.
"Architect" took that and "prepared" (default settings) a DVD image folder (VOBs, etc) of 922Mb for a single movie project.
I was under the impression the VOBs and stuff were a "direct copy" to/from the DVD, yet "Architect" complained as above for a single-layer DVD blank.
What don't I understand here?
 This is a new XP installation, only days old. Did I forget to download something that runs in the background to make this work?Matt
