Applications :: Using IDVD File Sizes?

Apr 14, 2009

Whenever I try to write an .avi (or .mov) movie with iDVd onto DVD, it says: 'content reach maximum duration, pls remove some content' for movies over 700MB. That's without adding chapter markers etc...

I've tried using MPeg Streamclip and Prism to convert them to smaller sizes, but without any luck, they just come out bigger.

Applications :: ITunes Video File Sizes?

Nov 5, 2009

I tried a quick MRoogle on this one, no luck for what I was looking for. I'm trying to figure out why iTunes video sizes are so ginormous...

I recently got addicted to the show Chuck, so I bought the 2nd season on iTunes...

Now, I've downloaded tv shows from other... ummm.. sources before, and it typically is about 375MB for an hour long show (45 mins really..)

But iTunes, I'm running into standard def video in the 600mb for the same length of time.

Is this due to iTunes encoding or something? I mean, granted the store seems to pipe out the downloads pretty quickly, but its still a pain to wait for a longer download than if I'd obtained these through questionable methods.

Applications :: Why Does A 2GB Video File Not Fit On An IDVD Project

Sep 26, 2010

I have a 2GB m4v file that I wanted to use iDVD to create a movie for. But even taking it off of Best Performance and instead using High Quality, the movie is too large to be burned. It's showing it as a 4.81 GB project.

I'll admit my ignorance here...what gives? How does a 2GB file grow that large when being encoded as a DVD?

Applications :: IMovie To IDVD - Different File Size?.

Dec 11, 2009

When exporting my videos the file sizes are coming up at around 100mb. I've around 50 videos to fit on 1 DVD.

Does anyone know how to reduce the file size? Is there a free converter? I've tried going from Large to Medium but it's not as great as I'd hoped.

OS X :: How To Get File Sizes

Jul 5, 2010

If I drag the mouse over a bunch of files in Finder (to select them) and then click get "File...Get Info", I get a bunch of info windows pop up all over my screen, one window for each file!

What I normally want to do is, like in Windows, see the totals for all selected files selected in ONE window, but I don't see how to do this.

Software :: Changes In File Sizes?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm running 10.4 with Photoshop 8. When I open a jpeg that comes from my camera which is usually between 2.5 - 3.0 MB and then 'save as' without doing anything to it, it is reduced to about 750Kb. I am saving as Jpeg and using the maximum quality (12).

What's happening?

OS X :: Reduce File Sizes For .doc - .pdf - .txt?

Aug 8, 2007

I already know about reducing file size through print pdf, but from my experience this has not done too much to actually reduce the size. I was wondering if there is any other way to do this that is similarly easy and free? More importantly, how about the ability to reduce a word document or text edit without converting the file into a pdf? I have massive word files and would really like to reduce the size they take up, but really do not want to lose the ability work in the document

Mac Pro :: SSD - Is There Way Around The Low Performance For Small File Sizes

Oct 26, 2010

Just got an SSD recently and it's extremely fast for big files (reads in the 240mB/sec range and an obvious improvement running the machine).But I also do work that uses a huge number of very small files, and I was surprised to find that the read performance is so much lower in that case. The 4k benchmark was actually slower than my old hard drive (about 40mB/sec), and loading up a project is also a little slower off of SSD versus HD. The files I'm loading are typically in the 60k range which should be better performance than 4k (and I would think better than HD, but that's not what I'm seeing on my machine). Looking at some SSD benchmarks online (on PC), 64k is still down from the max speed but not much, about 180.

Software :: How To See File Sizes And Locations?

Nov 26, 2009

Specific example of a very common general scenario: I'm searching for an instruction manual on my computer.
I have a lot of product brochures and one manual from the same company, all with similar names. No idea which is the manual, but I do know that when I run a Spotlight search, the manual will be the one with the large file size.

Except for some inexplicable reason, Spotlight won't show you the file sizes of all the results! This is absolutely bizarre OS behavior. I have to Get Info of each one, which is laborious. And it's hard to compare them, as you have to match each Info window with each file name back in the Spotlight results.

This process is next to impossible when trying to compare a very large number of documents or video clips, etc.

Similar usability issue when you need to easily and quickly compare where a bunch of files you've searched for are all located. Can't do it on a Mac. (This is sadly one of those areas where Windows has long been easier and simpler than Mac.)

I understand the $39 "Path Finder" application can add these functions, but it introduces other limitations that matter to me. So, is there ANY way to sort by size and location in OSX (10.6.2)?

Software :: How To Display Real File Sizes

Feb 27, 2010

I work a lot with video, DVD's, etc. This work relies heavily upon the long-time, established standard when it comes to file sizes; that is, that noble of all numbers, 1024.

Sadly, it appears that some computer makers, hard drive manufacturers, and even some ISP's, no longer have respect for the decades-old standard of 1024, upon which the computer industry was built. Thus, to earn a higher profit, and to pretend to offer more than they really are, they have chosen to use 1000, instead of 1024, as their unit of measurement. It makes Internet speeds appear faster than they really are; it makes hard drives seem bigger than they really are; etc. To me, it is plain old greed and deception.

For someone involved with video, where accurate measurements are required, this modern usage of 1000 presents a problem.

Thus, I am looking for a program which will allow me to display REAL file sizes in the Finder -- which relies upon 1024k/Kb, 1024Kb/Mb, 1024Mb/Gb, etc. -- rather than the more modern approach of 1000 units/whatever.

I was hoping that a program like MacPilot, or a similar app, might possess this tweaking feature, but I have been unable to find one to date.

The only thing that I can do for now is to use a program like MediaInfo, which is a halfway point, because I actually want ALL of my files on my hard drives to display the file size based upon 1024, and NOT upon 1000.

Applications :: Alternative To IDVD Or Different IDVD Themes?

Dec 26, 2010

I couldn't find what I was looking for in MRoogle.

The thing I hate about iDVD (besides it taking so long to burn video DVDs on Mac) is that the themes are more than I need and take up valuable disc space.

1. Are there any iDVD themes that are simply a music, no video clip previews, no sappy backgrounds, etc?

2. Is there a free (or cheap) alternative to iDVD excluding Toast?

3. I'd be using .mov or .mp4 as my source video.

4. I have iDVD 7.0.4 and am using Snow Leopard. I really don't want to pay for iLife 11 as I never use Garage Band or iPhoto. iMovie kinda sucks too.

OS X :: Using IDVD And Dmg File?

Jul 16, 2009

I read where it is good to save an iDVD project as a .dmg file so that burning it again later will be faster. I have done that with a project. Now I want to burn more copies, and just wanted to ask how to do this. Do I open iDVD and burn it from there? Or can I use Toast? If so, what setting? Or can I just drag the .dmg file onto a mounted DVD? I will want it to play on a standard DVD player, and for PC users to have access to the photo files that are included. It works fine that way when I have just used iDVD to burn it.

Applications :: Combining PDFs - Pages Come Out All Different Sizes?

Jan 11, 2010

I've got some PDFs I'm trying to compile into one single PDF file. I'm using an automator script which is working well, except for the fact that the resultant PDF's page sizes are all over the place � some are huge whereas others are pretty tiny...

Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a way to combine PDFs and not have the pages sizes turn out weird? The PDFs are from different sources (some have been scanned at various resolutions, some are word documents that were printed to PDF from within OS X) so that could be the reason, but I'm just looking for a solution atm.

Applications :: Burn DVD's From IMovie Without IDVD?

Jun 21, 2005

I have iMovie 2.1.2 on a Mac G4 with a superdrive burner. I've captured video from my mini-dv camcorder and now I want to put it on DVD to be played on any DVD player.

I've tried a few of the "expert" settings to export it, but none do the trick as far as producing playable DVD's. I have toast titanium 5 and I don't have Quicktime Pro. I also do not have iDVD.

I have Final Cut Pro on this computer, but have no idea how to use it.

Is there a simple way to to export directly from iMovie onto a playable DVD, or do I need something else?

Applications :: Using IDVD - Putting Movie On Dvd?

Mar 3, 2009

I created a movie using IDVD, only I apparently don't have the kind of drive needed to burn dvds, so my questions (which is probably a stupid one) is how do I put it onto a dvd? I know there are external burners, but I rather not buy one. Are there any types of services that do that? I know there are ones for tapes to dvds, but this is already on my computer.. Can I save it and do it through a pc? Would I have to convert the file?

Applications :: Shrinking An Avi Video For IDVD?

Apr 17, 2009

so i have some bike racing videos that im trying to burn using iDVD but the files are a little to large for single layer. the files are varying in size from 1.1-1.6 gig in AVI video format. when i just drag one of the files into a project its says its to large and when opening up project manger its been expanded to 6+ gigs and wont fit. so what can i do besides burning to dual layer dvd's, what program do i need or perhaps already have that can compress the video enough so that once dropped into iDVD it will fit on a single layer dvd. also am i going to be dropping the quality of the video so low that its not going to look good?
