DVD size increase when using Kino

Asked by NakiMum on 2010-07-17

I'm using Kino to edit some home movies. The process is as follows:
Acidrip to get movie onto my laptop; using mpeg-format (.avi option is there, but I prefer mpeg)
Edit the format in kino from .xxx (whatever) to .dv
Edit movie with Kino and export with following settings: DV Avi type 1.

After ripping the disc to my laptop the size is 689.4 Mb
After converting it to a .dv-format for Kino the size is 31.2 Gb

I just want to know why it's doing that as I'm editing the movies to be shorter than when I first started.
I use DeVeDe to burn to disc before putting in cases in our family collection.

Please keep the explanation to the basics as I tend to be suffer from blocked brain syndrome ;-)

Because Kino works exclusively with DV format which is 25Mbit/s data rate, unlike DVD from 3.5 to about 8.5 Mbit/s.

Hi Pako
thanks for that. I just thought I might be doing something, because I just do the basic settings. My motto is if I don't understand the settings, I go with default :-)

Anyways, thank you for explaining it.
Now I've got another 12 vids to go before I can put them all together in DeVeDe & burn to send to the family LOL.
