Trying to make a standard DVD movie from an AVI file, I used TMPGenc to encode. However, as I've read is often the case, the TMPGenc audio engine had troubles with the MP3 audio of my source file....therefore the MPG2 output file (while having amazing video) had no sound whatsoever. The most commonly suggested solution to this problem is to use freeware program virtualdub, or ffmpeggui, to extract a WAV audio from the source AVI, then use TMPGenc to create my video file only. Then, combine the two using whatever authoring software (Ulead DVD Moviefactory 2.0 in this case). My problem with this technique is that the Ulead software doesn't seem to care if I use all the available space to write the 4.7 gigs available or not.....whereas before, when the audio and video were combined during the encode, I was assured of using all the space...and having the best possible quality (because TMPGenc is smarter software, kinda). I would NOW have to manually figure out how large TMPGenc should make my video file, so that during authoring when I added my audio it would add up to about 4.7 gigs...and not be over. (perhaps this IS the best way, but I'm a newbie at this...and not even sure all 4.7 gigs are available. Also, I may use this process often, and figured a "pro" would surely do it some other way.) Also, I read several instances where this resulted in audio/video synchronization problems.

hope someone understands this! Is my authoring software no good? Should I try TMPGenc authoring software as well? or something else? or some other technique?

thanks much for any help, Jaybird

Download HeadAC3HE from here to encode your audio.

Scroll down a bit further and you will see that there are several bitrate calculators this will enable you to work out a file size.
