exporting to a dvd

Hi everyone

ive just joined this forum and im looking forward to learning all about resolve from you all

I used to use pinnacle but a friend told me about resolve so I have the free version and im loving it !!

we shoot weddings here in the UK (Milton Keynes) and I just added videography I have around 5 active projects in the computer at the moment and I exported one and tried to burn it to a DVD but its to big for the disc can anyone please point me in the direction of how to choose the best settings to achieve this as we have just had loads of printing done for DVD

thanks in advance

Resolve is not a DVD authoring software (not even a limited one, like in Final Cut Pro).

You can always export your film in a high quality codec, like ProRes or DNxHD. But you'll need to encode it to MPEG-2 and AC3 with other software and use an authoring tool for DVD.

On a Mac a basic solution would be Roxio Toast.

Mike,

If you're on Mac*, I can give you options to make a "real" chaptered DVD (with menus, chapter, transitions, blablabla), since I'm asked to make a couple of each summer; or maybe a "false" too (good format to be read well but just the right clip format without authoring).
*Don't know at all on other platforms

In any way, you need more than Resolve.

On the PC, have a look at TmpGENC Authoring Works

On the Mac, the ancient iDVD is still supported in High Sierra. It has several templates and can support lots of user control. I would think Toast is superior, but iDVD could be a budget solution that generates decent results. I recently used it.
