Windows 7: Nero 2014

Nero 2014

Hey there!
When using Nero 2014, i was burning some Videos to some DVD discs, lets say the file was around 1.4gb, i opted for the quality to be of the highest standard when being transfered to the disc, in this case the disc limit was 4.8gb, when the quality was at the highest it used pretty much all the space, what i was wondering was, if i chose for a smaller file size, would the quality of the DVD be rubbish?

It depend on the quality of the source. Theres a certain point where increasing quality doesn't really make any difference.
But lowering quality to much certainly will.

If you are converting to DVD format, why would you be concerned with space? 1 Movie per single layer disc is fine, no matter how much space it uses.

If on the other hand, you are making something with multiple titles I can see wanting to fit more on there.
In that case, 1hr45minutes or so is a good target per DVD to still have good quality. Once you start trying to squueze more than 2hrs on a single disc quality starts rapidly going downhill.

Again, this all depends on the quality of the source though. The better the source quality, the more compression you can get away with.

Its just the time it takes (1 1/2 hours) to burn to disc at best quality, id hope for Good solid quality but also be able to fit maybe two or three movies on at a time

Sadly, when it come to video encoding and it quality, theres only 1 solution to make it faster.

More Power. You'll need a more powerful CPU.

With what you have have, Its really going to come down whats more important to you. Video Quality vs Time.

And whats acceptable quality to one person may be completely unacceptable to the next.
The best thing you can do is some trial and error and find a good balance between encoding and the result that are acceptable to you.

While lowering the quality will certainly make encode time faster, you may find it looks horrid, or you may find you cant really tell the difference, thus making the higher encode time unnecessary.

Some trail and error experiments may be needed to find what you are looking for since theres really no "one size fits all" solution here.
Personal preference and hardware capability will play a huge role to each person.
