Hi, I have a problem I was hoping someone here might know how to resolve. I recently made a 1 hour film that I shot at 1080p, resulting in a final file size of around 7 GB. A relative of mine really wants to see the movie, but he is old and does not own a Blu Ray player, so I want to burn him a DVD copy. Problem is, the blank DVDs I have only hold 4.38 GB. Not only that, but the max resolution of a DVD is 720x480, as far as I know.
I'm not even sure how to phrase my question, because I have a very limited understanding of all of this, but basically, if I change the resolution to 720x480, won't I part of the picture be cropped out? Is there a way to lower the resolution without losing part of the pcture?
Or, basically, how can I fit this onto a DVD while losing as little as possible?
I have Adobe Premiere currently, so if there's something I can do with that, please let me know. Maybe I need some other software to compress the file or something...I dunno. Thanks!
