I finally finished editing some Sat-Receiver-Records to one file. (it realy brought Shotcut to its limits combining 3 .ts-files with a length of 3:30h each
The Source-Files have following propperties:
720x576, framrate 25, audio: stereo, AC3. Length of the video will/shall be 6h18min54sec
(it’s the Apollo11-special broadcast from ARD, sent on BRalpha and (sadly, now I got two logos in the upper left corner) ARDalpha to collect all the parts of the broadcast)
Trying the different formats and outputs, I have files from 85GB to 9GB.
80GB are loss-less. Image and sound are the same as the source-files, but these have a sice of combined 16GB (and much of each others broadcast, too). But defenetly to big for anything. (dv, it changes the resoultion to 736x576, screen-resolution 720x576, audio: pcm S16LE, 48000hz).
Also, a .vob-File (Mpeg 1/2, 720x576, AC3-Audio 48000hz) with 13GB
Then i changed to mpeg4; one attempt with 80%compression leaves me with 13,4GB, and one with 60%, leading to a 5,9GB-file.
Sadly, the compressed files loose so much of image- and audio-quality. And the source itself isn’t so good - they are just repeating the old broadcasts, without image-advancements. So loosing quality realy hurts…
I’d like to burn it on discs; ideal as DVD-Video, or as Data-DVD with a video-file to play.
I recently bought a BluRay-Burner; so i’d have space available… (Though I don’t have an authoring-program for Linux yet)
As I want the video with reasonable image and sound-quality - could somebody pls. tell me the correct profile/settings/… to export these file within reasonable file-size and no (or only few) loss of image and sound? (either DVD-DL or BD 25GB (target-medium: m-discs)
Many thanks for your help
