For Constant video quality mode, you can select Highest, Higher, Medium, Lower and Lowest. If you select Highest quality, the output size will be then largest one. If you select Lowest quality, the output size will be the smallest one. Constant video quality mode also allows you to split the size of the output file. Of course, you do have to split the file unless you want to.

 

From the Constant video size mode, you have to figure out the range of the maximum size and minimum size of the disk. From this, you can calculate how many discs will be needed. You will need at least 1 disc, but there are no limitations of the maximum number of discs.

 

NOTE: If you are using the Constant video quality mode, all of the VOB files will be converted to one disc so it will only produce one directory and one IFO file. If you are using Constant video size mode, it will create all the IFO files and directories needed for the number of discs you will make.
