How to access default on Nero settings?

Using NERO video 12 platinum, I am having a problem where the file size is being increased. Even when I decrease the file size, there is virtually no change in the stated GB. It makes no sense. I've had no problems with my transfers, but this is a problem I cannot seem to crack.

  • Hi Mr. Gill-

    Are you referring to the size of a file when you burn it in Nero Video?

    If SmartEncoding is enabled, it will encode the file as required to meet the specs for the type of project you select. For example, DVD-Video, AVCHD-DVD or Blu-ray. That can result in the size of the project increasing. If you choose recording format options that are different than the defaults, it can increase the size of the file.

    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding.

    Also, have you run the check for updates from the Nero ControlCenter?

  • Mr. Glen Gill:

    I can't say what is causing the size increase for you. I'm sure there are a host of possibilities. One would be the degree of compression present in the imported files compared to the degree of compressibility in the output file. For example, I imported a short .mp4 (highly compressed) 2.77 MB file and exported it as a .mpg (DVD-Compatible MPEG-2) 12.1 MB file. I.E., the size increased by a factor of more than 4. The .mp4 was decompressed from its highly compressed state and then encoded with less compression by a different codec.

    So, in addition to the requests from others above, please describe the files you have imported, the parameters of your output, etc.

    There is a program called MediaInfo available here that provides valuable information about video files as shown below.

  • I think you mean the incorrect update of the capacity bar CB. It shows no changes when you add videos.

    Don't worry, this is an annoying bug in the SW, which is also not solved by the recent update, so updating doesn't help.

    Here what you can do. If after adding of a video the capacity of the medium is exceeded choose "Fit to disc" in the Recording Format Options (RFO). After ok you see in the CB that the full capacity of the medium is used. But this does not mean, that the medium is really full.

    Go again to the RFO and choose there "Userdefined" in the quality settings. Then the bit rate for the now current status of the medium is shown. As the bitrate for high quality is 8'000 KB/s a lower bitrate means lower quality. If it is between 7'000 and 8'000 you can add further videos until the bitrate reaches a value of about 5'800. Bitrates under this value lead to a visible loss of playback quality. Tolerating a lower quality because you prefer a longer playback time e.g., must you decide.
