Converting .mov files to mpeg

  geedad 22:15 24 Dec 2004

My camera clips are .mov files. When converting from .mov to mpeg on my PC, there seems to be something like a five times increase in the size of the files. Is this what anyone else has experienced. I keep getting caught out on this one when trying to finally create DVDs.
Hope someone out there can help!
Many thanks!

Which software are using not only to convert but to write to DVD.

Nero 6 will compile a DVD from your .mov files into DVD format format for you and allows a lot of editing function.

Carl @ UD.
I am using "Adobe Premier LE" to convert .mov to mpeg, then "Click to DVD" for final conversion to DVD - no problems, I am just surprised by the difference in the files sizes.As an example, I start off with say, 1.2Gb in .mov files, then when converted to mpeg, they seem to be 5 times the size!
Is Nero 6 a freebie? It may be worth trying for expediency.
Thank you for your speedy response.

No Nero is not a freebie bit is the most commonly used burning software.

Have you any other burning software ?
