  • DVD head room

    Could some one give me an idea how much head room I should allow for simple menus etc when I convert a file for DVD authoring to a single layer disc?

    I usually leave about 70MB of free space just to be safe.

      Depends on the size of your navigation but 5% of disc space for both DVD5 & DVD9 is a good place to start - for me anyway!
