    On good quality DVDs, what is the average bitrate? Also, how high does it normally get at a maximum on such discs?

    (Any information would be greatly helpful in my attempt to create a DVD of my own works.)

    I'm by no means an expert in this since I only check occasionally out of my strange curiosity. Tombstone Vista Series, which I watched last night, seemed to average around 6.5 Mb. This is generally regarded as a great transfer, but including edge enhancement. The highest rate I've seen was on Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, which hovered in the 9.5 range during most of the film. The transfer of this film, while marred by film based artifacts, is considered a pretty nice transfer too.
    Hope this info helps. [​IMG]

    Fifth Element superbit seemed to hover around 7.5 whenever I checked it. Sometimes it went higher, but was never sustained.

    Martin.
