Maybe you can share how you did it your only way ?
Usually, the video is captured from your camcorder to AVI format(very large and relatively uncompressed), and video editing changes it to DVD "standard", i.e. mpeg2,(more manageable size - DVD quality) from which a DVD is "authored". Unless you have edited the video footage to mpeg4 (HD-blueray standard), one DVD(4.7G) is all that is required, or one DL DVD (8.8G). Of course, if you need HD ....or you created the DVDs straight from the AVI format, you need more space, but then this is not the "DVD" you want.... What I am trying to say is that if you want to create DVD, use mpeg2 standard source files, if HD, use mpeg4...
For your quantity of copies required, have you think about a "pressing" service ? (i.e produce "commercial" DVDs rather than burning them yourself.)
