Entire movie may not fit on tape if recording in SP mode
The entire movie may not fit on the tape if you are recording in SP mode. This message occurs if the video or audio on the storyboard/timeline is longer in duration, such as greater than 90 minutes.
When recording your movie to DV tape, there are basic recording modes that determine the amount of video you can record to a DV tape. The two basic recording modes are SP and LP. When recording in SP mode, the tape speed is faster when compared to recording in LP mode. Though the quality of the recorded video is increased, the amount of video and audio that can be recorded to the tape is decreased.
To fix the problem, do one or more of the following:
- Reduce the length of your movie by removing items from the storyboard/timeline in Windows Movie Maker.
- On the DV camera, set the record mode to LP. For more information about switching the recording mode on your DV camera to LP, see the documentation associated with your DV camera.
