    I've heard that a DVD can play more than 2 hrs. My primary rendering
    software is Pinnacle Studio 8, is there a way to do it with this s/w?

    Compression. DVD is digital, it isn't analog. It has a file size
    restriction, not a tape length restriction. Just make sure your movie
    is under 4.7GB in MPEG compression, or use a dual layer disc.

    Make Movie/settings/most video on disk(or Custom).

    As the other replies have said, compression will squeeze more video onto a
    DVD. But the more you squeeze on, the less the quality.

    Yes and Studio 8 also informs you of what percent under 100% the settings
    will produce. Experimenting will show just how much under is acceptable for
    the individual needs of the viewer.
