If you prefer doing video editing on a laptop it is very useful to have a second larger video monitor for your project preview. This way you also have the advantage of enlarging the project workspace on your laptop.
Make sure your second monitor is attached. In Nero Video click on the dual monitor button underneath the preview screen. Now your preview is shown on the second monitor simulateneaously.
For adjusting the preview quality click on the respective button in the left hand side of navigation bar underneath the preview screen and make use of the quality slider. Select ‘Best Quality’ most right for Full HD preview.
If your system lacks perfomance you can also set the slider more to the left hand side and reduce resolution in favor of having more real time performance.
Finally you can adapt the layout of your main screen to gain more space for your project work.
Your layout will be auto saved with your project and loaded automatically next time you start Nero Video.

This depends on one hand on the type of disc on the other on the video quality (compression rate) you prefer.With standard quality (5073 kbit/s) you can have 2 hours of video onto a DVD-5 (4.38GB).With high quality (8000 kbit/s) you will be able to burn about 1 hour to the same disc.
Quality settings are available in ‘Options > Recording format options’
The Tab ‘General’ lets you select your regional TV standard under ‘Video mode’ to PAL (Europe, etc.) or NTSC (North America, etc.). Per default it is set to be in sync with the language of your operating system. Also ‘SmartEncoding’ is set to ‘automatic’ by default, and we recommend to keep this. So, in a normal case, there is nothing to be set within the tab ‘General’.
TIP: Check Nero KnowHow Glossary if you want to learn more about PAL/NTSC or SmartEncoding.
In the tab ‘DVD-Video’ under ‘Recording format options’ you have ‘Quality settings’ available to select from.
You can also have ‘Nero Video’ compress your quality automatically so that your content fits on one disc. Lots of content on one disc can lead to a high compression resulting in a lower viewing quality, though.In such a case we recommend using a ‘DVD-9 Disc’ (double layer disc with 8.5 GB). This will roughly double the space on your disc and increase recording time based on above mentioned quality levels.For ease of use ‘Nero Video’ has disc format switch that allows hot format switching from within a project’s content screen and within the final burning screen.
