No, they're not. If there's still space to spare when all the videos
are included, I might try doing that. Note however that these are real
video DVDs; slides would thus be quite separate from the video content.

I don't have a dual-layer burner so I've been burning a pair of
single-layer DVDs. These have about 800 megabytes more space altogether
than a dual-layer DVD, so I'm not *that* concerned about breaching the
dual-layer limit. If you have the (processor) time you could try
reducing the bit rates a bit further and seeing whether the results are
still acceptable. Using two-pass encoding might help, but I haven't
tried enabling that yet as it takes about 8 hours to recode already.
