What exactly is Padding and what determines how much Padding is added?  I ask because I had a DVD-9 VIDEO_TS job that was just barely over a DVD-5.  Something like 4.9 GB.  However, the resulting image file created was just under 8 GB.  I was wondering why about 3 GB of padding was necessary for such a job.

Padding is just zeroed sectors.

It would depend on what you pick for where you want the layer break.

It'll have to add more padding to make it work in terms of L0 being bigger than L1.

If you pick a cell that's early on in the 5gb image (say, 1 to 2 gb), it'll have to add loads. If you pick one that's around the 4gb mark, it won't.
