    Thank you for clarifying the workflow. So you are building a Blu-ray disc, using all SD footage, correct? And when you capture the 8mm movies, how are they being captured, to what format? Just trying to formulate an image of the workflow. The more info we have, the easier it will be to figure out the issue.

     

    Thanks

    They were brought over to DVD via connecting the old 8mm camcorder to a vhs/dvd dual deck recorder.  That gave me a good physical copy of the tapes on a DVD.  Then imported the files (VOB) into PC and played around with it in PP.  I settled on H264 - NTSC DV Widescreen as the output format.  Those files are what are being imported into Encore and are taking up triple the size of their size.

    Thank you. Now we are getting somewhere ;-)

     

    So the DVD recorder deck probably recorded at 8mbps (1 hour mode). That would fill the DVD. Then you converted to H.264, which is a more efficient codec than MPEG-2, so the resulting .mp4 files were smaller, then in Encore they are being transcoded back to MPEG-2 (required to meet the spec) and are thus larger again, closer to original size. Maybe they started at 8mbps, went to 2mbps as .mp4, then back to 6mbps as MPEG-2 in Encore. That makes sense. Extra encoding steps will only serve to reduce final quality.

     

    Why the encoding to H.264? DVD requires MPEG-2 DVD format, which you can export from Premiere. Just encode that way, and when you bring those files into Encore they will not need to transcode, therefore should not change size.

     

    In fact, if memory serves from work I did several years ago...if you use the free MPEG StreamClip software on a PC, I believe that may be able to take the .vob and rip that to .m2v and .wav (or .ac3) and then you'll put those assets into Encore with NO transcoding at all, keeping originally captured quality. Unless of course you need to do editing in Premiere, then you would need to encode to MPEG-2 DVD after that step.

     

    Thanks

    Original captured as vob, converted to H.264 finally encoded to dvd file again.

    That workflow will give the quality of the final image a significant hit.

    You need to drop the H.264 conversion and go straight to mpeg2-dvd in PP.

    Look this up and burn to disk without transcoding again.

    Forget about the filesize if you want a reasonable good result.

  • If you are on Windows, be sure you run Encore "as administrator."

     

    Make sure there are no disks in the drive when you start.

     

    Then try building to a Blu-ray image rather than burning a disc.

    It has never worked for me, nor for many people. As stated above, make a BluRay image, then use something like ImgBurn to burn the image to disk.

  • If that very old version requires activation, you will need to go to the link below and use a different process

     

    CS2 + Acrobat 7 + Audition 3 (AND EARLIER) Activation Server is gone, so read below

    https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs2-product-downloads.html?promoid=19SCDRQK

    You MUST use the special version and serial number on the page, not your original disc or serial number

  • Hi! Is the Encore DVD 1.5.1 installer still available for download anywhere? I have a license for it, but lost the DVD, haven't had to author a DVD for years but suddenly I need to again.

    Thanks.

  • Are you able to have Encore create an ISO on your hard drive instead of trying to go direct to a DVD?

  • John's step is a good test for many issues. Many of us never use Encore to burn.

     

    But, especially if the build to image fails, the Encode Failed error may be due to long file name issues. Up to 80 characters will work. Anything longer fails.

  • 09/30/17--11:42: Alternative to Encore CS6
  • I have downloaded the trial version of TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6.  This is a new version(9/27/2017).  It is good for 30 days.  I have a 1:21:26 video.  I edited the video in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017.  I created an MPEG2-DVD video.  In Encore I made an iso file.  I used ImgBurn to create the DVD.  It took 12 minutes.  I used the same video in TMPGEnc.  However, I used the MPGE2-DVD video.  It took 10 minutes to make the DVD.  I could not see any difference in the quality.  I have not used all of the features yet.

    You said "however" regarding using the mpeg2-dvd for the TMPGEnc version. I assume it was the same file exported from PR - mpg or m2v/wav? And that the difference was that you burned from  the TMPGEnc version rather than creating an image and burning

     

    $100 after trial ($99.95), right?

     

    Thanks for posting the info.
