    I've tried with one timeline, and with multiple and it's all the same.

    Having trouble downloading the zip file. (Still trying.) Can you zip up the one timeline test project that shows the problem?

    It will take several hours to download. It's a 65 GB file.

     

    I think I will just have to face it: There is no solution to the jumping DVD menu.

     

    Are you familiar with Pegasys? Since Adobe no longer supports Encore, I see in other forums that some folks are turning to this company for their disc-authoring solution.

    I second the motion to try creating an .iso from Encore then burn that with third-party. If that doesn't work, consider that maybe something is wrong with your DVD burner? A replacement is cheap. Or have you perhaps changed to a different blank media that maybe the duplication machine doesn't like? Even if you are still using the same media brand, the supplier can change sources and still slap the same labeling/branding on what is essentially a different disc. Or maybe the duplicator is having problems - does it work if you try using an OLDER master that was known to work before? See if there is a FIRMWARE UPDATE for the duplicator machine.

     

    Thanks

    Less than 2 hours for a straight download actually, but that large, dropbox is requiring syncing to my desktop, which of course is not done. It just said "1 second" so maybe....

    Amazing. The project opened with a little relinking. Have to go out for a while.

     

    Can you see the issue in Encore preview?

    You have overrides set on the buttons. Did you intend that?

    Select the menu in encore. Under properties, you'll see a choice between setting the menu to 4:3 or 16:9. It is set for 4:3 and should be set to 16:9 to match your movies.

    I'll give it a go.

  • 12/13/18--18:39: Export an .ISO image file?
  • I have a 6+ hour video that I need to have published onto two Dual Layer DVDs (DVD-9 discs = 8.5GB each). The printer said: "you can save some $$ and upload an .iso image to our Project Center." Uhhh. I'm used to exporting digital movie files (using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 + Adobe Media Encoder) and normal DVDs (using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 + Adobe Media Encoder + Adobe Encore). I'm having a hard time figuring out how to export .ISO image files. Also, I'm not sure if I can check the .ISO images to see how the DVD menu will work out, as the printer doesn't check for functionality. And I don't know how I'd make sure I can make the video file as high quality as possible to fit on those two discs. I currently have the video broken into two different Premiere Pro projects, with Encore markers set up. Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Are they going to duplicate (burn) or replicate (press)? Either way, but especially replication, you need the checking from them.

     

    But yes, you can "mount" the .iso and test it. Also burn a test disk.

     

    The .iso is produced by Encore.

     

    The layer break involved in dual layer can be a huge problem. Have you done that before?

    Thanks for your response Stan! Boy, I'm not sure about the "burn" vs. "replicate". I'll ask them.

     

    I'll have to look into "layer break", as I've never heard of it. Is this something that I need to take care of before I send the files to them? Or does the publisher do this?

    thank you it worked for me
    i recently upgrated my pc to windows 10 and its working fine on my end

    I tried to Build an .iso file out of Encore CS6. The files were built and encoded out of Premiere CC 2019 as h.264 and an ac3 audio file and I couldn't understand why it wasn't working. Thank you for sharing the solution.

    Yea it is a pain. Do yourself a favor and take meticulous notes on the problems you encounter and how to work around them. While I can understand the quandary Adobe ended up in that caused them to discontinue Encore specifically, I cant empathize with their decision to basically abandon DVD authoring all together. With a still sizable army of people that request disc delivery for playback it would be awesome if Adobe developed a cloud based replacement for Encore that Dynamic links to the other apps just as Encore did. Almost any video pro worth their salt at one point or another is going to be asked if they can deliver the footage or final edit on a DVD.  If you're relying solely on Adobe the answer to that question for some is probably no.

    Ok, thanks! Why would it be so difficult to install a legacy product? I have tried free authoring software and they are very buggy with Windows 10.

    The problem is that DVD Authoring uses licensed technology, and all the free tools are reverse engineered hacks that are based on their developers reverse engineering released titles.

    You also need to take into consideration that Encore has not been developed now for years, ever since Rovi shut Sonic Solutions down in favour of their online streaming model so please don't blame Adobe for this mess - blame Rovi as it is all their fault.

    Encore is admittedly limited but it does work and is perfectly capable of doing the job properly. What you will not get it to do reliably (if at all) is use stuff like Dynamic Linking from Premiere Pro CC, but that was always a bad idea even when it was still being developed.

     

    Solutions:

    1 - Do what Ann suggested, and install Encore CS6. This will work as a standalone tool quite nicely, and there are plenty of people here to help out if you get into difficulty. An M2V and a WAV file is perhaps not the best way to go - you really should feed encore with an uncompressed video file, as this will allow you to properly optimize the assets although an M2V will be fine as long as you have encoded it properly to the right standards.

    2 - Buy a different application, such as Scenarist SD or DVD-Lab Pro.

    The Layer Break is something that you must do at your end as it is part of the authoring process.

    This has to be done after the main disc is compiled to a Video_TS folder, but before you create the ISO image.

    Perhaps the easiest way to do this on a PC (bear in mind that Mac is just not DVD friendly these days) would be to create the Encore output to a DVD Folder (this will create the Video_TS folder, which is your DVD file set in DVD legal form) and then either

    A - use Encore to set the layer break (check the online help for this as the exact details are not in my head right now, or

    B - use IMGBurn to create the ISO image where it will then present you with a list of legal layer break positions (you can even preview these) and make absolutely certain that you do not have the check box marked for "Do not update IFO/VOB files and IMGBurn will automatically modify the IFO control files for you.

    If you need to provide a replication master this will most likely be in DDP form, and that can present issues for those not used to this - but if you do need this form please post back & I will try too walk you through it.

    Sorry but a cloud app will never be capable of doing this as there are way too many variables and the file sizes are just too large.

    I have a couple of suggestions that may help.

    1 - Do not go from 4k progressive straight to DVD MPEG-2. Scale down to SD in the first instance (and for this you should have max quality checked as it is supposed to give better quality scaling) using the correct setting for the TV standard you require (NTSC or PAL).

    Make sure your output is set to "Scale to fit" and not "Scale to fill" as the latter may stretch the output.

    2 - Do not use Optical Flow - you are not frame rate converting (are you?) so there is no need (unless you are frame rate converting, which would explain an awful lot here)

    So - output to an SD AVI or an SD Quicktime ProRes (if on a mac as this option is not available for PC) in the first instance & then import the result into Encore, making sure it is correctly set to DVD in the right TV standard.

    I'm amazed that a project transferred like this opened and worked. I was able to build a BD and DVD. I think you'll find that the menu aspect was the issue.
