    Ok, I also tried,

    I have not rendered jet, but it is also shown right in the encore preview (like it was with the =)

    It might be a rendering problem from encore mh?

    If you have the Encore library installed, create a new test project, and bring in the sunset menu. Add one time line and link it to a button. Do you see the highlight in Encore preview?

    Also, in the Menu viewer, at the bottom, there are 3 buttons. See screenshot below. The one on the left shows you your menu in the "normal" (unselected) state, the middle one shows you the selected state (highlight for selected) and the right one, the activated state (highlight for activation).


    What do you see when you select those?

    Hi, I'm trying to build a Blu-ray project that has a mix of HD and SD video. All of the HD video files I bring into Encore as M2TS files are accepted as Blu-ray legal (as indicated by the transcode settings defaulting to "Do Not Transcode"), but none of the SD video seems to work without Encore wanting to transcode it. I can make it Blu-ray legal by taking it into Premiere Pro and exporting it as an MPEG2 Blu-ray file, but even without the audio track (which I've demuxed separately), that nearly quadruples the file size (1.32 GB up to 4.68 GB).


    This thread from 2010 has someone encountering a similar problem which they were able to solve by demuxing the streams and using TMP GENC Authoring Works to save the video in a Blu-ray legal format without needing to re-encode, but that software is both expensive and not compatible with macOS which are both problems for me.


    Does anyone know of ways to accomplish this same goal without using TMP? I'd like to be able to fit this on a single BD-DL which is absolutely doable with the original file sizes, but is impossible after PrePro makes them 3.5 times larger.

    Sorry; the translator is not working well enough for me to understand your question.

    lol. That was one of the threads I was going to link for you. There were non-TmpGenc options.


    If you are not providing a Blu-ray legal format, it must be DVD legal, i.e. MPEG2-DVD. It can't just be SD. So what format is your SD you are wanting to use?


    But you don't have to transcode it to MPEG2 Blu-ray. Use MPEG2 DVD. And the regular DVD bitrates are fine, which keeps the filesize down.


    I just did a test, and a classic SD avi and a 4K h.264, both exported from PR as MPEG2-DVD, imported to Encore as "Do not transcode" for the BD status.


    However, an odd wmv I had that is 1280x720 would not work.

    So, I've been using Adobe Premiere Pro for months now, and all of a sudden, when I create a new text box, in my adjustments, my styles will not appear for some reason. Any reason for this?

    The original files I'm working with are in MKV packages. The first thing I tried to do was to use tsMuxer to remux the MKVs into M2TS files. This worked for the 1080p content, but anything lower than 1080p Encore doesn't seem to like (even HD video at 720p).


    In order for Premiere to output an MPEG2 DVD file that gets even close the file size of the original MKV, I have to have a target bitrate at 1.5 Mbps. I'm currently exporting a video with those settings to see if it'll be useable (it's an SD bonus feature; it doesn't have to look stunning), but it's frustrating that I have to re-encode it at all when remuxing the MKV into an M2TS file works perfectly for 1080 video.


    UPDATE: Yeah, encoding at 1.5 Mbps is a no-go. Just looks awful. There's got to be some way to make SD video Blu-ray legal without massively increasing the file size while still preserving the original quality.

    No, not necessarily. mkv does not have to be DVD or BD legal. So no guarantee you can get the same quality at the same, or smaller, file size. But yes, that is the challenge: to repackage (no transcode of the video) or transcode to a format that Encore (or some other app) will accept as legal without transcoding yet again.


    What is actually in the mkv? Post a screenshot (in "tree" view) of mediainfo of a file.


    FYI, I can't tell if you already know this. As of PR 2018.1.1, there is limited, undocumented support for mkv. So if you haven't, see if you can take an mkv directly into PR and export. If that is what you are doing, let us know.

    Here are screenshots of the MediaInfo trees for the three files I'm having trouble with.


    First up is a 720p video:

    Second is the first of the SD videos:

    And here is the second SD video. Note, I'm not using all three audio tracks on this one, just Audio #1.

    The first one is the dimensions I had trouble with (1280x720). The second 2 are odd pixel sizes: 704x288 and 720x364. Not sure what issues might be involved in trying to a legal mpeg. But that is part of how the bitrate is so low.

    Yeah, for those clips I’m trying an experiment. I brought them into Premiere so I could export them out at the standard 720x480 resolution (albeit with a  massive file size), and now I’m re-re-encoding them in Handbrake to bring the file size back down in the hopes that I can then mux the MKV file into an M2TS container like I was able to do for the 1080p footage.


    I’m not confident this will work, but I don’t know what else to try at this point.


    UPDATE: And, of course it didn't work, although I think I might have discovered part of the problem. According to this, Encore only likes video with a framerate of 29.97 when it's interlaced. The video outputting from Premiere is interlaced, but when I re-encode it in Handbrake (even with the deinterlacing filters turned off), MediaInfo is showing that it's progressive. Is there a way to force Handbrake (or a similar software) to encode the video as interlaced?

    Hey Stan,

    when I select the buttons everything is shown right!


    I just read through the manual and tried out other resolutions for the menu in photoshop (my data had too much pixels).



    When I used the resolution given in the manual everything went fine!


    Thank you so much for your help!

    Excellent! Congratulations on good troubleshooting.

    This is enormously frustrating. After an entire day spent re-encoding these videos in a last ditch effort to try to make this work, they're now exactly match the specs in the post I linked to above, but Encore still isn't treating them as Blu-ray legal. I don't know what else to do. Outputting as M2Vs from Premiere works, but it makes them too large to fit on the disc I'm building, and any attempt I've made to bring the file size back down to manageable levels has been met with failure. It shouldn't be this difficult.


    Here are the MediaInfo screencaps for the two files, if that helps. I'm at a complete loss.

    If anyone has any thoughts, I'd really appreciate it. I don't know what else to try at this point.

    Since I don't think I said it, I'd go back to the DVD and start with the VOBs.


    The "maximum overall bitrate" is 35-40Mbps, way over the target/average, suggesting huge spikes. That alone can convince Encore they are out of spec.

    0 0

    Interesting. Now that I'm looking at it, the "Maximum Overall Bitrate" spec isn't introduced until I convert into M2TS using tsMuxer. I just tried it on the (much larger) M2V file and it adds the "Maximum Overall Bitrate" spec at 35.5 Mbps, but it's still recognized as Blu-ray legal in Encore. For comparison's sake, here's the version of the file that works:

    That may not be the problem; just a possibility. Some of these numbers are "nominal," meaning the program plugs in metadata based on a setting, and it may or may not be "real."


    Also, different encoders may be better or worse at actually delivering what they say. For example, a max bitrate of 8 may have spikes higher than that.


    Note however, that the max bitrate under the video section is only 9 for the files that works, and 40 for the ones that don't.


    Encore has a minimum bitrate, I think it is 1.5. That is the lowest setting it allows, and I think it treats files with lower bitrates as not legal. Yours appear above that.

    At this point I think I'm just about ready to throw in the towel and spread the content across two discs instead of trying to fit it all on one. It's all just incredibly frustrating.
