PGC aspect ratio not supported

Jun 22, 2010 12:38 PM

I am working on a complex DVD with many timelines. Some of which are .9 and some are 1.2 widescreen PAR. All files are SD and in DV AVI format. Everything has transcoded ok, but when I go and build the DVD I get a PGC aspect ratio not supported error.  I have re-rendered the file in serveral formats from Premiere including the mpeg2DVD preset.  Why won't encore build this DVD?  What could be causing this?  Thanks for any help.

    I have never tried to mix PARs in an Encore project

     

    What happens if you select just one PAR, and convert the other footage in Premiere, and then use just a single PAR in Encore?

    The DVD spec and Encore allow mixing footage in a project.  but I agree with John's experiment to narrow this down.

     

    Are any of your timelines mixed par within a single timeline?

     

    What are your menus?  I wonder if mixing menu pars, or assets for motion elements, might cause problems.

     

    What version of EN?  I wonder about mixing pre CS4 and CS4 or later pars.

    I recall only 1 report of this particular error (pgc, par not supported).  The user was MAC, CS4, but I don't think we saw much troubleshooting.  Widescreen was at issue.

     

    Can you describe the full, exact error message?

     

    What is your OS?

     

    What version of EN?

     

    I think I would create the simple single timeline project you describe, using the widescreen assets from your current project one at a time (new project every time).  All that makes sense to me is that you have some asset that is not complying.

     

    I might also Gspot each of the assets, looking for something that is odd.

    Even a gap of a few Audio Units can render a Timeline (no pun intended) useless. Gaps are bad, even tiny ones. The DVD and BD-specs. concentrate on Video, and it MUST be contiguous, i.e. no gaps anywhere.

     

    Glad that you got it sorted out, and happy authoring,
