Why does my photo linger on?

Jan 9, 2012 6:32 PM

Hi group;


  I've been working on a documentary for about a year and am close to wrapping it up.  I've encountered a really frustrating issue though.  I have a lot of photos, most run thru Photoshop to size them appropriately and so forth.  In the main the photos are working just fine. 


There are two spots however where I need the image to cut off precisely with a cue in the underlying music.  In the CS5 Timeline this works great and is not a problem.  However, twice recently I have rendered the film to put it on DVD to get critiques from colleagues and both of these photos last well beyond the music cue, by nearly a full second.  I rechecked the timeline after seeing this and it is still as it should be.


  What is going on here and how can I fix it? 


BTW, the timeline is 1920x1080 29.97; and one of the renders was to H264 VimeoHD format,  The other render attempt was to MPEG II for a standard def DVD.


Thanks for any suggestions...

    It doesn't make sense that everything else synchs appropriately and one photo will not do so.


    I would experiment with the trimming.


    It should work out.

    Are you using a black still at the end of the sequence, or just ending with the photo?


    You should transition or cut to black at the end.

    You certainly should. Empty timelines do not always behave like expected.
