    i was in the pre-release program for encore, and all these updates are great.... but my beef for CS6 is still the blasted blu-ray format. adobe REALLY needs to set up a brand new app from the ground up just for blu-ray, or have a different version of encore just for blu-ray. (i would love to see cs7 with full Java capabilities!)  kick the sonic author-core to the curb if that's the problem. i could come up with some pretty complex menus mentally, but it doesnt matter cause i could never actually pull them off when theres that 2 second track gap from asset to assett. its just maddening that i can't do a simple trasitional sequence with dup menus for blu-rays. works flawlessly for DVD though? but not for blu-ray. is that a BD Spec issue that hollywood bypasses by using java? or is it just how encore itself handles the BD table of contents?

     

    other than that, the only features that really stood out to me were the chapter play-list, DTS-MA, and background processing for HUGE assetts for encore. (no more status bar locking up the app for an hour while you import a single 40gb Blu-Ray timeline. TRULY revolutionary!)

     

    if only the 2 second track gap could be fixed. =(

    Andy,

     

    When you mention Chapter Playlist, do you mean that this feature now works for Blu-ray?  If so, Hooray!!!

     

    Amen to the 2 second track gap.

    That ain't new.  HDV source is UFF, and has been going onto DVD like that for years (after downscaling, of course).

    Yes , Chapter playlist works for Bluray as well as webDVD in 6.0. Also Encore CS6 includes new options that provide more flexibility when you play chapter playlists:

    • Sequential: Play chapter playlists sequentially.

    • Random: Let the player randomly select a set of chapters to play.

    • Shuffle: Let the player play all the chapters in any random order.

    This is not a BD spec limitaion which Hollywood people are bypassing. Its the limitaion in En that the BD export code does not have some BD connection conditions set which can transition from one clip to other seamlessly. (This is due to En's dependency on the third party for BD export)

    I thnk the problem was that Encore would allow you to set UFF and then happily make it BFF.

    Well that would truly suck, but...no Encore CS5 took my UFF .m2v file just fine.  It was marked as Do Not Transcode.  It did not transcode when I built a folder, and when I opened the folder and examined the VOB, it was still UFF.

     

    Like I said, UFF for DVD isn't new in CS6.

    Not if you were using DL. Encore flipped the fields to lower on digest.

    If you exported from Premiere to and imported into Encore there was no issue.

    Ann, thanks for clarifying the conditions under which Encore was flipping!

    well in that case, how big of a job is it to fix this "feature?" this has been my main beef with encore since i got into blu-ray in 2010. is this even on the radar for improvements for en? this feature alone would greatly improve encore to begin with. java capabilities would be wishful thinking, but not as important. closing the BD track gap issue, on the other hand, would be a god send.

    yop, the issue with seamless playing transitions between menus and so..is definitely a huge problem for me.

    There is also some other changes that between CS5 and CS6. They did finaly fix the issue with flash export (loop point) and slideshow works better, but unfortunately I've found new issue with flash, when you use transitions between menus, there is problem that it actually play the same video transition for all links...

    The blu-ray seamless playback issue is something that is yet to be worked upon to make Encore one of the best professional authoring tool.

    If you can provide some more information about your problem than it would be easy for people to help. Information like the Flowchart snapshot, what is the transition that you are applying for all links etc.

    here you can see what it does

     

    and here the structure:

    http://fortunastudio.net/test/ http://fortunastudio.net/test/AuthoredContent.xml

     

    I didnt upload slideshow video and main video co after the transition video it will just freeze.

    Also it should preload the transitions from the active menu for more seamless transitions between menus...

    I also did a quick test around this and yes, the issue is there. Only one transition is being played for all the links.

     

    EDIT : I also don't seem to have a workaround right now.

    What does "Chapter PlayList support for Blu-ray and web DVDs" mean? Thank you

    A "playlist" allows you to create a playlist, and then add different timelines to it, in any order you want. A "chaprter playlist" allows you to create a playlist for a timeline, in which you can have one or more chapters from that timeline in any order.

     

    The Bluray spec supports "chapter playlists," but Encore CS5.5 and earlier did not. Encore only provide a chapter playlist for DVD. Now Encore provides the "chapter playlist for DVD, BD, and web DVDs (flash exports).

    Yes, chapter playlist along with three different Playback options (Blu-ray and WebDVD)

    1. Sequential : Player honors the sequence of chapters you put in the chapter playlist

    2. Random : Player applies its own algorithm to play the chapters in the chapter playlist randomly. All the chapters might not play.

    3. Shuffle : Here also player applies its own algo to play the chapters randomly but this time all the chapters would play.
