On my preview interface there is a light gray area which as two icons on the bottom. One looks like a house and the other looks like a funnel. What do they mean?
The problem I'm having is related to these icons. When I hit the play button the dvd plays fine until I hit the return to menu, then when I hit play again the house icon goes to number "2' and the video stops playing and returns to root menu. When I hit play a second time it plays fine and the house icon in on "1" again. What would be going on?
Thanks, so it's a chapter point, the question then is why hitting the play button a second time is starting at chapter "2" when the timeline is set to start at chapter one? One time it plays chapter one the next time it tries to start at chapter two quits and goes to menu. All my other dvd play correctly I must have a setting wrong and I can not figure out which setting would cause this type of repeat to happen.
No over rides, I'm getting close though when I don't use menu music the time line plays fine every time I hit play. As soon as I add music by dragging to the menu it will only play every second time I hit play. I've changed duration from 20 seconds to 19:15 is there a standard to this length?
By the way how do you delete music file from the menu? It says it's being used by the program.
There should be no effect from motion/audio on the menu and what link is being accessed. Makes me wonder about performance issues.
Have you rendered the menu?
Sometimes Encore's preview is not as the DVD will be, and ultimately, you must burn a test.
To delete the music from the menu (not the project), open the motion tab (in the right of your screencap), click on the audio, and hit delete. You can then delete it from the project if you wish.
Yes I think your correct about the performance issues. I started over with just a simple menu no chapters, no music just like I did many times and again the same performance issues. I am using a 36GB Quick Time Reference file which I think is causing problems this time.
I'm rendering out a disc to see how it plays.
Some file formats/CODEC's, while supported, can take a lot of processing horsepower to use.
I have never used QT Reference files, so this is only a guess, but I can say that WMV files take about 5 - 10x as long to process, as a DV-AVI will.
I use a fair number of MOV [Animation] files, as Button Transitions. They are tiny, but do not slow down my Transcoding, that I can detect. They just work fine.
I'm using version 5.1, I don't see a tab under preferences to increase RAM. I am on a 64 bit system.
The disc did play fine after I burned it, strangely after I made a copy in Roxio it did not choke at the end of the video.
Thanks for all the help.
