Hi again. This is another "first" for me. I have a 66 min timeline that I am trying to export to DVD, mpg2 using the Media Decoder.
I have searched and checked the "Help" areas but found no help.
I carefully made sure the sliders just above the timeline were set to include the entire timeline. These are actually the two sliders found on the vertical
hashmarks on the timeline.
Out of the 66 minutes to be exported, only 44 minutes of the video track was exported. Here's the
strange part, all 66 minutes of the audio track DID export just fine.
Tks, Tom B.
Thanks John for your quick reply. Yes, I see right where you are directing me.
However, my project is full of extra layers and color grading along with my 2X VBR pass, so
it will be about 12 hours before I can export and see if it works this time. You will be the first to know.
There are two functions, that can readily affect the Timeline's Export:
Yes, Hunt, got it........ those are the "sliders" I was referring to. I just didn't know to call them "work area brackets".
Thanks for the link......
That said, the only thing I'm concerened about is that when I exported the 66 minute timeline, the brackets were at "0" and "1;06;30;09",
yet the encoder only exported 44 minutes of the video but ALL 66 minutes of the audio..... I can't figure that one out.
I am encoding again right now, will take about 12 hours. I hope it works this time. Tks
John, Hunt, Ann,
Well, sorry, but it didn't make any difference. I did carefully follow your suggestions.
NOTE: All 66 minutes of the audio did export.
Only 44 minutes of the video exported. Same as the other two tries.
(This is a wedding video, it stops exporting, the video part only, during the last sequence of the timeline....)
I'm stumped... I have never had your problem... when I set in/out points and tell PPro to export between those, it does... when I tell PPro to export the entire timeline, it does
>during the last sequence of the timeline
Hmm... I always have all video on the timeline, and do not use separate sequences for different parts of my total video
I may be misunderstanding... do you have different clips, with all video on the timeline, so each video is "seamlessly" butted up to the previous file?
Yes, there are four sequences butted together. It is during the middle of the last sequence that it stops exporting video, audio exports fine.
Here's what I have done. i exported the fourth sequence by itself. that's the sequence that stops exporting when the four sequences are
dropped onto the timeline together. It exported fine and all 16 minutes have exported.
Now then, I can open Encore and drop both the incomplete exported video onto the timeline and the final exported sequence video at the end of the same timeline, however, I need to delete about 5 minutes of the first video since there is now a repeat of about 5 minutes of that asset. How can I shorten the first exported video, now on the Encore timeline, so the two exported clips make the correct complete 66 minute video?? I know this is as clear as "mud". Ask if this is not real clear.
I did it ... found a workaround. Here's what I found. By using the Properties window over on the right side in Encore, I shortened the exported video to the right length so it would end at the right time. Then I dropped in the final sequence and it worked just right.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions..
Now then, that still leaves me wondering just what happened. I did a general search on Google and found that someone else found a glitch just like my experience when a lot of filtering was used in CS4. Several others users found the same glitch. I used a lot of color grading amd multiple video tracks during the reception (the fourth sequence). Maybe that was the issue ???
