I made a slideshow with Elements 10 (WDWS XP) and when I try to burn to a DVD, it locks up at 2% and says there is an encoding error? How do I fix it? The needed space is less than 3gB.
Sorry, I guess I posted to the wrong Forum. It's very frustrating to buy a program that doesn't work! I had Pinnacle but I wanted something that would make a slide show in higher definition. A friend told me this was the program to get. It isn't as user friendly as Pinnacle but I thought I was starting to get the hang of it. I was encouraged at first because in the preview, the definition was much better than Pinnacle. I had a lot of problems with photos getting split and gaps appearing between the slides. I figured out that I needed to create the sequence in sceneline, not timeline and that I shouldn't add background music until the sequence was completed. I got some help from the videos but not clear instruction on how to accomplish what I wanted. All I wanted to do was create a slide show of my trip to Europe. The program didn't come with an instruction manual, so I bought and borrowed five different books to help figure it out. I wasn't able to find an answer to one single question in any of the five books! Maybe I made a mistake purchasing this program?
I've created this slide show three times now. When I try to burn to a DVD, I get Transcoding error at 2%. I've tried TDK, and Phillips DVDs with the same result. I tried burning to a file; same result, transcoding error at 2%.
The photos are large (8Mb - 4928x3264) but I want high definition, that's why I purchased the program.
Please, can anyone help me?
