I am a wedding videographer and have been trying to give a couple thier final video for weeks now.
I have created 8 different images of the final video but no luck. I put the disc in my PS3 and it stutters and freezes and random points.
I put the disc in another Sony stand alone player and it did the same thing. I then put the disc in a Sharp Blu ray player and it played with no problems.
I have even tried using a different brand of discs to see if that would fix it but still not. I have tried using dynamic link, then meida encoder to blu ray file and brining the file into encore. Still nothing seems to help it.
I do have menus, the only motion I have is music. They are all stand alone menus linked together ( no pop up)
The only thing I have not tried yet is burning an mpeg file instead of h.26. Not sure if that will help.
Does anyone else have any suggestions on how to overcome this problem? I have never had it before. I have done many projects in encore and played them fine on the PS3
But this one does not seem to matter how many versions I make, or changes I have.
Is the stuttering only in the timelines? Or moving from/to menus?
Are the menus operating correctly?
It might help if you post a screenshot of your flowchart.
More specifics re your source file, PR sequence settings, export settings.
I assume all files are coming into Encore as "do not transcode." True?
The stuttering used to be in the menus also, but that was when I was using dynamic link.
The stuttering stopped in the menus after I used media encoder
But now the timeline skips or it will just freeze when you skip to the next chapter. But only on certain machines
I filmed the video in 1080p- 24fps. I encoded the file as an h.26 blu ray file at 720p- 24fps. VBR pass 2. Target bit rate of 25 mbps, max 28. I have tried PCM audio and Dolby digital.
This is encore cs6
I brought it down the 720p because i shot with a panasonic hmc150 and it has been recomened that filming at 1080 and then compressing to 720 yeilds a better picture. (honesetly i can't tell the difference and neither can my client, but it does save some encoding time.)
It appears that creating the disc in mpeg2 blu ray has solved my issue.
Interesting. To try to sort it further, try it, changing your default transcode to MPEG2, but using H264 for assets you transcode.
