Slideshow Decoder issue

I've seen a few people having this problem but haven't seen a solution that works. Spece/tech details are...


Windows 8 Pro 64Bit

32Gb Ram

1TB+ free space

Intel I7 3820CPU

Nvidia GTX 560Ti GPU

Master Suite CS6


All Software/OS updates applied.



I am trying to make a DVD slideshow.  I used the Photoshop actions to resize save as TIFF's all images as well using the actions to remove the flicker.

When I try to use the "Import As/Slideshow" fucntion in Encore I get the attached dialog box.  I have created a standard  Encore  project using only default settings.  I have re-run all alctions and created new Encore projects, same result every time.

I have installed quicktime/VLC/Codec Pak to ensure the the H 264 codec is installed and working, it is.


I stall get this problem, and Encore refuses to import any of my files.

Any help would be great.

    I work with 16-bit Images too, and Scale to match my Project (am always doing this in PrPro, but it's the same). I always include a line in my Action to change the Bit-Depth to 8-bit, before doing the Save_As.


    It would be the same, if I was working with CMYK Images (only do those for delivery to a printer), in that I would have a line in the Action to change Color Mode to RGB.


    Glad that you found the issue and good luck,
