I'm trying to use an avi file with closed captions. I tried an avi with Microsoft 1 codec and then with Cinepak. Also tried an mov file and an uncompressed avi. No luck with any. What can I do to fix this?

    What specifically are you doing? You've added the file to Encore as a timeline?

    I don't use scc files, but try exporting from PPro as MPEG2-DVD and import the 2 files (video and audio) in Encore

    As an FYI, it looks like the problem was that I had to transcode the DVD first before I could see it.

    In the link above to Encore SCC:


    "Closed captions that you add to your DVD project will only appear on the final DVD; they do not appear in Encore, in either the Monitor panel or Project Preview window."

    Any ideas?

    Yes - do not use CinePak codec. Always try to use a lossless AVI codec, such as Lagarith instead.


    Also, do not reply overmuch on the preview mode, as it is an approximation, and a lot of things simply will not be the same on the final multiplexed disc. This is important to keep in mind, as the preview mode is trying to work with the assets as loaded, not as they will be when multiplexed. A lot of sync type issues will also go away when you compile.
