    Import as timeline. Set the "transcode setting" for the asset to "automatic." Add any menus, motion menus, and navigation before  you transcode or build. It is best to use a minimally compressed file for this method.


    Second method: use a bitrate calculator, and transcode using those settings. It is best to do that when you export the original file rather than after importing.


    If you need more detail, let us know.

    Export from Premiere Pro as (standard or widescreen) DV AVI and do what Stan said


    I don't care to get into bit budgeting and MPEG2 DVD adjustments, so I always export from PPro as Widescreen DV AVI (from AVCHD) and then let Encore use the automatic transcode setting to get a "best fit" of video to either a single or dual layer DVD blank

    You can ignore both of those warnings. However, they are easy to fix.


    Select the timeline. In properties, set the End Action to "stop." Or, if you want it to loop until the user presses the stop button, set it to itself.


    For the "title remote not set," click on the Flowchart tab and click on the disk. In the properties panel, set the "Title Button" to the timeline.

    still getting a sort of ghost effect

    That is not normal.


    Separate the "transcoding" of the asset by using "Transcode Now" prior to using the build panel. First, make sure the asset didn't get transcoded before the hang up. Does it still say "Untranscoded" in the "DVD Transcode Status" column? In the project panel, right click on the asset (the video file, not the timeline) and select "transcode now."


    This will help you sort out whether the problem is transcoding the asset, or some other part of the build operation.

    That error message is from Windows, right?


    So the quick options didn't work. More info needed. Post a screenshot of your project panel might help. Dynamic link? Imported file?
