Multiple Videos in an Encore Project

Aug 22, 2013 5:57 AM

Hi there,

 

I am trying in the last week multiple ways of make a Dvd Project with multiple videos.

I already have made 2 menus with 6 chapters each the problem is having 12 videos there without having the error "Size Exceed".

I read several articles and posts about this problem, the best way i found was using this formula 520/minuter = bitrate.

The problem is setting the bitrate when converting the videos because in total they only have 240 minutes what is possible to put in a dvd i think.

i already convert them to Mpeg2 and become more large in the mb space.

 

If anyone know i apreciate the answer and possible solution.

Cheers.

    What bitrate are you actually using? (520/240 = 2.16667; are you using 2.1?)

     

    Are you transcoding them before importing to Encore? If so, does Encore show them as "do not transcode"?

    Export from Premiere using the MPEG2-DVD format. Change the bitrate as you need. You will get two files, m2v and wav. The m2v should show "do not transcode" in Encore.

    Sometimes it does not work to put multiple videos/audios on the same timeline. Put one video (and the audio that goes with it) on one timeline. Use a playlist to combine them to a full movie.

    You have no video files or image files, but instead 4 AC3 files.

    Try this:

    Fire up Premiere & make one single clip instead of 4 separate ones, and use LPCM for your audio. If youy absolutely must use 4 separate clips, again use LPCM audio & allow Encore to transcode. with 4 separate clips playback will be interrupted each time as the player ends an encoded AC3 & then finds the next & starts to decode & pass audio - this can take up to 2 seconds, depending on the system being used & is a nasty problem. The only real way to solve this is to make one large file from the 4 small ones & use chapter playlists & playlists to combine as required.

    Hi there,

     

    I try to combine all them in one, i already have try this way the problem was i only was creating a single file and not one for audio and other for video.

    So i create 5 chapters in one track, exporting in MPEGIIDVD (.m2v) and Dolby Audio (.ac3).. ty for the tip of using LPCM but with that the video size become too much large.

    This way building the DVD in Encore only take some minutes since i already transcode them in Adobe Converter. I already try this export in a dvd and is great.

    The only thing that sometimes crash is when i'm making the chapters in Encore.. Until now i export 5 videos and its ok i will try to export with 10 and then 12 which is my prediction for each DVD.

    I'm very happy about your answers they really help me.. When i have my project 100%i will come here and post something

     

    Ty for all your help guys..

     

    Cheers.

    Hiya Fabio.

     

    If you are only getting a single file then you forgot a setting somewhere to export to elementary streams and not a program stream. It's there - trust me on this.

    The reason I suggested exporting to LPCM is to allow you to import your separate video & audio files into Encore & let that handle the transcoding.

    Until you get used to bit budgeting, using the automatic settings is the safest approach.

     

    Good Luck.
