It is the details that will expedite matters. You are cutting to very close on this troubleshooting, but let us see what we can do.
What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system?
What specific error message are you getting from Premiere Elements burn to disc DVD disc?
In the burn dialog what does it say in the Quality Area for Space Required and Bitrate?
Do you have a check mark next to Fit Contents to Available Space?
Do you have a disc menu for this DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc? If so, did you leave enough space between the markers so that they are not sitting on top of one another? Are you using stop markers on the Timeline? If you have one at the very end of the last item on the Timeline, get rid of it.
Do you think that we can get in some expedited troubleshooting in the next few hours? But you need to answer what I ask so that I can plot troubleshooting strategy as we go.
Do you have any other thread active on this matter at this time?
First of all thank you, my stomach is in knots, I don't know what I will do If this doesn't work. This was my first time using the program. Error message just says error followed by numbers 2130932483
I added a disk menu but I dont know how to get to it to see the markers, it is not displayed. I do not believe I am using stop markers.
No other thread active.
I was able to burn it to a folder and put it on the dvd-r but its only on there as a prel.
Here is the plan. I would really like to know what version of Premiere Elements you are using and on what computer operating system it is running. Right now I am assuming at least Windows as the operating system.
So, in the name of trying to expediate matters, let us do this if you have really taken your Timeline and gotten through the Share/Disc/DVD burn to Folder (4.7 GB) and have that saved folder with a VIDEO_TS Folder in it.
Do you have such a saved folder with a VIDEO_TS Folder in it?
If so, we will burn that to DVD disc to get the DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc with a free program named ImgBurn.
At this point, details are important to keep the communication channels moving effectively and rapidly.
Please, supply the details.
Coming attraction...if all is as said, you will be getting that VIDEO_TS Folder to DVD using the following
The download information for the free ImgBurn is included in the link.
We will be watching for your progress.
Thanks for the additional information.
Have you tried the Publish+Share/Disc/DVD and the choice of burn to: Folder (4.7 GB)?
If not try that and see if that goes to completion.
If worse comes to worse, we might consider exporting the Timeline to DV AVI standard or widescreen (whichever you have) and maybe involving the funeral director to project that from a computer playback onto a screen???
But let us keep a positive thought for the burn to disc or folder right now.
That 2130932483 has at times been associated with what are called compiling errors. But, I am not sure where that 2131042562 came from. Did the error messages switch on you and are they all coming after you hit burn.
At this point I am not sure if burn to folder or exporting to a file is going to resolve the issue.
It could be that you have a defect in the way the project was put together on the Timeline.
If none of the routes mentioned so far are working, then go into the Expert workspace, expand the Timeline to get a good look at what is going on there. Look for:
a. slivers/leftovers, they usually present a very thin black vertical lines scattered about the Timeline track content
b. look for gaps
c. look for misplaced transitions
I tried the burn to folder, but like i had said it only burns the project itself not VIDEO_TS file. I had seen some of your earlier posts and and was wondering if i open a new project and apply and force different settings before that one, can i drop my project in there with the Add media function? If that is a possibility I would need to know what settings to put it on. If we do go the burn to folder route how do i need to burn that so that it gives me the VIDEO_TS file? I dont know if this makes a difference but i am using this to create a layered slideshow. (Sill images,music, and text.) it plays fine in my project timeline. I dont think it would be an issue but thought that i would ask.
Thanks I hope we do get this figured out.
You may be misunderstanding burn to folder.
After you set for burn to Folder (4.7 GB) and hit burn, does it error out or go to completion?
And, before you hit burn, what is set as the save location in that burn dialog?
If you are getting a successful (no error) burn to folder, then go to the location for the saved folder, open the folder and look for a VIDEO_TS Folder in that folder.
How far do you get with the suggestion?
In regards to your recommendations to correct. Whan you say gaps, is that gaps between anything or just all together. Can you have a break in photos but have continuous music/vice versa? or does each line (video,music, etc) have to be connected to itself with no gaps?
How many video and audio tracks are you working with? Just Video 1 and Audio 1 or other?
Other information of importance
a. what is on that Timeline...
photos, how many, what size in terms of pixel dimensions
videos, what format
b. did you set the project preset or did you just go with whatever the project set
c. are you going for DVD-VIDEO widescreen 16:9 or 4:3
d. what do you see in the burn dialog for Space Required and Bitrate
All important...let us see how far we get on this line.
Then with that information we can decide whether a new project would help. You cannot import one project.prel into another.
That was great news if you have a completed VIDEO_TS Folder.
Right now go with whatever Speed your disc supports.
Let us get that VIDEO_TS on the DVD disc as DVD-VIDEO.
Are you OK with the details in the link that I gave you for ImgBurn and the VIDEO_TS Folder?
If not, I will go step by step with you through that once you have ImgBurn downloaded and installed.
Sounding very good if you have the VIDEO_TS.
One more quick question though watching it now, if the images are coming out a little blurry is that the speed i burned it at? I had heard that if you burn from a folder you should burn at the slowest speed so I burned at 3x, if i burn faster could it help with the quality?
The burn speed has never been a critical factor for me with regard to "little blurry". Slower is not a generalized better. The speed rating for the burner and the disc all factor in. What are they?
It could have been your project settings or your Timeline content.
All the details that go into one of these creations factors in.
So many questions and so little time.
Let us see what the overview is of what is produced.
We will be watching for your results for a little longer. It is pushing 1 am where I am.
Thanks again for your help I have some things i can play with but just being OCD with it haha. Im going to recopy it into a new project and reset my settings to 1080p 60. OR just change them on my own just in case what i have works though thank you so much
I am not sure what you intend for "recopy it into a new project"...there is no copy/paste between projects unless you are using a 3rd party software such as ClipMate. That worked OK for a few earlier versions. It works OK with version 11, except that it has an issue with the copy/paste insert of the transitions.
It is always important to set up the project so that the project preset matches the properties of your source media. Premiere Elements 11 takes over setting an automatic project preset but does not always do the job OK. That is when you need to step in to set the project preset manually before importing the media.
If you are talking 1080p60, can I assume that you have more than photos in this presentation.
Lots to talk about with regard to source media properties, project settings, and export goals and expectations and settings. There is not much you can do with the burn to DVD settings. But, if you go into exporting a file to save to your computer hard drive, then we can get into export setting customization.
I am about to call it a day.
My sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your cousin. The thoughts and love behind your video presentation will shine through.
>images are coming out a little blurry
Click Why isn't my DVD as clear and detailed as my original footage?
