Encore CS3 Error setting up transcode

Oct 20, 2013 1:17 AM

Ok, so I rebuilt from scratch my Encore 2 project that CS3 and CS4 won't open, and got it finished in CS3 (as 4 won't load half the jpgs).  Go to build a DVD and get 'Error setting up transcode' pretty well immediately.

 

Cut the project back to just ONE JPEG file in a 'slideshow' and same thing happens!!

 

Tried CS4 opening same thing and it just looks at it for about 20 secs and poof! goes away.

 

So now what do I do? (yes, I've trawled the forums for ideas and can't find anything that works)

    I sent you a PM offering to test one of your jpgs on my CS3 and CS4 installs. Will be with that machine later today.

    NTSC or PAL? Using build or transcode now? (Since it is a slideshow, I don't think it matters.)

     

    What if you add 2 menus from the encore library, link them to each other, and build to folder?

    I"ll be with the CS3 install again tomorrow.

     

    I opened this with CS6. Opened without problem, able to build to folder, and play back with total media theater.

     

    The slide is rotated on its side, but it panned okay.

    Thanks for reporting. Which version of Proshow did you use?

    If you ever have problems with Proshow, here is another Encore alternative http://www.deskshare.com/dvd-authoring-burning-software.aspx (I have NOT used, I just saved the link because other people have mentioned the program)
