In older versions of Premiere, you could export an AVI and include timeline chapter points. Is that possible with Premiere/CS4? I've looked through the help info and I don't find anything that addresses the issue. I know I can open a dynamic link in Encore to a Premiere sequence, but that, like a lot of things in CS4, is so sluggish and problematic I'm finding I want to avoid doing so, opting for importing AVIs into Encore that I've exported from Premiere using AME. I don't see the old check-box in AME that give the option to include DVD chapter point in the export either.
Got that part .. I have the chapter marks set on the timeline .. It's when I
export that timeline to an AVI that I'm loosing the chapter markers. In
older versions, there was a check box that said "Export DVD Chapter Points"
.. That's what I'm missing in Premiere/CS4. The AME doesn't seem to export
the 'timeline dvd chapter markers' with the AVI file.
No answer here but wanted to echo same problem. Dynamic Link passes the chapter points perfectly for me but the disadvantage is that you can not use encore3 to work with it and my MasterCollection 4 suite is still really glitchy both with and without the updates. Have tried exporting avi, mpg2, and m2v files via media encoder and I loose all my chapter points in each case.
Don't forget that one MUST name the DVD Chapter Markers. The name can be anything, but characters must be in the dialogue box. Do not know if this will help anyone, and is only a check in the workflow.
The only reason for continuing with Encore CS3 is that with the CS4, have
been unable to stabilize it after two weeks and several hours of on phone
support with tech support. Only want I have found to get chapter markers to
encore4 is via the dynamic link, which itself has frozen more than once, and
after using the same file with named chapter markers in the name and
comments field, have been completely unsuccessful in exporting avi, mpg2, or
m2v files to encore with chapter markers. And, since dynamic link does not
work with encore3, I am left with the lament of authoring in PPro3 and using
Encore3 until my CS4 stabilizes.
My system is just not acting normally even with all the installs/reinstalls
(about 6-8), running with and without the 4.1 update. Just a real crazy
situation. Intel I940 chip with 6gb memory, GTX280 card with 1gb memory, 3
Tbs of SATA drives, Vista 64 ultimate. My other Adobe products (Photoshop
CS2, Premiere CS4, Acrobat Pro, Audition 3, etc.), all work flawlessly and
have since installing them on my new system in January. And, I am sure than
eventually, CS4 will also, but for now.......
Thanks for the feedback.
Thanks for the feedback but am apparently using the current updates: Encore
4=4.0.1.048 and Premiere=4.1.0 (113(MC:166418). I told my Adobe Tech guy by
mail today: I finished the project in Encore3 with absolutely no problems.
Today, I loaded this same file back into Encore4 and this time, the
transcode settings were correct, showing the same values as it did in
Encore3. This is about a 7.5gb file transcoded to 4.2gb. I then generated
a dvd+r from Encore4 with no problem. Go figure!
