I am sorry but I didn't actually get your problem. You say that you created a chapter index.
Was it Multipage chapter Index (this creates different pages of the same menu) or just the chapter index (this just duplicates the menu and does the linking)?
When you say that the first chapter is corrupt with H264, does that mean it is not playing back correctly in Encore or this is the problem with the burnt disc?
Please elaborate more on this problem.
It's a simple create chapter index - where it replicates the chapter menu and links the back / next.
It's the moving menu that's corrupt. The video itself plays fine. As soon as you render the menu in Encore you can see the problem, but it only happens on the very first chapter.
It's like this on the disc too, so it's not an Encore playback problem - it's the menu render files that are wrong.
Could you paste a screen shot of the menu editor and the flowchart for me to understand the problem better.
What navigation are you doing?
By moving menu, do you mean that you have a motion menu?
Actually I am not getting the "menu is corrupt on the first chapter" part. So some screenshot might help.
