How are you getting your Premiere Pro timeline to Encore... dynamic link or do you export a file from PPro?
Screen shots of your edit/export/author file settings work well to SHOW people what you are doing
I'm on a different computer so not able to get screenshot at the mo.
I use dynamic link, send to encore straight from after I put the video on the timeline.
Thanks, will have a look at that in a bit. To save time, I already done this 7 DVD set so its just swapping discs and opening a project to burn.
From what your saying its more the programs etc, I thought it was more to do with the hardware which would be a huge relief if it isnt.
I was assuming John was not understanding your question. Some program issues can challenge your computer, but when I think "loud," I think it should never be "that" loud. Since the loud is just when your processing, I assume it is drive related, and I don't think it is good.
I have one retail computer that is "noisy" (almost, but not quite "loud", ha, ha!) when I do certain operations. Worrisome.
It may, of course, be a fan that is not operating all the time or is set to variable speeds.
Yeh its hard to describe it, does sound similar to a fan. Don't want it to be hardware problem.
OK... if you are talking about your computer being loud, and not the DVD/BluRay you produce having too loud a sound volume, you might want to open your case and CAREFULLY vacuum everything, using a "long bristle" brush attachment to LIGHTLY brush everything to loosen the dust
What you are hearing is "most likely" your CPU fan kicking into high gear... encoding puts a large load on the CPU, and it's heat will rise a LOT, which the BIOS then compensates for by telling the fan to run faster
Do you have a stock fan, or a better aftermarket CPU fan?
Stock fan, looking at invoice now, manufacturer supplied cooler. Is it fairly easy to upgrade to a better fan or does it require replacing other parts as well.
** I ** think it is easy to replace a stock fan... but I built my own computer, so I know how everything was put together
I bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103057 for my Intel i7 930 CPU - which, of course, will most likely NOT work with your AMD
You just need to check hardware sites (I like Newegg) to find a cooler for your brand/model CPU
A CPU cooler is generally held on with 4 mounting screws... don't forget a good brand of thermal paste to go between the CPU and cooler... and clean the old paste off the CPU before you put the new cooler in place
My machine is still under warranty so I emailed the guys there and asked them whats best for my setup. Very helpful as they got me the right memory. Would be a big help having my pc quieter.
