    Burning a Dvd


      Hello, when I try to burn a dvd or create a movie to a file, a "Indexing" screen appears and nothing happens. Thanks in advance...Jim

          Welcome to the forum.


          First, I would take a look at this article, as it asks for some important information: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/459220?tstart=0


          Also, along with that information, please let us know exactly which steps you are taking, to either Burn to Disc (the DVD), or when you go to Export/Share/Publish the Timeline.


          Good luck,

              Thank you for that info.


              1. First, what are the pixel x pixel sizes of the JPEG Still Images?
              2. It appears that you are mixing multiple FPS with your Video Assets. Is that correct?
              3. What is the CODEC in the AVI file(s)?


              Good luck,
