My own view is that exporting out of PP is the better option over Dynamic Link anyway, so if that works...
I tried importing that same "self-contained" clip as a new sequence and then trying to use Dynamic Link to burn that but same non read result. Part of my problem is I have only learned one way so far to use my internal Bluray player / burner and that was with Dynamic Link when my tutor was here a couple weeks ago, after having read that here. And was successful. I don't know how else to do it. Are there any good links you or anyone might be able to direct me to that detail other ways?
I kind of need to know how to be able to in fact use 1080 60P clips occasionlly in a more normal kind of edit on a 1080i time line, as well as this special all 1080 60P situation on the lake as mentioned, and be able to ultimately come up with a high quality bluray copy.
If you need to learn how to use Encore, start with the Help file. Go in sequence, don't skip around. Try each new thing as you learn it. Look up any words you don't fully understand.
1080p/60 won't go onto Blu-ray. At 1080, your options are 30i and 24p.
Thank you. OK. But where in my first post did I say I was trying to put 1080 60P onto Bluray? I know that is not a supported format. I said that only my clips were that. The project and sequence settings are 1080i 29.97 upper 1st. Just like the successful burns I was able to do in CS5.5. The difference is the cameras for my first HD edit and successfully delivered Bluray from the Dynamic Link function were capturing at 1080i as well. But I shot this footage on the lake a year ago at 60P. Premiere CS6 I have read described in a good way as "The Honey Badger" of time lines. Plays everything. I assume it is also supposed to transcode the 60P to interlaced 1080 on the exports or the burns if that is what my settings are.
That said, I was searching on this topic earlier today and came across somewhere else (no idea where) that someone else was complaining that Premiere 6.0 was not burning properly through Encore with the Dynamic Link function.
So just now I tried an experiment since I still have 5.5 in my applications. I started a new project in 5.5 and for the sequence I imported the self contained 1080i movie I was able to export from PP 6.0. Then I did the Dynamic Link > Encore and tried the same burn. Bingo! It worked! Something is broken with that function in 6.0 because 5.5 burned it fine through the Dynamic Link process. When I tried importing that same self contained 1080i clip back into 6.0 earlier from where it had been exported and burning it with the Dynamic Link process that would not work either. I see there is now a 6.0.2 so will update and try again later.
It was interesting to watch the activity monitor with both versions during a burn. With 5.5 my 6 cores (3.46ghz) on the Mac Pro were clipping along at 45-55% utilization, and memory was 20-23gb being utilized out of the 48gb. 6.0 must really be optimized with the Mercury engine because the CPU utilization was up to 88-90% for the burn as well as the same 20-23gb of memory.
NOPE.....no luck after updating the software. Tried both the time line and the self contained movie clip in the updated CS6.0.2 for Mac through Dynamic Link > Encore. Both scenarios when looking at the Disc Utility for the Bluray -R discs each time after done, said the burns were "unsupported".
So I guess I will ask of anyone else happening to read this thread who has Premiere CS6......Has anyone been able to use the Dynamic Link function > Encore and successfully burn a Bluray? Or DVD?
I have used it successfully.
But I still think it's better if you don't, and go the export method out of PP.
I never use Dynamic Link... after reading several other problem reports (and now your report)
Export an appropriate file out of PPro, start Encore and import that file (actually, should be 2 files, video and audio) and do your authoring
