Is the stuttering only in the timelines? Or moving from/to menus?
Are the menus operating correctly?
It might help if you post a screenshot of your flowchart.
More specifics re your source file, PR sequence settings, export settings.
I assume all files are coming into Encore as "do not transcode." True?
The stuttering used to be in the menus also, but that was when I was using dynamic link.
The stuttering stopped in the menus after I used media encoder
But now the timeline skips or it will just freeze when you skip to the next chapter. But only on certain machines
I filmed the video in 1080p- 24fps. I encoded the file as an h.26 blu ray file at 720p- 24fps. VBR pass 2. Target bit rate of 25 mbps, max 28. I have tried PCM audio and Dolby digital.
The only thing I have not tried yet is burning an mpeg file instead of h.26. Not sure if that will help.
Yes, it would help to know if you are also having the same problem with mpeg.

Just curious: why 720?
Edit: Sorry; missed this. What version of Encore?
This is encore cs6
I brought it down the 720p because i shot with a panasonic hmc150 and it has been recomened that filming at 1080 and then compressing to 720 yeilds a better picture. (honesetly i can't tell the difference and neither can my client, but it does save some encoding time.)
I have even tried using a different brand of discs
I recommend using only Falcon Pro blanks for both DVDs and BDs, along with a Sony/NEC (Optiarc) burner for the broadest player compatibility.
It appears that creating the disc in mpeg2 blu ray has solved my issue. The Ps3 is reading it very smoothly and quickly no problems anymore!

Interesting. To try to sort it further, try it, changing your default transcode to MPEG2, but using H264 for assets you transcode.
