Hmm. Can't seem to pinpoint the issue. Might try burning it on CS5 instead.
What a nightmare!! Stupid dealines...
What bitrates are you using? For both video and audio. Note that this is a total bitrate error.
Some users have solved these sorts of issues by reducing the bitrate.
I think my first route will be to reencode everything with the H.264 Bluray preset at a lower bitrate. Perhaps 25Mbps? Should I switch to VBR instead of CBR?
If that doesn't work I will try the MPEG-2 Bluray preset instead.
Sound like a good plan?
What is your audio in Encore? Does it stay PCM, or transcoding to ac3.
The problem with 35Mbps as a rate, is that there is relatively little extra room once you add the audio rate. While the PR/AME export should not allow any peaks, there has been some suggestion that peaks may be at issue in some of these errors.
I agree with trying to reduce it, but I would make a modest drop - say 32 or 30 - before I drop all the way to 25.
I don't think VBR helps here.
I don't fully understand either of your questions, but I am sure I can provide an answer that you will understand so here goes.
My audio files in Encore are actually wav files, but in my the root project folder they are ac3. Is ac3 an audio codec or something? I don't understand this. I guess they are session files, whatever that is... And why does this matter?
And what do you mean that Premiere and Adobe Media Encoder should not allow any peaks. Do you mean bit rate peaks?
And my only worry with making a modest drop in the bit rate is the fact that I have to render out almost 20 files before I can test out my Bluray burn again. This obviously takes some time to do and if it ends up not working it can be quite frustrating.
Thanks again for all of the help Stan. Hopefully I can fix it by just adjusting the bit rate.
By root folder, if you mean that in the transcodes folder the audio files have been transcoded to ac3, that means your Encore project audio is set to dolby. The audio files use much lower datarate than if you left them as wav. So that is not an issue.
Yes, bitrate peaks.
I understand about the time to transcode. If 25 works, and you don't like the quality, you could decide whether to try again somewhat higher.
Should I just set my audio files to Dolby instead of PCM in my export from Premiere?
Scan further to the right. You are looking at the DVD transcode status, not bluray.
That's a sight for sore eyes.
And yeah thanks Stan I noticed the Bluray Transcode Status column immediately after I posted that question. Haha.
So I reencoded all of my sequences at CBR 25Mbps and I was able to build 2 Bluray Disc Images. Tomorrow I am going to run out and buy some blank BD-Rs and see if I can make it work and check it out on a Bluray player. I will post a follow up. Thanks again Stan.
I'm with this problem, I can not solve!
Anyone have a step by step there?
Since the export premiere
Rule of thumb: reduce the bitrate.
What bitrates are you using? What kind of files? What total length of videos?
Then I exported it's first premiere as usual, Bluray H264, 23fps
VBR 1 pass, is a marriage and is 55 min all.
Soon after I exported using CBR 25, did not work out too!
However I used the bluray MPG, and exported it, .. did the authoring in Encore, and it worked! But always used the H264 and this had never happened
Glad you found a way to get it to work.
Some versions of the various programs (PR/AME/EN) had issues with some options. And this "bitrate too high" error made it difficult to sort out.
