hello, to get you going you probably want to post back with:
which adobe version you are using
the part i can help with is you should NOT mux together audio and video
when exporting the mpeg2-dvd: you should use the mpeg2-dvd preset
and render out separare audio file and video file
you will need to load them separately into Encore on the timeline
(i'm not sure if this will fix the shortened audio, but other more wiser users
will posit this as a step in the right direction)
one thing to try would be to load the project into AME
set up the separate files to be encoded via the mpeg2dvd preset
tweak if necessary
AND THEN select the last 5 minutes of your timeline to export
to see if the shortened audio is fixed
(i learned to export small pieces of projects checking for quality
while doing a 85 minute timeline from 1920x1080 to mpeg2 recently)
hope this gets you started, j
Thanks John & tfi for clearing up the audio/video issue!
I will try that now - I am confident your advise works!
As far as my system is concerned: Pretty fast i7 with multiple disks, Software is Creative Cloud Subscription (so all should be up-to-date).
Maybe I don't get this whole Premiere / After Effects combo. I am a PPro advanced user, but an absolute AE noob
So: I have a sequence in PPro. It has all kinds of transition effects in there, such as the "roll away" page peel.
When I replace the sequence with an AE comp, I lose my transitions. In AE it shows all of the effects, such as 'roll away' between the clips, but they all have 0 duration.
AE cuts from one clip to another without the transition.
I hope I don't have to render my three videos out to lossless WMF or something and then put them in AE. In total, I have 6 disks with 90 chapters to go. That would be 270 exports before I can even begin working in AE...
Again, thanks guys! And more help is even more appreciated
In the meantime I found the very unsatisfying answer to my first problem:
Transitions in PPro are not available in AE - except for the cross disolve...
That is very sad but can't be helped it seems. Worst case I will go to cross dissolve, but that is not really what I need.
Does anyone know whether there are 3rd party transitions that work both in PPro and AE? I understand that the model those two programs use are very different, I am just trying to find a solution that will avoid me having to export 270 lossless sequences just to be able to keep my precious transitions
Thanks again for all your help!
at this point i suggest you create a thread in the AE forum as well
asking for help
here is some dated 2009 info re: AE and PPRO
is it possible to eliminate AE from the equation by doing your picture in picture in premiere
by resizing the videos?
this way you can keep your transitions....
AE does its thing.
What exactly is it's 'thing' in this case? Why are you sending everything to AE?
