Issue: No tool seems to convert the
Tina avi-file in the right way.
My goal is to soon cool down and burn
that avi to a DVD and watch it
smoothly on the telly. Yes, the
Philips DVP5500S-player deals with
MPEG2, MPEG1 and MPEG4. The footage is
done in real 16:3 with a 3CCD cam.
Plan A is to use Adobe Premiere CS3
(AP) and export Tina to Adobe Encore
(EN) for rendering/conversion and
DVD-burning. There are no menus in
the edited film. During the build
process EN gives up and leaves a PGC
error message well known and mentioned
in several posts in Adobe´s forums.
Plan B must be to convert one or two
files and burn them to a dvd disk.
Well, AP/EN produces two files
Tina.M2V (mpeg)560 MB and Tina.WAV 215
MB. Question 1: Can those two files be
of any help in achieving my goal?
In AP I export Tina as Movie with DV
PAL compressor, Microsoft DV AVI, Bit
Depth: Using project setting, Optimize
Stills, Uncompressed audio.
After rendering this brought forth
19:36 minutes and 3,68 GB Tina.AVI,
1536 kbit/sec, compression MC_DVD,
video sampling 24 bits. I simply
burned this file to a 4,7 GB DVD,
naively hoping it should play, but it
did not. Question 2: Why?
During the last week I have tested
Tina.AVI together with more than a
dussin AVI to DVD tools, Avi2DvD, AVS,
Cucusoft, Debut, DVD Flick, DVDforger,
FormatFActory, X2DVD, Win AVI, you name
The worst result is when nothing at
all happens when I insert the disk,
not even a loading sign appears on the
t eve screen. The best is with WinAVI
when Tina loads and starts playing but
slows down and freezes after 20
I have also (in AP) exported Tina to
Adobe Media Encoder using those
