Sorry Charles for your troubles and in fact I don't have an answer for you. I have had no problems creating DVDs using dynamic link to Encore from PP.
I just did two different DVDs yesterday that were well over an hour in length. I thought for sure going the dynamic link route would be troublesome but it worked.
Have you tried that approach?
I'll give the Dynamic link route a shot next time.
I'm having major problems with Media Encoder CS4.
When I try to create an AVI file (for example) from a section of my Premiere Pro CS4 timeline, the encoder opens, takes forever to load the project, and then, after I hit start queue button, it again takes forever to load the project in the small window at the bottom of the display.
Finally the "waiting" message in the queue list turns to an orange exclamation mark with the message that encoder "could not read from the source. PLease check if it has been moved or deleted." Which of course it has not been. THis happens even if I preview the section in advance in Premiere. material.
If at any point I hit the settings button it simply reloads the project
Can you try the following?
- Open the directory "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\dynamiclink" in one explorer window.
- Open the installation directory to Premiere in another explorer window.
- Right click on the Premiere executable and choose "Create Shortcut"
- Copy this shortcut and place it in the "dynamiclink" explorer window.
- Rename the shortcut to "Premiere" instead of "Shortcut to Adobe Premiere Pro.exe"
Close all apps and try the export again. Does it work after this?
Thanks very much, Jagan, that's fixed it that problem.
I now have come across another problem which I have not encountered before.
I'm building a DVD based around a long film - 1 hour 35' - and there's a disc capacity issue.
Check project shows the size at 4.71GB, but when I go into EDit Quality Presets - export settings etc - it shows 2.862GB
How can I squeeze it down to fit?
Try tweaking the bitrate settings. That should affect the output file size.
Sure, that brings down the 2.862GB in export settings, but it doesn't affect the 4.71GB in project settings - that's the problem - I don't understand why it's showing 4.71 in the first place when the file size in export settings shows much smaller.
You should probably ask Encore questions in the Encore forum.
OK, have done so
Thanks Hunt, I already asked the question there
I had to reply and say thanks. I did exactly what you said and it WORKED you have saved my school media project and now i'll pass. so thank you so much.
I am having the same problem and tried what you said but no change...the only way I can export is if I export a sequence. What is the difference and should I be worried?
