What is the final destination for the video? DVD? Web? Blu-ray?
DVD. But, I'm not sure why that matters? I'm talking about the actual outputted .mpg file here being empty or corrupted. But, thanks for getting back to me! :)
Since the destination is DVD, don't waste the time or resources to encode at HDV frame sizes. It will just have to be encoded again so that it will fit the standard def DVD frame size. Re-transcoding will significantly reduce final quality.
720x480 with a PAR of 0.9
"Best Practices" would dictate elementary (separate) video and audio streams (.m2v and .wav). Avoid multiplexed .mpg files.
"Easiest Practices" would dictate exporting from Premiere as an .avi file and letting Encore handle the transcoding automatically.
Ahhh, yes, this is very, very good advice. I'm going to go with "Easiest" here. Let Encore do the dirty work.
But, still, why can't Premiere output the multiplexed file if it is in fact an option? I know that's not "Best Practices", but just curious why it would sit there and render for umpteen hours but give you a 0 byte file.
Thanks again! :)
Jeff you mean PAR of .91 right? It's not .9 anymore remember.
Can't forget that every version of Premiere AE and 'most other NLE's' had it wrong all these years.
Ummmm...yeah. That's what I meant. :)
i have been able to export to MPEG2 with proper muxing successfully. From what you are saying, it looks like AME is encoding but something is happening wrong at the time of multiplexing the output. Does your export fail with some error message ? Do you get some elementary .m2v(video) and .m2a(audio, depending on audio codec you used) file ?
And for your requirement purpose, you should use MPEG2DVD route if the "final destination" is a DVD. :)
