The conversion is going well, but will still have to re-do the menu if I choose to do it this way.
As per above post....did I not give enough info? It's not so much to do with my equipment as the program's capabilities. I did look through the past forum questions, but no post I stumbled onto seemed to help. Sorry if this question has been answered. Did not see it.
As to your topic, yes.
As to the content of your post, not enough info. See the link I gave you.
I've no experience burning HD media to DVD, but I do know that DVD can accept either a .9 Pixel Aspect ratio (4:3) or a 1.2 ratio (16:9). Your media uses a 1.3 PAR. It seems logical this may be the source of the error.
Given the touted ability of Encore to create BD, DVD and Flash output from a single project, I'd have thought the internal transcoding engine would overcome such things, but perhaps not. Maybe you need to do such downcovnersions outside of Encore first.
Certainly there is at least the improved quality of Dan's method to recommend such an action.
I recently edited a jazz concert shot in full HD with 2 Sony XDCAM EX3 cameras.
I did the authoring in Encore and successfully exported a blu-ray version and a dual-layer dvd version of the same project without a hitch.
The icing on the cake :the dvd looks gorgeous and so does the blu-ray, which comes as no surprise.
So it works as advertised.
I figured it out! All you have to do is take the hd project which has been linked to the Premiere sequence, click on the project name in the project pane and right click. Select "Interpret footage", then click into "conform to", choose "SD NTSC Widescreen (1.2121)". Then I created a disc image, which absolutely FLEW! By 1/2 hour later, I had a DL DVD with 2 hours worth of beautiful footage, no problems. Thanks for the trys at helping me, all those who did. Hopefully my trial-and-error and a couple of disc coasters will help someone else.
Investigative minds have always proven to be the best students with the most progress.
Life on the forums would be much duller if everybody showed that initiative.
By the way, to clarify the above instructions, this action is done in Encore.
Would you mind posting your solution and workflow onto the Encore forum? I'd suggest either the DVD Burning, or the BD Burning sub-forum. However, as it does span both, maybe into the general area, Encore Forum would be the best. Your work will help someone else.
