Starting this ? in Pr forum rather than Encore as that is where the project started.
Background: Started this project with older computer system and Premiere Elements 7. Forum responses pointed me to think of upgrading to Pr Pro to do multi cam with differing source types.... I upgraded to Pr CS4..built a new computer system to handle it...(aside) had incredibly difficult time troubleshooting what was a bad memory module. Project getting later and later by months. So onto problem at hand.
New system: As this is brand new all drivers are updated etc.
Premiere Pro CS4 ver. 4.2 creative suite includes Encore etc.
Windows 7 Premium Home 64 (upgraded from Vista Home Prem 64)
Mobo: EVGA P55 SLI
processor: I7 860
GPU's: GTX 260's (two in SLI)
3 HD: 1=TB, 2x=750GB each 2.5TB total
Currently only 2 GB Ram (original 4GB, failed 2 GB replacement on the way)
LG Blu Ray burner
DVD/CD (2nd optical drive)
project: two camera sources. Canon GL2 (DV), Canon HF S100 (HDV).
Context is concert material, so two synced cameras, one master audio track.
I'm performing a small test project (sequence is ~20 minutes) to learn all the steps needed to complete final.
project settings chosen: NTSC DV 48 widescreen, as final output will be DVD
I successfully synced the two camera source clips, again one is AVCHD (.MTS) the other DV (.avi).
created nested sequence, enabled MultiCam, edited within MultiCam monitor! Yea, so far so good.
Now I have this Multi Cam sequence to send to DVD. So, after watching tutorials on Premiere and Encore, I do this in Pr...
File...Abode Dynamic Link..Send to Encore.
In Encore, I add a basic menu with proper links etc. tests fine...looks good...all set. Go to Build w/ DVD in burner, starts fine, opens window for encoding, gets a ways (20-30 minutes) then pop up error window that says "Encode Failed", main window underneath says,
"Build Progess Transcoding...Failed"
Tried to Write same test sequence to DVD Image on HD, same result, +/- 20 minutes and "Encode Failed".
Read other forum threads for clues. Someone suggested to another to Export the sequence from Pr Pro as avi file. Then bring this into Encore as asset and burn DVD.
I tried to Export Project as avi using this same MultiCam edited sequence from Pr Pro.
This opens the Adobe Media Encoder. from there I get a different error...
"ImporterProcessServer.exe has stopped working"
This error appears after 6:59, also states 8:13:31 remaining.
I have ordered more RAM. Plus I will get the replacement 2GB module soon. My feeling is that the current memory in my system is lacking, but not what is causing these problems. Though I do not know if that is true.
Obviously, I'm a beginner at this, just learning PrPro from limited PrElements experience and online tutorials and any helps I can find. I was getting excited as I have actually accomplished the steps I'll need to complete this project. But it has sort of become like the Exodus from Egypt and I don't wish to spend 40 years wondering in the desert before reaching the promised land. Please help me cross over the Jordan!
