Just open EN and your EN project.
Tried that. I have both Pr and En open. I moved markers around in Pr, then tabbed over to En and right-clicked on the timeline. The "Update markers from source" was greyed out.
So, does anyone else have an idea to get me going?
I would assume the "Update markers . . ." selection wouldn't be grey if the link were established.
Did you do any Transcoding of your Project in En? If so, you will want to Clean Media Cache, as En will use those existing Media Cache files, and updating will not take place.
Good luck, and hope that helps,
Sorry, I'm new at this. What is transcoding? I did build a DVD.
In any case I went to Edit\Preferences\Media\Media Cache and pressed Clean Database.
Right clicking on the timeline and "Update Markers..." is still grey.
Any other ideas? :-)
Sorry, Transcoding is the process of encoding your material to MPEG-2 for authoring to a DVD-Video. It can take place in your NLE (Non Linear Editor), where you would Export to a DVD-compliant MPEG-2, in a stand-alone MPEG-2 encoding program, or in Encore, if you have Imported, say a DV-AVI. In your case, with ADL (Adobe Dynamic Link), you have basically skipped this step - UNTIL you Build your DVD. Then, the linked files are Transcoded, and the Media Cache now references those.
Hope that this helps,
Thanks. Learning more every day.
Unfortunately, it didn't solve my current problem. :-)
I couldn't find any documentation that refers to dynamic linking, except for setting it up initially. Do you know of anything that talks about linking wrt an existing project?
Jeff Bellune has many replies on ADL in the Encore Forum. He's pretty much our resident guru, since he did write the book on Encore.
I'd post there, and also do a Search of that forum for Dynamic Link and then filter on People, putting in Jeff Bellune. Likely, one could write a good book on Dynamic Link, just from his replies.
