    Premiere and Encore errors. Picture/transition flicker. & Encore errors

    creazer Level 1

      I'm using Premiere Pro CS4

      When I go to build a project using Adobe Encore CS4, I get this error message:

      All I'm doing is, is importing my mpeg which I created using CS4 and I'm building direct to DVD. Also when I put the mpeg file on the Encore timeline, it has an unusually long audio clip. Even though the sound finishes at 3 minutes, the clip on the timeline will show that its almost an hour long. (see below)

      2. I am also exporting avi files from my CS4 premiere. When I view them both on the computer monitor and Tv screen the picture flickers. Especially when I'm using a transition, it's most obvious then. Wether its a fade or the push transition, the picture flickers obviously.

      A: I'm filming in SD, editing in Premiere and then output to DVD.  Once editing is complete, I go to export > Adobe media encoder, then export to mpeg.When I view the video on the computer screen, it's quite obvious to me the picture highlights flicker. It's extremely obvious when I'm using transitions. e.g. Push transition with fast blur effect. Even a simple cross fade and the picture makes an obvious jitter back and forth. When I view the shots on DVD on a normal TV, same thing. The problems are the same.

      Q16: Post details of trouble shooting  you have already done to avoid 'did that' responses to questions people ask when trying to help.

      A:             - I film using a Canon XHa1 and my filming settings are: DVPAL 16 x 9 50i

                      - Spoke with Adobe and they asked me to download Divx drivers. Which I did, and it's made no difference.
