    General Error in Encore (Preview & Build)

    Gammelman Level 1



      after looking through the forum, I can see a trail of previous discussions on the "General Error" issue with Encore, but none of the offered solutions seems to apply in my case, so here's another post on the topic;


      I'm doing some *very* simple editing in PP CS4 (avi input), and exporting to Encore CS4 to make a DVD.

           - 1:16 hours avi file, 17 encore chapter markers, a template menu (entertainment) with one layer edited, 2 submenus

           - simple navigation between the main menu and submenus


      The first preview works fine, but trying a second preview throws a "General Error".


      Trying to build a DVD image gives a "General Error" halfway through.



      Any suggestions/advice?
