As I understand it, Avid only supports 2 GB AVI exports? And Encore 1.5 and earlier won't accept QuickTime reference files (Encore 2.0 supports QT reference files).

Try exporting to QT as a self-contained movie. Encore should accept that. If you have any trouble with that, export only the video as a self-contained MOV, and then the audio as AIFF.

It should accept them. Have you tried self-contained movies?

Self-contained is a QuickTime movie that does not reference other QT movies- it's a rendered movie file. You should have the option to export as self-contained movie from Avid.

I'm not familiar with their interface, so you'll have to ask on an Avid forum (there's got to be some here on Creative Cow).

Hi Rachel
try this
export your sequence as a Quicktime using the Avid Codecs as (Meridien or whatever you are using) Split you sequence up so that the files don't excced the 2gig limit. make sure that the PC that Encore is installed on also has the relevant codecs installed from Avid and then import the Qts into encore.
Should work
Let me know
Charlie

Some important notes:

Your AVID project cannot contain gaps used as filler. If you need black video, you must create it and insert it. You can do this from the source window.

In Encore versions 1.5 or earlier, your video and audio cannot be embedded together if the project is longer than something around 20 minutes or so. If it is, you must export video-only reference file first, then a seperate wave file. Encore 2.0 fixes this.

Otherwise, I have had no problem sending QT ref files into Encore 2.0, despite the length. I have gone as far as 2.5 hours.

Let me know if you want my QT ref export settings. Maybe something is different there. Also, what version of AVID are you running?

The advantage of a QuickTime Reference is that the exporting process is very fast and the file itself does not take up much space because it just points to already existing media.

I am not all that wild about the MPEG encoder that Encore uses natively, so I normally use TMPGEnc to create a .m2v file, and import that into Encore.

Rachel,

The AVI output of your AVID system must be set to Type 1. Type 2 AVIs on an NTFS drive can be much larger... I've just completed a 141-minute avi program without problems.

Another option would be to encode your MPEG2 files from within AVID (if it is an option).

I export a QT Reference and let Sorenson Squeeze compress to MPG2. Squeeze should come with Avid.
