Let me start off by saying that I'm fairly new to Encore (migrating from DVD Studio Pro), so I understand how to build a DVD, but I don't understand all the settings and things with this particular software.
So far I've been able to build a DVD project with several menus, a bunch of :30 second spots, etc. I only have still menus, and the source material for my videos is a mix of Full Frame Microsoft AVI's, and uncompressed Quicktime Movies. When I preview the disc, it works just fine. When I build it and burn it to a disc, the audio is trashed. It gets a lot of loud pops and scratches, and really takes away from the video. When I go back to my original video files, they play fine, no problems. So clearly the problem is with transcoding/burning/etc.
I've used the default settings in Encore to make the disc. I think that I either need to go back and re-export all my source material to some other format (not sure which), or I need to change my transcode settings. Any ideas?
Other things to note: I'm also using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 (actually everything is CS3), and all of the source material is DV 720 X 480 standard def video. Everything was edited/exported in Premiere. And I'm on Windows XP Pro, version 2, if that helps.
