I am totally new to Encore and have CS4. I have a good tutorial and made a video DVD over the last few days. I know I have to render to make it run smoothly, both audio and video. However the 2 places you can ask for rendering are not activated. The one in the file menu is gray, not black and I cant click on it. The one in "preview here) is not activated either. Both my audio and my video needs rendering. Can anyone tell me what I have to do to make them active?
No, I havent rendered anything yet because I have not been able to get to the render places when they are active. I tried rendering a timeline with video clips and another timeline with motion and nothing will turn rendering on. I wondered if I had a setting somewhere else in the program that was preventing rendering from being active. I am brand new to this program and this is my first project.
Thanks for responding. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
ps: I can do preview from here ok, but the rendering in that screen is inactive.
Oh, I didnt know that I could only render motion menues and slideshows. Thank you. My timeline of video clips was not running smoothly and the audio portion was cutting in and out, so thats why I was trying to render it. I'll just burn a copy and see if it is ok on the DVD.
I appreciate your help very much. I bought a video tutorial and went all the way throuth it, but you can't learn everything that way. It's nice of you to help me out.
It's mp3. The video is from a phone video recorder. I was previewing it tonight and the video stops on the first picture and the audio keeps going but still cuts in and out. I think I'm over my head here.
