I've built a Blu-ray session in Encore CS4 (latest version) on a Mac running Tiger 10.4.11. Everything previews fine, but it crashes while rendering the motion menus after 20 minutes with the following message: "Photoshop File Error-1."
I've checked and re-checked all of my buttons and MPEG2 files and they seem to be fine (no different then all of the other Blu-ray sessions I've authoring in Encore). I don't have too many menus and the total file size for the session is under 5GB. I've tried both PNG and PSD button files, re-loading Encore and the update, swapped the system RAM, built and re-built the session on different drives (both internal and external), all to no avail.
Has anyone ever experienced this problem on a Mac???? Please help as this has become quite maddening and I'm in real danger of missing a deadline.
I feel that the MAC CS4 Encore is one of the crappiest programs I have ever used. I have failure more than not. I waste so much time trying to BUILD a DVD. I am so frustrated. I feel that "crapware" is the real categorie CS4 Encore fits into. I wonder if anyone at Adobe tries using it on a MAC OSX creating a reasonable BUILD!!! I bet not!
