DVD player jumps beyond Chapter 1
on Nov 28, 2010 at 1:03:37 am


I have a simple play button on them main menu. The play button is linked to a 3 minute short film time line. It has a Chapter 1 point set at 00:00:00:00. Now when I preview it in Encore, it plays from the TC 00:00:00:00 that's when the film title starts. Everything looks just fine. Now when I play the finished DVD in my LG Blu-Ray DVD player, it starts almost 4 seconds into the title which cuts off the title animation by half. This is really annoying. My DVD is a plain DVD, not a Blu-ray.

Can anyone help?

this could happen because of 2 reasons:

1.) the player
some players have a poor sync for the A/V-playback, so it needs a bit of time to sync the title that should be played.

maybe it´s an older player as well, it would need a bit longer, because the power of the laser will decrease as well.

2.) GOP
it is a good idea to have at least 1GOP black at the start of the film, not to start with the REAL picture at the very beginning of your track.

a GOP can be 12frames or a bit more depending on if you are PAL or NTSC.
