Encore CS5 and CS4 are suddenly telling me "Error Encoding!" when I try to spit the project out to dvd.
There is no other message given. Is it because I'm missing codecs? If so, where can I get them at?
I'm using footage I edited with Premiere CS5, but I had to use the Export>Media Encoder function as CS5 Premiere no longer has the Export>Encore like previous versions did (and when I use the Adobe dynamic link>to Encore, my audio won't play)
I've been experiencing some weird stuff going on with it - the audio will play in Encore CS4, but the chapter markers aren't brought it....
I found (somewhere) that says Encore CS5 won't work on AMD boards - anyone verify this?
I use Vista, 64 bit, and have a really strong system. Do have AMD board, but never had any problems before....
If you are making a DVD and not a Blu-ray, then you need to create an MPEG2 DVD file out of Media Encoder, not an mpeg4.
Even though it shouldn't give an error and just re-encode your mpeg4 file as an mpeg2, you will just be losing quality and asking for trouble with Encore. Give it a file that it doesn't need to change (mpeg2 dvd), and you should be good to go.
Got it, thanks! I wasn't sure how to get it out of Premiere into Encore. In the past I always used the simple Export to Encore and it did its thing. With CS5 Premiere, Export to Encore is gone, there's just the "Adobe Dynamic Link>send to Encore" command and when I used that my audio wouldn't work in Encore. At that point, I didn't know what else to try to get it into Encore, so I used the Media Encoder...
I thought by now, with CS5, they'd have gotten rid of the bugs for the audio not playing!
Thanks again for the help, any other comments are much appreciated.
