I'm looking for the answer to why Encore adds 12 frames to each asset added to a project. I'm building a demo television hour and the extra frames create longer black segments between elements in the hour. Also it seems to leave a ghost of the last video. Any thoughts?

hi wes,
this is happening if you are using AC-3 with adobe encore. if you replace it with PCM audio (and set the project-transcoding-settings to PCM), you´ll get rid of this black frames.

blame adobe - that´s a stupid idea!

cheers

So what you're saying is that if I am making a 5.1 surround sound DVD using ac3 tracks in Adobe Encore, my repeating video menu background will have 12 frames of black between the repeats? Funny, that's exactly what is happening to me! You suggest switching to PCM audio, but not only does that mean a much larger file size, it also means my feature will be in STEREO - NOT 5.1! Is there not a way to have a 5.1 surround sound audio track and a menu with a video background that repeats without 12x of black? I'd hate to have to switch to a static background for my menu as that really diminishes the quality of the program - kind of like showing a slide show instead of a movie.

phil,
I haven´t tested this with DVD but we have tested this with encore-created blu-ray disc.

if you would like to create a DVD that wont have 12frames black at the end of your looping menu or would like to use AC3 5.1-audio you should look for another dvd-authoring-solution.

DVD Studio would be your choice on mac, or any other professional DVD-solution on PC.

sorry - no other choice.

cheers

Thanks for the unfortunate advice. I may have a work around. I'm thinking about looping the video background for a minute or so in Premiere and exporting that to mpeg2 and wav. Then taking that into Encore. Anybody who leaves the menu on for over a minute deserves to see 12 frames of black =;)

phil,
I´m just curiouse, what will happen if you set the looping-point 12 frames earlier?

does that make any difference?

cheers
