From what I understand about the conforming process, Premiere Pro uses conforming in order to play back your media more efficiently. I was surprised today to see that after I had sent out a sequence from Premiere to Encore, Encore is conforming all clips before the encoding process? Why does this happen in Encore?
My project was bringing in all clips that I had shot on a 7D (h.264 clips). My timeline is about 1 hr and 30 mins. From there I am exporting out to DVD MPEG2.
Does Encore actually say that it is "Conforming" or maybe you are referring to "Transcoding"? The latter meaning "encoding video to MPEG-2 and audio to AC-3 Dolby". I've never seen Conforming in Encore
It said conforming just like it usually does in Premiere. I'm starting to think that if this is an automatic process Premiere does when you import footage, and it had not completed conforming in Premiere, then it will conform everything else in Encore.
