I'm new to Encore and i'm just about to complete a project which involves burning some videos to DVD & Blu-Ray. I have burnt 5 DVD's and everything works perfect, but unfortunately now I am trying to burn the Blu-Rays and they have major issues. When I come to play the Blu-Ray on my computer, first of all they won't work with VLC (newest version) and the video seems to be jerking slightly. I have also noticed when the video thumbnails appear, the video and audio freezes (only time the audio is effected.) Oh and i'm not sure if this is relevant but the first two discs I burnt the video started playing in my PC about 30 seconds into one of the videos, completely skipping out the intro video, menu and part of said video.
My project consists of:
Intro animation/motion menu exported from AE
Menu file exported from PS
Four videos from FCP, all 1920x1080. One is a "Current Settings" .mov export from a ProRes 422 HQ timeline and the others were this but have been compressed to an MP4 in Handbrake.
The menu system has video thumbnails and all of the above videos are linked well.
The loop point has been set at 18 seconds which is when the intro animation finishes and the video menu has fully faded in.
Each video has an end point which brings them back to this loop point.
As mentioned, this worked absolutely perfect with my DVD's but with the Blu-Rays it's completely messed up. The only difference between the two are the Blu-Ray project settings, the video transcode settings set by Encore and I have imported the "Current Settings" .mov from FCP for one video and not the compressed Handbrake file. I have done the "Check Project" and nothing comes back.
I am using the following equipment:
"LG Super Multi Blue" Blu-Ray burner.
TDK BD-R 25GB 1-4x Write Speed discs
Dell XPS 8700s Blu-Ray player for playback with VLC (won't open:
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///D:\'. Check the log for details.
& CyberLink PowerDVD 12 which does work but the above issues are noticed.
Please if somebody could give me some suggestions to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. I am going away for a week on Monday and need to have these burnt and sent out to the clients before I do.
