Encore freezes always at the same point while building DVDs from a project
on Sep 6, 2017 at 3:05:56 pm

Hi everyone,
I want to build a double layer DVD (8.54 GB) from an Encore project which contains a timeline, a slideshow and two menus with both video and audio. I always select "Output: DVD disc" instead of "DVD folder" or "DVD image", and so I did with this project. The first time I tried to build my DVD (after checking it), Encore froze at a certain point while creating the slideshow. I thought the disc I was using was damaged and so I ejected it and threw it away. Today I've tried a second time, with a new DVD and (again) Encore froze at the same point, while creating the slideshow. I guess I have to get rid of this one too...

Well, at the moment I have only two DVDs left and I would not like to throw them away like the previous two. What should I do? Do you have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I've been using Adobe Encore for many years and have never even attempted a dual-layer burn because of all the horror stories I read on forums about difficulty in creating one successfully, plus the possible player compatibility issues.

How long is the video content - is it absolutely necessary to use dual-layer for this project?

Thanks

Hello Jeff, thank you for your answer. Yes, the project is 6.3 GB (and the video content itself is 87 minutes long) so a 4.7 GB DVD is unfortunately not enough.
I had already burnt other dual-layer DVDs before this one and never found any problem.
I was wondering if I should try selecting "DVD image" as output, rather than "DVD disc", and burn my DVD later on...

87 minutes will EASILY fit a 4.7GB DVD and still look good. Over the years creating DVDs of events, the majority of my DVDs have always been in the 2-hour range. So 1.5 hours is nothing 😉

All you need to do is lower the bitrate to about 6.3 for it to fit.

Thanks
