Authoring For DVD9 help!
on Jun 3, 2009 at 10:48:48 am

I have a 184 minute project that has to be authored for DVD9. I have been told that the replicator will accept both a burned DVD+R and two DVD5's one for each layer.

My system is Mac OS 10.5.7, 2x2.8 GHz Quad Intel Xeon, 8 GB RAM, FCP5, DVDSP4, now since switching to this Mac earlier this year I can no longer get the Compressor to work. I've been through all the threads and advice offered but still no joy. So I guess I had no choice but to use QT files in DVDSP.

I built all the menus imported the QT assets linkled all the chapters etc then I tested via simulator, made a list of changes that needed to be made to the video, closed DVDSP and went into FCP and made the changes.

Then when I opened DVDSP to my horror it's looking for the refernce files and won't open. All I want to do is open the file so I can replace the files with the new ones. How can I get around this? I've got a client chasing for the approval disc and I'm coming up against problem after problem!

Also any tips for getting the best I can from using QT files instead of the compressor would be appreciated.

Where are the original files? Have they been moved or deleted?

The QT files are in a folder on the same drive along with the rest of the project files when I try to relink the files I get a message that say the data doesn't match yet the file names are the same?

Hard to say but I suspect something was changed or moved. You should try recreating a part of the project and see what happens.
