Hi all. Thanks in advance for answering this. I am on a tight deadline and am perplexed with this issue. I have authored DVDs before. I have a project where the simulator is running perfectly (and I know we cant assume the simulator tell the truth)...however, when I put the DVD, and it properly goes to the home pages, when I try to click on a link that would take me to a feature cut, or another link that will take me to a scene selection, and a 3rd, hidden easter egg link, instead of going to the correct menus as it did in the simulator, it simply takes me back to the main menu (2 other link on the top menu works fine). I have checked all button, all programming and all looks fine.
I have also looked all over my system for where my prefs are, as I heard trashing prefs help (gone into library, though I cant find the .plist prefs for the life of me). ALso, the DVD is dual layer and it is at 8.4 on the meter. Not sure if that is something to be concerned about.
Need help asap please! Will buy u a beer! Thanks, Richard
The project is pretty sizable. I just moved all the assets and started a new SAVE AS file on another HD and this problem still is happening. So weird! A DVD I burned yesterday works fine. Simulator is perfect. I dont get it! And I still can find my prefs so I can trash. I went to libray, search this,
Nothing appearing on my computer. So weird this problem.
Actually, all....the problem continued on another Mac. However, we heard that, if the file is close to the edge (8.4 gb on an 8.5), like a hard drive on mac running out of memory, the DVD authoring process can be funky if too full.
So, we went in and removed a big file that we ultimately didn't need (or, we repointed to another file that did the job). Taking this file off brought us down to 6.8 gb....and...guess what....ALL WORKED FINE! We burned a master! I AM SO HAPPY!
BTW, it's best to use another program like Apple DVD to test your TS FILEs first after you build and see if you cured the problem, vs burning many dvds...if the build works, then, pop in the dvd, and CHOOSE the TS files, then format, and, MAGIC!
