I am trying to make a DVD from a FCP project.
I am working with FCP 6 and Snow Leopard.
The project was shot in HD.
Previously, when I was working in Leopard,my work flow was the same and I was able to make DVDs.
Now DVD Studio Pro tells me I have successfully burned the disc, but it will not play.
Can anyone help?
This is my process:
My sequence settings in FCP match the format of the original clips. In this case they are 1280 x 720 HDTV (16:9)
Pixel Aspect Ratio - Square
Field Dominance - None
Quicktime Video Settings - XDCAM EX 720p30
I export the sequence using compressor. I have tried using various Apple DVD settings: DVD Best Quality (various durations) and DVD: Fastest Encode (various durations).
I import my assets into DVD STUDIO Pro.
They are AC3 Audio and MPEG-2 Video.
I drag them to the timeline.
I chose First Play from the Track folder.
All looks fine when I simulate the sequence.
I burn the Disc. It is "successful." But, the DVD will not play in a any computer other than mine nor in a stand alone DVD player.
Like everyone else that asked this question, you have made a HD DVD, you have to reauthor the project as a SD DVD. Even if you assets have been downconverted to SD if you choose (by choice or accident) HD DVD it will only play in an Intel Mac or the discontinued HD DVD players.
