DualLayer - This disc requires a layer break
on Mar 23, 2015 at 7:53:41 pm

Hello everyone, I've been using Adobe Encore for the past few months without any issues. But today I decided to create Dual Layer Project for my client. Usually I would be authoring BluRay Images. But today it's something different; Dual Layer.

I was hoping it would be the same procedure but looks like it has proven to be wrong.

Not sure why but after all media assets have been encoded/transcoded and when the final part needs to take place; Burning ISO image I receive an error message: "DualLayer - This disc requires a layer break". It has been set both at "Automatic" & "Manual" yet still the same error message is displayed.

I'm using Adobe Encore CS6.

Can someone please share some light as it's really frustrating.

Thank you.

Farhan Ali

An ISO-file can not hold any information about the physical place of a layer break.

I'm not familar with Encore.
Sorry!

I didn't expect that you get that error on building stage.
I was thinking you are faced of it when you try to burn the disk.

We used to have such problems with Encore's handling of layer breaks, that we started using ImgBurn to make them.

That is good advice for already compiled images or VIDEO_TS folders!

@Steve Brame thanks for you're response, sorry to say but I already found the thread you posted before I created this thread. Yes ImgBurn will ONLY do the job when the project files have already been compiled into an image format or structured in VIDEO_TS folders as mentioned by Andreas Gumm

Damn it's annoying when I'm soooooo close of completing the project but little hurdle remains. ;(

Do you have any idea where the layer break is actually placed?
In more advanced authoring tools you have to take care of some things:
If OTP (Opposite Track Path) is set, the first layer (layer 0) MUST be larger than the second one (layer 1)!
Please check that the assets do not run out of legal size, depending on layer break position.

I haven't set any layer breaks myself nor do I know how to apply layer breaks.
Does the layer break depend on the project duration? What should I look out for to apply layer break?

I apologize if you have already seen this, but since you stated that you didn't know how to add a layer break, I suspect that you haven't. Scroll down the page to the section titled - 'Specify a layer break for dual-layer DVDs'.

https://helpx.adobe.com/encore/using/building-finished-project.html

If possible, you might want to try to add the layer break at a logical break in the video - such as in the middle of a fade to black or at a hard scene change. Sometimes we've experienced a slight jump in the video as the player switches to the 2nd layer at the break, and if this occurs during a black area, it's not as noticeable.

Hello Steve Brame thank you very much for reply, I had look on the website you mentioned and I tried both "Manual" * "Automatic" options for applying layer break, unfortunately it wouldn't work and displayed the same error message.

How would I physically apply "Layer Break" onto my project? Sorry for asking noob question just that it's a completely new area for me.

Have you seen this thread?

https://forums.adobe.com/thread/400065

If so and it hasn't helped your situation, then maybe you should contact Adobe Support. - however, the Staff person in that thread wasn't much help.
