Hi Leo,

I kinda sorta resolved the problem. But I had change my workflow a little bit. When I was having this problem, I was dynamic linking sequences from Premiere Pro into Encore. The footage was 1080p high definition footage, and I was burning a standard resolution DVD. I read somewhere that sometimes changing resolution like that can cause transcoding issues, including making Encore freeze. You may or may not be doing the same thing, but either way, here are the 2 options I found: I could recreate the project in a Premiere Pro timeline that was the same resolution as the DVD I was burning (not really an option, since it was a very complex project), or I could export my footage from Premiere Pro first and then link to those files from Encore. I chose this method. Premiere has an export codec for DVD's, so I used that. The resulting files were the same resolution has the final DVD, so in the end, Encore didn't do any of the resizing on it's own. The result? Encore burned the DVD very quickly and didn't freeze. Basically, through dynamic linking a high resolution project from Premiere, Encore was being forced to do a lot of transcoding that Premiere Pro does better. This method allows Premiere to take the strain off of Encore by exporting your files out first and then linking to those in Encore.

Of course, if you were not using Dynamic Link at all, then this workflow wouldn't be a solution for you. But if you are, then hopefully this will help solve your problem. Good luck on your project.
