There is probably an obvious solution to this problem (but i still can't work it out for myself!) When i have completed a project in Encore and have exported it to DVD the soundtrack to my movies end up with many pops/clicks on them that are not present on the movies before they were imported into Encore from Premiere or indeed when i am previewing the project in Encore itself. The problem appears to be occuring during the rendering to DVD process in Encore. As far as i can tell the movie is in the required MPEG 2 format required for DVD but this problem is really inhibiting my use of such a great program. (I'm suspecting it could possibly be a problem with the bitrate of the audio maybe?)
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
Where are you playing the DVD? On a set-top player or a computer? Try as many devices as you can. This could be a problem with how the device is reading the disc, or possibly how it's handling the audio if you're using Dolby.
You can always change the bitrate of the audio by changing the transcode settings (assuming you're using Dolby; PCM is a fixed bitrate). You could also try using PCM instead of Dolby, or vice versa, although PCM takes up much more room.
