What were you doing upto the point of the error? What are your settings? Explain the process you went through to create the DVD?

Hey Rob,
Is that news group something you somehow signed up for or something you just do a google search for? That could be a powerful tool in cases like this.

You can use google to search through half a million (I believe)
newsgroups posts in the past and in the present (no, not in
the future.... yet <g>).

They have their own "homepage" @ http://groups.google.com/

Or go to the main www.google.com and click on the
Groups tab above. There you can search and even browse the
groups if you want.

Adobe Encore DVD menues

Ok lets say i make my own menus in Encore, Im a little shady about how to make the buttons. Like where you would say "NEXT CHAPTER" or "BONUS FEATURES" stuff like that. How would I just make a layer that was made in AE/photoshot connect to that thing in Encore to make button.
thanks

Mike,

If you right click on an object in the menu screen, it'll offer up the option of converting that object to a button. It can be text, or any other type of object you may have imported.

Adobe Encore Problem

Whenever i try to import files into Encore to make a dvd it says that the file isn't the right size, I think it says it has to be 720 by 480. Would I have to import the video into Premiere Pro, save it as a PPro file and then import it into Encore, or is there an easier way I didn't think of? I'd rather not import it into PPro and then save it, but if it's the only option I guess thats what I'll do. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

You are going to have to be a lot more specific then this, Matt.
So let's get you started on a list:

1) what file format are you trying to feed into Encore?

2) where did this file came from? (DVD, DV camera, analog source)

3) do you know what the resolution of the incoming file actually is? What is the framerate?

4) what program(s) did you use to create this file

5) which settings did you use in those/that program(s)

Then we will be much better able to help you with what is
going on. Now it might be the wrong format, a wrong resolution,
an in proper codec, a busted XP installation etc. etc.

Adobe Encore -- various topics

I'm looking to create a DVD out of a two camera shoot. Rather than editing I was looking to use both streams of footage and author a DVD in which you could hit the "angle" button on your DVD remote to change the camera. Can Adobe Encore do this?

That's one feature the 1.0 version doesn't have. Users on the Adobe forums have it strong on their wish list for 2.0, which some are predicting will be announced this summer...can't say for sure, but I'd be surprised if any software at this price point or cheaper has multi-angles yet.

I'm guessing you'd have to go to the "true pro-level" software that costs big bucks; anyone else using other authoring software know more?

Do you have a list of authoring programs that offer this feature? Thanks in advance!

I believe DVD Studio Pro does multi-angles.

On the PC only DVD Maestro (discontinued) and Sonic Scenarist
seem to have that feature. Both are "high-end" authoring
packages that have an enormous learning curve (and price in
case of Scenarist).

The Mac people are more fortunate as DVD Studio Pro does
indeed support multiple angles with a nice user interface to boot.

I wouldn't be suprised if some PC product will emerge in 2004
that supports it as well (no, I don't know of any future products,
it's just a "feeling". Or perhaps hope, heh).
