Encore Blu-Ray project to DVD - Experiences?

Hi All - I'm having trouble getting a DVD image from my Encore Blu-Ray project.

It should be a simple case of changing the project settings to DVD format, and then building a DVD image.

Encore starts off transcoding and then hangs (clicking 'cancel' however gives me the 'are you sure....' even though it's been hours) - after two or three goes at this it completes and creates my DVD image

I don't have to time to carry out several attempts every time i need to do this

BTW I'm using dynamic link from Premiere Pro CS5.5

I find Encore works like a champ, or a chump. No in betweens.

Just to verify you're doing it correctly. Are you changing the Project settings firstly? After choosing the correct DVD settings and correct Max bitrate, you'll need to go to the build tab.
At the build tab, switch over to DVD Image, and DVD output.

At this point, i believe you also want to save the Project file as something else.

Yes I first build my Blu-Ray image - then go to project settings and change to DVD - then go to build and select DVD image - takes it a few goes which is time consuming

I might try exporting from Premiere Pro rather than using the dynamic link to see if that makes any difference

Iíve only tried this once, but since nobody is responding anyway Iíll comment on my experience. The Encore transcode looked like garbage compared to encoding through Premiere and Media Encoder. Based on that one experience I would suggest that you encode with the best quality possible for your project then create a DVD project. At least that is what I did.
