You mean syncing audio to external preview? You can adjust that sync in Options - Preferences.

DVDA, Blank device and speed menu's?

Hello all, I had hoped that my first post would be a more positive one but; I'm trying to burn my first menu based DVD and I had no problems putting it together. Bummer was that I burned onto a DVD+R that will not play on any of my 3 DVD players but plays fine on my PC of course. So I read that DVD-R's seem to be more compatible to most home players so I rushed out & bought a 5 pk of DVD-R's but now when I get to the Select Burn Parimeters window the Device and the Speed drop menu's are blank and not selectable which will not allow me to click finish.

Is this being caused by the media I bought?

To see what I am seeing I ran across the same screen capture in Douglas Spotted Eagle's book on page 364, example 11.42.

Up till this point the whole V4, NLE, DVD thing has been a breeze, I hope it is just me being an idiot (is it plugged in?).

Thanks in advace.

Vegas MPEG2 render settings for MyDVD?

Please help. I've searched for other threads discussing MPEG2 encoding from Vegas and compatibility with various DVD authoring software. This hasn't answered my specific concern.

From Vegas, I rendered using the DV NTSC setting to create
the MPEG2 file. Once rendered this file plays fine in Windows
Media Player. When I try to burn the DVD using Sonic MyDVD, the program cancels during the writing phase and gives an error message stating the file is not a valid MPEG2 file. I use Memorex DVD+R media and have tried Fuji DVD+RW with the same results.

I was previously able to render a working copy of this same project (I hadn't inserted titling tracks) and burn a DVD using the same settings.

I suspect something in the rendering settings produces a file
not compatible with the video DVD standards or at least not compatible with what MyDVD requires.

Any help is appreciated.

What make and model burner do you have?
Some will not see certain media.

Check to see what the mfgr. says about media for your burner.

Your best bet for MyDVD is to render to AVI in Vegas and then import to MyDVD (get movies icon or control G) and let it bring the avi in and convert it. That should solve the problem.

The Plextor PX-708A, I checked out Plextor's compatability page after I posted this question and found that both brands of DVD-R I tried to burn were not on their list (Sony & Memorex).
Now the Maxell DVD+R I burned, DVDA did recognize but it will not play on my set-top players (All picky Toshiba models btw).

I had also read on the Sony forums that most people consider the Memorex's as garbage but at least they did not lock up my PC like the Sony disc did. I upgraded the firmware on the Plextor and that stopped the Sony DVD-R from locking up my PC but DVDA still will not recognize it.

Thanks Don

Did the mfg site list any DVD-R's or is the burner strictly DVD+R,
also, some DVD players just won't play certain media.
I have 4 DVD players and 1, which happens to be the fanciest as well as the oldest (about 2 1/2 years old) won't read any of my DVD-R's but all the others including another by the same mfr as the other player reads anything I put into it.
Goofy!
Good Luck,
Don

Can you explain, exactly what you are doing to Batch capture? A greyed out button isn't good.

Grazie

Take a look at issue #5 of my newsletter http://www.jetdv.com/tts

Basically, it will remain grayed out if:

1) You haven't logged a clip
2) You don't have device control enabled.

I just tried my third brand of media, a TDK 2X and DVDA will not reconize this disc also. TDK is on Plextor's compatability list.
This is getting rather frustrating.

Just how picky is DVDA?

Can I use another burning program (Roxio, Nero), to burn the Audio_TS and Video_TS files that DVDA prepared?

Thanks again.

Depends on the way you went about adding the effect. If you right clicked/ clicked the fx button/ or dragged an effect from the effects palette at the bottom into your clip then the effect is on the clip level.

To apply the effect to the entire track you have to click on the fx button in the track header or drag the effect from the effects palette on to the track header.

I almost always click on the FX button to add an effect. If I click on the button on the clip, I KNOW the effect is at the clip level. Same if I click on the effect button on the track header. If you drag the effect, just make sure you drag it to the right place.
