Adobe Encore DVD
WHO HAS THIS, and Can you watch the DVDs back on your DVD player on the TV, not just your computer??????

Glen Elliott November 13th, 2003 08:37 AM

Of course that's what DVD is for.

Mike Zorger November 13th, 2003 01:15 PM

hey glen i'm guessing you have the program. When you do the menues can you do your own menue in photoshop, or do you have to use the ones they give you??

very tightly integrated with PhotoShop. Easily switch back and forth for editing your menus/buttons. Haven't used it a lot yet but I've not experienced the glitches others have.

It's because you haven't used it a lot yet =/

I've used it pretty extensively and I can say it's the buggiest Adobe product I've ever used. Take for instance last night. I tried to burn a project to a dvd. I had burned this project before, and it went fine, though last night it refused to work. It came up with an error message when I hit "build". I restarted the computer today and it burned fine, using the same exact dvd. Then there's also the time where I spent about 50 minutes going through footage and chapter marking it. Encore crashed. So I had to do it over. It crashes often, but I think most of the time when I try to preview the dvd. (always save before ya do that)

As far as the photoshop integration, it's basic. It could have used a lot more work. It's counter productive to have to meticulously label all of your layers in photoshop with dumb signs like (=1) and (+), etc. It also will only work with Photoshop 7. I really wish you could set which layers do what (like buttons, highlights, etc) in Encore. All you can do in Encore is see the layers.

Adobe Encore DVD and 5.1 surround
hello everyone,
I posted this in Adobe Forum, but no reply yet.

I have the Adobe Video Collection (Premiere PRo, After Effects 6, Audition, and Encore DVD). I work with video in Premiere, and audio in Audition (to make 5.1 surround). when exporting from audition, I have the choice between:
- exporting as 6 different mono waves.
- or exporting as 1 wave (5.1).

If I export as 6 waves, then I have to import them to Premiere, then export them as AC3 file, to burn on DVD (Encore doesn't accept 6 wave files). But I can do this only 3 times, then I have to buy the AC3 encoder.

If I export as 1 wave file (from Audition), then I can use it right away in Encore DVD.

My question is: Am I safe to use the 1 wave file to make 5.1 surround in Encore DVD? Will it be perfect 5.1 with no problems?

The problem is I can't do tests right now. so your answer is really appreciated.

I might be about to learn something here, but I have never seen reference to surround sound that didn't include AC3. If you're asking whether there is a free alternative to creating AC3 surround sound I don't think so. There would be no market for the royalty for AC3 functionality if you could have your cake and eat it too.

xpro to adobe encore dvd
when going from xpro to adobe encore DVD does one have to go through sorenson squeeze first?

Rob Lohman December 10th, 2003 04:38 PM

I'm not exactly sure what your getting at here. What is xpro?

Steve Minnick December 10th, 2003 08:50 PM

sorry...that would be "avid express pro"...I have gotten answers from another forum but if you have a workflow that is similar...please share...thanks

Rob Lohman December 11th, 2003 04:06 AM

I don't on AVID. Sorry. But since DVD requires DVD compliant
MPEG2 and your AVID can encode that, just do that. Otherwise
you will have to find a common fileformat that Encore can
encode (if it has an mpeg2 encoder onboard) or use a third
party program to do the mpeg2 encoding.

Steve Minnick December 11th, 2003 08:41 AM

yeah - i would probably go with a QT ref file out on the avid ...then squeeze it...then encore

Louis Feng December 14th, 2003 01:06 PM

Actually, Encore and Squeeze both use Mainconcept's Mepg encoder. Encore will not re-encode if the clip is already in mpeg2 format.

So you can either encode with Squeeze then import it into Encore, or just import the clip as QT ref and encode before you make the DVD.

Encore Problem

this has happened every time i've tried building a DVD, anyone have an idea what the 'Unknown Error (DVD Error-1)' is?
