    Dual Layer Blu-Rays

    Long story short, I think there is a coding error DVDit Pro HD. My question is simple, have you ever created a dual layer blu-ray (volume, images, or the actual disc) which ended up with more than 40 GB of material (in the volume, images, or disc)? From all my experiments, I can produce dual layer discs from 25 GB to 40 GB but can not utilize the last 10 GB at all. So please, to test my theory, let me know if you have tried it and if the results were successful or not. Thanks, SB PS - if you are really adventurous and want to help me out, just try to create one. It shouldn't be hard to play with bit rates on material to create a disc that large. Remember, all you need to do is create a volume (I know th discs are expensive!).

    Project Too Big For Blu-ray Dual Layer 50gb

    Well, I the 22,000 kbps Target yielding a 39 GB project worked. It appears that my projects need to be under 40 GB. Is this a typo in the code somewhere? Has anyone else ever successfully created a blu-ray dual layer with more than 40 GB on it? Thanks, Shannon

    Project Too Big For Blu-ray Dual Layer 50gb

    For what its worth, here's an update on what I know. Furthermore, I know someone on an AVID board that did have success. I'm trying to gather more details. If you had success, please post and let us know. I don't know if this problem is still widespread (widespread being relative to those few burning to dual layer blu-rays) or just with me! Anyway, here's my update: I have tried to create several different image files (and volumes), but I can only create them when I limit the project to a certain size (apparently). I use the following Encode Settings: VBR Min: 5,000 kbps Target: 20,000 kbps Max: 40,000 kbps This yields a 35 GB project with SUCCESS. Using all of the EXACT same assets but changing to the following will NOT yield success: VBR Min: 5,000 kbps Target: 24,000 kpbs Max: 40,000 kbps This yields a 42 GB project with FAILURE. I've also tried the following: VBR Min: 5,000 kbps Target: 23,000 kpbs Max: 40,000 kbps This yields a 40.5 GB project with FAILURE. I'm going to try 22,000 kpbs as the Target yielding a 39 GB project and then 19,000 kbps just to see what happens. Is it possible that there is simply a typo and its expecting a size under 40 GB instead of 50 GB? The size on the computer of all the gi files match what DVDit Pro is suggesting (or at least as close to the nearest GB). Thanks, Shannon

    Has Anyone Created An .iso Larger Than 26Gb?

    Yeah, trying to find a solution Hoped if I could do my homework and find all the posts related, it might jostle someone's memory. Working on contacting Roxio directly and through their Facebook page as well as contacting Avid through Avid DVD (I happen to have both, DVDit Pro HD and Avid DVD - bundled package). Its hard for me to believe that something they have been promoting as "new" for over 3 years doesn't have a solution. I mean that some what literally too...I actually think there is a solution. I have found that once something goes quite for a while, its usually because there is a solution. Here's to hoping that's true!

    BUMP...did you guys ever find a solution to this? Thanks, SB

    Project size is too big! error

    BUMP...you guys seemed to be getting somewhat close...but then the thread drops. I can't burn to a dual layer blu-ray disc. I have over 6 GB of space left (giving plenty of room for the crappy space estimator) and still not luck. I've tried volume and now an image file. There are two start up videos, a still menu, and then two large video files. My video files are a 35mbs m2v file. I've been burning single layers for 3 years with no problems (or very few problems!) and all of a sudden, I add in a dual layer and bam...no dice. Thanks, SB

    Has Anyone Created An .iso Larger Than 26Gb?

    BUMP...anyone find a solution to this yet. I embarked on my first dual layer blu-ray...and as you guys can imagine, I can't seem to build an ISO file with material greater than 25 GB. Thanks, SB

    Blu-ray Motion Menus On Dvdit Pro Hd

    Sorry its been awhile...plugging away at catching up. Its amazing how backed up you get when on process doesn't work! Anyway, I completely re-installed my entire computer from the ground up. Not something I like doing. At first, I had some catastrophic errors, but with a system roll back (to the newer system...minus some of the latest drivers I must have installed), DVDit Pro HD started working again...and working relatively well. I created several Blu-rays all with motion menus. The odd part was that the audio and video didn't sync up quite right. It wasn't a big deal, just kept playing video after the audio was over (it was as if it slowed down the video somehow). All my projects did this. I found that if I checked the box to fade out, it at least wasn't abrubt. Maybe it wasn't really slowing down the video but cutting the audio short, I don't know. Anyway...I was several projects behind...so I had to go for it...and off they went. Now...I just recently received the dredded AS_Storage_Error message again. Don't know why. I certainly need to find some other solution. I liked DVDit Pro quite a bit, and the end result looks really really great. I like its simplicity as well, but if its not going to create motion menus with blu-rays...I either need to not create motion menus...or find something else. Very dissapointing. So close yet so far. I just don't understand what's going on. Its like I get so many blu-ray burns and then I'm done. I'll try to keep everyone updated, and I appreciate all the tips and advice... To answer the question specifically answered to me above: I create an m2v file from Liquid 7 at 35 mbps. This comes with its own 4 wav files which I delete. I then create a seperate wav file and import the two seperately into DVDitPro HD. There is an index file as well. It doesn't seem to care if I have that file present or not for DVDitProHD, but liquid likes it if I import it, so I usually keep it. I've tried mjolnarn's method prior...but I'm more than willing to try things again in case I missed something. What specifically are you changing in the preset? I just don't understand if something was wrong why it would only affect the motion menus?? Thanks, SB

    Internal Software Error

    The saga continues...man I can't wait until this is all behind me! I downloaded a new driver for my motherboard after reading about some stability problems (I'm throwing everything I can at my original problem). Well, now it did one worse. Now when trying to open DVDit Pro HD, I get the following error: internal software error: .\win\Primo\primo_command.cpp, line 125 -2 Any help would be very, very much appreciated. Thanks, SB

    Can't Create Widescreen (16:9) Project

    Yankee...I know in the preferences you can set the aspect ratio. Under Author you should se the menu aspect and a checkbox for maintain aspect ratio and scale similar images up to this size. In addition, under Simulation there is a tab for aspect ratio (but I think this is just for the simulation portion). Last but not least, every asset will have the ability to set the aspect ratio. I have found that everything needs to be set one way, and when it is, everything will go that one way. I know its been a little buggy for me but I haven't played with it much. Hope that helps though.

    Blu-ray Motion Menus On Dvdit Pro Hd

    Let me elaborate a little more. Lucio, I would also like to know some details about what you are using as we are seemingly having the same problems...maybe we can find a common thread. To test this, I've been using 2 files (m2v files created from Avid Liquid 7.2). I'll create a simple menu linking to one of the files and use the other file as the background to the menu (making it a motion menu). Both of these files are short (less than 30 seconds) and encoded the same (m2v @ 25 mbps - 1440 X 1080 - Top Field First). By the way...yes...I realized that this isn't a compliant format, but nothing from Avid Liquid is! It doesn't appear to matter what I do though. I've used all kinds of formats (including a method from mjolnarn). I've used Smetware's 35 mbps m2v files with no luck either. All of these files are elementry too. Obviously, since this whole project is less than a GB, I don't think defragmentation is my issue...however, the drive I'm working on (C Drive - remember, just reformatted) is completely clean of major fragmentation. Now, with that said, this is what I can do: With the motion menu, I can create a volume and create an image but I can not burn from either nor from the project. With a still menu (only using one video file then), I can create a volume, image, burn from both and burn from the project. SD has no problem at all, it can burn all the above. I even tried making a motion menu with just a button annimation - no luck! So, I'm using Avid Liquid 7.2 outputting in the standard m2v 25mbps setting. I do have smetware's m2v codecs. I have an LG Blu-ray player with cyberlink burning software. I'm pretty sure its not the burner, but would need a software tool that can burn gi files to prove that. I also think the files I'm creating from Avid Liquid are ok (they work without a motion menu). The only way I can test that though is to either use a different file for the motion menu (might try downloading random SD files for that - oh...I did try an old SD DV file too - no luck). That or if someone could test one of my files. None the less, this seems to point to a specific problem with software right around burning time with DVDit Pro HD (may not be its fault - but something is preventing me from burning!). Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated...this is driving me nuts!! SB
