Thanks for responding...
Project Settings: DVD-Video, 16:9, NTSC, Play Movie andall remaining movies in project, costrain button aspect ratio, Pre-render menus in preview, and Acoustic alert after buring. This is my default. Also, Fit to Disc and Interlaced.
I use "My DVD" to create the production with Menu's in a standard DVD format even though I have HD quality clips... the movie files themselves come from my Sony VIdeo Camera, they are generally 1 min to 3 min clips. I assemble my clips as desired in various "movie segments", but all using "My DVD". When I am done I save it. And I use the "Burn" button at the bottom of the screen to create an iso file. I always create an iso file to be able to test my production before burning to a DVD. AT this point is when I get the "8004520c Error while Encoding Movie 1". I don't always get it. Sometimes I can work around it by just shutting down "My DVD" and then re-opening it. Sometimes I restart the machine and then it works. Sometimes I shut it down and wait a while then come back and it works. Today it doesn't want to work at all.
During the assembly of the production... generally while editing, I'll be adding text or clipping a specific video. And it just freezes and gives me that Video Wave Stopped Working error and eventually shuts down the program. As a result I have gotten into the habit of saving quite often. (In the Version of the Software its VideoWave14.)
I have been using a Reg Cleaner, an Optimizer, and check for viruses to try and eliminate extraneous issues. I have archived to create additional space on my drive to ensure it has space for temp files, etc. I check to see if it needs Defrag, but it doesn't.
If you or anyone else have any tricks they use to get around these issues... please let me know.
Thanks Again :-)
