'Encoded subpicture line exceeds 1440 bits-19938'


Monkee_boy

Question

Hi. After an excruciating experience with the support staff lasting four days about registration...here i finally am.

MY problem: When i write a DVD, it builds menus, then audio, and then builds menus again. It gets to the end of the bar with building menus, but then it comes up with this error message, that the subpicture line exceeds 1440 bits, the dvd ejects, and the program freezes (sometimes). What i want to know is how to reduce th subpicture line, and why, with 1.4Gb space left on the dvd, it even matters.

Thanks a lot! hope someone can help.

to be honest, none of that means an awful lot to me. I was under the impression that the subpictures were the translucent menu items that changed the colour of the buttons when selected. Being all one colour...Can you simplify that all down for me? Where should i look for the problem or what steps can i take to resolve it?

Thanks...sorry...

i removed all the subpictures from the buttons. The only ones left now are the extensive subtitles on the entire forty minutes of video, which are essentail to the project and can't be removed, and the labels for the buttons, of which there are many and without which you wont be able to tell which button does which. How can i continue to reduce the size of the subpictures without removing anything else?

how many buttons are on a menu? how many menus? are any of your subtitles overlapping? how were your subtitles created? you need to test. I don't have your project. remove the subtitles and see if your project builds now. if it does, it is your subtitles. if it doesn't, it is your menus.

t the whole reason i'm using DVDit Pro instead of, say, Nero, is because this supports subtitles. If I take them out it was a bit of a waste of money, see?

 

EDIT: Okay it burns without the subtitles. The subtitles were created in Subtitle Workshop as a Ulead DVD file, and then manually converted into the right format for DVDit. DVDit wouldn't accept a couple of them that were overlapping so i had to put them back in with the DVDit editor. None of them overlap. Every button has a separate text lable, plain black, default font.

as for the menus, there are eight, each with a fairly small picture as a background, and each with between two and nine buttons, none of which have subpictures now. As i said, there really isn't much point to the whole project if I can't burn all the things. I can maybe lose the background pictures if i have to. Any advice? I would have thought it was possible to make projects this complex without much difficulty with a piece of software this high profile...

once you identified that it was the subtitles I don't think you needed to even continue looking at the menus. you are going to have to look at other means for creating the subtitles or find a way in the program you are using to reduce the size of the subtitles. my gut is that one of the parameters you are using in the Subtitle Workshop program is making the subtitles too large.

well the subtitles are basically just a text file, (.txt)

(time:time subtitle)

so that in itself isn't whats causing the problem. As far as i can see there's no way to reduce the size of the subtitles.

I'll try adding the subtitles back for each of the three files one by one and see if it's one particular file causing the problem?

 

EDIT: the third video has only five subtitles on it. Yet i added just those few and it refused to write again. Hmmm. Intriguing. I'd dearly like to know what DVDit has against adding any subtitles at all, since it has a subtitle track.
