Question

I have some 25fps 1080i files coded in Apple Compressor that I'm to author to a Blu-Ray along with menus. When importing the video files into the project, the only message that pops up is that the files are not dvd compliant, which is fine. When I'm done authoring, linking etc., I try to export to an .iso file. It builds the menus, adds video and sound, then when it's about to write the .iso file, I get the following "error":

 

"The Disc Burning process was interrupted. Either because of an error or because it was cancelled...."

 

I also have the motion menu coded in Mpeg2 HD. This file works fine builds fine on itself (when I only put this file into a project and try to write an iso image). I've also narrowed it down to it being a problem with the video, and not the audio. The weird part is that even if the files are not compliant, DVDIt should say that the file isn't blu-ray compliant when importing them?

 

If I do a forced transcode ("Convert all compliant video and audio files") it builds it fine, but doing a double transcode on the files isn't really an option. And I don't know how the DVDIt Mpeg2 encoder rates compared to Apple Compressor.

 

Any ideas on how to solve this?

 

The only visible difference (in dvdit file information) between the menu hd file and the "movie" hd files is the field dominance.

interesting issue. not sure, maybe we have an issue with mixed field dominance.

 

here are a bunch of questions for you:

 

so you say the piece of video works fine on its own? with the audio? when placed in the timeline or in the menu compositor or both? are you putting text or thumbnails on top of the video in the menu compositor or are you just using a photoshop generated highlight layer underneath a piece of video that already had text on it? are your HD trancoding settings set to 1920x1080i 25? did you try changing the field dominance in the properties window? (that might mess with the video, not sure)

I've tried the main movie files in seperate projects, where I just put the movie on the timeline (with and without sound), and I get the same error when burning. I haven't tried putting the main files as a menu.

 

As for the menu, it's a video created with text, and a highlight image.

 

You can't change the field dominance of a video, it will make the entire thing studdery and jumpy I believe. So it's not really an option to change the field dominance. Since I've tried to compile these files in their own seperate projects, it can't be an issue with mixed field dominance, rather an issue with the field dominance used in those files (can't remember which at the moment, think it's lower/odd field first).

I too start with the video in Final Cut. If I export a short video/audio then DVDit Pro HD will work.

It will NOT work with the one hour long video/audio. The video/audio in Final Cut is the same. The only difference (that I know if) is the version i trim to 10 minutes or so works, the long version does not.

if you want to send us the files, we would be happy to look at them.
