Audio synch out after burning


drbgaijin

Question

I am hoping to add my story to "DVDit Success stories" soon.

But not yet :(

 

Although I am using downconverted HDV material and burning DVDs (not Blu-Ray) yet I still decided that the DVDit Pro HDV was worth the investment.

 

Slowly I am getting there, but now I notice that although my project plays back in synch from the simulation - an audio slip occurs on the final DVD output.

I have tried both burning to DVD direct and making an ISO file.

But to no avail...... the synch slips out by a few frames.

 

Does anyone have any advice at this point?

 

Regards,

Douglas

consistent slip or gradually over time? what kind of assets are you bringing into the application?

 

Because of the nature of my productions in which there is very little or no lip-synch it is difficult to answer the question on the type of slip.

I have noticed it when a japanese drum is beat, or a craftsman hits an object with a hammer.

The synch is correct all the way up to watching the finished project in "Simulate" mode.

The videos are being transcoded by DVDit - then I notice the slip.

 

The assets are made by fusing timelines from Avid Liquid (To be perfectly correct - from Pinnacle Liquid 6.1)

The fuses are either .M2V + .wav or .AVI and .wav

 

Today I will try using other encodings before I bring them into DVDit.

 

I am pretty sure that the problem is with me, the user, and not with DVDit.

Are there any settings that I maybe should change in the preferences?

or are there some I should leave alone?

 

Finally, what is the best way to get quick support? I notice that you are extremely busy - helping out on various boards with DVDit questions.

Scott,

I have been looking at the encoding and the timeline in DVDit.

Maybe I found the problem!

 

The files I was using from Liquid had audio-embeded in the avi.

Using them I couldn't get any sound, so I thought I was being clever when I deleted the "embedded" sound track from the DVDit timeline and then added a separate audio stream to the timeline.

Maybe the added separate audio was having problems with the embedded one? Does that make sense.

Anyway I now have tried using Canopus Procoder 2 with the Liquid M2V +wav files and re-encoded to MPEG2 with separate audio.

So far this seems to have solved the audio slip question.

But I will have to test further, and with a complete menu structure before I can breathe out!

 

I seem to remember having seen some suggested parameters for Procoder on this Forum..... can you point me to them?

 

Hopefully all is well,

 

Douglas

 

PS. The way things are looking I can soon post my story on the "Success Story" thread :D
