Hi, Jim


As an AVID user myself, I have found a couple of workflows that get my edited product into DVDit Pro. If my timeline is the 1440x1080 preset, I have had consistent results outputting elementary streams. Fuse to a file is the menu choice. I get a video file (m2v) and audio file(s) (WAV) that I have to put together in DVDit, but it works. If my timeline is the 1920x1080 (I'm NTSC.) then the MPEG2 output works better for me. (meaning no errors/hangups.) I have not changed any settings from these presets that came with Liquid. They are as installed.

are you outputting a program stream or elementary streams? WAV audio will always show as non-compliant for blu-ray. I think you will find with elementary streams those video settings will result in an m2v that passes through without retranscoding. also be aware that the message will still pop up saying the stream is not DVD compliant...as it is not DVD compliant.


by the way, you can also just output a QT reference file from your Avid and then import that into DVDit Pro HD and let the program do the transcode for you...


last comment here. that's a low bit rate for 1080 stuff. I would go with more like 25,000 kbs

Thanks for the response ,

Yes I'm outputing an elementary stream as my settings show.

The low bitrate comes from trying to make 1 encode for both HD formats and the movie is 108 mins long .

Dual layer HD DVD and single layer disc for Blu Ray .

The main reason I don't allow DVDIT PRO HD encode my movie is that it creates some sort of

transport stream that I can't use with any other software .

Is there a Utlility that will allow me to un mux what DVDIT PRO HD outputs ?

The error I get says it not compliant to both formats dvd +Blu Ray .

Is there a Mpeg 2 HD file that I could download even if it's 3 secs I like to analize the file and

see what DVDIT PRO HD accepts .

Anything I try with Procoder 2 doesn't seem to work even there standard settings for Mpeg 2 HD

Can Roxio help if not

What Can I do to get a refund . I bought the software Yesterday .
