Question

output to Volume and then try to burn the volume to DVD. make sure your DVD drive has up to date drivers. you can also try a different kind of DVD+R in your drive.

 

Ok, I'm able to burn my video file to DVD however, the video on the disc is incomplete. I have two video clips that last around 20 minutes. I have two Buttons linked to play lists 1 and 2 and I follow the direction above but the disc only contains 12 seconds of video

where did your video come from for this project? if it is video that is being transcoded in DVDit, then it sounds like the program can't properly read the length of your video assets.. like they are Variable Bit Rate and drop down to virtually nothing after 12 seconds and the program cuts them off or something...

The video is shot from a security camera and stored as m2p. The m2p file is quite large, ranging up to 5 hrs in length.

 

I edit the m2p file using edius 4 where the video is composed into two 20 minute videos. I'm able to do a direct burn from Edius by using pro coder by selecting DVD as the target.

 

However, I'm wanting to finish the video in DVDit pro in order to attach menu buttons, so instead of selecting DVD as the target, I choose the generic target option and highlight MPEG. After the file is written, I drag and drop the newly converted mpeg file into the DVDit pro HD media pallet. I've tested the video on the simulator and the entire length in the simulation is in tact.

When you "output to volume", have you checked the created files to see if the clips are 20 minutes? This way, maybe we can see if they are created or burned incorrectly.

How do I check this?

 

When you "write to volume" DVDit outputs the files on your hard drive, for a DVD you should see a folder called "video_ts" which will have the (VOB) video files. If you have a software DVD player, you can point it to the folder and it should play like a normal dvd and you can check the videos. If they are working there and not working from the disc, then there is a problem with the burning. But if they are still only a few seconds then DVDit did not generate the video files correctly.
