Length Of Time Burning An Image (9hrs)


wtdrm

Question

Maybe I'm doing things wrong. I have a post in general discussions "Frustration maxed out". That was about a problem with audio cd's. I was sure I had the correct firmware. Howver I went back to my drives website and found a newer version. That solved my problem.

 

The next problem I have is the lenght of time it takes to burn a project. The total project is 4025 MB. 38 minutes of video.

 

Here are the steps I have taken.

I 1st made a slideshow of pictures using slideshow asst. I like the way the pictures are encased in a frame and pan in and out. I then added the audio files to the slideshow. On the computer this looks and sounds great.

Next I went to mydvd and added that slideshow to the project. (this may be my problem, using a slideshow in the movie project)

 

I have burned 5 discs after completeing the movie project. The 1st one I burned took about 7 hours. I thought that was excessive. However I could see part of the production my dvd player. which is a Panasonic model dvd r32. Halfway through the pictures started skipping and were jittery. If it were on a satelitet feed I would call it pixalization.

 

The next time I tried to burn the production as an ISO image. that also took 7 hours. When I burned the image itb took another 7 hours. I am burning in the nhtsc format. With that disc all of the production was jittery.

 

This last time after my firmware update I burned the project as an image. (9 hrs.) then to dvd onoly 10 minutes.

 

Am I not supposed to create a slideshow to be used in the dvd process? or what else am I doing wrong?

I was able to update the driver for the Chipset. I had some limited success with the production,m This only took 3.5 hours to burn the image. I turnrf off everything I could think of in both tray. Lower right and the 3 finger salute tray. Disconnected from the internet. Turned off firewall and virus proection, This was a totally new production in video wave. For some reason this project was 2.5 gig. 1.6 smaller that my original.

I guess I' m past worrying about the time.

I just wish it would work. I still have the jerkiness. I even changed the interlace or latteral setting I saw from another post.

 

An Intersting thing. I bought some DVD+r discs and used them. The image burned fine and played on the PC great. My dvd player would not read the disc. I burned another one using DVD-R and it also plays great on the computer. But the DVD player would read it. That is where the jerkiness comes in.

 

This post is probably too far down the line for anybody to respond. I'll just kep Putzing till I get it right.

Thanks in advance.

Don't know how much truth there is in this, but I've read that it is sometimes helpful to update the firmware in your DVD Writer to keep up with new DVD-R media. AOPEN's download site is:http://download.aopen.com.tw/ If you decide to update the firmware, proceed carefully as incorrectly updating the firmware can damage your unit.

Doesn't sound like you are doing anything wrong and your computer has more than enough power.

 

First, go to nVidia website and make sure you have the latest driver for the nForce 3 chipset. This is what controls the hard drives and burners, too. Also make sure there are no background apps trying to use the CPU while you are rendering. Disconnect from the net and turn off your virus protection. Personally, I've never had a problem with this, but some people have. Just sounds like the process is getting interrupted too much somehow.

Try outputting each movie to an NTSC Mpg movie first, then add it to your production. When you add these movies to your production and burn them, MyDVD will produce the ISO very quickly and should be "jerk free". I know this is a work-around but it is the only thing that worked for some of my productions.
