Still Can't Make An Avchd Disk...

Question

After getting the "() authorscipt error" in trying to burn an AVCHD disk the way the manual says to do it, I went through each step of the work around listed...had no problem creating the mp4 file then imported that and tried to reburn according to the intructions. Still getting the same error at the end of hours of encoding. I've tried repairing the install, using software and hardware encoding. I've tried this about 5 times carefully to make sure I wasn't doing some steps wrong, so I don't think that's the answer. My computer is about 5 years old but it still works well: Windows XP pro, 4mb ram, Nvidia GeForce 6800 w/256 mb memory. 1 TB hard drive w/800 gig free.

 

The VW production is 31 minutes long contains maybe 25 different AVCHD clips that were archived by Roxio from a Canon Vixia hi-def camcorder. BTW, I transferred the archived AVCHD clips I wanted to use to a file on the computer. Also there are 35-40 photos mixed in. I used pan and zoom on most photos, most transitions were disolves. Is this too much to ask from my computer? or this software?

 

One thing I tried was to take an early save of the VW production and added just a couple of video clips and 3 or 4 photos...maybe 3 minutes total, saved it and sent it to MYDVD, burned (AVCHD) it and it came out fine, plays great on my Sony BD player and the PS3. The files on this disk don't look like the screenshot in the workaround...they are: Roxioplama and Video_TS.

 

Another thing I tried is importing the original 31 minute mp4 back into MYDVD but just used standard DVD rather than AVCHD and then burned that using all the workaround steps...just wanted to see what would happen. It completed the burn, plays on the blu-ray players, plays back in 16x9 1080p plays at 8 to 9 mbs but the playback is jerky and just looks like a slow frame rate. It's really unwatchable after a few minutes. I don't know the explanation.

 

Are there people who have actually gotten the results they wanted using this type of production? If so I would really appreciate any and all tips on what I can try next.

That means that you created a standard DVD not a AVCHD DVD.

Yeah, you're absolutely right! I went back, took that same short VW file and when I sent it to MYDVD, made sure that the new project was set to burn in AVCHD, did a burn to disc, there was no "()authorscript error" and it loaded and played fine in my blu-ray player. This must be simple stuff to experienced users like you. Oh, and the files on the disc are: BDMV and Sonic and it's playing back at 12 to 14 mbps and looks great!

 

So what would be your advice to me now to make this project the way I would like to: about 31 minutes total time: should I just continue adding a little more content at a time and then try another AVCHD burn? I didn't use the workaround procedure with this 3 minutes total time. Should I expect it to continue to work this way or is there a point caused by the increased amount of content or anything else for that matter in your experience that I should be aware of?

 

Thanks again for any of your input.

It can be elusive and no one thing works everytime…

 

Look at this post for some things to try - Here

 

 

Yeah, I've tried the "workaround" several times to make sure I'm doing everything as instructed....still no luck. Any other suggestions? I've emailed Roxio tech support everything they've asked for. Haven't heard anything back yet. I don't have Norton but I do have AVG antivirus 2011...I guess I can try again with that turned off....this is really getting frustrating! Does everybody else except me get good results when using the workaround?????

Another user suggested this and I just tried it for a project of mine that was failing with an AuthorScript error...

 

Turn Off Roxio AVC SmartEncode:

Give it a try and see what happens. I was using 2011 this morning and it worked for my project.

 

 

OK...thanks I'll give it a try!

well it was worth a try but still get the dreaded "authorscript error". Tech support says to completely unistall then re-install. so I'll do that next but I'm still looking for suggestions from people who have succesfully created an AVCHD disc containing videos and photos.

 

I know now that this problem has been around for awhile and there aren't many posts about this problem, so I don't know if everybody else is having success with this or there's just not that many people trying to do this.

Sorry it did not work for you. The Clean Install, sounds like a plan…

 

Bluntly, it will never be “fixed” in Creator 2010… Creator 2011 seems more tolerant but not immune.

 

Another approach is take each VideoWave segment and output in similar resolution as your final output. Of course you have to rebuild your MyDVD project with them, but if you were wise enough to keep that simple, no pain :D

That sounds like a good approach...will be gone for a few days and then will do the clean install and try it....please keep the tips coming, I'm gonna figure this out eventually! It looks so good when it does work. :)
