Having edited a group of holiday videos together and placed Menu and Chapter search capabilities into a project.
The project will not now burn to disk in a readable format, any suggestions as to how to proceed gratefully accepted.
Thanks,
Just Mercury. :crazy:

Your post seems to have falling into the cracks or no one who read it had an answer to provide.
I am not sure whether you have already resolved this issue or not.

I have recently used various forms of video editing software and have been doing VHS video tape to DVD conversions on both dual format machines and through Analog to digital converters on my PC.

I need to ask you what software you used to perform the editing and the finalization of this video?

I am curious what format was the finished video files saved as?

.VOB ?
.MP4 ?
.AVI ?

The project will not now burn to disk in a readable format,


The video project needs to be saved as/exported into a readable format, not written to the disc as such.

As MrBruce1959 requested, we would need the details of the software in question and your final requirement (DVD playback, AVI file)?

I am editing digital footage through Adobe Premier Pro CS4.
The footage has been placed into the program as MPEG-2 Video files
In this program i have managed to edit the footage and then export it to the partnered program
Adobe Encore CS4.
Through this program titles and menu's have been added, not altering any of the video footage or changing its format.
The video footage is over one hour long and therefor is more than 4GB and requires the larger 8.5GB dual layer disk's
I have attemped to burn the disk in the usual manner, the error message i now encounter does not give any information as to why the burn will not take place merely appearing as 'Failed to Burn'
Is there a different way to burn using the 8.5GB dual layer disks?
I am not sure if there is anything else to change when using these disks as it is my first time burning to them.

hope these are the details you require.
Any help is greatfully appreciated,
Just Mercury. :crazy:

Is Adobe Encore CS4 the program you are using to burn the disks?

If not, what burner software are you using to burn the DVD?

I realize your original files were MPEG-2, what type of file extension type are the finished video files?

Are they still MPEG-2?

Does your burner drive support the burning of dual layer disks that you know of?

Bruce.

Hi MrBruce1959,& ReviverSoft

Thanks for the early reply,
Adobe Encore CS4 is the program i'm using to burn the project to disk and the format is still MPEG-2.
What is the best way to find out whether or not my burner will handle dual layer burning?
Would it be possible to set the program to burn the project on a networked computer's DVD Burner even though the second
computer does not have Adobe Encore CS4 installed on it?
Thanks
Just Mercury. :crazy:

I have researched your problem as best as I can, although my major problem is I do not have the program to which I can experiment with.

What your problem may be is yes the file structure may be larger than a conventional 4.7 GB DVD can handle and most likely using a shrink program will not offer much in the way of reducing this structure to a size small enough to fit the disk.

Then again, shrinking it will also reduce the video quality quite a bit.

If you wish, you can try a dual layer DVD and see if your drive supports it, or you can research the drive by using a search engine and checking for your drive's support features.

Blue-ray drives are common these days and support up to 15 GB of data.
You may want to invest in one of those blue-ray burners for your computer.

Bruce.

Is the burner capable of burning to a dual layered disc? I've never used them before, so I don't know if it takes a certain drive, or even a newer drive.

I use encore a lot, and have only had this issue when I've had bad media. A new DVD work fixes that (obviously!).

An option is to export as media, then convert it to something high quality. Granted, you'll lose your menu options, but viewers can scrub through it using Windows Media Player if need be.
