I should that this issue doesn't occur if I backup a DVD using DVD shrink and then burn it onto a disc.
This is my 2nd computer where this issue has occurred so I am thinking that I am definitely part of the problem here but not quite sure where to start in resolving this issue. Any help is appreciated!
Did you ever work out what the problem was?
I didn't see that posted question until just now. But I would think it might have been an issue with reading and then re-encoding AC-3 (DD Digital) soundtracks, and if the license for Dolby is not part of the software, then a new stream might have been the way they went, and a mono one at that.
I do a lot of video editing and DVD output, and this stuff is pretty complex.
In the past year I have been handling HDV footage, and it is like learning all over again. I never feel truly up to snuff, and always am a bit behind the curve. Right now I need to learn After Effects from Adobe to feel like I am worthy.
Earlier today I was on my Mac making some changes to a 60 min. cut of a project I shot and edited. It is a band recording their album in a studio. And they paid me to shoot it only. The 60min. cut is for my demo use.
Anyway, a very small change made to the cut, and then render for..........12 hours!!!!!! That's right, my video will be viewable at 3am this coming morning. And I don't know if I will be done with the cut either (but I think so). It is the HDV footage that takes forever to process. But anyway, I am just glad I am getting this stuff down, and had the opportunity to direct something. The band was pretty hot, and so my demo will look and sound great.
The reason I did only a 60min. cut and not any longer is so that I can use PCM sound, have picture encoded at 8200kbs, thus resulting in top quality picture and sound. No Dolby Digital AC-3 for me on this one.
I would have used DVD Shrink to gather up sections form DVDs and reauthor them into one DVD. But perhaps this suggestion is a light year too late.
