Have a project with four movies, and chaptermarkers by time, steps eight minutes. All was fine, like in most project up to now, just now

 

 

 

at the first movie the last chapter had no sound.

 

After some workaround with the sourcemovies I removed the one movie and put one back setting chapterlenght nine minutes.

 

Results? The last chapter, now starting some minutes before, hass no sound

 

Any ideas?

 

~best regards, Karl

    Hi Karl

     

    Do You use iMovie (version ?) or FinalCut (version ?) ?

     

    In

    • iMovie'08 to 11

    - I do not "Share to iDVD" but "Share to Media Browser" and as Large or Medium (Medium especially if Audio behaves bad in Large - can do so)

     

    • FinalCut Express/Pro (not Pro-X - have non)

    - Save as QuickTime .mov

    - NO QuickTime Conversion - IMPORTANT !

    - Not as selfcontained - not important but saves time and space

     

    I'm very specific in what kind of Audio I use.

    • only .aiff 16-bit 48kHz or 44.1kHz (from Audio CDs)

    • .mp3 and all other ailient formats I convert to .aiff

    • iTunes - I collect needed audio into a New Playlist - BURN this as one .aiff Audio CD (Not .mp3) - the files on this CD I use in my movie project's

    By doing like this I have very very few Audio problems (at all)

     

    Happy New Year !

     

    Yours Bengt W

    Karl:

     

    Also follow this workflow to help ensure the best quality final product:

    Once you have the project as you want it save it as a disk image via the  File ➙ Save as Disk Image  menu option.  This will separate the encoding process from the burn process. 

     

    To check the encoding mount the disk image and launch DVD Player and play it.  If it plays OK with DVD Player the encoding was good.

     

    Then burn to disk with Disk Utility or Toast at the slowest speed available (2x-4x) to assure the best burn quality.  Always use top quality media:  Verbatim, Maxell or Taiyo Yuden DVD-R are the most recommended in these forums.

    You can set down burn speed in iDVD too

     

    iDVD menu - down to Preferences

    then select Advance - Now there is Burn Speed at the bottom.

    The slowest burn with Disk Utility is 2X which is adequate.  That's what I use.  iDVD will burn at 1X but that's burning direct to disk without going thru a disk image.

     

    By "as folder" you mean this, right?

    That works.  Hadn't tried it before so don't know how much disk space you save with that.
