I made a DVD movie processing on Compressor but I forgot to select the "Job Action" (Create DVD), so now I have the 2 files .m2v and .ac3 but I have to burn the DVD. How can I do without re-processing the original movie?

Thanks

    If you have Toast or DVD Studio you can use these files. If not, you'll may need  to re-encode the movie.

     

    But try this if you saved the the Compressor project that made those elementary streams. Reopen it and slightly change the name of the output files (say, by adding a numeric prefix to each name). When you do the yellow warning triangle should go away. Change the job action to burn DVD and submit, If it works, you should get a near-complete progress bar in a matter of seconds. Then you should be able to burn your physical disk or make a disk image for multiple copies.

     

    Good luck.

    If you didn't save your project. You can drag from the history panel (the DVD project) to the job well to redo the DVD job.
