Oof.


So today's frustration has been entirely with the fact that DVD's seem to take a week to make. First we have to burn a standard-definition h264 file and then we have to go through the process of actually making the DVD. But somewhere along the line something ALWAYS gets messed up. I know, you're supposed to be able to make the mpeg2 files in Compressor but...

Anyway, we ended up sending a portable drive with the DVCPROHD Quicktime movie on it. It'll get to the place by tomorrow and hopefully all will be cool with them making DVD's.

Oof.

I wonder how many of my blog entries are titled "Oof"?

Man, I have had next to no problem with Adobe Encore(maybe because I'm exporting from Premiere).

I actually can't believe how easy it's been(compared to the old days where burning "coasters" was the norm...)

What I really want is a Blu Ray burner so I can actually see how good the movie we just shot(my first hi-def) looks...

I'm surprised your having that much trouble. I found this work flow on kenstone.net, which thus far has worked flawlessly, for me at least. Check it out
