What you're describing would be a live interpreter. It's very short notice, but I would contact David Medrano at http: www.interprenet.net. You can mention that I referred you. I don't want to write h

Can't import H.264
by Alex Kogan 12 years ago
I have an H.264 file that I created using Procoder 3.0 that I'm trying to import into Encore and it's not letting me import it. It shows up gray and unimportable when I go to import it. Anybody have a
Re: Can't import H.264
by Alex Kogan 12 years ago
Yes and no. What I've discovered is that Encore is very finicky about the types of files it will take. You have to use Premiere's export to Encore function to do the H.264 mpeg4 file type. This is an

I want to import an HD QT movie into Premiere for encoding for Encore (Blu-ray). Supposedly it's 720 24P, but I have a choice of either 720 25 or 720 30 when importing and both say progressive. Which

by Jon Barrie 12 years ago
Don't get a compressed format and then compress it again. That will degrade the quality of the image when you make the encoreDVD product. If they insist on it being QT ask for uncompressed. If they ca

Okay, I've done some more experimenting and it seems that Sorenson has some problem creating files that are properly read by Encore for this file type. So that makes Sorenson's files useless and Proco

Re: codec not loaded message

Yeah, I've been through tech support from GV and they take a while to call you back, but they're very good. I think the programers didn't really know what they were doing when they set this all up. Ho

This is all like DVD-Rs all over again, but worse. What's really crazy is that the Sony players don't play the discs. I had last week two discs from Netflix that wouldn't play in either of my Samsung

In your render settings choose a codec that supports alpha channels, like Animation (lossless--excellent quality, large file size), then choose Millions of Colors+ and RGB+Alpha. You'll have to choose

Hi airkogen, I'm betting the conversion messed up the file. Here's a reminder - if you want to apply different materials (textures) to diffferent parts of the object, you'll want to have the parts sep
