I’m going batty, right now.
I’m trying to author a DVD for a client. We have about twelve MP4 files we made which add up to about eleven minutes of footage. All of the MP4 files play perfectly.
After authoring the DVD together using DVD Flick however, I’ve found the most irritating problem. At a few points throughout the movie we have the screen fading to white, and at each of those points, during the fade, playback would ‘jitter’. I don’t know what other word to use; It sort of st-ic-ks wh-il-e pla-yin-g those parts.
I’ve been researching it all day and trying different things. I tried variable vs. constant bit rates (at lower and higher qualities). I tried converting the MP4 files to other formats, including AVI. I tried playing back with the video player window smaller (just to test if it was the playback that was the trouble or the actual authored DVD). I tried NTSC and ‘NTSC-film’ formats. I tried reducing the number of video files to just one.
Each time, the same thing happens. At those points where the screen goes white, it- st-art-s to fr-ee-ze- up.
I’m baffled. I have no clue what the trouble could be.
Could anyone out there lend me a few more suggestions to try?[/FONT]
