I have just entered the new world of trying to burn content to DVDs
instead of going to tape. I've got a 90 minute program cut on the Avid
which I tried transcoding and burning with Nero 7. The audio drifts--it
is slower than the video by a full 1.5 seconds at the end of the
program. This is driving me nuts...I've checked the exported version of
the program and it is fine, but by the time it gets on the DVD it is
not. Is Nero buggy? I've never had any trouble duping CDs or DVDs or
burning data discs. I've looked under the configure menu and don't see
any real audio settings, apart from enabling or disabling "smartburn" or
whatever it is called. Is this a sampling rate problem? Alternately,
does anyone have any good suggestions for DVD burning software which
might solve this problem?
I have done scores of productions without any of these kinds of problems.
I use Adobe Premiere to edit (and then export M2V) and then Adobe
Encore to author the DVDs (making IMG image files). I use DVDdecrypter
to burn the IMG image files to the DVD discs because I typically need to
lots of "re-orders" where I need to burn more discs on demand.
Adobe Premiere has a simple DVD authoring and burning feature included
(which I have never used) and Adobe Encore will also do burning itself.
I prefer DVDdecrypter as it gives infinitely more information about the
What kind of file did you use to get the video from Avid to Nero?
Have you tried other options (other file types, having Avid encode
MPEG instead of Nero, etc. etc.etc.)?
I exported from Avid as a DV stream, since Nero doesn't seem to like QT
reference movies, which is how they are normally exported for authoring
from Avid. I did a web search and found out that audio drift is a major
problem in authoring DVDs, with Nero and with other software. At present I
solved the problem with a burning/authoring program called ConvertXtoDVD.
The audio is now perfect, but I am seeing some motion artifacts that were
not there in the Nero burn, so I am still experimenting. I do have Encore,
and I guess now is the time to learn how to use it. Thanks also for the
tip on DVDdecrypter.
