    Sorenson Issues....

    Since Sorenson came bundled w/Avid, I'll throw this out for consideration.  Forgive me if this is considered "off-topic".

    I'm attempting to compress a 20 minute program from  MCA , for creation of a DVD.   I'm using Squeeze 4.2.

    Each time the compression gets near the end, it stops and gives me this message:

    ---The movie file "" cannot be found.  Without this file, the movie cannot play properly---

    It seems to stop at/near the same spot in the sequence each time. When I compress just a portion of that section of the sequence (thinking corrupt file), it compresses just fine.

    We've tried a number of things, all to no avail.

    Could this possibly be a Quicktime v.7 issue?

    Sound familiar to anyone?

    Thanks for your consideration,

    Tim

    Re: Sorenson Issues....

    Have you tried shorter length sequences? or ar they all 20 minutes?

    Re: Sorenson Issues....

    Shorter length sequences seem to compress just fine.   The kicker  is this is a sequence I used in a DVD not but two weeks ago.  The only difference is I added some additional material (:45 worth) to it today.

    As an update...we changed the target drive and directory and we're able  to successfully compress this problematic file.

    Go figure.

    Have a nice weekend all, and to our friends in the UK, did that whale find it's way out of central London?

    Cheers,

    Does anyone know if Sorenson comes bundled with Adrenaline NewsCutter as well? Our IT guys don't seem to know but we could really use it.

    thanks,

    Tim,

    I remove Sorenson from my systeb because I have very bad results in DVD transcoding. Today I use Procoder 2 and I'm happy with them. Fast and professional quality.
