  • Layer Change On DL DVD's

    Hi all,

    Just a quick question (although I think I already know the answer, but just in case someone knows a way I haven't discovered!).

    Is there a way within Edius 5.5 to force a layer change at a specific point? I know you have been able to do this since a few versions ago in Encore (which I don't have on this machine).

    I usually like to have a layer change on a a fade to black so that if there is a slight pause on someones machine then they don't notice it.

    If anyone knows of a way to force this on disc burner within Edius I would be very grateful.

    Many thanks

No keyboard - all input by thought transfer from a colander on my head. Gives me 180 layers of 4k in real time (all with 3D PIP added) and can encode and burn a 2 hour Blu Ray in just under 12 seconds. Custom editing chair that floats on magnets 2 feet above the floor. I am also able to travel in time.

    let the burning software decide the layer break, try Nero 9 or Nero10 burning Rom or ImgBurn (free)

    Nero 10 should create a seamless layer change, you won't see the change because Nero creates a cell start at the layer break point by splitting the clip to create the cell start

    layer breaks can only happen at cell starts, a cell start is a chapter point, so if you have a suitable chapter point in an area suitable for a layer break, you can tell ImgBurn to use this cell start

    I am not sure how Edius sets the layer break, it maybe seamless as well, I never tried

      Yes ImgBurn works very well for DL. This is what I have been using with great results. It is a great piece of free software... I get seamless and error free layer break playback.

        Any attempt to make it seamless (creating cell with seamless flag) may cause playback issue or crashing and this is quite common problem. LB cell should have non-seamless flag.
        Nero is ver bad in terms of setting LB, ImageBurn is great :)

        I meant that I don't see any hesitation or glitch at the layer break when played back... Bad choice of a word... I don't make it seamless :)

          Thanks for all the replies folks.......

          .....and hence my original post where I said I try to make my layer break on a fade to black before the next scene fades in. That way if there is a slight pause between layers ninety nine people out of a hundred wouldn't even be aware of it.

          This used to be easy in Encore because you could dictate where the layer break occurred.

          Cheers
