  • DVD off the timeline

    I have a project on the time line, I go the export and the make DVD is greyed out. Can anyone give me idea what the hec I am doing wrong please?

    I am using Vista with E4.61, I know Vista is not supported but that comes with the Sony Vaio laptop that it is on, everything seems to work, other than having to save my work often other wise it closes down.

    A little more info, I have looked up on various threads only 1 has an answer, but not for me.

    Pal 25 frames sd 4:3 and this is correct in the project settings.

    Apologies if this is not the right answer - but I think you have to have a 50i project. Then the DVD option is no longer greyed out. Worth a try.

        select the time and pres x. A lot of people having this problem have put then in before the out by accident.

          Video export 8.0/Output to MPEG for DVD authoring 8.2

          A visaul aid might help. If you still do everything as it is explained here, then maybe it's some Vista-Edius problem, but I doubt it.

              Are your Project Settings 25i or 25p?

                Hi Rusty

                It is showing 50p in the project settings, and it was 25p I am sure but there is no alternative.

                This should be pal at 25p.

                Also is the DVD creator a plug in, I thought it is an integral part of E4

                I have also checked the i/o as suggested this was ok as well as making an mpeg2 of the file in pce importing to the tl and it still wont have the dvd export i is still greyed out. Maybe i should reinstall E4

                  P = no print to dvd. I =Print to DVD

                  The second post already made that known.

                  got to : http://ediustraining.grassvalley.com

                  Look under HOW TO documents.

                  Download: HOW_TO_Export_to_DVD with EDIUS
                  All will be crystal clear then.

                    Thanks Steve, I know where you are coming from, but I haven't got a choice, I can't change the p to I in the project settings it isn't there or am I in the wrong palce? That's why I think there is something wrong with my installation of E4 it worked perfectly until Sony replaced my laptop and I reinstalled the programmes, well they are replacing it again and I will start the install afresh when the new one arrives. In the meantime I have gone the pce route and burnt direct to dvd.

                      You will need to remember that EDIUS does not allow project frame rates/interpolation switching. What that basically means is that some progressive based projects simply will not allow a switch to interlaced. As a result, your 'p' project cannot be switched to 'i' to enable the DVD export option.

                      This is why it's extremely important to choose the correct project preset from the start.

                      You'll need to export your timeline out to DV, Lossless, HQ or Uncompressed, and then start a new project (with the correct DVD-friendly parameters), import the single file and then print to DVD from that new timeline.

                        or if the DVD does not require a menu, export with ProCoder Express for Edius

                            do you shoot with a progressive camera? how do you find progressive? I looked at the Canopus supplied progressive footage and the camera tilts and pans look shocking

                              Ah, that would be because the footage was from an XDCAM 60i master... :/
