    Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    Project properties are 1920x1080/30p. My project has 27 minutes of content (mostly still images with fade and dissolve transitions in between, with a few minutes of additional video). When I go to Make Disk and set Setup Options to be: Disc Type = DVD, Video Quality = Best Quality, Target media = DVD 4.7 GB; studio calculates "Approx. 14 minutes of video on disc", and then when I click "OK" it reports "Available: 0 seconds, Over: 13 minutes". This is obviously not right: a 4.7 GB DVD at Best Quality should have ~60 minutes available. Because studio thinks that I have too much content for the disk, it won't allow the Create disc operation.

    I found that if I use File - Delete Auxiliary Files to delete all of the projects aux files and then go back to Make Disc, it will then report the correct times again (61 minutes total, 25 minutes available, 27 minutes used) and I can Create disk once. But since that causes all of the auxiliary files to render again, Make Disc then reports the incorrect time again the next time I try Make Disc, and I have to delete all the auxiliary files again to run Create disk again.  I now pretty much have to delete all auxiliary files every time I want to make a new DVD to check recent edits, which is adding hours to the disc creation time.

    I opened a support case for this, and the reply I got back was "You have made a correct step, this is solved by just deleting the auxiliary files".  In my mind, this is a rather costly (in terms of my time) work around, not a solution.

    Does anyone know of a way to get a fix for this problem or, alternatively, configure Pinnacle Studio to allow the Create disc operation even though it thinks I have too much content for it?

    Searching through the forums, I think my problem may be related to the ones reported in these two other threads, although I'm trying to create a DVD while they're trying to create Blu-ray:

    Blank Blu Ray disc only reports 17 minutes available: http://forums.pinnaclesys.com/forums/thread/399162.aspx

    Can't burn a HD Blu-Ray disc if the project/timeline is over 22 Minutes: http://forums.pinnaclesys.com/forums/thread/399286.aspx

    Re: Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    I have the exact same problem with making a 1920x1080/30p Blu-Ray Disc.

    If the project is 22 Minutes 6 Seconds or shorter, all works fine. If the project is 22 Minutes 6.05 Seconds or longer, I get the same Available 0, and cannot burn a disc.

    Shorten your project to 22 Minutes, 6 Seconds or less and it will work.

    Fleto Lacambra of Pinnacle tech support told me to delete the render files as well. That helped in that if the project is 22 Minutes, 50 Seconds or less the available space is correct. If the project is 22 Minutes, 51 Seconds or more, the available space is 0.

    Fleto told me to delete my install, run a reg clean utility, and re-install. Well, that didn't make any difference. Same problem.

    I asked Fleto to make a new project, add a 16:9 title, set the length of the title to 24 Minutes, and he will see the problem. He ignored my request, and told me to re-install the software. Well, I did, and it didn't change a thing.

    I haven't seen any patches for Studio 14. I use to get patches all the time for Studio 10. Seems like the Pinnacle Studio development crew is gone.

    Transcript of my case chat:

    Log Started Wed May 12 06:11:37 PDT 2010

    [06:11:42] You have been connected to Fleto Lacambra.
    [06:12:00] Fleto Lacambra: Hi Scott, my name is Fleto, how may I help you?
    [06:12:39] Scott Ackerman: I'm trying to get help with Can I get help with case 01208038
    [06:13:08] Scott Ackerman: I can't make an HD project over 22 minutes and 6 seconds when the destination is a 25 gig BD
    [06:13:13] Fleto Lacambra: One moment please. Thanks!
    [06:13:47] Scott Ackerman: If the project reaches 22 Minutes, 6.05 Seconds, it reports that no space is available on the BD
    [06:16:38] Scott Ackerman: There screen captures of the problem attached to the case
    [06:18:40] Fleto Lacambra: My apology can you please open studio.
    [06:18:59] Fleto Lacambra: Then don't load the project.
    [06:19:09] Scott Ackerman: It's open
    [06:20:25] Fleto Lacambra: 1. In Studio menu, go to Setup>Project Preferences
    2. Under 'Folder for auxiliary files', click DELETE.
    3. Select 'Delete auxiliary files for all project'. Then click OK.
    [06:21:14] Scott Ackerman: ok
    [06:21:36] Fleto Lacambra: Close studio then re-open it.
    [06:21:58] Fleto Lacambra: Then afterwards load the project.
    [06:22:34] Scott Ackerman: ok, it's open
    [06:23:04] Fleto Lacambra: Then go to make movie.
    [06:23:33] Fleto Lacambra: Under burn options select then second option create disc content but don't burn.
    [06:24:26] Scott Ackerman: ok, I have done that
    [06:24:43] Fleto Lacambra: Click ok now.
    [06:24:54] Scott Ackerman: ok
    [06:25:30] Fleto Lacambra: Then try to create that disc image after creating that disc image try to click on settings again and choose "Burn from previously created disc image".
    [06:25:57] Fleto Lacambra: Then select that disc image that you have created.
    [06:26:01] Scott Ackerman: I can't make the image. Avaialable space on the blank BD is 0 seconds
    [06:27:14] Fleto Lacambra: Can you click on the green button?.
    [06:27:33] Scott Ackerman: What green button?
    [06:27:58] Fleto Lacambra: Create disc.
    [06:28:43] Scott Ackerman: There is a grey/black button that says "Create Image".
    [06:29:09] Fleto Lacambra: Can you click it?.
    [06:29:18] Scott Ackerman: When you click on this, it says the project size is larger than the media size.
    [06:30:16] Scott Ackerman: If I shortin the project to under 22 Minutes, 6 Seconds, Studio shows 100 minutes avaialble, and will burn a disc image
    [06:31:08] Scott Ackerman: If the project is 22 Minutes, 6.05 Seconds, it Studio says 0 Seconds available, and will not burn a disc image
    [06:33:17] Scott Ackerman: It looks to me like there is an integer math error in Studio when it is calculating the available space on the 25 gig BD
    [06:33:31] Fleto Lacambra: Can you please have this settings.
    [06:33:33] Fleto Lacambra: Within Studio go to Setup - Video and audio preferences. In the video preview section of these settings are the following check boxes:

    * Enable full-resolution preview
    * Enable hardware acceleration

    Try ticking and un-ticking both of these options to see if any combination of these settings has an effect on the preview problem. You need to restart Studio in order to take effect.
    [06:34:15] Scott Ackerman: There isn't any preview problem. Preview works great
    [06:34:44] Fleto Lacambra: Yes I know but can you please try to have that procedure.
    [06:34:56] Scott Ackerman: ok
    [06:35:01] Fleto Lacambra: And can yuo tell me if you have a disc or a download version?>
    [06:35:29] Scott Ackerman: Disc Version. I bought it directly from you.
    [06:35:45] Fleto Lacambra: I see thanks!.
    [06:41:17] Scott Ackerman: ok, Having both items ticked. If the project is over 22 Minutes, 51 Seconds, space available on 25 gig DB is 0 Seconds. If the project is 22 Minutes, 50 seconds, space available on 25 gig BD is 101 Minutes
    [06:42:31] Fleto Lacambra: Ok thanks for the update.
    [06:43:09] Scott Ackerman: That is strange that ticking both of them would change the project size by 44 seconds
    [06:43:24] Fleto Lacambra: Now try to have this settings.
    [06:43:27] Fleto Lacambra: - Put the disc on the computer run the installation then choose the option for repair that will repair some errors on the software.

    - Then try to update the driver for the burner.
    [06:44:12] Fleto Lacambra: Should you need further help, you can reply to the email that this chat session will be automatically sending you so we can continue troubleshooting.
    [06:44:24] Scott Ackerman: I have done this for the past two weeks. The last update for the burner was two days ago. I updated it, and nothing changed
    [06:45:06] Scott Ackerman: I don't believe it has anything to do with the burner, It is a calculation error in Studio
    [06:45:32] Scott Ackerman: The burner is reporting the correct available space on the BD
    [06:45:41] The agent is sending you to http://avid.custkb.com/avid/app/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=288459&Hilite=Studio+14+uninstall.
    [06:45:53] Fleto Lacambra: Please have Section 2: Advanced Uninstall and Reinstall Steps on that link.
    [06:46:04] Scott Ackerman: Studio is corrupting it when the project grows over a certain size.
    [06:46:46] Scott Ackerman: I have done all the uninstall, and re-install, over and over
    [06:46:51] Scott Ackerman: no changes
    [06:47:32] Fleto Lacambra: Are you sure you have done the regdelete on that FAQ document?.
    [06:48:59] Scott Ackerman: My Studio works perfect on DVD's. Only on BD's Studio has a what appears to be a math problem on calculating free space
    [06:49:38] Scott Ackerman: You can recreate the same problem on your computer
    [06:51:14] Scott Ackerman: Make a 16:9 project. Add a title. Make the title 22 Seconds long. Click make disc with BD Best quality selected. It will work. Change the length of the title to 30 seconds. Click make disc, and studio will tell you there is 0 seconds available on the BD disc
    [06:52:06] Fleto Lacambra: Can I ask have you tried to have the section 2 on the link that I had provided you?>
    [06:53:24] Scott Ackerman: I have not run regdelete.
    [06:54:16] Fleto Lacambra: Please try to have that procedure should you need further help, you can reply to the email that this chat session will be automatically sending you so we can continue troubleshooting.
    [06:54:40] Scott Ackerman: Did you try and make the project that I asked you to try
    [06:55:36] Scott Ackerman: Do you have a Blu-Ray burner in your machine?
    [06:56:52] Fleto Lacambra: Sir please try first the isolation that I had provided you and if does the same thing you can reply to the email that this chat session will be automatically sending you so we can continue troubleshooting.
    [06:58:27] Scott Ackerman: I don't know what to say

    Re: Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    Are you using MTS or M2TS source files?  I am.  I wonder if this has something to do with the problem of calculating the time estimate?  Most people on the forums are converting the H.264 MTS M2TS files to mpeg2 before using them in Studio.

    Just a thought?

    Most of my content is still images with transitions, but I went back and checked on the various video snippets in the project.  It looks like I have a 1920x1080 MPEG-2 (31.27 seconds), 1920x1080 MPEG-4 (1:25), a little over two minutes of 640x480 DivX, and 1280x720 H.264 MOV (about 40 seconds worth).  I should also probably mention that there are also a number of title overlays on the images, as well as one to two additional tracks of audio running throughout most.

    Re: Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    In one of the similar threads, someone suggested trying the "Create disc content but don't burn" option.  That does no good in this case, as it still results in the   "The project size is larger than the chosen media size.  Do you want to truncate the project to fit the media size?" dialog when I click the "Create image..." button.

    Re: Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    More data:  the time estimate miscalculation appears to be consistent, but not constant (if that makes any sense).  Here's what I mean.

    If I go back to the same project as in the original post, I seem to always see the same values (with 27 minutes of real project, DVD Best Quality reports disc size of 14 minutes resulting in 0 Available and 13 minutes over).

    However, I've now done a "Save Project As..." to create a copy and added more images, etc. so that the timeline now shows 31:35 minutes of content.  The project has completed background rendering of all the content.  If I go to Make Move and set for DVD Best Quality, Studio now reports "Approx. 36 minutes of video on disc" resulting in "Available: 5 minutes, Used: 32 minutes".

    Re: Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    Ok, I've done some more testing.

    I used xilisoft Video Convertor 6 to make mpg4 and hd-wma version of my 1 Minute 48 Second mts file.

    I then made three projects adding 13 copies of the 1 Minute 48 Second files.  One project using the mts file, one project using the mpg4 file, and one project using the hd-wma.  All three projects fail(Make Movie Available 0 Seconds) at the 22 Minute 51 Second point on the time line.  If I trim the last copy of the clip to 22 Minutes, 50 Seconds, all three projects work(Make Movie Available 103 Minutes.

    A very interesting side note that I have discovered.  If the project timeline is less than 22 Minutes 50 Seconds, and you're on the make movie tab, it shows available 103 Minutes.  If you change to the edit tab, make no changes, then change back to the make movie tab, it reports the available space as 0 seconds.  If you shorten the last clip a little, the available goes back to 103 Minutes.  If you then change the last clip back to the full length, the available stays at 103 Minutes.  Also, If the project timeline is less than 22 Minutes 50 Seconds, and you're on the make movie tab, it shows available 103 Minutes.  If you change to the edit tab, make no changes, then change back to the make movie tab, it reports the available space as 0 seconds.  If you click on File, Save Project, after the save, the available space comes back to 103 Minutes.

    Re: Studio 14 Ultimate DVD Time Estimate Incorrect

    More data:  it was suggested to me that I should try changing the Video Quality from "Best Quality" to "Automatic Quality".  For consistency, I tried doing this back in the original 27 minute project that I started this thread with.  Doing so shows a bitrate of 2000 Kbits/sec in the Settings screen, and "Quality: 24%" on the disc-o-meter.  I did the "Create disc" to see if the quality really would be that bad, and unfortunately it was:  every single transition between my still images looked horrible (pixelization / blockiness), as did the video (alternatively, when I use the Delete Auxiliary Files workaround to temporarily get the disc size estimate to be correct so I can use "Best Quality", things look great).  On Automatic Quality, Studio really appears to be calculating the bitrate to use based on the (incorrect) estimate of how much space the disc has.

    Raff_Uy: have you managed to reproduce this issue yet?

    I can burn DVD's just fine.  It's Blu-Rays that only work if the project is under 22 - 23 minutes.

    I have been using 14 since November.  Yes, I have made over 67 DVD titles with little trouble.

    I was using Studio 10.5 & Studio 10.6 for several years before purchasing 14.

    No, this is not the first time I tried burning in Studio 14.  I did a number of short (less than 10 minute) test projects to make sure that this version of Studio was more stable than the previous (I've used Studio versions 8 - 10 in the past, and they all had their issues).  All the DVDs came out fine.

    On this particular project, I've been putting it to DVD as every 5 minutes (or so) of content was added, to check the timings and volume levels on an actual television (which is less forgiving than the laptop speakers are for sound volume variations).  I didn't notice this issue until the project reached 27 minutes of content.

    I tried to reproduce but I'm not getting the error that you got.

    I don't need to delete auxiliary files on this project.

    It looks like you have the same project settings as I have, but its hard to tell if you're using transitions, etc. from the shrunken timeline.

    One obvious difference between your screenshot and my system is that it appears that you're running Studio in Windows XP, while I am running under 64-bit Windows 7.

    I've done some tinkering around to see what the "simplest" project I can reproduce this issue (or one very similar) under is, and I've managed to create a pretty simple one consisting of a single still image, repeated pasted 324 times (image duration is 5 seconds each, so the project ends up being exactly 27 minutes).  I put a Fade In transition at the very start, and then Dissolve transitions for the rest.  Auto-rendering completed very quickly (all the transitions seemed to render simultaneously), and the end result on the Make Movie screen is shown below.  Not exactly the same results as in my real project, but very demonstrative of miscalculation issue in general.

    WinZip-ping the directory which contains the original image plus the Studio project file/directories results in a 7.41MB zip file.  Is there somewhere I can post or e-mail this zip file for you to unzip and try?

    Thanks

    Ok, while messing around with Photobucket tonight trying to figure out how to best help you reproduce the issue, I think I found the key.  It has to do with the size of the still image being put into the project.  I've been using the full resolution (4272 x 2848) images straight from my camera.  When I uploaded that same source image up to Photobucket in hopes that you could download it to reproduce the problem, I found that Photobucket automatically downsized the image (to 1023 x 682) when it stored it; I could no longer reproduce the problem with that downsized downloaded image.

    I have, however, worked out steps using this image where you can see the disc size miscalculation (although not by the exact same amount as in the project I referred to in my last post).  The steps are as follows.

    1. Download the image from here:

    [click to view image]

    2. Open the image in an image editor (I used Photoshop Elements) and resize it to 4272 x 2848; save.

    3. Open Pinnacle Studio.  Set the Project Preferences as described before:  HD 1920x1080/30p.  Also set the Default duration for Titles/Stills to be 5.00 seconds.

    4. Create a new project.

    5. In the "Show photos and frame grabs" tab, locate the directory where you stored the saved the image in step 2.  Drag the 4272 x 2848 image to the timeline.  It should have a duration of 5 seonds.

    6. In the timeline, highlight the image and copy it.  Move the scrubber to the end of the content (the 5 second mark).  Paste the image 11 times (for a total of 12 instances x 5 seconds = 1 minute of content).

    7. Select all 12 images and copy.  Move the scrubber to the end of the content.  Repeat pasting the minute of content to the end of the existing content.  On my system, here are the values that Make Disc / DVD / Best Quality shows as each minute of content is pasted in (first value is amount of actual content, second is the Settings - Approx. minutes of video on disc, third is disc-o-meter Available, fourth is disc-o-meter Used):

    1 min / 68 min / 67 min / 1 min

    2 min / 66 min / 64 min / 2 min

    3 min / 64 min / 61 min / 3 min

    4 min / 62 min / 58 min / 4 min

    5 min / 60 min / 55 min / 5 min

    6 min / 58 min / 52 min / 6 min

    7 min / 56 min / 49 min / 7 min

    8 min / 54 min / 46 min / 8 min

    You can see the general pattern here.  Picking up again at 22 minutes of actual content pasted:

    22 min / 28 min / 6 min / 22 min

    23 min / 26 min / 3 min / 23 min

    24 min / 24 min / 0 seconds / (Over) 13 seconds

    25 min / 22 min / 0 seconds / (Over) 3 min

    26 min / 20 min / 0 seconds / (Over) 6 min

    BTW: toggling from Make Move back to Edit and then back again makes no difference.

    Please give this a try and let me know whether you are able to reproduce the issue.

    Sounds like you might be on to something, or at least narrowing it down. 

    Tonight, I will check my projects, that are having this 22 - 23 Minute project length available space issue, and see if there are high resolution stills in the project.

    Thanks for your efforts ttylew

    Raff_Uy: have you tried reproducing this issue using the 7 steps laid out in post 400324 (http://forums.pinnaclesys.com/forums/permalink/400324/400324/ShowThread.aspx#400324) above?  Let us know what you find.

    ttylew, you can use MediaFire.com to send files send your project stx and data including the files you used.

    I check your screenshot you got a unknown Media on your Make Movie settings did you noticed that?

    I've uploaded the zipfile that I referred to in Post 400320 above to MediaFire.com; I think it's telling me that the URL to access the file will be: http://www.mediafire.com/?zi2gznkrzfk

    However, the 7 step reproducing instructions that I gave above in Post 400324 don't even require the zip file, as there is a link there to an image (hosted on Photobucket) that you can use to build an even simpler project from scratch that will demonstrate the issue.  If you want to go that route, you can also skip steps 1 and 2 by using the IMG_8337.JPG file from the zipfile uploaded to MediaFire.com, as that was the original 4272 x 2848 image file that was uploaded to Photobucket.

    The screenshot shows "Unknown Media" because I didn't bother to put a DVD+RW into the drive for the test, since we've already established in Post 399479 that the calculation problem exists regardless of whether you are doing a normal "Create disc content and then burn to disc" or a "Create disc content but don't burn".  You can see from the screenshot that the "Target Media" is set to "DVD 4.7GB", and that is what the space calculations should be (and are) being based on.  If it makes you feel better, here's a screenshot of the same project, same screen, when a DVD+RW is in the drive Big Smile[click to view image]

    Please keep us posted on your progress.  Thanks!
