    Unable to Export To Disc in S21

    A have assumed that S21 would be more or less the same as the earlier versions regarding exporting but perhaps it is not. I attempted on three occasions to export an un-rendered disc project and each time it stopped exporting (froze) at precisely the same point (when reaching the first title transition). I allowed it all to render before again trying to export the Disc, and this time it got slightly further before freezing. There is nothing odd on the timeline in either of the positions at which it froze. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and has anyone else experienced the same thing?

    Is it the same if you export just the image without burning the disk ?

    Re: Re:Unable to Export To Disc in S21

    I was able to export the same project to an Mpeg2 file but have not tried simply exporting the image only. Should I try that?

    Yes. I'm trying to figure out if the failure happens during the image creation or the burning step.

    Will let you know how it is going in about 5 minutes Yann. I am currently saving the footage to my hard drive from my card reader in case of further problems.

    If the image creation went fine, you can burn it using an external tool like Imgburn (free software).

    Hi Yann. It seems to be doing it for create image only. Has gone well past the earlier freeze points and is 'racing away' with the match footage.

    I would rather not have to Yann if I could avoid it. Is there no way of burning the image within studio as I could in the earlier versions? Might it be possible at least to save the image and then burn in Studio 19?

    EDIT Just remembered Yann that I have aleady created one DVD. I always burn a re-writable first in order to run through the match to make notes as to the timings of subs, goals, yellow cards etc. As it has worked once it ought to again?

    Yes, you can burn it in PS19 as well. There is a burn image feature in Studio's disk export tool.

    Re: Re:Unable to Export To Disc in S21

    Hi Yann.

    The simplest way in the end of doing this was to save the project in S21 and then open it in S19. Once opened in S19 selecting the export to disc option works fine and it is busy creating the disc. There must be something within S21 that in inhibiting this process - perhaps a minor bug. The only inexplicable thing is that if I had imported my raw footage MP4 clips into S19, it would jerk at each of the joins (four clips per half because of FAT 32). However, opening the project after butting them together in S21 means that they play fine. I don't understand why that should be. The clips still do not look quite right as the icon at the start of each clip is green rather than a picture.

    Yes, something is wrong in PS21 disk export feature. Corel knows it.

    Great Yann. Let us hope they fix it in the next patch along with the voice over.

    Re: Re:Unable to Export To Disc in S21

    I have been able to export to disc using PS21 (create the disc image as a VIDEO_TS folder); out of habit I have never used Studio's built-in disc-burning (in any version) as I always like to inspect the created image before burning. I have some home-made disc menus and, depending on the length of the button caption text, Studio sometimes has a strange idea of which buttons are "adjacent" when using the DVD player's arrow keys to move around the menu (if I find anything that "isn't logical" I use PgcEdit to put it right...). Then I burn with ImgBurn, and create an ISO image too to keep as a backup.

    The "funnies" at the joins between files are a known issue that can occur with any file-based camera - some editors are better than others at handling it...

    The camera shoots as a continuous "transport stream" (succession of frames), As you shoot, the capture "container" (for my AVCHD camcorders it's a .MTS file) fills up and when it reaches the 4GB limit for FAT32 the camera closes that one and opens a new one. However, when it does so, it doesn't take account of where the "key frames" (H.264 equivalent of MPEG-2 I-frames) are in the video stream, and can put the "key frame" in the first file and subsequent frames that depend on it into the next file. If the editing program isn't clever enough to work out that the two successive files are related and came from the same continuous shoot, it thinks that the second file has a corrupt beginning, with some junk before the first "key frame" (and probably just throws it away)! The green poster frame you see in PS21 might be because PS21 doesn't fully understand that the subsequent files are continuations of the first one (and tries to make the thumbnail from the first frame in the file - which may not contain a whole frame's worth of information).

    Another trick to work around the "continuous shoot split into multiple files" issue (I have used in Studio 14 + later versions) is to "stitch" the files together using a copy/b command in a DOS command prompt - for example:

    copy/b 00000.MTS+00001.MTS+00002.MTS  BigFile.MTS

    Same problem here.

    I like a lot in PS 21 but I wish the export was as before.

    Re: Re:Unable to Export To Disc in S21

    My experience  has been that when trying to burn an PS 21 image file on PS 19, PS 19 crashes and in the end I removed PS 21 and had to restore PS 19.

    I have reinstalled PS 21 and created a separate PS 21 folder.

    I read somewhere that it could be a problem of where PS 21 store the data

    Also I wonder would be better to put the storage location on separate hard drive?

    Any advise?
