    Create image rule of thumb

    Hi all,

     

    I am trying to create an image of a 3hr movie for BR dual layer.

    Just wondered if there is a rule of thumb to how long it will take to create an image ?

    The export seems to be fine, but once it gets to the 50% mark and says "creating disc image", I can not see any progress in the bar, or activity in Task Manager on any disks, but the HD light does keep flashing more than normal, but in processes shows Studio using 15-16%.

     At the moment it have been running for 6hrs

    That really sounds like the program has hung up to me. Check were you are sending the image to and try again.

    It has created a folder with the movie name, and inside that is a folder named "BDMV", and inside that another folder called "STREAM" which has the 2 menus in it at 6mb each.

    You should see some .m2ts files in this folder.

    Only the 2 menu's and they are m2ts files, I have now stopped it and will try again.

    3hr blu-ray could take hours to make.   At 50%, the video should be created, now it's making the final M2ts file to put on the disc. You need double the finished file size free space on the destination drive while it makes the image.

    Well I still can't get it to make an image, but it will burn straight to disk fine. It has also left a folder on HD at 34.7Gb.

    Can I use this to burn another disk, or should it be deleted.

     

    Why has it been left there ?

    Re: Create image rule of thumb

    What is the name of the folder and sub folders?

    Re: Create image rule of thumb

    Try playing the m2ts files in the sub folders and see if they work.

    The burning process can't be done if the image has not been created. This means that the image folder is actually present on your export disk.

    Does the burned disc play fine to the end in a PC and a DVD player?

    Re: Create image rule of thumb

    I've NOT let it run start to the end, but I have:

    1) Checked the menus and buttons go to the correct place and played, and they do.

    2) Checked the end of the clips finish and return to the menu, and they do.

    Sounds like the image is good then.  There were a lot of changes to PS disc authoring between PS18 and PS22.  All through PS21.5, I would revert back to PS18 to burn discs.

    Re: Create image rule of thumb

    So do I keep the folder it created (34.7Gb) and this is the image PS uses to create another disk, as there are 10 folders in side it, inc a M2TS file I can play on my pc.

    Re: Create image rule of thumb

    If you verify the folders are there(structure link below), you should be able to point PS image burn to the BDMV folder.
