I am having AUDIO problems. I am trying to create a DVD from various AVI files using DVDMovieFactory Suite 3.5. I make the sequence, menus, various chapter adjustments, some nice background for the menu screen. Going to the final screen, I click off RECORD TO DISC and click CREATE TO DVD FOLDERS (so that I can preview it before saving it to disc). When the recording is complete, I view it with PowerDVD 5.0. While the Menu works perfectly and the image is beautiful, there is NO sound. I have tried everything I can think of but nothing seems to help.
The PROPERTIES of the subject AVI files are:
-Format: Microsoft AVI files
-Size: 358,354 KBytes
-Frame Rate: 25,000 frames/sec
-Duration: 2482 seconds
-Data Rate: 142.78 kbps
-VIDEO COMPRESSION: DivX 5.2.1 Codec
-Attributes: 24 bits, 640x352
-Total Frames: 62,064
-AUDIO COMPRESSION: MPEG Layer-3
-Attributes: 48,000 KHZ 16 Bits, Stereo
-Total Samples: 119,162,880 Samples
My Project Settings are:
-24Bits, 704,480,29.97 fps
-Video data rate: Variable (Max 3000 kbps)
-LPCM Audio, 48000 Hz, Stereo
I have tried all three audio settings: MPEG audio, LPCM, and Dolby Digital Audio and gotten the same silent results.
I have tried with and without DO NOT CONVERT COMPLITANT MPEG FILES
I have tried with and without TREAT MPEG AUDIO AS NON-DVD COMPLIANT
I have experiemented with every possible setting I could think of to no avail unless I missed something.
I did some searching online and found some kind of walk thru wherein I'm supposed to go to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\Ulead Systems\Ulead DVD MovieFactory\3.0 and open a DVDMF program of some sort (ini I believe)and change/add some text and save. However, this file does not exist (there are two similar ones but not what is mentioned), so no help there.
I have downloaded the latest patches (for MovieFactory 3 (I could find none for 3.5). The previous one patched okay...but the latest one (DVD MovieFactory 3.0 DL Support Pack (Release Date: 2004/11/03)) failed to install since it "could not locate DVD MovieFactory 3." So I'm assuming this isn't a patch for 3.5.
I have downloaded and installed AC3 filters I found by doing a Google.com search for AC3. No help there.
I can't think of anything else to try, though some investigation seemed to indicate that an AC3 download (at an almost $50 cost) may be needed. Not liking such marketing schemes I resist that option until I have exhausted all others.
NOTE: NORMALIZE AUDIO when checked causes an error message: "CONVERT STEP GOT SOME PROBLEMS! (4524)" [Grammatical errors included]. Followed by "UNSPECIFIED ERROR, REPORT ID: 0x800411 ac(4524)" I don't know if this relates to the problem.
The only other thing I can think of is to convert every individual AVI file to, say, MPEG 1 and start over but that would take MANY HOURS as well as a loss of quality.
