Hi Lordsmurf,

I was reading your comments on using MainConcept Reference for encoding MPEG-2 files for DVD.

I've been trying to use MainConcept Reference to encode a 7:30 short film, from Cineform avi 1920x1080 to MPEG-2 / DVD. But a strange thing happens -- the video will stop playing early -- say at 7:12 or 6:30, etc (it varies on encode), yet the file will continue "playing" till 7:30.

When I import the MPEG-2 file into Adobe Encore, the video file shows up as a 6:30 or 7:12 length file. But if I drag the end of the file out past its "end point", the following footage appears (ie, after 6:30 or 7:12). Unfortunately when I burn a disc image, the DVD only plays up to 6:30 or 7:12, then the video stops while the sound continues to 7:30.

I figured I'd try asking you about this, as I can't find anything online about it. I ran an encode with Adobe Media Encoder (guessing Mainconcept SDK?), and while it worked fine, it looks really terrible compared to the Mainconcept encode -- much darker and poorer colors. So if I can't get Mainconcept to work, then I guess the next step could be an encode with HCenc? Thanks for any advice you can offer!!
