      When burning a simple video from Final Cut Studio to iDVD, one of my mini-docs implodes at exactly the same timecode. The audio is still there, but I get a pixilated picture on what looks like a waffle board grey background. When I play the same video in QT in Final Cut or just on a QT Player, it plays fine throughout, but when I encode, it implodes!
      I’ve tried deleting the file from the iDVD document, then reinserting it and re-encoding, but it still happens.
      The project info window says I’m nowhere near the limit of data on the DVD.
      I’m flummoxed. It’s ruining my reel.
      Thoughts?
      Thanks,

      Also try using different blank media and burn at a slower speed.

      My guess is that the footage that is tripping up contains some fast motion.

      Thanks for the reply fellas. Unfortunately, much of my raw video for that piece has been moved. So my timeline is no help unless I spend hours rebuilding it, and I’ve tried using other discs (non-Lightscribe), and I get the same result.
      What’s frustrating is that I’ve put this mini-doc on other reels with no problem. Only recently do I get this grey washboard thing. And the video isn’t super memory intensive. It’s just a priest standing in front of a window talking to his parish.
