I'm transferring the VRO file to the computer hard drive.
What happened, or is happening...(2) things.
1.) Something corrupt in the first few seconds of the raw VRO file opened from the RTAV folder of the PC hard drive where it was copied. TMPGEnc DVD Author won't read the file. If I use Womble to cut a few seconds off the beginning, then it will read. Womble has no trouble reading it, but you can see some type of jitter in the opening seconds of playback.
2.) This I only tried once...but I used shorten segment on the E80 to trim the beginning few seconds (instead of Womble), then continued using shorten segment to cut out the commercials. When I read THAT file into Womble, it was all screwed up. Dragging the timeline slider would progress seemingly normal, up until I reached a point where shorten segment had cut out a commercial, whereupon the frames that had been flashing by before now by froze on a single frame. Releasing the slider, it would jump forward in the timeline, whereupon playback resumed but without the audio. I exported that file as an mpeg, and upon playback in an mpeg player, it was again...all screwed up, the time-counter was counting minutes as hours or something similar, rolling over, freezing, stopping play.
I haven't reproduced it. I'm trying to avoid the recurrence, not sure what's causing either problem. Just wondering if I should not be pc-editing a VRO file that's had shorten segment applied???
