Author: Topic: Topic Icon Audio dropout in DVD SP3

I have just successfully burnt my first DVD in DVDSP3!

BUT (there's always a 'but', isn't there?)

The sound drops out for a few seconds about halfway through the movie. I have checked the original (created in FCP4) and there is no problem there, so something must have occurred during export to MPEG2.

The only thing I can think of that might be responsible for the problem is that the audio peaks round about the point where the dropout occurs (a character bangs on a door, so the dB level shoots up at this point).

Am I right? What can I do about it? Please help!

All right, problem solved, but only at the cost of huge embarrassment in front of the client (a forgiving sort, God be praised).

Went back to the FCP Timeline to find the audio clip in that spot had been deleted. Don't remember doing it, but I must have done; the pixies were exorcised in a complicated ritual some months ago.

Why isn't there a 'total arse' smiley?
