Compressor 3.5.3; can't submit (March 31, 2018 01:43AM) Trig Simon
Hello, Ken,
I am using FCP7, sending to compressor 3.0 as I have been for the last few years.
But, today, when trying to submit a batch from Compressor 3.5.3, the submit button is greyed out.

Does anyone know of a reason why this occurs? I have tried sending from a previous job that worked in the past, and get the same results.

Thank you,

Trig Simon

Trig,

Did you try exporting out of Final Cut as Master File (not compressed) and then putting that into Compresser?

Well, I didn't do that, but I did export as a QuickTime movie and dropped that into DVD Studio Pro. I am surprised that it fit, since the file is 125gb. But when putting in the Studio Pro timeline, the finished DVD is 3.8gb. Too much available space for me, but if I can't get your idea to work, I at least have something. I do have the markers in place already.

So, next step is to take the 125gb .mov file and put it into compressor and see if I can boost it up to 4.7gb.

Thanks, Phil.

Trig,

It's been awhile but when I tried to compress and make mp2 and ac3 files in DVDSP4, I usually had problems. Better to get the "heavy lifting" done in Compressor and drag those files into DVDSP4.

Are you exporting a reference movie? try a self-contained movie.
BTW don't baulk at a double layer DVD, the only trick is the layer-break point.

Yes, always export a self-contained movie.

Try Compressor repair.
