Hey guys, I rarely post because with only one exception, I have always been able to find my answer on these boards.
My Bluray disc is freezing at the same point every time, or close to it.
I used Vegas to render a project in AVC, I set the max bit rate at 40mbps, the average at something like 30. ( I did this after I was originally setting it EVEN HIGHER, but figured since DVD Architect could only max out at 40, anything after that was lossy.)
Then I set the bit rate on DVD architect to the same specs-still freezes at same spot
Then I used better quality blank discs-Still freezes at same spot.
Then I lowered the bit rate on DVDA to 35 mbps-Freezes at same spot.
Then I lowered it to 30mbps, and the freeze happens later in the film.
2 questions. What is happening? Can this be fixed? And two, if I lower the bit rate to 25mbps, would I be better off at 40mbps in MPEG2. Because MPEG2 works at 40mbps, but its a noticable step down in quality. Is MPEG2 at 40mbps > , = , < AVC at 25mbps?
Just thought of this? Could it be the layer flip? I am using the 50GB blurays, and when I lowered it to 30Mbps, the software tells you about how much of the disc you are using, and using that as a reference, they "sorta coincide?" I guess?
