Hello! I'm having a problem while burning a disc on both Architect 6 and 7. While editing, everything is okay, but after burning onto the disc, after a subtitle is supposed to end, it stays on the screen until the next one replaces it. Is there any way to fix this?
It looks like it is set up correctly. I know Version 6 had some issues, but I am not sure if this is one of them. I stayed with version 5.2 because 6 was very buggy. Hopefully someone else may have some other ideas. Sorry I couldn't help.
This issue, raised recently by @Shadow in the general discussion about Update 3 (build 100), is very probably the same old bug discussed here. It only affects some players. Unfortunately the screengrabs in my laborious workaround were lost when the forum moved from Sony to Magix. I probably still have them on disc and could probably try and find them and replace them in that comment if anyone really wants (send me a PM or tag me by typing @Hope).
Here is my information regarding this critical issue, that I've sent to the former Sony and now Magix support several times during the last 4 years with no fix yet:
"Each subtitle event blinks once when it ends and then stays infinity on until the next subtitle event is reached, which is most likely caused by the second redundant "set field indexes" command which DVD Architect places after each subtitle stop command on the muxed disc.
The normal command line after a subtitles end time is reached should be (as outputted by other professional software like DVD Studio Pro and Scenarist):
Set field indexes Stop
DVD Architect uses the following command chain in the muxed disc:
Set field indexes Stop Set field indexes
This is a DVD standard violation and causes most Blu-ray and some DVD players to show each subtitle event infinite after it stops, until the next subtitle event is reached."
