I have a simple Bluray project with just 1 menu and 3 sub menus.
Just one problem, when I go to Prepare disc, it wizzes through and gets to 67% in only 45 seconds. And then it gets held up on "Preparing compilation for 00003.m2ts" and takes 50 minutes to prepare for a 30-minute movie. Mind you, it's not rendering, it appears to be structuring the file.
- All video files are prerendered in MPEG-2 matched with the framerate, bitrate, and container type in the disc project settings
- In optimize disc, the only alerts are that the audio for the video files will need to be recompressed. This happens in merely seconds. The other alerts are related to the menu media but those are just still images so I don't think those are holding it up
- I have a very powerful computer - 8-core Ryzen with 32GB of RAM running on an ultrafast M2 card
Any tips on how to speed up the preparing compilation process? I would like to test a few versions of the movie to make sure everything is working good as I build out the menus but this is an excruciatingly slow process.
