I have a 34" LG 21:9 monitor and it's set to 3440x1440. I have font scaling at 100%. Thanks for your suggestion. I tried a number of resolutions, signing out between each, and still the same problem. I also tried running it on my laptop screen directly (Lenovo P72) and the same issue happens. This wasn't an issue with the previous build. Curious to know what has changed?

UPDATE: Just installed the May 2019 1903 build of Windows 10 and that has solved the dialog box problem.

Is it now possible to make a 5.1 surround BluRay using an AC3 file from VP17 created with AC3 Studio?

Previously DVDA would only accept a 5.1 AC3 created with AC3 Pro - and Magix Vegas did not include it. It was possible to copy and rename the AC3 Pro plugin from an old version of Vegas, but that doesnt work now, it crashes.

On a quick test Optimise Disc showed a tick by audio but still said "recompress required - Media not compiant with disc format". even though project properties are the same. Confused.

However on a quick test it does appear to work but I'd like to know if, officially, that is correct.

Still seeing the same issues I've seen with every previous release of DVDA7 ...

1) any button action placed on a video track works ONCE ... and then if you navigate back to that video track, it never works again (there are not button(s) selected when you return to the video. Eject and reload the disc, works fine. Works fine in the Preview, doesn't work in a real player.

Can be replicated easily : create a new project with a single menu, with a single button calling the video ... put a button on the video calling the menu. Now burn the disc and play on a real player ... selecting the video from the menu plays the video. Hitting the button on top of the video sends you back to the video. Now select the video from the menu again ... the button on the video no longer works.

2) projects with multiple AVC video tracks do not load in DVDA7. They get to around 65-67% and stall forever. Same project loads in DVDA6 without issues.

Can also be replicated easily : add enough videos that it stops loading. Should be around 8-10.

Sadly have to second above post re AVC files. I'm not willing to go back to DVDA6 and painfully rebuild the menu. Will instead painfully redo files using Mainconcept. Here is some info that may shed some light on this long term, continuing forever, problem: "Just as additional information: DVD Architect is a superior software for DVD's. However it has some problems with BD's. When I load AVC-media files, it always stops loading, if the size of all loaded media files goes above 9 Gbyte. I do not know, whether this value is a fixed value, but after this amount of loaded media, I cannot load any additional file. DVD Architect stops in the middle of the import process." However, my usage faithfully dies at the same time and place having loading only a little more than 2GB. In terms of number of files, I get 7 in - always - and die with the 8th - always.

Hi

. . . . problems with BD's. . . . AVC-media files. . . . if the size of all loaded media files goes above 9 Gbyte. I do not know, whether this value is a fixed value. . . . I cannot load any additional file. DVD Architect stops in the middle of the import process." . . . . dies at the same time and place having loading only a little more than 2GB. In terms of number of files. . . 7 in . . . . and die with the 8th - always. . .

AFAICS there is no limit to the number of files I am currently working on a project with 23 AVCHD files totalling ~16GB - no issues apart from the slow loading of the project which takes about 50 secs.

The only difference I have, is that the AVCHD files are exported from Magix Movie Edit Pro 2020 with a custom export format so no recoding is done by DVDA .

AVC export parameters I am using are:

  1. Video
    Bitrate: 18.000 Mbps
    AR: 16:9
    Resolution: 1920*1080
    Frame rate: 25 fps interlaced, TFF
     
  2. Audio:
    Format: AC3
    Bitrate: 192 Kbps
    Sample rate: 48 kHz

Are you running low on free disk space, memory or Windows resources?

Does the 8th AVC file load correctly into a new project?

Reposting with accurate info. No, the 8th AVC does not load at all into a new, separate project. Load just fine as M2V. Plenty of disk space; upwards of 1.5GB

Hi

Is there any difference between the 8th AVCHD file and the previous 7?

A MediaInfo analysis will show if there are any differences between the 8th file and the others.

If you want to post the results for the file that does not load and one that does copy the MediaInfo results from the Text view in the program.
