View Full Version : avi2dvd and scenarist 3 problem: ...file has place holder!

24th May 2004, 22:56
I've been trying to encode a 2 avi movie into 1 dvd using dvd2svcd feature avi2dvd and scenarist 3.0 pro with selectable subtitles, and all went fine till the part of the dvd authoring, where i got this strange error message from scenarist, saying that the pulldown video cce ntsc.mpv has a place holder and does not let me create the vob's.

I also tryed to make the image with tmpgdvd author and when i selected the video file and the audio file it told me that the dvd is oversized. Could that have anything to do with it?

So my question is:

-what the hell am i doing wrong?
Please help!!!

Have a look at my post in this thread (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=75230&highlight=placeholder) explaining what a placeholder is. Probably, you need to specify location of some of your files (namely, pulldown video cce ntsc.mpv) in Data Editor.

It has nothing to do with the project being oversized. Of course, you'll have to reduce its size if you want to burn a DVD. You will probably have to re-encode your AVI files.
