Scn 3.4 and LB

Hi all,

My project although it seems to be within file sizes
Scenarist keeps rejecting it as oversized.

I use 3.43 and I know it's buggy but I did not expect that much.
Here is a screenshot: http://postimg.org/image/8t9z8bqo1/

Any suggestions? Other than re-encoding the whole thing which will be the last resort.

Yeah, you might be over the total disc capacity after the image is created... I always hated that part of doing a dual layer disc. It can fail in one of three places- Making the mux, making the disc image, and making the replication image. I've actually had a disc get through the first two, but fail when making the final replication image, _that's_ annoying as it's already been through QC at that point...
As a general rule, I never exceed 95% on a layer, that usually works.
You obviously have to move the layer break back a little bit, which is likely to make layer 1 too big. Something is probably going to have to be encoded a little bit smaller...

Yes, you can't rely on the info about layers size until you do final image.
Your layer 0 is simply to big. Try moving layer break point or you need to do new encode.

Thank you guys, I was hoping to avoid re-encoding as changing the lb is not an option.
I remember older versions, 2.6, 2.7, were more accurate about this.
Anyway, I'll live with it!

Thank you both!

Use 3.3.2 which is the best version available. The layer break calculation is like previous versions (more accurate) and lots of bugs were fixed. 3.4 is full of new problems, and the layer break calculation is just one of those.
