Ok, I am brand new to this site--mac rumors--and I only came across it because I am desperate. Since I have looked around the site I can see that there is a wealth of knowledge that is shared and I am hoping someone out there can help me! Here is what I am dealing with. I am using Final Cut Express 2 to create movies (lenght about 1hr 35min), exporting them as a Quicktime movie, and then taking that movie to IDVD3. Now this had originally worked fine and I was able to create my DVDs. But some how within the last two movies I have created, after I created the project and then export as a QT movie--I will bring it to IDVD start the process of burning and it will go to step 3--asset encoding--and magically stop! There is no error # given and IDVD doesnt even say that it has stopped--it just does. Recently I have noticed that after I have exported as a QT movie, that I am unable to play it in the Quick Time player and it gives me an unknown error -2125??. I am a student at college and the creation of these DVDs has been a business venture and it is very frustrating to have worked so hard--just to see the most important step--burning the DVD not work. If anyone can offer any help I would appreciate it--if I am not in the right forum place...please let me know as well. If there are more details needed or anything else I would gladly work through it as detailed as possible. One last request--if there is any other way to take a final cut express creation that is over 1.5 hours and burn it to a dvd (I have been splitting the projects in half and using toast at this point--which obviously is no IDVD) please advise. Thank you, and I hope someone can help me.
