Wife picked up Tears Of The Sun SE for me recently (killer flick) and I began happily encoding it to mpeg-2 to dump onto my HTPC. Right at the beginning of the movie, there are ~three logos, then the movie starts with a shot of the rising sun. I previewed the AVI project in TMPG and it plays this first part fine. However, after encoding, I played the mpg2 and it starts the first logo, stutters a few times, skips the rest of the logos and the shot of the sun. I jumped through the movie and everything else looks great, looks like mainly a problem with the logos and the shot of the sun. I used the NTSC DVD Quality CQ 100 template, Highest Quality. Set the top four stuff as usual. Any ideas? I usually like to leave logos in as it looks cleaner and more "professional"...also, the music in the movie actually starts during the logos. Anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance. LA.
