Yes and i'm goin to try to eplian it in detial. My projects would start encoding and about a minute to 3 minutes in the time left would not change and the progress bar did not move. i did not recieve error message. the program was running fine according to task manager. anyway i had to change the video setting here is how that is done. open nerovion add video or open a project now there is a button at the lower left that says "more" click it click on video options on the general tab I selected the enable smartencoding (This one, I believe, doesnt matter but i have it selected) on the dvd-video tab i reset the encode mode to fast encode(1pass) i also set the audio format to automatic this made mine work. i in no way am saying it will make urs work. I thought maybe my computer wasnt fast enough or had enough ram or something but i dont really know much.
