MEP Plus 18 - Sound Track Falls Behind

CarpentersMate wrote on 4/20/2019, 10:46 AM

Hi Gang

I'm still feeling my way around 18 - never had this problem with earlier versions. I've tried to export to H.264 MP4 several times. Each time I used a different portion of the same clip. And everytime the sound looses its sync with the video content. It seems to start out ok but then falls behind and then just drops out. I've got the content on the timeline with sound and video split (2 separate tracks). Makes no difference I still get the same glitch... Audio bit rate is default - there's nothing wrong with the original clip because I exported it just fine using MEP25. Any ideas? Thank You

Hi

Assuming you are still working with VOB's or MPG files on the timeline, then do the following:

  1. Select all the video objects on the timeline
     
  2. Right click on one of them
     
  3. Select Create (new) frame table (new)
     
  4. Save the project

This should fix the problem.

Try right-clicking on the video clip you want to export in the timeline and selecting 'Create new frame table' at the top of the list and see if that cures the problem.

Hi John - CubeAce (Nice to see you)

I tried that with several exports and its not working. This particular piece of film is a QT file 720x480. 😧

Additional research: Discovered MEP18 doesn't seem to like QT files. It just won't export successfully. However if I convert a VOB to an MP4 then there's no problem (the export completes successfully). More to come ...

Have convinced myself MEP18 simply will not process certain QT files reliably. I've resorted to converting any QT files to MP4 for reliable output. Fini ...
