"Insert chapter marker in title..."

Post » Sun Dec 25, 2011 5:42 am

I have come across an error message I have not seen before in my other projects - it says:
"Insert chapter Marker in title..." and the name of the clip that I used. I can't seem to find any way around this. It is obviously trying to find a point for the layer break, but regardless of how many chapters I put it between the time it states, it still won't let me burn the DVD.

The only thing that may have something to do with it is the chapter markers in the time line have little yellow exclamation marks on them, but there seems to be no way of finding out what this means.

Do you have any suggestions?

Many thanks,

You didn't say but I presume you are trying to burn to a DL DVD. Is that correct?

If you don't have a marker in a suitable place for the layer break, DVDA will prompt you to insert one in a certain range. That has always worked for me, so I don't know what could be wrong.

Were the markers created in Vegas or in DVDA? If the former, do you get the exclamation mark if you insert a marker from DVDA?

I just ran into this. Move the marker one frame one way or the other and the yellow mark should go away.

Note that if you're burning a disc from a prepared folder, the chapter mark for the layer break has to be placed BEFORE you prepare the folder. DVDA won't recognize the marker if you place it after the folder is prepared.

I know it seems like common sense to insert the layer break before the folder is prepared, but sure enough, I had to learn it the hard way.

I thought maybe this info will be useful to anyone who runs into the same problem

Thanks for your time,
