DVD Architect burns only part of a rendered project was created by Don1937

I have rendered a project on VMP (Version 14.0 Build 148) and sent it to Architect for burning. The burning process appears to normal. However, when I play the DVD it stops at the same place each time I try (2:37 into the 40 + minutes). I have tried three different DVD's with the same result. This is the first time I have experienced this problem after many hours of making DVDs. I have attached a screenshot of the project with the marker on the spot where the the re-plays stop. Any advice would be appreciated.

The first thing you need to work out, is to see if the full video is actually being rendered before it gets to DVD Architect.
I strongly recommend you DON'T use the Send to DVD Architect function and do that step manually.

Step 1 - Render video file manually.
Go to Project/Render As
Select Mainconcpet MPEG-2 - DVD Architect PAL Widescreen video stream
Make sure to set the Output folder location before you start rendering - I recommend creating a new folder so that you don't get mixed up with older renders.
After the video is rendered, there will be no audio yet.
I recommend you test this video without audio first, and make sure it is playing all the way through!




Step 2 - Render audio file manually.
Go to Project/Render As
Select Dolby Digital AC-3 Studio - Stereo DVD



Step 3 - Open DVD Architect and start new project.
Go to File/New
Set to the same as you see here:



Step 4 - Import video.
Right-click Untitled and select Insert Media
Navigate to new video you just rendered with VMS and select it.
Drag video onto Menu screen.



Step 5 - Test video before you burn
Now is the critical test !!!
Press the Preview button and make sure it plays past the point that kept failing.
If it looks OK, you can go back and fancy up your Menu screen before trying a disc burn.
Hopefully it works now !

Regards
Derek

Thank you Derek.

All is working again. I have never had this problem before in all the years of working with VMP ( Hopefully, never again). However, I can now retain this information in my 'troubleshooting' folder for future reference, if required. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
