DVD title problems

Postby videogeorge » Sun Jun 18, 2017 9:37 pm

Can't figure this out. Anyone ever have this problem?

When I create the title for the DVD and burn the project to a folder it changes the title by adding extra letters, numbers and symbols between the words of the title. For example the below title is OLQM, 1st Holy Communion May 13, 2017. It comes back looking like this:

OLQM
1st Holy Communion
May 13, 2017. Totally stumped...

Very strange. Never seen that.

Does it matter if you use a different font? (You can output your DVD files to a folder on your hard drive rather than burn it to a disc to check this. No use wasting discs experimenting.)

What font are you using? Which template(s)?

The templates were ocean breeze and blue sky. I was using Adobe Cashion Pro set at 48pt. It looks good during the preview but then I burn it to a folder, burn the disc, and in addition to the letters, symbols & numbers that get inserted the font becomes way over 100 and the text box dwarfs everything.

Two different templates and the same problems on each? That's very strange!

What happens if you use another font -- Arial, for instance.

Code: Select all
OLQM
1st Holy Communion
May 13, 2017.

That looks like carriage return, line feed (ASCII characters 13 and 10) which make a newline character. Are you trying to break the title over multiple lines?

Yes, 3 lines to be exact. It's worked successfully in the past although I've seen it from time to time. The secondary problem is that the font becomes extremely large just on its own.
