Using standard 'Send To" option from Xpresss Pro to Avid Studio/Encoding for AVID DVD by Sonic and then starting the 'squeeze' process in Sorenson Squeeze for DVD PAL (Small or large) I get the following error after the Squeeze timeline reaches about 60% complete:
"The movie file "" could not be found. Without this file, the movie cannot play properly"
I am also getting a MetaSync Publisher error that says:
"Error(s) were encountered while processing the specifies AAF file(s). View log for details"
The log (mentioned above) indicates an error opening the aaf file for the project.
When I cancel the first error mesage in Sorenson I then get another error saying:
There was a compression srror while compressing the file <filename>..Error:0x8003001e
I have updated the MetaSync Manager and MetaSync publisher to the latest version.
This has only occurred since installing the download version of Xpress Pro v5.2.4. I do not have the 5.2.4 install DVD with the new DVD creation software (still on AVID DVD by Sonic)) but I don't think that is the issue as I don't get even past Sorenson.
Any ideas would be warmly welcomed.
I contacted Sorenson about this error and they confirmed that they are having problem with Quicktime Reference files from Avid. The suggested installing Quicktime 6.5.1. That did not fix my problem, but I discovered a work-around, changing the field order to bottom field first allowed me to get past the error. This is odd because the footage that caused the issue was progressive (24p). I'm hoping that Sorenson has a fix in their next release.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those that get binary, and those that don't.
I had exactly the same problems ! Avid support was totally lost and unable to help .
Here are the steps I took, they are probably not all necessary, but at least the problem does not exist anymore.
I hope that this will help.
I was getting the same error and here's what Sorenson said:
This problem is an issue that is happening with Squeeze 4.3 and QuickTime 7.*. There are 2 solutions. The easiest is to import the mov reference file into squeeze and use the link audio function in Squeeze to manually attach the aiff audio file. (I added a screen shot showing where to get to the link audio option.)Once you have added the source file to the batch area right click on the file and select link audio.
Then search for the aiff file and select it.
If that does not work the other solution is to downgrade your copy of QuickTime to 6.5.1. To do that download the 6.5.1 installer from the apple website. Then uninstall QuickTime 7 and install 6.5.1.
We will have an update out later this month that should resolve this issue.

Additional support is also available on the Squeeze Forum
Sorry, but I omitted to mention that I ensured that the version of Quicktime is 184.108.40.206.The version of Squeeze (which is working) is 4.2.301.6.
Well, many thanks to Johnnytex! The tip of manually linking the AIF file worked a treat.
WRT the comments later in the thread that v5.2.4 is not cleared for Studio use, this is not the case. If you visit the download page for 5.2.4 it clearly states that it is compatable with Studio and I have not encountered any Studio integration issues with it so far (clearly the other bugs remain). The Sorenson issue is, I believe, exactly that and not related to 5.2.4 as I tried going back to 5.2.1 and the problem remained.
Again thank you all for the input. The forum saves the day again!
