DVD studio pro 4.1.2 - problem menu appearance

I am working on DVD studio pro 4.1.2 on mac...
All media files and project files are on external hard drive.
I created my own project with new manes designs.
It was working fine so far, and the problem now is lke this (sorry i don't explain it in the most professional terms):

can't open my last updated project... the software is working but nothing is coming up.
So i opened an older version... and it came up... but IT DOES NOT SHOW ME ANYTHING ON THE MENUS THAT WERE DESIGNED, NO PICTURES NO BUTTONS (HOW DO YOU CALL THEM? TEMPLETS? STYLS? ) anyways, so i only see a grey menu, but i can see that pictures and audio and video files are linked to it in the side bars.... even the text... all .... BUT, IT IS NOT APPEARING IN THE MENU VIEW!

threw opening an old project i could open the recent one... but it is the same there... no visual view of the menus i worked on... although i see they are connected, and i can also do simulated preview, and the sound works, but black screen. then i can click "in the dark" there to change from menus (at the simulation) and it takes me to the videos that are attached, and they work...
But where is all the visual menu???

So, i have no idea what i did wrong on the way... the last time i worked on it, the project was finished, and i tried to do "build and formate" ... but it did not finish because of a "high bit rate" error, of one of the video files... so the process was not done...

now what?

with appreciation!

You need to convert the text file to a subtitle file, there is some additional free software doing this in a simple way.
I see if I can find user manual and downloads.

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

Export:error:real time c:\users\owner\appdata\local\microsfolder\render\my movie 848e009f\alternate\render\my movie 848e009f\dvd\studiosequence\temp' Help - what does this mean? What should I do?


Hi and Welcome,


If you are experiencing Export Errors using Studio, the following FAQ should help:
1. UPDATE TO THE LATEST PATCH:

Click here for the latest Studio 12 patch
There is no patch available at this time for Studio 14
2. ENSURE BACKGROUND RENDERING COMPLETES:

Allow the green bars that appear over clips that have had filters, transitions or other effects added to complete before going to the Make Movie stage.


3. ALWAYS REINCODE ENTIRE MOVIE

If after installing the latest version of Studio, the Export Error persists and you are attempting to create a DVD, then in Studio click on the Setup pull-down menu and select Make Disc. On the top portion of the Make Disc tab make sure there is a check in the box for the setting "Always re-encode entire movie", then click the OK button. Create the DVD again.


4. DELETE AUXILIARY FILES

Delete the auxiliary files before rendering. To do this, go to File >> Delete Auxiliary Files. This will bring up a window to chose which auxiliary files will be deleted. Select the option to delete the files for the current project. Once this is done, try to output the project.
