  2. Videowave hangs during rendering

    Did the repair first. Problem persisted. Then did the uninstall/reinstall. Problem persisted. I thought you might be right about that thing with a possibly corrupt file. So I re-did the whole production from top to bottom thinking something might have been corrupted during the save process. This time it worked. Now the problem is back after I created an entirely new production using none of the previous production's files. You're right, this is getting VERY annoying!
  3. Videowave hangs during rendering

    I try to make sure nothing else is running during that process. I do not have antivirus or email running. Sometimes an internet browser is open but not usually. I thought I had the problem solved yesterday because although the problem persisted after uninstall/reinstall, I had to redo the video production in its entirety and it worked like a charm. Now, though, the problem has started again using a different video production. I have a solid state hard drive, and I did try a defrag just the same to start off with.

    I'll second that suggestion !!
  5. editing an mp4 vidio with creator nxt 6

    Stick with Creator 2012 Pro under Windows 10. Many of us consider it superior to NXT 6.
  6. editing an mp4 vidio with creator nxt 6

    NXT 6 should be able to edit mp4 files. Did you try it using Video Wave. Were you able to open Video Wave (edit video- advanced)? Were you able to add the file to the timeline? Where did you get the file? Is it on your computer? Is it high definition? Make sure you have selected that as the format in VideoWave. Explain "edit video BY FRAME" If you want to really do this, spread out the timeline to see the file with more detail.
  7. hello, i just got creator nxt 6, pro... i had 2012 roxio pro and i was able to edit an mp4 file with it.... so far with creator nxt 6 i cant find a real way to edit the video format file... i want to be able to take the video and edit it by frame and change the audio... i tried looking for everything i can think of... but dont know what i may have missed please help... i have windows 10 ect...
  8. Videowave hangs during rendering

    Make sure you have lots of free space on your system drive. Defrag if you do not have a solid state hard drive. What eldse do you have running while you are encoding -- e-mail, antivirus, etc?
  9. Videowave hangs during rendering

    That is annoying... It can be one of the clips you are using is choking it but before trying to sort that out just try doing an Install/Repair. Just start the install and it will off a choice early in the process. Choose Repair! There is a 10 install count limit. But Repair does not count as an install. ~ should you ever exceed the limit, contact Roxio Support and have them reset it. Let us know how you make out with this
  10. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    My producer created the VIDEO_TS folder using Encore. I don't know why Toast didn't get it right. I'll spend more time on that some time.
  11. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    Do you mean you created a VIDEO_TS folder structure with something other than Toast? I didn’t realize you had that at your disposal. If I may ask, what software did you use? I’m glad you got it working. (I still think it should have worked with only Toast, though.)
  12. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    Sorted it. I was dragging the TS folder into the DVD video setup in Toast rather than the TS folder setup. The former obviously reworked the audio. The DVD now appears to have 5.1 audio. I'll now try it on a surround system. Thanks for all your help - I really apprecaite that.
  13. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    I have now tried a different approach. My producer suggested creating a VIDEO_TS folder which he has done. I've checked the VOB in there and it's 5.1 surround. I've attached a grab of the contents. When I dragged this TS folder into Toast it created a DVD fine. But when I open the VOB in his TS folder in QT it says it is 5.1 but in the Toast created DVD VOB it says stereo. See grabs. Any thoughts?
  14. Last week
  15. While rendering video files, the program just suddenly stops working. There is no pattern to how far along the rendering is; it can be as little as 12% complete or 84% complete. It just stops working and the Task Manager indicates that the program is simply not responding. It's never done this before & I can't think of anything done recently that might have triggered it off. I have tried shutting down & restarting the computer but the problem persists. Ideas? (This was previously posted in a different area for the wrong product, and is being re-posted here).

  17. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    Obvious wrong Space Remaining is usually fixed by trashing the Toast .plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunching Toast. ~/Library/Preferences/Roxio Toast Prefs~/Library/Preferences/com.roxio.Toast.plist
  18. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    It also says 4:32:35 for the duration of the m2v in Toast but the original MP4 that it came from is just over 15 mins.
  19. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    I am now following your procedure but having some strange behaviour. When I drag the m2v file (666.6 MB) into Toast it says that there is 12.52 GB on 1 disc so it won't burn to DVD. Any thoughts on this?
  20. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    No, upgrading Toast won’t help for this purpose, and will have the same result. You have to tweak your workflow: So you had Toast convert your MKV to DVD-Video. If you have Toast still open, you should have an .m2v in the Roxio Converted Items folder. Move that .m2v to another folder (to preserve it), e.g. together with your input files. Rename the .m2v and original .ac3 files so that they match. The base filename will be the suggestion for clip title in the menu, but you can change that manually later. Then set Toast up to make a new disc again. Add the .m2v file. Toast will know about the matching .ac3 file automatically. Set disc title, menu, menu title, clip description, etc. as your would normally. File > Save as Disc Image. Let Toast create a .toast file. This will be fast, as the conversion has already been done. Mount the disc image file as a virtual disc. Play in Apple DVD Player. Check for audio channels again.
  21. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    Thanks - very good advice. When I open it in QT and VLC (see attcahed) is says the audio is stereo so I guess it's been converted. In MediaInfo it says the orginal AC3 file is 6 channel. So it looks like Toast converted it. So back to drawing board. Do you think I should I upgrade Toast or use something else here?
  22. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    You can check the new DVD even before the surround system, as it will either be converted to stereo, or as original. Software can show you the audio channel layout by analyzing it. Open the VTS_01_1.VOB from the resulting DVD in VLC/QuickTime Player/Apple DVD Player/HandBrake/MPEG Streamclip/VideoSpec/iMediaHUD/MediaInfo or any other application that will show you details the numbers of channels for the audio. VLC (⌘-I while playing or paused) will say 3F2M/LFE; QuickTime Player will say 5.1 (L C R Ls Rs LFE); Apple DVD Player will say Channels:6 ; HandBrake will say 5.1 ch; MPEG Streamclip will say 3/2; VideoSpec will say 6 channels; iMediaHUD will say 6 channels; MediaInfo will say 6 channels.
  23. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    Thank you - that's really helpful. I didn't have a .m2v file so I used a piece of multiplexing software to combine my 5.1 AC3 with the video (from MP4) and at the same time strip the stereo track that was with my MPEG 4 file. I then took the resultant .mkv file into Toast. it has certainly created a dvd and it has video and audio but I don't know whethere it's 5.1 yet - I will get access to a surround system on Friday. Does my process sound like it might work?
  24. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    Toast defaults to encoding files to DVD-Video stereo AC3 (named ‘Dolby Digital’ in the interface). [I think that was true for v10 as well.] But … it will also accept AC3 files as-is, creating a loophole for including multichannel audio. The trick is (a) to set Toast to “never re-encode” and (b) to use DVD compliant files (.m2v video-only + .ac3 audio-only) as input. Just add the video part. If the matching audio is in the same folder and has the same base name, then Toast will include it. If Toast can’t find matching audio, it will ask for it. Toast will create a disc (or disc image) with the original video and original audio, preserving the 5.1 audio. If you don’t have .mpg /.m2v, then you can let Toast encode your input file into DVD compliant format, and then move the temporary video file (delete any temporary audio file!), which you can then use for the second run with your original 5.1 audio. (The temporary files are stored in ~/Documents/Roxio Converted Items/ .) Please ask if this is not clear. (And I hope I don’t have to re-install v10 to verify details on each step – if that even works on Sierra.)
  25. Toast 10 and surround 5.1

    I have Toast Titanium 10. I haven't used it in years because I don't tend to need DVDs any more. However I need to burn one with 5.1 surround now. Can I do that in TT 10. If so, what is the workflow? I have the 5.1 mix in various formats including AC3. Thanks.
  26. Combine Files using Roxio NXT 5 Video Copy & Convert

    That is the way it always has worked... What you want to use in VideoWave (Edit Video - Advanced) and import all the files you want to combine in there. You can even add transitions between them if it suits you. Then use the Export As button at the top and pick the format you are after.
  27. where is the burn button

    It no longer has the Send to DVD like the older version Now you have to output a file one of two ways in VideoWave, then manually add that file into MyDVD. You can use the Export As option. Pick the Purpose and note the file location: Or using the Prepare for Authoring option: Pick your Purpose and make sure you know WHERE the output file is going! Then open MyDVD, both can be open now since they are different programs. You add the file either using the Media tab in MyDVD and navigating to its' location: Or drag it in using Windows File Explorer: Try it out and see if you understand it. There is one other option and that is to use Video Copy and Convert to burn a Movie Disc.
