  1. Not a silly thing to do, Mike. (Should be a regular thing rather than last resort, though. - smile - There's nothing so secure as a full system backup) That's what I would have done if I had Power Director, but since I was without I've had to leave it to you gents.

    MyDVD alternatives...

    I don't think that you'll get an argument from anyone here, Mike. Alas, when Corel acquired Roxio it seems they decided to replace the fully-featured Roxio software with their own 'lite' version. Perhaps it made sense to them? Time will tell.

    I should have listened...

    Glad to hear that worked, Mike.

    Did you buy it directly from Roxio? Unless they've changed their policy recently you can return it within 30 days for a refund without having to justify the return, if you bought it directly from them.

    Exporting splits

    What sort of file is it, and Which module of Creator NXT 5 do you have the file loaded in?

    Roxio Media Import ATSC (New TV Standard)

    That seems a bit sexist, however I'll assume the male-only reference was inadvertent. You have already read in a thread you contributed to some months ago, that we on this board are not Roxio Technical Support nor are we employed by Roxio. We are enthusiastic users who come here to try and help each other. Roxio people don't often come here. With that in mind, you may wish to send your message to the Corel Corporation where there is some chance it will be read by the people you're addressing, rather than posting it here where it won't be seen by them. Alternately, if you are still using Roxio software after getting your refund in 2014, you can send your message directly to the Roxio people by clicking on the Feedback button in the software. Regards, Brendon.

    Cannot add .jpg files to a video production in Videowave

    That's true about standards, but in most cases other people have already made the choice for you. In this case (as Jim pointed out) if you're making a DVD you're limited to 720 x 480 (NTSC), or for BD 1280 x 1024, so regardless of the native size of your image the software is going to resize larger images down to the standard size losing some of the original detail. (In some cases if the native size is too large the software will crash and give you a black slide.) The Microsoft article was interesting, but if they're going to offer varied export resolutions in Powerpoint why not use a button instead of a registry hack? Remember that increasing the export resolution doesn't increase the detail, just makes the lumps bigger. Regards,

    Cannot add .jpg files to a video production in Videowave

    Thanks, that seems a useful site. As far as pic size goes, please remember that picture size is constrained by the DVD or BD standard. So no matter what your source size is, Videowave is forced to downsize the images to the appropriate standard dimensions. That's something we can't change. Regards, Brendon

    Cannot add .jpg files to a video production in Videowave

    Nope! Running Videowave from NXT 6 Pro, and results are the same. Samsung uses a not-very-common Intel-type EXIF marker when it inserts metadata into photographs taken singly, but uses the more popular Motorola-type EXIF marker in its 'Burst mode' photographs. (I don't know why they use two different 'standards') Videowave in NXT 6 Pro still recognizes only the Motorola standard marker, and rejects JPGs with the Intel type marker. Re-saving the rejected JPGs with common editing programs will reset the Intel marker to Motorola. Regards, Brendon

    Cannot add .jpg files to a video production in Videowave

    Hello. This problem with photos taken by the Samsung Galaxy has been dealt with before. I'm surprised that the other members here didn't remember it. It's a matter of the EXIF markers saved by the Samsung Galaxy in photographs it takes. The earlier thread is found here, and the information you seek is very near the end of the thread. Best regards, Brendon

    track info

    Um, you're not exactly giving much detail there about your problem Caliber. What are you trying to do, how are you trying to do it, and what are the results you're getting please?

    ISO Burn Issue

    Oops, Mick. 2CH files are used in SACD audio, and I think your friend has given you an SACD ISO. Super Audio CD is a disc format which was introduced in 1999 and was going to replace CDs eventually, except it flopped and died, and is nowadays used only by a few "audiophiles". (See the Wiki HERE) You need a special player to play SACD ISOs, as they use a coding called 1-bit DSD while CDs use 16-bit PCM. Creator 2016 might burn the ISO to disc, but it can't convert DSD to PCM for you. Someone might know of a separate (commercial?) converting software. Regards, Brendon

    When you rename a folder to old you end up with the renamed version only. This procedure is usually intended to get a folder out of the way so that you can install a new one, so after the new install you will eventually end up with two folders. It's not clear what you mean by the comment about 2011 and 2018. What are you trying to do?

    ISO Burn Issue

    So, Mick (clanp), We are all wanting to help you, and are waiting with 'bated breath for your replies to the questions in tbrewst's first post. -How was the ISO made, and what contents (file extensions) can you see if you open the DVD with File Explorer? The suspense is building, so please come back and reply to him. (smile)
