  1. SP2 will not install

    Frank, you may have a problem; you already have SP2 but your screenshot indicates it is not up to date. SP2 is the latest update. I ran Defender and Kapersky and neither saw a problem. The update is from the Corel/Roxio program itself.

    Please remember that this is a public users forum and not tech support. Please do not post ticket numbers (we can't look them up) and never post product keys because others may use the keys to activate pirated software. Just to make sure, were you disconnected from the internet and have your antivirus turned off during the install? Why did install from the disc not work error messages. Did you try copying the disc to your computer and install from there?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. Did you move anything on your computer programs since you installed the program. The main (snap) screen is just a series of hyperlinks to the individual programs. If you moved the individual programs or the splash screen, those links are broken. I don't know if a reinstall will fix this.
  6. Just keep reminding yourself that you can get only about 1 hour of best quality video on a disc. More will make the already bad video look poorer. You can use double layer DVD and get a little less than 2 hours. If you have a blu ray burner, you can put more standard video on the disc but you need a blu ray player to play it. If you do not plan to use discs, consider memory stick, they are inexpensive and you can get them in larger sizes. I cannot remember the last time I burned a disc but I have put video on many memory sticks. Also plan ahead, break up your project into sections with menus like by year, by type of activity (scuba, vacations)etc. It seems like you have a major task ahead of you so taking so time to plan may save you time in the end.
  7. Set Windows to 100%; it looks like you have it higher (125% ?).
  8. JPEG clarity in Roxio NXT Pro6 VideoWave

    Sorry for butting in. I saw this thread and had those questions. I will now butt out. I think I'm missing something here. Remember that the image resolution is greater than any video unless you are going to 4K (or above). You cannot compare the images from a photo viewer to an image taken from a video. It looks like you are making a standard definition (720 by 480) video rather that a wide video - high definition. cd is on the right track. See his question above and your response. Could you be more precise? Also, previews are not the same as a finished video clarity. Create a short video project with some images and output it to an ISO file. Play the ISO file. You may have to create a virtual drive. Does it look better there ?
  9. Capture Quailty

    DV is digital video AVI which is uncompressed. Use it if you have the hard drive space. It will be easier and faster (generally) to capture and edit. DVDHQ is mpg2 which is compressed. It captures in the format that is used on DVD discs. The HQ is the bit rate of the video; the higher the better. If the tapes are bad or your computer is underpowered (e.g. i3 or i5) then there may be more bad spots to edit out. There may be some out of sync audio because your computer is capturing, encoding and trying to keep up with the audio at the same time. If you don't have a lot of hard drive free space, you may want to buy a USB portable hard drive to 1) move some programs and other resources to that other drive and 2) Have enough free space for the capture. Make sure your system drive is cleaned of old programs and junk files and defragged (if it is not a solid state drive).
  10. Capture Quailty

    What are you using to convert the analog signal to digital in order to do the capture? Stay with the original resolution of 720 by 480 ( or the equivalent). The quality of the capture is also dependent on the condition of the tape and the player. Search on-line for what you can do to clean the player and the tape. If you are hands on, here is an article that may help on the player. Also if you see a warning on one of your home made tapes, it usually means that that part of the tape is in bad condition and giving the impression that it is a copy protected commercial tape (some are and some are not) Some TVs will upscale the quality but don't expect high definition quality.
  11. Video Wave 15 hang ups

    You are lucky that it doesn't just crash. You posted in the Creator NXT 3 part of the forum. If you have that, it is NOT compatible with Windows 10. See this. Some versions of the programs seems to work with W10 for awhile and then get screwed up. Perhaps a recent update to W10 caused the problem.
  12. me too

    Sound like and reads like you posted the problem before. If you can get the program to run, Please start your own thread and include the dxdiag.exe on your computer as an attachment. You should be able to do that. You should also be able to create a new question. Please also explain what you are experiencing in more detail. Does any part of it install? Are you trying a full install or a selected install? Remember you can run as many repairs as you want but you had only 20 installs. That should be enough for anyone who is not doing a lot of beta trials or who is trying to give the program away to friends (not that you would). Also remember that it doesn't work well if 1) you install with the antivirus on, 2) try to install to a drive other than your system drive or 3) try to run the program on a network drive. There is no personal information in the dxdiag text file except for what you have named your computer. Without more information from you, you are crying into the wind. I may be wrong but I don't think that Corel will put a lot of effort into improving this program. I think the base was for a very old version of Windows. They will not spend a lot of money on upgrading the program. They will do upgrades for Pinnacle and if they can be easily modified for Roxio then it is a possibility.
  13. Screen Recorder error

    For the benefit for others, would you please detail the steps you used to change the system audio input to stereo. I only have stereo so I can't detail the steps. This is for W7 but I image that it is the same for later versions.
  14. Screen Recorder error

    There have been several issues with this part of the program. On the Corel site, a similar problem was solved when the user changed from 5.1 AUDIO to 2. stereo. To test yours, turn off the audio capture to see if the error message goes away. There are other posts that you can search for using any search engines. Did you try to do a repair on NXT6 with your antivirus OFF? Remember that repair is not counted as an install. The number of Installs are limited to prevent copying and selling copies of the program. By the way, if you run a Windows dxdiag.exe on your computer, it will tell use more about your computer than what you post. There is NO personal information except what you named your computer. Just post it as an attachment See below.
