Hi,
I am using Creator NXT pro 2 with Windows 10 64gb.

I can create movies in video wave, no problem, but when I go MyDVD to burn the movies to create a BluRay disc, when it gets to the encoding movies stage, it hangs it cashes or hangs.
I have tried this 14 times now and sometimes it gets to 7% before this happens.
I tried encoding the movies first. Same problem.

I re-installed the software. Same problem.

I then created a new user, so nothing conflicted with the software. Same problem.

I am now at a total loss, please can anyone help?

May or may not be your problem?

 

Creator NXT3 and Creator NXT4 are W-10 compatible products.

Ah, Thankyou, as I was waiting for a reply, I saw that I had a discount code from Roxio to upgrade to NXT4 pro, so have downloaded this and fingers crossed.

Must admit, I didn't realise that I last purchased an NXT in 2012, whoops! Not as up to date as. thought.

Will post again if I have success - hopefully not to say that I haven't.

You may be able to pick up NXT 3 at a good discount (ebay, Amazon, etc)..  The MyDVD in NXT 4 has been simplified and may not be useful for your projects. 

 

Be advised that Roxio/Corel has a 30 day refund policy and if you want to burn blu ray you need to purchase tan additional add on.

 

Did NXT 2 ever work for you on the W 10 computer?  Usually it works for a short time and then fails.

Thankyou. I will buy the plug in, it's very cheap, so job problems with that.

As for our question about NXT2, yes it worked once with Windows 10 about 3 months ago, and now as you correctly said, it has failed. But at least that part, thanks to you, has answered my frustration.

I've just upgraded from NXT pro 2 to NXT pro4, and have tried to create a DVD menu. I no longer am able to resize the chapter names, or add a second line saying something 'click here'.
Also with the older version I could have animated menus but can't now.

Does NXT 3 give me the functions I had in 2 and compatible with Windows 10?

Why do you feel you have to ask the same question at least 3 times?  Once is enough !   I answered in one of the other posts.

Sorry about the question being there 3 times, I kept getting an error telling me to try again, and when I did twice, the question appeared 3 times, so sorry, I tried to delete 2 of them, but couldn't see how to.

I'm so grateful for the expert advice I am being given, the last thing I want to do is upset the experts. Sorry again

One quick question, and I realise that no one can see into the future ...

If I use the 30 day money back guarentee for 4, and purchase 3, which will give me the functions I had in 2 (in 4 btw, all of the transitions and animated titles before each film, and stabilisation I had done in 2 did not copy) hopefully.

However, at some point I would probably have to upgrade to 4 or a newer version when 3 becomes obsolete, and be back to square one, so ..... Does Roxio give any guarentees on how long a version of NXT will last, especially as Microsoft have said Windows 10 is their last version and will just continually update it?

Unfortunately most Roxio projects created in one version will not work in the next version. This is one of the biggest gripes about Roxio. You would at least think that project files from one or two versions back would work in the newest version.

Always finish a project in the version you started in.

 

We are not Roxio support so have no ideas what Roxio plans in the future or how long a version will work. Versions previous to NXT 4 are not compatible with Win 10.

 

NXT 2 project files will probably not work in NXT 3

Ah, that is sad news, as when reading Roxio's info etc, it said that you should complete projects in your old version before using them in your new one.
To me, this meant that I got my project ready to burn, which I did in the old version, rather like editing a photo in old software in the way you want as you may not be able to edit it this way in the new, but you would be able to print it in the new version as per the old but not make changes to it.

I couldn't go any further in NXT2 after completing the project, it was ready to burn, so by putting this into NXT4, I would have expected to be able to burn like for like, but not to edit. Hope that makes sense.

So basically what is being said is that all older projects I have are defunct and I can never burn them again and have to start from scratch? If so, not happy at all.

Can anyone confirm though please, if they have used NXT3 and successfully transferred projects to NXT3 and have been able to burn like for like with an editable main menu, copy my transitions and stabilisations over?

If not to my above question, has anyone any ideas how I can burn an NXT2 project successfully onto BluRay? The project that I have spent many hours on is important family memories, and is very precious to me?

Well, that depends on what "state" you "finished" them in with the previous version.  If you created a folder set or .ISO image file out of MyDVD in the older version, those folder sets or image files can still be written to disc.  If you "finished" with the Videowave/MyDVD project files, then you're correct, you'll likely not be able to re-open those project files.  

 

So a good "finished" state, is to write a folder set or .ISO image file, from which you can always burn more copies.

 

For your old projects, one option would be to consider going back to a previous version of Windows where NXT 2 can be installed and run, and get those project to the folder set or image file.  (NXT 2 will run in a VMWare Virtual Machine running Windows 7, if that helps.)  (You can still buy PCs with Windows 7 on them too.)

So, and I'm getting confused and probably upsetting the Digital Gurus on here, sorry ...

1. If I re-install NXT2 on my PC and run as Windows 7, can I leave NXT4 on the PC running as Windows 10, so are you 'allowed' to have two versions of NXT on one PC and choose which one you want to use, even if I set up a new user account?

2. The projects from NXT2 are saved not as .ISO files, but as a fully rendered MP4 file, so should this work using this in NXT4 to burn as the fully functional NXT2 version?

Sorry I'm being a thicko but I am at a loss and gradually getting annoyed at Microsoft for this Windows 10 annoyance and Roxio as a company for seeming to become like Apple where you have to continually upgrade in order to use a system that you've previously paid a lot of money for.

Sure, if you have separate boot partitions, (and install partitions) there's no problem having an NXT 2 installation on one, and an NXT4 installation on the other.  But you'll need a "real" Windows 7 install, not just a "run as" in Windows 10.  I don't think NXT 2 will work properly (or for long) trying to set it up to "run as" Windows 7 within Windows 10.  (Sorry, I haven't used Windows 10, so I may be mixing terminology here.)

 

Your MP4 file is only a video file, it won't contain any chapter marks, nor is it in the final rendered video format for a BR disc or a DVD.  The final rendered format for BR is .M2TS, and an MPEG2 format for DVD, and those need to go into the proper folder structures for their associated disc types.  

 

You could use your MP4 file as the base for an NXT4 video project, and then just create your chapter and menus as desired.  Keep in mind that the version of MyDVD in NXT4 is much simplified from what was included with NXT2 and NXT3.

 

Does that help?

 

As for the upgrade annoyances, backwards compatibility with old projects is nothing new for Roxio, and goes back to very early days of the product, when it was called Easy CD Creator (before DVDs).  And it's long been the case that new versions of Windows require new versions of software.  I'm still running Windows 7, and plan to for awhile yet.

Well it looks like I have a partial success, that I want to share in case it is of any help to anyone else ....

In NXT2 I had fully rendered MP4 files of my project, so in NXT4 using the plug in, I started to create a Blu Ray, using their standard templates, but my own background and Roxio's non changeable font and non changeable colours, boring but perhaps Rixio might learn one day that when you upgrade you want improvements, not backwards steps.

Anyway, I then imported my fully rendered NXT2 MP4, and was able to burn the BluRay with all of my original animated opening titles, transitions and stability. So, I'm a 99% happy person.

Thankyou so much to everyone who have offered solutions for me here, I only wish that Roxio themself would reply to E-mails, but that's another moan for another day.
Thankyou all
