Cannont Find Required Files In Nxt5 Content

Question

Hello.

 

I had to upgrade to NXT5 because Roxio 2012 wouldn't burn DVDs with Windows 10 on my computer. I'm disappointed because I agree with other users that NXT5 is inferior to Roxio 2012 when using MyDVD. However, it was necessary in order to finish projects.

 

NXT5 will open old movies I created using Roxio 2010 and 2012, but I have a consistent problem with a pop-up that says it can't locate required files and it always says the same message: "C:/Program Files (x86)/Roxio Creator NXT 5/VideoUI/Content/Overlays/Banners/Orange Band...

 

I know what to do when it can't locate files that are in my personal files; like if I moved a photo or renamed a folder and it can't locate needed photos or videos. However, this message is indicating it can't find part of NXT5s content. It add to the confusion, I didn't even use the orange band overlay in the movie. That same pop-up comes up with every old movie regardless of which overlay I used. I do use overlays on color panels in every movie because I separate different scenes in the home movies with a color panel that says what the scene is about.

 

I tried to locate the missing content file, but it wouldn't find what it was looking for and took me to my photos folder. If I skip the locate missing files step, it opens my movie and everything looks fine on my color panels (no missing overlays), but it won't let me burn the project or output it to a video file. It won't let me do anything with the movie without first locating the missing Content/Overlays/Banners/Orange Band..

 

I uninstalled NXT5 and reinstalled it thinking something went wrong in the installation process, but that didn't help.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

In videowave right?

 

Are you just using videowave to view the movies?

Do you get the error message when you are in myDVD?

I don't believe the error has anything to do with your movie but is related to a menu creation in myDVD.

 

Could you list step-by-step exactly what your are doing?

 

What NXT 5 version do you have? NXT 5 or NXT 5 Pro?

 

What files do you have in the "..VideoUI/Content/Overlays/Banners?,,," folder?

Yes, I was just in videowave. I wasn't in MyDVD.

 

I think the error deals with the overlays I used on the color panels inserted into my movie while working in video wave. I didn't open MyDVD at all.

 

My version is NXT5.

 

I don't have any content in the Video/UI/Content...folder. That folder is part of NXT5 content. That is what is so odd about this situation. That is odd and the fact that I didn't use orange gradient overlay in movie and that is what they say is missing for any of the movies I open up.

 

I did a test run making a short movie using NXT5 videowave to create the movie. I purposely used orange gradient as an overlay on a color panel and then tried to reopen the movie. It opened up just fine and located the orange gradient overlay. The problem only occurs when I open an old movie made with Roxio Creator 2010 and then opened up in NXT5. NXT5 will open the movie, but won't let me do anything with the movie until I "locate the missing file" and I can't locate the missing file because it when I click for it to find the missing file, it takes me to my personal photo file.

Why do you watch the already made and output videos in videowave?

 

Try clicking on them and windows media player should open and play them.

Are you opening the actual 2010 made movie or are you opening a 2010 project file? The rendered movie would have a mpg or such extension. The project file will have a vsp extension.

 

If you rendered the movie in 2010 and then open that movie in NXT 5, there is no way that you would get a "missing" error message.

 

The orangeband overlay is in the same folder as the orangegradient overlay. In your first post you talked about the orangeband overlay

I'm sorry I wasn't clear. When I made the movies years ago, I didn't know to export them to a video file. I didn't have enough understanding of the program to know to do that. I saved the movie I made with videowave, but I had to open them through Roxio and they had to have the exact same pathway to play. I just now learned about exporting to a video file, so I have been exporting all 28 movies I've made over the years.

 

Most movies encoded just fine, but 5 had issues. I was able to successfully export 3 of them when I opened them with NXT5, but I had to delete the original color panels and made new ones due to the "missing files" prompt.

 

I'm guessing the problem stems from opening a movie with NXT5 that was created with 2010. I just wondered if there was some way I could fix the missing pathway because I might want to open up those old movies in MyDVD or videowave. I also save the MyDVD menus because it takes me a long time to create all the chapters and menus. It's nice to be able to open old projects, but with Windows updating and needing to update Roxio, it seems like that isn't going to be possible. Shame.

Forget about opening those old project files. They are not movie files, they contain no video whatsoever but are just roadmaps on how to create the final video file. They are just a list of the resources used (such as video clips, photos,etc)and the edits and so on you are making.

Roxio is terrible in that it does not allow older vsp project files to be opened in newer Roxio programs.

 

I always finish a project completely before updating any program

Thank you for explaining the project files in that way myguggi. I always thought of those projects as my actual movies...not as simply roadmaps. I just recently realized I needed to create a video file. Without basic understanding of how Roxio worked, I made a lot of errors. As my knowledge grows, I will make fewer errors. I will definitely finish a project completely by making the video file.

 

It is terribly frustrating that they didn't program Roxio to always be able to open older project files. It is also frustrating that I can't save the MyDVD menu as part of the complete video file. It takes me a long time to make chapter breaks in my movies and set up the menu because I change them to suit my needs. However, I can't save that menu as part of my finished video file so if I get an upgraded Roxio program, all that work is lost.

Bekki, you should have been around in the years that the Roxio software was actually good. None of the NXT versions are worth a salt.
