In Timeline view, in VideoWave, double click on the video, and use the speed box to change the speed of the video.

In VideoWave storyline view, select the panel (image or video) and right click on it. You will see the pan and zoom editor. When that windows opens, you should see two or three panes. If you do not see the two or three panes, save your project, close VideoWave and EMC 9 and open VideoWave from the Windows start programs> menu. There is a glitch on the Home page for some people. This is the current work around. It seems to be related to the particular video card.

great....thanks guys!

 

sknis...i see you and i have the same vid card...do you have any trouble if you are set to hardware? do you get encoding errors in the burn process?

No problems. I have the latest drivers from eVGA, the recent DirectX 9c, have the antiailising and anisotropic filer set to program controlled, have defragged my hard drive before I start, checked for malware with a couple of programs, and go have a beer when the program is rendering to iso files for copying to my DVD blanks. What happens if you run the video test in MyDVD or VideoWave, tools, options? Does the dot stay near hardware?

 

If so, start looking at your project(s). There may be something in them that is causing the problem. Just to trouble shoot, in VideoWave, create your project and output it to a file. Select mpg2 for DVD best quality. If it completes with no problems, then you project is OK and you can use that file in MyDVD. If it hangs, note the time and see what is going on at that time. I could be anything from bad transition timing, bad audio file, a problem video file, etc.

Steve, are the drivers from eVGA different than the ones from the NVidia site?

Same drivers but sometimes one version earlier. I figured that if they post them on the eVGA site, they have been tested and "approved". The one there is 91.71; nVidia's is the same at this time. eVGA may take up to a month to post the newer drivers. Since the ones there are from November, they are caught up.

that's a good question....i updated my drivers from nvidia.....are they more up to date from evga?

 

when i run the test, it always defaults to hardware. actaully when i work in mydvd, i work with it set to hardware and have no problems with it bogging down or being sluggish. also, i do the same ritual that you described. i have the updated direct x9c, updated drivers from NVIDIA, defragged harddrive, shut down everthing in startup using msconfig, set to best performance.....re-boot and imediatly try to burn to ISO. if set to hardware i get an encoding error when it hits the menus. if i set to software and re-boot it does burn (finally got it to work!!!) i tried so many different things i can't tell you what worked. i will say this though....i have complex, fully custome menus.....background movie, buttons that i have modifed the size, text, location, highlight options......everything to make it the way i want, but still well within the limitations of the program. i also ignored the "menu is full, do you want to make another menu" command. i have 6 buttons on one screen.....but it does burn with software, just not when it's set to hardware....hey, at least i got it to work!

Good for you! Software render is slower than hardware so it may give your computer CPU use and interactions with other hardware time to synchronize with the encoding. :)

I know that nVidia has this Unified driver that is suppose to support most of their chipsets, but one user had to go back to a driver version that was specifically written for the Geforce 6 series. Don't recall which verison.

sknis....you suggested creating an mpg-2 in video wave.....i forget to mention if i try to create and mpg-2 best quality in video wave with the it set to hardware render....i get an imediate error...something about nothing between the pins? i've mentioned this before and several others we encountering this error....it's very criptic. however, if i output using software render, i get no problem. it's just frustrating because i have a good video card that will make life easier if this program would allow me to use it.

I don't know what the error is. Some cards just do not work well with this program. for some unknown reason. you are not alone.

Use your card's control panel and set the card for performance or best performance and the anisotropic filer and antiailising to software controlled. Run the video test and post the numbers here With mine, I get approx 520, 160, and 320 for the two tests. What do you get? The filter settings I came by via an accident, I uninstalled the program and my card kept defaulting to software. I know that it had worked in hardware before so I played around. I noticed that these setting had changed. When I changed them back, I got my speeds and hardware rendering back.
