Audio Cuts Out In Videowave

Question

I now have ROXIO Creator Pro 2011, coming up from 10. I had no issues w/10 doing the exact same thing. I would shoot short movice clips with my camera, and use video wave to compile them into a short movie combining the clips, to eventually upoad to Facebook. Worked perfectly. I purchased Pro 2001 and tried the exact same thing. I can click on one of the clips in VideoWave, and the video plays okay, but only after a few seconds the sound cuts completely out. That clip can finish and it might pick back up on the next click, but it too will cut out. When I output to wmv, and play the whole thing...same thing happens. Music cuts out. I have Windows XP PRO, 2GB memory. Any thoughts?

THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE

This does not happen, if outside of Roxio, I double click on the clip, it will play perfectly on the PC where the file is in Quicktime or Windows Media Player, it only happens within Roxio.

What format are the video clips? What camcorder?

 

Sometimes camcorder manufacturers tweak the formats for their use and you lose the audio. The3re have been several posts on this type of problem. Convert the videos to mpg2 (standard or high definition) using a third person converter. Go to cnet.com to download a free one.

 

Also please post a couple second cut of one of the videos on a free file sharing site like "UP for Down" so we can try it also.

Thank you.

 

Sorry for the second post. I thought I had put this is the wrong place, and reposted.

 

I'm using a CANON PowerShot SX20 IS camera, and it makes video files in the QuickTime Movie formast. I have Pinnacle as well, and put a clip in and converted it to MPEG-2 saved it, and drug it over then to Video Wave...it worked perfectly that way in Roxio. But it won't work straight in..or just moving the clip directly over to it. Which of course is a real bummer.

 

Had no trouble at all doing it with the older version 10.

 

Thanks again, and again my apologies for double posting.

Try this; it works for some people. Make sure you have Windows set to show known extension. You can do this in Windows folder view. Change the extension from mov to mp4. Add that to Video Wave. No promises that that will work.

 

Open a folder in Windows, select tools, then folder options. Go to the "View" tab and scroll down. Remove the check from the box to hide known file extensions.

That didn't work.

 

Here is an uploaded clip http://www.upfordown.com/pupload/view/47323 if you could and want to upzip and see how it does in VideoWave for you.

Thanks for uploading that video. I unzipped it and then added it to Video Wave and get the audio cut out that you get. I changed the extension to mp4 and that didn't help. I used "Any Video Converter" (free from cnet.com) and converted it to a HD mpg2 file. I added that to Video Wave and have all the audio.

 

You might want to try the "Any Video Converter" or other free program to convert it to mpg2. That converter is handy because you can do batch convert if you have a bunch of videos that you want to put into Video Wave.

 

I also used a different video editing porgram and it had no problem with the audio.

 

It is interesting to note that the audio is not lost when you add the mov file to Video Wave. It just plays several times faster ! The applause at the end of the video that you posted ended up about half way down the timeline. Listen closely and you can hear that the audio is running fast.

In VW, when you look at the audio track for the clip you see that it ends halfway. If you use VCC to convert to mpeg2, the audio also stops halfway. The funny thing though is the preview in VCC plays the audio completely.

Listen closely and you can hear that the audio is runing fast so that the applause at the end of that video file ends up in the middle. You can see it easily if you look at the audio wav of the native track. :rolleyes:

 

I don't know if this is for all issues related to the audio track - there have been several - or just this on on my computer. :unsure:

I get the same results as you in VW. The audio is definitely speeded up.

Again, many thanks for checking this out for me. It appears there is a work around like you said, but that of course is not very handy. I tried the whole process in Pinnacle, and it worked fine. I still prefer ROXIO at least when I was using the older version. I hope they may come up with a fix soon. I just got the newer Roxio version, so there will obviously be a learning curve for me. It was just very odd that everything worked fine in the older version.

 

Again, thanks for your help and confirming my delimena at least.

I had the same problem with the sound droping on my videos. I believe newer Canon SX and likely other cameras trigger this issue. My workaround was to use the free software that came with the camera to convert the video to a different HD format. This worked fine.

 

By the way, one feature of VideoWave that worked for me was to extract the sound from the video, and the edit the video, substituting pictures taken in place of some of the not so great video, but keeping all the audio, synchronized to the remaining video, and running "under" the photos. Almost easier to do than to describe, and the effect worked very well.

Just thought I would add a reply as I have the same problem with a Canon Powershot SD3500IS. It worked in 2009 and fails in 2011. Wonder if anyone has upgraded to 2012 and if it has the same problem. I am curious if there is an option somewhere we could be missing.

No options that I know of. You have a different thread going. Please post all the information there and read those replies.

 

You might ask Canon why they modified their format. I doubt that anyting will be changed in Creator 2011 because all efforts will be made to do any fixing in Creator 2012.

 

Actually the audio doesn't cut out; it is speeded up so it finishes before the video.
