From: No Display In Video Trimmer

Question

Hello Everyone,

I am attempting to use the Video Trimmer found in Video Wave. I am using Roxio Creator 2010.

 

I have been using Roxio and editing my home videos for a couple of years now. I have a Cannon FS 22 camcorder. The clips are Mpeg 2 format. I started another project this morning, and after adding my video clips in Video Wave ( Edit Video Advanced Tab)I wanted to speed-up one of the clips. I double clicked the clip and brought up the Video Trimmer Window. I then advanced the speed to +4 and clicked the OK button. I ran the clip I had just changed and it worked great.

 

I then went to another clip that I wanted to do some trimming on, however when the Video Trimmer window opened, the preview screen was black. The start and end window screens on the upper left and right corners both had the proper pictures for the beginning and end of the clip, and you could adjust both start and end by the dial controls, but the clip would not play in the preview window, nor did any of the controls for it work.

 

I then "saved as" and closed the application, restarted my computer and went back to see if anything had changed. It had not. I then added a clip that I had captured from the T.V. (avi format)and much to my surprise the Video Trimmer window opened and the clip appeared in the preview window as it should and all worked fine. I closed the Trimmer window and then chose one of my camcorder clips and reopened it. The Trimmer window did not display the clip in the preview window.

 

The Trimmer works with everything I put in it except for Mpeg or MOV. files. I don't know what happened. It has always worked fine since I installed this version.

 

I would be very grateful to anyone that could help me. GRM

 

I'm using creator 2009 and I'm having the same problem.

I've seen this answered on other sites. But what worked for me was uninstalling ie9 and going back to ie8. It seems like there should be no connection between the two, but there apparently is. And unlike some of the responses, I love the trimming feature. I use Roxio frequently to create family videos.

 

A "Red Herring" in all this was that I also downloaded ITunes for a new IPod I purchased. All my Cannon G11 videos now have the .mov extension. I was sure that was the problem, but it wasn't and I am happily producing family videos again.

You let i tunes take over your file associations.

Although some people have had a lucky escape from this, many have reported that IE9 screws with the trimmer and going back to IE8 fixes that problem.

 

Given these facts, it seems that Internet Explorer 9 will be the first "usual suspect" to consider when you have this problem with the Video Trimmer - regardless of what "should" be.
