Just Purchased 2012 Pro But...

Question

I was using Creator 2010 Plust, but I just purchased Roxio 2012 Pro in hopes that I could fix this problem:

 

I just cant find a way to get the output resolution as good as the source file, (which is an AVI generated by Carrara 8). This is for a business presentation, so fuzziness is not good. The result looks sort of "blurred". I need the sharpness of the source file. It plays perfectly in Windows Media Player, but the output from RP2012 Videowave is blurry, seemingly no matter how a I "render" it.

My system is :

Also, look at the sharpness of the Roxio generated text overlayed onto the video. It REALLY shows how the video is degraded. This animation will be used to promote a prototype, and I need this for a projector presentation from a laptop, so from a video file. Please help!

Since you have not told us anything about your VW render setting, it is hard to offer any solution or recommendation. An "avi generated by Carara 8" is also not much information about the quality of the source.

Thank you for your fast reply! I apologize for the lack of information, I know from reading the other posts that is frustrating too you, and was unintentional.

 

I have tried:

 

DivX HD 1080p@30fps

DivX HD 720p@30fps

Mpeg High Definition 1080i

Mpeg High Dfeinition 1080p

 

I am new to this, but find the capabilities of the software to be wonderful. I just want to stop the video from degrading.

 

 

As far as information about the file(s) generated by Carrara, I know they are uncompressed and there are four clips, because it will only render about 1/4th of the video without locking up, and the video is only 1min20sec in length. Each clip is about a Gig or a little less. They look SOOO sharp when I play them with Windows media player as individual clips, but when I render from VW, I lose that.

 

Is there a preferred format that I shold render from Carrara that is best to provide as a source for VW?

 

Here are the ouput settings I have used in Carrara, and some options in the dropdowns for what types of file to render:

Still trying to understand the Source file??? Are they Antimated GIFs?

 

Your "size" should be the same as your intended Output! The 1000 X 750 is about as far from a Video Standard as you can get :o

 

DVD's are 720 X 480 & HD, like Blue-ray, is 1920 X 1080. Stick to these sized otherwise there will just be too many left over pixels when converting to Standard sizes ;)

 

Have you actually burned a disc yet? (RW discs are perfect to testing)

 

Could you post a sample file where we can download it and try it out? Sites like UpForDown are good ones.

I was making the size so large in order to get high resolution when viewed. I will try to make it the size you suggest and then get back to you. I understand what you are saying. Once I try it with a known standard, I will re-evaluate. Thanks!

Dear Guru,

 

There is still some rendering problem. This time, I used Carrara 8, (as before), to render at 1280 X 720, an uncompressed AVI. I then loaded that clip into VW and rendered as Windows Media Video 9, 1280 X 720 VBR.

 

post-100879-066951700 1324047230.jpg

 

Note the loss of red in the rendering, and the loss of the richness of the blue. It seems I am not having detail problems, but richness, and/or color problems.

 

I need to get this animation into VW, interspurse some clips of real-life video, then render it all. This video will be used for a grant application for the ammount of $1,153,000. (Literally, the SBIR grant, and I have a good shot at it!)

 

The crisper the animation the better. I considered using Carrara to generate the final rendering, but then cannot put in real-life clips. I am uploading a file to where you suggested in a few minutes. It will be called "HELPMEGURU".

 

I am at the your, mercy, oh digital one.

Sorry Guru,

 

did not get the file name changed. I am logged in to UpForDown as Inventison. How do I make the file available to you?

 

It is called red brick floor blah blah blah.

I tried several variations of 'brick floor' but found nothing there...

 

If you log on and locate your file, you should be presented with these choices:

Copy & paste any one of those here, we can make it work ;)

 

A screen shot of your project while it is in VideoWave would be helpful.

 

Make Sure you are not using 'Auto Color'.
