Videowave Scene Detection Does Not Work

Question

I have a 2.13Gb .avi file captured from my Sony DV camera saved in my media library. I right-click on said .avi file in the media library and select Scene Detection. A new window opens and I select Auto-detect now. About 30 scenes are created in the right panel. I click OK to save them. The window closes. I right-click on the file again in the media library and again select Scene Detection. No scenes were saved. I get the same result when I try manual scene selection using the Add scene button with just one or two scenes. There is no little down arrow on or near the .avi file. What am I doing wrong?

 

I have a Dell Inspiron 580, with 6Gb RAM, Intel i5 650 dual core CPU at 3.20GHz with 4Mb cache, Windows 7 x64, Nvidia GeForce 310 graphics card, 400Gb free disk space. I am using Roxio Creator 2010 Pro VideoWave.

 

Thanks for any help.

Wow, I am surprised byu the number of times we have to post this. You must be in the MyMedia view and NOT folders view..

I should have mentioned that I am in MyMedia view. I did find that info in the forums. Scene detection still doesn't work.

I am using Roxio Creater 2010 Pro VideoWave. Attached are three images - 1) Using Scene Detection to create one scene, 2) Exiting Scene Detection (no little arrow in video file), 3) Re-using Scene Detection - no saved scenes.

 

Thank you for taking the time to look at this.

First of all, don't select "All Media" when you are doing Scene Detection, switch to All Videos After all why clutter up the screen with unrelated files.

 

After your scene detection is complete and you have clicked the Ok to return to the media selection, click on the Folders tab and then click the my Media tab again. Do the clips now show the little down arrows? If yes the click a clip with the down arrows and another window opens with your detected scenes.

 

 

Also, if you close the "scene detection window and then select "add Video/Photo" and then select the "my Media" tab all the video clips will also show up

Myguggi, thanks for your reply. It got hung up in my spam filter and I just retrieved it.

 

I did what you said, narrowing the file types from All Media to All Videos.

 

While in Folders view I selected a clip and manually created a couple of scenes and saved it by selecting OK. I then switched to My Media view, and there the clip was, with the little arrow and the scenes intact. This time it did not crash, so that's an uptick.

 

Thanks very much for your time and patience to you and Skinis both.

Glad that you got it working.

 

I never use Scene Detection since it does not really save me any time. You still have to view almost all the scenes to make sure that they contain what you want to keep or to delete "sub-scenes" that you don't want.
