I am a newbie to Roxio Creator 2011 Special Edition. I received it last year and finally got it installed on my computer (Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit, Intel Core i5, 2.53 GHz with 6GB RAM). I did install the Service Pack update from September 2010.
I am converting VHS and Hi-8 home movies to DVD. I am importing the movies using the Roxio Video Capture USB with no issues (no single clip is longer than 30 minutes). In Roxio Videowave (Edit Video - Advanced) I can combine different clips together, add color panels, text, trim and am able to save a project (projects are less than 60 minutes in length). I was even able to output my first project to Roxio MyDVD, where I changed the menu style, titles and even added chapters. I was able to burn it to a DVD which plays correctly in my DVD player. I started my second project (a 50th anniversary party) in Roxio Videowave (Edit-Video-Advanced) and saved it successfully. I was able to output it to MyDVD, change the menu style and titles. I previewed the project with no issues and decided that I wanted to create some chapters because although it is all the same party, there are different points that I wanted to access easily through chapters. I added chapters (which I selected my self rather than have the program do it), just like in my first project. I previewed the production and MyDVD freezes when it tries to access the chapter menu.
I deleted the production and tried creating a new production and importing the project (rather than output to MyDVD). I deleted everything and recreated the project and production. All is fine with MyDVD until I add chapters to a production. It freezes if I try to preview the production. It freezes if I try to change the chapter titles. It freezes if I do anything AFTER adding chapters. Without chapters, MyDVD does everything it should. I don't have any issues with the first created production - I can preview it, I can change chapter names, etc. I am only having issues with a newly created production in MyDVD.
I tried repairing Roxio Creator 2011 Special Edition. I uninstalled and reinstalled it as well. What is going on?
