Toast is not off the mark. Source file sizes do not mean very much as the time length of the video is more important. A standard DVd can only hold just hold about 60 minutes of best quality DVD video while DL DVD can cold under 120 minutes. You can of course squeeze more video pn the DVDs but only at a lower bitrate which means lower quality. The program works correctly in this regard and there is nothing to fix. The compress to fit option is basically meaningless since automatically reduces the bitrate to fit the DVD
This is one of the basic editing steps. On the timeline, simply position the cursor at the beginning of the segment you want to remove and click on the "split" icon (just to the right of the Trim icon). Then move the cursor to the end of the segment to be deleted and again click the Split icon. Then simple delete the segment between the splits.
How did you get the video from the camcorder to your hard driv? You say you "captured via Roxio". What does that mean exactly?
Since your video is recorded on the camcorder hard drive, you do not need to "capture via Roxio". You simply use Windows Explorer and copy the video from the camcorder to your storage hard drive.
Running NXT7 on Win8.1
I just tried to replicate your problem following the steps you outlined but I have no distortion in the audio. Everything works just fine.Used a 30 minute mp4m 1280x570 video file.
The created audio proxy file plays without distortion in several players.
Did you start your project in Videowave? This is where you can rotate your clips clockwise or counter-clockwise. You then render your project to a mpg file which you then load into myDVD for DVD creation
I don't understand what you are trying to do? please explain with more detail. Using fading transitions (is that what you mean by "blending transitions in and out) work perfectly in NXT 6 (or any Roxio program)
As sknis has posted, you have provided very little information. Exactly what is your project, how long in time, at what point do you get the error? What program from the NXT 7 suite are you using? Are you able to render your project to a mpg file? You have to give us some information
The Roxio device does not "require" a S-Video connector you can also use composite (yellow,red and white) cable. Since you ordered the coaxial-to-composite adapter, then you are ready to go. Doesn't that VCR have composite output?
What is the make/model of the VCR? Have you read the Manual on how to hook up the components?
Getting a bit lazy if 3 or 4 mouse clicks is too much for you .
As far as I know there are no settings that will give you the defaults you want. THe Cyberlink of course appears first because the drop down list displays the imaging devices alphabetically. The same for the video output format. You can drop the Cyberlink WebCam from the list by disabling it via the Device Manager/Imaging Devices. It will save you one big mouse click
You cannot transfer the Roxio program from one computer to another, it has to be a complete new install. That means you have to use the original install program/files and have the serial number handy when installing on the new computer
A 4.7GB DVD can only hold about 60 minutes of best quality video. You can get just under 2 hours on a DVD but the video quality will be greatly reduced and almost unwatchable especially if fro low quality VHS video
