    Is there a way to save the multi-camera project and continuing working on it (selecting cameras, keeping the sync of  the video streams) etc?  I have an hour long video that I did on two cameras and the amount of time to go completely through it will exceed the length of the videos by several multiples, plus I found syncing by audio very difficult with the two files and had to visually sync based on an easy to see event that's visible in both videos.

    Here is a link to the MultiCamera tutorial which covers saving a multicamera project

  2. It is going to take some time to do what you want and that has nothing to do with merging the individual clips. You are converting the HD mp4 or mts clips to mpg (DVD compliant format) and that will take a long time. Also adding chapter points, menus,etc will also increase rendering times.

    In my opinion that camcorder is overkill for what you want to do which is create DVDs


  3. If the camcorder records to individual clips (no matter what format), then those clips will have to be "merged" to a single clip if that is what you want. This can be done easily with Roxio. Roxio of course can also extract the "sermon" from any video file.

    It is not really clear from your post what you are trying to do.

    I'll have to plead the 5Th on that question. The friend passed away some time ago so I can't ask him where he got the download but, I imagine, he paid to download it from some site like eBay. There are many programs there that vendors advertise a digital download for. They place no limitations on the installations that can be made from that download.
      I have a hard copy of Creator 2012 that I bought some time ago and have since installed it on a number of different machines. I would think that the same would hold true for a downloaded version.

    But then, thinking is not my strong suit.

    If you have the serial key then you should be able to install it from CD and run it.

    In general I don't trust software downloaded from eBay or similar sites.

    I have been using creator 2012 and have experienced crashing problems with it on a regular basis. I followed all of the suggested ways to correct this problem including uninstalling and it reinstalling several times. Nothing helped. I'm considering buying NXT6. Is this a stable version?

    C2012 is probably the best Roxio Creator version issued. Without telling us what your actual problems are, it would be pointless to recommend anything.

    Please give some details about your project, source files, etc.

    Thanks,   heads up. Since I posted this i contacted roxio and they had me reinstall. They first had me erase all roxio on my laptop. I then shut off my anti virus and reinstalled roxio. It has worked great till this morning. I go to "Edit Video- Advanced". I then click on "add photo/video" and a timer comes up for a few seconds and my screen disappears. 

    Not quite clear on what happens. Does the "timer" appear as soon as you click "add photo/video" (the selection folder does not appear) or you select a photo/video and then the timer appears?

  7. I am not quite clear on what you are trying to create - a DVD or a BLue Ray disc? If a DVD why are you fooling around with a "BlueRay option?

    If a DVD then you will never get 2.35 hours of video on a DVD and have any watchable video. A standard DVD can only hold 60 minutes of best quality video.

    When you talk about chapters are you talking about Titles or chapters within Titles. Chapters and Titles mean two completely different things in Roxio (and video jargon in general)

    What are you trying to do when you are "editing chapters"? Moving chapters around on sub-menus is sure to create problems.

    That's what I am thinking now --- I might have to redo the whole project.   And it was a big one --- over 800 photos!  It has taken me 2 months to get it all put together, including the background music.  Can't still understand why I finished 3 recent projects and had no problem and with this one I'm having a problem.   Guess it is all this computer tech stuff :)  Thanks for the feedback and your suggestions.

    So have you searched your system for the dmsm file? Unless you deleted (have you checked the Recycle Bin) it it should still be somewhere in your system.

    I would never create a single project containing 800 photos, etc. I would break it up into smaller sub-projects which can later be merged into the final project. Working with smaller projects makes editing a lot easier and faster.

  9. I hope you are not burning to a DVD each time! Most of us first "burn" to a Video_TS folder or to an iso (image) file. If the burn is successful, they can be played with a software player like VLC. If you are happy then you can burn folder set or iso file to a DVD. This avoids creating a lot of DVD coasters.

    Is your final project only 28 minutes in length? If yes, why do you have 15 chapters? That would be less then 2 minutes between chapters.

  10. I don't think you can create an "Audio only" DVD that can be played on a DVD player. You need some video to go with the audio, ie, you have to create proper video DVD.

    clanp has to give a lot more information on his project. How was the iso made, what is in the iso?


  11. A google search seems to indicate that this so-called virus is only detected by Microsoft Defender. Microsoft states that it is related to the Cloud based Defender and is probably a false positive. It seems to prevent that installation of other programs as well not only Roxio
