    Flipvideo 720P - Want To Make Blu-Ray But Fails

    Ha ha ha .... no worries, man. You are right in that it does no good to bash a video card maker here. The 17 years I have of building PC's has taught me that what is the leader today will be the trash tomorrow, so yeah, my guess is next go around ATI will be back on top of the video card world. Not sure I would/could agree with you on all the hardware being equal though. But again, a new leader emerges every few years. By the way, choosing between Ford and Chevy is a lose/lose proposition! LOL Again, thanks for helping me out on this. Appreciate all the suggestions.

    Flipvideo 720P - Want To Make Blu-Ray But Fails

    Hi folks! Yes, been a few months, but wanted to put in an update here. After many many attempts and lots of other issues I RMA'd the new laptop from HP. They attempted to fix it but when it came back it still had the same problem(s). I got them to replace with a newer model that had just come out with AN NVIDIA video card, thankfully, and with that, Roxio works perfectly. No need to convert source videos. Flip Video, Panasonic 1080P video, Canon 60D 1080p video, etc. all work with simple drag and drop as they should. My suggestion, as always, is to avoid ATI video cards. The hardware might be good but their driver (Catalyst Control Center, etc.) packages have been terrible for many years now. nVidia, with the CUDA hardware, works very well for HD video renders. Able to render 3.5hrs of 720P/1080P/60fps source mixed video to Blu-Ray in under 5 hours. Not bad. Thank you to Jim and cdanteek for your solutions. All were great attempts at overcoming what was either a hardware or driver issue that HP would have needed to address had they stuck with the crappy ATI video cards... but alas, they wised up and went with nVidia on their performance laptops. Great choice.

    Flipvideo 720P - Want To Make Blu-Ray But Fails

    Hi folks. Had to take a few days away from the video world but back on it again. Today I tried to create an image using new source video from my Panasonic HD 1080p camera (AVCHD video) and again, same result. Tried without and without menu (BluRay) and with and without menu (AVCHD) and all failed with the authorscript error. Is it possible my laptop's video card or driver could be the issue? It is a new HP DV6 with the switchable graphics Intel/AMD 7690 2GB version. The laptop itself is i7 2860 12GB RAM. The hardware is plenty powerful. No mods or anything, again, laptop was bought for this purpose. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Well, I just tried to burn with the no menu option but got same result... failure at the 10% mark (on video 1 of 10). Do you think a reinstall of Roxio or a complete install of the 2nd DVD (sonic fire, reallision, etc) would help any? Do you think it could be an ATI video driver or switchable graphics card issue?

    Hey, man, no need to get testy .... I was just providing whatever information I could. In response to your statements: "HurricaneGMS we are here to help you with Roxio products!" I know, and thank you. "I don't care if it works with DVD Architect." I was pointing out that it works in DVD Architect only to show that the files (source) are otherwise fine, my laptop is otherwise capable of working with other software and rendering high end video, and in the end, my burner is fine, too. Believe me, I don't want to use DVD Architect! I only have it because it basically came with my burner. Even with that I still bought Creator Pro 2012, so believe me, I want Roxio to work for me. "Why it is up-converting is because your creating a Blu ray disc and that standard is 1920x1080 in anyone's software. " That is not entirely true in that a blu ray can contain/play 1280x720 source video as well, even though its intent was 1080. Even with letterbox, etc. and the black lines, they are part of the actual encode so it can be 1080 but show black lines, etc. In this case, what actually happened was my source was 720, it said it was upconverting to 1080, but on playback, it did 720p and no black lines. So it did not, it would appear, really upconvert. So I am not sure why it had that as part of the logging. "If your PC gets a BSOD doing a windows update you have other issues than Roxio software problems." Well, true, but nah, it was not the laptop's fault really (other than your typical issues with Windows). I googled it and found Microsoft and various forums letting people know that several critical updates went out that were causing problems for various machines. The laptop I have is about 2 weeks old and I've installed Roxio and DVD Architect on it and done nothing else with it. It is an HP, so yeah, it has lots of HP's bloatware. In any case, no need to get hostile ... again, was just trying to help you help me by providing as much info as I could. I am a professional senior IT QA Analyst/Engineer, so I find myself explaining issues with overwhelming detail in everything I do. :-)

    Ok well tonight I opted to allow Windows Updates to install ... that was a huge mistake. Crashed the laptop totally and after several attempts at a Restore Point recovery, I am finally back online. Nothing like getting BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) on a brand new laptop with all of 2 programs installed! Anyway, the video render setting is HARDWARE. I did the graphics test, too. It does not provide a result exactly put did not throw any errors and was running about 335 FPS. Guessing that is ok! There is also a checkbox on the enhance with nVidia Cuda/Ati Stream box. Not sure if that was there before I ran the graphics test, though. In related news, the one I created last night (totally done in DVD Architect) worked great. Took 4 hrs to create the ISO and another 30 mins I guess to burn to Blu Ray, but it worked beautifully. 60FPS. Only strange thing was that it was telling me it was upconverting the resolution to 1920x1080 when it was creating the ISO (which I did NOT want) but when I play it, the video is still 720P. In any case, it is perfectly smooth as it should be, so it kept the 60FPS, which was most important and my regular set top Blu Ray player had no problem with it (nor did the PS3). Tomorrow will try some more within Roxio. I am hoping to get it to work in there as it is a much more user friendly program than Sony Vegas and hopefully FASTER, too, but we shall see.

    Sorry about double post. This forum is tough on my phone!

    Back at work so will check tonight. I did another attempt last night using only Sony Vegas' Dvd Architect and having it do the convert and ISO in one step. Took about 4 hrs but did give an ISO. I left most defaults but did not realize it went to 1080 so likely that is reason for slowness from the 720 source video. I left it 60fps which was my goal since 24fps looks terrible.

    Oh not sure but whatever default is for that setting is where it should still be. Never touched it. Will check tonight.

    You are correct. LOL Remember above I had said I kicked off another attempt using the VideoWave solution that was deemed 110% effective. It was a lengthy process so it was still going on while you tried the sample video I did. It then failed. I have now tried the sample of the dog and it failed, too. Screen shot sent so you can see. Sorry for the confusion.

    Here is a screen cap of my own sample that failed. I did a simple new project, picked the video and said Burn and chose the folder set option. It failed almost immediately.

    Hmmm.... wonder if it is video card or driver related? Unfortunately I could not getan nVidia card like I see you have which I always prefer to Ati. Meantime mine just failed again. Got to 77%. Gonna try to do my sample file i sent. Can u tell me what settings, menus, etc you used?

    Ok can you walk me thru again the steps from start to finish of your 110% solution? There are some options I am seeing, or not seeing, and I am not sure I am in the right place, etc. I launched the VideoWave program, did the import and it just put the files in what is I guess a new Production. I did not save or anything. From there I just did the Output/Export and it asked if I wanted to save, which I did. Then it launched the Make Movie dialogue and I selected Blu Ray authoring as the purpose, Video File Quality as Blu Ray HQ, and a file export location. I clicked Create Video File and it is now doing a new Render which I called testExport. Looks like the end result will be testExport.mpg and looks like this will take about 35 mins to do as it is a 40 min or so video. Of course it is combining them into 1 file, which is not what I would want at the end of the day really, but just for this test, it is fine. I believe this is the exact process I followed earlier that failed in the same way in the MyDVD, but again let me know what exactly I should be doing. When this is done I believe you say I just start a new project in MyDVD and pick the new testExport.mpg as my media, right? Thanks!!
