    Irritated

    I am irritated with Roxio. I have had an audio issue with MP4s from the camera that we haven't figured out (static and nothing else), but working fine in other programs (including Roxio's) I saved the audio in Goldwave, muted the native audio, and added the redone audio (which plays fine), but when I try to output a new MP4 get the following message: "Error an error occurred during rendering." Gee, thanks a lot Roxio, that is real helpful. I have also had issue with jewel case inserts saved at times, and problems at times in MYDVD with it getting to 99% and failing. I upgraded the computer and versions to NXT 6 and still had that issue a few times in this version. I can usually restart before starting the rendering and make it, but I shouldn't have to. It seems like the programs have gone south. I go back to Adaptec and things seemed better back then. I may have to scrap Roxio products altogether and go with another company's.
  2. Ever since getting a new camera whenever I import the MP4 into videowave, the audio is pretty much nothing but loud static. I make a new production (top choice), and drag and drop the MP4 on it, and static is the result. I tried extracting the audio in Goldwave, saving as a WAV file, and adding it on the internal track or audio track and I still hear the same static (the original sound is nowhere to be heard). I don't know what else to do. The video shows the following properties:

    Distorted audio - static

    Does anyone have any idea? I can send the short unedited clip upon request. I hate not being able to use VideoWave on these videos.

    Distorted audio - static

    I sent a link to you via private message.It too plays fine, but when dropped into Videowave has the same distortion / static.

    Distorted audio - static

    No worries. I am getting ready to do just that. The properties are from the unaltered file by right clicking on the file itself.

    Distorted audio - static

    It is actually just over an hour long. I can try to record a short clip with the same camera and upload in a bit.

    Distorted audio - static

    I didn't get it when I made my own video from scratch (and added audio from a WAV). I also didn't get it from this same video AFTER running it through Handbrake and doing the audio as AAC 512 bitrate. BUT, the original unaltered MP4 works fine when I import it into MYDVD. I usually add chapter marks, menu audio etc. but it sounds fine even importing in and going to the add chapter menu. It just messes up on VideoWave (out of the ones I have tried) There were no issues with audio from my old Panasonic consumer recorder. I would have to bring the multiple .MTS files into Videowave and merge into an MP4. It also did fine with audio then.

    MP4 camera

    We are probably getting the following https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1250997-REG/panasonic_ag_ux90_4k_professional_camcorder.html (needed to hook up to the sound system and wanted something that would record to MP4 to save me from having to merge the AVCHD MTS files. But I understand that even MP4 will record in clips. I use mostly Roxio NXT pro, but also use Handbrake to extract the sermon from the image to post on YouTube. Does anyone know if the clips going to have to be merged and rendered even if recorded to MP4, or is there a faster way with that format, or this camera?

    MP4 camera

    We have a JVC AVCHD camcorder. The Canon was a cheaper one I looked at to buy instead of the one linked, but it only records in AVCHD. My understanding is that it has limitations in size (perhaps due to Fat32 I believe). I do keep the merged files (and right now at least the original AVCHD MTS files). I will have to see if I can put both files into VideoWave and do the chapters. I thought it would add a chapter or break where the two files were separated. I will have to see if the current one will let me choose different quality on the camera level side. We still need one with the inputs for our sound system and the ability to zoom in from app 125 feet away (from a balcony). I am not sure if that will work for the old or new cameras. I do for jump drives assuming I don't need to use on older computers.

    MP4 camera

    But isn't that what's going on when it's making an image or burning a disc?

    MP4 camera

    I have been doing it for some time. I would like to just like to knock an hour or so off of the time (merging). I can get a Canon for around 1300. but it only does AVCHD. I need one with inputs (line level and XLR)to hook to our sound system, so that increases the price. Our consumer model uses a built in mic and picks up too much background noise.

    MP4 camera

    Sorry, we record the entire service, I then add chapter marks (app 8-10) , add menu music, make jewel case inserts, and burn a disc image. I then extract the sermon from the image using Handbrake to put on YouTube and burn the entire image (with chapter marks) to DVD for use for shut ins and a nursing home. Because the current camcorder is limited by the format, it splits the service into 2-3 files. This was not as big of a deal with the previous version I had (I think #2), but with this one, I have to go into VideoWave to merge to a single file before I can go into DVD creator. Part of the reason I am getting the camcorder I am is to prevent th4e extra hour or so to merge the file. But, if it is going to take as long or longer to do so with MP4, then I am not sure I am saving anything in that regard (except having to convert from one format (.MTS to MP4). I may have to look for some program to do the merging faster if that is the case, or I might as well get a cheaper video camera that only records in the MTS format). I was told by a sales rep that he is unaware of any Video Cameras that do not record to clips if the MP4 format.) I don't mind the merging if it isn't going to take so long.
  13. I had this message come up in MY DVD on the old computer and that and other issues with Roxio had me update my 8 year old box. This still happens on the new machine at times and like the old, the only solution seems to be rebooting the computer. The specs on my new computer are: Intel Core i7-8700 Desktop Processor 6 Cores up to 4.6GHz Turbo LGA1151 300 Series 65W BX80684i78700 Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 DRAM 2666MHz (PC4-21300) C16 Memory Kit - Black Samsung 960 EVO Series - 500GB NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E500BW) I didn't get a video or sound card (yet), but see no reason why this causes problems as I have a pretty screaming machine now. The video (today's at least) is over an hour long and I am trying to burn a disc image prior to burning to DVD. Any ideas? I would rather get it to stop doing that, than to have to reboot and try again. Thanks.

    Updating Secure Burn Drive Letters

    Why is it that I suddenly want to clap my hands, stomp my feet, and say "amen"? Thanks.
  15. I have Creator NXT Pro 6 and changed drive letters on my CD drives. I don't know how to change the secure burn drive letters to reflect the new drive letters.

    Updating Secure Burn Drive Letters

    It did change on its own, but not immediately. I don't know if it's something to do with 10, or what. I noticed it was changed at some point after rebooting.

    Multiple AVCHD clips

    Hi I just installed Creator NXT Pro 6 having upgraded from version 2. I have to join 2-3 AVCHD clips together to burn to DVD. Version 2 allowed me to tell it to join the clips into one clip. I haven't seen the same option in this version? I typically save an image file while burning and burn to DVD.

    Multiple AVCHD clips

    Thanks. <sarcasm>It's SO wonderful that a version 4 versions later improves on a function. </sarcasm>

    Label Creator Nxt Pro 6

    I got it directly from Roxio today (after ordering Sunday) on their Black Friday sale and updated things that said updates were available. This is the boxed version.

    Label Creator Nxt Pro 6

    Lol, ummm isn't that kind of the whole point with a DVD / CD etc. burning program? I know you were being facetious, but they should know the people buying this are going to burn media.

    Label Creator Nxt Pro 6

    You had me going for a few, but then I saw I have it in mine. I can totally get that they had so many programs and made things difficult at times, but there has to be a way to make it powerful with lots of options, but easy to do basic tasks if you don't want to get super-detailed and just want to do it easily and be done. I guess that is the challenge.
  22. Hi, I have a CD with 56 tracks and am trying to get them to show up on the label creator. I made the text box as large as possible, and the text as small as possible (5) and tried some different fonts, but can't get that many tracks. Is there a way to make two text boxes side by side while still getting the titles from the CD itself (autofill from disc) and numbering them automatically (Or worse case scenario typing some or all myself)?
  23. I have used various software that accesses their database. This one and a database program I used had the same interface as each program to submit. The programmer of the other once told me that he had to pay a certain degree of money to them to access the database from within his program, but it was a selling point for his software. He mentioned this just to ask me if I reinstalled and installed to use the same info to log in or he would be charged for an extra user. I also seem to recall reading at Gracenote some years back that they quit allowing you to submit data through them and you had to use a program with the capabiliity. It appears that when trying to submit the data from one section of this program (the part that wouldn't let me choose the language) might have been Gracenote's own interface, but the one that wouldn't let me scroll down sure appears to be Roxio's own interface as it complements the program in design. Nonetheless, that is something to talk to Roxio / Corel directly and not here.
  24. I am a long time user (going back to Adaptec in the year 2000). I am using this for work. We have a CD with 59 tracks (which is not unusual in my line of work). First, when trying to submit disc info to Gracenote after popping the disc in for audio creator, it got to where I could not type into the track fields (but could in the artist and title fields). I could paste in there, so I typed the tracks into Word and copied and pasted into the box for Gracenote. That was well and good until about half way through when it wouldn't let me go any further (I ran out of room on the screen, there was no scroll bar and it wouldn't move down any further),. I could move the box downwards, but not upwards to see any more tracks or to hit submit even for what I had. Then, I tried doing it through advanced rip. I entered the artist and title, but it would not let me choose the language (there were not choices) to even get to the tracks. This is absolutely ridiculous. I also find it sad that the company offers such a complex program with so many features and modules to it, but offer so little support. 14 days? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Most sofware companies support well past that. With a program like this, and the fact I use it only off and on at work, 14 days isn't even enough time to open the hood, and as I recall even within that is only being able to ask one question. That is inexcusable. And from what I can tell that is for activation or installation only. Even that is sad. I am not sure what they offer as far as tech support on using the program or bugs etc. I also hate how they make each version pretty much not work with previous things. I do seem to be able to open previous versions of labels (thank God), but other things are no longer true, I also hate how if you have a project, but move the media that it doesn't allow you to give it the new path or at least keep the titles on the screen to where you can find them and fix them yourself. That would make re-making CDs easier. I would like to ask if there is a way to get the program to get the title information from the track titles themselves and not the tags or at least an easy way to edit the tags. So much of what I have doesn't have tag info for MP3s and this too is a pain. I believe the issue happens in label creator, but can't recall. I just know I have had to edit and retype. This could well end my relationship with Roxio. I love some of the added features, but the older versions were a lot more easy to use. I might continue both at work and home if they could find a way to add the features and powers, give us control over them, but not make things so difficult, and actually have them work.
  25. Brendon, the CD IS a commercial CD. it is not one I made. It is one for sale at many companies who specialize in choral music. The Gracenote thing is a function of the Roxio software. I am sure they have used that as a selling point. The problem is not with Gracenote itself, but with Roxio's programming in that they do not have scrollbar or allow the box to be moved up so I can access the later tracks or to submit. So, that IS a Roxo problem.
