Thank you for responding. The bold lettering in red wasn’t my doing.
I have been attempting to create a movie that has video and audio for burning onto a DVD. I have successfully done this on numerous occasions in the past on my previous PC, running on Vista, using both Roxio Creator 2011 and sometimes Windows Movie Maker and DVD Maker. I was able to watch and listen to the DVDs on my DVD player/recorder connected to a TV. I now have a new PC running Windows 8 and has Roxio Creator NXT installed.
As an experiment I went back to my previous PC which is an old clapped out laptop. It doesn’t operate on mains power anymore; only on battery power, hence session times are short. I imported one of the MOV files into Creator 2011. The MOV file came from the same camera source that I have been using for the last 2 years. I then converted it to Mpeg 2, dragged it to the Storyline in VideoWave where the audio was retained. I created a Production using “Output” and “Export as” and burnt a DVD. I played it on the DVD player/recorder and a TV/DVD player. In both cases there was audio. I copied the converted Mpeg 2 file from Creator 2011 into NXT on my current PC. When I dragged the file into the Storyline, the audio was gone. I created a Production using “Output” and “Export as”. There was audio in the Production file. I burnt a DVD and played it in each device. There was only audio on the TV/DVD player and not the DVD recorder/player. I added the Mpeg 2 file to Windows 8 Movie Maker. There was audio and but no video. The problem isn’t critical, just annoying. In the mean time I will go on producing movies on DVDs and watch and listen to them on the TV/DVD player.
