  1. Okay, this is my last question and split screens. I created a custom template to hold three different videos in three rectangle boxes. Is it possible to populate each box at a different time, so they populate one at a time, rather than simultaneously? Thanks, Amy
  2. So, I've experimented with putting photos in a custom split screen template, but I don't see any way to create any movement, like a pan/zoom affect. Can this be done? Thanks, Amy
  3. I've been using NXT 3 for many years and finally upgraded to NXT 8, so I'm learning the newer Split Screen feature for the first time. It's pretty cool. But the one thing I can't figure out how to do is mute the audio of the video files I put into a custom template. The sound icon is disabled. I find it odd that I can mute the audio for any regular video files, but not files in the split screen? What am I missing? Amy

    Pan zoom photos freeze at the end

    Thank you, sknis. I fixed the issue by just shortening the length of time the photos are on the screen by a fraction of a second. I could swear I've tried this before without success, but this time, it worked.
  5. I'm running a very simple slide show where I have several photos that display for about 6 seconds each with a .45 dissolve between each photo. I also have a pan zoom effect on each photo, so I want constant motion with each photo dissolving into the next without stopping. But for some reason, some of the photos freeze for just and instant at the end, just before the dissolve. Not all the photos do this, but several of them do. What's causing this? Thanks! Amy

    Slow Zoom Text Effect

    Thanks for trying Jim! So, even NXT 5 doesn't have a slow zoom in text effect?

    Slow Zoom Text Effect

    Thanks, Jim![/size] [/size] Step 1. Add a block of text to a project (it can be on an internal track or external)[/size].[/size] Step 2. Click on the "Settings" tab on the upper right.[/size] Step 3. Click on the red dot icon for "Motion" settings.[/size] Step 4. Under "Start path" choose "Fly". [/size] Step 5. Under "Style" choose either "Zoom and Fade In" or "Slow Zoom".[/size] It's just really weird that "Slow Zoom" zooms out instead of in. You'd think the most common desired effect would be to zoom in, although I can certainly see the need for both.[/size] I'm very embarrassed to say that I still haven't gotten around to uninstalling and reinstalling NXT to fix my sound problem. I'm just dreading it, and have been procrastinating for a year. But I'm on vacation this week and it's on my to-do list, I swear.[/size] Thanks again![/size] Amy[/size]

    Slow Zoom Text Effect

    I'm trying to use the "Zoom and Fade In" text effect, but it zooms in a little too fast. When I switch to "Slow zoom", the text zooms OUT (gets smaller) instead of IN. How do I get a slower zoom IN text effect?

    No Sound?

    Great, thanks, I'll try that! It's not just the bootleg DVDs I'm having problems with now. It's MP4s that my husband has been collecting from various people - they play fine in Real Player, but then the sound is way out of sync in VideoWave. So, maybe the repair can fix all that.

    No Sound?

    Hi Jim, are you back? I would be open to the Revo and clean install, if you have instructions. So, my husband has been bugging me for years to stop using the VHS to DVD conversion machines and just hook up a VHS machine directly up to my computer. I was never motivated enough to figure out how to do this. But now I have an email from Roxio advertising their "Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus" program which includes all the cables you need. Has anyone out there ever tried this product?

    No Sound?

    Okay, my husband just handed me someone else's bootleg DVD. I have no idea how this person made their DVD. But I imported it to VideoWave and this time the problem was that the video and audio were waaaaay out of sync. So, again, I converted it to an mp4 and it was fine.

    No Sound?

    Oh, sorry I never replied to this. If I change a file from .VOB to .MPG, I have the exact same issue. The picture is fine, but there's no sound. And if I add them directly from the original DVD, the audio is still missing. Yes, I realize there may be no solution, but I thought it odd no one else is having this problem. It didn't occur to me that it could be an issue with my conversion machines, but that does sort of make sense. And I guess not a lot of people still have these machines.

    No Sound?

    No, there isn't any "VR" folder, nor is there a DVD_RTAV folder. Yes, I always finalize the DVDs. If I didn't, I wouldn't be able to copy the files to my computer at all.

    No Sound?

    I have no idea.

    No Sound?

    I've never tried converting the same VHS tape twice - once on each machine. But I'm not sure why you're asking since neither machine is producing DVDs that will let me hear sound in VideoWave. The only setting I have a choice of is for speed. I use the HQ setting which is the highest quality and only allows 1 hour of tape to fit on a DVD.
