  1. I just ordered a new dell laptop and it comes with windows 10 pro. I am thinking to replace my old desktop and capture card setup from the Xp era. Is this system bug free for the most part? What video editing program comes with it? Thanks in advance Kevin

    Question About Easy Vhs And Windows 10

    Hi gus thanks for the information. I have double checked and have no more VHS tapes in my house to copy so I decided i do not need to have a newer video capture devise. If any family tapes pop up from cousins etc I will still have my desktop PC in storage that i could set up and copy for them or myself if my family is on them. I did plenty of reading for just editing programs alone. I read many discussions here and a few other places looking for an easy bug free program. The free ones all seemed to have complaints that the shareware contained trojans and such so i stayed away from them. I ended up with a competitors product as the discussion groups had far less errors and complaints then any here. Now is Roxio and its family a larger company with more users and thats why? I don't know but I have made one video with this laptop and an external hard drive for plenty of extra space and it worked perfectly and finished quickly. The real test will be the next one which will be a two hour DVD instead of a 38 min one. I just wanted to thank everyone for the support over the years on my family projects and let you know my wife and i have about 60 DVD library of our families first 25 years done with Creator 9 and XP. Now to record and make HD for the next 25. Kevin

    Question About Easy Vhs And Windows 10

    The camera we all grab to shoot pics or HD video now is a Nikon P100 and for cell phone pics and video a Samsung S6 and a I Phone 6. We have retired the tape style recorders.

    Question About Easy Vhs And Windows 10

    My captures from tapes are done as far as i know, I am replacing my desktop with the laptop listed below. My new footage of the family etc will be from digi cams in hd or cell phone cams. I was just thinking it might be nice to still be able if any tapes pop up. If this is not a great devise I will just look for a edit program alone Ideas?
  8. I am done turning my VHS library into dvd's and it was a huge project but Roxio Creator 9 did the work. I do have one question. I am re doing a few early ones and adding footage shot with cell phones in MP4 format. It seems some which were shot in landscaping mode for the wider angle do not automatically flip in creator. It was late last night so i put the project on the shelf, my question is how do i flip the wide angle films? Kevin

    No Sound

    After importing a mpeg4 file which has sound, I burn a DVD and no sound. Ideas?
  10. Im back copying family VHS to DVD and my equipment and Creator 9 works great for my needs. I do have a question though about maybe im missing a setting. Plenty of our home VHS have space between filming and during capture the program will stop if there is a large gap. This causes me to have to sit and watch the complete capture to start the capture again. Is there a setting that will allow a timed capture without stopping. I set the timer on the capture screen but it still stops when the VHS is empty (blue screen) for a period. Thanks

    Setting Question

    One other question, is there other menu's available to down load that work with this old program?

    Setting Question

    Thanks, I will see if my old VHS C camera will do that.

    Import Sound Problem

    Unfortunatly I do not have any of my older clips as I delete them after making a DVD. I checked my windows settings and all is normal. The only thing I can think of is perhaps my anti virus has caused my Roxio to stop working. I have not used it since Feb when i installed 2013 Kasperski, you may have been right with the program idea, I forgot to include K when thinking of new programs. Maybe i will try windows movie maker for a quick test, then if not I will look for a that converter you mentioned.
  14. Hello all. I am having a problem creating a transfer with sound. I recorded video on my nikon P100, it has sound on the recording. It is recorded in .mov and in past recordings when I import the video for editing etc then to make a dvd the sound works. Today for some reason no sound seems to be tranfered, any ideas what to check?

    Import Sound Problem

    yes it has worked before and I have added nothing as far as programs or updates to this computer. I use this one for very little, that is why I do not understand where the audeo has gone? Is there an audeo control panel setting buried some place for intput?

    Adding A Person Into A Film

    Thank you very much, I will experiment with that feature and see if I can get it done!
  17. Is it possible to take an existing movie say of a band and add a dancer to the front of the stage? I know in Hollywood style films they have the dancer do her stuff in front of a green screen then superimpose her performance onto the band. I was just wondering if this is possible with Creator 2009?

    Best Quality

    Ok thanks, I just wanted to be sure I was at the max. I don't have a blue ray player or burner and can not see the need at this point. The majority of my video conversion needs are to finish converting the family VHS library to DVD for viewing and safe keeping. At family gatherings I will of course shoot some new footage and again burn to DVD. Maybe once I have grand kids I could see the need to upgrade? I just did not want to leave anything on the table. The 50-100 hours of VHS I have to do are way lower quality anyways. Kevin Edited to fix quote.

    Best Quality

    I have a new Nikon digital camera that shoots Video in HD. I tried a few short test films and they worked but when I am converting them to mpeg 2 best quality on my computer they seem downgraded in video picture quality. Is there a better file type creator 2009 will allow or is that the max?
  20. I converted an old LP to an MP3 with Roxio last night but could not find how to auto seperate the music file. In settings there is a feature that allows you to set the time when nothing is being picked up. I assume that , means between songs on the LP so I set it real short 1 Second but when recording that side of the album it was still one big file. Is there another setting I am missing or do I still have to go split the album side MP3 file myself?
  21. Is there an easy way to add multiple Jpegs at once rather then adding one at a time?
  22. cdn1972

    Adding multiple Jpegs at once?

    I am using the regular editing not cinamagic and I am just adding pictures to a film but adding them one at a time seems like a long process when the pictures are in a single file in my computer. I just wondered if say holding shift or some key while highlighting the complete line of jpegs would be way easier.

    DAO PROBLEMS

    I installed 2009 and it didn't recognize my capture card, i installed a new one ATI TV WONDER PRO and now I have the DAO problem of ERROR 1706. I read the site here and did the run this line in cmd ( regsvr32 /u ''C:\program files\common files\microsoft shaed\dao\dao360dll line and now when I ask to open capture the program just sits idle and does nothing. Help please!

    DAO PROBLEMS

    I sat last night and dumped Roxio and followed the instructions for a clean install this morning, then re-installed Roxio and walla!!!!!!!!!!!! it works. I did a 15 min capture with my new card and it works well. I now need to learn to edit with this version. I am happy again as I liked my previous Roxio and am looking forward to working with this one. I guess the install of the card buggered the Roxio and without doing a clean install it didn't work.

    DAO PROBLEMS

    It has popped open with that error as well as error 1706. The dao error message is last before it closes the little warning window.
