Thank you both for responding! I realized after I sent the message that I gave you the wrong information. I'm able to follow directions for using computer programs, but lack general computer knowledge so I make mistakes...somewhat like a chef who can read a recipe, but adds salt instead of sugar because she doesn't know the difference between the ingredients.
This is the information you needed: Installed Memory (RAM) is 12.0 GB (10.9GB usable).
My processor is: AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7,12 Computer Cores 4C+8G 3.50Ghz
System Type: 64-bit Operating System x64-based processor
Windows 10 Home
The project was 4.57 GB being burned to a 4.7 disc. It had numerous individual clips of home movies with color panels introducing each new topic. The color panels had text, a photo, and overlays on them. Transitions were between each new color panel. I used a menu with chapters connected to each of the 23 color panels. I made the movie with Creator 2012 pro and then exported it. I dragged the exported movie into MyDVD in NXT5 to burn it because it refused to encode the movie with Creator 2012 pro.
You asked about my experience with Creator 2012. I bought that program after I got a new computer that came with Windows 10 because Creator 2010 wouldn't run the video clips with Windows 10. Even thought 2012 isn't technically compatible with Windows 10, other users had success so I gave it a try hoping it would also open older projects I created with 2010.. It worked fine with building a new video (videowave would often close and say it stopped working, but that always happened to me even with my old version of 2010 running on Windows 7). The problem came when it was time to burn the project. It was VERY slow to start the burn process, but would eventually open the project and start the burn. However, it quickly would say that it failed to encrypt the movie and give an error code (that I don't have with me right now). Nothing would actually be burned on the disc. I finally gave up and upgraded to NXT5 since it was compatible with Windows 10. However, I'm very disappointed because the MyDVD portion of NXT5 is terrible. They took away a lot of options and I don't like that I can't select to burn in high quality. The worst part is that it didn't work! Perhaps I did something wrong (likely), but it seems like I have a lot of RAM and my project fit on the 4.7 size disc.
Any suggestion? I VERY much appreciate your guidance, patience, and help. You're a lifeline to me!
