  1. I want to make sure I do the install correctly. Can someone please let me know if I should uninstall EMC 7.5 first or will EMC 9 do it for me during the install? I also want to burn a copy of EMC 9 since I only bought the download. I once tried burning a copy of EMC 8, (elements suggestion) and I had no luck... I checked the topics and didnt seem to see anything about this... However there was a thread that talked about deleting cookies, temp. internet files... etc... I'm not sure that would pertain to me... I hope not.. Thanks for any help...

    video animation packages...

    Just curious... how many people use these programs that give you video animations? I was checking out Digital Hotcakes home movie essentials... it looks like a lot of fun... Anyone use that or any others?

    Well, I obviously did something wrong but I cant figure out what... I did this clean install and I'm trying to use VW9 but I'm not having any luck. I put a 5.3 gb video clip (it doesnt say if its AVI or anything, it just says video clip in the properties) in VW and try to edit it in timeline view and it would start playing backwards in a fast motion... I was hysterical... it was possessed!!! LOL... It didnt have any transistions or anything in it... I was just doing the editing... Then it will freeze up and I cant even close it through task manager... I had all virus stuff disabled and no access to the internet... It cant even handle small clips... I'm talking small video files that came from a sony cybershot camera. So, now I guess I need to know what the limit to the size of video this editing software can tolerate? And if a 5.3gb clip is too big then I'll have to figure out how to size any other video's I capture from this point on... Capturing alone is a challenge since it is tempermental... sometimes EMC9 will recognize my camera and sometimes it wont. While capturing, the only choice I have is DV or Mpeg-2. So, what suggestions do you all have and what info did I leave out that you need to help me? I'm using a GATEWAY GT5228 that is brand new with only CS2, Elements, EMC 7.5 EMC9 and Pinnacle Studio. plus whatever it came with...

    Videowave Freezes

    Hello everyone... After two more days of trying to work out my problem with Tech support, they have resolved nothing... I really like and want to use this software but it has never been reliable for me. Tech support said that this software should be able to handle the large files that I use and my system meets the requirements... so my hands are still up in the air... Anyway... This is what I've done... updated my video card and directx. defragged, clean disk checked for spyware, cleaned out everything running in my background... There has to be someone having the same problem... Please let me know if anyone has resolved it.. In desperation, since I really need to have a particular project finished... I installed Sony Vegas 7.0. It didn't even blink when I inserted almost 10 gb of files into it... I worked on my project for several hours and it edited smoothly and seemed very reliable. So my question is, If I render a video in Vegas can I use the rendered file in Roxio/Sonics DVD builder or My DVD. Since the editing in EMC9 is my problem, maybe I'll just use there DVD authoring... Any thoughts?

    This is what I see when I navigate to my videos through explore... It doesnt look the same as yours, but I'm sure I'm not doing what you did then... I think they are AVI. files... You asked the duration... Thats 26 minutes. When I purchased the computer I was led to believe that it would do really well with photo and video... NOT! Which one is the video card? the nVIDIA GeForce 6100... it says on my pc that a PCI Express Slot is available... I'm gonna take a good guess and say I need whatever goes in that slot... Walt, I've always done it that way too... 10-15 min. segments... In the past I would capture my video in pieces instead of capturing the entire tape. After watching a friend who does this professionally, I figured I would try and do the same, capture the entire tape and edit it like that... I figured this pc should be able to handle that... It still bothers me that it cant! So, If I update my video card, does that mean BUY a better one? Or simply update it on the web by installing something? Then, If i do have to buy a new video card...is that going to be all I need to make a video without this thing crashing? How much money does it take to do this as a hobby... yikes... my husband is going to wring my neck... Oh... and sorry for being impatient... lol... I just wanted to push my thread back up to the top so it didnt get lost... I attached a picture of what my video names look like... if you cant see it then I have no idea how to post a pic...

    No suggestions? I guess I'll contact Roxio directly... In the mean time, if anyone has time to share they're thoughts, I'd appreciate it... Thanks!

    video animation packages...

    When I first got hooked on video editing, I was using storybuilder and cinemagic... it was so easy and fun... But then when I learned how to edit the timeline I completely stopped using those... I dont know why... but anyway, you just inspired me to throw something together for my sister who is leaving for Florida... and it only took me 20 minutes...LOL... Thanks so much... Have a good day...

    video animation packages...

    LMAO!!! I never knew I had any of those!!!! Are there any examples anywhere of anyones videos that show how all of these are used? That would be really cool to see other peoples creations to get different ideas... I use photoshow gold for my photo slide shows and they have a site with examples which is great...

    video animation packages...

    I'm making a DVD of my daughters pre-school class from the beginning of the year until the end. I've gone in a dozen times to video all they're events... most will be holiday partys, birthday parties, and just special crafts that they do... So I'm looking for a package that has all different things for each holiday... Since this is something they are really going to cherish when they are older, I'd like to make is a little extra special with some fun things... I have to browse more on that site to see If I can pick out individual files to use...

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    I was so excited to transfer my video via firewire since its supposed to keep the quality... and for some reason the only way I can capture video with it is through a pinnacle program. I paid between $24 & $29... not sure exact amount and it was from Best Buy... It's conncect directly to my pc and to my Sony HC3 camcorder. When I open 'CAPTURE' IN EMC 9, the drop down list will recognize my camera but all the options are greyed out.. Then it freezes... (somtimes) The message it gives me before it freezes says something about being unable to preview the HDV device, ensure its a valid tape, and make sure its wound to a posistion with material... I know there is no problem with the tape or the posistion of the material. And yes, i have it play mode.... My camcorder works with EMC 7.5 and EMC 9 when I use the dazzle, I just cant capture from it using the firewire... While I was in the store looking for firewire cables, I could not find one that said 4 to 6 pin. They all said 4 to 4 or 6 to 4... Does it matter that I bought one with the numbers reversed??? I bought 6 to 4, not 4 to 6. I didnt think it mattered but now that this is not working, i'm curious... Anyway, just wanted to know if I need to go garbage picking for the orignal package or if there is something I can do... Also, I tried capturing through Moviemaker, that wont work either... I went into my computer's properties, checked the hardware and says that the firewire device is OHCI compliant... Thanks for any help!!!

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    Mine says it is capatable with PC and Mac... and I called the Geek Squad... (The have a pretty cool computer voice prompter) and they said it should work with my computer... Who knows... LOL... and you shouldnt be sorry that I confused my right for my left... I've got my head in the clouds half the day... Thanks...

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    Told ya soo... lol... yes, you did... but I COULDNT FIND ONE!!! And I hate waiting!!! So, now i'm paying for it... I'm ordering one from Sony and I'll see if this solves my problem... if not, i'll have an extra cable... Now, what the heck is this root kit? Something else for me to spend an hour or so on??

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    LOL... This is what happens when I try to do ten things at once.... On the phone with Sony, and assembling 100 crafts for my daughters pre-k class... lol... Thank you so much...lol... I just got off the phone with Sony... Please tell me your opinion on this... The tech guy is telling me the firewire that Best Buy sells is for Macintosh and thats why its not working correctly. He says I have to buy a sony... Is this true??? I cant believe I threw the box away...

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    no, that wont work, its already at FULL acceleration... Thank you though... Im noticing now, its not just the audio... The video will skip at times too... like its trying to go into a faster speed... I'll contact Sony, I just havent had a chance yet...
  19. asandull

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    I'll contact Sony and see what they reccomend becuase I'm able to capture the video in very nice quality to view, However the audio is crackling and skipping as I capture... Its a shame... I can capture video using dazzle and get poor quality and have good audio or capture with the firewire, have excellent quality and poor audio... This hobby is really annoying...lol Thanks for all your help. EDIT: P.S...I am shooting in standard def...

    My firewire isnt recognized...

    okay... I tried it this way... I unplugged the firewire cable, plugged it back in. The 'How do i want to capture' dialog box popped up so I chose EMC 9. and when I opend EMC 9, I saw the option to capture using Sony Device.... So it looks like I'm good to go...
  21. Ahhh... Well, maybe I spoke to soon...lol...I cant capture anything... I'll read other posts on this... and make a new thread if I cant get help... Thanks for the heads up...

    Need an old version of Videowave

    I have Roxio Videowave, Movie Creator and Sonic MyDVD v 4.0. It is software that came with my dell computer. It was hard with me to part with this because it was so user friendly but the I'm glad I did... they're are so many more things you can do with the newer versions and so much help here on this site... Anyway, I have it but I'm not sure you can install used software??? If there is a way, I'll get it to you...
  23. Oh... for some reason, I thought those files would delete themselves after the uninstall... Okay... so I removed everything but I dont think I have a registry cleaner... I cant find anything on my system that has anything to do with cleaner... except Disk Clean up... But I didnt think that was the same thing... Can I do this without the registry cleaner? oh... see what a little reading can do... I found the registry clean up in another thread... Thanks!
  24. If its not to difficult to explain would you mind telling me where I can find all of these folders to delete? I'm checking program files, but I guess it shouldnt be there since I'd be uninstalling it anyway... I downloaded EMC to my desktop, I didnt do an install yet... Thats okay that its on my desktop while I do all this?
