    Roxio Capture Resolution

    Hi Ted, The Roxio Media Import application in NXT3 captures your video for burning to DVD, VCD, or DV. The settings are for output quality. I think it's the same for Creator 2011. If you choose one of the DVD outputs your captured video is output to the standard DVD dimensions, 720 x 480 for NTSC or 720 x 576 for PAL. The other settings, HQ, SP, and LP only change the data rate or quality, not the dimensions. Selecting a DV output might let you select non-DVD dimensions, but I don't have a capture card or a DV camera, so I can't try it to see. Regards, Brendon
  2. That is the manual "Clean Uninstall" recommended by our old Leader, the legendary Pat Nugent. (see the Staff list) It's great to see that the techs are still recommending it, and that it still works. Thank you.

    re roxio audio

    Hi Mac, I just went back and tried it. It seems 'Edit Audio' only works on one file at a time. The button greys out if I select more than one file. Many players such as WMP allow you to set filters for playback, and CD recording software commonly 'normalizes' the volume of audio, but I don't know of an editor which will batch-edit your audio files like this. Perhaps one of the more specialized (and expensive) editors might? Best regards, Brendon

    re roxio audio

    Hi Mac, I've searched all over, but I can't find anything on the Roxio site in a later version than Record Now Music Lab 10. This might be a result of me looking from the bottom of the world (New Zealand) but if anyone can show me where to buy version 14, please do. It seems to be a diced-and-sliced offspin of Creator somewhere between Creator 2012 and Creator NXT. Anyway if your version has "Create Music Disc Projects" in its Audio section, I might be able to help you. Screenshots are from RNML 10. -Click that Music Disc Projects button and run Roxio Music Disc Creator. - Now drag a music file into the Audio CD window - Right-Click on the file to highlight it and select Edit Audio - When the editor opens, click the Equalizer button and a fine array of sliders should appear - I think this is what you wanted, and I hope this is where you'll find it in your version. Regards, Brendon

    re roxio audio

    Thanks Mac. I've modified it to protect your serial key. (Installs are counted by Roxio, and we don't want someone else stealing your installs) It's not the version I have. I'm off to do some more research. I'll be back later.

    re roxio audio

    Hi Mac, When you start to reply you should see a box like this: You start to type where the straight-line cursor is under the "B". If you get your screen-shot file on your desktop where you can see it, left-click on the file and drag it onto the area around the paperclip, then let it go, it will upload to the bulletin board. Now, if you click on the black circle with a white "+" which has appeared, your screenshot will be attached in your message wherever that cursor is. If you don't click on the "+", your screenshot will be attached at the end of your message. Care to try it?

    Features on Creator NXT6

    Hello Joyce, I'm sorry Paint wouldn't save your JPG in an acceptable manner - I was sure it did it last time I tried, but perhaps M$oft have changed something again? It certainly didn't fix the photo today. I've been working today on editors which allow you to save a JPG which the Roxio apps will accept. The old ones I use tend to destroy the Exif data, but I found an editor that will let you load a 'rejected' JPG and will then save it to an accepted format with the Exif data apparently intact. IRFANVIEW (homepage link) is small, well-known, safe, and simple enough for your 'load/save' operation even though it has lots of abilities. Oh yes, and it's FREE for personal use. You'll see my 'rejected' photo was accepted by Roxio after a load/save in Irfanview. The others that worked were Paintshop Plus, and Gimp (too complicated, as were the Commandline converters). AcdSee demolished the Exif data. Windows Photo Viewer didn't help. Whew! How's that? To summarize, -The Roxio apps handle the S7's MPG files and its JPG photos taken in 'Burst mode", but don't like the Intel Exif standard the S7 uses for single JPG shots. These photos have to be converted to the Motorola Exif standard, to be used by Roxio. Best regards, Brendon

    re roxio audio

    Perhaps we're a little bit closer. All I can find in the Roxio shop that is anywhere close to what you're mentioning is Record Now Music Lab 10 Premier (link here) Is this the beastie you have? If it isn't, could you post a screen shot of the "About" display (without your serial number) please?

    Hello Joyce, nice to see you back. The MPG files from the S7 don't use Exif data like the JPGs, hence there's no issue there. I'm surprised that Paint didn't correct the Exif data, but I don't have Creator on this machine to check it. Please 'scuse me, but it's after 11:30pm here and I'm just about sagging off my chair so I really need to go get horizontal before I fall over. I'll come back to this in the morning after I've re-charged a little. Regards, Brendon

    re roxio audio

    Hi Mac, Sorry, but you've got me completely confused here. Realtek is quite a different company from Roxio, and I can't find any reference to a Realtek Record Lab Premium, although the build number you quoted looks like a Roxio one. Would you please run your software and then go to Help > About this software and have another crack at telling me what it actually is? Best regards, Brendon

    re roxio audio

    Mac121, (1) Which version of the software (Full name and Version number) do you have, please? (2) Which audio application in there are you using. or what are you trying to do with it? (please feel free to give lots of details) Brendon

    Bad install media for Roxio 2011

    Yes, I think I can manage something there. I'll contact you privately since I'll need to swap email addresses and stuff.

    Bad install media for Roxio 2011

    Hello Dan, What is your install medium that has gone bad? (I'm concerned if it's a CD or DVD that has gone bad, but puzzled by the idea of extracting 'images' with winrar ) Roxio was selling a number of different products in 2011, but I have copies of some of them so I think I can help. What is the name and version (pro, standard, SE, . . .) of the one you're having trouble with? Regards, Brendon
  15. Hello MysterC, If you're formatting your HDD and starting again, just reinstall Creator. There's no process you can do that will re-credit an install to your license. Registering registers your license key, so only has to be done once. Regards
  16. It's "Volume Licensing" software. Here a customer negotiates with the VL Sales team and buys one of the four VL versions with sufficient capabilities (after examining that chart) to suit the needs of the business, together with a sufficient number of licenses to cover the staff who will use the software. If you weren't the customer who selected the Platinum version, or a staff member entitled to be using it, then you should be having a serious conversation with the person who provided you with it and the license required to use it.
  17. Hello Drewski, Platinum is one of the "Volume Licensing" iterations of Creator NXT 7, the others being Silver, Palladium, and Gold. A chart of their abilities is available HERE, and a full comparison PDF is downloadable HERE. Neither of those charts mention the Roxio Express Labeler or Roxio Label Creator which come with the "full" versions of Creator NXT 7, so I don't think the cheap business versions have label makers. Check with the person from your Company who gave you the software. Regards, Brendon

    Roxio Creator Silver 10 Won't See DVD Drive

    In some machines Windows [8 or 10] won't enumerate optical drives properly, so they can't be seen. Inserting a value in the CurrentControlSet of the Registry and restarting Windows fixes that. Here's the contents of the batch file which can be cut and pasted back into notepad, (all one line) reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 and here's the same thing as a registry file which can be saved as enum.reg and when the file is double-clicked will insert the same value by using Regedit. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0] "EnumDevice1"=dword:00000001 Regards, Brendon

    Roxio Creator Silver 10 Won't See DVD Drive

    I've had several computers under Windows 10 which would not see the optical drive at all until I made this addition and restarted. enum.bat However I've never had my hands on Creator Silver so I don't know if the addition will solve your problem. Best advice is still ask the VLP team - they handle your Creator Silver software.

    Roxio Creator Silver 10 Won't See DVD Drive

    Creator Silver is a Corel Volume Licensing product, a version of the Roxio Creator Enterprise software. There's a Deployment Guide available HERE, and other information and PDFs available HERE but you should be asking the VLP team rather than the user Board. For questions or to request a quote, contact the Roxio Business Sales Team at vlp@roxio.com or 1-877-682-6735.

    Features on Creator NXT6

    Hey Walt, here are a couple of photos which exhibit the problem. They were taken on an S7 phone. They're zipped so they don't get modified by uploading here, and you can experiment without altering the originals. photos.zip NXT 7's Slideshow Assistant rejects the one straight out of the phone, but accepts the other which has been re-saved. Here is a screen-shot of Slideshow Assistant a couple of minutes ago. That is NXT 7, but the photos are behaving exactly the same as they did with my NXT 6 last year. Hi Joyce, Yes, the Samsung agent is wrong. Can't blame him I suppose, they're telephone answerers not technical people. The S7 photos do contain Exif data and if you load them into a (non-Roxio) photo editor and then re-save them, the Roxio programs will accept them going forward. The dates on the screen-shots you posted - That isn't a new direction to look, it just confirms that the Roxio program can't read the S7 Exif data properly. There are two ways to store numbers in Exif and Roxio gets the numbers back-to-front. There is no point in your paying to get NXT 7, since it behaves the same way as NXT 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 did. Viewing photos: They've taken away the old Windows Photo Viewer from Windows 10, but if you right-click a photo and look down the options available you should see "Open With", and going right from there you should see "Paint" among the selection. If you open a copy of a rejected photo in Paint, and then save it again, the saved photo should be accepted by Roxio. (I suggest working on copies while you get this sorted, so you don't overwrite the originals) Whew! Did I answer all the questions? Brendon
  22. I get the severe static noise from your clip using NXT 7 under Windows 10.

    Features on Creator NXT6

    Hi Joyce, At the risk of putting it very simply, Exif is a standard for embedding all sorts of info about how and where and when the photo was taken, (aperture, speed, camera type, location etc etc) into the actual photo. The problem is that two major competing standards have been developed (ain't that typical?) and the Roxio software only handles one of them. Most viewer programs can read either type and save photos in a format that Roxio handles. Regards, Brendon

    Features on Creator NXT6

    Hello Joyce, Please see this thread. It will explain the problem. It has to do with the way the S7 saves Exif data into its JPGs. Creator has suffered from this problem since at least as far back as NXT2, and Roxio have never fixed it. The easiest work-around is to Load rejected photos into some viewer program which will let you save them again. Done properly, when saved they should still contain your Exif photo metadata but be accepted by the Roxio software. For the technically-minded, Exiftool by Phil Harvey will rewrite the exifdata too. Regards, Brendon
