  1. Hello I have a HD home made video that I created using Roxio couple of years ago. I noticed using Roxio Creator 2012 Pro - Roxio Video Copy & Convert > Convert Video> (inport the movie into Source section) there is an option to convert video to Blu-ray. Before purchaing Blu-ray DVD burner & blu-ray disks, I wanted to validate if converting the existing disk into Blu-ray will actually convert the source and will look like a blu-ray movie? or Do I need to film origianlly using blu-ray format or some other format and have a specific videocam (if something like this exists) or filming using regualr HD video and then converting to blu-ray is enough? Will the quality of the movie be different? Thanks for reading.

Also can you recommend a good video-camera? when purchaing a video-camera what specification should I be looking at? what is important to look at? Thanks,

    Burning Iso To Dvd

    Hi I am using Roxio Creator 2010 Pro. I have created the iso file with my old version of roxio about a yr ago. I want to burn the iso file to DVD disk. The iso file is about 5GB. When I go to Burn Disk Image (at Data/Copy tab) and insert blank disk. It shows an error: 'please insert a blank or rewritable disk into DVD drive' I tried with multiple blank disks and still get this error message. Is there a different way to burn iso files? I don't recall having this problem with old version of roxio creator. Thank you.

    Burning Iso To Dvd

    I used Roxio 10. Previous version. The iso file is on my HD and it's for the DVD. Home made video. Where is "Roxio's Creator Classic Program to burn the disk image (DVD)"? Steve, I tried copying using Copy and Convert method but after I choose the iso file (from) and insert the disk. The green arrow button doesn't light up and can't click on it. When I go to options -> Burn Setup it shows E:... - 1.05 'Medium not present-Unit not ready. (Insert Disk). Disks I am using either Verbatim dvd-r or Memorex dvd+r Thanks

    VideoWave Ques

    Hi, Was woundering if I could do below things with VideoWave or other tools comes with Roxio. 1. When editing the video, I know I can make scenes black/white. But is it possible to make specific item black/white and not the full picture. Or have the entire scene black/white and have some item in that scene be orginal color. 2. Have a scene slowly fading away and at the same time another scene starts.. so for 10 secs you have 2 parts ... while the first one is slowly disappears. I hope it makes sense what I am trying to do/learn. Please provide me with example, video so I could try it on my video. Thank you

  12. Hi I am burning home videos / data to my DVDs using EMC 10. Was wondering what brand of DVD's is good to use for burning movies\data. There are so many on the market... Now Memorex DVD-R is on sale. Is it a good brand? Also is there a difference between DVD-R or DVD+R? Thank you, Stan

    Thank your your help, I tried agian by buring to ISO file and then to the disk. and it worked as a charm. Any ideas why it didn't work in one step? Could you also tell us what setting you are using when you burn the DVD? --Wha do you mean at the Burn Project Option? if yes, I used 4X speed Also check your render setting under Tools/Options. If set to hardware try software or vice versa. --Was Hardware, tried software option.. whats the diff? do you know? From what camera (photo, digital or analog camcorder) are you capturing? How is the camera connected, USB or Firewire? To what format are you capturing? --Used digical camcorder, avi format, used firewire connector.

    Create A Countdown

    Hi, So to use the "Creativity Fun Pack" I would need to download Windows Movie Maker 2 and then its tools and create a countdown in it and then load the .avi file into EMC? Also was wondering is it possible to do something similar to (I think it is called) the opening studio. i.e At the beginning in any movie, they have an "opening studio (i.e Paramount) credits" please see the below link: (it is an image) want to do a clip. Can I do something like this in EMC10 http://techdigest.tv/paramount_logo.jpg Thanks.
  21. Hi, Is there away to include two clips in a project and run it at the same time. Have one in the left corner and the second one in the right corner? Please provide the steps. Thank you Stan
  22. Hi, When I add an MP3 music file to my project as a background Audio, the sounds gets corrupted a little bit at the beginning. What I did: I muted the volume, than clicked on the "Add Background Audio" icon, selected an MP3 file and tried different options "Add on music track" or "Add on sound effect track". Is there a different way to add MP3 files? I include two Mp3 files and the sound one is working fine. I tested the MP3 file in Microsoft Media Player and it played perfectly. Please advice, Thank you
  23. Hi, I am still a newbie and have been using EMC10 for a couple of months to create homemade videos. Everything is good and I really like the software. I am now looking for the next stage, to make my videos more interesting and professional looking. I found a small clip, please take a look at it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7PpRaR6FBY Here are the things that I want to do (similar to the clip) 1. (first 19secs) See how at the begining it starts with captions like when you watch a movie, it starts with the words "displays PRESENTS, Video Studio logo…etc 2. (20secs-29secs) have some kind of background with the person (similar as in the clip i.e. The girl is shown and background is moving) 3. (30secs-39secs) The book is displayed, and it opens and the movie starts. I am not trying to find the exact stuff from the clip, but am looking for similar ideas and more (maybe something new I haven't seen). I looked into EMC10 and couldn't find stuff like that. I need your help, Where can I download or purchase these kinds of effects that can be added to my videos.. I appreciate your help,
  24. Hi, I have .avi files and I wanted to burn them on the DVD, also I wanted to include a menu at the main page. Here how I tried to burn the .avi files on the DVD: Easy Media Creator 10 Suite -> Data and Backup -> Data Disk -> Add Data (avi files) and click burn. (It burns very quickly with good quality) But I couldn’t find how to add a menu at the main page. I don’t want to click next each time to go to the avi clip I want to watch, I want to be able to select from the menu. I found another way by going to: Video Copy & Convert-> Video Compilation -> Add Movies -> Options-> checkmark (Create a Main Menu) -> Click Burn. It takes a lot longer to burn, but that’s alright, but when I insert the DVD into the DVD player or run it from my PC, it doesn't work, it's not able to read. (I tried twice and it doesn’t work), please let me know why? what am I doing wrong? Please advice.. Thank you.
