Thanks for the reply!
I've replied with the long string of dashes...(sorry if it's muddy)
Please also add your computer specs including your video card/chip and OS to your signature.
-----------First off, doesn't my signature meet your criteria? I have my card and OS in there!
-------------Re: the default preset problem: Thanks for the Preset help, I found it. I also found that weird transition error that applies the trans length to still length, and thought it was the wrong way to do it.
Whenever I trim off a song intro with the audio edit panel, the trim never stays intact?...
Don't know; what procedure are you using? If you know how much you want to trim at the beginning, use Sound Editor to make a very precise trim.
----------I am using the Sound Editor! I am double clicking on an audio track to get to it. I trim, click OK, and it doesn't take!
Does anyone else's slide show have a weird flicker at the top 1/8 of every picture? Almost looks like there is some kind if aliasing or field shifting?
I have never seen this. Turn on the TV safe zone mask and see if the flicker is outside the mask. This may be due to your hardware. I can't comment since you didn't post any information about that , your video card/chip or monitor resolution, or aspect.
-----------I'll check the safe zone, not sure but I think it was "in" the zone, but if that were an issue, what about the bottom of an image falling "in" as well? Hardware? As I mentioned (in my sig) I have a (Nvidia) GeForce 8300 GS. 1680 x 1050 res. on my monitor (does my monitor resolution really affect anything?), and I am creating a 4:3 NTSC slideshow. I am using digital photos set at 4 x 6 which I am sure we all know fits NTSC aspect ratio almost to a tee.
How come when you import a VideoWave slide show into MyDVD and your video name appears on the menu, you don't get the nifty text menu options you do with just text menu creation?
Yes you do, just look for it.
----------I have looked for it. When I highlight it, the "nifty" menu doesn't come up on my settings (which BTW I already have (discovered) docked). It only comes up when I highlight menu text. Not being lazy, just don't see it.
How come you have no control over the navigation buttons MyDVD automatically inserts for you when you set a submenu? In particular the "length and goto" option.
I don't understand this question. I have almost full navigation adjustment on the movies I place on the menu. You can set the navigation to go to a different movie after playing one of you can set it to go back to the main menu (default).
------------Let me clarify. When you make a submenu, EMC automatically places a home and arrow icon. Those are the icons I am referring to. When you highlight them, they are both GHOSTED in the link panel.
On a submenu (chapters) the default is the same as commercial DVD. You start at a chapter and continue to the end of that movie. After that end, you can set the navigation to go to the next movie or back to the main menu.
Which leads me to another question- Let's say for example you want to set up a chaptered DVD with all four seasons- Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. You create Spring first, then set Summer as a submenu? Is that the right way? I am used to other programs (like Ulead DVD Studio) where you can keep the menu as a rotatable menu, in other words you could easily navigate backwards to Winter too. Am I missing something here?
No, select a menu with "seasons" as your main menu and then the four seasons as submenus. See the tips and tricks area of EMC 9 for a post on how to make a customizable menu.
-----------You missed my point- I don't want a Seasons Main page, just start on Spring Menu with an option to go(backwards) to the Winter Menu.
Sorry for all the queries, I am new to EMC10 and am eager to keep creating!
BTW, most experienced users here could ahve answered those questions; no guru ( as used on this board required.)
---------???????? Just being polite. Didn't realize I couldn't throw the word "guru" around and not be held to it.
