  1. I having lots of problems with this program. After I've created a video from my pictures (that seems to work good), but then, I want to create a DVD fo the video (can't seem to figure it out). Creator NXT 3 was much easier. I've considered uninstalling 7 and re-installing 3 bu, that doesn't work either (invalid serial number ((Red X)). I am very dissatisfied with how NXT 7 works. Also: Is it possible that because I have 7 installed, that 3 is giving me the Red X?

  2. This is for everyone. 1st-to create an ISO image in MYDVD: click "burn" and unclick the DVD block on the top left, and click "create an image" about half way down.

    OK, I completely deleted and re-installed NTX 3. Also deleted some extra programs I had installed for making videos. Now it works much better.

    NTSC works perfect but PAL isn't so good.

    For the PAL version to work I had to use no pan and zoom and make the transitions as short as possible.

    But it still looks good.

    Thank You Everyone for your suggestions.

  3. Many (including myself) consider Creator 2012 the last, best product Roxio put out. When you installed NXT3, it probably informed you that it needed to uninstall Creator 2012, and then did it for you? At this point, you could go back and reinstall Creator 2012, and I'm quite sure that both will coexist.


    All of the things we've tried so far, rendering prior to MyDVD, will only affect the flickering during pan/zoom and transitions. As for the menus, I don't have any good ideas, except to consider reinstalling Creator 2012.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about re-installing, not sure yet though. I want to try NTX 3 one more time. I will be starting from the beginning one more time. If it happens again I will go back to 2012.



    I don't know why using the AF Macro should have any effect. I did a quick test using 5 pictures with a resolution of 5202x3465 to create a DVD and have very little flickering ( there will always be some when panning) especially when the resolution is reduced to DVD quality.


    Why are you editing the photos and what program are you using? What are the actual settings you use when you create your video in Videowave?

    Could you possibly upload a problem photo to some website such as Dropbox or OneDrive?

    Yeah, I know there is a little flickering. It was really the moving menus and the transitions that concerned me.

    I understood that the pics were to large and that is because the camera was set on the AF Macro position.

    I'm also using NTX 3 for editing the pics. In most cases it's just cropping or making it lighter or darker.

    Videowave: Never needed to change any of the settings.

    I have one drive?

  5. By "path" I mean, what is new in your system since it worked properly to create your video projects. I believe that you understand the process of using Videowave and MyDVD.


    You never answered if this is the first project you've done with NXT 3. Is it? Or have you successfully used Creator NXT 3 to create videos previously?


    What was the previous version of Creator you were using? And when did you move to Creator NXT 3? Does NXT 3 give you any new capabilities that you need? If not, then going back to that previous version may be the easiest/best solution to the problem.


    So answer those specific questions, please.

    Bought NTX 3 in May 2015. Roxio Creator Pro 2012. Can't think anything extra special that NTX 3 has over 2012.

    I have made 2 projects since then, the last one in Jan/Feb this year. There were some progs that I deleted as of Tuesday. I don't remember those names but, they came from Giveaway of the day. I installed these since Feb (Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, Family Search Indexing, Avery Design and Print. There are more but they are only updates of ones I've always had.

  6. OK, didn't know you weren't with Roxio. Appreciate the help though.


    All of my versons of Roxio always worked fine, this is the first time I've had this problem. I now understand why the pictures are bad. That has to do with the AF Macro. I use it for close-ups and forgot to set it back to the regular mode. Just don't understand why the Pan & Zoom and moving menus jump and jerk, they were always smooth. Just uninstalled a couple of other free photo progs. that might be interfering with my Roxio. As far as the path, I assume you mean How I make the slideshow. First, I edit the photos. Then, in videowave, I download the pics and create the video. When that's finished I burn it in MYDVD.

  7. OK, i'm going to start completely new. Will take a while. I haven't touched my camera since I took the photos for the slide show, only to download the pics. Just notice that the camera was set to AF Macro.. Guess that's the problem with the pics. I'm going to reduce the pics to 800X600, that the closes choice Roxio gives me. I have my original pictures on another Hard Drive. Will just copy them to my C drive and work on them from there, keeping the original pics as is.

  8. Yep, you're right about editing in videowave. But, everything that I talked about is/was happening when I played it in MYDVD. I reduce the size of all pics to 640 X 360. redid all Pan & Zooms to my likeings. Then watched the video on MYDVD and looked perfect. Though we had fixed it. Then I went the VLC to look at the ISO image to see how it looked there. Same crap, the two moving menus, at the beginning and end of the video, jerk and jump. Pan and Zoom was much better.
