    Random Pictures Blanked Out

    You are the BEST, my friend! Switching from hardware to software did the trick... thank you so much, Walt! I was one more unsuccessful burn away from throwing my PC through a window! Hope you're having a great day! Frank

    Random Pictures Blanked Out

    I've set up a production and it plays perfectly fine from within Videowave. I've even output it as a wmv file and that's fine as well. However, when I burn it to DVD, random photos are replaced with a black screen for the duration of that frame. I've tried burning it 4 times now to no avail. I've disconnected the PC from the internet and shut down pretty much everything else on the PC including my antivirus and firewall software... no difference. Has anyone experienced this problem and have a workaround? I'm under a bit of pressure as I need to have this on DVD by Saturday. Thank you, Frank P.S. I'm running Windows XP on a Pentium 4 CPU, 3.2GHz, 2GB RAM
  3. That's an awesome suggestion, Walt. I will try it on my next production. Thank you!
  4. Hi Walt, I was trying to add it the same way I had added the other two MP3s; i.e. by clicking on Add Background Audio". In the ensuing pop-up, I selected Add to Music Track... that's where I encountered the error message. I'm pretty sure I was positioned correctly in the timeline and I had more than enough video remaining (about 4+ minutes of video for an MP3 that was a little over 3-mins long). I got around the problem, somewhat inelegantly, by deleting the two MP3s already loaded, clicking Add Background Audio, and selecting all 3 MP3s at once. Lost a bit of work as I had done some front and back end editting on the first two MP3s but it was much better for my mental health to go back and re-edit them than to keep trying to figure out why I simply couldn't add the third one on its own. Thanks for jumping in to try and help though; I do appreciate it. Have a great night, Frank
  5. I'm working on a production (Videowave 10) for which I've already added two MP3s on the music track. I am trying to add a 3rd but getting a message stating 'audio cannot be added at this position'. I've tried a number of different things to no avail. Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to get around this problem? Thank you for your assistance, Frank

    Video Freeze

    I got that tidbit from an April 22nd post titled, "Narrowed my problem down to WMV's, please help". I thought it might be the case that it was just choppy on the preview so I output the production as a wmv and viewed it outside of EMC - it was just as choppy. I ran disk defragmenter's disk analyzer and it determined that I did not need to defragment. I'm at a loss.

    Video Freeze

    Radeon X300 series - I checked and the drivers are up to date. This is the first time I'm using EMC 9 but, up till now, I've been using EMC 8 and have not had this problem. I read in another post that EMC 9 does not like wmv files, which was what I was using, so I switched to avi. That let me get by the "freeze" point but the video was still very choppy. I didn't go through the whole production so I don't know if it would have froze up at another point. I appreciate your suggestions. Thanks for your help! Frank

    Video Freeze

    I'm using Videowave (EMC 9) to piece together a short video. While trying to preview the production from within videowave, the video portion freezes in the same place every time; however, the audo continues to play through to the end. I've also tried to ouput the file as a wmv to see what it would look like and it's very choppy. Again, the audio seems to play through fairly well but the video stutters, stops, and skips. Has anyone encountered anything like this? Thank you, Frank
  9. Well, to tell you the truth, I don't know either, but here's a little of the marketing hype I found at http://www.sonic.com/products/Consumer/Cin...gy/quality.aspx "...software based DVD decoders are able to extract significant details from the MPEG2 encoded stream and deliver them in stunning detail. Sonic's CinePlayer DVD Decoder Pack provides the highest level of video and audio quality for your DVD playback experience on Windows XP. The CinePlayer decoder engine is world renowned for its remarkable video quality and superb audio clarity for DVD playback on your PC system."

    Decoder Pack Problem

    It seems to have done the trick. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks,
  11. I uninstalled/reinstalled V9 and, at least for the moment, am no longer getting that CinePlayer issue. Phew!

    Decoder Pack Problem

    I am encountering the same problem except it's telling me it can't find 191a1a9.msi. I tried running repair to no avail. Does anyone think a complete uninstall/reinstall might help? Thanks.
  13. Now that I've uninstalled V8, a configuration script is trying to run for Sonic Cineplayer Decoder Pack and failing with the message "A network error occured while attempting to read from the file "C:\DOCUMEN~1\Owner\Locals~1\Temp\pftE9.tmp\191a1a9.msi" when I click "ok" on the message, it just tries to run again - there's no way out of this loop. I tried running "repair" for V9 (which completed successfully) but it didn't resolve the problem. Have you encountered this before? Thanks again for your assistance!
  14. I have the same issue: Yes I did install V9 but no I did not uninstall V8 - I thought the install software would handle that. So, possibly a dumb question but here goes, is it safe to uninstall V8 now? Thank you!
