    Rendering Mismatch

    I upgraded from EMC7, where I was very used to using the video settings button in Video Wave to reset the color, contrast, brightness, etc. In Videowave 10, the settings menu does not call up a separate window as it did in VW7, but rather uses the production editor window. I am noticing that if the settings are changed, the rendered video does not precisely match the video as displayed in the production editor. The rendered video seems to have a contrast that's 2-3 points less than the displayed video, and brightness that's 2-3 points brighter. It's even more noticeable in slow-mo. This is a problem if you are doing a slow-mo scene ending in a freeze frame; the difference is quite noticeable. I can't believe I'm the only one experiencing this problem, but I haven't seen it posted elsewhere. Any help would be appreciated! System specs: Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6000) (6000.vista_ldr.071009-1543) System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion System Model: GN551AA-ABA m8200n BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ (2 CPUs), ~3.0GHz Memory: 3006MB RAM Page File: 1473MB used, 4728MB available DirectX Version: DirectX 10 Update: I appear to have answered my own question. I had been rendering in software mode because of blue-screen crashes when attempting to render via hardware. So, first, I uninistalled EMC10. Then, I updated my NVIDIA drivers directly from the manufacturer's home page. Then, I conducted a "clean install" as found elswhere in this forum. Then, I re-installed EMC10. So far, I am able to render in hardware mode, with no crashes, and good rendering results.

    VideoWave Crashes

    I am running EMC 10 on an HP m8200n with an AMD 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.00 GHZ, with NVIDEA graphics. Videowave and MyDVD appear to be crashing the system, resulting in the "blue screen of death." Computer diagnostics report an NVIDEA graphics driver fault as the cause of the crashes. I appear to have solved the problem by going into options menu for MyDVD and changing the rendering from "Hardware" to "Software." If you change this option in MyDVD, it also changes it for Videowave. With software rendering set in EMC 10, the crashes stopped. - Forrest
