    Add Transition To A Selected Group Of Slides

    With reference to question 1: I selected 10 slides by: selecting the first slide that i like to add a transition then I hold down the Shift Key and click the 10nth slide. Then I select "Add Transition". A window comes up that gives me 3 choises -Add/replace transition before current slide -Add/replase transition after current slide -Add/replace tansition between all panels in production It did not give me the option: "Add/replace transition within selection" I know how to select multiple files in windows with the Shift-Key. The selection of a group or slides works OK when I add auto-motion.... but not when I add a Transition. Costas
  4. I have 2011 Creator Pro , and I use Videowave to create a slide show video. I have added about 100 pictures in this video file. I applied "auto motion" to all the slides, by selecting all side using Shift key and selecting all slides. Then I want to add a different transition for every 10 slides. I sellect 10 slides with Shift key. A windows pops-up to tell me where to add the transition. But it does not give me the option to select a group of slides. ... A night before i could not do this and after few tries it worked... Now I try and it does not work again.. Question 1. How can I add a transition to a group of the selected slides? Qestion 2. How can I add a group of 4-5 different transitions to apply to all slides in the file (timetable), so that they can be applied randomly? Thanks Costas Calogeropoulos

    Picture Motion Video Effect

    Yes, that's exactly what i was looking for... but i was looking in the Tranistions and Video Effects Thank you ver much Costas
  6. I have Roxio 2011 pro. I know that with Microsoft Windows Movie maker, you can create a slide show, where the picture in the slide moves slowly, giving a perception that the still picture scene is a video (specially for a landscape). How can this be done with Roxio Videowave or slide show creator? Transition only changes the a portion betweeb two pictures.. I suspect this motion must be a visual effect...But I have not found it yet Can any body help? Costas Calogeropoulos

    Dvd Playback Problems

    I have a new Dell XPS Studion Desktop running Windows 7, with all the latest drivers. My DVD player is TSSTcorpDVD+-RW TS-H653G I use Roxio Creator 2010 Pro I created videos using the Videowave and then I used MyDVD to create the DVD. The DVD has an introduction video and 7 video movies I burned the first DVD using a Sony blank DVD-R Ver. 2.0/1X-8X. The burning of the 1st Sony DVD worked fine and so did the playback. I realized that I did some mistakes in the video-scenes and I modified some video scenes. The burning of the 2nd Sony DVD worked fine and so did the playback. Again I wanted to make some further improvements and I mofified some videos. I run out of Sony Blank DVDs and I purchased Verbatim DVD-R 16X blanks. The 1st Verbatim DVD was burned and completed with no problems, but during the playback on a 3 year-old Pioneer DVD player one scene in one of the video-movies was freezing for few seconds and then continued to play. I burned a 2nd Verbatim DVD which was burned and completed with no problems, but during the playback on the same Pioneer DVD player the video on introduction and one another video-movie is not displayed while the sound is there... I get a white screen only and sound. To ensure no other programs may affect the burning, I closed all other running programs and I burned a 3rd Verbatim DVD , the burning was complete with no problems. But during the playback on the Pioneer DVD player one scene in a different video-movies was freezing and the play was stopping. I tried another DVD burn and had similar problems ... The DVD playback on the computer DVD seem to play ok, but not on the Pionner DVD player. I tried one DVD that where a scene was freezing and stopping on an 10 y/o Toshiba DVD player and there the freezed scene unfroze within few seconds and kept playing. Lastly i used and older Sony DVD-R 1X-4X. The DVD players could not read that DVD at all....eventhough the burning was completed without any problems Do you have any ideas ? I appreciate any help Costas
  8. Hello my card is 128 DDR ADI Radeon 9800 I should mention that I did not have this problem with EMC9 Costas
  9. Last night I spent more than an hour deleting the EMC10 from my PC and any previous version of Roxio EMC. I also removed any occurance of any Roxio entry in the Registry. Today I re-installed the EMC10 from the CD that I purchased a couple of weeks ago. I was not surprised that the problem was not resolved. I have a Dell XPS (High Performance) PC purchased in late 2003. I use Windows XP and the windows are 100% up-to-date. Last time I asked Dell if there was any new drivers available they were unable to answer, so I dont take any chances by experimenting with new Drivers. Now some info of how this problem happens. I import the Auto-fill from disc. I did not use any style yet, to see if the style causes the problem. The Show/Hide Object Boundaries is checked. The track list show on the Booklet page and on the Back (label)page. I can add the track numbers by Right Clicking on the text and select Numbered. Then if i try to edit the text and click Ok ... the countour of the text box that contains the track titles is there, but the text is invisible. If i right Click again and select Edit Text with the Tracl List Properties window ... the track titles are there... but they are not visible when I return to the Booklet or Back page. I tried different fonts, just in case a font color is the problem, the tracks text is not visible. If I select a style, the track text shows up again, but the minute I try to edit it, it vanishes again. It will return if Re-select a style again. This problem does not occur when I edit the tracks List text on the CD label view page. After editing the track list text and click OK the text vanishes, but I click Cancel the text stays. The Track List is checked (to be visible) in the Show/hide Smart Objects so whats next? Remove ECM10 again and go back to ECM9?
  10. I aslo intalled the updated version from on-line, but it did not resolved the problem. When I try to edit the Track List text using the Right Click, Properties or Double-Click the Track List text and I try to edit a track song title ,and then click Ok ... the whole tracks list becomes invinsible. I get a blank text box. If I click again it is shown in the properties ...but not on the actual label (either Back or Insert). I should mention that the problem is only with the track list that is created from the Auto-fill (smart text) and not with any other entered text in the Label Creator. Very Strange...and I am not happy.. I did not have this problem with EC9 Costas
  11. I installed the EMC10 and burned an Audio CD. I opened the Label Creator and used the AUTOFILL from Disk to bring in the song Track titles from the CD. I got the titles in the Label Creator, but when I try to edit the titles, using the text edit or Track List Properties, all song titles vanish. I get a white box. If use the Edit, Undo, few times I get the text back, but it seems that it does not let me change the sont title text in the track list. Can someone help? Thanks Costas
