    The Perfect Creator Pc?

    Even though ATI still supports Stream, AMD now has better support for OpenCL. I've never had issues with Roxio and my ATI card(s). I do have other software that utilizes ATI video card better.

    No Audio With Mts Files.

    Use a file sharing site like Wikisend, yousendit or upfordown. Most will allow 100mb files for free. Then post the link here.

    Max number of Chapters per TITLE is 99. This is set by the DVD standard - not Roxio. However, seems like a lot of people confuse Titles and chapters. You can add as many 'Titles' that you can fit on a disc. Just remember that you can only get ONE HOUR at the highest quality. More video will cause the software to compress the video more to make it fit.

    Convert Videowave 2D To 3D Projects

    I get exactly what you get, Clive. But it's probably as designed. Like Walt suggested, we probably can't select a 2D project. If you want to convert , choose a 2D video file and you will be prompted to do that. If you need to edit, start with Videowave first and create a .dmsm3d project which can then be added to MyDVD 3D project.

    Sony 3D Files

    I have a JVC MVC file and MyDVD doesn't have an option for this type. MyDVD will import, but the video image is squished regardless of which 3D option I choose. These files are not side by side, half-width , etc. It's a fairly new format. Although Creator NXT Pro just came out, not much has changed in the Video applications from the previous version. The MVC was designed so 2D editors can still open one stream to edit as a 2D project. Previous format didn't. From what I have read, MVC is now part of the Bluray 3D standard. Videowave and MyDVD will open the MVC I have as a 2D video just fine, but not as 3D.

    64 Bits!

    Can import 5.1, but output is only 2 Channel stereo.

    How To Render In 1920X1080?

    You won't find the word 'equal' in any of the VW output options. If the Vixia records at 1080p@17Mbps, then it it up to YOU to choose an output equal or close to that. Once you have output from VW, use those files in MyDVD and Choose 'Same as Original' as Sknis pointed out. MyDVD should NOT re-render the footage.

    3D Blu-Ray

    Suppose that depends on how you created the '3D rendered files'. There are several different ways to create 3D. If you choose 1080 side by side, technically that is a just a 2D file with left and right views at half width. But it's still just 1080 so can easily be burned like a 2D Bluray disc. In this case, you may have to set your TV to 3D manually. A 3D Bluray is a specific format and it could be a licensing issue why Roxio doesn't support it. Hopefully the next version will fully support all 3D formats for burning.
  9. The free version will remove any 32bit apps running on 64bit OS. You need the Pro version to remove 64bit apps. The Pro can also monitor installs and does a more thorough job of removing apps. I've never regretted buying the Pro version. I install/uninstall a lot of stuff. LOL

    Duration / Size

    That is the maximum for the highest quality video. With more compression, you can get more time, but the quality will suffer. For my personal taste, I wouldn't put more that 90min on a DVD. The bitrate falls to about 6.2MB which is acceptable in my opinion. You have to do some tests to see what is acceptable to you.
  11. Thanks - forgot about that handy little feature. Just output HD and MyDVD will down convert for you.

    Creator 2012 Does Not See My Rewriteable Disc

    I use Verbatim DVD+RW 8x. Very reliable and fast. I have several that get used every week recording TV shows for my sister. The +RW is more compatible with her DVD player. Those 30 cents would add up quickly just for watching a TV show once.
  13. If you want to edit in Premiere and burn in NyDVD, you can output to any standard format for the intended purpose. For example if you are creating a DVD, then output to MPEG2 in Premiere. If you are creating a Bluray, then output 720p or 1080p .m2ts. MyDVD will accept other file formats, but then MyDVD may have to re-render to conform to the disc type standard.

    Convert Mkv Files

    I've never heard of a camcorder using MKV either. There is a new 3D file format .MVC (Multiview Video Coding).

    Not Happy With Creator 2012

    Did you make sure that you have selected the Roxio capture device in the capture window?
