    Regarding Post#7, just who are the unbelieving? I don't recall reading anything about anyone disbelieving anything? I say just enjoy the beauty of it.

    Nxt Pro 3 - Maximum Video Build

    First off, I have no experience with NXT Pro. I use Roxio Creator 2011. If you are merely dragging photos to the Storyline in Videowave, then I would check the duration setting for each image. In Creator 2011 and Videowave, I believe the default setting is 6 seconds. After opening Videowave, click on the Production tab, go to Production Settings. A drop down menu opens where Slide Duration can be set or modified. I normally readjust the setting to 8 or 9 seconds for most slide productions to account for adding a Slow Dissolve transition. Adding a transition, such as Slow Dissolve, shortens viewing time.
  4. I am about to shoot some videos with my digital camera for the first time. The camera is capable of shooting AVCHD with five choices for 1920 x 1080. It can also shoot in MP4 file format, but would prefer using AVCHD format. There are five AVCHD shooting formats to choose from; 60i 24M, 60i 17M, 60p 28M, 24p 24M and finally 24p 17M Which one or how many of the above listed formats are compatible with VideoWave and MyDVD? Would perfer using either 60p 28M or 24p 24M. According to the info contained in David Busch's photography guide, 24p 24M setting produces the most cinema-like appearance in the final movie image. Both of the above use progressive scan.

    Record Setting Compatible With Videowave & My Dvd

    Thanks for your response, cdanteek. My previous posting was directed to muguggi. To answer your question, the record setting "24p 24M (FX) captures high-quality video at a rate of 24 fields/frames per second, captured progressively at a 24Mbps capture rate, and is said to produce the most cinema-like appearance in the final movie image. This is the most desirable setting to get the smoothest-looking image for action shooting, which is what is expected to be encountered when I shoot the videos. In otherwords, there will be people that are moving and not static. Hope this explanation is adequate.

    Record Setting Compatible With Videowave & My Dvd

    Your response does nothing to address my initial questions about what format is compatible or successfully works with VideoWave and My DVD. The reason for my question is that there have been forum questions related to video cameras where the type of video format does not work with VideoWave or possibly My DVD. Nor does your response answer my question about the AVCHD 1920 X 1080/24p setting as shown in the list of possible settings being the same as 24p 24M (FX)? Can you answer this question? It would appear you don't know, or else why suggest experimenting with different settings. Maybe someone on this forum can or can't answer my question.

    Record Setting Compatible With Videowave & My Dvd

    Yes, I know that a BD player is required and that a DVD only records 40 minutes of video. I do have one.

    Record Setting Compatible With Videowave & My Dvd

    It will be burned to a DVD using AVCHD. From the list you provide in the screen shot, it certainly shows a number of settings that the digital camera can accommodate. Is the 1920 x 1080/24p setting the same as 24p 24M (FX)? According to the specs of the camera this setting captures high quality video at a rate of 24 fields/frames per second, captured progressively at a 24Mbps capture rate. This is what I would like to attain.

    Videowave

    Just began a new slideshow production of a recent trip to Italy. During drag and drop of the digital images, and about 3/4 of the way through the production, the following error message appeared. "Runtime Error! Program: C\ etc. This application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way." Videowave then closed. Fortunately, I had saved the file just prior to this error and closing. Checked the various runtime error postings, but none seemed to apply. Here's my question, and it relates to a feature on the digital camera used to shoot the digital images. The feature is D-Range Optimizer and In-Camera HDR. This is used when the ambient light is not sufficient, such as inside a church and when a flash cannot be used. The camera shoots multiple images of the same object looking at various small areas to examine the contrast of highlights and shadows. The camera then makes adjustments to produce the best combination of brightness and tones and then combines the exposures. The result is two digital images, the original and the second that has been modified. The error occurred during the process of dragging and dropping of several of these images. Does anyone know if these modified images are causing the runtime error. The error has occurred three times and each time these types of images were being dragged and dropped. By the way, after getting them to the Storyline, the image that is under-exposed, which is the unmodified image, is deleted from the production. This may be just a coincidence, but when it occurred each time under identical conditions, it makes one wonder.

    Videowave

    You have your opinion, I have my actual experience with my computer. If while using Videowave to create a production and using it with software rendering and having a problem with runtime errors each time a hundred or so images are added to the storyline, while doing the same in hardware rending mode and not experiencing runtime errors, who is thinking so hard after all. Whatever that means? Completed one of the 5 slide show productions undertaken, including dissolve transitions and music tracks, followed by burning a AVHD disc. It played without a hitch in the DVD player and looked great on the TV.

    Videowave

    I really did not see a difference in rendering speed between software or hardware. At least not with what I am doing. Unless your comment about rendering 3D transitions is for informational purposes, this type of rendering is unrelated to my projects. I will do a google search to learn about these two rendering methods. By the way, since my previous posting I've been adding, subtracting and moving images within 5 different Videowave productions, all using hardware render, and at no time has an error occurred. This pretty confirms in my mind that it was the software render option causing the error problem. Thanks to all that responded for the comments and suggestions.

    Videowave

    What's the point of setting Videowave to the software option? I have just successfully added, moved and deleted several images in one of the 5 productions that have been created using the hardware option. At this juncture I'm satisfied that if using the software option the Runtime error will occur. Besides, is there an advantage to using the software option versus the hardware option? Other than the error issue, I don't note a difference.

    Videowave

    Let me clarify. I wrote that I wondered if the DRO images were causing the problem. I didn't know because this was the first time these types of images were used in a Videowave production. It is asked why two of the same images were added to the Storyline if one of the two are then deleted from Storyline. As explained, the image that is not correctly exposed is subsequently deleted. Adding the two identical images to the Storyline makes a side by side comparison of the enlarged images much easier in the viewing window. I suppose the edits could be done beforehand, but they were not. On the question about no error with the DRO images. I merely described a test production where only DRO images were dragged and dropped to Storyline to determine if indeed these types of images were causing the error. The error did not occur. However, also explained is that there are not very many of these types of images and it seems that the error occurred only after a hundred or more images. Again, I did not positively state the DRO images caused the error, I merely wondered. Now here is what I did find, and it may not be conclusive, but it is convincing. Videowave was opened to create an entirely new production. The Tools tab and then Options was selected. The next selection was Hardware. I had been using the Software selection. Media Selector was opened. Then the folder containing the digital images previously used was opened. This folder also contains several of the DRO modified images. Each image was individualy dragged and dropped to the Storyline. The entire 250 images within the folder were added to the production without a Runtime error. Was it a fluke? Decided to create a second new production using a different image folder, which also contained a number of DRO images. Success again. On the matters of performing disk defragmentation and Creator disk repair, neither of these two operations corrected the Runtime error as proven after again creating a production while using software rendering. I don't know why using Hardware versus Software rendering makes a difference, but it did. Presumably, selecting Hardware utilizes the videocard to do the rendering, while selecting software utilizes the Win 7 software? I really don't know how these two items function within Videowave.

    Videowave

    Only the DRO images were added one at a time. The error did not occur. The only difference is that there are only about a dozen of such images. By the way, all of the images were dragged and dropped to Storyline individually, not as a batch. I created another production using the images that were used when the error first occurred. The error occurred at a different point in the production than it did originally. This seems to rule out a corrupted image file. Just for my information, how would a JPEG file become corrupted. If it was corrupted wouldn't it show up in the image? And lastly, it was stated that a Runtime error can be caused by a multiple list of items. Is there a list of known items exist so that it can be referenced? What I have done since is perform disk defragment and do a couple Roxio Creator disk repairs. I have not yet created a production to determine if the problem has been solved. I do have another question. Could this error be related to the choice of using either the Hardware or Software option in Videowave?

    Videowave

    Here is the result of the test production. Opened Videowave, new 16:9 production. Dragged and dropped digital images from a folder containing no DRO modified images. Dragged and dropped 190 images when the following occurred. By the way, it was a photo file previously used to create a Videowave production without any problem occurring. The previously made Videowave production had over 250 panels of images. A window appeared showing: "The current production is empty or contains invalid files." There is also a "Details" button, which was pressed. Another small window opened showing absolutely nothing. A blank smaller window. Clicking on a OK button resulted in the computer freezing. The Task Mgr. indicated Videowave is Running. Memory in use showed 2.75GB or 34%. Closed Task Mgr. The same Videowave screen reappeared at the point where the "The current production, etal message appeared. Videowave was active because the File button would highlight, but nothing else could be done in the program. Clicked on the File button and exited from the program. A choice was then given of saving, canceling or not saving the file. Chose not to save and Videowave was successfully closed. It's evident that the described problem enumerated in a previous posting is not related to DRO modified images. Any thoughts on why the problem?

    Videowave

    Both the original and modified images are in the JPEG format. The point of my question must be related to the modified images or else I would not have asked the question. This is the first time having used such images while creating a production. The low light ambient conditions, and the fact that flash could not be used, dictated that the DRO feature was the only recourse to achieving satisfactory photos. Unless someone has previous experience using these types of modified photos with Videowave, and has experienced similar results, my only recourse is to create a test Videowave production using digitalimages that have not been modified using DRO to see if the Runtime error occurs. The next step would be to determine if the error can be replicated using just modified images.

    How To Create An Iso From A Sacd

    See Wikipedia's explanation of SACD. It might be possible to strip a copy of the audio, but it will be the normal 2 channel (stereo) sound, not the multichannel sound.

    Corel Paintshop Pro X7

    Corel is offering the software at a discount. I have Paintshop X4 and has worked sufficiently well. Anyone have experience with the software? Have read that installing the software results in constant pop-up offers from Corel, especially after support lapses.

    Corel Paintshop Pro X7

    One has to wonder why Corel even offers the opportunity to not get the pop up again if they are not going to honor it. That is just plain deception. I'm sorry now that I tried the update. Prior to the update there was no pop up. It's enough to discourage one from buying the new version of PaintShop. I believe I'll continue to research other software in the category.

    Corel Paintshop Pro X7

    Saw a reference to it in a review on Amazon website. I have PS X4 and updated the app and then later decided I did not like the later version. After doing the update, the Corel pop-up offers began to appear. Now every time I open up PS X4, there's the Corel offer to purchase their latest software. Clicking on the box that states not to show it again is meaningless. It's a minor disturbance but it is annoying.

    Video Clip Audio

    My granddaughter shot two video clips of the Eiffel tower with a Nikon dslr camera while visting Paris on Bastille day. The crowd gathered on this day was singing the French national anthem, which was captured on the video clips. Very cool. Unfortunately, one of the video clips was shot with the camera body held in a vertical position. Consequently, after downloading the images from the camera to the computer, the one video clip shows the Eiffel tower in the horizontal. A slide show was created with the images shot while in France, including the one of the two video clips. The one video clip that was shot with the camera body held in the vertical position was not added to the slide show because it won't rotate to the left in order to make the Eiffel tower appear in the vertical. Evidently it won't flip because of the audio. I doubt it can be done, but Is there a way that the audio can be removed from the video clip so that the video clip can be flipped to the correct position, and then the audio added back in thereafter? By the way, the audio is a m2ts file.

    Video Clip Audio

    It was a surprise to me also, that the rotation didn't work with the image that had a sound track while in Media Selector. Other regular images could be rotated. Generally, I do all image editing in Corel Paintshop Pro prior to using them in VideoWave. Consequently, I seldom have a need to do anything with the images in the Media Selector window nor once they have been dragged to Storyline. Because of being in a rush to complete two slideshows for my grandaughter, the images were not edited in Paintshop Pro prior to using them in VideoWave.

    Mea cupla, mea culpa. Accustomed to rotating images within Media Selector prior to dragging the image to Storyline. Within Media Selector window, the rotate function is greyed out (non-functioning). You'll have to pardon my sin of not recognizing that once the clip is dragged to Storyline it can then be rotated right or left. I shall in the future attempt to not offend anyone with a stupid question. Scarcasm is also appreciated.
  25. On another posting, a comment was made that some antivirus programs incorporate registry cleaners. A warning was made that continual use of a registry cleaner will mess up Roxio programs, and presumably other programs. It was recommended that if the antivirus program incorporated a registry cleaner, it should be turned off. Out of curiosity, I asked if anyone knew which brand(s) incorporated a registry cleaner? I believe it is an important question to ask so that viewers on this forum will know which brands to look for that have this feature. It was decided to search the web to look for a site that offered a comparison chart of features for the many antivirus programs offered, and one was found. Scrolling through at least 60 different antivirus programs, I could not find a single antivirus program that also incorporated a registry cleaner. The programs shown were some of the most well known brands and some of the lesser know brands. If there are such antivirus programs being offered, they must be some of the very lesser known brands and most likely not marketed extensively.
