    Question About Easy Vhs And Windows 10

    First question - does the digital camera require a Firewire port (digital tapes)? If so that could be an issue if you don't have a capture program that came with the camcorder. As for recommendations - You can always download the free Windows Movie Maker if you are looking for a basic but useful video editor. If you want more, Roxio Creator NXT 5 or NXT 5 Pro w2ill give you all you need - except if you want to do blu ray discs. You'll need to buy the plg in for that. I hate to say this but you i5 @2.5 and 4 g RAM with only 250 G hard drive will struggle with all but pretty simple editing. You can always buy an external hard drive and external blu ray burner the hlp. Roxio is owned by Corel but there is no free trial. . Corel@ has Video Studio free trail. They also own Pinnacle@ but I don't think there is a free trial. My suggestion is to look at other video editors and try a couple of them if they have free trials. Remember that the best software is the one that thinks like you do (intuitive for you).

    Question About Easy Vhs And Windows 10

    Kevin, If you are looking for a Video Editing program, then the one in EasyVHS is very, very basic. Are you capturing from good quality but old VHS tapes? If they are very old, have gaps or are damaged in any way, perhaps you should look further..
  3. Warniing the original poster is trying to get answers via private messages -- not cool. I suggested DivX using copy and convert.before I saw this thread. I also asked for a link to the articles he referenced saying 22 hrs is possible.
  4. 1) What player are you using for playback? 2) What have you selected in Windows as the default audio playback device? 3) Have you looked at those settings and have you tested it?

    Roxio is a corporation. Creator is a suite of programs. My DVD and Video Wave are two of the programs. There are many more programs in the suite. It is important to be specific. In Video Wave, you can select options and then do a graphics test and the program will check your hardware and software capabilities. You can select the one you want to use OR you can select the option to render using the "Enable to Enhanced Core... etc.) . You can select to output then export to a Video File. You have a choice of many options there. Select the one you want if you are NOT going to burn to a disc. You can select to "prepare for authoring: where you select what kind of disc you want to author. (AVCHD, BR or DVD) and the quality you want to render. In MyDVD, --After you select the type of disc, you can then go to settings, you can select hardware or software. Hint: if you have several project in VideoWave, use the same type of video file when you make the video files. It is up to you to determine if the quality of the discs make with software or with hardware are equivalent. Did you ever look at the help files in the program?

    You spent a lot of money on that video card; why not use it? You will get a little faster rendering in most cases. I really don't understand your comments about rendering via Roxio vs via computer..If you are using MyDVD then you are using Roxio with the video card. Both at the same time using your computer.
  7. The dxdiag.exe shows a lot of issues; perhaps one of those would solve the issue if they are addressed. Make sure you are not using a USB hub. Plug the device directly into your computers USB port on the back of your computer. I could not tell if your computer is a laptop. If so, ignore this. Update the drivers for your computer. I think that this will help (link). At least your audio device is at least 4 years older that what is available. Make sure that MS EDGE is closed when you go to capture. Go to Task Manager to close it. You may have to shut down and reboot and then not open it unless you need it. On my computer, it does not close and grabs my audio device. Make sure you have no built in microphone active. and nothing else is running that might have an affect on your audio. Comment -- You ave a lot of Windows errors. Look at the end of the dxdiag report. Those really need to be fixed to do more trouble shooting. These range from a Windows Update failure, an Outlook problem, an Edge problem, a network problem, etc. Google for the problems and you should be able to find how to fix them. (or go to a repair shop). One last question. Do you remember if you installed the drivers for the device BEFORE plugging in the device??? Come back after addressing these problems and if you still can't get the audio correct. EDIT: You still haven't answered Jim's questions. Might there be a language issue?
  8. Start with dxdiag.exe (link): No personal information other than the name of your computer. But Jim just asked you to answer the 3 questions he asked.
  9. that was a partial reply. to emphasise the importance (for me). Get rid oi the registry cleaner and reboot.; Turn off your anti-virus. Put your disc into your computer or open the program download for installation. Select to repair the program. Select the program options that you will use. After it finishes, reboot and turn on uour antivirus. Never us that registry cleaner. Note, you have a limited number of installs. Repair does not count as an install.
  10. Get rid of any and all of your registry cleaner -- both stand alone and imbeded in other cleaner programs.
  11. At this point, I think the issue is the resolution (size) of the images. In the past, large photos would give the same results that you are seeing. I'm not going to guess what the cut off is. Since you will be making a standard definition DVD, you do not need nor want large, high definition images. Make copies of your pictures and then edit them to a lower resolution. They can be as low as 720 by 480. Please note that I am relying on my memory because I do not have program loaded. Do you have the option to burn your project to an image file (ISO). That might also help since it takes the change in resolution/prepare the slide show from the actual burning of the disc.

    Creator Nxt 5 Missing Features?

    Hi Matt, Creator NXT 5 is a broken shell of what was one of the best video editor/disc creator programs going. If you bought it directly from Roxio, return it within 30 days. If you bought it at a big box store, try to return it indication that it doesn't do what it was supposed to. You may get lucky. Look at the "Copy and Convert" part of the program. It will allow you to set the format for blu ray but does not offer a menu. Or you can select DVD and get a menu but not the format. I could not find any combination of settings that give you what you are asking for. Perhaps someone else has a better idea. Sorry.
  13. How long is the slide show (time). Were all the images (photos) taken with the same camera and camera settings?
  14. Ah, the old ....005 exception code! Read this: from Wikipedia: Causes of "0xC0000005"If you have received this error on your PC, it means that there was a malfunction in your system operation. Common reasons include incorrect or failed installation or uninstallation of software that may have left invalid entries in your Windows registry, consequences of a virus or malware attack, improper system shutdown due to a power failure or another factor, someone with little technical knowledge accidentally deleting a necessary system file or registry entry, as well as a number of other causes. The immediate cause of the "0xC0000005" error is a failure to correctly run one of its normal operations by a system or application component. Hopefully a repair of the program will fix it. If you have a isw just insert it into the coputer and select repair whn offered. If you have the dowload, look for the installation file and you should get the rpir option.,
  15. Don't need the full log - just the General comments and the Details on at least one of the errors. By the way, have you simply tried to do a repair on the program. Make sure that your antivirus is off Please comment on "Registry Cleaner" use.
  16. Please post the dxdiag.exe text file from your w7 COMPUTER VIA "Windows 7 or Windows Vista. Click Start. , type dxdiag in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. " also Look at the events viewer logs on your computer Do you have any "bad" events listed? Same as above but type in events viewer. If you are using a registry Cleaner - either stand alone or a part of a program (like System Mechanic) or the Registry Cleaner part of CCleaner) - get rid of it ! Here is an example of what the events viewer log looks like. You should have some related to Roxio What do they say?

    Jpgs Load Erratically In Photoshow

    There is no way to prearrange the Photos according to name. The program is old and there have been very few improvements over the years. I'm afraid you are going yo have to drag them to where you want them and use the rotation control to turn them as necessary.

    Mydvd Editing

    Dear Pay -- Since MyDVD no longer has the functionality you need and there are no other options in Corel or Pinnacle, take a look at the free version of Cyberlink's Power 2 Go. It will burn DVD of the video files you have made. Extras such as Blu Ray will cost extra. This suggestion is within the guidelines (no cost software and lack of functionality in Corel products) for posting programs not in the Corel stable.

    Mydvd Editing

    You may find a version on EBay or other (be careful) but it is not available directly from Corel/roxio.

    Photo (Or Video) "sketch" Transition?

    How much are you willing to spend -- I don;t think that is a $100 program/solution. It is not a transition by itself. Look at Corel Draw. Go to the Corel forums and ask there.

    Mp4 Download Not Working

    Did you get the name of the Corel contact? Did the person say that Corel doesn;t support obsolete products? What Roxio product/program and version you are using. Please tell us why you need to download an mp4 file you just :"made" Download typically means moving a copy of a file from an online site (like YouTube) to your computer. Are you trying to download or upload TO an on-line site?
  24. This thread is over 2 years old and NXT 3 is 2 versions behind. I doubt that it can be downloaded from Roxio/Corel site anymore. If I remember correctly, NXT 3 is NOT Windows 10 compatible..
  25. The question is ambiguous. Clean install usually means that you are installing a program where there is no active previous program -- like totally removing the earlier version and then installing the new version.. Do you really want to do this? You are no going to save much space on your hard drive. Are you installing NXT 5 to cure a problem with NXT 4? The installation of Creator NXT 5. will remove any NXT 4 features that would conflict.
