    3D Related Questions And More

    Does the new Creator PRO NXT offer the following features: - a blu-ray plug-in for Cineplayer - create 3D videos/movies in Videowave in 1920x1080 60i blu-ray format - create 3D menus in MyDVD in blu-ray format
  2. Trying to create a Blu-ray DVD and want to change the botton highlight colors. But both the Botton Highlights and Transitions sections in the Settings menu are always greyed out. Why?
  3. Very interesting design Jim , someone must have overlooked to extend this feature to BD & AVCHD project types. The workaround I have employed is to "Change the Project Type To DVD", change the highlight colors, and then "Change the Project Type back to Blu-Ray". It seems to work!

    3D Blu-Ray

    I absolutely do. Every one of my vacvation HD 2D video has traditionally occupied 2-3 BD disks (25GB each) with Creator. I just picked up a 3D camcorder and TV and am wondering if it was worth the expense. On another note, I just took my 3D footage and created a 3D (16:9) MPEG2 HD 1080p file in Videowave. Then I inserted this file into a 2D BD project in MyDVD and burned a disk. It worked. I guess my question is that, why do we even need the 3D option in MyDVD to create menus. Why can't we create 2D menus in BD and use 3D rendered files in Videowave? Am I missing something here?

    3D Blu-Ray

    Any reason as to why Roxio does not implement 3D on Blu-Ray. 3D videos are so large to start with, why be restricted to a 8.7GB DL DVDs? Is there a technical reason or is it just a matter of priority. Maybe 2013?

    Blu-Ray Plug-In

    Just downloaded the Blu-Ray and additional Styles plug-in for $19.99. When I run it to install, it comes back with the following error: "Setup cannot find a valid version of this software to upgrade. Please make sure that you are using the correct upgrade version." I have already installed Creator 2012 Pro and it works fine.

    Blu-Ray Plug-In

    Yes that is it. Thanks for providing the support number. I called them and they said that the new 2012 plug-in will not allow you to playback Blu-ray and they refunded my money. I installed the 2011 plug-in and it works with 2012 Pro.
  8. When I Add an .MKV Video file into a new VideoWave project, the audio disappears. Has anyone tried this?
  9. I just downloaded AC3filter ver. 1.62b but nothing happened. The MKV file I am trying to play is in DTS format. What is the next step once I have the AC2filter installed?
  10. Has anyone run into the following problem: - create a Blu-ray project in MyDVD 2011 - add the necessary movies to the menus that were previously created in VideoWave - change menu background to a photo that you have saved on disk - burn project to disk (save it to a disk image) - playback the ISO file on CinePlayer (equipped with the Blu-Ray Playback plug-in), and voila, the changed menu backgrounds show up as black screens. I have done the above hundreds of times while on Creator 2010 and with no problems. Even when I play the project while inside MyDVD, I do not see this happening. Only after burning to disk on 2011 and playing it on Cineplayer. Has anyone seen this? and do you have a suggestion?
  11. Got it! I had to re-convert all of the original Videowave 2010 files using VideoWave 2011 and rebuilding the DVD menus in MyDVD. Once you move to 2011 you have to start all over with 2011 tools.
  12. I have. My project consists of multiple sub-menus, each submenu has a different background photo. Non of them displays except for the one on the main screen (first menu screen). I have also noticed that when you burn an ISO image to disk in 2011 it runs at least twice as fast as the 2010 version. This is why I prefer to move to 2011. I'll keep trying though. Thanks
  13. Can someone help me get around the issue I'm having with the Settings Dialog Box in MyDVD. - when editing a DVD menu in MyDVD, I can go to both Main or Style tabs in the Settings Dialog Box (far right via View -> Settings) and change any value associated with the menu on these tabs (e.g. Transition, Link, Highlight, Thumbnail, Text). However, all of these values get grayed out when editing a Blu-Ray menu in MyDVD (or an AVCHD for that matter). Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

    Misc Blu-Ray Questions

    You're a genius. The Roxio Disk Image Loader (from the Tools Menu) actually mounts the Blu-ray image and runs it beautifully. Thanks

    Misc Blu-Ray Questions

    When burning an iso disk for a Blu-Ray project in MyDVD, does it transcode the videos and audios twice. It seems that it reaches to a certain percentage point in the rendering process (around 60-65%) and all of a sudden it starts back around the 10% stage. I have not set the dual phase option in the project properties. This only happens with Blu-Ray not AVCHD.

    Misc Blu-Ray Questions

    Has anyone encountered the message "The application could not read this copy protected disc. Please clean the disc or try another disc" in Cineplayer BD Edition?

    Misc Blu-Ray Questions

    Great idea about the signature Steve, and thanks for the response. I hope my new signature with the computer specs shows up. I don't have a Blu-Ray burner yet (just ordered a Pioneer BDR-205 12X burner from eBay last week). However, I am using the Virtual Clone Disk software to mount the newly created ISO image and opening it with CyberLink PowerDVD 9 (supposed to support Blu-ray) and does not recognize the ISO. I will test it with the proper Blu-Ray burner once installed and will update this post. I do not have teo pass encoding turned on. I tried a much smaller test run, and it seems that it is doing a double run (maybe audio first, then videos). It does seem to show the same display in the preview pane.

    Misc Blu-Ray Questions

    I see the same thing as in the second part. All the videos and stills. The system just completed burning the Blu-ray ISO image. Cineplayer does not seem to be able to read Blu-Ray (strage?). I mount the ISO as a virtual clone disk and try to read it with Cineplayer, but it won't (this works for DVDs and AVCHDs).
  19. In order to see the "MPEG-2 High Definition 1080i" option you must create the project in 16:9 format. See if this helps
  20. I have been running into this problem for some time now. It got to the point that I switched softwares and tried a whole host of others (Sony, Pinnacle, Adobe, ...). Every time I came back to Creator 2010 as it was the most intuitive to use. I believe now I have finally found the problem. As you started above, the issue is when creating AVCHD projects on DVD (it may be on Blu-ray as well but I have not tried it yet). The real problem that causes "Project_BuildToDevice() AuthorScript call failed. Error while Writing Format." error to be generated is when you insert an MPEG-4 files into MyDVD menus. MPEG-4 files are generated when creating AVCHD 1920x1080i type of files (either in MyDVD or in VideoWave). Try avoiding MPEG-4 (.mp4) files when working in Creator 2009 or 2010 altogether. Instead use MPEG-2 High Definition 1080i (do not use 1080p as it will fail) files always. I have compiled my findings in great detail and if followed carefully, it will work every single time. I have tested this over and over. Here are the steps: 1) Slide shows (still photos) -------------------------- - when editing still photos into slides and you wish to achieve the highest picture quality, following are the steps to follow: - create a project in Videowave and setup a slide show as usual. Once the slide show is completed save the project. - Export the project (Output --> Export as) into a video file using "MPEG-2 High Definition 1080i" format (do not use AVCHD 1920x1080i as it will create an MPEG-4 file and will generate "Project_BuildToDevice() AuthorScript call failed. Error while Writing Format." error later on when you start burning an ISO image) - Once you've completed all of your slide shows in Videowave and exported them as MPEG-2 HD 1080i files, goto MyDVD and create an AVCHD project and create your menus. - Insert the slide show Video Files (Add Video/Photo option) into the menu and organize them with audio and transitions as usual. - When completed, save the MyDVD AVCHD project and burn it into an ISO file. 2) Videos ------ There are two types of video sources that you can create from: Standard Definition source (DV tapes) and High Definition source (hard drive SD Card).In both cases, if you are creating an AVCHD project in MyDVD you need to do the following: a) Standard Definition Source - when creating videos from SD tapes, import/capture the video in "DV AVI" (not MPEG2) format onto the computer hard drive. You do not need to use Videowave to create video files for SD videos. Simply use MyDVD and insert the DV AVI files into the menus and edit them. High Definition Source - when creating videos from HD source, from MyDVD, simply import them in there native format and insert them into the menus and edit them (into chapeters, etc). Alternatively, you can also use VideoWave. Import them into VideoWave or if already imported simply add them into a new project and create the video, then export the project as an "MPEG-2 High Definition 1080i" video file (do not use AVCHD 1920x1080i as it will create an MPEG-4 file and will generate "Project_BuildToDevice() AuthorScript call failed.Error while Writing Format." error later on when you start burning an ISO image) 3) CineMagic --------- - Use VideoWave to create the Cinemagic show and then export it as an "MPEG-2 High Definition 1080i" file. Use this file in MyDVD to build the AVCHD program. I hope this helps all of the frustrated yet loyal users of Roxio Creator 2009/2010.
