  1. You can't create a .ISO project from Videowave. You can only save your project, as a .dmsm file. However, you can OUTPUT your project (not save) to any of many video formats. I don't have Videowave here, but on the top menu bar, you'll see an icon that looks like a movie reel. If you hover your mouse over that, it'll say, "Output". Click on that icon. That will bring up a dialog box where you can select the output type for your video file, and let you name it, and select the output folder for it. Do that, it'll take awhile to render. I'd select the option for, "MPEG DVD High Quality." (I'm paraphrasing here since I don't have it available to open up, but you should find the one I'm thinking of.) Then play that video file in VLC and let us know how it looks.
  2. Next question, what are you bringing in to MyDVD, the Videowave project, or a rendered video that you've previously output from Videowave? In either case, what happens if, while you're in Videowave, you render your project to an MPEG file, and then play that file in VLC? How do the pan/zoom/transitions look?
  3. Just a weird thought here, but what happens if you recreate the path it's looking for? Is it just looking for a path? Or a specific file?
  4. You're correct, that's in Videowave, which is where one does pan and zoom, and transitions, which is where he is getting flickering. I wasn't addressing the MyDVD issue.
  5. Do ALL transitions and pan/zoom effects flicker? I don't really have any great ideas of what might be going wrong. Are you doing your project in 4:3 or Widescreen format? Could you try a very short test, with only 3 or 4 pictures? Take each of those pictures, and resample them to 50% of their original size (work on a copy of the original), and use those reduced size pictures in your test. Do your pan and zoom, and a transition, and see if that makes any difference after you render it? In MyDVD, you can select, the "DVD, No Menu" project to avoid any extra work there. My thinking is that by reducing the size of the image, you'll reduce the processing needed to render your video. With software rendering selected, I really don't think it should make a difference, but it should be a quick test.
  6. So, if it's flickering with the video before putting it to a disc, then the problem is somewhere in the rendering process. Since you say it flickers when you're doing a pan and zoom, then I'm guessing you're creating a slide show type video? Using still photos? What are the average dimensions (in pixels) of the photos you're using?
  7. I just dragged a MyDVD folder onto VLC, and it started playing the video without any problems. Also version 2.21 (Weatherwax). I'm not certain if it's an AVCHD folder, or a BR folder. But again, the discussion has been DVD, not Blu-Ray, unless Smokytoo comes back to tell us otherwise.
  8. He said DVD in his first post, as does the rest of the thread, not Blu-ray. Not sure if VLC supports Blu-Ray ISO. I just tried, and it didn't do well with an AVCHD .iso file. VLC after 2.0 supports Blu-Ray playback, according to what I've found on-line.
  9. Or, if you have the free VLC player installed, you can open the .ISO file directly with VLC. Media -> Open File.
  10. If you mean it looks fine in the preview window as it's rendering, I'll suggest that that means almost nothing. Hopefully, you're rendering to either a folder set, or a .ISO file first, before writing your DVD? If so, you can preview your rendering before writing to a disc, that way you'll know if the problem is with the disc/burner, or with the rendering itself. My guess is that the problem is with the rendering, since the disc actually plays.
  11. What if you play your DVD on a set-top player? 1) does it play? 2) does it flicker?

    Just Purchased Nxt 4

    My apologies for mis-reading AVC and saying VLC.

    Just Purchased Nxt 4

    I'm not sure joining your completed Videowave videos would be any more cumbersome in Videowave than it would be in VLC. I would suggest you output each of your shorter segments first, as you would need to do for VLC, and then bring those completed "manageable chunks" back into Videowave to put them together. Then you've already rendered the video/text/audio, into the shorter segments, and you'd bring the rendered segments together. As for the burning portion, right... that's a different issue that Jim has presented a suggestion for.

    Just Purchased Nxt 4

    You can do all of the video "joining" you need in VideoWave. Just add the videos you want into a new project, add whatever transitions you want, then output that to a new video file, and bring that single file into MyDVD.
  15. Steve88, another question. What if you scan into another application than the "Solution Center"? For instance, most scanner applications can be invoked by any program that would expect a picture, like an image editing program. If you scan into something else, do you still get a crash? Trying to isolate the problem to the "Solution Center" or to the driver.

    Recording Cuts Off Beginning Of Tape

    Poco, you started another topic. Suggestions were put forth. Questions were asked. Please return to that topic and continue the discussion there. We'd like to help you, but you need to help us help you. It's here (link) if you're having trouble finding it.
  17. What happens if the scanner driver/software is reinstalled after NXT3 is installed? I'm not terribly hopeful that that will help, since uninstalling NXT3 solves the scanner problem, but it would be something worth trying. (I had an issue once with a Canon printer and an old version of Adaptec Easy CD Creator on Windows 98, that was dependent on the order of installation.)

    Recording Cuts Off Beginning Of Tape

    Also... what happens if you only try to record the first 10 minutes of your video. Do you indeed get the first 10 minutes? Does this happen on multiple videos? If you've done the same capture multiple times, does the video always start at the same place every time? If so, is there any chance you see a drop-out, or noise on the tape when it plays through the few seconds before that spot?

    Rip Cd Problem

    Actually, check your save path, you have, "F:\WaltMaken\Music\CD4MP3\ \My CD..." See that empty or blank folder name in the middle there, right after "CD4MP3"? (Bolded, in red.) I think Windows is complaining about that part of the path.

    Just Purchased Nxt 4

    Donnaj, not sure what your reason was for moving to NXT 4. If you didn't upgrade to Windows 10, then your previous version should continue to work fine, and if you purchased from Roxio/Corel within the last 30 days, you can return your purchase. If you did move to Windows 10, from what I've heard, Creator 2012 will apparently run fine. Just dig up your old disc(s) and install that.

    Creating A Professional Audio Cd

    An Audio CD does not contain cover art. If Windows Media Player, or another player application is showing you cover art, it is because it is searching online, and finding a match for the CD that is being played, and it is then downloading that cover art, and possibly the track/title information. When you write an Audio CD, if you have it set to write CD-Text data, then the artist-title-track information is included on the CD, but Windows media player does NOT read CD-Text data. Again, it gets it from the internet after matching information about the CD (number of tracks, their length, etc.) and downloading it. Your CD, unless you've simply copied a commercial CD, won't match any searches. If you check with some of the on-line databases (Gracenote, etc.), you can actually upload the information about your CD. I don't know what it takes to do that, it may involve money, it may not, I've never attempted, or wanted, to do that. MP3 files can point to cover art. If you download an MP3 album, it may include cover artwork, and be pointed to by those MP3 files. But the Red Book Audio CD specification doesn't contain any provisions for cover art. Hope that helps!

    Roxio Game Capture Hd Pro, Ps4 Audio But No Video

    Are you getting video on the TV connected to the output side of the RGC HD Pro?

    Roxio Game Capture Hd Pro, Ps4 Audio But No Video

    Are you saying you had been running on battery power previously? Or that you're now using a different computer to capture with? If you had been running on battery power, then yes, plugging into wall power is considered a requirement for capturing. Laptops will often go into a lower power mode on the USB ports when on battery power, which doesn't provide enough power for the RGC HD Pro device.

    Windows Update

    Assuming it's the same problem I've seen, you can stop it by going into Services, find the "Windows Update" service, and stop it. At one point, there was actually an update that was supposed to fix that problem, which was causing our PCs at work to go into "slower than molasses" mode. Of course, our IT group didn't authorize that update for months. (Services can be found this way: Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services)
