    Mpeg2 Issues, Also Best Output Format For Mac?

    For the sake of anyone interested in the question of what to output for Macs, of the formats offered in EMC8, I decided to provide both AVI formats, DV Format AVI and AVI Generic, and both MPEG1 formats offered as well despite a significant quality difference. Thanks to those who replied.

    Mpeg2 Issues, Also Best Output Format For Mac?

    I'm sorry, but while I appreciate your info, this is veering away from my second question, which is what is the best file format in EMC8 to use for someone with a Mac? File transportation is a non-issue, really. At this point it's entirely a matter of *what* to send, not how to send. I am not and never have been a Mac user, so I know very little about compatible formats. This work isn't something I can upload anywhere on the web. The copyright holder I'm working with does not want anything released there at present.

    Copyright holder I'm working with does not want material on YouTube...

    Mpeg2 Issues, Also Best Output Format For Mac?

    Just posted to this but it has disappeared, hopefully it won't reappear twice... I'm sending by USB drive, YouTube isn't an option due to copyright. EMC8 limits to either MPEG1s or versions of AVI. The other EMC8 outputs apparently aren't supported by Apple. I'm thinking DV Format AVI or AVI Generic are the way to go. I don't think my friend has the newest OS & can't support MPEG2... Anyone want to second the motion? Debate is on the floor.

    sknis, thanks for the info. I did indeed just download the VLC player and the MPEG2s played fine. This is good to know, and I'm grateful for the many hours of brain sweat you just saved me. If anyone has any thoughts on the Mac format question, please let me know. One down, one to go...
  6. I’m running EMC8 Deluxe Suite. I’m PC-based & trying to send video files internationally to someone who has a Mac. *Lots* of fun. The problem is, I’ve rendered both Generic MPEG2 Good Quality, and DV Format AVI. The rendering seems to go okay. The DV Format AVI files play fine. The Generic MPEG2 Good Quality files won’t play in either QuickTime or WMP 11. Questions as follows: 1. Why I can’t play my MPEG2 files? Is it the player(s), or a rendering issue known in EMC8 Deluxe? How to correct (there aren’t any updates for EMC8 Deluxe, as several forum members corroborated recently)? 2. Out of the choices below, what would be the best file type to choose in the EMC8 pulldown menu for someone using a QuickTime on a Mac? 3. I tried a Generic MPEG1 Normal Quality & wasn’t satisfied with the quality. Would MPEG1 for Video CD play in a Mac running QuickTime, and would the quality be any better that Generic MPEG1? I didn’t want to waste time burning if someone could shoot me a quick answer… According to Apple the file formats supported by QuickTime are: · QuickTime Movie (.mov) · MPEG-4 (.mp4, .m4v) · MPEG-2 (OS X Lion only) · MPEG-1 · 3GPP · 3GPP2 · AVI · DV I was going to send DV Format AVI, Generic AVI Normal Size, & a (crappy!) MPEG1 Generic. Maybe also MPEG1 for Video CD. Would that about cover it? Out of these, which would be the best quality for viewing? Guessing AVI formats would be no different, and superior to either MPEG1 format... Corroboration would be nice. All help appreciated. TIA.

    Emc 8 Deluxe Patch?

    Well hello, GrandpaBruce, you've been a big help to me in the past. I've given up looking for a patch & I think someone who posted to my query is probably right-- whatever the fix was for EMC8 was built into the Deluxe version... The specific problem is I get a terrific video all set to go, and when I try to output the video stops rendering at 1 second and a couple of frames. Doesn't matter what format I try to output to (have tried .AVI, MPEG-1 small size, MPEG-2 Medium Quality, others...). I've had this problem intermittently before; sometimes removing effects seems to solve it. Big headache. Computer hardware guy says I have plenty of juice. I'm not very good with this aspect, so if you think it's a hardware issue be kind. My understanding is limited. I was having jumpy, jittery previews, and he put in a new video card that solved the problem. Tested the hard drive, cleaned up a lot of old programs... I can free up more space on the C drive today if that looks to be the problem. It's a pretty effects-intensive video, lots of slo-mo, saturation adjustments, overlays & effects, so thinking this might be the problem (read something a long time ago about different verisons of EMC having issues with certain effects) I created a version where I took out everything but dissolves, saturation and slo-mo. Still no go. Also tried removing & replacing large file-size JPEGs that might be too much for Roxio to handle with smaller files... I tried rebooting, and uninstalling & reinstalling EMC8 Deluxe. I'm out of ideas now, maybe thinking it's some production size adjustment I don;t know about, or a bad file that I just can't nail down. Too cranky to search the archives extensively, although ther's probably a bunch of info out there... Attached is a screen shot of what I'm seeing. roxio.doc
  9. Is there a specific patch for EMC 8 Deluxe Suite? I tried to download the EMC 8 patch & it was incompatible... If there is a patch, please send the link. TY.
