    Wideowave Upload To Youtube

    Thanks! We did try the MPEG format at 1080p. The HD options, at least those considered preferred by youtube, are somewhat limited. Hopefully you'll have better luck.....

    Wideowave Upload To Youtube

    OK guys, I'll give this a shot. My son did the work but he showed me the process. He collected the video clips with his new HD Camcorder, a KUZO VCC-008-SE Full 1080p HD Camcorder. The camcorder took the clips as AVI files. When my son tried to work with these in Videowave, the clips would play for about 3 seconds and then freeze. I suggested he convert the clips to another file type so he converted them to WMV files using Roxio Copy and Convert program and then they worked great. Here is some info on the original AVI file, in case it's of any importance. Here is a screen shot of the Copy and Convert Video window where he converted his AVI files to HD 1080 WMV files. Other than selecting the WMV HD 1080 type, he used defaults for the rest of the settings as shown. Here is a copy of the conversion in progress. He then opens Roxio Video Wave (2012 Pro), selects Create New Production with a Format - Widescreen 16:9. He leaves the other Production Settings as default setting (e.g., he doesn't change them). See screen shot. He then selects add photo/video and hits OK (in this case I selected the WMV file I converted previously named Clip0010_1). See screeshot. Then he added a couple of intro word slides with the special effects. I'm not sure how to do that so I'm just adding a couple of special effects to the video clip since I know the special effects will be altered as they were before. So I first Add Video Effect "Burn From Left" (see screen shot). Then select Add To Production. See screen shot. Then I add video effect Fireworks Windy Night and select add to production. See screen shot. At that point I save the production as Test 1 and hit play and the video effects display as intended. See screen shot. I then go up and select Output and choose export as a Video File and choose Windows Media Video 9, 1920x1080 VBR. I don't change any of the other default settings in the window. See Screen shot. I then select Create Video File and it opens and starts Rendering. See screen shot. Takes about 3 minutes for the short production to render. WMV File siz is 221 MB (original imported WMV clip was 121,772 KB which I believe is about 122 MB). See screen shot of file properties. The I play the created file. All looks good except for video effects. Fire stays very low in bottom left corner and doesn't shoot up through frame and fireworks are just some scattered white flecks along the bottom of the frame. See attached creen shot. OK, That's it. I'm sure I over did it but hopefully it's enough to find the problem. I have to go take a nap now (LOL, I wish!) Thanks!

    Wideowave Upload To Youtube

    I need to make a correction here. I had reported that the problem with the special effects only occurred after uploading to youtube and that the video file my son had created (mpg file) via export as a video file was fine. In fact, the exported video file was not fine and had altered special effects just like the direct upload to youtube. I figured this out by creating my own short video in videowave (16:9), adding the same special effects and exporting this time as a WMV file (Windows Media Video 9, 1920x1080 VBR), since the WMV was a preferred youtube file. The rendered file had altered special effects so I went back and looked at my son's mpg file and discovered the same was true. So it appears that all attempts to create a high definition video file have resulted in special effects problems. Hopefully this will help diagnose the problem? Thanks!

    Wideowave Upload To Youtube

    Just took a quick look on youtube and found this info via the help section: "Here is a list of some well-known formats that YouTube supports: •WebM files - Vp8 video codec and Vorbis Audio codecs •.MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - Typically supporting h264, mpeg4 video codecs, and AAC audio codec •.AVI - Many cameras output this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM •.MPEGPS - Typically supporting MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio •.WMV •.FLV - Adobe-FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio" I'll have my son export his file as a high resolution MPEG4, MOV or WMV file and then try to upload this to youtube. It looks mpeg2 may be supported as well but the heading of MPEGPS is greek to me. If it works, it may mean it's best not to use the youtube uploader in videowave if you are using special effects. Remember that he also uploaded directly from his videowave production and not a video file and got the same results. More to come....

    Wideowave Upload To Youtube

    Thanks Jim! You definitely got it right. What he sees on his youtube version is the altered special effects (small fire columns and a few bits and pieces of the fireworks display). As I said, the special effects look great in his videowave production and even the mpeg file he created via export to a video file. I think I mentioned that he also uploaded the mpeg file to youtube with the same effect. I know that youtube doesn't give you upload options like HD or level of resolution - you basically just do a straight upload. I assume youtube also renders the file after upload and this could be creating the problems. The question may be whether the problem lies with youtube rendering or whether videowave special effects are not compatible with youtube? My son is using 2012 Creator Pro. Has anyone else created a HD 1080p 16:9 production with special effects from 2012 Pro and uploaded to Youtube with similar or different results? Thanks!!! Steve

    Wideowave Upload To Youtube

    Thanks! I played paintball once and that was enough Yes - production is done in videowave at 16:9. In addition to uploading directly to youtube from videowave, he has converted the production to a High Definition MPEG-2 1088p video file and uploaded to youtube from his hardrive. Both methods result in the same alteration of the special effects. He has only three effects added: 1-Fire - burn from left 2-Fire - burn from right (these first two are on the same slide) 3-Fireworks - windy night Here is the web address of the video. The special effects are on just the first couple of scenes. I have never added a link so I'm not sure if this is the correct way to do it or not: Any help you can provide would be much appreciated by me and my son. Thanks!!!! Steve
  9. Hi, Posting for my son here. He has Creator 2012 Pro. He prepares videos of paintball matches and uploads them to youtube. He recently got a HD camera and was very excited to upload 1080p videos instead of his previous 480p limitations. He had some trouble origially creating a 1080p production until we found out from other forum memebers that the production had to be a widesreen 16:9 production. After figuring out that issue he is now able to produce a 1080p video and upload it to youtube, however once the video is uploaded, the special effects (fire and fireworks) are distorted. The flames are much smaller and only bits and pieces of the fireworks play on the youtube video. Can you guys help? Thanks!! Steve
  10. Hi all! The techies at Roxio haven't been able to help me so I'm hoping someone here can..... My story - Installed Roxio Creator in July and it worked great up until about a week ago. I was accessing a videowave production I had created and the program couldn't find my videoclips (which still in the same folder as always, btw). I tried some workarounds I read about here on the forum but nothing would work, Finally I uninstalled and then tried to reinstall creator hoping that would take care of my original problem (e.g., videowave not able to find video segments in an existing production). Since then I have not been able to successfully install roxio. Setup starts fine with the installation of directX and then starts on a rollback of microsft.net v3.5 SP1. During this window is when I get the error message which says roxio creator setup has been interrupted…………. (see attached PDF for this and other screenshots). I finally decided to do a system restore to get the program back hoping that if I went far enough back I could predate whatever caused the original error in videowave. After restoration, the program was back, but still non-functioning (same issues). I tried to repair the program with the original creator disc but then got a missing rsl.dsl message. I have since uninstalled and tried to reinstall (again). As I stated, the error messages are attached in a PDF document. When trying a reinstall, I first get a message that the program cant connect to the internet when I try to look for updates (my internet is working fine). This kicks me out of setup and I restart installation, this time skipping the update. Setup starts fine with the installation of directX and then starts on a rollback of microsft.net v3.5 SP1". During this window is when I get the final error message which says roxio creator setup has been interrupted…………. (see PDF). I am working on a DELL Latitude E6510, running Windows 7 - 32 bit, 4 GB of RAM, 149 GB of hard drive free space. I diasble the firewall, antivirus, and all other start programs before I try to install. I have searched near and far to delete all roxio and sonic files and forders, including those pesky hidden files. Hopefully somebody here can assist. Thanks! Steve
