    Adding Subtitles

    THANKS. "Any Video Converter" did the trick. I haven't made a dvd yet, but I played it on my computer and all the subtitles were overlayed on the video. The program is pretty self explanatory and easy to use AND fast. Under the audio options you need to scroll down to subtitles and then add the subtitle file. You also can change fonts, color, location etc of the subtitles. If you want a quick crib sheet for how to do it go to this website http://www.any-video-converter.com/add-srt-subtitle-to-output-video.php Once again thanks for the help. Jerry

    Adding Subtitles

    Ok, if somebody can point me to a link that answeres this question then thank you, and I apologize for asking something obvious, BUT I've searched eveywhere for an answer. How do I take an avi file and add an .srt file to it and produce subtitles overlayed on the finished product. If I have to convert the srt or the avi file to something different that is ok. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Oh I have creator pro 2012.

    Blu-Ray Aspect Ratio

    Does anybody know how to import a 4:3 video into a blu-ray project and maintain the aspect ratio. Any video I add to a production is automatically stretched to the full screen width and results in distorted video. I know with photos you can choose "fit to screen" or "bars". I have a mix of high quality video(16:9), high quality photos(not sure of the aspect ratio), and some old camcorder video at 4:3. I want to mix these into one production. I looked at all the tools in Roxio 2012, searched the web, and this forum, BUT have not been able to find a solution or "work around". Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks Jerry

    Merging 2 Video Wave Files

    My question has been answered. I was hoping to avoid the step of converting each project into a movie then importing the movies into mydvd. I do build large projects into multiple constructs. So what you are saying is not a big deal, just a little inconvenient. I usually try to keep my slide shows to under 30 minutes(my estimate for a bored audience). I set each slide to show for 3.5 seconds. Given some transitions and titles that means a project of about 425 photos for a half hour. This one is abnormally long since it is a 5 week European trip with multiple families. So I will be using chapters and probably writing to blu-ray. Thanks for the answer Jerry

    Merging 2 Video Wave Files

    This topic is about 4 years old so I'm hoping some improvements in videowave have been made to make this more user friendly. I want to build a very large 600 photo movie and want to do it in pieces(productions). Is there any way to add several productions into videowave and then save them as one production. Thank you Jerry

    Thanks everybody, everything is well. I burned the project to blu-ray with the setting at hq, and got the results I expected. Very nice high definition photos. I wish that drop down box at the bottom called out the resolution like it does for AVCHD. At least I now know what went wrong with my first production. I will be careful with the resolutions while saving to other formats. thanks Jerry

    You are correct I did post the first question, by mistake, in the toast forum. Sorry for that. I must be screwing up my settings. I may have made the first bd using "fit to disc" or it could just be my old eyes. I am connected by hdmi so that should not be a problem. I'll try it on bd again today. Thanks for the feedback and happy thanksgiving Jerry

    I've been struggling with making blu-ray dvds that have the resolution I expected. I've been totally lost until this thread. I built a project in videowave then exported it to mydvd blu-ray. I then took the same project and exported it again to mydvd but wanted a standard dvd. When I viewed them using a blu-ray player to a 1080p hdtv they looked exactly the same. After reading this thread I exported the same project to mydvd but decided to do AVCHD on a standard dvd. I was wowed by the improved resolution over the blu-ray project. I'm going to keep an eye on this thread, and hope for an answer about the blu-ray productions. Thank you Jerry

    I take photos using a 10 megapixel Sony A100 DSLR. Yesterday I built a project in Videowave then transferred it to MyDVD and produced a BluRay 16:9 movie. I went back to Videowave loaded the same project then transferred it to MyDVD and burned a standard 16:9 DVD. Now my problem. I cannot detect a resolution difference when either disc is played on my bluray player to a 1080p Vizio 42" TV. They are both beautiful, but I am wondering if I am doing something wrong and might possibly improve the resolution on the bluray disc. Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you Jerry
