Not sure if anyone out there is still using Roxio Creator 2012, but I think it is still the best video editing software out there. I bought Roxio Creator NXT 5, but the DVD editing software is a joke. Here's the problem:
I created a movie in VideoWave which has 7 .mp4 files along with some photos that have pan and zoom on them. The video also has background music (.mp3 files) on the music track.
I added the VideoWave Movie to a MyDVD project - 16:9 aspect ratio
I used the menu style Projector
In MyDVD, I created 15 chapters, which generated 5 chapter menus.
I went into each chapter menu and renamed them from the default 1, 2, 3 to actual text
I tried to burn it to disc (long ago learned you can't burn to DVDs directly).
It hangs at 95% after getting through 2 chapter menus
Windows says the app is not responding, but VideoWave still consumes 25% of the CPU if you look at the Task Manager Window.
HP Pavilion p6630f, with an Interl Core i3CPU @3.20 GHz
6 GB RAM
Plenty of disk space, I cleaned out all temp folders and defragged the disc. 415GB free
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 - drivers are up to date
All updates have been done. I looked at other articles and tried uninstalling and reinstalling Roxio, and that had no effect.
I've tried burning the disc with various combinations of options:
Render using Hardware / Enable Intel Enhanced turned on / Roxio AVC SmartEncode turned on
Render using Hardware / Enable Intel Enhanced turned off / Roxio AVC SmartEncode turned on
Render using Software / Enable Intel Enhanced turned off / Roxio AVC SmartEncode turned on
Render using Software / Enable Intel Enhanced turned off / Roxio AVC SmartEncode turned off
Any suggestions would be appreciated! I've spent a couple of weeks trying to get this to work!
