  1. 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. Machine specs: Windows 7 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! THANKS!
  2. Thanks again for your help! I finally did get it work. Here's what I did differently: I started over with the videowave project as the only movie in the MyDVD project. I created chapters, but did not have it generate chapter menus. I manually created the menus all rooted from the main page. I put 5 chapters in each one. In doing this, I had to manually change the chapter background to be the theme background I wanted. I manually added all the chapter links and Home/Next/Prev buttons When I tried to burn it to an .iso file, I received the following error message: 8004520c Error while Encoding Movie 1. This is the first time I had received an error message in this whole process. I googled it and saw another post in here that the way to get around this was to launch MyDVD by double-clicking on the DVD project name instead of first launching MyDVD and then opening my project within the app. So, my double-clicking on the project, I was able to burn it to an .iso file and it worked!!! I've edited it 3 different times since, and have burned it 3 times. I will go back and see if I can get the original project with Roxio generated menus to work. But enough for today. Done in-time for Father's Day! Happy Father's Day to all!! Thanks again for your help, I will update this one more time!
  3. I am burning to an ISO file each time, and that is where it hangs. I only burn an actual DVD from the .iso file once it is successfully created. The file is from home movies, and we interspersed some background music for various scenes. Each time the music changed, I added a new chapter so you could go right to a certain segment. Yes, each chapter segment is very short!
  4. I tinkered with the MyDVD settings (i.e. Hardware rending, using the SmartEncoding, etc), and it didn't seem to make any difference. What I did notice however, is that the first two menus are rendered OK, but it hangs when it gets to the 3rd menu. I noticed this in the original project as well. I suppose I could cut down on the number of chapters, but I was hoping it would work as designed I could also try to manually add the sub menus and chapters. Let me know if you think that would be worth the effort. thanks!!!
  5. OK - still no luck. Here's what I tried: Put the videos and some photos into a new videowave file (the videos only total 28 minutes). Added 1 song for background music. Saved the videowave project. Exported it as an Mpeg for DVD better quality - which was at 8 mbps Created a new MyDVD project. Used a different menu scheme. Set the quality to HQ Added this new test video. Created random chaptes (15 of them) MyDVD still hung at 95% during the encoding menus If I create a MyDVD project with just this test video and no chapters, it burns to disc just fine. Feels like my some setting somewhere is causing the problem with rendering chapter menus. Any other suggestions? I really appreciate your help!!!
  6. OK, so I'm on to Plan C at this point. Didn't have any luck with Plan A and B. What format do you suggest I export the original VideoWave project in? I'd prefer the highest quality possible. There's plenty of room on the DVD as it only takes up about 2GB. thanks again for your help!!
  7. I'm on it! Thanks for the suggestions! First - I'll delete the .dat file and try opening MyDVD and burning it again. If that doesn't work, I'll move on to Plan B. Thanks!!
  8. Still did not work. I let it run for 8 hours and it got to 95% complete and hung. Any other suggestions? Appreciate the help!!
  9. Let me take that back... I had skipped the step of repairing the installation. I just did that, and now the project completed. Took less than an hour. I will now reboot and try the original project...
  10. Thanks for your reply! Appreciate the help! I followed your suggestions, and did not get very far. I selected the 7 videos and tried the Convert Video, and it is still stuck on the first one. It has been stuck for 3 hours. VideoConvert13.exe is at 25% CPU usage and has logged 2:56:52 time. I have been able to create a DVD without chapters. These problems started coming in when I added chapters to the project. Open to other suggestions! I will try to do this with just the first video now and see what that does. thanks again for your help!!!

  12. I've used Roxio products successfully in the past. I'm doing some basic edits here. First I created a slideshow with pictures, movies and audio in VideoWave. Then I added the movie to a new DVD Project in MyDVD. I was able to save that and preview it, everything looked fine. Then I went to add chapters to the movie - about 12 chapters. When I exit the Chapter Editing Dialog Box, it returns me to MyDVD, and I can see in the Project View section that multiple chapter menus were created. When I then try to save it immediately or preview it, the application hangs - Windows says it is not responding. I let it sit there for an hour, and still no response. Help! Any suggestions?
