Dew Drop In Videowave

Question

I created a production in Videowave using Creator 2011. "Somehow" I manged to have my first 5 slides appear in a "Dew Drop" into water. I really liked the effect. I upgraded to Creator NXT 2 and cannot find this particular effect. Is it available in NXT 2? Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Jim,

 

Thanks for responding. Attached is a JPEG of the "Dew Drop" in water. I really like this effect. Can't find it in Creator NXT 2.

Anyone know what this one is and if it comes in NXT or can be moved to it???

Haven't had Creator 2011 for a long time now but if I could guess---That particular screen is probably NOT transferrable to NXT 2.

It is a DVD menu style called "Droplet". It was there in Creator 2012. I check later to see if it is in NXT 2.

 

I used itr quite a bit, it is good for certain types of videos/menus.

The Droplet menu style is also in NXT 2.

Thanks to all that responded. WHERE in the "Effects Selector" is "droplet" found? I cannot find it. v/r Larry

 

As above, it is NOT an effect but is a MENU in MyDVD (Create DVD). Perhaps you mis-remember that it was an effect and not a menu item. You posted an image of the Menu !

I think Larry is trying to Stump the Chump here :lol:

(not too hard to do)

 

In his picture, he has VideoWave open, not MyDVD.

Of course VW has NO Provision for Preview, which is only found in MyDVD...

 

AND if you go to Edit in MyDVD, it still shows MyDVD in the Title bar and Preview is gone ;)

 

I see that there is something in the FX layer in his VW Project, wonder what that is?

 

But in MyDVD, Droplet is available as a Menu Style:

And when Preview (MyDVD) is run...

Jim,

 

I live in Overland Park, KS. I'm really not trying to stump anyone. I had a Videowave open with all of my slides posted for a draft project. The "Droplet" was loaded as an effect in my Videowave production. I had not made a DVD as yet. However, before I could produce a DVD I had to create a "video file." I took the screen shot (posted) from the Video file. I was having some difficulty loading my background audio in the Videowave prior to creating the Video file. I was clearly making a mess of things. So, I decided to upgrade to Creator NXT 2. In order to load NXT 2 I had to uninstall Creator 2011. So, I have no way of showing anyone the Droplet in my old Videowave.

Jim,

 

When I go to the page you've shown there are 6 selections under Menu Style. Droplet is not one of them. Is it possible you have the professional program?

Do you still have that C2011 dmsm project file? If yes could you attach to a post. You may have to change the dmsm extension to a txt extension in order to attach it. I would like to take a look at the project file (via an xml editor) to see where the "droplet" effect file is located in C2011.

myguggi,

 

Unfortunately, when I downloaded Creator NXT 2 I was directed to uninstall C2011. What I have left is a video file.

I don't think the .dmsm project file wouldn't have automatically been removed with the uninstall, unless it was in one of the installation folders. I usually keep mine with the files (video, still image) that I'm putting into my project. Does that help?

Did you also install the Contents file? This often contains many of the extra effects, menus, transitions, etc.

What is the "droplet" effect file?

Larry - hope you realize I was just kidding :lol:

 

My Ex-wife was from Overland Park, NO happy memories of that she wolf :wacko:

 

Dave is right about the dmsm file, they are data, thus never touched during an install/un-install ;)

 

Doesn't matter if you have Pro or Standard, the 6 choices show up only when you have not installed the Content!

 

Get your discs out, it should be combined on Disc 1. Put it in and run Repair when offered.

 

As you can see, all of us have the Droplet as part of the Menus but none of us have ever heard of it being part of VideoWave... I feel you are mistaken about that -_-

Jim Hardin,

 

Got the part about the she wolf - left mine in Oklahoma. Yes, I knew you were joking.

 

According to what I can make out of the download information on my computer, I did download Content. I tried to post an attachment of the dmsm file and the system would not allow "that type" of attachment. So, as "myguggi" suggested I saved the file as a txt file and still could not post it.

 

I've attached a screen shot showing the content checked on my download.

 

I can view the old "Production 1.dmsm" file with the droplet, but I swear to you I never got it as far as creating a video file.

 

Larry

If you only show six menu styles in My DVD you never installed the content!

Jim Hardin,

 

After much searching, I decided to uninstall the Creator NXT 2 software and return to my older software, Creator 2011. In this version of the software there is an option for a "New CineMagic Movie." Once you load your slides you are prompted to inject a "Menu Style" that literally loads on the Timeline. You can remove the corporate soundtrack that comes with the Menu Style. Apparently, I pursued that option and simply did not remember how I'd accomplished it! The droplet in this instance picks up the first 5 slides and projects them into the ovals created by the droplet of water hitting the pool. It's the exact effect I wanted.

 

I want to apologize to all concerned for the assistance they rendered. Your comments and suggestions kept me "on point" looking for an answer. I don't believe the "CineMagic" option exists in Creator NXT 2. Since I've uninstalled it from my computer, I can't look to review that option.

 

v/r

You open it from within Videowave (New CineMagic Movie) , it's the same as Edit Video - Automatically.

 

I'll boot into W-8.1 with NXT2 Pro and look.
