Export Video File Freezes While Rendering



When I bring an avi file into video wave to edit it and try to export the video file out it always freezes on the same frame while rendering. It doesn't matter what type of video file I try to export. I have tried different videos and each one freezes approximately 5 minutes into the rendering. If I select the author video option, I get a buffering error about 2 minutes into the rendering. I have windows 10 64bit. Also, if I try to burn a DVD it burns to 99% then quits and nothing has burned on the DVD. I submitted a case but have been waiting 2 weeks for an answer. I just bought NXT4 since my old Roxio Creator wouldn't recognize my capture device after upgrading to Windows 10. The capture works good to capture old hi8 video tapes. I just can't do anything with the captured avi file. I want to compress it to an Mpg4 and also burn to a DVD for viewing in a DVD player after editing the video.

I have no windows sample files, I think that windows 10 doesn't have them. Besides, it is an avi file I am trying to make a DVD with. I captured the file with a Sony GV-D200 DVD recorder for transferring Hi8 tapes to computer. I also have captured some with my video camera through a Dazzle DVC 100 device. As mentioned before, that is why I upgraded to NXT4, my old Roxio wouldn't recognize the dazzle after I upgraded to windows 10. I opened the captured video into video wave did a few trimmings, added a title and tried to export to a DVD video file, and also tried to author the video getting the errors mention above. I then installed an old Corel Video Studio and edited the same file by trimming and adding a title, then was able to export and create a DVD file from there. I used that mpg2 file to try to burn a DVD in Roxio, but that is where the MyDVD freezes at 99% burn. The problem can't be just the one file because I have captured several avi files and they all do the same thing. If I bring in a short mp4 file, and I did find a small avi file taken with a digital camera, they export ok. My captured files are from one hi8 tape which is about 2 hours. I have, in the past, with windows 7 and Roxio Creator 2010 been able to do what I am attempting to do now. I have also found another problem that I don't know if it is related. I now use a Sony video camera that records AVCHD files. It is memory stick only and in the past I have been able to put an 8 GB memory card in the computer and use the Archive AVCHD files onto DVD. It would multi span 2 disks and burn just fine. Now, however, I get an error on the first disk saying that there is not enough free storage. I can burn a 4GB memory stick onto 1 DVD without any problems. This all tells me that that somehow Roxio isn't using my memory correctly to render which I don't really understand. Oh, and about the mpg4, I want a smaller file to keep on my computer for viewing on my TV wirelessly via my network. So I want to have the DVD for a DVD player (to share with some family that need this format) and mp4 to store the video file on a hard drive to watch. I can however bring the avi file into handbrake and convert to mpg4. I can figure a lot of work arounds, just would like to be able to make it a simpler process and use Roxio as intended especially since I put out the money for the upgrade.


Let's see, more specs on my computer:


Windows 10 Home 64 bit

System Type x64-based PC
Processor Intel® Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3301 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB
Total Physical Memory 7.91 GB
Available Physical Memory 3.78 GB
Total Virtual Memory 15.9 GB
Available Virtual Memory 9.98 GB
Is that enough or do you need more?

A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at the best quality setting. What settings are you using to make the video?


As regards the mp4 file you created. I would not use that file to create the mpg file for the DVD. You would be going through two rendering process: from the avi to mp4 and then from the mp4 to mpg. With each render you lose quality.


Memory has nothing to do with rendering except that it may effect the speed of the render.


You mention abuffering error in your first post. Exactly what is the message. Buffering error usually mean that the system is unable to handle the video stream because it cannot read it fast enough or cannot output fast enough.


Where are you storing the rendered video? How much free space on that drive? Have you defragged the drive?
