Question

Looking for a recommendation of which free audio file extension converter is safe to download and install and works well. Have viewed a few on the web, but not certain which to go with. I have a number of m4a music files which can't be added to a slide show created in VideoWave.

 

Thanks for any recommendation.

Why can't you add the m4a files? Do you get any error message?

 

I don't have C2011 but I know that later versions of Roxio Creator accept m4a files. Of course if the were bought from iTunes they might have some sort of copy protection added.

 

Have you tried using VLC to convert the m4a to a wav or mp3 format?

I determined that it was possible to convert music files in Win Media Player. Converted the m4a files to WMA because that has worked in the past. Now I can't add any music files to the slide

production. Will continue working on a solution. Never had this happen before.

Continue to experience a problem with adding background audio. First, clicking on Add Background Audio to open up the window where either Smart Sound or Media Selector option is shown, choosing Media

Selector to open the music window, and thereafter selecting an album and then music track, the music track cannot be added to the Music track in Timeline. However, if clicking on Show Media Selector

and then migrating to the music folder and then album and clicking on a music track. it's possible to add the music track to Timeline. I can add another music track to Timeline, but on the same line. However, a subsequent music track cannot be added to the FX1 track. It's evident that something is wrong with VideoWave, even though adding images to Storyline was successful. This has unfortunately occurred after removing Roxio Creator 2011 using Revo uninstaller. The purpose was one more time at getting VC&C to work without crashing. It was successful. VC&C now works without crashing.

Evidently, VideoWave has become corrupted. I guess it's another remove and reinstall. Yuck! Roxio Creator 2011 is one fussy program.

Here is the latest. Decided to boot up into Win XP and try VideoWave in this OS. The same problem occurs. What I did not mention previously is that this has all happened after having to replace

the video card. The previous Radeon HD 5670 failed. Had to purchase a new video card. It is Nvidia GT 610. Bought this card because it claimed to be compatible with both Win7 and Win XP, which is

desirable because of operating a dual boot OS with the aforementioned OSs. The other operations and programs all seem to function correctly, so there is no hint that the video card might be the

proble. Even so, I now suspect that maybe the video card is the culprit since VideoWave functioned previously without any of the current problems.

 

Here is one last item. With VideoWave open and after going to the existing slide project in Timeline, if Add Background Audio is clicked on, the Media Selector window opens to the music files, but then

VideoWave stops responding after selecting and dragging a music file to Timeline. Have to open Task Manager to stop VideoWave and return to the desktop window.

 

Very perplexing. Not certain what to do next. Not even certain if removing and reinstalling Creator 2011 is a solution.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't have sfx shown. Had to add it. Forgot all about this track. Curious how it disappeared. Would it have been deleted upon removing and reinstalling Creator 2011?

The SFX track is never shown when you launch Videowave, it was never deleted . To see it you always have to enable it by selecting the checkmark in show/hide tracks.

You can of course also use the Nar track when adding music - you have 3 audio tracks to which you can add audio clips.

Somewhat confused by your post that the SFX track is never shown when Videowave is launched. After having added the SFX track in Videowave last night and then "launching" Videowave this morning after booting up in Win 7, the SFX track was still there. So when you post that it never is shown when launching Videowave, do you mean it doesn't appear when Creator 2011 is initially installed on a computer, and then thereafter Videowave is "launched" for the very first time??? Here is another perplexing outcome. Creator 2011 was initially installed in the XP operating system a number of years ago. It has remained there since. A number of slide show productions with background audio were produced with Videowave and subsequently burned to DVD. It has not been used to create anything for at least the past year or so. However, after booting up in XP this morning and then opening Creator 2011 and then Videowave, there shown was the SFX track. Now for the perplexing part. The track wasn't there when Videowave was opened last night. It's not worth fretting over since the issue has been resolved.

 

There is one last question that has apparently not been answered. How did the SFX track mysteriously disappear? Videowave in the Win 7 operating system was used to create 6 slide show productions within the last year. All contained background audio, and to the best of my recollection I did not have to add the SFX track prior to creating the slide show productions.

 

In any event, a thank you to myguggi for pointing out that the SFX track had to be added. By the way, I had to figure out how to add the track because I don't recall ever having done this previosuly. For the present, all things seem to be a go in Videowave having successfully added several audio tracks to one of the 4 slide show productions under way.

Something or someone may have unchecked it?
