saving in videowave

Question

the only file option when "save as" after working on a production in videowave is "DMSM" .

the problem is that I cannot "ADD VIDEO" of a DMSM file,or a DAT file to a new production?

I want to take several small saved productions and put them together into one production. But I get a message of" WARNING, one or more of the files you are trying to add cannot be edited, and have not been saved"

can this be done with creator nxt6. running windows10.

thanks.

A dmsm file and its associated dat file are not video files. The dmsm file is a text file which contains the instrutions on how to process your project including the source files used, transitions and effectsapplied, etc. It cannot be added to a project using the "add" option. The "Add" option is used to add already existing video files and/or image files.

To "save" a video file of your project (ie, render) you use the "Output" option on the main menu and then select "Export As"

Is there a version of Roxio that I can accomplish what I am after. I had a creator4 pro, I believe? that worked great, but under windows 7.

Doing an "export", which I have played with, and does work because I am able to save in different formats, is VERY time consuming. 

I would prefer to do my export when the project is completely finished, not a dozen times during the production stage.

Thanks

Why would you need to export a dozen times? You render each project once to the export file. In the final project you simple add each exported video and merge them into the final video.

It is not time consuming at all but is the preferred method especially for larger projects

Thanks for the info. I will just export each clip as I work on them.

Could you suggest what format you would use if I am exporting only to use "ADD VIDEO", at a later time in my production.

And maybe what format for my final video if using for a youtube video.

There are so many options and not really sure. I have used mpeg-2 in the past, but that was only a guess.

Thanks for the help!!!

The final format depends on the format of your original source files. There is not much point in creating a higher format than your source format since sometimes the quality is actually reduced.

I don't create videos for youTube so I can't help you there. You should check with youTube to see what formats are acceptable. In any case, yould render all your clips to the format you finally decide on
