Recommended Posts

In NXT 8 the following are missing Text effects/Video effects/transisions----- the only thing running is transition themes. NXT8 is updated tp SP2. Will a repair cure this if so how do I run a repair. Thank you in advance. All the above have worked in the past. Also it has started to crash

In Videowave the Add Content panel should look like this:


Are the buttons actually missing, greyed-out, or not operating for you?  (Probably not too important, but it might indicate how broken it is).


I've not seen this fault reported before - NXT 8 is perhaps too new.   A repair shouldn't hurt it, and might well fix it.    You should turn off your anti-virus measures before starting the repair, along with any other programs that don't need to be running.

To run a Repair, go to your Control Panel, Programs and Features, and locate Roxio Creator NXT 8 or NXT Pro 8 (whichever you have).   Click on it and on the "Organise" line at the top of the list of programs an "Uninstall/change" button should appear.


Click that, and the Roxio setup wizard should run.  Click Next


Select Repair, and follow the prompts.   After everything has finished and the hue and cry has died down you'll probably have to restart the machine.   Remember to restart your anti-virus again, too.  A good thing about Repair is that it doesn't cost you an "install" from your install counter at Roxio HQ.

Best regards, Brendon

  • Brendon changed the title to no effects available in Videowave

Thanks Johnnie,

So something broke several parts of Videowave, but we don't know what it was that did this.  

HOWEVER a Repair using the method outlined has restored the program and fixed the problem.   We'll take the win!  :)

Go well, and stay safe.
