Capturing & then editing in Videowave.

Question

Recommended Posts

Had the same problem (re scenes), perused this forum, and got this far. Thanks.

 

However I am now trying to drag my scenes to the time line, and VideoWave just hangs.

Even with one small scene that is no more than one minute.

 

I waited to use EMC 9 until I got a brand new clean machine (HP Media Centre with XP) so that I would

NOT have problems, but it has been terribly frustrating thus far.

New clean HP Media Center with XP doesn't really tell us a lot. Do you have a built in video chip or do you have a video card? Chips can be a problem. I know that the computer is new to you but perhaps that mb has been around for awhile. Update the video drivers for that card/chip and try encoding in software mode Open VideoWave and go to the top menu, Tools>Options> put the dot next to software.

yes, that is how it has always worked. In the older versions, it just didn't seem that way because of how Media Manager presented to you. Media Manager just keeps a database of what files you have and their 'scenes'. The scenes are NOT separate files on the hard. Media Import can capture to separate files when using smartscan, but personally I don't use it.

Did you try what I suggested above? YOU WILL SEE THE SCENES. I'm not my computer with Videowave/MyDVD so I can't post a screenshot.

 

Sounds like you got used to building your projects in DVD Builder. FOR EDITING, you should be using Videowave.

 

Launch MyDVD 9

Click add movie/image

Media Selector pops up

In the upper left corner, click the BLUE BOOK icon.

That should show you the scenes in a file.

Hello,

I have read the article about capturing with great interest. I have just started using EMC 9 and when I try to drag pictures into the storyline from the media selector I can only manage to do 6 or 7 pictures and suddenly message flashes up Videowave has encountered a problem and had to close. Nothing is saved and I have to start again. So far have managed 8 before the problem occurs.

 

Any ideas

Since placing the message I have updated my quick time player for the videos and now everything is OK. Videowave works well and I have burnt 2 separate DVDs.

Souds like you're still using the wrong Media Selector. YOU MUST choose the one in teh second box!!

Gary,

 

Can you help me. It sounds like I might be having similar problems. Your pictures helped me but I still can't get the scenes. This is what I'm doing (or not doing)

 

Open VideoWave9 with a new production

Click "Show Media Selector"

This open with "My Albums" on the blue line. The only file in there is "Sample Media"

If I click on the green coloured left arrow I get "All Videos" and in the list is the avi file I captured yesterday.

It now seems I can either drag and drop the whole file into the storyline or right click the file and select "Scene Detection". I can then see all the scenes but then can;t drag and drop them.

 

I also noticed on your pictures somehow you get the name of the avi file on the blue line. How is that done?

 

Be gentle this is my first time using EMC9 :)

I think I may have sorted it myself. Isn't that just the case as soon as you ask a question. I've now spotted there's a down arrow in the thumbnail and if you click on that rather than the main part of the picture then you'll get the scene selection. :)

Actually,, that hasn't really changed. YOu still have to use Media Manager to access the scenes. Just that Media Manager has changed. DO NOT use add movie. Go to the next tool box and click Show Media Manager. Use this to navigate to the file and you will see the scenes. You can drag n drop from this window.

 

If you use a resolution HIGHER than 1024x768, you can dock the media manager to the right and then just drag the scenes you want to the timeline.

Many thanks. Sorry for being dense but if I go to media manager I get one file. What am I doing wrong?
