Using VideoWave with large files


Zoepup

Question

Been through some of the help topics and haven't really figured out an answer, so any help would be appreciated many times over.

 

my hardware

2Ghz dual core

2Gb ram

120gb hard drive

 

I want to take VideoWave create 2-3 hour movie onto a DVD.

I have two video clips (both are mp4. One is about 500mb and the other is 900mb)

I have about 30 slides I want to add as well.

When I "Add Photo/Video" (500mb file), it goes in fine.

When I try to add the 900mb file after the above file, the program stops responding. I guess it is trying to full load BOTH mp4's into memory?

 

What is the most efficient way to make a long video of these files? Should I split them up and add them as little bits and pieces?

 

Thanks so much!

Source size means nothing when it comes to video DVD, it is the time length of the video that is important. A standard 4.7GB DVD can hold 60 minutes of video at best quality. To get on more you have to reduce the quality. I would suggest you create 2 or 3 separate movies and put then on 32 or 3 DVDs. Since your mp4 files are very highly compressed they will have to be uncompressed when working on them in videowave, it might take a long time to do even if you have 2 GB of memory.

Can you load the larger mp4 file by itself? Perhaps there is some other problem with the file.

 

 

Thanks for the reply Walt. The first movie is 1 hr. THe second is 1.5 hours. I want to take the two (both from unprotected DVD's) and combine them with some misc sildes to create a 2 hour DVD presentation (obvisouly some editing). Is there a better way to do this from a source of DVD? Maybe I should not have gone to mp4 first.

 

Thanks!
