Should I expect any degradation in image quality with this process?

 

Scene detect won't degrade the image quality. It's basically an editing function. You can also break the video into scenes in the Timeline of VideoWave.

 

Now when the video is rendered into an mpeg2 file to put on a DVD, the file is compressed and you might see a slight degradation of quality. That's normal and occurs because you're taking around 13 Gb of AVI footage and compressing it into around 4.5 GB for a one hour DVD.

Thanks again for all the help.

While surfing another subject I discovered GGRUSSELL mentioned the scene detect function.

Since I do have the old project in .avi form I will open it and let the scene detector break it into scenes and then continue editing. That is assuming I can figure out how.

I have the scene detector running right now.

Here's my next question... Should I expect any degradation in image quality with this process?

Thanks guys.

I was affraid that would be the answer. I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed though. If I'd known I couldn't keep working with my unfinished productions with this new version, I might have opted for a different product. Some other video editing software programs have gotten better reviews.

How do you find EMC 8 as a video editing and DVD authoring program?

Have you tried reloading the old software if it is compatible with XP? Create an mpg or avi production and then you can import that into V8 for final processing. Sorry for the echo grandpabruce.

 

Watch out foe an apples and oranges comparison. Remember most of the other ones have just the video processing and their deluxe versions are the video processing and some add on programs for a higher price. I like the Roxio integration but I do not use a lot of the other functions such as D2D, and the back-up functions. I have other software for that. I find that the video processing is good and usually very stable. Other programs drove me to V 7 and I just got comfortable using it..

 

Most of the people who do a lot of video work have more than one program. I had Studio 9+ (I would not touch Studio 10 for awhile) and Ulead Power Director. They both had something unique to offer. I never bought the Sony program but that is also expected to be good. I don't like the Nero user interface but that is a personal preference. Other like it.

 

Thanks guys.
