Blank panels during encoding


Sherry D.

Question

I have tried to burn the same slideshow numerous time, but fall short of actually burning it to the DVD because during the encoding process I have photos that come up black. The photos are fine if I burn from an outputted video format, but I'm trying to experiment burning my projects at a slow speed hoping to rid the jerks and hiccups in my photos before and after certain transitions. Burning it from a video file doesn't help so I need to experiment by burning right from Video Wave, however there's not point if all of my photos won't burn-this is a bigger issue than the jerking movement before and after certain transitions.

 

I had help a couple of weeks ago with trying to burn my projects from an iso file but I'm still not sure how to do this. If the person who wrote this can write back and go into more detail I would really appreciate it.

 

"Try this next time. when you go to burn, select create image file (iso) and deselect the other options. Name and put the location on your hard drive where you want the iso created.After it encodes, open Disc Copier and on the left side of the screen, navigate to the iso file. You can preview it there."

 

Where do I find "select image file (iso)?

 

Thank you!

I really appreciate all of your help today. I love Roxio and want to learn everything I can to maximize the software and to make my slideshows for me and my customers as perfect as they can be. Probably the only thing that I'm still not able to figure out is how to be able to use certain 3d transitions without the little jerk in the photo before and after. Not even the iso file and burning at a slow speed fixes it. I just wish I could make it go away!

 

Thanks. I've decided after your last reply that I'm not stressing myself out anymore to try to fix a problem that's impossible for me to fix. I'll just work with the transitions that don't cause the problem. I'll be so, so, so, excited when Roxio does fix the problem though because I love the fancy transitions! One last question, regarding the patch, will we know when Roxio completes a patch such as this or if it's even in the works to get our hopes up?

I am sure Roxio will be working on getting the little glitches out of their product. When would just be a guess on my part.

 

Let me ask Sherry......did you register your EMC9? You can sign up for emails as to updates and news if you like. Then when a patch does come out, you will be notified via email.

 

Oh, and I too like the "fancy transitions".

 

I don't know what your computer specs are or how savy you are when it comes to these things, but playing with different video drivers for your card, IF it is a relatively good card, just might help with some of the transitions. I have an ATI X1900 Crossfire 512 MB card, and I only have a problem with ONE or TWO of the transitions out of all of them. You may not want to mess with it and just wait for a patch that addresses the issue itself.

 

Good luck and have fun creating!

You have to use the dropdown box next to the Source button. You select Browse for Disc Image.....

Thank you for your response. I'm still not sure how that helps me figure out how to select an iso image file. My advice from someone was to save my file as an iso file, then burn my DVD at the slowest setting to rid the jerks and hiccups before and after my transitions, but I can't for the life of me figure out the iso aspect of the solution. I'm sure it's simple, but until I figure it out it's a moot point as to how simple it is. Anymore help would be kindly appreciated. thanks!

In MyDVD, after pressing the Burn icon, a dialog box shown in the image attached to the post below pops up. Select to create an image file (ISO) and determine the folder you want to save the image file.

Great. Now I know how to save to an iso file. Thanks for the picture. It helps being a visual learner especially. Can you tell me the significance of saving to an iso file. What purpose does it accomplish. Also, I tried to get into MY DVD and burn my saved iso file, but the file does not show up. Can you not burn an iso file from MY DVD?

Among others, you can use the ISO file to burn multiple copies of DVD.

 

No, you do not burn ISO file using MyDVD. For burning to DVD, you use the Disc Copier program. See post #2 above.

Burning to an .ISO file, or Folder set, works better for most than burning directily to disc. When you burn to an .ISO file, your computer is only doing one thing at a time. That is, burning to your hard drive as an image file of your project.

 

When you burn directly to a DVD, from MyDVD, your computer both encodes and burns to the disc. Any little hiccup in the process can cause a problem. This can happen if your computer is on the low end of the requirements for the software.

 

You can't burn the .ISO file to a disc from MyDVD. You have to use Disc Copier or Creator Classic to do that.

That is a known problem when using any transition, except dissolves. Hopefully, Roxio will address the problem in the upcoming patch.
