lost some transition in emc 9 vista


timj

Question

Thanks for some previous help (got error message 'trial version has expired'). Now I notice that when I went to edit a previously saved slide show (done in XP), some of my transitions were no longer available, specfically, "Page Turns", "3=D". and " Distort". Has anyone else had this problem, and what is the solution?

Glad you got the problem solved. But, did running the graphics test result in the Hardware button being checked? The reason I ask is that if the graphics test results in software, you can force the hardware selection by manually clicking the hardware button, but that will likely result in errors, lockups, etc. during the rendering process. Although, your graphics card should certainly be capable of handling hardware rendering. Just asking to make sure you don't get into additional problems.

After I read your reply I went back into the setup and found that 'software' was selected again. I did the graphics test and it did indeed want to put me in 'software' mode. I checked the hardware button again. I have done a couple of dvd's and had no lockups at all.....so far....

 

By the way, my system is an HP Media center 7680n, with Intel duo core's running at 2.13Ghz. With my updated video card (7600GT), I certainly hope I don't run into these problems again.

You probably will, running Vista. Hopefully, the Roxio patch will be out soon, so it fixes that problem, but I would bet that you will find more problems, with other software, while running Vista.

Hi, timj

 

Run the graphics test in Videowave9; click Tools>Options and then click the Graphics Test button at the top of the window. After it has completed, either the Hardware or the Software radio button will be highlighted. If hardware, then all those transitions should be available. If software is selected, that means that your graphics card may not be sufficient to run all the features of EMC9 and those transitions you mentioned are some of the casualties. They will not be available in software mode.

 

Post back with the results of the graphics test and list you computer specs including the type of graphics card you have. Also, make sure you have installed the latest drivers for the graphics card.

That solved the problem! This is the best message board I have ever participated in. Members care and respond quickly. For some reason, the graphics was set to 'software' intead of 'hardware'. I just updated to a Nvidia 7600 GT and did install the latest drivers from Nvidia (although 'beta', I think). I knew it couldn't be the graphics card, but was surprised to find it in a 'software' mode. Thanks again
