Transitions between Pictures


kacrussell

Question

There seems to be a running problem with transitions in Video Wave 9, and I have one to add to the mix. I can get transitions to run fine when I add them to the begining or the end of a video clip but when I try to add a transition to a picture the whole program just shuts down. No error messages or anything. I took the advice of earlier thread and updated all drivers and DirectX, but I am still having the problem. Any solutions?

No, this is a problem that has been around since V8 beta and just hasn't been fixed yet. Fortunately, it doesn't show up with all video cards.

Frank,

I can certainly backup Gary's statement. I have been faced with the jerking on the 3D transitions from when I first purchased EMC 8. My onboard video card and my current NVidia have the jerking, where as the ATI Radeo X550 card was fine. Wish someone from Roxio would find a way to fix it. Very frustrating...

 

Gary, If I end up getting an ATI card that is compatible with my motherboard, and the jerking is gone, I will surely post a message about it and let you know. I have been experimenting with another program called 'Virtual DJ' and the scenario is the same. The ATI Radeon X550 worked better than the NVidia GeForce 7300GS. It has a setting for 'Hardware Acceleration'. With the NVidia card I had to uncheck it or the videos would lockup and then their were transitions that could be used when changing from one video to another. With the ATI card I could check the Hardware Acceleration and use the transitions, with the NVidia I could not. I really do wish the NVidia card was working for me and I am truly disappointed.

 

Thanks again for trying to help me

I'm not happy with this program either. The transition problem is extremely frustrating. As with so many of you, the system shuts down without any warning..... Roxio customer service keeps giving canned replies, because they can't admit the program doesn't work properly. In any case, I ended up using the cut and paste command. Place the transition somewhere where the program doesn't immediately shut down, and then cut and past the transition to the box where you want the transition to occur.

 

Yes. My wife thought I was a flipping idiot to spend so much time triing to get this program to work for such a simple project.

I don;t have any suggestions on the "jerk" that you are experiencing when you use the 3D transitions. It happens to some (me includedd), but no one has come up with a solution or cause yet. It does seem to be more isolated to Nvidia cards tho.

 

For the crashing, are you opening the Roxio home app first when starting MyDVD or Videowave. Some have reported if they open them for Start -> Programs -> .... instead that they don't have issues like that.

Mike - did you actually read this thread before posting?

 

If you had, you would have seen that the guy who started it found that the problem was down to the video drivers - NOT the program itself.

 

Did you try to find updated drivers (from nVidia or ATI) and did you install the latest DirectX 9.0c from MS?

Make sure you are running in software render mode (VideoWave (top menu) Tools> Options) put the dot next to software. The program may not work properly with that chipset but it should work.

 

Are you running Vista?

 

I'm running XP media center and it does the same thing when I'm in software render mode also.

Hi Larry,

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried opening the MY DVD 9 from my Start menu rather than use the Roxio Welcome screen. It WORKED! I changed about 25 transitions in the Video Wave and it never locked up on me. Also too, and I did not realize it at first until just now. When I access the MY DVD 9 from the Welcome screen the picture in the middle that says My Menu was RED. The scenery was there but it was red. When I open the MY DVD 9 from the Start menu, it looks the way it should like. That's the good news!

 

Now the bad: Went back in EMC 8 and the Video Wave 8. Now the 3D transitions are JERKING again. When I was using the onboard video, they jerked. When I using the ATI Diamond X550 they DIDN'T jerk. Now with the Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS, they are jerking again. I'm not happy now! Using Video Wave 8 was my saving grace, but I can't use the ATI card because it is not compatible with my motherboard. The Nvidia is but I can't stand that jerking and now it happens in both 8 and 9!!

 

I had the Nvidia card set for 'Quality' and let the '3D Application decide'. I changed it to custom and let it now be 'Balanced'. That made no difference. Any suggestions on settings for the Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS?

 

Least you solved my locking up problem....

Thanks

Or perhaps another video card from a different manufacturer that also uses the ATI chipset? Does ATI manufacturer their own any more since AMD took over? Who makes you nVidia board? Just curious.

 

-------

Before you do anything, you may want to try different drivers. I just found this site claiming to have the newest drivers. Check it out here.

Gary,

My Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS box says it came from EVGA. www.evga.com

That is where I went to get the latest driver. Did you try the driver from that site you mentioned? Do you have 'jerking' when you use the 3D transitions?

 

When I first got the ATI Radeon X550 PCIE card, the monitor was only blank when first booting up. One restart and it was fine and ran great. I used it with Roxio and Pinnacle and as long as I did not turn off the computer it was fine. This was since December. Then just in the last month it got worse. I had to do 4 to 5 restarts before I got video. Just two weeks ago, the only solution was what I described earlier. So Diamond Multimedia Tech Support, at first sent me a new card same model. I had the same problem. They kept saying the card worked fine for them. I contacted ASUS. Their tech walked me through updating my BIOS and settings as well. I still had the same problem. Went back to Daimond MM. Now they asked what model my motherboard was. They told me that they have been in touch with ASUS and are in the process of testiung video cards on the same model motherboard I have - Now I wait, been a week already...

 

To be honest, if they find a card that works for me, I may send the Nvidia back. If it wasn't for the compatibilty problem, I would still be using the X550 and never have gotten the Nvidia.

 

So, please let me know if a) you get 'jerks' with the 3D transitions B) if downloading the driver from that Guru site is a good idea c) any changes I can make in settings to make the jerking stop.

 

Thanks again

Jim

[/size][/b] I also was having transition problems using EMC9.0! EMC7.5 has better & colorful transitions, so i installed both. The main issues that i have encountered were: IE -6.0 works better than IE-7.0 because it may cause the program to shut down.......antivirus software can affect operations in videowave......drag to disk may affect also. I have attempted to install the latest trial version of EMC 9.0 deluxe but i got an error message about incompatibility so i scrapped that idea. Version 7.5 is the best version for me to date!! 8.0 was junk.....9.0 lost the color transitions in videowave....This new version has stuff on it you'll never even use.

I'm afraid there is no answer other than to purchase and try it out unless the motherboard manufacturer has any suggestions.

I would post in the General Forum if you want some suggestions for video cards.

Well, I posted my message under 'General Discussion'. Got a message from Bruce that double posting was a no-no and now my posting is locked.

 

Bruce, it was not my intention to double post. I had mistakenly put my message in the wrong place and it was moved over to this topic. I had tried to post under 'Tips/Tricks' and realized after the fact that I could not do it. This topic here involved the Transitions. I was looking for help in getting the right video card and felt that search warranted a new topic. Sorry for the confusion and please don't think ill of me :)

 

SO, now I am forced I guess to post here. I called ASUS again, ran down the whole situation from beginning to my current status. They recommended to me a video card made by them. It is an EN 7600 and it is on it's way. I anxiously await it's delivery. All my computer guy said to me was 'It's one heck of an upgrade'

 

You can understand my anticipation... I'll let you all know... Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Definitely will be interested in your results. Appears that card has the nVidia 7600. Looking at their website, they also have ATI based video cards. Check those out here

 

Some of these newer video chipsets run hot and require huge heat sinks. Most of them take up two slots in the computer. Asus seems to have innovative cooling systems on a few of the boards.

Glad to hear the Start -> idea helped with the crashing at least. Sorry I don't have any more suggestions on the jerking thing. I get it too even tho my card is different than yours, it is an Nvidia. I've only seen it reported by those who have an NVidia card, but even then, some with the same cards say it doesn't happen for them. If I ever figure anything out with it I'll be sure to post something.

Is this a retail machine or was it built? Since you already KNOW there was a hardware compatibility with the Diamond card and your motherboard, there is no way we could know which other cards may also have a problem. Also we aren't really sure if the jerking problem is software or hardware. It does seem to happen only on nVidia video cards.

 

I would suggest looking for ATI cards made by other companies. I was thinking about the ATI X1900 All in Wonder, but found out that they used the Theatre 200 video decoder inistead of their newer 600. I'm holding out until they do.

Hey Gary,

No this is not a retail machine. I have a computer guy who built it for me. The computer was 1 year old in January. I did a fresh install of Windows XP Pro SP2 on his suggestion to clean it out. I do lots of work with videos, slides, and music and he felt a fresh install on a yearly basis was a good idea.

 

Listen, I meant for my posting to be in a new topic because I was looking for responses from the Roxio community in the hopes of finding a video card that is going to do what I need it to do. I believe I posted it in the wrong because it got moved here.

 

I was willing to try and live with the 'jerking' and keep the Nvidia card, but I went and encoded one of my projects into an .iso file and then burned it onto a disc. It was horrible! Besides the 'jerking' the actual 3D transitions looked so sloppy/jagged etc... That is what convinced me the Nvidia card was going back.

 

I even put in a support ticket at EVGA. The tech suggested that I make sure all remnants of the ATI and Nvidia were gone, reboot in safe mode and then install the latest driver for the Nvidia card. I had uninstalled the ATI drivers before I installed the Nvidia card but there was an ATI folder on my C Drive. So I did what he said and started over. It made no difference whatsoever and this convinced me even more that no matter what I did with the settings, the Nvidia card was not gonna do it for me.

 

Your thoughts on an ATI card by a different manufacturer sounds worth pursuing, but like you said how am I supposed to know what is going to be compatible with my motherboard. I don't have an answer for that.

 

I was hoping that I would get a few different suggestions on video cards to try. I poted a ticket to Roxio support in the hopes that they recommend a good card for me.

 

Can you suggest what category/topic I should post my message in so that I get some good responses from the Roxio community? Thanks again for your time and trying to help!

If you don't use any of the 3D transitions, some users have posted that using software render solved that jerking problem.

Gary,

The 3D Transitions are what I want to be able to use. Back when I was using just the onboard video on my motherboard, this was one of my complaints with Roxio 8. I have read all about the using the 'Software' rendering and not using the 3D transitions. It's like dangling a carrot in front of a horse...

 

Now 2 video cards later, buying EMC 9, and everything else I mentioned earlier, I am right back to where I started. I was so happy when my computer guy got me the Nvidia GeForce 7300GS. I thought I was going to be golden and I'm not.

 

I'm wishing I did not have a compatibility problem with the ATI Diamond X550. There was no jerking in either Video Wave 8 or 9. My problem in 9 was the locking up, the transitions did not jerk.

 

If I had known to acess MY DVD 9 from the Start menu, I might have been OK with the ATI card.

Of course I would be rebooting, and pulling it out and putting it back for it to work in the first place.... :0

I am waiting to here from Diamond MM. They have been in contact with ASUS to try to figure what can be done about the compatibilty problem I had. Maybe a different ATI Diamond video card, or something....

 

So now what?

1) I can't access MY DVD from the Welcome screen or it will lock up at some point

2) I can't use the 3D Transitions in my projects

 

I have set the NVidia to High Performance, and the Anti ones are set for the Application to control and it did not make any difference. Does anyone know if Roxio has any plans in the works to resolve these problems? From reading the forums, I know I am not alone. I have spent money on Roxio EMC 8, Roxio EMC 9, an ATI Diamond X550 video card, and now just recently the NVidia GeForce 7300GS.

 

Still frustrated....

You are correct on 2 accounts and dead wrong on the third. EMC 7.5 is great, except for the 2 hour limitation on .ISO files.

 

EMC 8 was/is junk.

 

EMC 9 didn't lose anythig in the transitions. It added a ton more than the other 2 combined. :)

Just a shot in the dark Gary, but does changing the duration of the transitions make any difference with the "jerk" the thread has be talking about ?? Some time ago and on a completely different thread, I had problems getting the duration of the transitions to work correctly. Once that problem was solved, the transitions seemed to move better. And I was using the "Random" transitions and changed some of them to 3-D, so I had a mix.

 

Frank...

I am glad the card works, even if the jerks are still there. I think it has to be a combination of NVidia drivers and the software, but I would put more money on it being an NVidia driver problem.

Hello Gentleman,

I'm back! I have more updated news for you and anyone else who hates the jerking of the 3D Transitions. Yeah, I said I would live with it. Well, I lied:). Back went the ASUS EN 7600 card that was powered by a NVidia 7600 GS. I had it replaced with a... drum roll please... an ASUS EAX1650 PRO which is powered by an ATI Radeon X1650 Pro GPU. This was the right thing to do! No JERKING!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

 

So Bruce, you hit the nail on the head. You said it was the Nvidia drivers and you were right!

 

For the folks playing at home....

If you want the 3D Transitions to work great, use video cards made by ATI Radeon or are powered that way.

If Roxio and/or Nvidia won't do anything about it, then you have no other choice. I hope you listen to me, read my postings, and avoid what I went through. I have suffered through this video card nightmare to get to this moment. I am sharing with everyone else to spare you from it!

Bruce,

I never had 7, EMC 8 was my first, and then I got EMC 9. Jury is still out on EMC 9.

I see you have a EVGA GeForce 7900GT X16 PCIe Video Card - 256MB.

 

SO, couple questions:

1) Can you access MY DVD 9 from the Welcome screen, go into Video Wave 9 and not have it lock up on you after you start adding, or changing transitions?

2) If you go into Video Wave 9, do your 3D Transitions 'jerk'?

3) Also if I go to MY DVD 9 from the Welcome screen, the center picture that says "My Menu" that you see when you first get there is totally RED. I talking about the default scenery menu. If I access MY DVD 9 from my Start menu (per Larry's tip) the scenery is fine and the Video Wave does not lock up on me at all.

 

I'm asking because I am looking for any insight in resolving this. My device manager says my video card is NVidia GeForce 7300 GS, the box says EVGA e-GeForce 7300 GS PCI-E 256 MB DDR 2. With this card EMC 9 works the same way it worked with my onboard video card which was/is an Intel Chipset 82945G. Everything I mentioned above happens the same way with BOTH cards.

 

I'm thinking I have something set wrong or this card ain't what it's cracked up to be.

I've tried all the image settings: 'High Performance', 'Performance', 'High Quality' 'Quality'

My Antialiasing and Anisotropic settings are 'Application Controlled'

Everything else is set at the default settings

 

If you read my earlier postings I also have an ATI Radeon X550. I had no 'jerking' with the 3D transitions and the 'My Menu' screen in MY DVD was not RED. Video Wave still locked up on me though. I never got the chance to try Larry's tip with it because I have a compatibility issue with that card and my motherboard. I removed it, uninstalled the software, and the got the EVGA Nvidia card.

 

You say EMC 9 is great for you, and we both have video cards from the same manufacturer. Maybe I can send mine back and get the same one as you. Before I do that I would like to know exactly how your card is working. I would appreciate it if you could telll me what happens to you with MY DVD and Video Wave 9.

 

Thanks

Please explain (2 hr limitation on .iso files)? Does this mean the video can't be over 2 hrs long?

I'm not understanding this????? The only use i see for .iso in the first place is to have a quick means on your hardrive to do multiple copies,am i correct? And i haven't found anything on custom colorizations using 9.0?

7.5 is still the best since adaptec had the 4.0 version years ago! All others are junk! (well depending on what your using it for).

Make sure you are running in software render mode (VideoWave (top menu) Tools> Options) put the dot next to software. The program may not work properly with that chipset but it should work.

Hello,

I have posted in this forum before because I have had trouble from the very beginning using Transitions in Video Wave 8 and then in Video Wave 9. A little history for you. I used to use the onboard video card which was an Intel Chipset on the motherboard. I was told here in the forums that it may have been my problem. I upgraded from EMC 8 to EMC 9 in the hopes that things might be better. They weren't.

 

SO I got a new video card - an ATI Diamond X550 PCIE. Well, things in Video Wave 8 were now GREAT.

All the transitions worked and no lockups or shutdowns at all.

 

However Video Wave 9 still was horrible.

Adding transtions in between pictures would cause it to lock up and shutdown.

 

On the downside, the above mentioned video card was causing compatibility problems with my motherboard. I would get a blank screen on startup and would have to reboot to get video. There were times where I would have to pull it out and reconnect to the onboard video. Boot up, shutdown, then put the card in, boot up again to a blank screen, restart and then finally would have video! YIKES! AWFUL....

 

SO I got an even better video card - a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS. Installed it. Works great.

Factor in that I did a complete fresh install of Windows XP Pro SP2 with the new card.

 

Of course right away I had to see what would happen in Video Wave 9. Guess what!?! Same problem with the transitions. Rest of EMC 9 works great. ALL of EMC 8 STILL WORKS GREAT, even the transitions!!!!

 

Bottom line: 2 different video cards - same transition problem in Video Wave 9, but Video Wave 8 works great and no transition problem at all! (Video Wave 8 was bad with the onboard card Intel Chipset)

 

Now I am being asked to shell out more money for a 9 Suite upgrade. How about making an EMC 10 and fix a problem that seems to happen to several people using a variety of different computers, hardware, software and configurations.

 

After reading things in this forum, it appears that transition problems occur frequently and people are being told to use the 'Software' and not 'Hardware'. Doing that you lose access to the 3D transitions which are the attraction (to me anyway) to wanting to use the program in the first place.

 

I do other video work with no problem in other programs, so I believe my computer is up to the task.

I sure would like some good old fashion help here and relief of my frustration with this problem.

As you can see from above I am doing my part to rule out a problem with my computer.

 

I am using JPEGS that are 890 x 690 and 581kb in size and I am trying to add transitions in between them. This is no major resource hogging project and I don't feel that I should be having all this trouble.

 

With the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS, Video Wave 8 works wonderfully, why won't Video Wave 9?

 

Sorry for the ranting, but I get frustrated when I spend my hard earned money and get problems.
