I have looked under Transistion Themes. I cannot find it.

 

In VideoWave, on the left side, click on Apply Transition Theme, and you should see the following:

If you don't see that, your video card may need updated drivers, or it doesn't handle all of DirectX that the software requires.

 

Did you install the Content disk?

There is a transition 'theme' called random and PotLuck, but it is only available if your video card can support hardware rendering. Poptluck chooses from all transition including the 3D ones.

 

Unfortunately, there isn't a random choice for those with software rendering.

If your motherboard has an AGP slot, you will want an AGP video card with at least 128MB of memory, but 256MB is preferable.

 

You should be able to pick up a decent one for $75-$100.

 

..... and if you have a PCIe slot, you can look at these ATI cards or these eVGA (nVidia) cards. The site is only one of many but gave the best display of the various cards (best search function). Both ATI and nVidia are major players and should have Vista drivers but double check on their web sites. (Note the driver page for ATI was not running at the time I tried.)

Yes I have installed the Content disk?

 

I do not show the same choices that you have displayed above.

I did receive an error when loading the software I am trying to use snag it to display the error but I can't get it to work. Sorry.

It says Drive incompatability error for Sonic Solutions DLA. Could that be the problem?

Wouldn't think so. Run the graphics test. If the 'dot' stays on software, then your video card doesn't support 3D functions of DirectX.

 

However, we have seen some better video card default to software UNDER VISTA when they shouldn't. What video card do you have and are you using Vista?

I ran the Graphics test and it stayed on Software

I am new to Vista so I am trying to locate my video card.

Same place as it was in XP. Right mouse button click on the desktop and choose Properties. Then click on the SETTINGS tab. Should have something like:

Plug n Play monitor on NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS

 

(at least Vista worked liked that when I tried out the beta LOL)

Does this help or is this everything but what you are looking for?

Yes, unfortunately, video chipsets that are integrated onto the motherboard usually do not fully support DirectX 3D commands needed in Videowave/MyDVD so they will always default to 'software' render only. They also use part of your system memory - in your case, 64MB is being used.

 

To get 'random' transitions, you will need to upgrade your video card. Sounds like you have a newer computer so most likely you will have a PCI Express slot not used. Check the computer manufacturer's website or the manual to be sure. There are plenty reasonably prices ($50-80) cards that will work well with EMC 9.

You sure are, and hopefully, you won't have that problem once you upgrade your card.

 

BTW, to get rid of that DLA error, uninstall Drag to Disc through Add/Remove Programs. It is a separate entry.

what am I looking for when i purchase a new card
