How To Zap Commercials From Recordings, And A Way To Create Chapter Points

Question

Reprinted from Roxio digital media report:

If you have a set-top DVD recorder, a networked TiVo, a Media Center PC, or another PC-based DVR, you've probably got lots of your favorite shows recorded—with lots of commercials too! VideoWave, the video editor included in the Creator 9 suite, makes it simple to snip out unwanted bits and burn the results to DVD. Here's how:

 

First, import your media files into a VideoWave project, and add chapter markers on the timeline at the beginning and end of the commercial sections by clicking on the + button at the top left. Then click between the two markers to join them and delete the joined video using the multi-trim button (just to the right of the + button).

 

A side benefit of this procedure is that you will now have chapter markers at the beginning of each segment following a commercial, neatly dividing up your show into the usual 6 or 7 segments per hour. When you are finishing editing in VideoWave, you can switch right to MyDVD, and the markers will represent the beginning of chapters on your finished DVD—with no commercials in sight!

 

For EMC 10 or Creator 2009 owner who is reading this Tip -- additional information (posted 11/30/2007, updated 2/20/2009)

 

For those reading this post who would like to apply the tips above in Easy Media Creator 10 (EMC10) or Creator 2009, please note that the markers in Videowave no longer automatically generate chapter markers in MyDVD, as indicated in the last paragraph above for EMC9. Instead, you have to right click the title, select Edit Movie and go to Timeline view. To make the marker a chapter point, right click it and select Convert to Chapter marker. Do this for all the markers that you would like to be chapter points.
