Roxio ver 9, compile movies trim feature locks


rharry1

Question

Good afternoon

 

I just installed the NEW version 9 and found when using the compile feature and add moivies, the screen freezes up. I purchased the upgrade because, I was running into problems with ver.8. The older version wouldn't load the screen at all untiul, I would re-boot the system. Is there a fix for this? Thanks

If the kinds of replies that Mr. Hardin is giving to get a five-disc rating are like the one's he gives here, I would suggest he actually try to be helpful instead of running up his post totals...I have the same issue with a 30-minute DVD VOB file (home movie). VideoWave simply hangs after a few seconds in the TRIM function. There is no CPU activity, the program simply stops responding and must be killed. VideoWave needs to be fixed when dealing with VOBs. This problem does not seem to happen with MPEG2 files, though it makes no sense why that would be the case, since a VOB is simply a wrapper for an MPEG2 file, and VideoWave claims to work fine with VOBs. I have a 2.6GHz Core2Duo with 2GB of ram and a Nvidia 7600GS video card, with all latest drivers.

 

Let's see. Did you have problems with EMC 8 and upgrade to EMC 9, because you were having problems? If so, the problem more than likely lies in your computer, not the software, just a James said. :blink::blink::blink::blink::blink:

 

BTW, the OP is using the compile feature, not VideoWave.

You are lucky that you can get your laptop to run EMC 9. Laptop video chips don't usually support all of the features in DirectX 9, needed to run the software.

 

Since my above post, I've gotten the "Import" feature to work in the place of "compile" with no problems so far. Puts the extracted DVD clip onto my external hard drive as an MPG file for editing and tweaking.

I have a Compaq laptop purchased in November '06, and a virgin install of EMC9 and movie compiliation generates a "need to close error" and a note to Microsoft every time I try to copy a movie off a home-made DVD.

 

I get as far as the app trying to cache the video, then the error/message to MS, and that's it.

 

The DVD is from a camcorder so no copy protection.

 

Most of the other things with EMC9 are okay - but I have to say this is a buggier version than older ones I used on other computers!

Don't know if it will help or not, but after all I've done so far (turning stuff off, updating other stuff) I was told that there is a "long standing" issue with starting MyDVD from the EMC main program... with the solution being to start MyDVD directly, which I plan to do this evening after work to see if it fixes the problem

I have this same problem. I load a VOB movie, can trim a few seconds, and then the program freezes and must be killed. I have a Core2 Duo 2.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and all trhe latest drivers, etc. There is something really wrong with Video Wave if this problem is replicable by many different people (I have seen other references to this in other posts)...if anyonme can give a solution, I would appreciate it, as this issue makes the software almost worthless to me...
