VideoWave 9.0 crashes when trying to open 7.5 production


DMCF

Question

Hello Forum Readers,

 

I've searched for a solution to this problem, but can't find it in the Forums or Google searching. I just installed EMC 9 (after uninstalling 7.5) and cannot open a 7.5 VideoWave production. The system crashes. I've read about all the conflict problems with IE7. Could that be the problem here? BTW, I can burn the 7.5 project to a DVD in 9.0 in MyDVD, but I cannot open it in VW 9.0 to edit. If this has been answered and I missed it, my apologies. Thank you. DMcF

You are correct. IE 7 is causing the problem with EMC 7.5. You would have to roll back to IE 6 to get your production to DVD Builder for burning.

 

If you used transitions or text in your production in EMC 7.5, I can't believe any of that came in properly in EMC 9. If you did an output as an .avi file, from VideoWave in EMC 7.5, you could open that .avi file in EMC 9 VideoWave, but you couldn't edit any of the text or transitions, but you could edit the movie, itself.

 

Hi grandpabruce,

 

The transitions and text transferred fine. The output was an .mpeg file and burned correctly, but I wanted tor replace several of the images. Your input is appreciated! Thanks.

OK - seeing you have it burnt to DVD, can you haul that back and try editing from a fresh file (ripped from the DVD)?

 

I don't think so because the file on the DVD is an .mpeg file. I would have to edit the Roxio Media Production file itself, which will not open in 9. I will have to rethink this on Monday. Thanks for your help.

Alas, I may have to start over - 252 slides with overlays, texts and custom transitions... but maybe also worth a try to reinstall VideoWave 7.5, make the edits, create an .mpg file, THEN burn the final in My DVD 9.0. Seems amazing that I would have to do either! ;) Thanks.

I have both EMC 7.5 and EMC 9 on my computer. I had uninstalled everything, then installed EMC 9, got it up and running, and then installed EMC 7.5. Doing it in this manner results in all programs in both Roxio suites operating properly.

 

Leaving EMC 7.5 on my computer, then installing EMC 9 resulted in some of the programs in each suite, not operating properly. You should be good to go with the install of EMC 7.5, again. It won't work if Internet Explorer 7 is installed, though.

Ahhh, I was under the impression that you opened a EMC 7.5 .dmsm file, in EMC 9. If you had done it that way, then no text or transitions would have transferred.

 

How hard would it be to start the project from scratch, in EMC 9 VideoWave? As long as you don't have an NVidia video card, you will be able to use any of the transitions that you want to.

Thanks, but the reason I installed 9.0 (I bought it months ago but didn't install it due to warnings from other users) was because 7.5 would not burn my project to a DVD. Maybe I should reinstall 7.5 to edit the program, save it, then burn it to a DVD in 9.0. Seems crazy, but if it's the only solution, I can give it a try. Thanks again.

Barring any burner problem, you should be able to burn any video-folder set or iso file created from 7.5 in EMC9.

I am able to burn the file in EMC9, but I'm not able to open it to edit in VideoWave in EMC9. Thanks.
