Question Re: Undoing Auto-Color


Rottie95

Question

Hello, I am a newbie here and with this program. I inserted a video that I wanted to edit and for some reason I also pressed on the auto-color button and now all I get is a green screen instead of my video. How do I undo this?

 

Secondly, how do you save your file as wmv when the only choice is dmsm? :unsure: Can you save an edited video with this program into a format that will play great when burned to a dvd for tv viewing? I know I get great results with alot of the wmv videos I have.

 

I figured out how to edit the front and end of a video but how do you edit contents within the video that I wan to cut out.

 

I am sure I will be having lots of questions as I try to learn how to work this software so I hope the folks here are patient ones ;)

 

Thanks, Karen

 

OK, I managed to click on the icon next to the auto-color and fiddled with that and then reselected auto color but now all I get is a black image. My video is showing in the video section of production manager but up top all I get is a black box, no video is showing at all.

 

Since I have spent the last 4 hours with this and it is 2:45 am, I am quitting for the night. I sure hope there are people who can help me with my first dilemma.

Thank you for the advise everyone. However, I am still having trouble. I did view the Sknis and I thought it would work. Here is what I am getting: Once I clip to where I want my video, I still get a green box in the preview box and with that, cannot view the video itself. This is very frustrating. I have tried cutting, clipping and nothing works. When I use the feature to show the video in sequence clips (program not open now so I don't have the right wording) I see the first three scenes but the remaining scenes are shown in green.

 

How do I get rid of the green so I can view the videos?

 

Thanks, Karen

Did you over-write the original video by saving the green one as the same name? If so, you are out of luck and will have to get that original file again. If you saved it under a different name, then you should be able to start from scratch. Read on.

 

Use Windows to navigate to the folder where the original video is and right clcik it to play it. If it is not green, you didn't overwrite it and you can use it again.

 

You should be able to open your project, make sure you are in Story Board view and delete the green one. Then you can add the original file in that place. (add after the current panel).

Each of the programs within the Suite has it's own native format for Save. Actually all that is saved is a note file for the program containing the name and location of the source files and all of the editing you have applied to them. Your original source files are never altered in any way.

 

I don't know how to fix the auto-color but if you started a New project and load your clip, it will come in with none of your previous edits!

 

There will be times when you would like to 'fix up' a clip and save it for reuse. In those cases File – Output As, will present you with a large choice of options to render your file to.

Good advice James. If I may address the one you missed. :rolleyes:

 

Read some of the posts in the EMC V9 tips and trick section for a lot of good information. Look at the one about cutting out sections of a video and watch the demo videos.

 

As for the auto-color, Video Wave has an undo feature. I forget how many undo's there are but that should do it if you don't close out the program. This has saved me many times when I accidentally selected the wrong section of a video to delete.
