.iso file _deleting VWproject


ubiediting

Question

Hallo,

I would like to know if; after burning an.iso file of a small VW project which I will hold, until a bigger project is also ready to burn, and then add the small .iso, can the VW project of the small .iso file be safely deleted as I am uncertain if this will make the small .iso file unusable?

Thanking you in advance, as when I try to respond to other helpful comments I get a dialog box saying _ sorry you do not have permission to reply to that topic_although I am loged, in and on previous posts have been able to so do

Kindly advise, ubiediting

Burning from a .iso file doesn't do anything to the original file - same as opening a file with winzip or winrar won't affect the original. Think of a .iso as an archive (in fact, you can open it with winrar and extract the contents in the same manner as any other archive).

Hallo gi7omy,

Very good of you to reply, I wanted to delete all of the original VW project to save space, and if I read you correctly this will not make the .iso file unusable?

For reason I do not know the reply button works again.

Thank You, ubiediting

 

I'm pretty sure you can't burn two ISOs on one disk. You'll have to extract the smaller project from the ISO then add it to your bigger VW project to create a new all-inclusive ISO.

Hallo sisterscape,

Thank you for your useful reply which I will certainly carry out.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you want to do, so please let me know if I'm wrong.....

 

You've already made part of a movie(project) that you want to add to another movie that you're working on.

 

---- If that is what you want to do, then in VideoWave, you'd be better off doing a File\Output production as..... and choose a Video File for DVD authoring(mpeg2) OR for a DV Camcorder(DV AVI).

 

That will give you a finished movie that you can add to the storyline of the movie you're currently working on. Then you can delete the original files of the first movie.

 

---- If all you have is an .iso file, you can 'burn' the file to a DVD or your hard drive and CAPTURE the video to use on your second movie storyline.

 

Whichever you do, DO NOT delete the .iso file until you've burned it to a DVD or your hard drive and CAPTURED the movie ......OR have output the original production to a new finished movie that you can add to your second movie.

 

If I've misunderstood what you're trying to do, I apologize.

Hallo ml.

I am most grateful for the detailed and helpful reply.

Regards, ubiediting

That's true to an extent sister - but what you can do is create a CD that contains iso images as iso

 

I remember a beta of PowerQuest Partition Magic years ago (they used to send us the betas on CD instead of us downloading but that was in dial-up days) where someone had just added the iso to the CD instead of using it to create the CD. I had to copy it over and burn it myself :lol:
