Missing Photos from SlideShow


GOOSEMON

Question

Hey folks, I just finished creating a movie production of our trip to Disneyland. It contains movies and slide shows. The bummer part is that after burning the production the slide show is missing photos. At first I thought it was a glitch, so I went back and edited the slide show. However, the next encoding was even worse. I started losing more photos. What I mean is that there would be a black screen where the photo was. Can anyone tell me what is going on?

 

I would hate to recreate this because it's huge.

 

Thanks...

Thanks Skins. You are correct in that I have already updated my video card graphics driver. Also, I just ran a dxdiag and I am running DirectX 9c. I did shutdown my antivirus and was disconnected from the web. I have learned that when encoding a DVD or just plain working with ROXIO you need to free up as much resources as possible. As for burning to an ISO, that is the only way I do it.

 

Everything you mentioned I have already done. The only tough thing is that when a production gets over 4gigs, ROXIO starts freaking out. I will try and defrag my hard drive before encoding again. If you have any other suggestions that would be great.

 

By the way, the slide show was created in MyDVD. I was thinking of deleting the slide show and rebuilding it. However, that would be a work around and I would hate for that to be the fix.

Thanks for the troubleshooting, however, my drives are formated for NTFS. I will go ahead and try to create the slide show in Videowave and hopefully that will solve the problem.

 

I really never had problems with ROXIO except for it's picky nature when it comes to video cards and resource management. It seems like the app. is a real resource hog. But then again I am using it for video editing and 1 hour of video footage is approx. 12 gigs.

 

 

Thanks for the troubleshooting techniques. I will go ahead and post back when all is finished.

The fact that you are having problems when the production gets > 4GB seems to indicate that your hard drive is formatted as FAT32 which limits file size to 4GB. Reformat to NTFS and you can create larger files.

Are you having the same problems if you create a smaller production?

 

Also, the better way to create your slideshow is to use Videowave to assemble your images, add audio, effects, transictions etc. and only use myDVD to create the menus and do the burn.

I'm back. I went ahead and created the slide show within VideoWave and all worked fine. I made sure to be disconnected from the net and my firewall/AV was disabled. Also, I defraged my hard drive. It took about 6 hrs to encode a 4.5 gig video. That's a long time.

 

Once again, thanks for all the troubleshooting techniques.

Glad it worked for you. I guesss we forgot to tell you to go out and play a round of golf or get a good night's sleep while it was encoding. :P

Short answer, update your video card drivers (which you probably already did) update DirectX 9c; switch to software render if you have no 3D transitions. Defrag your hard drive, disconnect from the internet, shut down all running programs inclusing your anti virus and anti-malware programs, Set you computer to best performance and not "Windows decide" and finally burn to an iso file rather than directly to a disc. Read other post on the same subject to find out why if you are interested.
