Plug In Background Loops, Video Overlay Effects and Transitions


alpine711

Question

Does anyone know how well Plug-In background loops, overlay effects and transitions work with EMC 9? I'm looking into "Digital Hotcakes" and am wondering if anyone has used this or another plug-in with EMC 9. Was the final product what you expected? Were there any "hic-cups"? Were there any compatability issues?

Not sure what you mean by 'plug-in'. Videowave/MyDVD can use just about any type of video file for backgrounds or overlays. However, the only transitions is what is built-in.

 

I have about 12 DVDs from Digital Juice which uses the Quicktime format. For the most part, Videowave/MyDVD has no problem with the files, BUT I can not use the alpha channel overlays or transitions. Basically, the files 'should' work because Videowave has an option for alpha channel files. For some reason, that option doesn't seem to work with Quicktime files with alpha channel.

 

Digital Juice has all kinds of stuff even audio tracks and snippets, but not cheap. LOL I bought mine during last Xmas holiday sale. :)

 

Thanks ggrussell. That's exactly what I needed to know. I looked at Digital Juice as well, and both products seem to be very similar.....price, too, unfortunately. I am really looking to put some real dazzle in my projects and was hoping these 'plug-ins' (that's what I call one software working along with another software to enhance the final product - not the technical word I'm sure) would really be the ticket. Digital Hotcakes uses Quicktime as well, however, does list it IS capable of alpha channel and chroma-key with Videowave 9 (although, I must admit I'm not quite sure what that is, yet.). http://www.animationsforvideo.com/html/compatibility.htm Perhaps its worth a try.

One thing nice about Digital Juice, their software - Juicer - you can export or render out only a portion of the background and it still be a perfect loop. Tons of options like colorizing and several formats like AVI. I've found though that Videowave handles the MOV files just fine. Digital Juice also offers 'deal of the month' with DEEP discounts (like up to $500 off a package).

Thanks. I'll definitely look more into Digital Juice.
