Missing Pictures in DVD

Question

I created a DVD using EMC9. When playing the file before using MYDVD everything plays beautifyly. After using MYDVD and producing the DVD, some pictures appear to be not recognized and appear in the DVD as a black frame like the picture was not read. Was there a possible conversion issue. Not sure I understand what I did wrong. HELP. THis is for an upcoming Anniversary Celebration.

To solict further input, the process I went through after creating the slideshow was to edit in video wave. I used the "disolve" transitions set at .7 sec along with my photos set at 3.5 sec, added music and added video. I reviewed the entire production before going to MyDVD and it played great. The entire production is about 40 minutes. Any insight why some photos at the end of the production would show up as black frames (obviously skipping over pictures that were in the production)?

From VideoWave, try outputting your production as a DV-AVI file, and play it in Windows Media Player or whatever you use for watching video on your computer.

 

If all looks good, try burning that to a DVD in MyDVD, and see if it comes out right.

Thanks grandpabruce. Will give it a shot. I am sooooo close to having this done and to have about 10 photos missing at the end is pretty frustrating.

One other question. Did you use the Slide show Assistant to make the production?

Yes I did use the slideshow. I'm having difficult getting this to .avi. Am getting ready to try this whole project with Windows Movies Maker and return the Roxio product. The last couple of days I tried redoing the movie and more pictures have been dropping off. I am befuttled and as you can imagine, very frustrated.

Have you tried updateing Directx9 and your drivers for your video card yet (from the manufacturer site, not from MS updates)?

There are known problems with the Assistant. If you are going to do it over, open VideoWave, and do it there. I would bet that your problem disappears.

I did that last night as a recommended fix from Roxio. Same problem exists after going though all of their steps.

 

GrandpaBruce,

I thought about doing that but was unsure how to add blank slides as the intro to the different chapters I have in the slide show. The only way I could figure out how to do that was to create them using Word, scan the slide and add it as a picture. Not the cleanest way. Besides, after all of the hoop law I was told about this product, to have to always do work arounds is annoying. thanks

I take it your "I did that last night..." statement is referring to the video drivers, correct?

 

As to having an "intro" as you described it, you would have problems doing that when using the assistant. The assistant may be ok at times if all you want is a quick basic slide show with some pictures, music, and a preset group of transitions. But if you want to be able to tweak it, like adding some text as an intro, then you need to work in Videowave (as has been noted).

 

To get a text intro to your pictures in Videowave, simply add a color panel at the beginning, then add text to it's internal text track.

I did check to make sure that I was using the current video drivers.

 

Tried pretty much everything again last night to no avail. Problem with trying to figure this out and complete steps is that it requires long blocks of time that I can't affford until the weekends. Will try some more then.

I have been having the same problem. I have created a jpeg slideshow in MyDVD. Some from scanned Photos, some from Digital Cameras. All the Digital camera Photos work fine. Most of the Scanned jpeds work OK, but some do not. I have tried reducing the resolution and/or file size on the images that do not display until they are lower than those that do display, to no avail. There is nothing in the documentation about the maximum file size or resolution limitations.

I have, of course updated to the latest version of Direct X and updated my video drivers (both already at the latest). No change. No help from tech support (I have a ticket out on it...)

I have found no workaround.

With this lack of support, I am not inclined to upgrade to the latest version of Roxio. Can anyone recommend an alternate brand of software that makes good DVD slideshow/video disks (with menus)?
