Videowave Preview Missing Sound


mikemolang@rcn.com

Question

I started creating a video compilation in EMC7.5 Video wave. I added all of the avi files, and trimmed many of them. Since then I moved to EMC8. I load the production in VM8 and everything seems fine, but when I preview it plays the first clip but then after a transistion the sound cuts out. If I monkey around, (dbl click the next avi to edit for instance), the sound plays, and then if I restart the preview I hear more sound, but eventually it cuts out again.

 

I need to experiment more to see if the same problem exists when I create from scratch in EMC7.5, but has anyone aready done the trouble shooting on this?

Hi, Mike -

 

I'm having the same problem with version 8 - audio dropping off during DVD project editing preview. Click around and/or reload and audio comes back. Fortunately, I can burn the project to DVD disc and everyting runs just fine.

 

I'm using XP Pro with all updates and an ATI AIW 9600 video card and a Soundblaster "Live!" (CT4620) audio card on an Intel 865GLC motherboard with a Pentium 4, 3.0 processor and 512 of RAM.

 

I tried increasing the RAM to 1.5MB and a dif sound card. I completely uninstalled all ATI files, reinstalled Intel board drivers, reinstalled ATI drivers with upgraded version. Same results. Audio still drops shortly after starting Preview of edited project.

 

Audio was OK until project got to a few moments long with added 1 60 sec music file and 8 transitions (Intro movie).

 

Thought I'd mention all this to save you some work and see if any of our products are common.

I am experienceing the problem described at the beginning of this thread on 1/5/06 in VideoWave 9. Did anyone find a solution here? It might work for me in version 9.

(I have opened a thread in the EMC Version 9 message board too).

 

 

 

Thanks.

Did more testing...

 

I shut down and restarted VW8, added avi's into a new project, and started preview. Same thing happened... PLayer for a while, but eventaully at a transition to a new scene the audio cut out and does not return unless I monkey around. For instance, if i click on the little 'adjust volume' speaker and then clcik elsewhere (without even changing any settings) sometimes it will come back. Sometimes not.

 

I updated my sound card drivers, no improvement.

 

Very dissapointing. Especially since I have tried to roll back to EMC7.5 and when I do my CD and DVD drives go missing from my computer. Is anyone else having this problem?

I have a similar problem, but I started with V8.0.5. Created a new project and added some MPG video clips in CineMagic. Clicked edit in VideoWave. All clips played correctly when selected individually in VideoWave.

When previwed, the video was correct but there was no audio. :) I could find no way to get any audio in the MPG clips to play when previewing. : :huh:

More info...

 

If I load the files, then go to the last file in the production and double click it, letting it play, then the rest of the files will play without going silent. In fact, I think that it will essentially play through the last file I dbl-clk, regardless of which one. (If that becomes important for someone to trouble shoot the problem, let me know and I will confirm.)

 

HOWEVER I STILL HAVE A PROBLEM...

 

I am getting a brief pause and a noticable click at each transition. This happenes even if I take a clip and use VM8 to split the clip, meaning it is not a problem with the source video. This was not a problem in VM7.5.

 

Can anyone else repeat these problems?

 

Thanks,

Mike
