Render Hangs


ConfusedbyRoxio

Question

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create a slide show. I add five photos, no audio and take all of the defaults. When I select "create file" in the output section, the application hangs at zero percent complete. I have to cancel the operation to continue. I'm running XP Home on a Intel Dual Core Duo w/ 2Gb of memory. I updated the video drivers for my nVidia GeForce 7300 LE video card. Any suggestions?

Do all your editing in VideoWave.

 

I'm a video buff, and have three other video editing programs. New/loaded machine, latest drivers, lots of space. But I rarely use Roxio's Videowave because two of my other three programs are more to my liking.

 

However, I wanted to use an effect available only on Roxio, so I opened it up, imported the movie, added the effect, and tried to Render. And I am having the same problem with VideoWave. Once I choose "Render" the program freezes, window shows 0%, and restart never resurrects the file or even acknowledges it has just crashed (like many other programs do).

 

It's been my experience all video editing programs freeze, and it's too common to find that there's no patch or other type of real solution to problems like this. A select handful of products stand out above the rest, among other reasons because they address and fix this type of problem quickly.

 

Maybe Roxio should strive to join those elite few.

 

The typical "update your driver," "close down unnecessary programs running in the background," and "clean out your hard drive" cop-outs are another way of saying, "we have no Earthly idea whatsoever how to fix this bug."

Not a cop out if you have a low end computer, and it works when you shut down background prcesses.

 

Maintaining one's computer with updated drivers is also good.

Since there are at least 3 applications that allow you to make slide shows, please tell us which one you are using. In order of preference - 1) Video Wave 2) Slide Show Assistant under the photo tab (3 step) and 3) Slide Show Assistant in MyDVD (2 step).

 

Sound like you are using the one under the photo tab (3 steps). If so, click the button to edit in Video Wave and save the project there. Do all your editing in VideoWave.

0% progress is a video card driver issue. Did you update those drivers following Nvidia's instructions? Uninsatll current, reboot to basic Windows ones, install new drivers.

I am using the "create slideshow" option under "photos". I tried exporting to Video Wave and I had the identical problem in Video Wave.

 

I downloaded the latest drivers from nVidia, uninstalled the current driver, rebooted the machine and installed that latest drivers according to nVidia's instructions.

Try creating your production in VideoWave. There are known problems with the Assistant.
