Videowave Update Crashes Old Productions.


dvsails

Question

Just updated my Creator 8 and discovered that VideoWave now crashes as soon as I try to open an old production from Creator 7. It then sends an Error Report to MS. :)

It will however create new productions without a crash.

 

Is it possible to install VideoWave from the Creator 7 disc in addition to VideoWave 8?

(V7 for editing old productions and V8 for creating new ones?)

Well now I know that I'm not alone. I even had a new V8 production crash when switching to timeline but when I restarted VideoWave and put that new production back in I was abel to switch to timeline without crashing. :D

I think I'll continue with my V7 for a while and hope that Roxio gets some of these bugs resolved. Can't imagine why they wouldn't make the program backward compatible?? Why would they not have the old transitions in the new program and just add to them? Or at least have the option of importing the previous set for those of us that used V7.

UPDATE:

I've now discovered that VideoWave 8 works with productions from VW 7 as long as it's not updated to 8.05:

 

After re-installing EMC 8 from the discs I was able to open and edit a couple of productions from VW7.

I then saved those under a new name in the VW8 program and upgraded again to Vs 8.05. Now as soon as I open an old production and even the once that I had edited and saved in VW8 under a different name, VW8 crashes again. :huh::)

I'm sure that you found that V 8 is much different than V 7.and a lot of things have changed. A simple example is that not all the transitions that were in V7 are supported in V8 so it doesn't know how to handle them. Perhaps you used one of those transitions? :) I jury rigged a V7 production into V8 and it opened but I I tried to go to the timeline, VideoWave crashed. :D

 

If you want to, of course you can burn a production to a video file and then import it into V8 to edit in timeline. That works if you do not have to make a lot of changes. I took that crashed production, found and removed an image and the transition associated with that image that was mis-located and then added the audio that I wanted. I did save myself from starting over but I probably not much.

 

Thanks, I re-installed my old VideoWave 7 and at least it still works ok with my previous *.dmsm productions.

Any Idea why the VS 8 VideoWave program crashes immediately when told to open a VS 7 production?

Should 8 not be backward compatible? :huh:
