Are you rendering to a DV AVI file using Videowave? If you are, what you have described as shakey is a known problem that was well documented in the old forums (which now are no longer accessible). I do not remember the exact timeframe that it occurs, but as I recall, your time between 13 to 16 minutes is close.

 

If possible, try rendering to an MPEG2 file and you should not get the shakey action. OR, if you need to do something greater than 12 minutes, try puttting still pictures with dissolve transitions in that time frame. The issue is still present, but does not appear due to the still pictures and the non-action dissolve transitions.

i am using videowave, it dosent seem to matter if i render avi or mpeg2.

what ive been doing is using the 12min as a chapter point.

i do about 20 mudbogg dvds a summer that are about 1hr to 1 1/2 hour long, just something that has plauged me for a while

I don't quite understand what you mean by "shakey"?

 

The problem that Merv is describing starts at 12:30:25 and stops at 15:50:25 in a rendered avi file. If you go to the 12:30:25 in the preview window in Videowave and use the single frame advance you should see that only every second frame shows a change, that is, between the times listed there are two consecutive identical frames. I have never checked this in a mpg frame rendered from avi files.

Ahhh, it is all coming back to me now. The time, the double frames, etc. But I only remember the issue occuring when an output to DV AVI from Videowave was selected. If an output to MPEG2 was selected or going directly to DVDBuilder, the double frames did not occur. When I first experienced that, I was using AVIs as source files and rendered to MPEG2. The double frames did not occur but I experienced audio/video sync problems with the MPEG2 so I had to go back to the DV AVI. Just used the still pictures in that timeframe as indicated in my first post.

 

Thanks for the memory jogger, Walt.

 

 

i guess that shakey is not a good discription , but not smooth maybe

that is exactly the time it starts and ends any solutions?

 

If it occurs with both MPEG2 and AVIs, the only thing I can suggest is to keep each Videowave project to under 12:30, import each into DVDBuilder, and set them to play consecutively. The other alternative is the still picture idea from my first post.

 

To my knowledge, no one came up with a definitive solution to the problem nor did Roxio issue a fix.
