Extremly Slow Saves In Videowave


sersie

Question

I am using Videowave to produce a DVD of a trip I did to Moscow. I currently have about 200 photos in there with transitions and no audio (yet) and it takes several minutes to save when I do so. I had similar problems on a production where I had 300 or more photos and audio tracks and it took about 5+ minutes to save the thing off.

 

Is this normal?? If so it really is unfortunate because it definitely discourages frequent saves in order to save progress, which I seem to have needed due to some crashing of Videowave I have hit while trying to edit and move around the text tracks for titling my photos (frequent crashes).

Jenn, put the text on the internal track for each image. That text stays with the image so if you rearrange the images, the text goes with it. It wasn't clear if that is what you are doing. To get to the internal track, double click on the image. The internal tracks appear yellow. Drag the text style to the image. Edit it and then click the icon to return to the main tracks.

That will save you some work (if you haven't been doing it that way).

 

Did you get a lot of good pictures? Hvae you tried to share them with some of you friends using the V8/Media Manager/Live Share? People you send an invitation to can see your pictures on your computer as long as you are sharing. The person receiving your invitation see them as a web page. This way you don't have to upload those pictures to a photoservice and people don't have to sign uup for an account (and get spam from them)

 

Sorry I digressed from the original topic but I hope you find this helpful. :)

 

Thanks for the tip on the internal text track. I ended up going with some self made interim slides with some text on it that I made in my paint program, but I would have liked to use some of the text in EMC8 for some extra explanation text. I tend to not go the narration route as I like the more subdued effect of photos/videos and a nice soundtrack, however, that means some of the photos go unexplained and I get a lot of, "What's that?"

 

Yes, I got loads of good pictures from Moscow, though I have not shared out using the Live Share. I didn't know about it. I typically use something like Flickr.com on which I have a pro account I just bought and I have been storing things there.

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.2GHz

Memory: 2048MB RAM

Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT

Display Memory: 256.0 MB

Hard Drives: Two 120 GB, 7200 RPM, 8 MB Cache (37 Gigs free on my OS drive where Videowave is)

 

It is not a bad machine (I use if for gaming all the time), so I can't imagine that the problem is the machine, but at this point I am open to anything to get this fixed.

Well I found part of the problem.

 

savscan.exe, which apparently is part of Norton antivirus scanning was sucking up a ton of resources every time I went to save. I disabled Norton and cut the save time in half or more. So now it takes about 40 or 50 seconds compared to 2.5 minutes per save on pretty much the same project. I still think that is a long time for a save, but it is something I can live with at least if it doesn't get too much larger for the really big productions.

 

Any other pointers on what might be going on though would be appreciated.
