Can't Get To My Edited Dvd


EdSpode

Question

I'm not very good at this film editting but you have always been a source of solving my problems.

 

I have successfully edittted two old 1947 and 1963 16mm films. I added some verbage to the film, most of the people have long past and my kids won't know who they are. Now when I go back to MYDVD 10 to do some more editting, I hit "My Menu" as usual but it bounces back and won't open the the file. I can burn the unfinished file but I can't open it to do more editting. I need your help... Any suggestions.

Thanks,

I don't understand what you are doing. To edit a movie , in the Project View panel, select Movies, then select the movie you want to edit, then "edit Movie" or if showing the Menu view, select the movie then Edit Movie.

If this does not help, then please describe in detail exactly what you want to do and how you are doing it.

 

BTW, Videowave is the program to use if you are editing video, adding transition,text, audio, etc. myDVD is more for menu creation and burning.

Thank you for your quick response. Sorry that I did not explain my delemma in complete detail. Here is a more complete explanation: I had a local shop convert some very old, silent 16mm film to a DVD format. I use myDVD to edited and add voice-over and background music. To me, myDVD and Videowave progams are identical and offer all of the same features. I can't tell the difference between the two.

 

Anyway, after working on the project for 5 or 6 hours I was just about finished with a 12 minute show that I want to send to my cousin because it includes scenes from his 1962 wedding. I had spliced together 4 or 5 chapters, added some voice-over, and some background music. I saved my work about every 5 minutes. And I watched the final version many times using myDVD while making small edit changes. It looked and sounded great!!!! I closed down my program, had dinner, and returned to the computer about 7pm. When I tried to open the program in myDVD and do a little more editting, that's when my problem started.

 

I did exactly the sequence mentioned in your messgae but when I hit edit a screen appears saying, "Can not Find Required Files" It's a WAV file. I tried to "Locate" "Show Files" "Retry" etc but without any luck. I've search my computer's hard drive but,again, no luck. Even when I hit "Skip" a screen appears saying, "All missing files must be resolved before editing the production." So, now I can't do a final edit. I did burn a DVD copy that plays on my TV. It looks great but the voice-overs and background music are missing.

 

I hope this explains my problem. Any advice and/or solution would be appreciated. Thanks... Ed

Once again, the best option is to use Video Wave. There is a ton of difference and you would be able to resolve the issues easier.

 

The program is telling you that the original files have been moved. Where was the wav file? Was it on a separate disc? Did you try to use Windows search to find the wav file? If the program can't find it and you can't find it, it has to be somewhere else like on a removable disc. No one did any clean up of your computer while you were having dinner did they? they could have deleted that file accidentally. Look in your recycle bin for the wav file.

Thanks for the info. I have move everything to Video Wave and will redo the voice-over and the background music. The "WAV file" is probably in Cyber-heaven so the heck with it.

 

Thanks again for your time and info.... Ed in PA
