Black Still

Question

I composed a photoshow with stills in videowave. The show plays fine. Put show in MyDVD and assembled menus and then previewed. Show was fine. Burnt to an image file. Burnt image file to 3 DVD's and 1 frame was black on all discs. What happened? What software can I use to preview the image file to see it before I burn another to disc?

Sknis,

 

Tried that and burnt another image to disc. Had the same trouble but in another spot in the production. Did a "repair" on EMC9 and that seems to have fixed things. A couple of weeks ago I gutted my 'puter and put in new motherboard, memory and processor. Had to format hard drive and start from scratch. This was the first project I burnt since the reload and all was well until I viewed on the DVD.

 

Thanks for your help. I'll keep all those fixes in the back of my mind for later use.

Had a similiar problem with black frames appearing after burnng to DVD. The images I was using were on an external drive so I moved them to the hard drive and the problem did not reoccur

Mount a virtual disc (under tools) add the ISO file to the virtual disc and use CinePlayer to play it.

 

Did you use software rendering?

Thanks for the quick reply. I used software rendering. The transition before the black frame is not 3d so should not be an issue. I will try the virtual drive to check.

sknis,

 

Thanks tried the virtual drive and it played. Had the black frame as i did on the DVD. The transition before the black frame was just a dissolve. Any ideas?

 

Replace/edit the image that doesn't want to display. Try just double clicking on it and doing a minimal edit in the photoeditor that pops up. Watch the preview or output it to a mpg2 file. If it displays properly, just use that in MyDVD. If it does not, check the file format and use a photo editor to change it to a jpeg file; even if it is a jpeg file.
