Emc 7.5 Videowave Audio Playback/preview


robscherb

Question

:) Greetings, Here's the deal...after creating a project with videowave and embedding audio along with the still shots and transitions, during playback/preview prior to completing the project and burning it, I encounter a strange problem. The storyboard progresses through each frame with the transitions but the audio just sounds like white noise. However, I can take the same audio source file and play it using any player and it plays fine. Why does this happen? I discovered that if I choose to output the project to a device (DVD Burner) and render the project, the final product is totally fine. No audio issues and the frame transitions are perfect. What's the story here? I am running an AMD 3200+ with Windows XP and a GIG of RAM and a 128MB PCI e video card so I doubt it's the PC:( ROXIO offers no answers. Maybe someone else has had similar issues. Any input is appreciated :huh:

Thanks for the input but my drivers were updated when I built this PC 3 weeks ago. So, I don't see that as a problem. It's the weirdest thing...every other function is quite normal. There's a couple of other ways of getting around the issue. I am not that familiar with ROXIO stuff. I used the CD burner software in the past, but never melded audio and video together in a DVD output. I think there's a woman having similar issues under another topic. Her comcern is garbled audio...that's exactly what I am getting during preview/playback only.

 

But, did you try what I told you to do?

Yes

I checked out the Direct X diagnostics in every level of acceleration and normal playback was not a problem. When I add audio to a new project and try to preview it I get the white noise. If I render it and burn it, it turns out perfect. It's a stumper...

 

Try going to the Tools\ Options\ File Control and delete the audio preview files.

 

 

I did as suggested and it is still a distortion problem. It's real freaky. But, as long as I can render it and burn it without issues, I'm good to go.

You have not answered my question. I did not say anything about testing in dxdiag, because those tests mean absolutely nothing!!!! Did you try reducing the acceleration?????????

 

Ahhh forget it, I don't care. Someone else can help you. I am not a dentist. I don't pull teeth to get information.

I am not sure what deleting the audio preview files would do for me. Isn't the point of preview to determine if your project needs editing or it's ready to burn? I can do without the white noise I suppose but it seems to be another glitch with ROXIO software.

Do you have an onboard audio chip? First, update the drivers for it, and if that doesn't work, try the following:

 

In Start/Run, type in dxdiag. When it opens, click on the Sound tab, and move the Hardware Sound Acceleration slider, to the left, a few notches. Exit dxdiag, and check your sound, in VideoWave, again. If it is okay, update the drivers for your sound card, and see if it still sounds okay in VideoWave. If it does, go back to dxdiag, and move the slider all the way back to the right. Exit dixdiag, and check sound in VideoWave, again. If it is okay, you are good to go.

Ok. I know you don't think deleting the audio preview files will work.... and it might not, but it couldn't hurt. If the program starts out by messing up the preview files, deleting the files will help. Deleting the files will cause VW to generate a new preview file.

 

This might be an off the wall question, but do you have your audio and video files on the same hard drive?
