Preview Control Bar Missing


Dave Neylon

Question

HELP!!!

 

My daughter is working on a school video project and somehow, the preview control bar (the one with play, pause, stop, counter, etc.) is missing in the Edit Video, or Productiion window. This is the place where you add video clips, transitions, text overlays, etc. to make a finished production. I've re-booted a few times to no avail. Is there a place where this preview control is hidden?

Apologies, I just joined today. This is my first post (sorry about the duplicate posting).

I'll take a look at the Clean Install procedure. I've been running over a year now and have made sevearl additions to my system.

Dell Dimension 4600

(I'll get more system info once I get home)

I've added firewire card, 2G of ram, WD 500G external hard drive.

We've made several videos so far with no problems, other than the learning curve. This is the first time this problem has shown up. It was working fine last night.

 

Did you (or someone else) change your display settings? A lot of times the problem is related to that. Make sure that you are set to a resolution higher than the minimum and that you have the Windows font set to 96 DPI.

 

Also reinstall your video card/chip drivers; they may have been corrupted. Update DirectX (that's probably not the solution but it is a good thing to do).

This is me on another login. I re-botted and started Roxio back up and it seened to work fine. My PC is getting really bogged down when Roxio tries to perform most tasks.

Yes, it does take a lot of resources and requires people to do a lot of maintenance -- get rid of temp/tmp files, clean out spyware, defrag frequently, update drivers and firmware. It also works better if the computer is shut down periodically to get off some of the really temporary stuff.

 

When I was working and had a computer issue, my IT people would always tell me to re-boot. That usually cured the problem. Thanks Microsoft for making that built in function (programs not working) to remind you to reboot your computer periodically.

I assume you are working in Videowave. Did the controls ever show up?

There is no option to hide/unhide the preview controls to my knowledge - they should always be there

 

Have you tried the Clean Install procedure?

 

It would help if you were to list your system specs, especially video card. Whar operating system are you running?

Are your video card drivers up-to-date?
