Encoding 0% And Doesn't Move.


dakota74

Question

I have EMC 10 and am trying to burn an avi file onto it as a DVD. I am using myDVD.

 

My computer stats are in my sig; the issue is that when I go to try to burn the file, it brings up the encoding screen with the little preview window at the bottom and has the 0% progress indicator, but it never moves from that, ever.

 

Also, this happens if I try to burn just to an ISO file as well. Doesn't matter.

 

FYI, I have uninstalled and reinstalled.......twice.

 

I used to have EMC 8 on my other Dell, and running WinXP SP2. I never had issues with REALLY long burning times, and I've made DVDs of everything.......legal and not. Menus, all that stuff. They took a few hours, yeah, but I immediately saw things happen when I said to burn -- to disc or to ISO file. The progress indicator moved and the preview window started to show something.

 

Also, and I don't know if this is related or not, when I do add a movie, if I click on the title to move it to another area of the menu screen, the size of the title changes automatically and it moves to the extreme upper area of the menu screen -- I can't even go and grab it with the mouse.......what the hell it THAT also??

 

Thanks so much for all the help in advance.......

Yes it works with some other avi's I've tested. Unfortunately, this avi file is the recorded video from my video recording software I use to record events for clients. It worked with Roxio version 8/9, neoDVD5, a trial copy of Nero and Studio I have or used to have on my system. I purchased Roxio EMC10 to improve my videos workflow on my new system and it's a real disappointment. But since I've always used Adaptec/Roxio software without problems I have faith.

 

Can you test with another type of file besides these AVIs? Even though they worked in the older application it would be good to know if EMC 10 has problems with these files or if the application itself isn't functioning properly.

I have no problem loading the avi clip you listed into Videowave or myDVD (using EMC 10) and it plays in either program all the way through. It also plays fine in myDVD preview. When I try to output in VW or in myDVD it always hangs at 1 sec and 10 frames. I then trimmed off 1 sec and 15 frames from the beginning and could then output in both programs without any problem. It tried loading the avi into Windows Movie Maker and it would not load stating that the required codec is not present. I have no problem playing the avi with Windows Media Player 9.

Thanks that is very interesting. Didn't try this as VideoWave8 was able to output the file as an mpeg, so didn't think there was a file corruption. I'll try trimming off a couple seconds from a few of the many videos I have accumulated from this recorder.

 

I tried trimming off a couple seconds and it now works. Problem with my current project is the raw video is a music performance with only 1/2 second silence before the start of the songs. Unless this can be corrected by Roxio I will need to remember to start recording a few more seconds to allow the trimming later. The trouble with the performers at the event I needed to record is that rather than waiting for my cue they consistently started when my finger pressed the start button.

I'm having similar problems and haven't been able to resolve the issue. I have an open ticket and have tried everything they suggest without success. I have installed the latest Nvidia drivers without any improvement.

Try setting MyDVD to 'software' render. Open MyDVD, goto TOOLS / Options. At the top of the dialog box, you will see the graphics test button. MyDVD probably defaulted to hardware for your video card. Click on Software so the 'dot' is beside it and click OK. Then try burning you project again.

 

Caveat: 3D transitions and effects will not be available.

Thanks alot, I'll try that when I get home from work. How do I know if I have Vista 32 or 64 bit?

 

If you don't know I would say there is a 99% chance it is 32 bit. Generally folks have to go out and specifically purchase the 64 bit version if they want it, so you would probably know if you had it.

I tried software and hardware settings with no difference, been through this on the thread I started on this. The avi is a Divx5 file and I have the codec on my system. I verified that this works by doing the same operation in MyDvd8 and it worked.

 

Here is a link to a sample of the avi's I'm having problems with: Sample AVI

 

What kind of AVI file? Source? Use Gspot to see what kind it is and if the codec is on your computer.

2. The operating system appears as follows:• For a 64-bit version operating system: 64-bit Operating System appears for the System type under System.

• For a 32-bit version operating system: 32-bit Operating System appears for the System type under System.

 

 

Method 2

1. Click Start, type system in the Start Search box, and then click System Information in the Programs list.

2. The operating system appears as follows:• For a 64-bit version operating system: x64-based PC appears for the System type under Item.

• For a 32-bit version operating system: x86-based PC appears for the System type under Item.

Videowave and MyDVD 10 , both, locked up using that file. I took it into another application and it also had a problem although I was able to output to a MPEG file. You will probably need a dedicated DivX app to convert these properly before using in MyDVD.

Or you could right click My Computer and choose properties and it should also be listed under 'System type'.
