Native Audio Problem


brewspecial

Question

I have made a movie where I have muted / mixed /used Native Audio.

All is fine and is OK when previewed in MY DVD.

However, once on disc three of the clips are totally silent. They have not been muted, and other clips using native audio only are fine.

Can anyone offer a suggestion on why this has happened.

If not I would like to separate the audio from the original clips and bring them back to the production on the Music Track. How do I separate the Audio ?

That's a pretty open ended question. The simplest answer is to (since the MyDVD preview is OK) encode to an ISO file and not directly to a disc. Once the ISO file is complete, use Creator Classic or Video Copy and Convert to copy the ISO file to a disc.

 

This separate the encoding from the burning and often cures audio and visual problems caused by an overworked computer.

 

Oh, by the way, clear the proxy files. When you do a lot of editing, sometimes the proxy (pre-staged) files are not overwritten for the editing being done. Clearing the proxy files allows them to immediately be rebuilt with only the last edits pre-staged. That's not a very technical explanation but it is good for general discussion. I hope you are not one of those who needs a lot of proof and explanation of exactly why! :rolleyes:

Hello Houston

Thanks for taking time to help.

I always save as ISO File, and did so in this case.

Re Proxy Files - no I don't need to understand why things work, but how to do them !

How and when do I clear them? Is it too late to clear them in the movie I have made ?

I have found out how to remove audio from original clips so can, hopefilly finish my movie using them, but would prefer an easier method.

Thanks again

In Video Wave, or My DVD, go to the top menu and select tools, options. You will see the clean proxy files button there. You cannot clean the proxy files on a finished production.

 

Proxy files (non-technical description) are the pre-staged files that the program uses to open a project quicker when it is being worked on. Sometimes, after a lot of editing, the files are not properly updated. Sometimes this adds ghost audio or images in the final edit.

 

If you clear the proxy files, they are immediately rebuilt with only the latest information/files. Usually the proxy files are cleared when you close a production and shut down VideoWave or My DVD. It is possible that they did not clean and rebuild properly in your production.

 

Of course this is only one possible cause to the problem you are having.

Hello Houston

Thanks for this.

I got round the problem by separating audio etc.

Will have to see what happens next time
