Videowave And My Dvd


Bete

Question

I will have to give up on Roxio if I can't get through this issue. I won't buy version 10 or any other version if I can't get this to work in 9. I'm sorry for the vent, but I've exhausted all my avenues, here. I've spent too much time on this already. All of you are my last hope. I have worked with Videowave; since, it's creation. I love this program, but I'm at a loss, now.

 

I have a Canon HV20 hi def camcorder. I want to get Videowave to output my production in high definition as a video file, at least 1440 X 1080 resolution. I have captured HD video in Windows Movie Maker (as 1072, here), in Roxio 9.1, and Magix 12. I did it for the same video clip in each one of these programs. All these programs capture my HD camera video without issue as HD. When I put these same files in the program, Videowave and I've tried all the formats I can't get the output as to recognize the high defintion of these files. When the pop up screen called Make Movie appears in the output as menu of Videowave it will only let me do it in the lower resolutions for my choices most of the time. I'm trying to do a video file. Here's the rub; every now and then; maybe, one out of 25 tries I can get it to happen correctly and I can pick high resolution as 1080 X whatever for my choice in the video file quality section of Make Movie in Videowave. I swear to you I'm not doing it any different, but I'm getting different results on this and more bad than good results. I've tried this in Vista and XP. I didn't buy a hi def camcorder to get low resolution DVDs as a final result.

 

I did this in My DVD, too with the same crazy results. Once in a while it will give me the hi def choices for output as 1080, but most of the time it won't.

 

If there's a tutorial on this, I would love the link. My Roxio 9 soft cover book instructions don't even come close on what's what, here. I've been through the help menus in videowave and make movie in videowave.

 

It shouldn't be this hard. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but if I can't figure it out I will have to go to another option other than Roxio. Please help.

Bete,

 

it won't happen unless you have a HD or Blu-ray burner. You need to get some basic working knowledge about video formats. You can't always do what you want, you have to follow DVD, HD, and Blu-ray, video standards!

I must not be explaining this very well. I just want to access the high quality resolution video formats in Make Movie in Videowave. As an example, WMV 9 will do this for me in 1440 X 1080 in Videowave's Movie Maker. I just can't get it as a choice now when I'm choosing video quality in movie maker. That's what I want to do. It's that simple and I'm not able to do it with Videowave at this moment. I'm not making a DVD. I have archival high resolution video clips from a few months back when I first got the camcorder and at that time I was able to access the high resolution in Movie Maker in Videowave. I've done it. For some reason it worked for me in the past, but I can't do it, now with this same camera producing the same quality. I can put my clip in Video wave and it's the higher resolution, but I can't do the same in Movie Maker which is part of Videowave. There must be a step I'm not doing the same and this is what I'm asking for help on. I know this can be done; I've done it. I'm just not getting my point across evidently, but I'll keep trying and maybe the geek in you will be able to help me. TIA.

 

I want to repeat, I'm not trying to make a DVD.

Did you set your production as New/Widescreen(16:9). That is the only way you can get the "higher resolutions" to appear. BTW, there is no such thing as a "Movie Maker" in Videowave, I believe you are referring to the "Output As" option which opens the "Make Movie" window.

Thank you; thank-you. You have redeemed my faith in Roxio. Now, I'll get Vers. 10.

1440 X 1080 is not HD it's just higher resolution. Regular DVD is 720 x 480 UDF 1.02! Do you have a HD or Blu-ray burner? If not where and how would you output it to disc?

I'm sorry; I guess I want higher resolution then and not a HD DVD. I just can't get it to happen. The captured video file is higher resolution, but I can't get it recognized for Videowave in Movie Maker to do it there like I want to do.

 

I still need help if anyone knows how to resolve this issue.
