Videowave 8 Will Not Let Me Add Clips


ozzello

Question

The program is defaulting to software, I believe that's because I had to set hardware acceleration on the video card to 1 notch above min in order to solve the audio/video sync problems with Videowave7. I've forced the setting to Hardware and tried adding that was as well with the same results. I got the .avi files from Capture7 and Capture8. The Capture8 was interesting since it didn't have the live window showing the video while it captured while Capture7 does. I'm not running any other programs with the exception of my McAfee VirusScan v7. I do disable the on-access scan function while trying to edit the video. VM is set to twice the real RAM. Computer is set for best performance. IE6 is installed but not sure which patch level, I'm not at the machine right now, I'm at work. I think the dual layer was in 7.5 so I had to upgrade either way and chose 8, I think it was a mistake.

Does the fact that all the functions except Video work imply a video card issue?

Yes-but. You have a completely different computer than the original poster. Better that you create a new thread. In the meantime, go to VideoWave, tools/options. Run the test. Does the program default to hardware or software?. Set the program to software and try to add the files using either method. Are you able to do this? What other programs do you have open when you are doing the video? Make sure you have set the virtual memory to 1 1/2 times your actual memory and that you have set your computer (XP) to run with the best performance; not best appearance. Where did you get the AVI files?

 

If I remember, EMC 7 did have double layer burning capabilities in one of the updates. You may want to keep or re-install V7 on your computer and use it for video (in the worst case scenario). Many people like it better that the video properties in V8. Do you have IE 6 on your computer?

I'm getting the same exact issue. If I Add Photo/Video from the menu it crashes with the same error

code you get. If I use the Add Content

pane from the left hand side it just hangs for a bit and then comes back with nothing happening. If I open

the Media Selector I can see my .avi files and it will let me drag and drop them into the scenes but after

a few seconds of crunching it completes and there is nothing in the scene. I've got an open Web Ticket

for this but Roxio hasn't updated it since Sunday night so I'm getting pretty frustrated. After reading all

the posts here I've updated to the latest version of DirectX and upated my video card drivers to the latest

versions. I've reinstalled twice with no change in behavior. The audio functions and data functions in EMC8

are all working fine, it's just video that's causing me pain. EMC7 on the same machine works fine. I wanted

the dual layer capability which is why I went with EMC8.

I checked for the latest version of IE6 and Media Player10 and I had those. Windows update claimed to have a more recent video driver than the new one I installed so I installed that. I got stuck in a 640x480 mode with 4 bit color and could not get out so I rolled back the driver. I then shifted the hardware acceleration on the card back to full and everything now works! I have yet to determine if I get the audio/video sync problems that I had in Videowave7 with the hardware acceleration turned up that high. Thanks for the good questions which led me to the solution. Tech support has yet to respond to me web ticket from 3/26 by the way.

NEVER install something that you know is older. Microsoft doesn't always have the latest drivers. This happens alot with my nVidia video card. nVidia does have Microsoft certified drivers, but Microsoft's update site may not have the latest drivers.

I was having the same problem. I had previously adjusted my hardware acceleration to the minimum to facilitate output of video, but then VW 8 would not allow me to add anything to new productions.

 

After resetting my hardware acceleration to the maximum, it ran fine. I plan to keep it in the maximum position while editing and then try switching it back to the minimum setting when outputting/burning.
