Video Distorted While Editing

Question

I just purchased Media Creator 10 so please forgive me if this is a repeat question. I tried to find it via search but had no luck. I am trying to import videos directly from my camera to MC10 but it says "no files found". My camera default file type is .MVI.

 

I've been able to upload videos that I've formatted as AVI from Windows Movie Maker and when they are in the video editor they are very distorted. If I save it it works fine as well as before it is in the Video Wave video editor.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Download and install the free Windows Media Player encoder (check version for whatever WMP you have installed) from here

 

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsme...er/default.mspx

 

This will let you convert the .mvi files to WMP format which will work

 

To convert to .avi, try the Stoik converter (free version) available here

So do I have to convert all of my files to one of those formats to use them on Roxio? Seems tedious. Why doesn't Roxio support that format?

In the early days of digital video, camcorder makers followed "Standards" so it was easy to support.

 

Today every maker is lazy and makes up their Standard for this Week and expects the world to hug and kiss them. They also usually include some custom software to make up for the non-standard file they are using this week.

 

But the CD & DVD Standards have never changed… Ask your camcorder maker why they use an non-standard format?

I've never even heard of .MVI extension until you posted it. Are you SURE that is the file extension and not part of the filename like Canon uses?

 

I found this in another forum: " it's a MJPG file(motion JPG), with a .avi extension. The movie did come from a still camera, as you said. I saw the "MVI" which turns out to be part of the name of the file..duh."

 

You never mentioned if the file came from a still camera or camcorder.

Sorry I didn't state that it was from a still camera. I'm using a canon powershot 850. MVI may just be the file extension but I thought that was also the file type.

 

Video wave should recognize that file type but the videos are just all distorted. Is there something I'm not doing correctly or do I just need to convert the videos as stated previously?

Do a google search on "mvi format" and you will may possibly see a solution. I believe the video has to be converted to a "standard" format but your Canon should supply that software.
