Slideshow Music?

Question

Hey all,

I used EMC9 to make my photo slideshows in video Wave. Now in 10 when I make a slideshow I'm having trouble with the audio (music) I add to my production. I usually would add a song then add another and it would ask (to replace or add at end) now I just get a prompt to select where to put audio, music track or somewhere else..... all I want to do is add a few songs to my show and fit it to the audio...I dont seem to see where that option is either.

 

I'm also still having the prob I had with 9. The more complicated trasitions creat a jitter to the image at the beggining and end. I asked about this months ago for 9 and nobody was sure except that they thought it was my vidoe card which is fairly new..

 

I'm not sure if I'm gonna stick with Roxio for slideshows. I've been having to many glitches and problems.

 

I've tried the demo of Pro Show Gold and it seems to work nice and smooth and very user friendly. When I use the animated trasisions on that program there is no jittering!!

 

Thanks in advance!

You get slightly different choices when adding audio in VW, depending on what is selected. Select the music track you want to replace (click on it in the timeline) and the option to replace it should be available. It works the same way in 10 as 9, if I remember correctly.

Try setting rendering to software, this may help.

ProShow Gold is a good program, but doesn't have the various capabilities of EMC.

No idea what program you are/were using??? Saying you have 9 or 10 is about as specific as asking if someone has a part for a General Motors car…

 

I may be able to off one thing. If you are not using VideoWave, you are not using the right program.

OK, Thought I Explained it. I said at beginning "I use VideoWave in EMC9 and now 10"

Anyways yes it's VideoWave 10. I'm used to VidoeWave 9 but 10 is a bit diffierent, at least for adding consecutive songs.

Put the vertical cursor at the end of the first music track (or near it); the next piece of music will add there you select to add it to thew music track.

 

If you have never played with two audio tracks before, consider using them with fade in/out. It makes the music much more interesting.

 

Watch this.

 

Same answer now for the jitter. Update your video drivers (even a new card will probably have outdated drivers). Set the card to best performance and set both anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing to software or program controlled. When you are in Video Wave, go to the top menu, select tools, options and then put a dot to where it isn't. If it is near software, try hardware or vice versa.

In VideoWave, go to Tools > Options > Change "Render using" from Hardware to Software. This may or may not help but is worth a try. Also try sknis' additional suggestions.

 

In that ProShow Gold is great for making slideshows, nothing is missing. EMC, in addition to creating slideshows, also contains other various programs and utilities related to media creation, including video, photo, and audio, etc.

Thanks it worked. I switched the dot and there was no more jitter!!!.

Now I have another prob.....after burning the DVD I had some Black segments,,,some of the pic were not showing up they were only a black square????could this be cause I swithed the rendering or do I have some hidden tracks or pics I dont know about? I'm even more frustrated now!!!!!

 

Thanks, BILL

Usually those black segments / squares are video driver issues. You followed Sknis' suggestion and updated yours? Have you outputted your production in Videowave as a Video File > MPEG 2 for Best Quality? How does it look?

This has never happened to me before on the many slideshows I've made. Could this be cause I followed the idea ...went to options and changed the rendering from hardware to software??? This stopped the jittering between transitions but maybe it causes the black squares :glare:

 

Maybe I have to choose: Jittering transitions or black squares??? That sucks :angry2:

It is a function of your video card/chip. What do you have? Usually you can fix the shift by trying both hardware and software render.

 

In Video Wave or MyDVD, go to the top menu and select tools, options. Look at he dot. There will be one next to hardware OR near software. Change it to the other to see if that helps.

 

Make sure that you have your video card driver up to date and that it is set to best performance rather than best appearance. Most people get better results with software render but I get better results and no jump if I use hardware. (My video card spec in my signature)

 

Hi, I was having the same prob. I did that and it worked great. But now I'm getting black squares(or blank) where a picture used to be. This has never happened before, could it be becasue i did the (hardware/ software) rendering switch???

 

Thanks, BILL

No, changing the rendering is not causing the black image file.

 

If the back image is always the same one, there is something that the program doesn't like about it. It could be format, resolution or other. In Video Wave, double click on that image and when the photo editor opens, do something small, apply a blur or auto fix or the like. Try again.

 

If the black image is in different places, you are probably trying to encode and burn at the same time. Your computer is not up to it. From MyDVD, when you go to burn, select to create an ISO file. Once that encodes, copy the ISO to a blank DVD using Creator Classic or Video Copy and Convert.

 

A couple of things, VLC (free player) will allow you to view the ISO file on your computer so you don't have to burn. If there are black panels, then perhaps the first suggestion is more correct. If there are no black panels in VLC but there are on the finished disc, get rid of those Memorex or store brand discs and get some good ones like Verbatim.
