Emc Version 9

Question

Last night, I started a new movie in VideoWave. But I had difficulty inserting transitions without the program crashing and prompting me to send error messages to Microsoft. While this didn't happen each and every time I inserted a transition, it did occur about 10 times or more, aborting my efforts to work on my project. I've recently added a second hard drive to my computer, and increased my memory ... so I am surprised at this turn of events. Any suggestions?

Hard to tell what could be causing the problem but I'd start with regular defrags of the hard drives. If it's the transitions causing the crashes, make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card as well as the last version of DirectX.

Also, it's possible your video card can't handle it - you didn'tr say what your graphics were and those are just as important as CPU and RAM for rendering

Thank you both for responding.

 

I have a Nvidia GForceFX5200 video card. I've updated the drivers. And also updated the drivers for DirectX.

 

Unfortunately, as of this evening, I now can't add any transitions at all without Roxio crashing.

 

Here is the application error from eventvwr. I have no idea what this means.

 

 

Faulting application videowave9.exe, version 9.0.2.16, faulting module vuisettings.dll, version 9.0.2.16, fault address 0x0012c266.

Thank you very much for this. I'll follow up with this lead and post any results. I'm good at making the programs work. But not experienced at all with what goes on behind the scenes. I therefore much appreciate your response and suggestions. I've a Roxio DVD project for Christmas on the go for my family. With only days to go to Christmas .... now having a crippled program ... and having lost a week of valuable production time ... to say I'm anxious is an understatement.

As of Sunday morning, I've scanned my computer with Spybot, Malware, and a vundo removal tool by Symantec. No vundo was detected. I also did a scan using Sypware Doctor and while 3 threats and 11 infections (low grade) were detected, removing them has done little to improve my performance.

 

While I was able to work yesterday for about 1/2 hour in Videowave successfully (holding my breath most of the time), the program then starting crasing with each insertion of a transition.

 

Upon looking at eventvwr, the same error message appears in the application log as noted my previous post.

 

Interestingly, of all the transition selections initially provided with EMC 9, I can now only see 1/2 of them in the Transition folder. The other half have disappeared from view.

 

In my Storyboard itself ... in the transition thumbnails between slides ... a faint version of the missing transition is showing. But becase it's not recognized, the program is defaulting to a simple dissolve in its place.

 

I'm not sure is a video card has anything to do with any of this, but it's the only thing I now know to investigate further. I currently have a GeForce FX 5200 video card.

That video card is an old low end video card. Check NVidia's website to see if there is an updated driver for it.

Thanks for your reply. And yes, I did download the latest drivers. Just double-checked again and there is nothing more to download.

 

What would be your recommendation for an appropriate graphics card that will handle both my Photoshop projects, and my Roxio DVD production development ... as I'm unclear what specifications one uses in assessing which graphics card to purchase.

 

Thanks very much in advance for any recommendations to consider.

any of the mid-range graphics cvards will do what you want - it doesn't have to be a high end one (basically any PCIe 16x one does - I ran everything on an old ATI X300 with 256 MB and had no problems (only upgraded because the grandkids couldn't play their latest games :lol: )

If your computer has an AGP slot, then I would go with this ATI video card:

There is nothing wrong with your video card and it should handle the graphics without any problems; I was using the same one for years until it failed. Kust have not bothered replacing it with another card and am using the on-board video which works well enough.
