Does anyone know how to apply a mixture of transitions to a project made in the Video Wave 8 section. Also can you just put one or two transitions into still images.

Thank you.

Judy

 

The fun answer is yes, yes. :)

 

I storyline view.

 

I'm sure the answer you are looking for is you can apply random transitions to a project by clicking on the icon two to the left of the speaker icon and scrolling down to pot luck. It will try to use as many of the 245 transitions as there are room for. You can also select a more limited set of transitions by selecting something like 'fades" or "3D".

 

You can drag transitions from the effects selector/transitions to the little boxes (transition blocks) between the "blocks" of your project. Once you have done that, you can right click on the transition and then apply transition to all. Note that you can change the length of the transition by right clicking on the transition and adjusting the duration. Do this before you apply to all. You can then go back and apply the other transitions where you want them.

Thank you for your help, but how I do select different transitions all at one time, like using one click of a button. Or is this not available in ECM8, only in the 6 version. Also I am burning this still picture audio onto d.v.d., is this possible using transitions and music, or just on a c.d.?

You have me totally confused. :)

I'm not sure how V6 worked. What did you do -- select a lot of different transitions and then drag them to the project? The three ways I told you about are the three I'm familiar with. I don't know of a fourth. When you say "still picture audio" do you mean "slide show with audio" ? You can burn it to DVD or CD depending on your need by opening MyDVD and clicking on file new and selecting the type of project. As long as you have a DVD burner, you can burn to a DVD.

Hi,

 

It works doing it the way you said, but it takes a lot of time doing it by single transitions. What I would like to do is have a bunch of them selected at the same time and then click a button and they are all in my video. Yes, I am making a slide show with audio, it is my sister-in-law's wedding. ONce I am finished I will burn into a d.v.d., and hopefully it will work in my d.v.d player, as well as my computer. I just wanted to confirm well I am talking to you. You have to copy music from a c.d. and save to hard drive first, before you can transfer it onto you audio on Video Wave 8, is this correct. Or can I just rip a song out of a c.d. onto my audio in Video Wave 8.

 

When I go into software upgrades and go to EM8, it shows EM8.05 to download. Have you downloaded this, and you have no problems. As my program is EM8.

 

I really appreciate you trying to help me with this. I am just about ready to delete this EM8 from my computer. I was trying to get onto the online chat, but cannot find it, I thought I seen it.

Judy - are you talking about transition themes? You can select a transition them within teh slide wizard and inside Videowave.

 

Hi,

 

I know I can select transitions and drag them where I want them, but I am trying to find the place or button to select different transitions, but have them apply onto my Video Wave 8 all at the same time, instead of doing one at a time. I also know I can select Transition Themes, but the one theme, is all the same transitions, not any different. Meaning I am doing a wedding video, and would like hearts, cirlcles, squares, fade in and fade outs, but all at the same time to put them on my video, not one by one. It takes a long time to do that. I am used to using Roxio Easy CD and Dv.d. Creator 6, and it has it on that one. But their were a lot of other problems with that version, so I hope I am not going to run into problems with this EMC8.

 

Thank you.

Have you tried the Wedding transition theme in the slideshow wizard? The wizard is available in Videowave and MyDVD 8.

 

You can skip teh wizard and use transition themes manually and then select RANDOM which will use all 245 transitions randomly.

 

 

Manul selection of transition themes:

In Videowave, right click on transition or image. Select 'Apply Transition Theme'.

Last on the list is 'Potluck' which randomly selects from all transitions available.

Hello,

 

Thank you, thank you!!! See I started in the Video Wave 8, but at the top of the screen along the side. It said "add photo/video", this is where I transferred my pictures from my harddrive in this section. Next line said add "background Audio", then "add text effect", etc. until it said add transitions. But here it does not show wedding themes, also does not show pot luck. Their was someone esle on here that kept telling this too, but it works better when you sent me picture of what I was doing. On the next section on the left hand side still, it says "new slideshow", which I had already had my slideshow made. I will have to try this on next production. I am keeping all my answers to my questions from everyone of you, so I can read up on them and not get mixed again, and again. After you are finished with the production, except for chapters, etc. to you send it to "MYDVD". HOpefully this is whre I Make a Title to my production, and then burn it. Crosslng my fingers it works on my d.v.d. player, as I am making this into a d.v.d. But then of course, the question will be will it work in other d.v.d players.

Actually, MyDVD is also where you mark the chapters. Think of it as Videowave is for 'editing' where you add images and video, add transitions, effects and text. MyDVD is for making the DVD where you design the menu, mark chapters and then burn. You have three burning options: directly to disc, to ISO file and to a video_ts folder. I like burning to a video folder so I can play it back using CinePlayer or other DVD software. This way I can test the menus to make sure they work the way I wanted, The colors I've chosen, etc.

 

PS Wedding and Potluck are transition 'themes' and are only available when you right click and choose add transition theme.
