Bought & Installed Today, Now Divx Problems


hovhaness

Question

I installed EMC 10 suite & all is working well.

All but my DIVX encoding.

I basically only have used EMC to capture video through my leadtek pvr.

Then i use Winavi, through the DIVX panel, to re-encode from Mpeg 2,

or if more detailed editing was needed i would use simple windows movie maker & encode in WMV.

The older oem version I had was very simple & compatible in this way.

I could just capture & convert without issue.

 

I figured by adding the video wave, thus the suite, I could edit everything in Divx, eliminate a 2nd step & be a happy camper.

Ok so i open the video wave to create, then I select the output.

1st there's disappointment @ the very generic range of Divx encoding.

Ok well scrap that then I will just edit & save in Mpeg 2, then use winavi through the DIVX panel to encode @ the settings i prefer.

 

Ok all done.

I go to open the file & am met by a squelching sound for a split second, no picture, & then a slider that zooms through the time & then closes.

I try the same on WMP, MPC, & VLC players, same results.

 

I open sherlock to check my codecs.

No errors

I see both the generic DIVX codec & the Roxio Divx both functional.

 

Next I try the same with several combos using the ffdshow panel to AVI/Divx

Same results.

 

Ok well perhaps I can only use 1 of these & the other has to go.

I then try the same small test video with EMC, using the generic settings.

Same result.

 

Uninstall Divx, reinstall DIVX

Uninstall Winavi, reinstall winavi

Now to the DIVX control panel, & encode.

Now the file opens, & works perfectly.

 

Then I decide well i just won't use any DIVX settings on EMC.

Next i capture a nice long movie from VHS, encode in Mpeg2

close up roxio, then open winavi to encode in DIVX.

70 minutes later, go to open the file & there it is again that squelching sound, fast slider, no picture.

 

I only tell the story cause i know that detail is important lol

 

The question is I would like to remove the generic EMC divx codec completely from the suite.

Can I do this, is it wise, or have you another solution where they can co-exist?

Looks like you don't need EMC 10, or you aren't going to try it.

 

Both are encoding in DIVX now :lol:

So yes i'm definitely gonna have some fun with this new toy now.

The editing features are superb, & there's many options.

Although I cannot seem to find a simple fade to black or fade to white for transitions.

I will address this in the other section.

So now I can turn my Godfather boxed set VHS Epic into that DVD set that they never released.

:D

Fades are easy. Insert a colored panel between two segments and add a dissolve transition before the inserted panel. Adjust panel and transition duration for desired length

If only fading to black you don't need a dissolve transition after the black panel (unless you have more video after the panel and want a fade in from black)

 

Ahhhhhh. You are correct. I was thinking between clips and photos, because I worked on a production, for a few hours today, and I used the video clip/dissolves/blank screen/dissolves/video clip format quite a number of times.

 

My bad.
