Narration Distorted

Question

I am hoping someone can help me troubleshoot my distortion problems. I am getting distortion on most of my narration as well as some of the added background audio in my project. :( I am using Creator 2009/mydvd to make a movie comprised of photos and video clips that are avi files. I have my quality setting on HQ and at first had project settings at "normalize audio levels" and thought that may be the problem, but I burned a test dvd without enabling that and same problem. The distortion does not appear when I preview my project in Roxio - in fact it sounds great! It only occurs on the burned dvd. :unsure: I have my audio format set to dolby digital 384kb/s and after I get done writing this will try a test dvd with LPCM selected to see if that changes anything. I have spent weeks on this project and am really hoping that someone out there has some helpful feedback! :blink: Thanks in advance!

1) Turn down audio acceleration using Windows>Start>Run>type in dxdiag>OK>audio/sound tab.

2) Burn your video to an ISO (image file) from My DVD uncheck other options. Copy the ISO file to your disc using Creator Classic or Video Copy and Convert.

I follow some of what you are saying to do, but if you don't mind can you dumb it down just a little more please. :unsure:

 

I don't see "Run" in my start up can I type dxdiag>OK>audio/sound tab into windows explorer? (I am using Windows Vista 64 if that makes a difference).

 

Then if I burn the project to an ISO and copy and convert will all of the menus still function? I have multiple menus and segments within the one dvd project. Also, what should my project settings be. I tried to add a screen shot of my current project settings, but was not able to paste it into this window.

 

Thanks for the response :)

Yes, sorry. I posted directions for XP. I'm not sure how to do it in Vista or if Vista allow you to do it. Perhaps someone will come by and help or perhaps a Visit to Microsoft?

 

Edit: I just looked and Vista doesn't allow you to do that. Read this and try at your own peril. Perhaps there is something else here. Try the ISO file first.

 

Yes, the ISO file will be an exact image of what will be burned to the disc so all the menus, chapters, ect. will be the just as if you burned directly to a disc. USe best quality to burn the project to the ISO file.

 

Screen shots are limited to those that are granted the privilege by Roxio.

Thank you for the response. I am also wondering now if perhaps once I have enabled "normalize audio levels" if it cannot be undone. I was assuming that it was a function that took place in the burn process, but now am thinking that it may still be enabled even though I have unchecked the box. The sound alterations you were refering to on my computer - does that just reduce the input levels via the computer? Or something else?

 

again thanks for the suggestions. :) I will take any help I can get to try to troubleshoot this darn project!!!
