VideoWave effects don't work

Question

Hi!

 

Whenever I try to put an effect onto/in a video, the effect doesn't work entirely. It often is jumpy, scratchy, skippy, doesn't cover the whole frame, and flashes on and off, frame to frame. This happens with mostly every effect in VideoWave, and happens on pre-existing videos with moving images (I haven't tried on still images).

 

In the following link, you can see what happened when I tried to manually increase the contrast and decrease the light in this pre-existing black and white video. I had to make the video black and white using Windows Movie Maker, because VideoWave messed it up too badly otherwise. Luckily, for this particular video, I wanted the strange, eerie look of a scratchy, old video... the flashing dark, contrasted frames. Originally, though, I wanted that dark, contrasted look to cover the entire frame, through the whole video. But like I said, I ended up liking the flashing better, but only for this one video (because the desired effect was 'eerie').

 

 

Can anyone help me fix this? :( I really need a reliable editor!

 

 

Thank you all so much!!

On the websites for the maker of your video card/chip. Like Nvidia, ATI, Intel, etc...

 

What video card/chip do you have?

 

I believe it's Intel. If you have a link to the site where I could download the latest update from them (I'm afraid I'd download the wrong thing if I tried looking for it myself), I'd be eternally grateful!

 

 

Downloading it right now. Thank you soo much!!!

If you look in the Device Manager under Display, tells what it lists as your video card.

 

Sorry to be so dumb again, but I know little about the inner workings of my computer. Can you tell me how to open my Device Manager? Sorry!

Whoops, sorry. Just found it.

 

It says: "Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family."

 

What does that mean... and did it help you understand what's going on with my VideoWave issues? lol I hope it means something to you!

It means that you have a Laptop with an on-board video chip. In many cases the video chips are not able to handle some of the more advanced "video functions, eg. 3D transitions will not run properly.

 

One thing you can try is in Videowave: click on Tools, then Options and the set the render option to software if currently set to hardware. See if there is any difference in the output.

 

What effect and/or transitions are you applying to your source video? Give the exact name please.

Changing from 'Hardware' to 'Software' literally made all the difference in every setting that was messed up before!! Thank you so much!!! I really can't thank you enough. I am forever grateful!!! :D

That means that your laptop is not able to process all transitions/effects especially any 3D related.

Ugh. #$^@. Oh well. Thank you though!!

 

Yep, my Gateway has a similar Intel chip. Definitely should stay on 'software' render. None of the 3D transitions/effects will be available, but doesn't matter since the video chip can't handle it anyway.

 

:( Hmm, that's sad. Oh well. Thank you though for all the help!!
