adding video clips to videowave production

Question

Many times I have made some excellent slide shows in videowave and have used both still pictures and video clips from my panasonic FZ18 camera.

Now it will not accept the camera video clips but have no trouble in loading the still photographs.

Everything works perfect except that I can't include the cameras video clips any more.

I use Vista ultimate with Roxio easy media creator 9 suite.

Can't think that I do anything different than I have always done.

Any help is appreciated.

Jim

Just to make sure, are you using the Firewire port (AV), the USB post, or just inserting the memory card and copying the video? What format are you capturing the video to if you are using the firwire cable. The USB should not work.

 

I saw that the video format is Quicktime m-jpeg. Originally, VideoWave did not support m-jpeg and I tried some of them and they didn't work in Video Wave. I know one other person who can get m-jpeg to work so it might be a hit or miss situation.

 

Is there anything different that you can think of with these videos?

 

The kb article on EMC 9 says that format is not supported so...

 

The following are formats supported in Roxio Easy Media Creator Suite 9.

 

Input formats:

 

Video: AVI, DV, HD-V, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MPEG2-HD, IFO/VOB, DivX, DivX HD, XviD, DVR-MS, TiVo, ASF, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, 3GP, MPEG2 Transport Stream, H.264, OpenDVD

Thanks for that information. I use a card reader and move the clips from the card on to computer.

The icon is quick time movie .MOV

I also use a canon supershot camera and those icons are marked MVI. These are accepted in videowave no problem so I guess my only way out is to use the Canon for movie clips.

Many thanks for helping me. Very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Jim

You should be able to capture the video from the FZ18 via the AV terminal using a Firewire connection. You will have to buy a wire. Look at that the number of pins on your computer (4 or 6) and the number of pins on the camera. Are you sure one didn't come with the FZ18?

 

Once you connect via the Firewire, you should be able to import the videos to you computer via Media Import as an AVI or a mpg2 file..

Hi Steve,

Only two cables came with camera. One connects camera to USB on computer and transfers all pictures and video clips in exactly the same format as the card reader does.

Second cable connects camera to TV.

I found a converter program on line that quite easily converts the MOV file to AVI so I tried it and it works perfect and Vieowave will accept them with no problem.

Only snag is that the converter program costs a yearly fee and I only use it about twice a year.

The free version that I tried has a watermark across the centre of the picture.

Would be pleased if anyone knows a cheap or free converter.

You've bee a good help to me and appreciate it.

Cheers,

Jim.

Try the free version of " Any Video Converter." It should work for you.

Downloaded "Any Video Converter" and it is a cracker.

It also joins several MP3 tracks together so that the music lasts the whole slide show production.

Many many thanks again. I am all set up now.

Regards,

Jim. :)
