black screens in slideshow using videowave


fastiggi2

Question

I am new to roxio. I have produced a slideshow using videowave, put in transitions and audio. It all looks fine on the preview, I burnt it on a dvd and watched it on the tv. When looking at it on the tv a few of the slides have a black screen between them, but all looks fine when I play in on the computer? Any suggestions?

This just happened to me as well. Two of my slides were just back screens.

 

Question, when you say it looks fine when you play it on the computer, you mean while in Videowave, correct?

 

My burned copy plays with the same blank screens no matter what player I put it in.

 

Now, I just replaced my video card, so I am not confident yet what I am about to say is true......

 

I originally created my presentation in videowave and then added it to MyDVD. I then edited a few slides while in MYDVD, instead of exiting MYDVD and opening Videowave to do the editing. I think this is why I had my problem. I since went back into videowave and made my changes and then re-added the videowave persentation to MyDVD.... burned a copy... and it was fine.

 

I need to play around a bit more as I still don't know if this was a fluke thing with a new video card, but I would recommend always exiting MYDVD and going into VideoWave seperately to do all your editing. Do not use "Edit Video" in MYDvD.

 

Hope this helps you with your problem.

Thanks for your post; I'm not sure why it happened that way but the original poster at least has something to try. :)

Thanks for these suggestions. I opened it again in videowave, made a few amendments and put it back into MYDVD, and burnt the disc again. It is fine now, so your theory may work or it could've just been 'one of those funny things'. Anyway I will also have to have a play around with this.

I also have the same issues I have created a slideshow in Video Wave that includes audio I then import the completed slideshow into MYDVD 8 and add a background and menu audio - no other changes or additions. The slideshow in MYDVD previews the entire length (47 minutes) with no audio or video problems. After burning the DVD I sometimes get audio skips and black 'spaces' between photos in the slideshow. I have recreated the slideshow several times with the same basic problems. also at the end of the slideshow there seems to be more frequest black spaces. I have tried just creating the ISO image with the same results.

Export your VideoWave presentation to an MPEG file and then attach the MPEG in MYDVD instead of the VideoWave project. This works for me and I haven't had the problem since.

Fix, repair, clean, or replace your set top player. If there were a problem with the disc, it would not play properly on your computer.

 

Next time, if you did not, from MyDVD, check the create image (iso) file and un-check all other options. Let the iso file complete and then copy that iso file to a DVD. This separation of creating the compliant file from the burning seems to , in many cases, create a more compatible disc. It is not required but does seem to be a best practice.

Well,

 

I just created a new project and this time I got around 30 blank screens in my presentation. I rebooted my machine and burned it again, and it was fine. Made some additional changes, burned again and I had a few slides that were black again. So, there must be some issue with my video card or the drivers I have.

 

The interesting thing is I have not seen these blank screens if I burn my videowave project to an MPEG-2 file and then attach it in MYDVD. Very strange.

maybe you should follow these steps for your slideshow... at least it looks like it produces more reliable results
