Song Fades In VideoWave


metroeditor

Question

Hi,

 

I have completed a project in VideoWave with 15 song segments. I manipulate the little green dots on the music bar to make fade outs and ins as one song joins another.

 

But when I burn the project, or save it, close it and reopen, the "dots" on the fade out keep getting followed by a "dot" that spikes up.

 

So when you play the video, you get a spike in noise before the next song fades in.

 

This is very confusing. It does it on 80 percent of the songs, but not all, and always on the fade out. The fade-ins behave themselves nicely.

 

Thoughts?

I'm seeing the exact same behaviour. I've seen it on both native audio tracks, as well as with music tracks (mp3s). Everything will look and act perfectly, until I try to re-open the project after saving it - then Videowave seems to put its default volume envelope node at the end of the audio track, in addition to nodes that I had previously created/moved.

Ive run into this a few times too. Try zooming in from the timeline view. You can usually see the "spiked" dot and pull it down, fixing the problem.

This seems to be a bug in the software, as I had major nightmares dealing with it for two presentations that I was working on.

 

The only solution that I found was to make all the audio adjustments (ie lower the dot at the end of the song) just before burning it to disk. In other words, I would open my project in Videowave, adjust the fade dots in all the songs, the click on the "send to my DVD" button (I think that's what it's called, not at home to check).

 

This will allow you to burn a DVD with the fades as they should be. Just remember that next time you open your project in Videowave, the fade dots will have spiked up again.

 

Hope this helps.

Yes. I run into this problem every time I create a presentation. It really is a pain and Roxio should fix this bug in the program. It is easily reproducible and happens all the time.

You responded to a 7 month old thread. It is doubtful that there will be a patch for EMC 8. I dumped EMC 8 and moved on to EMC 9.

Bruce is correct, it is best to start your own thread and also there probably won't be any updates to V8. What version of EMC 8 do you have -- the Suite or the Deluxe?

 

If you are not matching the image to the music, you might consider using Sound Editor to make a mix and use that in your project.
