Can't edit video in VW

Question

I would like to use Videowave, not MyDVD, because I want to include pictures as well as video and I don't want chapters. I also don't want to use Cinemagic as I need the native audio. So here is my dilemma. I can get the full video into the first box in the story line of the production editor in VW. What I would like to do is run the video for a couple of minutes then move the rest of the unseen part to box 2 on the story line. I would like to keep on doing this to box 3, then box 4 until the end of the video. At that point I would like to delete some of the boxes and move others around. Finally I'd like to put in some pictures. Can I do this in VW or do I have to work in the video somewhere else first. Thanks. Joe

yes, you should be able to do that easily. Each 'box' in Story Line mode represents a 'clip'. When you add a still image, then it would be considered as one clip. I'm not sure what you mean by:

then move the rest of the unseen part to box 2 on the story line.
Try to explain that better. Sometimes it is much easier to work in Timeline mode. That mode gives you a linear view for the entire video. Edited by ggrussell

If I understand correctly ..Simply switch to the timeline view in Videowave and create splits at the various point you want. That will create the "boxes" (ie. panels) you are talking about

Many thanks for your comments. In the mean time Roxio gave me a link to a Pdf presentation called 'Produce vacation videos in minutes with Roxio VideoWave'. That solved many of my problems. What I hadn't done was to dock the Media Selector and the Effect selector and was trying to manage the scene detection in the production area. So many thanks for you help and I've now just produced my first dvd. I'm in the middle of trying to produce another but already things are not running smoothly. I may need to come back for more help. Thanks again. Joe
