Encoding Issue (Video Encoding as white in Video Wave & My DVD)

 Share

Question

I am trying to output my productions to either MyDVD or MPEG Best DVD from video wave.

 

1. The videos are encoding in solid white in both My DVD and video wave. Photos and audio are fine.

2. I have tried the production as well as random new ones on both my laptop and my desktop - both with different chipsets and video cards.

3. The issue is with the encoding process not the medium in which they are encoding to.

4. I have also attempted to create a folder set as well. (Encoding process encodes video as white)

5. The video files I am encoding are .wmv format (These are supported are they not)?

6. The project plays fine in video wave.

 

System 1

Nvidia Gforce 9800GTX+

Nvidia 8800GTX (Set as Physics Processor)

Intel QX9650 Processor

4 WD Caviar Black 1 TB Drives

Asus P5k-VM Motherboard

8GB DDR Corsair Dominator

Windows 7 64bit

Roxio Creator 2010 SP1

 

System 2

Dell Latitude E4300

8GB DDR3 Ram

SP9400 Processor

Intel GM45 Chipset

Win 7 64bit

Roxio Creator 2010 SP1

Might be that same video driver issue that others have. If you updated to the latest, go back to an earlier one. Search for your video card on this site to find out more.

 

Unfortunately I have searched the sites for both video card issues and did not return any sufficient results. (Always possible to miss something so please let me know if I did). I have also tried the lates driver on the desktop and the 2 previous releases with no avail as this has been a prevalent suggestion in the forum topics. The likelyhood of the video driver being the cause is minimal(Edit - Actually larger than I thought) I believe as I have an Intel on the laptop and Nvidia opn the desktop. I also just tried the same procedure on my friends Dell Ins 1521 and it has the same issue.

 

Also I forgot to include that I am using 7 Ultimate on both systems.

The likelihood of it being a Video Card issue is about 110%!!! :lol:

 

I am a little confused with your Process…

 

You say they play OK in VideoWave.

 

So when you go to MyDVD are you using an outputted file from VW or are you using a VW Project file?

 

For a test, set Tools – Options – Render to Software.

 

Load a file into VideoWave and Export As and pick something nice in the mpeg2 group.

 

Play the new file.

If I could hug you I would. The software render seems to work however (On the Laptop - Desktop will test tonight.) it is extremely choppy.

 

Then end product quality is far less than the original file. Suggestions here?

 

On the other note looking at the video cards do you have suggestions as to what settings may be the cause of the issue? Encoding Via software is extremely time consuming but tolerable if necessary.

 

P.S. are helping a family X-Mas Video in a huge way.

In reply to your original questions:

1: The project will play in Video Wave (While editing and creating the project)

2: I tried to use the VW project in My DVD and during burn process it encodes as white (Videos Only) and am unable to export to a file such as MPEG-2 from VW as it encodes the video in white while using hardware render.

3: The test you suggested using software render was succesful however end quality was less than original file after expoting to same specs. Best DVD MPEG-2.

 

I still need some help trying to track down the culprit of the issue though.

BTW your quick replies have been much appreciated.

Hold the hugs at bit longer…

 

Next question about the 'jerky' outputs. Is it possible that your PC cannot process them fast enough?

 

You have been silent regarding the source of the files???

 

There should be a setting in there "Same as original" that will take the guesswork out of it.

 

The processor on the laptop is a SP9400. A descent laptop processor but im sure the desktop QX9650 will do better. The question I have here is that whether or not render via software or hardware will impact the quality of the videos and pictures. Speaking of which -

 

The pictures that are being used are 1600*1200.

The video files all in in a wmv format with the quality of 720*480 - DR @ 4000kbps - Total BR 4128kbps - 29 FPS - Audio 128kbps 2 channel stereo 48khz.

 

- I tried working with driver a new driver from intel which hosed me over for a few but i am back up now. there a few settings that I question and maybe you have some input here

- Under 3D Options:

Texture Quality - "Balanced" (Performance or Quality Optional)

Anisotropic Filtering - "App Setting" (2 ~ 16 Available)

Vertex Processing - "Default Setting" (Application Setting and Enable Software Processing Available)

Vertical Sync - "On" - (Application Setting Available)

Under Media:

Color enhancement - I can Override App and go manual (Unchecked)

Image Enhancement - I can Override App and go manual (Unchecked)

Image Scaling - Letterbox To Widescreen Scaling (Unchecked) - Tried Both No Change -

 

I'm going nutz here :D

Chip numbers don't really tell me anything :huh: Cores & speeds tell more.

 

For example, Celeron's with great speed numbers are still not Pentinums and don't cut the mustard.

 

Software quality will be the same, time will be where the difference is. Software Render taking longer

 

DVD output will be 720 X 480. Nothing will change that!

 

Your WMV files are pretty low quality… 4mbps is about 1/2 of MyDVD Best setting. I can be set to 9mbps but I don't see much difference.

 

These things are not causing the problems, just some things I noted when you supplied the details.

Fair Enough. The processor is the SP9400 – Dual Core 2.4 GHz, 25W, 6 MB Cache, 1067 FSB with 8GB DDR3 1067. For video we talking the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 but if I am going to use software rendering this really doesnt effect things.

 

I converted to a High Def format and the result was beter. My biggest complaint about quality is the visible presence of the interlacing which i dont see in the original videos. I have yet to push through MyDVD which I will do at home. I have a 2 hour project with menus and all the works that rebuilding before christmas would not be an option.

 

In your opinion how is the capability of the laptops specs to handle the software rendering and ability to get this project completed. I know the video card issues are still unresolved but I can just run the encoding porcess at night to get around time.

 

PS. Thanks 4 the help.

Well you videos were poor quality to start with. You cannot up-render video, you get artifacts like you are seeing when you do…

 

The chip will be great, but even with Software Render your Graphics Accelerator will be an anchor!

 

The Dell 530 I have listed was like that. It has a chipset for a graphics card and I found I could not get it to work with all video and stills! Had to install a real graphics card.

 

Does you lap play Blu-ray???

Unfortunatley it was not an option due to the form factor of the chasis; a video card was not available to push the high def. It does however play the AVCHD files from the new camera without any hesitation. Unfortunatley all the files I am working with are from the old one. Thanks for all the help. I can at least get the project finished for the holidays.
