Unable to create seamless video from DVD clips

Question

:angry: I have 5 dvds with many individual clips that I copied from my 80gb harddrive camcorder. On these dvds, there is a slight pause in between individual clips but the dvds play from start to finish. What I have spent the last 3-5 days trying to do was copy the individual dvds to Creator 2010 and make a new dvd that is seamless like a regular movie. I have wasted 10+ dvds attempting to do this and I managed to finiish two. However, when I put them in my dvd player, it said this dvd is not playable and the other stopped after about 1 minute into the dvd and I couldn't get it to advance, retreate, step or anything even if I removed it and reinserted it, same result. I have encountered many, many error codes regardless of which section of 2010 I used and I have used virtually everyone. Also, I cannot believe the slowness of copying and burning but I guess I have to attribute that to my computer which has only 1GB memory. If I can't accomplish what I have been trying, I will just uninstall the program and either give it away or trash it. As far as I'm concerned it has been a waste of my money and time.

Don't you think it might be time to buy 1, DVD RW for testing…

 

I don't completely understand your problem. I get the pause but without any details on what programs you are using and how these clips are being used, no guesses can be made.

 

Also media can come into play here. For the most part, if it doesn't say Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden on it, it is not worth bringing home.

Where do you play these 5 DVDs and see the pauses. You cannot of course simply copy video clips to a DVD and expect to have created a video DVD. There is a little more to it then that.

 

I have made lots of DVDs by combining individual clips seamlessly. Since you have given no information at all on how you are doing your project, its hard to offer suggestions.

You should be using Videowave and add the clips one after the other. They will then play seamlessly.

 

 

Memory has nothing to do with your problems.

My original dvds were recorded over a 2 week period in Laos. When I returned, I copied them from my camcorder to 5 dvds. I can take those 5 dvds and play them on my Sony cd/dvd player and they will play individual clips with a slight hesitation from one clip to another. What I was trying to do is rerecord them to possibly eliminate the hesitation and make it a seamless video. Not looking to add any other effects or enhancements - just a straight dvd to dvd copy. I used MyDVD and the finished product will not play on my player. Used Edit - advanced, same thing. Used copy and convert, same thing. Went to VideoWave and only 39 of 48 clips display and can be selected. On numerous occasions I got error messages such as Creator Classis cannot copy. Use Data and Copy tools; 8004520c err - encoding movie 1. In CineMagic movie, I clicked on add video/photo, selected video, blocks signifying clips loaded and some had the actual clip appear and the rest were blocks with either hour glass or movie reel and then the computer would stop processing. I guess what I was trying to accomplish is beyond my abilities to understand what Creator can/cannot or will/will not do. The amount of time spent trying to burn a disc is absolutely unacceptable. Why should it take 3+ hours to capture and burn a disc. When I transferred from my camcorder to the browser that came with it, it took approx. 10 mins to load into the browser. The browser also provided the option to select all clips or individual clips. Once I did that, I clicked copy and in less than 10 minutes I had my dvd. A far cry from the time required with Creator. Unfortunately after making the dvds I inadvertently deleted them from my camcorder and the browser. Ah well. Such is life. Don't worry. Maybe someday I will get smart enough to figure it out. As for VideoWave, I don't understand why I can't include all clips from my dvd to make a movie. What do I do with the 9 clips that I can't select? Ignore them. No way. Spoils the vacation.

I bet those clips you can't select are damaged in some way especially if the others work.

 

Download and run gspot codec information appliance on all the clips that won't load and a few where you do not have a problem. Can you see any difference in the codec. Does gspot give you some information on the ones you can't load?

 

Burning doesn't take much time but encoding those files to the format where they will play on a DVD player does. The time needed to encode is related to your CPU speed and video card capabilities.

 

Perhaps this is a good opportunity to learn about video editing, burning and DVD format.
