How to add text to slides in


LkwdAngel
 Share

Question

Creator 2009 w/SP 4.

Using Video Wave application.

 

 

I've been having two problems.

 

One is when I try and add a title to a slide while in Video Wave. My computer's freezes and the screen resolution changes. I have to restart my computer in order to get back my video monitor.

 

The other problem is one that has been discussed on this forum before: Adding text to slides that spawn onto the next slide. I understand, from this forum, that I should go to Timeline view and add the text to the internal tracks.

 

Specifically, what are the exact steps to do that? (I think that I am doing that however my computer still freezes and the computer screen resolution is changed and I have to restart my computer)

 

Here's what I am doing.

I open VW. File->Open Production. I select my .dmsm file.

 

Above the Production Editor pane I select "Timeline". In the Production Editor I see all of my pictures/slides all overlapping.

 

I select the first picture/slide in row "Video". The picture/slide is in the Preview Pane.

From the Preview Pane toolbar I select A+ add text button. The template pops up on the picture/slide in the Preview Pane and I attempt to overwrite the default text with my own and then my computer crashes. What am I doing wrong?

Before getting the text problem sorted out, I think you should get the freeze/resolution problem fixed.

 

What are your system specs, especially video card? At what screen resolution are you running your system?

Try running using the software mode, under Tools/Options when in Videowave.

Changing the "using rendering" from hardware to software (Tools->Options) solved the problem of my computer crashing when I attempted to edit the default text box on a slide.

 

My other problem, slide text spawing adjacent slides was solved by this forum. Add the text when in Timeline view and selecting Internal tracks.

 

Thank You

Glad things are working now. Unfortunately your notebook may not have the graphics power to be able to use all of the video features available in the program. Some transitions, effects, etc are disabled and/or may cause your system to crash.

Do you have any idea which features I might not be able to use? Or will I just have to wait and see?

 

I have access to another laptop that is only 3 months old. I was wondering if it would be better to use that computer?

 

How difficult is it to switch between computers editing productions in VW (assuming that the same version of Creator 2009 is on both computers)?

 

I currently have some .dmsd and .dmsm on one computer. Is it simply a matter of copying those over to the other computer and continuing editing them on the newer computer.

That will be a real headache. The files are just pointers to items that are on your computer with the exact location. If you move the projects, you also have to move the resources (images, music, video, etc.) to folders that have the exact same address as on the first computer. It can be done but as I said, a real headache.

 

Really, the only thing you will be missing are those 3D transitions that require hardware rendering. There are a lot left that can be done in software render. If you switched to software, then you will see only the ones you can work with. Are you using any 3D transitions?
