Videowave hangs up

Question

Videowave opens and allows photos to load and save in a new project. Inserting a color panel is performed, but then the program hangs up. Moving to another panel does not show in the Preview and unable to conduct saves or any other actions. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with and without anti-virus active. No difference. I downloaded the Creator 2010 update. No difference. I'm unable to complete the project and need help. Thanks.

Running a Dell Dimension with Windows XP and Service Pack 3, Pentium 4 at 2.5GHZ with 1GB RAM. Images loaded into my project are about 350KB each, so with about 100 photos (31.0 MB) it takes a couple of minutes to run the first save.

 

Your windows' photo test ran smoothly, including the color panel insert and saves.

 

Am I to assume that each of my 350KB images should be reduced to enable the project to run properly?

Really appreciate your help. Thanks.

No! Absolutely not!!!

 

Picture size depends on output type (VCD – DVD – AVCHD – BD etc.) and the Quality setting for that output.

 

They will be rendered to fit at the time the disc is burned.

 

Your PC seems OK although you included no info on your Video Card.

 

In any case, while in VideoWave change Render (Tools – Options) to Software…

 

That should increase your performance.

Dell Dimension what? Video card or graphics adaptor?

 

Size of photos has nothing to do with saving the project file and only comes into play when rendering. All images get converted to the same size when rendered (720x480)

 

I assume by "saving" you mean saving the project file?

Problem not solved. I'm using NVIDIA GEFORCE 4 MX with updated driver. Reduced photo sizes to about 100kb jpegs each. Loaded 7 images and 3 color insert panels with intermediate saves. No problems until I tried to interchange panel 10 and panel 9. System hung up with Windows task manager showing that VideoWave 12 was continuous at 95% usage. Thourghly confusing to me.

Photo sizes has nothing to do with your problems, as was mentioned a couple of times. I think the problem is your totally out of date graphics card - it dates back to 2002.

 

You could try switching the render mode to software if currently set to hardware (under Tools/Options).

I switched render mode from hardware to software - color insert panels show OK in the preview screen but my photo images all appear black. I didn't have this problem when I was using Media Creator 7, but wanted the new features of Creator 2010.

There have been problems reported with the latest nVidia drivers

Try rolling back to the earlier one and see if that helps any

 

I downloaded (2nd or 3rd time) the updated driver for NVIDIA GEForce 4 MX and it was recognized by Creator 10. I am now using Videowave and getting results (for the time being). It takes 3 minutes for each project save (nearly 100 panes), but it is working. Thanks for the help.

That GeForce 4 probably worked okay with EMC 7 or 8, but it is a little on the light end for work with Creator 2010. It will work, but you will have to have a lot of patience. :)

 

The final result is all that counts.
