Problems With Copy And Convert


SemiCode
 Share

Question

Are you sure that your analog source files are true 16 by 9 or could it be 4 by 3 letterboxed. What is the source of the analog files?

 

There are several workarounds but I'm assuming that you don't want to use them.

 

I have written before and I am having the same problem using "Copy & Convert" with my Sony DCR-DVD405 DVDs. I can convert the DVDs to WMV but they are no longer in 16:9 aspect ratio. The output is 16:9, but the content is squeezed into a 4:3 window with black borders on either side. When I try to convert to other formats, the application crashes. I bought the Roxio software specifically for this functionality, but have not been able to use it.

 

The suggestion was to not convert but to edit the DVD directly in Video Wave. I tried that and did two splits of the video and the Video Wave program crashed. I have not been able to do anything useful with the Video Wave software.

It sounds like the video card is having problems. Load the video, walk away for 5- 10 minutes. Alternately load a short HD video and wait until it is fully loaded. I found that if you click to show hidden track and click on the native track, you will see the audio track being loaded long after the video track. In Video Wave, go to the top menu and select tools, options and put a dot next to software. Now try the split. Make sure you wait long enough for the split to take affect before you try another split. How long is the video? You computer is up to snuff but HD video editing take a lot of time.

 

Now back to the video card, you may want to consider removing and reloading the video drivers,

Bill has at least two posts running!

 

His card is more that adequate and he says he has tried hardware, software...

 

He was asked for the driver version but hasn't listed it yet..
