Editing in VideoWave

Question

I am using Creator 2010 Pro, and have a VideoWave question.

 

 

I have created a VideoWave Project that is 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is too long to get on one dvd in the highest quality, so I would like to split my project in half. I was able to delete everything past the 52 minute mark (I manually deleted the videos, music, overlays, etc. to create Disc 1. Is there a way you can delete the video line, music line, overlay lines, etc. in one big block (the first half of the project) and have the whole project then move to the beginning of the timeline, while keeping the videos, music, and overlays aligned?

Ever consider DL discs? Most newer burners will burn them and most DVD players will play them.

Jim,

 

I tried what you said, but I must be doing something wrong. In my project, I would be deleting at least 111 video clips, with several music, overlays and text lines. This is what I did.

 

While in the timeline mode, I did a split at the 52nd minute mark

 

While on the video line, held the shift key and went to the beginning of the show and selected the first slide and hit the delete button

 

All the videos after that point moved to the beginning of project - but the text, music, and overlays stayed where they originally were placed

I saved file and reopened - nothing was readjusted.

 

I then manually deleted all the text, music, and overlays up to the 52nd minute mark - but nothing moved - I would still have to realign the music, overlays, and text lines.

 

I even tried storyline mode and deleted all the clips up to the 52nd minute mark and then looked on the timeline mode, but the music and overlays were not deleted, just the video clips.

 

Is there a way to select the first part of the video - all the video clips, music, overlays, and text lines at one time - and then delete them? Then have the last part of the video - music, overlays, and text lines - all move to the beginning?

 

Thanks for all your help.

 

 

Sknis,

 

Thanks for your suggestion. I am using a DL disc, but it seemed that I could not get the highest quality on one disc as the file rendered at 13 gig. So I am using two DL discs for this project.

Unfortunately I don't think it is possible to do a "multi-selection" delete covering several tracks.

 

Another option is to Output to DVD mpeg, best quality video file. Then launch myDVD (Create DVDs), add the mpeg video file and create split at the appropriate point. Save the project as Full.dmsd project file. Then delete the 2nd half and burn the 1st half to DVD. After burning, Open the Full.dmsd project again, delete the 1st half and burn the 2nd half to DVD. Since the video was previously rendered to DVD compliant video, it should not be re-rendered in myDVD and the burn should go quickly

A 1hr 45 minute project should burn to a DL DVD without any loss of quality. Forget about file size, its the time length of your project that matters.

Agreed! File size is not a measure in Video work!!!

 

It is time and quality that determine what will fit!

 

Use this, it is a lot easier to work with:

 

DVD Time – DVD Capacity

4.7Gb:

HQ = 1:06

SP = 1:37

LP = 2:22

ELP = 3:04

 

8.5 Gb:

HQ = 2:00

SP = 2:57

LP = 4:19

ELP = 5:35

 

You can see that your 1:45, will easily fit on a DL disc.

 

For the splitting??? Let me dabble with it a bit…

With the splitting, I don't have a really good solution. :(

 

One solution is to Export As. This will Render the file combining everything you have done into one Movie.

 

You can then split that Movie in MyDVD and save both parts…

 

The disadvantage is that you forfeit all ability to edit the individual tracks as everything will now be combined into the Movie Track and Native Audio Track during Render.

 

So if you spotted a misspelling in the Text in MyDVD you would have to go back to VW and fix it. Then Export As again delete the Bad file in MyDVD and add the fixed one.

 

I was hoping Trim might do it, but it only works on the Movie & Native Audio Tracks…

Myguggi,

 

I didn't realize that dvd recording is based more on time than the size of the file. That is good to know. I will try to burn the video on one DL dvd and see what happens.

 

Jim,

 

Thank you for the time guide. I am sure that will come in handy. Thanks for taking the time to see if it was possible to delete more than one track at a time. I also thought of your suggestion of exporting the video as a mpeg and then bringing it back to VW to cut the movie in half. However, you suggested doing that in MyDVD. I did see where you could edit a movie in MyDVD, so if the video does not fit on one DL disk, I will try your suggestion.

 

Again, thank you both for all your help.

Don;t do any video editing in My DVD; they do not show up in Video Wave in case you need to do more extensive editing or use that project outside of the one you are currently working to complete.

 

The DL will work but make sure you are using GOOD DL discs, Verbatim is the best you can find locally.

Sknis,

 

Thanks for the advice. I was originally thinking of doing it in VW and then saving the separate files, however, I am hopeful it will all fit on one disc. I will look for Verbatim DL discs.

 

Thanks, again, for all your help.
