What application in the Creator 2009 suite are you using, and what are you trying to do with it?

 

Do you have the files copied over onto your computer, or are you trying to do that with Creator 2009?

 

Files are on my computer. I have various clips that I want to clip together and edit to make one video. I'm trying create DVD or video wave 9. I was using a program to convert the files first and then import them but the software I was using (mpeg streamclip) now is making me upgrade my quicktime mpeg2 playback which I don't want to pay for. I think I have seen an upgrade or a way to just import mpeg files directly to Roxio.

Are you sure those are mpg2 files and not mjpeg (Motionjpeg). This program will not work with those types of files.

 

If you tell us what camera you have, we can check.

The camera is a Canon FS100A

The version I'm using is My DVD 9 Studio Premier. Will this version run mpeg2 files, and if not is there an upgrade.

I could not find that camcorder on their site but the FS200 is a flash camera that does record in mpg2 so I assume that you are correct. Mpg2 is a standard format that is used to burn video on to a disc. I would assume that it would handle the files. Did you ever get any error messages that you need to activate the mpg2 encoder? That was in the full version but I don't know if it was in the Premier. I assume that it was.

 

Let's go back to the start. Did you just COPY file files off the camcorders flash memory to a file on your computer? You would just use Windows to do this. No need for Roxio at that point.

 

Download gspot (terrible name but good program) and drag one of those files to it's page. What dos it say about the video codec - installed or not; activated or not?

 

As for other software, yes, depending on your computer there are several alternatives. Creator 2010 is the latest and greatest. However, buying new software to fix a problem is not the best way to do it. If it is a codec activation issue, the later versions would not have this issue. You may be able to pick up Creator 2009 (obsolete) version inexpensively on-line. Creator 2010 seems to have a lot more applications that allow you to sync audio/video with your portable devices (phone, mp3 player. etc.)

So I now know that studio premier won't read mpeg files. I'm now thinking about My DVD 10 Premier. I just want to be certain that this will read my mpeg files. I just did a bit mor research and found out that the camera I have (Canon FS100) has what is called .MOD files. These I guess are some kind of modified mpeg2 format that canon uses. Will the My DVD 10 premier recognize these files?

Answered in the other post - really !

 

My DVD 10 Permier is an older version of the current product. Creator 2010 is the latest and I believe that by renaming the MOD file ot mpg2 will allow them to work.

 

Buy it directly from Roxio on-line and you have a 30 day no questions asked return/money back policy if it doesn't work for your application.!
