Question

Roxio Creator 2010.....

Does anyone know if you can add a video in to the middle of a production without disrupting the rest of it. I have music and video synced throughout the project and want to add a video ad the begining without having to recreate everything else.

 

Thanks

No, unfortunately you cannot do that. You post says Middle and then it says beginning. Which is it?

 

If it is at the beginning, what you can do, if you plan no further editing of the production other than the initial video, is to output the file as an mpg2 for DVD best quality. When that completes, create a new project and add that video and then add that mpg2 file you just created.

 

If it is in the middle, then that is a little tricker. split the production where you want to insert the video. Save the production. Now select everything up to the split and use Windows copy. The start a new project and use Windows paste to past what you have. Output that to an mpg2 file as above. Open the original project and delete everything you copied above. Output that to an mpg2 file.

 

Start a new project, add the first mpg2, the video and then the second mpg2. The trick is to select the right place for the split and add transitions so that it looks almost seamless.
