Export Wmv File @ 1920X1080

Question

Am having great difficulty with rendering a slide show using WMV @ 1920x1080 in Videowave. Many of the slides render as nothing but black. Problem doesn't happen at 1280x720. Have a relatively new ATI video card (Radeon HD4650) with the latest drivers on a Win 7 (64) machine. Any ideas??

What option in videowave export as does WMV at 1920 x 1080?

 

cdandteek, I was about to ask the same question as bladec59, the original poster...

 

VideoWave offers the option of outputting a video in more WMV resolutions (up to 1920X1080) on my laptop then on my desktop. I, like you, am limited to a top resolution of 640x480 under WMV9. My laptop also offers 1280x720 in WMV9..

 

I suspect the codecs installed would be a factor, that is the answer I was looking for whan I came here.

 

Any other ideas?

The original poster (OP) was outputting a slide show and those are the options in C2010 and C2011. Your outputting a video what purpose are you choosing?

In VideoWave, after the project is done...

 

If I want create a standalone movie. I use "Output", "Export as..." I select Video File, purpose All, and I have no high-resolution picks.... see screen capture. But I have those choices in VideoWave on my laptop. Oddly enough, I do have high-resolution choices in Photoshow software.

To get the high res options in Video Wave, you have to start with a 16 by 9 project.

And here is the same from my laptop... "Output", "Export as..." I select Video File, purpose All, and I have a multitude high-resolution picks.... there are even some choices for Blu-ray authoring under the "pupose" drop-down menu...

One is showing NTSC and one is showing both.

 

Choose a 16.9 project from the beginning.

Oh cr@p... I just threw in 5-6 pictures in a new project and went to render it, and you are correct, I now have a much greater pick list... including Blu-ray authoring and WMV V9 at HD resoultions...

 

Damm!

 

Is there anyway that I can rescue a project or do I have to restart from scratch?

So there is a way to rescue the project. Make a backup of your .DMSM file. Using a text editor (like notepad), edit the file.... look at the first few lines. There should be a tag for aspectRatio. If you went for a 4:3 production, then the ratio would be listed as 1.333333333333333 .....

 

Just replaced with the following string:

 

<aspectRatio dt:dt="r8">1.77777777777778</aspectRatio>

 

 

Save the file and keep the .dmsm extension (not .txt!!)

 

 

Open the file in VideoWave... your pics will now have black pillars on each sides.

 

Just click in each panel and adjust the aspect ratio for each picture or video... that should be it, save away!

No!

 

Well kinda… :(

 

You could output your Project as a 4:3 file, then load that file back into a new 16:9 Project set to Fill Frame with non 16:9 sources…

 

It will be cropped a little at the top and bottom but that is the only way.

 

One thing I didn’t see mentioned in here was the resolution of your Source???

 

Rule of Video, you can’t render UP!

 

You can but it reduces quality often making the picture blurry.

 

Doing it the way I described will result in that. But if all you have is Standard Def source, you don’t want to render it to HD anyway… :huh:

All pictures in the production are at least 2k px x 3k px, so I get sufficient resolution for HD rendering. Doing it your way would not give me back the quality I had before I rendered at 640x480..

 

Anyway, all fixed up now, thanks!
