Random Pictures Blanked Out

Question

I've set up a production and it plays perfectly fine from within Videowave. I've even output it as a wmv file and that's fine as well. However, when I burn it to DVD, random photos are replaced with a black screen for the duration of that frame. I've tried burning it 4 times now to no avail. I've disconnected the PC from the internet and shut down pretty much everything else on the PC including my antivirus and firewall software... no difference.

 

Has anyone experienced this problem and have a workaround? I'm under a bit of pressure as I need to have this on DVD by Saturday.

 

Thank you,

 

Frank

 

P.S. I'm running Windows XP on a Pentium 4 CPU, 3.2GHz, 2GB RAM

Try switching your render method from hardware to software or vice versa. Look under Tools/Options for this setting. You can also test there if your graphics card is capable of running this software.

 

Converting to wmv has nothing to do with the final DVD video. What happens when you output to mpeg Best DVD quality?

 

You can also burn to and iso image file (uncheck burn to disc and cselect "create image") and then copy the iso image file to DVD using the Burn Image to disc option.

You are the BEST, my friend! Switching from hardware to software did the trick... thank you so much, Walt! I was one more unsuccessful burn away from throwing my PC through a window!

 

Hope you're having a great day!

Glad that it is working for you!

 

With the software setting you will lose some of the transitions and effects, mainly the ones referred to as 3D. Perhaps you could upgrade your video card to one that is more compatible with the software.
