Hangs When Converting Videos For .iso Image File

Question

I have the following system:

Dell XPS 8100

Intel i7 870 @2.93 GHz

12 GB RAM

Windows 7 64 bit Operating System

ATI Radeon HD 5700 Graphics Card

 

Is there certain file types that are better to use when creating BD disks? When I import .mts files that came from my Canon Vixia HF20 into MyDVD portion of Roxio 11 with the BD plug in, it brings them in fine. I select the "add as one movie" button. I can edit them, add text, clip, etc... When I add a couple of movies groups in that fashion to the project everything looks good til I go to burn. When trying to burn a .iso image file to the hard drive, it gets to the stage where it says converting files and freezes or hangs indefinitely. Sometimes I have to quit the program and it will say that VideoWave is not responding and Windows 7 is looking for a solution to the problem, but none is ever found. If I convert the .mts files to mpeg formats using another program first, it says it needs to convert them to a format roxio can use, it does and then the .iso file image seems to burn ok, but why should I need to do this outside of Roxio if Roxio supports .mts files? I need help on this please. I have also tried bringing in the .mts files into Roxio editor and then sending them over to MyDVD as a production. The encoder can get to a certain point, maybe 47% and then hangs as well. Somethimes it only get to 11%.

That is not the way you should be working! Take a look through THIS.

 

MyDVD is an Authoring tool, not intended to be an Editor.

 

Load your files into VideoWave and do an Export As before going to MyDVD.

 

You may want to record your files with your camcorder set to FXP instead of MXP. I get mixed results with FXP.

Thank you very much for that tutorial, I think I understand what you are saying and I am almost there now. Was successful in burning BD and it plays fine in machine. Still one problem I can't figutre out. Thought I had figured out how to play all the "titles" on the disk by creating a submenu, titleing it "play all videos" and choosing the link Go to: "all movies in project". It works great when I try it on the preview but when burning it says Unsupported function button and the burn fails. I have narrowed it down to just this button as I created a simple project with only one title movie in it on a sub menu and the other submenu button with the "play all" link. When I remove the "play all button" it is fine, but in there it is unsupported function error? Any ideas?

 

I have read many of your threads on setting up titles/movies versus chapters. I have 22 movies over various dates form various events in my families lives. What I want the ability to do is to either play all the movies on the disk by pushing play once, but also be able to select individual movies on a some form of on screen menu as well in case they wanted to go back and just watch somehthing like one moview of a band performance, without watching the entire disk or flipping through chapters while playing tha whole movie. Unless I am stil not getting this right, chapters don't display on the screen anywhere, they are not selectable and the only way to navigate to them is using the remote on the blue ray player. Is that correct?

 

Thanks for your help.

I don't have time to double check this right now, but if I recall correctly, the Unlinked button does not work in BD & AVCHD Projects!

 

Ah! I found it ~ I had reported this last year with 2010... Here

 

I see that now in your previous article. That is exactly what I was doing and I see that it will not work. That is unfortunate. They shoudl probably not allow the project to add buttons that are not supported since they knwo what type of file you are working on as it asks you the first thing when you load MyDVD. Perhaps when you have some time after Christmas, you can tell me if there is any work around for what I am trying to do. I appreciate your help very much! Otherwise I have a bunch of movies that I want to be able to go in and pick at random but also play all of them with one click if possible.

 

Thanks Jim.

The only 'work around' is to make a false button.

 

Create a picture or color panel, could be a scrolling text telling the view what they are going to see… An alternate would be a Color Panel, trimmed to 11 frames (minimum allowed). That will be about 1/2 of a second long.

Button behavior in BD is different. Default is to display whatever is linked to the button and return to the menu. The After Playing has been locked out.

 

So we add the “false button” and rename it to Play All. Then set the Link, Go to: properties to All Movies in menu or project – your choice.

Not the control we are used to enjoying in a DVD Project, but close and it forces us to be a little creative ;)

Jim,

 

Thanks for all your help. I think I must have had an ephinay over Christmas as I guess I finally understand the difference between movies and chapters and I see that I can add all my slideshows to one movie and all my movie segments to another movie and then have it label all those slideshows and movies as chapters in my project. They then show up on the chapter pages as selectable individually, but they will also play all the way through the "movie" playing all the segments at once. Exactly what I was wanting to do. Just took me a while to realize how to do it. You have been tremendously helpful with all your information. Thank you very much. I have now successfully imported 6 months of video clips and slideshows into Videowave, saved the projects and created a BD with two menus, one to play videos and one to play slideshows, "burned" an image to my hard drive and then burned that image to BD disk. Worked great! Those "movies" are made up of chapters of individual movie segments and monthly slideshows, allowing me to select individually if I want to, but also the BD player will just keep going from one chapter to the next if I want to play the whole disk and I can skip to the next chapter using the next button on the remote. YEAH!!! I am so glad I could get this to work. Again thanks so much for all your help!

Good you hear that it finally came all together. The concept of movie titles and chapters and their inter-relation seems to be a big problem for users. Many users treat titles and chapters as the same thing which they are not.
