Jpeg Overlays Not Visible In Mpeg-2 Best Quality Output


Jimmy Pie

Question

In videowave 10 a project is created using video with jpeg overlays. All looks fine when reviewing in the production editor. When an output MPEG-2 is created some of the JPEG's either do not show at all or a black spot appears where the overlay is supposed to be. Is there a file size limit? JPEG's of 600KB or less seem to work but anything higher seems not to appear. The JPEG's were created using an Epson V500 scanner. Please advise.

 

 

Thank you, James

 

****** UPDATE!**** It did seem to be a file size issue. I used a file resizer and reduced the files to be under 600KB and then they worked fine. hope this helps others.

You didn't tell us anything about your computer but this is typical of a marginal computer and more typical of a marginal video card/chip. The first thing to try is to render (encode) using the software setting. In Video Wave, go to the top menu and select tools, options and then put a dot next to software. In that same window select to clear the proxy files. Defrag you hard drive.

 

Rendering is CPU intensive so make sure that you have nothing else running durning the rendering - no e-mail, no games, etc. Make sure your anti-virus is set to not scan files being written to you system drive.

 

Let us know how that works.

 

Typically image size doesn't matter. What dpi did you scan the images? Remember that normally 200-300 dpi is high enough (except for high definition projects). If you scanned at high resolution, perhaps the computer can't keep up but that would be highly unlikely.
