Will Roxio 2011 burn a mp4 file? Will it burn to a DVD +R and a DVD -R? Thanks.

 

Burn as what? A data DVD or a video DVD to be played on the stand-alone DVD player?

 

Videowave and myDVD will accept mp4 files.

Sorry guy's I apologize. I was in a hurry,late to a golf lesson. My little Samsung camera takes video in the mp4 format 16:9 wide screen. I'm new to Roxio 2011 and was doing a little with edit video advance then sent it to my DVD to burn. I have to change to 16:9 from 4:3 even though I select 16:9 in edit starting the project.It will never burn. A lady tech today said I would have to upgrade to pro to burn MP4. Creator will only burn a Mp2 so I would have to convert the file. Also she said I should use DVD-R not DVD+R. None of this made sense when I can save the file in edit advance and have windows burn it to wide screen. Seems like the Roxio software isn't working correctly or I guess it could be a cock pit problem on my end. Thanks

Hello 4putts,

 

 

A lady tech today said I would have to upgrade to pro to burn MP4. Creator will only burn a Mp2 so I would have to convert the file.

 

If she says you have to upgrade, which version do you have?

 

You named your topic "Roxio Burn", however Roxio Burn is a particular program in the Creator 2011 suite. Are you trying to make your DVDs with that rather than something like MyDVD?

 

Also she said I should use DVD-R not DVD+R.

 

Did she say WHY?

 

DVD+ is technically a better disc than DVD-, and if you're having trouble with old DVD players not wanting to play burned DVDs you can alter the 'booktype' of DVD+R discs so that they appear to be DVD-ROM discs whereas you can't do that with DVD-R which can't be altered.

 

 

Regards,

Brendon

I have Creator 2011 version 1.3.166 SP1 5.0.0.0. I'm using edit video advance and in the preview section is a button that says Send to MyDVD. After doing that I have never been able to burn a 16:9 DVD.This tech was some lady I guess in Asia.These were suggestion why I couldn't burn anything.I've even uninstalled and reinstalled. No luck! Like I said after using edit advance you can click on export as and save the file to windows. I can burn a 16:9 using windows DVD maker.Roxio is unable to do the same. No help from the tech, I'll try again tomorrow. I thought I would just get an answer to my two question to make sure the tech was wrong about the product.Should have bought Adobe I guess.

Hello again,

 

Thanks for that information. Can you tell me please, if you go to Help > About this software does your display show "PRO" under/alongside the 2011, or do you have the non-Pro version? [it's about the only reason I can think she might tell you to upgrade]

Now, Edit Video - Advanced, takes you to VIDEOWAVE and when I start Videowave this is the first selection I get. Please note, if you click on the drag-down alongside Format, you can select Widescreen (16:9).

Have you changed your selection from the default Normal, to Widescreen please?

I'm hoping you may have overlooked this - easy to do - and that once you select Widescreen you'll be away laughing.

Likewise, all versions of 2011 can burn MP4, the Tech was wrong telling you you need Pro!

 

Brendon’s suggestion should do the trick but… It must be done, BEFORE you add any video!!!

2011 has added Aspect Ratio Handling to the context menu:

 

Right click on the video clip and you can check your current production settings. You can’t change the Project aspect ratio! I did this screen cap for a different question ;)

 

There could be other problems, but for now try these things out, as they are required for getting it right! I have a few more questions, but let's get this done one problem at a time :D

Hi, I have Roxio Creator 2011. I go to Video-Movies/ Edit Advance Video/Roxio Video Wave/Get a welcome box and select 16:9 Wide Screen/click more settings select Fill Screen/ click OK and OK. I bring in my video and do a little editing. The question is how do I get this project to burn to a DVD in 16:9 with fill Screen. The video is shot in 16:9. Thanks

Save your VW project as a dmsm file. Exit VW, start myDVD (Create DVDs), add the dmsm project and burn

Hi, I posted a new question but closed it out so I'll ask it here.I have Roxio Creator 2011 ( not pro) I open Roxio /Video Movie/Edit Advance Video/Select in the welcome box 16:9 Wide Screen/click more settings select Fill screen/ Click OK/OK. I bring in the video and check the aspect ratio as suggested and again choose fill screen. Edit my video. The question is how do I get this to burn to a DVD with these settings.?? Please answer at this point. Thanks for all your time and help!!

 

( Every time I click send to my DVD it's in 4:3. When I change to 16:9 in my DVD it say's all changes lost.)

No! It doesn't work that way...

 

A video is what it is and Roxio doesn't change it.

 

If you select a 16:9 Project in VideoWave, you don't have to 'fill screen' if your adding a true 16:9 video...

 

If you save the VW Project (dmsm) as Walt pointed out, and add the Project to MyDVD it isn't going to become 4:3!

 

You are not following the instructions and you will not get what you want until you do :(

 

Now go back and do what I recommended to see what VW thinks about your video clip and follow Walts instructions to the letter.

 

Tell us what it actually says and does. Screen caps would be a big assist here too ;)

Hi Guys. I was finally somewhat successful. I got the project to burn. My camera puts out a true 16:9 image. I select 16:9 in video wave then save it go to my DVD and burn it. On my 60in wide screen from my blu-ray player I get black bars on each side and have to chance the TV from full to H-fill. When I do the movie in videowave and select 16:9 and then select fill,I get a full picture on the TV in Full aspect. Thanks for your help and Jim I would be glad to follow Watts instructions if I knew who he was.

Then your source is not a true 16:9…

 

Or your TV isn’t really 16:9…

 

Or you don’t have your Player and/or your TV set properly to display 16:9.

 

If you play it with CinePlayer and you don’t have bars, it is a 16:9 disc.

Still don't know Walt, and when played in Cineplayer it has bars on the side. Just a note when I take the same video from the same camera and use windows live movie maker and burn with windows DVD maker there are no bars on the side when played on anything. The case can be closed and you can blame it on the user. Thanks

Blame you??? No, that's too easy! :lol:

 

I really wish you would check the Production and Source aspect ratio as I showed you how to do Post #8 with VideoWave…

 

In fact you can do that while trying this Band-Aid… :o

 

In VW add a color panel to the Video Track. (make double sure you have a 16:9 Project)

 

Then add your Video as an Overlay.

 

Position it to the upper left corner of the preview window. Then use the drag handles to Drag it to the lower right corner:

Should look like this:

Take it to MyDVD and burn it. (I hope you have some DVD RW’s by now :( )

3:2 = 15:10

 

Close but no cigar :lol:

 

You could simply use the Fill Frame or try the Overlay as I suggested and understand it will be cropped at the top and bottom... No way around that, ratio's are LAW!

 

Or just put up with it... Go to the video store and rent any BD movie on the shelf and tell me about those black bars at the top and bottom of your TV...

 

Most movies today are made in 2.35:1 ratio. That is 15.9: 6.8 yet no one complains about that :unsure:

 

Let us know what you work out.

Something is fishy. If the files are 16:9, you shouldn't have to use Aspect handling. If you could post some sample files on YouSendIt or FileSwap, we would happy to check the files on our machines. Just post the link here. Just send the file sharing email to yourself and copy the link from the email here.

 

Also your Bluray player should be connected to the hidef TV with an HDMI cable. That way the TV will automatically change aspect ratio. When connected using composite (yellow cable) or component (RGB cables), some sets may have issues automatically recognizing aspect ratio.
