Sound Soap Se


Lynn Lynn

Question

Win 7 Pro 64 Creator 2011 Pro

First, I used VW to convert/output a set of some 12 MTS clips to a single MPG file, best quality. Sound Soap did not recognize the file, it seems. The filename suffix was .mpg

 

 

So, then I looked over the file types that Sound Soap seemed to like, and I found such suffixes as wav,mp3,mp4, and avi. Because I did not and as yet do not know how to get VW to output to a specific particular suffix, but saw AVI as a suffix common between the two applications, I used VW to output as AVI. This time, Sound Soap SE gave the message "failed to create wave compiler instance."

 

I have horrible wind noise in my home movie taken in a very windy place. Based upon my viewing a tutorial about Sound Soap, I was hoping to use it.

 

How do I get VW and Sound Soap to play nicely together?

I shall do as you suggest, and see if the wind noise is reduced sufficiently. However, I still do not understand why an AVI video file output by VW is not acceptable to Sound Soap SE, which shows AVI as one of the input file types.

There are at least a couple of types of AVI files.[/url.

 

Sound Soap was originally designed by Bias to be a Apple type application. That is why it won't accept mpg2 and some types of AVI files.

 

Perhaps this will help with the Sound Soap settings.

I just tried SoundSoap with avi files. I had no problems with any DV avi files (even those created by VW) but it will not accept DivX avi files. What type of avi files to you create with VW?

For a very short test, I opened VW (in C2011 Pro), then using Media Selector dragged one clip to StoryLine, Export as DV format AVI. Then opened Sound Soap SE 2.4, File - Open Media File -- selected the AVI file exported by VW. (Properties 42 seconds, video 720x480 29530 kbps, audio bit rate 1536 kbps,48 kHz.) In the Sound Soap Open Media File dialog box, the clicking the play button (right-pointing triangle) played the sound of the clip OK. But when I selected OPEN, the error message box "Invalid File" has the text "Failed to Create Wave Compiler Instance"

They are not intended to play with each other, since SoundSoap is not a Roxio product. But, you can bring your video, into VideoWave, and extract the audio from the video file, and save it as a .wave file, then take it into SoudSoap for editing.

 

In VideoWave, click on View, then on Media Selector. While Video Selector is showing, click on View again, the click on Dock Media Selector.

 

In Media Selector, browse to your video file, then right click on it, and select Extract audio. Save the audio to a new folder on your computer. Open SoundSoap, and bring in that newly created audio file, for editing.

 

I don't know if you will get good results in SoundSoap, but if you do get something that works for you, come back, and I, or someone else, will show you how to put that file back into your VideoWave production, and mute the existing native audio of the video file.
