Black Images After Video

Question

Hello. I have worked countless hours on a Blu-ray project and I keep getting black images after videos within my project after I have burned it to either a Blu-ray or to a DVD. I create my project within VideoWave which is comprised with a combination of still images (JPEGs) and videos (AVI and QuickTime Movie). Within VideoWave, I can watch my project and there aren't any problems. I then add the VideoWave Project to MyDVD and burn the project (I burn it to a Folder Set with a High-Quality Setting), and it completes just fine. I then burn the Folder Set to a Blu-ray media then play it back on my Blu-ray Player connected to my TV and whenever a video within the project plays, the slide immediately following that video will be black. If I happened to have put text on one of those slides after a video, the text displays but the picture is completely black.

 

Things I have tried so far are:

 

1. Deleting the DAT file associated with the VideoWave Project

2. Deleting the Proxy Files within MyDVD

3. Upgrading the video driver

 

I have tried exporting my video from VideoWave in MPEG-2 Format (Blu-ray HQ) but for some reason, it gets to about 33% and then the video just stops playing during the export process and nothing else happens. VideoWave doesn't lock up (in Task Manager, it is still running) but it just hangs at around 33%. I've let it sit there over night and in the morning I check and it's still at the same spot and the file size and date that it is creating hasn't increased and the timestamp of the file is when I started exporting it). However, when I had this same problem with the Black Slides after a video when creating a DVD, I was able to export it to a MPEG-2 Format (DVD HQ) then I added that MPEG-2 file to MyDVD and was able to render it and burn it to DVD and the playback was perfect.

 

I have thought about adding a black slide (color slide) immediately after my videos within my VideoWave Project but that isn't the effect I am looking for. I was hoping maybe one of you can assist me or can offer me a suggestion.

 

Thanks for your help.

You got an identical post in the C2010 forum. You have not even stated what software you are using. Duplicate posts (especiall in two different software forums) just create confusion.

Yes--I made a mistake when I posted it in the 2010 section. Sorry about that. I didn't know how to delete it from that section so I just created a new post under the correct section.

This can be maddening sometimes :o

 

Update your video card/software ~ NVIDIA

 

The hang is of concern… :huh: It indicates a flaw somewhere I would try this after updating the drivers:

Do the
to the letter!

 

Then start to install of the Suite, only pick
Repair
when it is offered.

 

Lastly, hoping that you created all of this in VideoWave??? If so Export As into a different format. (you tried mp2 HD, now try something else…)

Thanks for your help with this. To say it is 'maddening' when that happens is definitely an understatement :lol: . I did follow your instructions to the letter. However, when I attempt to burn the project to a DVD Folder, it never makes it past 0%. I have restarted my computer numerous times and have disabled everything in the MSCONFIG Startup from starting, yet I get the same results--0% progress. I've even tried deleting the proxy files (that did work before when this occurred), but this time, it didn't. Any suggestions? Thanks again for your help.

What are the resolutions of the "slides" you have in your project?

I don't understand why I need to reduce the resolution of my pictures--I want the best quality output I can get. Again, the black images only pop up right after a video (AVI or QuickTime) is played. There seems to be a correlation to video playback and a still picture following it. If I add a color slide right after the videos, the very next picture displays just fine. I would prefer to not have color slides (blank slides) right after the videos.

For a standard DVD, the resolution is set to 720x480 (for NTSC) and to 720x576 (for PAL) idependant of what the source resolution is. For AVCHD and BlueRay the resolution is higher. Taking pictures at those high resolution settings is therefore pointless unless you want to do a lot of zooming into the pictures, detailed photo editing, etc.

I am actually creating a Blu-ray with this video. I have a Blu-ray burner. I was able to finally get the Blu-ray burned and when it played in my Blu-ray player attached to my HD TV, the quality was outstanding. It was only on those slides immediately following a video that I had a problem.

In one post you say you are outputting to a DVD Folder

 

In another you claim you are outputting to Blu-ray

 

This Makes a Difference! :(

 

If BD, why wouldn’t you post this in the BD Forum?

I've just reviewed all of my posts and my opening line in my very first post says that I am trying to create a Blu-ray.

 

I have used Roxio EMC for years and have faithfully upgraded it every year when a new one is released and it seems that I run into the same problem every time. I eventually get it to work but this time I can't. I have given up on this product and am looking at Photodex.

 

I feel that I have always been respectful when posting questions and thanking the ones who have answered me but it seems like the people who handle these posts tend to be negative and demeaning towards those of us who ask questions.

 

This will be my last post ever for this product.

Yes I did have some other thoughts, but since you are not interested, not much point :(

 

However, should you want to pursue this, we will always leave the light on ;)
