.mpg Files

Question

I am new to Roxio and installed Creator 2011. I made a video with a Sony DCR-SR190E camcorder bought in the UK. The camcorder recording format is MPEG2-PS and downloaded it using Creator 2001.

 

When I tried to edit in Videowave first there was no sound on the 1st two clips after using output. Also the picture quality was poor, added to this the images on the storyline all faded.

 

I contacted Roxio and they asked I checked the file format which was .mpg. Roxio then informed me that Roxio Creator 2011 does not support .mpg files. They further suggested that I refer the link to know the supported files in Creator 2011 and suggested I try with those files and check if the issue persists.

 

Question is can the .mpg be converted to a format Roxio Creator 2011 can accept and if so how do I do it.

Of course Roxio supports "mpeg"!

 

However 'mpeg ps' is not a common format...

 

I have no personal experance with the PS format but either of these 2 free converters should be able to do what you need:

 

AVS4YOU Converter:

AVS

 

Any Video Converter

HERE

 

Let us know how that works out ;)

Hi Jim

Thanks for the advice. I downloaded Any Video Converter and converted a .mpg file to mpeg-11(*.mpg) as a trial. I could import to the storyline and it played and could be edited in videowave. However all the windows in the storyline were black (no picture) when the video was sent to output/export, the video would not play in movie maker. It also created 2 files in my documents, a DAT file and a .dmsm file (2 files were previously created with the .mpg file)

 

I tried again and converted to mpeg-1. This time it worked OK but picture quality was very poor and no pictures on the storyline.

 

There are several common Output profile formats in the convertor menu including DVD Video pal*mpg) Customise AVI Movie(*.avi,Customise WMV movie(*.wmv) etc., Can you recommend the one to use.

 

Is there a reason why Roxio have problems with .mpg files as Nero, Movie maker and CS4 do not have a problem with these files?

Thanks George

Why is it a problem??? I can guess and would say it has something to do with a PAL camcorder as well as it using a format that Sony stopped using a time ago???

 

I have not been able to locate that camcorder on Sony’s site which is a bit of a handicap… JUST FOUND IT! LINK

 

 

MPEG 1 is for VCD’s and not an acceptable quality these days.

 

The DMSM & DAT files are Roxio proprietary files. They are readable ONLY to Roxio and do not contain a single frame of Video in them!

 

If you attempted to use these files in any other program, they will fail…

 

I would try AVI as well as MPEG 2. You can either keep them in PAL format or convert them to NTSC at that time. It doesn't matter as they will be rendered to the Output of your Choice when your use MyDVD to Author a disc.

 

You may even need to use the Sony software to get the files onto your PC but you will just have to play around with it a bit to see what works ;)

Hi Jim

 

I think I have found the solution. In the Sony PMB program which stores all videos and photos, if you right click on the actual video it gives an option to convert to MPEG-2 and save. This saves the video into my pictures and works fine when imported into edit video.

 

thanks for your help
