Video Copy & Convert 13 (in Creator 2011)

Question

Roxio Creator 2011 (Build 131b66A ENU)

Roxio Copy & Convert

windows 7 Ultimate (32bit)

 

The program does not convert at the set data-rate.

I am unable to modify it if queing > 3 movies.

 

 

I am converting Movies from DVD.

 

Conversion to :

XBOX

Compression: WMV

Resolution: 720x480

Frame Rate NTSC (29.97)

Data Rate: set at 2000 kbps

audio format wma

Sampling Rate 44,1KHZ

Sample Size 16 bits

Channels stereo

 

 

I click on Movies Icon. I can add 1, 2 or 3 movies.. Everything works fine.

Movie is encoded as specified ( the converted movie in wmv format is at 2000kbps

 

However, when I add 4 movies, the conversion data rate decreases. It then outputs

the movie at 1923 kbps. (not the 2000 kbps)

 

When I que up 5 movies, (Still selecting the same (2000 Kbps as above)

the output movies in wmv format now are encoded at 1562 kbps.

 

when I que up 6 movies, the output then decreases to 1313 Kbps.

 

Whe I que up 7 Movies, the output .wmv movie decreases to 1073 Kbps.

 

The output data rates decreases with each additional movie.

 

This was also a problem with the 2010 version. I upgraded to 2011 Roxio, and it has

same issue.

 

I can increase the slider for Data- rate, but it has no effect, when I attempt to convert more than 3 movies at one time.

 

This issue pretty much makes this product useless for batch processing.

 

I would appreciate any help, and hope Roxio will fix this problem.

 

Bill

It may be thinking you want to convert them back to make a single DVD. How much time are you talking about when you add the forth, fifth, etc movie?

No Output is set to file/directory.

 

 

 

 

 

I have experienced this problem for 2 years. It existed with Roxio Creator 2010

 

So I upgraded to Roxio 2011, and the problem persisted.

 

OS- WIndows 7 Ultimate (New Install not Upgrade) SP1

Prior - windows Xp sp3 a year ago.

NO recent changes. It has been this way even with a clean Install of Win 7 Ultimate SP1

 

Input VIdeo Format. .VOB.

 

Example:

 

I have copied DVD's completely to Hard drive. WHen I choose movies, I select the Directory

c:\DVD1\VIDEO_TS Directory. Then each chapter shows up as a separate movie. I select 3 movies.

 

Then I click on Movies Icon again and select 3 movies from the following Direrctory

 

C:\DVD2\Video_TS Directory

 

Then I click on Movies Icon again and select 3 movies from the following Direrctory

 

C:\DVD3\Video_TS Directory

 

Now I have selected 9 Movies.

 

 

save to File / folder WMV format

 

 

I attempt to convert them to XBOX WMV 720X480 Data rate 2000 Kbps.

 

However now with 9 movies qued, the converted movies are at 926 Kbps (when the setting is still at the default setting of 2000KBPS

 

If 3 or less movies are qued up, it works as set on the GUI.

 

each additional movie that is qued > 3 results in the program incrementally decreasing the

converted bit rate. I have tried all the way up to 9 movies qued at a time.

All that and you did not answer a simple question ! :o

I think I found enough to put this together...

 

band is using Video Copy and Convert.

 

When VCC outputs to Devices rather than a Movie format, like DVD or BD, it produces seperate files for each of the clips in the Source pane.

 

When I loaded 8 clips and selected Xbox for output only the first few came through with Data Rate I set. The rest were reduced.

 

I tried it again only using MP4 in place of WMV and got same results...

 

VCC has the advantage in this case of allowing you to pick Chapters from within a DVD Movie and producing the output as seperate files.

 

I also tried MP4 but got the same results! :angry:

 

Then on to 'Zune', same!

 

Trying 'Video' now as MPEG-2 but have an appointment I have to go to.

 

Hoping we can find a painless workaround ;)

This works out:

 

Use the Video choice along with MPEG2:

This will keep all output at the Data Rate you chose.

 

IF you want to have all of the files combined into one during output, VideoWave would be a better choice.

Jim,

 

Thank you for your help. However, I need the output format to be .wmv

 

I tested, the output "Video" as you show in your post, and selected WMV format.

 

 

 

But the output bit rate 1317 kbps not the desired 2000 kbps

 

thank you

Don't try to make this impossible... Your Xbox will play many formats, WMV is only ONE of them ;)

 

I gave you the only 2 feasible options, Change Format or Combine Clips into one contiguous movie...

 

Less feasible would be to output them one file at a time :(

 

This is a 'problem' that will not be fixed for 2011 and probably not even in the 2012 version, so workarounds are all that can be done.

 

If you can supply any more details as to your final output, we might hit upon a better workaround :lol:

When I convert to WMV HD720 and HD1080 they have a data rate of 8000 plus.

 

Question, where are you getting 2000??

Band did you find a fix?

 

You do realize that the original poster has not been back for over a year.
