Question

Capture raw AVI with Creator 2011 from a Sony camcorder, use Creator for DVD project, less than 60 minutes, Burn disk.

On play back in computer or DVD player, any panning of the camera shows blurred lines on screen. When camera is still video is fine.

Raw files used in project play back with no blurring.

Using Creator since Nov 2010, on same computer, Windows 7, same camera, same Sony media.

It burned perfectly for over a year and lately the results are poor.

Nothing has changed in settings. Always used 16X, 16:9, Fit to disk at about 60 minutes.

Tried repair of Creator and no difference.

Will uninstall and reinstall correct this issue?

First try installing the update for your video card drivers.

 

If that doesn't work, use software render from Tools- Options.

Reinstalled Creator, updated driver, burned another copy. It plays back fine in Cineplayer but 3 blurred lines when panning camera in Win Media player. Will try on a DVD player.

What does software setting do compared to hardware? Again raw file plays fine in Win Media player, DVD is terrible.

Some AVI files will not play with Win Media player due to codec issue. Any one solve that?

Back up and tell us what you want to do with the files - play on your computer -- CinePlay seems to work. If so, why do you want to worry about WMP? Play on a DVD? The software encoding is sometimes better if you have an underpowered computer or video card/chip.

 

Don't use AVI files; use mpg2 files. What do you want to do with AVI files anyway?

 

If you have issues with WMP, go to Microsoft for help.

I am archiving recorded video from my current Sony Camcorder and older VHS recorded video. I wish to play them on stand alone DVD players and watch on TV. It is strange that Cineplayer works and WMP does not.

 

My computer specs are, Intel ®Core i7CPU 930 @ 2.8GHz, 4 cores, 8 threads, 12GB Memory, ATI Radeon HD 5800 1 GB memory.

My older computer with a fraction of above specs and Creator 2009 made perfect DVD's. Creator crashed lots but results were fine.

 

Creator captures video in AVI files, and have always used AVI with differing results. Why would mpg2 make any difference in the final burned DVD? Creator works with all these files.

Yes, this version of WMP is performing poorly on my computer.

 

Tried the last DVD on another DVD player and it still has blurred lines whenever camera is panning. Then tried several other DVD's. There are perfect DVD's between blurred DVD's. I am baffled as to the cause. Same camera, tape, capture, computer, software, media and player, and so different results. Will try software render. Have a ticket in Roxio Support.

Did you know that all videos on a DVD are in a VOB format unless they are data files? VOB files are mpg2 type format.

 

Are you using Create DVD to make the videos or are you just copying the files to a DVD because you have a TV that will play those files.

 

What do the files look like when you play the panning section on your monitor with CinePlayer?

 

AVI is good for editing but take up a lot of space. They are converted to mpg2 during the final rendering.

The 'blurry pans' is an old issue and has to do with your Video Card! ...hence the suggestion to use Software Rendering instead of the default Hardware and elimante the Video Card from the equation...

 

Actually your video card is up to the task provided you uave updated both the drivers as well as the Catalyst software to the current 11.11 (this months) version - AMD

 

As Steve pointed out, DVD Movies are 'Authored' into an internation standard, not some random collection of files slapped on a disc! :lol:

Yes, sknis, I am aware of those facts. As I said in my first post, captured with Creator Pro 2011, edited in DVD, burned to dvd to be played on stand alone dvd player to TV. I have made over 100 dvd projects, with Creator 2011, 2009 and MYDVD. The previous 2 computers were a joke compared to this one.

They all look fine in Cineplayer. Several of the last 20 are blurred in WMP and dvd player. But not consistently in order. There are good dvd's after blurred ones all done with exactly the same hardware and settings. This video card seems to have issues. I had reinstalled Creator 2011 two days ago.

 

Jim, I updated both the drivers as well as the Catalyst software to the current 11.11, this morning and still the same blurred lines result! Did not help this card.

I burned a second dvd in software rendering and it plays fine in WMP and dvd player to TV. Quite disappointed with such a hyped ATI card!

 

I have a ticket on the issue with Roxio, will see how they reply.

 

Will call Dell last, perhaps a new video card.

Don't make it more than it really is...

 

Take a Project 1 hour long and time the Render for both Software and Hardware Rendering. I think you will find the difference is so small you won't even notice it. (let us know?)

 

The PC where I first noticed it on, had an On Board Video Chip. Even software render was not always enough and I finally bought a Video Card and disabled the on board chip!

 

Since I have gone to HD camcorders I have not seen that problem again, even with DVD outputs :huh:

 

Don't know why, don't miss it either :lol:

I see in catalyst control center there is a tab for trouble reports. Will run this by AMD to see if they know their fantastic cards are NOT working with Creator.

Yes, I will use software from now on, used both and did not notice much time difference. Quality results are equal, NO blurring.

Great to hear HD works for you, I am shopping for one too.

Thanks for the help.
