Question

Hi,

I am new.I have Roxio Creator 2012 Pro with Windows 7.

I have looked arround on the community site. I have created a slideshow using 355 photos, divided in 6 parts, using effects, transitions and music in videowave.

So 6 parts and named in videowave as paris10nov.dmsm,paris11nov1.dmsm,paris11nov2.dmsm,paris12nov.dmsm,paris13nov.dmsm and paris14nov.dmsm. Setting up my productions in 16:9 and PAL, background black and show etire source. Now I have burned a test DVD in MyDVD an the most of my images are with black bars showing.

Now I have tried to make 1 entire file of my 6 parts in videowave,and undo any mistakes but I can't add a dmsm-file in videowave. What can I do ????

After I must maybe created menus backgrouns an music. Can I change my production in 4:3 and maybe Fill screen and how doing it ?????

Thanks for yours answers.

??? without knowing what the originals were or seeing your screen can't even begin to guess :huh:

 

Black Bars? on the top? bottom? sides? through the middle??? (info on Posting Pics - HERE)

 

Sadly, if I understand your problem, the fix will not be easy :(

 

Next time, have a disc or two of DVD RW on hand and TEST before you paint yourself into a corner ;)

Jim,

Thanks for yours suggestions.

My problem is : with my Test DVD I have seen looking on TV many black bars at the sides. Next time maybe better doing the settings in 4:3 on PAL. Can I change in this production (Paris2011) the blackground black and also fill the screen with my images ??? And if positive, how i do this. ???? Many thanks again. Sorry for my English.

Biggrand.

Your English is GREAT! Certainly better than any attempt I could make to in yours, Dutch, French or German are not any languages that I excel it :lol:

 

Let's talk aspect ratio first, then on to your problem...

 

Almost all TV's these days are 'wide screen' so it is best to just set our camcorders and digital cameras to 16:9 to prevent problems in processing.

 

In Roxio you have an Editor (VideoWave) and an Authoring (MyDVD) program.

 

In VideoWave you want to make sure you start with a Wide screen Project!

Then make sure you have the settings the way you want them:

These settings must be set BEFORE any picture or movie clip is added!

 

In MyDVD you want to make sure you have it set to Wide screen. (this effects the Menus Only! The movies, pics or Projects that you add will be what they are. This setting is for Menus only.

 

If the black bars are not excessive, ignore them ;) Almost all commercial DVD and BD Movies have black bars since they use a different aspect ratio so why worry about it?

 

In VideoWave with 2012 you can select each movie and with a right click you can change the way it handles non-wide screen for that particular selection ;)

 

Another way to handle it is to use a color panel (instead of black) or a custom panel.

 

Play with it a little and see if it will be better to start new or fix what you have ;)
