Videowave Unstable With Dvd Import Into Project


BenGriff
 Share

Question

Imported a homemade DVD into a Videowave project and videowave crashes with any attempted changes/editing.

 

Videowave is stable when a 3 gig mpeg (only) is imported to a project, unstable if a 2 gig DVD.

 

Please don't give me the generic "Reload"/"Driver update" etc... that has all been done. Additionally, I have turned off all firewalls and still Videowave crashes (only with DVD imported)

 

Win 7 pro, processor 2.4 Ghz, RAM 4 gig.

Crashing/unstable importing a 2GB file but stable with a 3GB file makes no sense!

 

What has been done?

 

Are you following this 'Preparing your computer for installing Roxio products'?

I COMPLETELY agree it doesn't make sense!

 

First you ask "What has been done?"

1) I tried inserting a file from a DVD directly...Videowave crashed.

2) I open the DVD file and saved it on my desktop, then opened Videowave and added the .iso file to the timeline, was prompted regarding the 40 minute movie, the movie loaded I selected the movie clicked the split button...Videowave Crashed

3) I read the blogs here in support, unistalled EMC 10, updated video driver and ActiveX reinstalled EMC 10, repeated step 2. Videowave crashed.

4) I set my firewall to "Allow all traffic" repeated step 2, Videowave crashed.

5) I loaded the .iso file to the timeline, then clicked "save", VideoWave saved it. I tried to split it, Videowave crashed.

6) I reopened Videowave and the production file clicked "Output As" and created a MPEG-2 file.

7) I created a new project and loaded the MPEG-2 file it allowed me to use all functions (split etc..)

This is why I concluded it is a snag with DVD files..perhaps IE9 related?

I would like to use the DVD file instead of the MPEG file any suggestions

I can't follow anything that you are doing.

 

You will have to explain with some detail exactly what you are doing in step 1 and 2 for a start.

What is the file structure on the DVD? What file from the DVD are you inserting?

What do you mean by "open the DVD file and saved it on my desktop"?

You cannot add a "iso" file to the timeline so I don't know what you are doing there? A iso file is not a video file.

The firewall has nothing to do with anything

Sorry you have difficulty understanding me.

 

A DVD is a video movie and Videowave is a video movie editing software. So what I mean in step 1 is I put the video movie file from a DVD into Videowave trying to have VideoWave use the video file from the DVD disc directly. That didn't work and VideoWave crashed. (#2)I then opened all of files on the DVD (The .BUP, .IFO, and .VOB files-These are types of DVD video files) and transfered them to my computer as a file. This way the VideoWave program is not trying to edit through the DVD Drive on my computer. (When I said ".iso" in my 2nd description, I meant ".ifo" sorry for the typo). This was my 1st attempt to narrow down the problem.

 

Lastly, I agree the firewall has nothing to do with the problem. Disabling the firewall is advise I recieved from Roxio support when I had a rendering issue years ago with a different version of EMC.

I know what a DVd is and what Videowave is used for.

 

The only video files on a proper videoDVD are the "vob" files. The ifo files contain no video whatsover but only the navigation instruction, chapter points etc. The "bup" files are simply backups of the "ifo" files. Your "iso" typo caused real confusion.

 

Trying to use the video directly from the DVD is a very poor idea. Use Windows explorer and copy the Video_TS folder from the DVD to your hard drive. Launch Videowave and using the "add task" navigate to the Video_TS folder and add it.

I tried what you indicated. I copied the video_ts to my hard drive. Videowave doesn't have an "add task", but I think you mean "add photo/video" in the "add content" section of the "task pane". I did that and the video loads on the timeline. If I select it and try to "trim" or "split" the selected item, videowave crashes. Videowave gets hung up playing or previewing the file also, but sometimes can work through that before crashing.

 

Suggestions?

Perhaps 4 gig RAM is not enough for .vob files editing?

 

What kind of computer? Laptop, desktop or what? How much free space on the hard drive? Done a defrag lately?

 

What does "videowave crashed" mean? Is there any error message? Are you always using the same video files? If yes and the fact that it works sometimes seems to indicate that the problem is with your system. What video card do you have?

 

Another thing to try is to change the vob extension to mpg (you can always change the extension back later) and add the mpg files to the time line.

(vob files are actually mpg files)

HP Laptop defrag is at 0%. 250G

 

I thought about the memory issue and freed up 125G or about half the hard drive. I assume that is enough.

 

When I say VideoWave "crashed" I mean I get an error message that says: "VideoWave has stopped working. A problem caused Videowave to stop working correctly please close the program" with a transluesent foggy white screen. I have tried different .vob files without improvement & as I said, I was able to load the vob file into the timeline and output as an mpg-2 file, then use the new mpg file.

 

My VideoCard is an NVIDIA NVS 5100M and I updated the driver Friday in one of my early attempts to fix this problem. I am running 32-bit Windows 7 pro with IE9. I know 32-bit limits RAM somewhat? I have read IE9 problems too?

 

When I changed the extension from .vob to .mpg I recieved this message. "The files you selected contain missing or invalid video streams and have not been added." Good idea though!

It also appears you don't have EMC any longer. What do I buy to get VideoWave type upgrade that will work with Win 7 pro?

 

Depends - if you want somethign similar to EMC, just look at Creator 2012 or Creator 2012 Pro. If you want something less, look at something like Video Lab. Go to the top of this page and selectProducts and look at what is available.

 

Corel just bought Roxio so you can look at what they have also (if you want to keep it in the family).
