Lose Audio If I Edit With 'edit Video Automatically'


Dave Garrett

Question

Hope someone can tell me if I'm doing something stupid as I'm a novice with Roxio. Have a video that I'm editing before going on to create a video file/dvd. After a number of iterations I've found that if I edit exclusively with Roxio VideoWave (i.e. taking the 'Edit Video - Advanced') then the original audio remains fine. If however I use the 'Edit Video - Automatically' route initially then the soundtrack is lost. I specifically want to use this route as editing out unwanted frames is far simpler.

Can anyone tell me please if there is something simple I'm overlooking ?

Don't use "Edit automatically", it is next to useless since you have almost no control over anything. Problems with audio have been frequently reported when using this method. Stick with Edit advanced even though the learning curve is longer.

I don't know why you would want to use Cinemagic to remove unwanted frames. It actually removes "scenes" and you have no control over frame removal at all

Hi guys - thanks for your comments. I had an old video tape that I wanted to move to DVD and edit . Linked old VCR to a DVD Recorder, copied / finalised and ended up with a DVD containing a VIDEO_TS folder with 4 .ifo and .vob files. This played back quite happily through a BluRay player and PC. Loaded video into Roxio and again could review it quite happily within VideoWave with audio just fine. After a lot of testing I realised that each time I went back to the original source and loaded it into CineMagic , whilst the video was fine I lost audio (tried previewing in both CineMagic & VideoWave). However, if I edit solely with VideoWave then everything is fine.

What I liked in CineMagic was the ability to remove scenes as I have dozens to remove. It seemed a lot faster than the equivalent in VideoWave.

The 'Edit - Automatic', or CineMagic as that module app is called, is doing what it was designed to do by removing the native audio from your source file.

 

It's main design, or purpose, is basically to create a 'highlight' type of video that you add a soundtrack to, such as music and/or narration. When it does this, it chops up the source video in such a way that if the native audio was left intact, it would probably sound pretty wierd. For example, people talking would be cut off in mid-sentence/word.

 

Granted the term 'Edit-automatic' is misleading in what it actually is for. It does work great for what they sdesigned it to do, like take a 30 min video and create a short 3 - 5 min highlight clip from it.

 

There is nothing you can do or change to allow CineMagic to retain the native audio. You'll have to stick with VideoWave for that.
