Won't Render My Video, Sits At "make Movie" For Hours

Question

I rendered one film yesterday, when my Xbox was set at low definition on accident. Now my Xbox settings are fixed and I made a longer film (6+ minutes) when I go to render it, I select:

 

Purpose: High Definition

 

Video file quality: AVCHD 1280x720/24p

 

It just sits there for hours and hours, clearly not rendering. When I rendered yesterday, it showed the film in the box, now the box is just black and the numbers aren't moving that were moving yesterday (Completed?)

 

I have Windows 7.

 

 

Edit: I forgot to say that when this is happening, my computer is only using a tiny portion of it's abilities, so it's not like it's my computer lagging that's causing this.

 

Edit x2: I've already set it to software instead of hardware in Tools > Options.

Best Bet would be a proper repair:

 

[indentUnplug the device and put it aside till later.

 

Turn off your Anti Virus, Firewalls, Registry Cleaners, etc. and insert your Roxio Disc, run Install.

 

Be sure you accept the offer to Check for Updates (this is for Roxio, not Windows)

 

When you reach the screen where Repair is offered, choose that!

 

Then turn your AV & Firewall back on and reboot.[/indent]

 

You should be able to use the Hardware Render setting which will help since your PC is right at the bottom edge of minimum requirements.

This issue was (temporarily?) solved when I searched around and found someone got a fix by restoring their computer to an earlier time. My computer had installed a Windows update the night after I had rendered the first clip. I'm concerned now, though, that a future update will cause the problem to re occur, as this has happened to several people who previously were able to render, from owners of a few weeks to a few months.

 

I mean, won't the same update re-cause the issue?

Not if you disable the auto updates. ;)

Why would I want to disable Windows Updates? :mellow: It keeps my computer up to date with everything on the 'net as well as protecting my computer.

Most "experts" recommend turning off the automatic updates to keep Windows from making automatic changes to your system which can screw up your system. I prefer to manually do the updates and then only those which apply to my system. Why would you want Microsoft install all sorts of programs that you don't use or need. Don't believe everything Microsoft tells you

Because I'm too ignorant to choose which updates apply to me ;) There is nothing worse than having to search for days to find the solution to an issue that wouldn't have happened with good software... I find the updates make this not happen. Until now. With Roxio software...

Uhhhh, read Post #3 of this thread. :blink:

 

Uhhhh... you are suggesting that I leave my computer vulnerable because Roxio software conflicts with programs that keep my computer in tip top shape and are used widely by people everywhere to maintain their computers. I suggest Roxio create software that doesn't force me to leave my computer vulnerable. Quality products don't cause these types of problems and are user-friendly for the average consumer. I assume this is why Roxio no longer does customer support, but forces people to pay them or wait around for days hoping someone knows how to fix their issue. :/

 

If I had known what I know now, I never would have bought this product.

In your case, I would suggest contacting Roxio and ask them what you need to do to get a refund. If you have had the RGC for less than 30 days, and you purchased it from Roxio, it should not be a problem getting the refund.

Do a google search om "automatic updates" or something similar and you will see why many recommend to disable the automatic updates. Nobody suggests not doing the updates but that it is better to do it manually and see what Microsoft is doing to your system. Not all updates will keep your computer in tip-top shape since some will make some programs incompatible with your system and this does not only apply to Roxio.

 

You have been given some advice but if you want to ignore it that is your option.
