Re: 5-1 Surround Sound Audio

I've never actually done anything with 5.12 surround in Video Studio... I think it should work. Have you experimented with the surround mixer? On pages 118 & 119 of the user manual there is a section called Using The Surround Sound Mixer . When you get the surround mixer open, there is a box showing...

Re: Subtitles

I've never done that but I think Muxman (Free - $35 USD) can probably do it. It doesn't look like a user-friendly program, but I think it's very powerful. Most of turorials I've looked-through in the past have involved using a subtitle extraction utility to extract the subtitles to a text file (with...

Re: DVD movie factory on a MAC

This is really a user-to-user forum, and although there are a couple of Corel employees that participate, it's not a good place to send suggestions to Corel. Is Corel aware that there is no DVD authoring software available on the Mac? None! I didn't know that! I'm surprised, since The Mac is kind-of...

Re: Re-editing problem

...but it all plays back flawlesly in several HW and SW players. It's not that unusual for a file to play OK, but cause trouble when you try to edit or convert it. I assume there is a glitch in the file and players & player-software are more tolerant. If you used Smart Render , the rendering might ...

Re: Major issues when creating DVD

Also another thing I just thought of, when I create the DVD it plays fine in any computer that I put it in. OK... I think it's your DVD player. Do you have any experience with playing "burned" discs on that player? How old is that player? The rumor is that older more-expensive players often have tr...

Re: Major issues when creating DVD

There are a couple of possibilities... The -R wont even load up. Do any of these discs play OK on the computer? 1. You might have a "physical" problem. That is, Video Studio is generating good data, but that data is not getting burned onto the DVD properly, or it's not getting read properly when the...

Re: Entry level animation package?

Blender is FREE, but I don't think it's "entry level". I haven't used it, so I can't say how easy it is to get started and do something simple, and I can't make a recommendation. I like the price and the examples on the website are impresive!

Re: DVD Player Won't Play DVD

The "rumor" is that older more-expensive players tend to have trouble, whereas the new super-cheap Chinese players will "play anything". Some players have trouble with all "burned" (homemade) discs. And, some players have trouble with some of the formats. i.e. Some players can play DVD-R, but have t...

Re: Video Capture Copyright Error

You should use the capture software that came with your capture device. It's hit-and-miss when you randomly mix capture hardware & capture software. If you have a real EzCAP it came with ArcSoft software. It doesn't come with Corel software, and as far as I know it does not work with Video Studio. I...

Re: Runtime error

It usually has something to do with the audio/video file(s) you are feeding-in... It could be a small glitch (slight corruption) in the file, or it could just ba a format or (format variation) that Movie Factory has trouble with. What format are your files? Are they the same format, and from the sam...

Re: Video Studio BluRay Problems

I'm not making Blu-Ray discs, but I'll suggest something anyway. Try separating your editing & disc authoring steps... Render your complete Blu-Ray compatible file 1st, then re-load the file and create menus as a new project. The timing codes in your video-file might be messed-up, and rendering a ne...

Re: VSP-X3 capturing failed - files corrupt

What kind of camcorder do you have? Have you used this particular camera with Video Studio in the past? If you have a MiniDV camera connected via firewire, you can capture with WinDV [/u] [/color] (FREE!!!). If you have a camera that records to an internal hard drive or solid state memory, and conne...

Re: VS not recognize full length of video

There's probably some slight corruption in the audio/video file. (Player software is often more tolerant than editing software.) Re-capturing might help. Or, try capturing in a different format and/or try a different catpure tool. (The less-compressed formats are generally eaiser to work with... i.e...

Re: PNG JPG Question

I actually think you are on the right track with PNG. JPEG does not support transparancy, but PNG does. It's been awhile since I've done anything like that, so I can't help you with the details, but the transparancy is called the "alpha channel". I usually create a 4x3 or 16x9 solid color background...
