VideoStudio • Corel VSX7 App crash module ntdll.dll

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 14:07
Hello, I decided to start a new topic, even though some discussion has been made on application crashes but somewhat mixed with other topics, and only addressed by members.

After being working with VSX7, and having installed SP1, the following error message repeatedly appears when rendering DVD format. I haven't changed video/images source. It started some time after having installed SP1.

I'm sorry to transcribe the error message in Spanish:

I have already uninstalled VSX7 and SP1, and reinstalling VSX7 only didn't fix the problem.

I hope you can help.

Thank you very much.

VideoStudio • Re: How to enable hardware Encoding acceleration

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 11:58
This is starting to bother me. Nvidia and AMD/ATI both supposedly offer hardware acceleration through either CUDA or OpenCL. Yes, in the editing preferences my acceleration options aren't greyed out, but whether they're enabled or not doesn't make any difference in how fast a video renders. Isn't that what hardware acceleration is supposed to do?

In Catalyst Control Center there's an accelerated video conversion setting under Video, but that doesn't seem to do anything.

I found some other threads discussing these things, but I can't find a definitive answer to "Can my AMD 6870 can accelerate video rendering and how to enable it through both the VS software and AMD software on my computer". I can check the boxes in VS edit settings, but nothing changes. It's like my video card software isn't configured correctly.

Limiting factor in your case is probably the HDD. "Green" drives take less power but they are slower. CPU has to wait for the files to be written and read. More RAM always help, because of the caching. There is no free lunch.
Open "Resource Monitor" and you will see.


I've found that using a faster hard drive will only increase video scrubbing speed. When going from the WD Green to my SSD, my projects render at the same speed. The preview project and when I scroll through it is what sees the big difference. I deal with giant lossless AVI files from Dxtory, it's too bad I don't have enough space on my SSD to do my work there routinely. My i5 CPU usage is pretty much 90%+ when rendering.

You can monitor the usage with GPU-Z.

Rendering clips.
There is an option to Save Trimmed Video, select the clip in the timeline and go to File – Save trimmed video , this should render the selected clip to a new version using the clips properties.


When I save trimmed video is saves it automatically into a default user Video Studio folder on the local disc. I see no option to change the save directory or for the individual save, is there something I'm missing? I don't like having to save stuff to my small SSD, even temporarily, when I have a 1TB and 3 TB HD.



Another thing I'd like to bring up is that there is no elapsed time clock keeping track of how long it's taken to render a video. There's only a % complete progress bar. With VS x4 I'm not able to minimize the window once rendering is started until it's complete unless I kill the program in task manager. I can ignore not being able to minimize the window while working, but no elapsed time seems like a major oversight for the sake of testing speed. Please tell me I'm not seeing something while I'm rendering?

Hi
Just to add
To select project playback click the word “Project” adjacent to the play button

Also clicking the top of the timeline, (Mouse icon changes to a mouse) along the time rule will set the curser and play from that point

Hi

Regarding the “Visual C++ message”

On the last page if you were to select “Create a Bluray Folder” and not “Create Disc” the process should complete saving the disc data to a BDMV folder on your hard drive.

If that completes ok then the error is probably related to the actual burning of the disc and your BD burner or Discs????

At least you will know that VS is completing the process

Hi

I don’t have any other suggestions, if you are not willing to reset the program or re-install then we are in limbo. I do understand that you are in the middle of a project and that you do not wish to make things worse.
For piece of mind you may be best to wait till you have completed the project.

-------------------------------------

You can use the Smart Package process to save/backup your project.

You can use Settings - Library Manager to export your library, then Import Library at a later date.
However the program may not allow you to use the Import Library option, you do run the risk of loosing your libraries content.
That would not affect your projects as library clips are not associated with the library.
You would have to re-load your library ages again.

If you have two different sound clips in two separate sound tracks then both will play at the same time PROVIDING you select to play in 'Project' mode - if you are in 'clip' mode only the selected clip will play.

Ken, what do you mean by “converting the AVCHD to a Blu-Ray compatible mpeg-2 “? As I’m happy with the AVCHD discs burned in VideoStudio and Blu-Ray videos edited in VS and burned in PowerDirector at 18 Mbps, I wonder what would be achieved?

With your AVCHD project in the timeline, you go to Share and then choose mpeg-2 as the output format. Then click on the downward pointing arrow to the right of the Profile window and down towards the bottom of the drop down menu you will see 1920 x 1080 50i 35 Mbps. That is Blu-Ray compatible mpeg-2. And you notice that it has a bitrate almost twice that available for AVCHD output. That notionally would mean the quality might be higher, but as I also said above, AVCHD produces high quality output in a much more compressed space. So you end up with a very similar quality for a considerably smaller file if you choose AVCHD instead of mpeg-2 Blu-Ray.

I'm trying to figure something out....Is it possible to have 2 sounds playing at once? I have 2 wav files and I'd like for one of the wav files to play while another is playing. I tried creating a second music track and put one beneath the other but only the top played. Is what I'm trying to do possible and if so, how? Thank you!!!

I'm afraid I have no idea about that debug message: don't think I have ever seen it before. And a quick Google search reveals it is a common problem in many other circumstances, but attributable to Microsoft. However, the suggested reasons and solutions are all gobbledegook to me!

As for the quality of hybrid vs Blu-Ray discs, well, they should be equal if using the same AVCHD video. As you would be aware, a hybrid disc in fact contains a full Blu-Ray Folder with the same architecture as that on a full Blu-Ray disc. The only limitation is the amount of video that can be squeezed onto a DVD. But as mentioned above, burning an 18 Mbps AVCHD will allow around 25 minutes to be burned as a hybrid disc.

Notionally, converting the AVCHD to a Blu-Ray compatible mpeg-2 will allow a much higher bitrate to be used, and normally bitrate equates to quality. But the whole point of AVCHD is that while more highly compressed, and thus a smaller file size than mpeg-2, the algorithms are supposed to make the quality of such AVCHD equal to that of higher bitrate mpeg-2. Clear as mud???

Hi Phil

You should not have any problems in burning either a Avchd hybrid disc to standard DVD or a Bluray disc using Video Studio.

You created a HD video file (bluray compliant ) and used that to burn either a AVCHD or BD. By creating the file first overcomes the long render during the burner process. (Convert Title)

If you did not have a compliant video file and choose to burn your project files then the project would be converted prior to burning the disc/s.

Either way you choose to burn a disc there should be no problems and burning should complete successfully.

I was advised to burn a Blu-ray Folder, play that for quality check, use Img Burn to burn the actual disc. Actually that’s the process I used for standard definition DVD’s.

The error “Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library: Debug Assertion Failed” really needs to be addressed that is not normal.
Hopefully Ken will have some idea as to the cause of that error?

Disc quality, I am on the same learning curve as yourself and have only burned two BD’s, prior to that I burned Hybrids, yes I think the quality of the BD is better than the Hybrid DVD.

Blu-ray properties can be the same as the AVCHD Hybrid settings, the only difference would be the Data Rate restriction of the Hybrid disc.

Hi again Ken,

All is good, my new Sony BDPS1200 plays blu ray and AVCHD DVD discs.

I produced an AVCHD disc in VideoStudio Pro X7 and it played successfully.

However, to burn to blu ray I first had to export from VS to computer hard drive in AVCHD format and then burn in Cyberlink PowerDirector 11 because the necessary settings could be chosen in that program.

When I tried to burn to blu ray in VS Pro X7 I received an obscure message from Windows: Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library: Debug Assertion Failed! After retrying, the program closed.

So I googled burn .m2ts to Blu Ray. There were lots of messages about the need to use specialized conversion programs, but A T Romano posted in the Premiere Elements forum that if you imported a rendered AVCHD movie with H.264 1920 x 1080i settings you could burn to Blu Ray in Premier Elements.

I found that I could choose those settings in Cyberlink PowerDirector 11, so I imported the file that had been rendered in VS Pro X7 to that program and successfully burned to BD-R and the disc played nicely on the stand alone Sony blu ray player as well as on my computer.

I know this won't help VS users who want or need to make blu ray rather than AVCHD discs. So, I guess I have two questions on their behalf.

Is there any improvement in quality on blu ray next to AVCHD discs? (I know that blue ray discs take longer productions).

Can those H.264 1920 x 1080i settings be chosen to burn to blu ray in VS Pro X7?

Regards, Phil

OK, it opened and played fine when I tested it as a new project. I copied the clip to my library and opened my current project. When I tried to open the clip's attributes, the program stopped working. When I put the clip on the the timeline as part of my current project and tried to play it, the program stopped working in that situation also.

Once you're happy with all your various audio clips, transitions etc. then render just the audio track (called bouncing) via the share tab.

Use the .wav file render to avoid repeatedly compressing an already compressed audio file, then import the resulting 'bounced' track back into CVS, either on a spare track if you are a bit uncertain and want to retain your original audio clip tracks (which can later be muted by disabling those tracks using the 'eye' tab), or by just deleting them if you are confident that all's well, and replace them with your new bounced track.

This new single track can then be edited in any way you want - including adjusting its audio level

Hi erdna

Unfortunately not, there is no options to setting audio levels to multiple clips, yes it would be a useful feature.
There is the option to Copy and Paste Attributes but that does not work for levels but does apply fades.

Hi

Thanks for the feedback, very glad you have managed to burn a good disc.
As for types I did mention in an earlier reply to using Ritek G05 discs, printable face sourced from the internet.

Good luck
