VideoStudio • VSX7 Preview Bug

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 06:17
Has anyone else noticed the following bug?

When playing preview in HD - no problem.
Pause playback - preview then reverts to displaying SD - hit HD button 'OFF' - then preview switches to display HD.
In other words when preview is paused it displays the opposite effect to that indicated by the HD button!

Also add where these files are stored and if this location is still exactly the same, ie drive letters haven't changed.

Hi

Thanks for the feedback, interesting, there is a recent post regarding external drives here, maybe you could give your opinion on their use…..
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=54143

Working Folders……….
Just to add if you are not aware ---- there is two working folders…..

One
For the general editing, can be allocated via edit timelines Preferences F6

Two (Corels little secret)
From the burner module, this is used for temporary files (DMF_TEMP) used in the burner render processes, can be allocated from (lower left icon ) F6 Preferences

Anyway its good you have found the cause…………..

Since you have told us nothing about the video in the project, where it came from and what editing you have done to it, it is impossible to say why you might be getting this message. So let's start at the beginning. Please right click on the video in the timeline and select Properties. (Do this for each video type if your video came from different sources.) Then either copy the Properties box here or take a screen grab of it and upload it here. Unfortunately, your photobucket image doesn't add any information of this type...

VideoStudio • Re: VSX7 - Convert step got some problems

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 15:31
I have checked again the problem and found out:

1. The file format is PAL DVD, while the burning module in the x7 was set to NTSC.
2. The "Do not convert compliant MPEG files" was ticked
So now every thing is OK and I have succeed to burn.

Thanks a lot Canuck and Ken

"Convert step got some problems" usually indicates that the program is trying to convert whatever you put in the burning module to DVD compatibility as per the Properties contained in the Project Settings icon of the burning module (second icon from left in the bottom left of the burning screen.) Your video file is, of course, already totally DVD-compatible as far as I can see. That suggests that maybe (1) the Properties shown in that Project Settings box are different and (2) the little box below those settings -- "Do not convert compliant MPEG files" -- is not ticked. So check those...

Are you completely sure you inserted the new mpeg-2 into the burning module and not the VSP file? It is usually the latter which brings up "Convert step got some problems"...

properties.jpgThank you very much for your quickly reply.
In the x6 program in the Share step I choose Create Video File - DVD Video (16:9). This is exactly what I have done for several years in x6 without any problem to burn them.
attached is the properties of that file

I have found the solution. It has nothing to do with burning or file format.

Normaly when I worked on a project I have my PC connected to external 2 HDD's. This results in "preferences" with a "workfolder" G:\.

When I wanted to burn my project to my PC with only external 1 HDD connected the errour came up. So it was not possible to create a menu or even burning. The programma stopped.
I think the reason for that was that my external HDD was F:\ and not G:\ on the moment. Going to the location of "preferences" a warning messages came up.

To solve this I connected my both external HDD's and everything worked fine.

It looks like a stuppid thing but, how strange can this be?

Hope to help others with this explanation.
Anyway everybody thanks for their help, even this was into another direction.

VideoStudio • Blu-Ray rendering errors

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 13:27
I recently up graded form VS X4 (running without problems) to VS X7 Ultimate.
At first I fund VS X7 would not run using the on board video chip set.
Install MSI NX8500GT video board now OK but when rendering to Blu-Ray disk or hard disk
VS X7 fails with an error message (Debug Assertion Failure, Line: 155) about half way through the process every time.
Corel customer support indicates this is a problem with my system only.
They tested my video clip and did not find any issues.
Product specifications do not show any special requirement for the video board.
Can someone recommend a known working video card that I could try?

Video card NX8500GT with the latest F/W
LG Blu-Ray burner with the latest F/W
VS X7 Ulimate 64 Bit with the latest patches

Thank You,
Ben

What format is the file? "DVD video file" doesn't tell us very much. Perhaps a bit more detail on exactly what you are doing might help.

If the file you created is a "DVD compliant mpg" file then X7 will have no problem accepting it and there would be no conversion involved.

VideoStudio • VSX7 - Convert step got some problems

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 13:07
Hello,
I have created a DVD video file in my previous X6 PRO. Now I have tried to burn it to a DVD disk in my new X7 PRO, and I have got the message: "Convert step got some problems" so the burn failed. It doesn't make sense that X7 doesn't recognize files that has been created in X6. So what could be the problem?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you,
Abraham

Hi Ken

You would have to re-install the program to remove the Service Pack.

Are you able to provide a sample video, maybe upload to DropBox or similar sharing site, we can then test the file to see if we have the same problems and hopefully confirming that SP1 is the culprit.

By the way SP1 seems to have been removed from the US Corel site, yet the last time I looked was available from the UK?
I have had SP1 installed for a while with no problems, don’t know if problems are related to NTSC installed programs????

Just a possibility - are you operating VSX7 with service pack 1 installed?

If you are then try uninstalling it, as it appears to cause more problems than it was designed to solve with respect to .MOV files.

When you want to continue editing the easiest way is to open up VideoStudio first - then go "File >> Open Project" and browse to the .vsp file and select it - - or choose the project name from the bottom of the file drop down if it is present - just like most other windows programmes,

Your project should then open and populate the timeline.

Hi
Can you tell us what type of disc you are burning a DVD or AVCHD or Bluray, I assume a DVD

To burn a DVD you need a Mpeg2 video file.

Your project has to be rendered to create that type of file, I did notice you said you created a HDV, that file is not suitable for burning a DVD and as such will be converted to Mpeg2 prior to burning.

We have two options in burning a disc…………

Option 1/
With the project open in the timeline doing Share Create Disc DVD opens the burner module.
Just after hitting Burn the process starts with Convert Title, this is probably where you are having problems, the Convert Title stage is rendering the project to a temporary Mpeg2, this is used to burn the disc.

Option 2 / ( I always use this process -- recommended)
If you have errors during the burning process then you are advised to create that Mpeg2 yourself.
From the edit timeline Share Create Video File DVD, this renders the project to Mpeg 2 video file.
If that process fails then you have issues with the actual project.
Once the Mpeg2 file has been created, play the file to check quality.

To burn a disc using the Mpeg2
Start a new project—nothing in the timeline
Share Create Disc – Add Media – Add Video File --- browse for the Mpeg2 created above.
On the final window, after Pressing burn the process will start with Convert Title there will be no Convert Title as you are using a compliant Mpeg2 file.

Are you saying using Option 2 using a Mpeg2 file as above also causes the errors.???

VideoStudio • MOV audio problem

Tue, 07/15/2014 - 20:16
MOV file clips opened in VS X7, do not have the original audio. I have played these files using QuickTime and there is no problem with the audio. I didn't have this problem in VS X6. Any ideas?

Ken,

I don't see how your suggestion is going to help Peter. He states that when he opens the project file nothing appears in his timeline.

With the named project in the timeline, before you go to File – Save and exit, you can enter where you were in the project up via the time code. This is the digital number set that will display right down to a frame accurate time .It represents the time in hours, minutes, seconds then frames. So if you make a note of where you are in the project, you will be able to enter that value in when you next open the project and go straight to it.
