In my experience, DVDA has not been picky at all. I have an A03 so I'm limited to "-" media but it has worked with a couple different brands.

As for using another program to burn, yes that is very doable. Just add the Audio_TS and Video_TS folders created by DVDA into the other program and tell it to burn the DVD. I have, on occasion, used Prassi PrimoDVD to burn the folders created by DVDA but now use DVDA to burn almost all the time.

Oddly enough I find myself dragging the effect from the effects palette the the clip- not that I need the animated references for the various effects. Maybe a left-over habit from my Premiere days. lol

OK, I tried one last time with the TDK in DVDA and it actually let me choose the device this time but the drive speed window was empty. I clicked 'finish' anyway and I got an, "Error 0x8004e0c8" which I am assuming is the missing speed setting.

So, I burned the _TS folders on the TDK disc with Roxio 6 and it worked fine. It plays in 2 of my 3 DVD players, the third being a first gen Toshiba that I didn't expect to play in anyway, whew!
I bet it's my Plextor being picky & not DVDA.

It sure was gratifying to see the finished DVD on my 36" TV.


Thanks Don & Ed!

Edward, thanx for your help... but I think I have logged the clips, and I think I have a device control enabled.

So Iīll write every step of what Iīm doing to see if you see something I canīt.


1.- Open VEgas
2.- FILE -> CAPTURE VIDEO
3.- Name my tape, donīt capture clips now
(DEVICE STOPPED)
4.- go to ADVANCED CAPTURE
Device works just fine... I can control the cam from Video Capture with no problem. Can set in and outs.. capture them.. play them, go to specific timecode.. etc..

5.- Select Timecode IN and OUT.
6.- Push LOG IN/OUT button. (the clip name on top changes to TAPENAME - Clip 001 and so).
7.- Repeat 5 and 6 as as many times as needed.
8.- TRANSPORT -> ADVANCED CAPTURE... and....

BATCH CAPTURE is grey. No batch capturing for me...

Iīm using a XM2, just in case there is an issue there.

And reasking a little here..

Is there anyway to use a Text file or XLS or something to do a batch capture, without having to type in, or select each clip to capture????

Sounds like you are doing things right. However, I don't understand step #8. As soon as you are done with #7 is when I hit Batch Capture.

DOH!

Never mind... my mistake, it must have been my younger years of excess passing a bill on whatīs left of my brain...

Iīve been using VEGAS for more than a few months now, and I didnīt know there was a CLIP EXPLORER option on VIDEO CAPTURE... And I also didnīt have the AUTOMATIC MARK FOR BATCH CAPTURE thing selected...

Mental notes: "F1 is my friend"... "Some people spend many hours making the help files.. SO JUST READ IT"....

So thanx for your help.. I got it covered now.. you could just delete this thread and save me some public humilliation...

One last thing..
What about the magic thing that will let me use a text file or a xls file to do the batch capture withou marking ins and outs manually?

i've been having similar issues. i use nero to burn my DVDs after DVD-Arch preps it on a folder. but if i use DVD-Arch itself to burn anything, it's all blank, won't burn. i have the liteon ldw-451s DVD burner. i mostly use DVD-R.

Not Recognizing 24p

Hey I have had Vegas for a half a year and i cannot figure out How come when i capture some of my video off my AG-DVX100 it tells me my video was captured in 29 frames a second instead of 24 or sumthing like that. Why is that? Is the picture degrading because of it?

Any Plug-ins?

I am wondering how come there are not many plug-ins for Vegas. I have not seen any type of after affects or any special prgram as a plug in for Vegas. Sonic Foundry or shall i say sony has not created any type of after affects program thing for vegas 4.0. Why is that?

speeding up footage

I noticed that Vegas "maxes out" when speeding up playback rate at 4.000. Is there any way to increase the speed? Thanks

Options > Preferences > Editing > JKL shuttle speed. Set to max. You'll get x20 playback.

Are you trying to make the finished video go faster, is that what you're saying? I thought you were talking about playback as in preview as i JKL.

When you hit the ceiling you can render to avi and put the rendered event on your timeline, then speed it up once more. You can do this several times.
