It should run for as long as the movie lasts, if it then repeats it may show a
slight hiccup. Are you running the latest update for DVDA 3 (3.0a)?

With what are you playing this DVD? If you can try it on both your computer
(with a software DVD player like WinDVD or PowerDVD) and a couple of
external players. This to see if the problem is with the disc or with the player.

How To SetUp Vegas - VideoEditing WorkStation (from Windows to Start working)

Just...

1 Hardware - all partitions of all physical Hard Drives should be in NTFS file system
2 When you install new, or formatting old OS - at formatting do not use Quick format, and when you Install on new partition on/or new HDD - never use Quck format

After finishing installation you need install in the following order:
1 Mother Board drivers - first chipset drivers, second - all others drives
2 VGA Drivers
3 Microsoft .NET Frimework 1.1 SP-1 (includet on WindowsXP SP-2 Integrated CD, on Vegas 6 CD, or you always will be download it from Microsoft Corporation web site)
4 DirectX 9.0c or later (inclueded on WindowsXP Service Pack-2, on Vegas 6 CD, or in Microsoft web site)
5 AntiVirus Software

After that all critical updates from Microsoft Windows Updates site

Next - codecs and Software
Codecs
1) Install DV codec, exsample, MainConcept
2) DivX - if you use DivX/XviD files in your projects, and/or use compressions in to. If you compress on to, exsample, in to DivX only - install only this codec, becouse DivX will open XviD files without problems.
3) Install AC3 ACM Decompressor - for viewing files with ac3 sounds, and... to OPEN ac3 audio and VOB files in Vegas (Stereo, or 2.1 only)
4) Windows Midia codec
5) NEVER dont use codec-pacs (example - Nimo, K-Lite, etc...)

Software
WinRAR - supported all archive-formats (RAR, ZiP, ACE, etc...)
WinAMP or other audio player
Multimedia Video Player - I'm use Light Alloy - its small and quickly, you can use BS Player (I never use WMP becous he wery hard)
QuickTime - to use *.mov files in tour projects
Power DVD - to viewing DVD, Why Power DVD? Becouse it simmulate hardware DVD players - if i mount DVD Image in to my virtual DVD (Im use Daemon Tools) and it work property - as im sure 100 % - on home DVD-player its will work.


After this install Software your use (pictures viewers (example - ACDSee, PicaView and etc...), photoeditors and other)

After This just install you favorite NLE software - if you all install propertly you never see any problems and you software will work property and you never see crashes

Sorry for my english

In your second section you need to include the .NET Framwork 1.1 SP1 update and DirectX 9.0c (the current version)

Technically, NONE of the "Codec" section is needed. I don't see a reason to install a MainConcept DV codec when I'm going to be using the Sony codec anyway, for example. Same with DivX - don't touch it, don't need it.

Otherwise, it appears to be a decent list and order of install.

I don't think you would really have problems doing a quick format.

Quote:
1) Install DV codec, exsample, MainConcept
You don't need to do this. As well, you don't want to use it accidentally because the various DV codecs may handle chroma smoothing/interpolation and color space conversions differently.

To add to your list:
You may want to partition the drive your operating system is on. For example:
Partition A (10GB or more) - for the OS
Partition B (10-20GB) - put program files and my documents here. (It takes a few tweaks to move those things to this partition.
Partition C (the rest) - store video and large files here. Avoid putting small files here to prevent fragmentation issues.

If you partition your drive this way, you can re-install windows without having to lose your data.

Im use Canopus Playback_only codec becouse I have video coded in it, and Vegas d'nt understand video in this files.

For what i need MC DV codec? - to open and work with Vegas video files in Virtual Dub (sometimes it it is necessary)

Besides is i recommended to use a minimum 2 physical hard disks, first for OS and programs, second only for video

I have 3 disks:

1 IDE 80Gb with 3 partitions
a) 20Gb - System and software
b) 40 Gb - Video bank - footages, motion backgrounds, etc...
c) 20 Gb - bank audio (music)

2 2x200Gb SATA in Striping set (one hard drive 400 Gb) - for video editing only

Vegas 5 not recognizing camera?

I am using Vegas 5.0b and have been for several months with no problem. However, this afternoon, I plugged in my firewire, the computer asked me which program to use for capture, and I chose Vegas as always. The problem is, the capture window didn't come up, and when I hit the capture icon, it is showing as not recognizing a connection between my PD170 and Vegas.

I rebooted, and now the computer isn't even recognizing when I plug in my firewire cable. I've tried several times in several different ways. When I go into Vegas and open the capture screen, a Vegas pop up window comes up that says, "The device VfWWDM32.dll could not be opened. Please make sure that it is turned on and is not being used by another person or program."

I'm stumped -has anyone had this issue or something similar? I've rebooted several times. I don't show any conflict in device mgr. HMMMMM

vfwwdm32.dll is a part of Microsoft WDM Image Capture drivers
Contained in Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003


A problem in the Microsoft WDM Image Capture drivers
If you use WindowsXP just go to
Start -> Control Panel -> System -> On to opened "System Properties" window go to "Hardware" tab and choose "Device Menager"

In this "Device Menager" window open "Sound, video and game controller", select the "Legasy Video Capture Devices" and press Del key (just delete this item) after this delete a "Media Control Devices"

On the top of Window click on "Scan for hardware changes" button

Windows have finde & reinstall all automatically

After this I recommend reinstall the Vegas Software

Bezier fun

Here is a short intro I made for one of my home movies.

http://www.ibms.sinica.edu.tw/%7Esro...l%20puzzle.wmv


This started out as a simple idea I had one sleepless night but it turned out to entail much more than I anticipated. I had to cut out about 300 puzzle peices with the Bezier mask. Then the fun began. I could only render 6 pieces at a time or my computer froze. So each puzzle represents over 150 render hours of 1.5-2 hours each. Some of the generated media is still jerky, even with 8x supersampling. Any ideas to smoth out the text zoom would be appreciated. Special thanks to Edward who helped me to solve some serious problems I was having when I was ready to pull a Tyson.

Steve, I really enjoyed it! Very cool effect from the beginning to the end. Something I should look into during my break.

Also, who is the artist for the "Over the Rainbow" (correct title?) song? Second time I've heard that song and it is very good. Great choice.

I down loaded it, but at the last second I aborted it. I did not know if it would mess up the DVD projects I was working on
