I know DVDA has some funny issues with certain drives.
For instance, a pioneer DVR-109 with +R discs does not work, but it will work with -R discs, even though the issue cannot be repeated with other software.

My suggestion: don't trouble yourself too much with it - prepare the project in dvda, then burn the disc in nero or some other burning software.
That's what I do - never fails

DVD Architect 3 can't find DVD writer

Have you, by chance, come across this problem. Bought new PC, have installed Vegas and DVDA3. Vegas can find the DVD writer, DVDA can't. I have tried re-installing and checked firmware, updates etc, but no joy. Any bright ideas much appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Edward, thanks for the response. I know they should show up in the Effect and Transitions tabs. But does the .dll file have to be in the \Sony\Vegas6\Plugins folder? Where do you put Presets for them to show up in the Plugin Manager tab?

Assuming the .dll files are for VST plug-ins, put them in any folder you want. Then, in Options - Preferences - VST Effects, make that folder your "Default VST Search folder".
As far as Presets go, download and use the Preset Manager from http://www.sonymediasoftware.com/dow...p2.asp?DID=469

No. As far as I know, they can be anywhere - whereever the installation program wants to put them is fine.

I've asked this before, but haven't got a usable answer, so I'll ask again!

What are the advantages of preparing with DVDA but burning with Nero?

Assuming DVDA will burn, why would I choose Nero?

AND HDVSplit is free. Personally, I like to do something else during capture, like eat and see my family. ;)

I always 'burn' an ISO image on my hard drive with DVDA, then I simulate a DVD drive with deamon tools so that I check all the menus' and chapters' functionnality. This gives me the bonus of being able to cut copys whenever I want in half the time. As for actual burning I just prefer Nero because it works flawlessly with my recorder, with adjustable buffer, auto detecting media speeds so why bother. I'm so used to Nero, I haven't even given DVDA's burning a try... YMMV

Thanks guys. If it isn't folder placement I've got to figure out why a couple of the plug-ins aren't showing up in Vegas.

Does your new PC use the nVidia nForce 3 chipset? If so, there is a known problem with all Sony Media Software applications not recognizing the CD/DVD drives from these motherboards (DVD Architect, ACID, Sound Forge, & CD Architect). As you saw Vegas 6.0d has the fix. Contact Sony Tech Support and they will email you DLL’s to patch your other software.

Mike,
I'll check when I get home to my editing compter (on the road with the work laptop now).

I think there is a possibility that some of the .dll files I think are not loading might have loaded with an Effect or Transition name other than the name on the .dll.

I just wish that there was a dang folder labeled "Effects .dlls" and such to make it clear. I guess I can't complain about free effects, transitions and presets not showing up like I think they should.

HBO Carnivale Intro technique?

I happen to be learning Vegas right now, so I'm posting this here, but I'm sure this is not specific to any particular piece of software:

I was wondering if anyone has some ideas on how to mimic the type of still-picture, massive depth-of-focus effects like the ones done for the title intro in HBO's now-defunct Carnivale series.

I've also seen it done recently in a History channel documentary where they give a 3-d or stereoscopic look to old drawings and such.

Thanks for any pointers...

Problem with Film Effects - Motionless

I'm trying to apply Film Effects to an event. So I clicked the Event FX button and added 'Film Effects' (set the preset pulldown menu to Very Old Film).

The problem:

When I previewed this event the Film Effects was NOT dynamic. It stayed motionless. From previous experience using this effect, I remember flickering, dust and scratches appearing randomly at different places. But now nothing happens. There's only a Film Effects tint and some particles which stay put and don't move throught the whole playing of the event.

I tried rendering the event to see if this problem is only with the preview. But the rendered .avi acted exactly as the preview.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Thank you
