Re: ConvertXtoDVD - beta version 6.0.0.9

Postby Claire » Mon Dec 14, 2015 1:48 pm

Some new vocabulary:
Menu structure: the menu is physically built differently: page depth (hierarchy) and navigation changes. There are 4 structures:
-- No Menu
-- Open Style: General purpose. Full menu page depth, root, chapter and setting menus
-- Series: best for TV series type contents, can have a bonus menu
-- Movie: best when converting 1 main feature (movie) can have a bonus menu

Once you select the structure for your project then choose the theme that suites you best.
Menu themes: different designs (look and feel) for each menu structure. There will be more and more themes added to the software in the coming weeks. Soon there will be the possibility to create and save your own themes.

Previous versions we used the generic term "templates" when choosing what type of menu to use, they all had the same structure but there were different designs.

Play your menu in the preview window you already know by clicking on the menu item in the treeview you want to see and press play or open the menu editor and display and/or play the pages of the menu. You can change modes from the editing mode to the "simulator" mode and see what happens if you were to navigate your menu like on a DVD player.

The one where you can add languages and subtitles and other tools. There has been no problems on previous versions. I'm on WinXP.

Hi,

In the settings, Visualization

You can [Minimize to System Tray] which will make it a small icon on the far right or your task bar.

Also, if you do not have [Show Tray Notification] on, click on the little arrow up, so see it with the other hidden icons on your system tray.

It's not really closed, just the icon went from your Task bar, to system tray, or in your hidden list.

Check those options in your settings...

I too am having problems with the tray icon. I my case it will not remain hidden. Setting it tominimize closes the application. I am on WinXp. So if you you are on an other OS you could be seeing a different issue.
As a side note. I hate Win 7 because it behaves like Microsoft want it to behave. Beside, my video capturing hardware and software works best with WinXp.

I was told that my X5 key would activate X6, however I installed X6 and it won't accept my key. I am not going to pay more money just because have a newer version of your software. Slysoft software doesn't do it. So when you tell your customers a lie it's on you. I am now displeased with your company...

Postby zioviru5 » Fri Dec 18, 2015 7:27 pm

Hi guys, more to come...
--------------------------
Issue 1 - Installer / Improper English / Final screen / "You license..." should read "Your license..."

Issue 2 - Main Menu / User prompted to "save" on exit application following use of "save to disk" button.
Steps to recreate :
Click "Save Project to Disk" icon (looks like a floppy diskette)
Click "X" to exit application
User is prompted to save project

Issue 3 - Advanced Text Menu / Title Bar off screen in 1366 x 768 screen resolution due to height of menu. User is unable to relocate menu while in advanced settings.
Reproducible
Work around : Deselect "Advanced Settings" and reposition menu

Issue 4 - Background Image failed to maintain 16:9 aspect ratio after burning process. 1280 x 720p user supplied image decreased in height after burning.
No attempt to recreate has been made.

Issue 5 - Main Menu / Title Bar "blinks" light color during burn process each time "progress %" is updated. Noticed when GUI is skinned dark. May be machine specific.

Specs:
ASUS Laptop
Intel HD Graphics
sRGB 1366 x 768
Windows 8.1 64-bit OS
4 GB RAM

ConvertXtoDVD - beta version 6.0.0.10 Fixes

Postby Coral » Sat Dec 19, 2015 9:22 am

The up/down button still needs fixing. However this can wait, you can still use the slider.
Hide system tray icon still needs attention.
Any chance of CX6 intelligently picks the correct screen format for background 4:3, 16:9 or HD. HD can probably be selected for (16:9) Or at least the option of selecting it manually at the beginning of the project.

Postby zioviru5 » Sun Dec 20, 2015 6:34 pm

The import of a .swf file type hangs app. (crash)
Steps to Recreate :
Launch ver. 6.10 beta
Import .swf to title set.

Note: The issue with the BG aspect ratio may have been due to the "letterbox" setting.
Cougar, Hi, not sure what you would like me to do with Bug account, monitor known issues I guess. -thx
