Re: Freezing when trying to add file

Plus, did you try files that worked before or any other files before adding the last file you tried to add? It may just be a problematic file.

Re: Problems with ConvertXToDVD

Most likely, probably due to the age of CXD 3. I've used CXD going even further back than that. And I remember in the earlier days, there were many problems with the software and certain titles you'd import. Things like audio out of sync with video were very common. If it was a protection issue, the...

Re: Conversion of NTSC DVD to PAL didn't make Menu/Song Selection/Audio Selection

Since you seem to imply the DVD you're trying to convert is some kind of music DVD, it may be in Audio DVD format. Audio DVD contains its music in the menus of a DVD. And CXD doesn't convert the menus when copying over existing DVD's. That may be why you don't get the contents of the DVD you're tryi...

Re: Conversion of NTSC DVD to PAL didn't make Menu/Song Selection/Audio Selection

From experience, I know that PAL doesn't playback properly on NTSC TV. You get black and white and a wavy video. Sort of like those days in the late 80's and early 90's on American cable, for those who know what I'm talking about, where they'd scramble the pay TV stations. In fact, one of the things...

Re: Conversion of NTSC DVD to PAL didn't make Menu/Song Selection/Audio Selection

If he's playing NTSC on a PAL TV, I don't think there will be a problem as I believe, though I don't know since I'm on NTSC, that PAL TV's playback NTSC. If it's the other way around, PAL on NTSC, then he'll need a TV that supports PAL, too, in addition to a no region DVD player. Or, just make a cop...

Re: Conversion of NTSC DVD to PAL didn't make Menu/Song Selection/Audio Selection

I am guessing your source VIDEO_TS for this 6.x GB DVD is an original NTSC disc? Meaning, it's the disc as released with menus, etc.? CXD, when converting Titles from NTSC to PAL or the other way around, does not preserve the original menus on a disc. In fact, CXD, doesn't preserve the original menu...

Re: title menu page TITLE

About your P.S. question. The 4 hours maximum designation was instigated back in the days of DVD video recorders. So, a DVD-9 held 4 hours at standard VHS quality compression and a DVD-5 2 hours. And at the maximum compression, you could get 6 hours on a DVD-5 in a DVD video recorder. However, you c...

Re: Menu Want to Return to Page 1 Instead of 2

It's an idiosyncrasy of the software. It always returns to the last chapters page because, technically, it played the last chapter when it got to the end. As far as I know, there's no way around this.

Re: title menu page TITLE

You might want to ask that question under the ConvertXToHD 3 forum. I believe that application is the "ConvertXToBlu-Ray" program. However, I believe CHD behaves, in execution, the same as CXD, meaning it would generate BD's that are designed in terms of menus, etc. the way CXD DVD's behave. Althoug...

Re: Possible to Adjust Volume

Be aware that with older versions of CXD, like 5, changing the volume level might have undesired results. For instance, there used to be an option that set the audio level to a certain percentage on all files. However, this produced the result that whenever there was silence and the audio resumed, i...

Re: CXD output playback on the PS3

Yeah, it's not a copy protection issue as the content plays fine. It's just Forward and Reverse scanning. It's not a disc quality issue because it occurs on both Ritek 8x DVD+RW, which is 2nd tier, admittedly, and on Verbatim MCM/MKM DataLife Plus/AZO (NOT the CMC Life Series junk you find in stores...

Re: Slideshows?

With an upscaling DVD player like my PS3, the video quality shouldn't be so bad. I supposed I could use PhotoDVD to create a VIDEO_TS of slideshows and then import that VIDEO_TS.IFO into a CXD project. Depends on how PhotoDVD authors its contents. I see PhotoDVD hasn't been updated in almost a decade.

Slideshows?

Can CXD make slideshows from a series of JPG files? Like display each for 5 seconds one after the other? I didn't see any way it could, but maybe I'm missing something.


Thanks!

Re: Can’t change project save name

I think it would be a whole lot easier if CXD didn't automatically name/rename projects AND the main page title at the top. I can see it doing the title page name by taking the first title set you put in. But, CXD automatically RENAMES the title page My DVD or whatever it calls it whenever you save ...

Re: Can’t change project save name

Unfortunately, the automatic naming process for projects is a bit wonky, I've discovered over the years. As far as I know, there's really no way around a situation like the one you mentioned. Is the first title set in the project called My Holiday, BTW? If it is, that may be why it's defaulting to a...

He's probably mentioning using the Merge function in CXD. Add a video container file to a job. On the right side, there's a sliding menu of options on the bottom like Subtitle and Chapter. At the very end, which you may have to scroll to, there's a film strip icon representing Merge. You merge title...

Re: title menu page TITLE

I don't understand why you don't put all 3 weddings on the main page and name each one individually. That way, when you access each one, you get new submenus that are named with the name of the title on the main page.
