Question about Pinnacle Dazzle Video Creator Platinum (230100037) Video Capture

2 Answers

I purchased your product and have been transferring my VHS tapes to DVDs. I have finished 15 of them,when I ran into this problem. When I am rendering my movie and I get to the point where it says writing final file it stops and I get the following message: Compiling failed, try again. I have tried numerous times and different days and the same thing happens. I have a 6 month old Dell with Basic Windows Vista software. My Dazzle software is Studio version 10.8. I have downloaded version 11. My serial numbers are as follows:Studio 19 JBSKA-AEBAA-BHPPN-AAAUR-OZRHB and instant dvd recorder JADIO-AABAA-BAAAA-AAAUR-TLDWK

    When I unistall the software, when I reinstall the software will have to go in and download the upgrade to studio 11 like I originally had to do? I'm not sure how to do this as a friend did it for me and he is now out of the country for 10 weeks. He is the one who talked me into transferring my tapes to dvd, which has been a pain in the ***.

  • sonnyclayton Apr 04, 2008

    I have tried to delete my serial number from the post and have been unsuccessful. I highlighted the numbers and hit both delete and backspace and neither one worked. Any suggestions?

  • sonnyclayton Apr 05, 2008

    I tried your suggestions. I uninstalled the software;restarted the computer; reinstalled the software and it didn't work. I deleted previous movies I had captured to open up more space on my C drive. I tried capturing a different video.NONE OF THESE SOLUTIONS WORKED!! I STILL HAVE COMPILING FAILED, TRY AGAIN WHEN I TRY TO RENDER MY CAPTURED VIDEO!!

  • sonnyclayton Apr 05, 2008

    First I don't have Studio 8 or 9. I have Studio 10.8. When I go to the setup I get the following: Capture Source Capture Format Project Preference Video & Audio Preference Make Disc Make File Make Tape

    When I go to edit I get Undo Change Time Scale
    and Select All

    I do not get anything about auxilary files or file folder ???????????

Hi,

First thing you can do is try uninsatlling the software and then install it back.This will definrtly help you fix the problem.If this doesn't help you then try out this software. It's similar to Nero Recode.

You find it on this page. It's freeware and there is very good tutorials.

If you manage this software - you can go back to Nero Recode.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

    HI,

    It is not possible to delete anything once you have posted.So just be careful from next time.

  • Priya darshan Apr 05, 2008

    Did you try using another software which i gave.I have given you the links you can download it from that

  • Priya darshan Apr 05, 2008

    Ok. i think this solution will solve your problem.please read this carefully.

    This may happen if the project name is long (greater than 20
    characters) and the Auxiliary files path is in the default location.
    Pinnacle has duplicated a problem that occurs when the maximum length
    the path is more than 108 characters including the project name. We are
    investigating for a future release of Studio. Currently please try
    these steps:



    1) Use a project name shorter than 20 characters. If you still have problems, try using a name less than 10 characters.



    2) Change the location of the Auxiliary File folder from the default
    location of "C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Pinnacle Studio", to
    the root of a drive, e.g., "C:\". Here is the procedure:



    - In Studio 8 or 9 go to the Setup menu and choose Edit.

    - You will see a section called ‘Folder for auxiliary files.’

    - Click the file folder icon in that section

    - Select a location that would result Auxiliary Files\. in a short path
    name. For example if you are capturing to your C drive, just select
    that drive and hit OK. The resulting path will be C:\



    3) Delete Auxiliary Files in Studio (see drop down menu - File/Delete Auxiliary Files)



    4) If you have added menus to the project, remove the menus. Create the
    disc content without the menus and see if the project will render. Once
    the project has successfully completed rendering, add the menus back in.

    If your problem gets solved please don't forget to accept the solution as fixya..

Uninstall the software, restart computer, and reinstall software back, this can solve the problem.

    Check also that you did not run out of space on your C drive (or whatever drive you use to save). If the problem happens always with the same movie is the source file that is bad .

    One more thing : delete your serial from the post, we do not need it, it is not a bug in the software, everybody seeing this post can steal your software licence now.

No Auto Stop on EZ Grab when VHS is done playing


hi, as long as you don't have a professional VHS player/recorder with a serial control, and a dedicaded software to control it, it is impossible for your soft to know that VHS as finished, you don't have the problem with a firewire input, as the control passes by the FW cable in the two directions, but you can solve that (easy way) by setting up the capture time to approach the real timing !
for the MP4 format, the easy graber doesn't capture in this format without the use of the CPU, because it doesn't have hardware encoding, so that's why you can't reach good quality by capturing directly on MP4, you would need a card like hauppage game capture to have full MP4 (H264) hardware encoding with really good quality, and without any CPU use !

I am attempting to convert a vhs tape to dvd. I have purchased a converter and cable to connect with computer via USB all seems OK cannot find if or where it transfers


You probably need some sort of media player or something that will allow your vcr to play the tapes through the computer and will allow you to save it in some type of format such as windows media player or something. After that you should be able to transfer it to DVD with a program such as roxio. To see if your computer is detecting your vcr hook it up go to my computer and look for a new storage device.

If you are feeling adventurous, you might expose the VCR mechanism and with pure alcohol and cotton swabs, try to clean the stationary tape guides. There shouldn't be many of them on if they are contaminated, they can randomly 'catch and release' the tape causing the effect you mention. From your previous experiments, it doesn't sound like a dirty or defective head but you might inspect it for any deposits and carefully remove them with the alcohol/swab combination. If you see no deposits, I would leave the head alone; they don't really like to be touched by anything unless necessary.
Good luck-

PAL VHS format


I'm not sure I understand your problem. What are you using that is PAL? If your VHS tapes are in PAL then the TV Wonder card, which can only handle NTSC format, will not produce a picture and you will not be able to transfer your movies. If they are in NTSC (U.S. or ***) then you should be able to transfer them just fine if you are using a computer from the same region. If you are using a computer from a different region (e.g. EUR) then this card is not your best solution.

Vhs tapes


All you will need is a capture card. You can pick these up at a circuit city or Best buy. Then they will connect via the RCA cables. out from the VCR into the capture card. You can also get USB capture cards for ease of installation.

No color from VHS on DVD/VHS player


There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.

Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.

If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.

If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.

And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.

Can this product use a VCR


so long as your VHS has an RF out then it will work as it is effectively the same as plugging in an antenna.

Does this product suporrt VCRs


yes I see no reason why this would not work as all you are doing is providing a signal via RF so wether its a antenna or VCR it make no difference hope this helps
