  1. Thanks again Lin , I will know what to do if this happens. Canico
  2. Thanks to Lin and Dave for your respones. Problem Solved - pilot error, looking at the screen pic you sent Lin I realised that 'burn DVD' was unticked which is surprising as I successfully made a DVD a week before. I am interested in your advice that the DVD burner can wear out, when this happens does this require replacement hardware or software ? Canico
  3. Thanks for your reply Dave but I am sorry I do not follow you. Where is the ISO option and what does VLC stand for please ? Canico
  4. I have just encounted a publishing problem that has left me frustrated and I would welcome some advice please. I am using windows 10 and PTE V9 and have used 'publish' to make DVDs of my sequences for years without difficulty but this has just stopped working. What is happening is that the publish sequence procceds as usual but when the DVD goes into a DVD player it says nothing has been recorded. I have tried sony and panasonic players with the same result,also I have used different blank DVDs. I have also tried to publish onto a USB stick but this is also blank. I have seen a message on screen as follows - access violation at address 0075AB9C in module pictures to exe read of address 00000000 but I have no idea what this means ! Regards
  5. I decided to revisit an old sequence made on PTE 8 and made a small change and then tried to go into the Publish sequence to burn a DVD. This did not work this time and at the top of the screen it says WN Soft Video Builder ( not responding) Can some one please advise what the problem is ?
  6. I use DVDs all the time and would be lost without this facility . I find the best way to view photos and sequences is on a large screen TV via a dvd player. This way friends and family can view together.
  7. Thank you Jill and jt49 for your help Canico
  8. Many thanks Jill. If you later decide to reposition it do you right click again to release it ? Canico
  9. Is it possible to 'lock' vocal and music sections when you get them in the right positions on the time lines. I find that when I am maneuvering a section of audio on either at one end of the sequence or the other another section has sometimes moved out of the desired position on either the music or vocal track. Thank you Canico

    I have one of the early versions of PTE9, please advise how I can upgrade to the latest modified version. Thank you Canico
  11. Many thanks Lin - very helpful. Canico
  12. I have just started using the latest version and in the new features listed is the ability to adjust picture brightness,contrast etc. but I cannot find anywhere that explains where to get into this. I can see this being advantageous by avoiding the need to go into Photoshop.Also there are references to upgrades to keyframes, I have never used keyframes , what are typical applications please ? Thank you Canico
  13. Hello George Thank you for your comments Canico
  14. Thank you for the replies - I currently do as davegee says but was looking for a step up without the complexity of Audacity or Audition. Perhaps I will stick with what I have as it seems no-one in this community is using Serif. Canico
  15. I have tried Audacity but found it too difficult to use so I am interested in something simpler. Canico
  16. Hello Barry The write - up says it is easy to edit and mix and edit from different tracks and also do time stretching. I usually have a problem with the length of a music track, either too long or too short. Canico
  17. Has anyone experience of using Serif Extra's Acoustica Standard Edition 6 music editing software ? It looks as though it would be useful but I would be pleased to hear any comments before investing. Thank you Canico
  18. Thanks Dave for your work on this. I find viewing on a TV the best home option and of course this enables a group of people a better view than a computer screen. However when I take a sequence to our AV club and see it projected onto a big screen I am blown away by the difference - the good bits and the bad bits ! Canico
  19. Hello Phil Thank you for giving your time and thoughts on this, however I am pleased to say that I have solved the problem although I am not sure why it happened . I had several older versions and I decided to clear them in case they were somehow overloading the program ( the completed sequence is 371KB ) and one these ,an abandoned start only 2KB, refused to open but a message appeared that said it was already open. It refused to close so I moved it out of PTE to another folder and then everything was back to normal ! So I am pleased to say job done and on to the next one where no doubt some other problem will arise but I guess this is how we learn. Canico
  20. I have been revising a long sequence (45 minutes) and although I have previously published this to a DVD ( and made many other DVDs ) this time the publish function does not work. The message that appears is 'wnsoft video builder ( not responding) '. I have tried several times and tried switching off the computer and starting again - all to no difference. I tried publishing to a memory stick and this started working but was going at snails pace so after about 15 minutes I cancelled. Any suggestions as to cause and cure would be very welcome . Canico
  21. Very helpful gentlemen, thank you, I will try your advice. Canico
  22. When I publish a sequence on a DVD made in 4:3 and show it on a wide screen TV the pictures fill the screen with the images slightly stretched, however when made in 16:9 which I would expect to be correct the images do not quite fill the screen. Can anyone please offer an explanation and possible solution ? Thank you
  23. Thanks to Lin - I have been able to add commentary using a mic. and Audio Comment . Dave ,thanks for your reply but I cannot find voice comment and have not found a way to download from a recorder yet, presumably this is why I need voice comment. Thanks again
  24. I am trying to add voice comments to a sequence for the first time and am stuck . I have the images and music in the sequence and have recorded the voice comments to a separate recorder but cannot get them into PTE. I have gone into help and scrolled down to the slide of a bearded man and on the top right side are 'add audio file ' and 'record voice comment'. At this stage I do not mind which of these to use but I cannot find this page where these options are, would someone kindly point me to the right place. Thank you
  25. Hello Dave Many thanks for your reply, I had not found that information in Help. I have now learnt how to do this thanks to you. Canico
