Hi ,

Updated findings while testing muvee 8 for HD output. (22/01/2010)

i am using :
> Camera - Panasonic Lumix TZ7 /ZS3 with AVCHD video
> Intel Quad Core PC @ 2.66Ghz with Nvdia 7600GT & 2Gb Ram (made a huge speed difference @ only total 60% CPU analyzing video compared to Dual Core Duo 1.88Ghz @ 95%).
> muveeHDPlusAdd-on_1.0.43.11458_2189.exe
> muvee 8 - muveeReveal_8.0.0.12554_2224.exe
> http://www.divx.com/en/software/windows/muvee-reveal-divx-edition

1) Your input Media or "Add"

> Pany (and Sony) output .MTS or .m2ts files . Pl make sure for Pany that you rename your input media file from .MTS to .m2ts with final output as m2ts , otherwise your muvee video output will run too fast than the original.
> One can use a free Bulk File Renamer if there are a lot of files..
> Save project at every given moment !

2) You Tube

> Upload Limit is only 10 mins and 2Gb
> Raw .MTS from your camera with audio ,works when uploaded to YT.
> Edited muvee m2ts or even MTS cannot produce the audio! THIS IS A YOUTUBE BUG not muvee...unless you fancy replacing the audio with YT's own crass set...no editing audio though..
> Even YT treats Divx-HD as non-HD ! The only one i could use is ironically , WMV-HD..so output to this format if you want HD vids on YT! (at the mo)

3) Facebook HD

> Limit upload is 20mins & 1024Mb
> None of the mts or m2ts muvee files are supported.
> Found DivX-HD & WMV-HD works best for FB HD ! - DivX-HD gives same sort of quality with reduced size
> NOTE : For DivX-HD , Pl rename the output muvee from .divx to .avi otherwise FB will not accept..
> WMV-HD is much sharper than DivX-HD but loses a bit of colour so add a bit more to the style settings Colour Contrast

Overall, WMV-HD seems the better of the 2 but with at least 200MB more..

eg, 10 Min HD:
DivX-HD = 350Mb
WMV-HD = 630 Mb

4) Muvee Styles

> While working on a vid clip , Use Magic Moments > Exclude Clip first then Highlight/Exclude accordingly
> Leave a gap at the beginning and end ie. Reds (Exclude) or you will suffer jitters/short repeats at the end result (not sure if this is a muvee bug)
> Under Style Setting of a Style eg, Classic Vanilla, i like to use my own background music so i choose "Response To Music" to extreme Less (don't know why there is no "none"). I have a feeling this may contribute to the jitter.
> I also tick "Disable transition colours and use dissolves only" to minimise the jitter
> For WMV-HD "Colour saturation" , i tend to slide just less than halfway between the default (middle) and the next Saturated notch. For Divx-HD it is even half of that to keep that natural feel. I guess just play muvee to see if you hit the sweetspot.
> Overall, under "Personalize">Settings , click "Allow Video Slow Motion" to "No Always show at its original speed" - i don't know why muvee made this default.It should be the other way round :oops:

Happy Muveeing !

I am using a Sony HD Camcorder and Muvee Reveal X - as soon I click to save the software crashes

I have sent numerous crash reports and emails but had absolutely NO response - I bought this software and the entire pack of Styles, and cannot use it to do what it was bought for :/

Hi Patrick, I am sorry to say I have seen no response?

I was in Thailand and while away my mail servers crashed so can you please resend what you need

Many thanks

Steve

Just an additional note, about my system.

Its an Intel i7 built at Christmas, 16Gb Memory running at 21000mhz, with a GTX 275 Graphics card with Windows 7 x64
All drivers, BIOS etc are bang up to date (Nvidia Driver 3.1407)

As soon as I click SAVE after selecting the format, the program white screens and then bombs - I have tried with Cuda on & Off :/

Thanks for any help

I have just removed my GTX 280 from my other PC and tried it on this PC, MR crashes the same as it did with the GTX 275 so I know it isn't my graphics card :/
