Doing a show on VCD



I do not yet have Easy Creator for burning a VCD yet but want to
know if I should get the new version out that is version 6 as that
is not listed on the ones work with this program or should I look
for the 5 version of it.
Also I take it from reading the tutorial that I can do the show now
and choose the format for the Easy creator and burn it later on. Is
this correct?
I know that the transitions do not work good for doing this but is
it an automatic what I would call cut that moves one picture to the
other one?
Also do I still use the tab that I can see what each one will look
like on the show or do I have to just go with the automatic crop to
fit screen on doing it this way?
Also for example if I have thirty pictures what would be a good
number of songs to play with it? Is there any special way of
figuring out a method for doing this? I have noticed on doing the
shows for on the computer that sometimes the pictures stay on longer
than what I had set and I take it that this is to go along with the
music. Maybe I need less music or more pictures.
As you can see I am still experimenting with the program but love it.
Also is there a place on the internet that I can download the Easy
Creator program from? I realize that I have to pay for it but
thought that this may be the best way to obtain it. Thanks Sandy
Davenport

> Davenport Sandy, the way I figure the music time is: for 30
pics, show each 10 seconds that's 300 seconds plus 5 seconds each
transition=150 second, add both=450 seconds thats 7 1/2 minutes of
music needed. Find one or two songs about 3 minutes 50 seconds each.
Should come out well at end of show.

Hello Sandy, Personally I prefer Nero for burning software, I think it is t
he best. You can I think download a demo from www.nero.com but it is large
at around 13Mb. I use a downloader that is cumulative if I get disconnected
.

Personally, I prefer Nero. Easy CD Creator has really poor customer
support and Ver 5 had a major bug that trashed many XP systems. They
admitted to the bug, but did not provide a fix. That totally put me off
ANY Roxio product. None of my e-mails to tech support were ever
answered. The knowledge base was down for "updates" for 6 months.
Nero's interface seems childish at first, but once you get past the
Wizard, it's great. They also have add-ons for different codecs.

HI John
I have had a lot of people tell me that Nero is the best but that Easy Crea
tor is easier to use. I am thinking of downloading both on here as I do hav
e a large harddrive and also am on a DSL so things move along pretty fast f
or me. I sure do not miss a dial up at all.
I had downloaded some sort of Nero thing but not sure now what it was and I
burned a disc using it with the NRG or NGR whichever it is but have not ha
d a chance to see if it works yet as I do not have a DVD player but hope to
check it out this weekend at a friends home. Worse comes to worse I have a
disk that I can erase or will have one more coaster to use LOL.
I took that Nero off of here as I really had a hard time trying to figure i
t out but it had to be a different version as it was much smaller than the
one that you recommend here. I will try this one for the heck of it and see
if I can figure out how to use it.
I swear the older that I get the denser I get and I hate it when I can not
figure things out easily. Thanks once more Sandy

Thanks Rick if you see my reply to John Greenwood on the forum then I will
not have to redo it but am going to give the Nero a shot again. Sandy

Hello Sandra: I have a basic ECDC version 5.3.0 that came with my
Gateway burner. I'm using Win98 First Edition. I'm having no problems
at all, and it is easy to use. However, I suggest you check out the
ECDC Message Board at Roxio.com Support. Lots of people are having
lots of problems with upgrades, especially those with WinXP.

Hi Sandy, If you use the wizard I am sure with a little practice you will f
ind it easy to use. I thought like you when I first got it that it was diff
icult, but it isn't really. It does give you much better results with less
coasters. In fact when using xat and you come to the closing stages just se
lect to make an .nrg (nero) file and it will start up Nero automatically an
d with me all the correct settings have been selected. So all I need to do
is select the burn button and that's it. Make sure "disk at once" is select
ed. I have been burning at 4x which is the max of my burner. Someone mentio
ned the other day that vcd's could be played with Windows media player but
I haven't so far checked it out.
John

That is what I have read so often and since I do use XP I do not want any p
roblems that are going to be above my head using a program. Sandy

Hi John
I downloaded the Nero on here again and will try to see how it works out ei
ther later on today or tomorrow but now to do one of the shows with the cre
ator part of the Xat where it says allow crop do I leave that marked as is
and can I still set the cropping that I like in the other part or do I give
up that choice now?
Would you mind writing to me directly? The reason that I ask this is that
there a while ago when you were trying to help me on here someone got a bit
upset with it . If so my addy is sdavenp1@ and I would apprec
iate your help with this. Many thanks Sandy
