  • Imaginate 2 Error message

    When trying to render a project with about 80 pics I get an error message that says "project to long to be saved in selected format"?

    I'm trying to save it as an Canopus DV AVI.
    Any idea what I can do? The project is only 10mins long?!

    Try cutting your project down to about 50 pictures and try that. Of course if you are going back into Edius, there is no need to render the video at all.

        Come to find out the couple of times I tried to save the file it copied to my "C" drive each file was about 12gigs??!!

        Deleted those and tried it again, I can only render it as a Direct Show AVI?
        Trying to say it as an Canopus DV it says project is to big?
        And also the "Export" option is grayed out?

        I have to check the memory usage as well.

            Ok I rendered it to Direct Show DV, the file ended up being 26gigs?! And when I play the file the trasitions between pictures is not smooth at all but the play smooth in Imiginate?

            I know that's not going to work for an DVD soI put the .IVP file in Edius & the file plays back at double speed?

            I made a montage yrs ago that was about 15mins long & didn't have this problem.

              Just save the .ivp file in Imaginate. No need to render. Now bring the file into Edius, place it on the timeline and then drag it to your desired length. Does this play ok?

                    I'm using Edius 4, the project settings are the default settings.
                    I've haven't had a problem playing files only this one?

                          Here are the Edius project settings.
                          The file plays perfect within Imaginate but once I save it & put it in Edius 4
                          that's when it plays at double the speed?

                              The original length in Imaginate is 11mins. I stretched it to 30min in Edius.
                              No matter what length I make it, 11 (original) or the 30mins the results are still the same. Double playback speed?

                              I put another clip in Edius to check, it plays fine?
                              This is driving me crazy because I really don't want to redo all these photos again because it took me 4hrs getting the right angle & key frames.

                              I was trying to get this out like yesterday!!
