Default Arcsoft Showbiz conversion problem??? TMPGEnc

Hi. I used Arcsoft Showbiz to capture my footage from my vcr to the computer but I can't seem to convert the footage into a particular file...(.avi, .mpg) This program apparently only allows you to capture the footage and place directly on DVD. The footage that I captured was placed in the Showbiz project folder as a .sbz file. I tried to add that file to TMPGEnc but it wouldn't allow me to do it. What can I do here? I just want to take my footage and convert it into an .avi or .mpg file so I can send it through email. Thanks.

i don't know how you can convert it, or if it's possible. from what i've read though is that showbiz can also save in other useful formats such as AVI, MPG, EXE, WMV,and MOV. maybe the help file or manual can help you learn more about this.

unfortunately, i don't see where I can save in another format. after I capture the footage, I'll go to save project "as" and then go down to file type, but only thing that comes up is "Showbiz Project File (*.sbz)...would u happen to know anything else? The help menu doesn't have any info about conversion or saving in file format. Any other programs u know of that could help me? Thanks.

From the FILE dropdown menu, is there any other SAVE option than "save project"?

Are you using a demo version of the program, or an OEM version that came with a SONY burner?

ironman2632...have you figured this out yet??? try putting your clip on the storyboard/timeline, click on create...that should allow you to choose your format...

Default Exporting Created Video Files

In my version of Arcsoft Shobiz (Ver 2.1) -- when you are in the EDIT function, there is a tab labelled Export. When using this Export tab, you can take the entire video creation and place it on your hard drive as an .avi or .mpg or .wmv or .mov file... and if you have the need, you can also Export the created video back on to the DV camcorder or even back to the VCR. Good Luck....

Default Grrr

dhp10, that's what I tried. The first few times it said I needed an extra programme then froze. I downloaded it (trial version), and now it just freezes!! The program won't even write the files to DVD
Heeeelp
