@Set, there are some quite quirky things in that guide. I have on my list to write a new guide to recovering.veg files from .bak, temp files etc., and also how to back them up (manually and/or scripts). Probably the next one I'll do.
@Musicvid the main FAQ point 19. links to Information on codecs etc.. The last paragraph in section 1. there gives a link to Nick's settings and to another comment. Not sure about bulletproof, but they seem to work. A bit of digging needed, so mv's suggestion is worth considering as there are bound to be even more "lost souls" in the near future.
Gamers generally aren't inclined to dig for answers. I've suggested a gaming / screencap subforum several times, where the correct encoding information could be readily available, without all the questions, which are generally all the same.
There have been seven other posts containing the words "OBS settings" in the past week, and 40+ posts containing those words in the past month. . And that's just one of several capture utilities.
The case was BIOS resetting on the system which makes the activation status confusing.
By deleting the activation list in the magix.com log-in , and then uninstall-reinstall, fix the problem.
I added this to #3 on this post. I guessed that an uninstall/reinstall was not necessary, but just a re-activation after deactivating the device. Please let me know if that's not so. We could give it its own FAQ item if it comes up often.
10 - If you have DVD Architect, don't forget to import a rendered media there too, to proceed with the activation process.
*This also includes the required rerendering if needed. (like disc animated thumbnail menu)
I dropped a few files on my DVDA 7 and no activation windows popped up. I guess I may have already done it in the past. What are the exact instructions for this, with reference to this list, which is the list we're recommending for doing a short render in Vegas Pro?:
