Sonic DVD Fusion with Classic ?
on Sep 15, 2005 at 12:52:08 pm

Does anyone know if Sonic DVD Fusion work great with Classic or I really should keep it on OS 9 ? Also, do you know where I can find great tutorials, because trying to learn that software with its manual is not so easy.

Thanks !
Pete

I would stick with OS 9 for that application.

If I owned the application, I'd be writing tutorials for it, but I don't, so I can't. I am sure someone here has used it, and perhaps can answer spot questions as they arise. Your best bet is to just ask the specific question you have, and see if you get a reply.

A good friend of mine uses that applications, and I understand it is quite nice. So congratulations on a fine authoring application.

It is a great application, i've been using it for years....I just wish Sonic would have made it OSX compatable before abandoning it.

Thanks for your replies. So I'll keep it on OS9 but will try with Classic, just to see (Yeah, would be great with OSX). I author DVDs since 1 year and a half with DVD Studio Pro. We have Fusion since many years, but when I came up to this company last year, I didn't know DVD authoring at all, so Fusion was very confusing and not so easy to learn, but now I'm ready.

Thanks!

1. You must keep Fusion on O/S 9.

2. If you can find someone who has taken the DVD Creator training at Sonic, they may have the Advanced Authoring Manual. Some of the material from this book is posted as tutorials on Sonic's web site.

Hello All,

Yes, I have taken the Creator Training at Sonic - it was good, but working with Sonic is a little hard. Fortunately I'm a computer major and I can do it.

If anyone has projects needing to be worked on using Sonic, feel free to get in touch.

I am currently trying to get my DVD Fusion SL up and running; I have been trying to install DVD FUsion 2.1.6 on a 1.25 Ghz Dual Processor FW 800 PowerMac G4 running OS 9 in emulation mode and it keeps saying: Error Fetching Board Serial Number when I launch the Transoder or the Author. Check your hardware installation and try again. I am hoping this is because of the emulation mode and not a fried DVD Decoder Board.

I have also been using iDVD and it can sometimes be very flaky and unreliable, I remember Sonic was NEVER unreiliable. Difficult to use, but not unreliable. SO I am thinking of using SOnic again because of Apple stopping iDVD and because iDVD old versions are flaky and not so professional because of the AAC audio etc, so limited video bandwidth.

I will post my results here for all to see. FOr all those still in the Sonic way, using DVD fusion, feel free to send me an email to: videovid@comcast.net. Let us all band together and keep this great product alive; its

Hello,

You cannot run Sonic DVD Fusion in emulation mode. You must have one of the original OS9 machines or a G4 Tower Dual Boot computer; the last dual boot computer was PMAC G4 MDD 1.25 Ghz with FW400 only. No FW 800.

I have a Sonic DVD Fusion that says my sonic key file has expired and now I cannot even open up dvd fusion. The is ridiculous. And no support! Unbelievable.
