kJams CDG playback

Post by franks » Mon Feb 22, 2010 11:25 am

Dave,

When I play a kJams CDG created with PRODUCER it plays back perfectly on the kJams video screen; i.e. brilliant with color fidelity & resolution.

However, when I burn the same kJams CDG to a disc(with Plextor 840U burner) then play it back from a CDG karaoke player, the colors are very faded, "blotchy",or may not even be the same color as produced by kJams.

Also, sometimes the picture images and text revert to just black & white.

I must be missing something somewhere. Am I expecting too much??

Can you enlighten me any?

you are expecting too much.

you are trying to sqeeze a Hi-Def movie onto an Atari VCS. it won't fit, so must be "scaled way, WAY back".

seriously, you can only stream about 3.6Kps from a CD+G disc. if you want hi-fi, burn a DVD instead.

in Producer, turn off "high quality playback" to see what the CDG stream will look like, then you can at least tweak your colors for the best look.

Dave,

OK I understand.

You mentioned burning a DVD... How do I burn a DVD from kJams?

Most Karaoke players say they play DVD's as well.

Using a DVD disc to burn I get error message "Not a writable CD".

Are there any special settings or steps to go through?.... I'm not too bright about this

thanks

use kJams Pro
export your songs to QuickTime->Animation/Lossless
bring them into iDVD
burn from there
