Version 220.127.116.11 of Karaoke Video Creator and Karaoke CD+G Creator has improved algorithm for lyrics recognition in CD+G import module. With this version our karaoke maker should get the lyrics almost 100% correct for most of the songs. Also it copes much better with CD+Gs that use fancy display modes (eg. from Karafun). We use advanced OCR (Optical character recognition, technology that convert graphics into text) algorithm to make editing CD+G easier and faster.
To import CD+G song select Import CD+G File command from File menu or click Import CD+G File button on the toolbar.
First you need to select file containing CD+G songs. Two file formats are supported — CDG BIN file. If you use CDG file, Karaoke Video Creator will automatically look for MP3 file of the same name and use it as a soundtrack.
If Insert ‘Clear Screen’ events automatically is checked, Karaoke Video Creator will detect when entire screen is erased in CD+G song and will insert ‘Clear Screen’ events at the same places in the imported song. This help to maintain the text flow for page-by-page songs (SoundChoice songs give very good results with this option enabled).
Import process takes a while (up to half a minute on a slower computer). Once it is completed you will see the imported lyrics in the lyrics editor. Please check for spelling mistakes, as some of the characters may be recognized incorrectly.
