Improved CD+G Import in Karaoke Video Creator and Karaoke CD+G Creator software

Filed under: Software — Tags: , , , — Piotr @ 2:11 pm

Version 2.5.5.1 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.

Version 2.5.4.2 of Karaoke CD+G Creator adds a way to precisely synchronize Title and Credits images. This feature was available before, but did not work as expected.

To set the exact time the image should be displayed you need to open Title or Credits image properties from CD+G Settings or Create CD+G File windows and set appropriate values in Synchronization settings.
