  1. Hi " 1/ Can I bypass (dissable) all FX on a clip? " To disable an effect(s) that you have applied to a clip, just click the FX button on the clip. This opens the effects pane for that clip. This displays each effect with a X in the top corner. Click the X to remove the unwanted effect.. " 2/Can I bypass (dissable) individual FX in the FX popup window? " When you clck the FX button for the clip, EACH effect you have applied is listed and each has its own cancel you can remove them individually. " 3/ Can I dock the FX popup window so it's always there if I want it. It would update based on what clip I have selected. " If you click the FX button for a clip the effects pane will appear listing the effects for the clip selected. This will remain visible (although in the way) until you decide to close it. It will update with the effects properties of any clip that you select. Nat
  2. H "i When I wanna use the same clip again in the same video, I have to remove the effect or transition first. Its verry annyoing and time eating. " As Borate notes, you can only addTRANSITIONS to clips placed on the timeline. You cannot apply them to clips in the clip bin. However, you are adding (it seems) an effect to the clip when it is still in the clip bin which is not the best way to proceed. You can apply an EFFECT to a clip in the video clip bin .....but if you do this it will remain a property of the clip. (Try adding a CROP effect to a clip in the bin and you will see what I mean.) If you do this and you use that clip again further along the timeline you will also automatically add the effect as well. This is NOT the case with transitions since (as we have stated) these cannot be added to a clip in the clip bin and consequently will not migrate if the clip is reused. In general therefore it's probably best to always add a desired effect to the clip after you place it on the timeline. It should make little difference whether you work in storyboard mode or timeline mode Nat
  3. Hi The idea of "Themes" would involve a lot of work I think and users seem to be reasonably happy with the current layout. The interface looks OK to me but I suppose I am biased as I have watched evolve of a number of years so I am of the same opinion as Ivan .......but I would make the blue Left/right arrows visible in the clip bin headings, They only appear when you hover the mouse over them. Nat
  4. Hi I find that WMP doesn't play MP4 files and I use VLC. Just export your video with the same parameters (format fps etc. as an .avi file) WMP will play that. Nat
  5. Hi Borate Doh! Of course... Nat
  6. Hi Using version 5.02 the Motion Blur works fine here and It is visible in both Preview and Sequence.panes, (In fact it is the same clip, split in the middle with the effect applied to one of the two sections.) The change between the treated section and the untreated one is obvious. Check the clip you are using. A lot depends on the speed of the subject and the level of blur applied. Low levels may not be too noticable as would be the case of slow subject movement. (Obviously it won't work on static images. :-) ) Try it out with a clip of something moving quite fast across the field of view and blur set to 800 Nat
  7. Hi The Transition fades are designed to work between clips, So if you have a single clip and you apply, for example a crossfade transition it will fade-out and then stop as there is no joining clip to fade-in into.This is the same for other transitions. They work at the end of a clip and into the next clip. Obviously if you have only a single clip and you want to do a fade-in using a transition,you need to add a blank before that clip and add a Cross fade to it. If you make the blank 1 sec duration and the crossfade 2 seconds and then select to not move the clips, your video will nicely fade in for two seconds. If you want to fade in a clip and dont want to use a blank then you can do it using a Transparency effect. Click the FX button and select Transparency. Extend the keyframe panel Check that the effects red cursor is at the start of the clip Set Opacity slider to 0% (Clip becomes transparent) Set a keyframe by clicking the small green cross top left of the keyframe panel. Move the red cursor along for the required fade-in duration. (e.g. 2-3 seconds) Now slide Opacity along to 100% (clip becomes visible again) Your keyframe pane will look like this..... Your video will now fade-in when you play it. You can easily adjust the duration of your fade-in by moving the top blue maker to the right or left. Fade-outs are done in the same way (on the same screen .. by clicking the opacity line to create a new point and then dragging it to a different position.) Nat
  8. Hi If no cropping of your own video is not required Borate's solution will work fine. If on the ther hand you need to crop your image then the border (as you found) still only goes around the full frame. In this case you will require another couple of steps. Put your background video on the main video track (Video track 1) Put a blank frame to the Overlay track (Video track 2) and make it a suitable coulour for your border. (Note it will cover the main track. (Let's Call this the "border image" ) I made this one green so you could see it.) Click the FX button for this "border image"and the choose the Crop effect Crop the "border image" to roughly the required size and in such a way it is in the corner of the frame Add your face clip to Video track 3 Click the FX button for Video Track 3 and choose the Crop effect. Crop your face clip the desired amount. Now add the Scale effect and adjust to the size required Now add the Position effect and drag it so it sits over the border image in the position required. Open the "border image" effects pane again and adjust it's crop effect so you have a suitable border around your scaled down image. You can also adjust the face clip position so the border is equal all around. e.g. Nat
  9. Hi You could try this as a possible workaround......... Create your video as you have done on several tracks (and which you say won't export) but once you are satisfied with it, convert the whole lot to a sequence. This will leave all the tracks empty. Load the sequence back now to Track1, (it should now load back on a single track) and then export it. (The sound will be there but for some reason Audio Track 1 will appear empty) Nat
  10. Hi You can also try this assuming you do not want to crop or alter your main video. Put the main video on Video Track1 Add a Blank frame to Video Track 2 (the overlay track) and drag it out to the desired duration. Add your requiredtext to Video Track 3. Use the controls to place it at the top of the frame. At this point you will just see your text on the blank frame. Your main video will be hidden by the overlay tracks. Click the FX button on the left end of Video Track 2 and select CROP Grab the bottom of the rectangle that comes up and drag it up to reveal your main video track image as far as is needed. You should now have your text on a band at the top of the frame. Use the same method for text on a band at the bottom of the frame. Nat
  11. Hi andrzej You have a clip/video that you have edited on the timeline. To export this as an mp4 to your computer.......

  12. Hi Further to that... You can have ANY colour for the FULL BACKGROUND option. Just click the colour box below the text Outline colour box - you will be presented with the Windows shade pane with the option to make up ANY shade to contrast with your text. If the FULL BACKGROUND option is chosen then the whole text image (if placed on the overlay track) will cover the underlying video. There will be no chequered area. If the option changed to TEXT BACKGROUND then your coloured area will just become a rectangle slightly larger than your text. (Not to be confused with Text outline) In this case the area outside that smaller coloured rectangle will be transparent and show the chequered pattern If the option EDITOR ONLY is selected then only the editor will show the coloured background. In this case the text, when placed on the timeline will have the normal complete transparent (chequered) background. Nat
  13. Hi " That will cut the rest of the video to the end? " No. Using the IN/OUT markers is CLIP SPECIFIC. It doesn't affect the whole video. This means you use them in CLIP PREVIEW for selecting a piece of a clip between the markers... The highlighted section of the thumbnail line under the clip preview pane can be inserted into the timeline using the green PLACE button. If the clip you are editing is already on the timeline the edit is automatically done by VP.......... If the section you want to remove is just at the start or end of a clip you will only need to set one of the markers. The example above shows both markers being used to select a centre portion of the clip. If the unwanted section covers more than one clip, you can either deal with each clip individually as above or split/ select/delete the unwanted portions and close the gaps produced directly on the timeline as describes in the earlier post. Hope this helps Nat
  14. Hi In addition to the above useful info.. Using the default image duration setting means all your slides will have the same duration. But you can alter them individually on the timeline by simply dragging their ends out along the track. Hovering the mouse over a border between images will bring up brackets for you to grab, Alternatively you can switch the timeline display into Storyboard mode which will display each of your slides with a duration setting below each one. You can individually change these values as well. Another point is that as you are using only slides there is no inherent motion as with video so when you select to add random transitions (or any transition) you can select to Freeze clip Location when prompted and your timeline will not be shortened. Nat
  15. Hi If you want to trim a section of a clip BEFORE it is placed on the timeline.. Select (left click) the clip in the media list pane on the left. This will then preview in the CLIP preview pane on the right. Play the clip (or drag the red cursor) to the Start of your selection and click the button marked "Start". This will darken the unwanted part of the clip to the left of the cursor and set the red start marker [ Play the clip or drag the cursor line to the end of your selection and click the button marled "End". This will darken the left portion of the clip and set the blue end marker. ] The selected piece of clip will be highlighted. Click the "Place" button below the preview screen to place your selected piece of clip on the timeline. If your clip is already on the timeline you can follow the same procedure but check you working are in the CLIP preview pane. VP will automatically split and adjust the sequence line as you set the Start and End points. An alternative method (it's longer and not really needed) is to place the whole clip on the timeline and set the red cursor to each start and end point and SPLIT the sequence at these points. Select the portions not required and delete them. Click any gaps and close them. Nat
