  1. Not precisely what you want, but a workaround would be to save an effect template (fourth 'page' icon from the left in the effects window). Then delete the effect - in essence disabling it until it's needed again. When that time comes open the effects window, scroll down to the saved effect and click on it to restore.
  2. What kind of pictures? .JPG stills? Click ADD FILE on the VP toolbar, then locate the file and OPEN it. The image should appear in the Media area, at the top-left. Note the various tabs, which are bins that hold different types of media. If you right-click in the preview window there should also be a choice to change preview resolution.
  3. What version of VP is being used? Here's the latest.
  4. Please click the FILE menu and SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT. Then upload that folder to MS OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox or the like and link it here. Someone will take a look. If it's a large project, zip it prior to uploading.
  5. You are using the latest version?
  6. Just to be clear: effects, but not transitions, can be applied to clips in the media bin. Transitions are enabled only between clips on the timeline. Do your transitions display correctly in the preview window, prior to export? Try your project with the latest version and see if the problem persists.
  7. Using 5.03 and exporting an Mp4 with default settings at low res, the zoom and text are not lost here. Try it again with this latest version.
  8. Just in case there is some confusion on file types... A .vpj file is data; it tells VP how to set up and run a project. The vpj is created from within Videopad with FILE menu|SAVE, FILE|SAVE AS or FILE|SAVE AS PORTABLE PROJECT. These files cannot be loaded into Videopad, nor will they play with a media player. Clicking on a .vpj will open its project in VP, for further editing. On the other hand, EXPORT|VIDEO FILE is used to save a partial or complete VP project in one of many common video formats or containers: Mp4, FLV, AVI, MOV, etc. These are playable with compatible media players and can be loaded into VP's media area and timeline, as clips. A project cannot be reconstructed from a Video file, as it can with a .vpj data file.
  9. If you're working in VP for long periods, overall video might be tweaked to temporarily achieve a more pleasing saturation/brightness, Here, video card setup, accessible via the NVida control panel, offers an "adjust desktop color settings" configuration screen.
  10. Good suggestions. To achieve your results now, stack text clips, then select one to move it. Using the crosshatch in the preview window, its text can be dragged to any position.
  11. Above the media bin, click the SEQUENCE tab and click on your sequence. In the preview window, just below the thumbnails, you will see a red bracket (at the left of the selected area) and a blue bracket (at the right). Drag the red one far left. Drag the right one far right. This should remove the grey area and allow full export of the timeline.
  12. There's no Mp4/H264 limitation here in WMP, which hints at the need for the necessary codec on your system. Tools exist to find the specific codec, but folks have had luck with a codec pack - perhaps overkill, with slight potential for codec conflicts, but generally effective. Suggest that you install the well thought of, widely used K-Lite basic codec pack. Click on the 'Mirror 1 or 2' links only.
  13. Likely caused by a missing codec for WMP, while VLC uses its own. Try exporting with MPEG encoding. Click the ENCODING button and make that choice. Try an AVI export, instead of Mp4. If no joy, please upload your project to a server - Dropbox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc. - and link it here. Someone will have a look. Click FILE|SAVE AS PORTABLE PROJECT and upload the folder that results.
  14. Look at the top-left corner of the first clip on the timeline. Click the fade symbol.
