    Text on sides of vertical video

    Hi There are several ways you could do this. If you are simply using text then click the Add Objects tab abd then Add Simple Text. In the text editor set the font size to around 9 - 12 and type using a suitable text colour to contrast with the black border. Use a left justification and central screen position. Since the text editor screen does not match the scale of the 16:9 VP frame (a point mentioned in previous posts) you will have to check how many characters you can type before the text overlaps your image. (With font size 9 it is about 17) When the text is placed on the overlay track (Video track 2) it should appear to the left of the image. (You will probably have to adjust it) e.g. If you want text to appear on the right of the image you can simply use The Position effect to move it over. e.g.... If you have an image you wish to add then you can use the Scale effect to reduce it sufficiently so that it will fit into the border (around 1/3 on each axis) and then use the Position effect again to place it where you want it to go (left or right) Go into Sequence preview to monitor the positioning. e.g. Here is an image added in this way to the above project. (Note is placed on Video track 3) Hope this helps Nat

    Uploading Audio Remotely

    Hi, the doctor for whom I do transcription simply sends me his audio files via a file transfer program such as Opentext. I download the file onto my laptop and drop it into Express Scribe. Easy peasy

    Text on sides of vertical video

    I recorded vertical video with cell phone and Videopad leaves a couple inch gap on each side of the video. Is there a way to put my branding information in that unused space? I tried overlaying a text graphic and that did not work. Any help much appreciated.

    Uploading Audio Remotely

    Hi - I am new to Express Scribe. Is there a way to upload audio files remotely. I am going to do transcription for a doctor, and he needs to be able to upload his dictation to the software so that I can transcribe it and send him the copy. Is that possible? Thanks! Oh and if not, do you have recommendations of software that would work? Thanks again!

    Hi timn64 and Chris75. Could not find any solution to the three stated queries. Version 5.24 seems to have a bug. "When a new Invoice is processed and the "Record" button is selected and entered, a window appears to request " Please select the account for Payment". Was not able to resolve issue and can remember also seeing this being posted by another member. I battled along with system until financial Year end as at 28th Feb 2018. Once all year end adjustments were made, the my old outdated computer and 5.24 on new computer was dumped and terminated. Backup of 4.98 and restore to 5.24 version did not work. 1) Then started from scratch by downloading fresh 5.24 wef the beginning of March 2018 which worked with the security code as it was downloaded within the 6 month time limit. Also set up new accounts to my liking as old system had too many dormant accounts. 2) Saved all Debtors and Creditors of old system in CSV format and uploaded into new computer. 3) To get all balances of Debtors recorded on new system, Sales tax free Invoices were done for all customers. Some journal adjustments were required to General sales and Unbalanced Suspense account. 4) To get Creditors updated on new system, their opening balances were also recorded on new system. NB NB . 1 - 4 not recommended for inexperienced bookkeeper!! After all this effort, the problem still exists and I still manually select Bank Account ........ Looking forward to updated version. Another irritating feature of 5.24 is that when a Creditor payment is made, a screen box pops up which requests the following: "Would you like to view all unprinted cheques now?" "View cheque List." I always have to select "Cancel". In this modern day and age 99% of payments are electronic trough bank account or otherwise paid in cash. I hope this will also be resolved with future updates. If anyone out there have a solution please be so kind to share and assist. After all I still love the program. Stevie McGee http://nch.invisionzone.com/profile/71584-stevie-mcgee/

    Need help exporting

    Hi Further to my reply above.... " ....in order flip white text to black and the black background to white." Why not use black text on a white background in the first place? If you are doing the text through VP then you could add a blank white background clip (Under "Add Objects" tab.) and add black text to the overlay track. (In the text editor set the text to black and the text editor background to white so you can see it.) Better still use black text and set the Full background option to white and then there would be no need for the Negative effect or a blank white background clip. Nat

    Hi Are you certain that ALL the clips had the effect applied? You may have selected all the clips and then clicked the FX button on the first clip to apply the effect but even though the clips are selected or grouped the effect is only applied to the first clip. Proceed like this... With all the clips on the timeline.. Hover the cursor over the first clip and wait for the name to come up Press Ctrl + A. This will select ALL the clips. (which will go grey.) Click the Video Effects tab on the TOP toolbar...(Not the FX box) Hover over Filters in the menu that comes up Select Negative from the list. Select Apply to All in the dialogue box that appears. (This only comes up if you have multiple clips selected.) The effect chosen (Negative) will be applied to ALL the clips selected. The timeline should export in the normal way Nat

    Hi! I have a video edited. I added the "negative" filter to every clip in order flip white text to black and the black background to white. I've applied it to every clip. It shows up correct in the Sequence Preview. However, each time I've exported, the first clip is negative and every subsequent clip is not. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

    Hi Stevie Did you find a solution for this, I too am having this exact problem. It is only selecting an account but when processing lots of orders it adds an extra click and select each time and I keep forgetting to do it until prompted! Tim

    Discounts per customer

    Hi All I have been using Express for a few years now but I am now changing my business name and adding some services so I am in the process of setting up a new company file to accommodate it. My question is can I set up a discount per customer rather than individual line discounts on each invoice. I have certain customers who get a fixed discount across the board for certain products and it would be quicker for me to revert the discount to 0 on the few that do not apply. I previously had the same item stored more than once in the item list, once at full price and once with each discount already applied. I am hoping there is a cleaner way around this as I would like a tidier, more manageable item list this time! Hopefully someone can point me to an option I have missed or a simple workaround. Thanks Tim

    Is this free or a trial thing?

    There's a Support look prominently (I hope) displayed on https://www.nchsoftware.com/. There's a free version of VideoPad and the paid version comes with a 14 day free trial so it would depend on which version you're using.

    Editing In Portrait

    I have been using VideoPad for about 2 years now, and with the new release of IGTV, I wanted to make some portrait videos. VideoPad does not seem to be able to export portrait and will instead export it as a 16:9 video, how do I change this? Is there a way to make the preview window(s) portrait view also? TIA!
  18. Hi I assume you require the audio from the existing video clip on Video track 1 to remain as it is and play without a break. Simply drag and drop the clip to be added to the overlay track (Video track 2) and move it to the required position. The added video will play over the video on Video track 1. The audio from the added clip will appear on Audio track 2. It can either be unlinked and deleted or more simply, muted by clicking the loudspeaker icon at the left end of the track which will then have a red bar though it. Note that you can also move the cursor to the position where you wish to add the new clip; select the new clip in the clip bin and preview it. Under the preview window is a PLACE button. If you click the down arrow next to this you can select from the menu to place the clip on the overlay track at the cursor position. Nat

    Audio Fade In & Out Not Working

    Hi "Question: Does Videopad 'require' a video crossfade to enable additional (audio tracks 2, 3 and beyond) to fade in and out? Can you fade music tracks in and out at any point? Yes or no? " As mentioned above.....Video track 1 and Audio track 1 are linked (normally) and if the Crossfade video transition is applied between the clips then it is also automatically applied to the associated Audio track 1, (unless the option has been turned off) Separate audio tracks below are not affected. On the lower independant audio tracks (i.e. not linked to higher video tracks) and even when audio clips are on the same track and contiguous there is no X to enable an audio transition like a crossfade between them. If you want to crossfade the audio clips on these tracks then one must use individual tracks, overlap them and have fade in and fade out on the overlap. "Can you fade music tracks in and out at any point? " Yes, In a single audio track you can left click the track and preview in The Clip preview window. Along the centre of the waveform display (see Borate's image above and mine below) there is a thin purple line which represents the volume. This line can be grabbed at any point and dragged up or down to produce a fade-out or fade-in. It needs a bit of practice as any trims to the clip can be confusing as to where the changes in the sound start. In this way you can make multiple audio changes in a single track.The line produced is copied to the audio track. e.g.......... Any volume point (sound keyframe) can be adjusted. The centre of the waveform is the "normal" volume. Right click the track to remove the fades if required. This procedure can be used with any Audio track whether linked to a Video track or not.Obviously it won't produce a crossfade. Nat

    Audio Fade In & Out Not Working

    Audio TRANSITION fades, enabled under OPTIONS|EDITING, apply only to a video transition of adjacent clips on the same track. Audio follows video, in essence. Audio fades not bound to video can be made on any clip, irrespective of track: click AUDIO EFFECTS on the menu bar and choose fade IN or OUT. Or click the AUDIO tab that's just below the AUDIO EFFECTS menu item. A FADE button will appear on the toolbar. Once a fade has been programmed it can be viewed and refined by double-clicking the audio track itself. Note the keframes (white squares) on the blue line. They can be dragged left or right to increase/decrease fade duration or up/down to change volume. The graph itself is yet another method for creating a fade. Drag the line and release the mouse button, to create keyframes. Right-click to remove a fade effect. They are faint, but this graph has two keyframes - created in this case by programming a FADE IN and OUT. The blue line slopes down from zero at the head, TO zero at the end.

    Audio Fade In & Out Not Working

    Apologies. I can see what you mean. I only work with video (not images) so I guess I just lumped in audio track one as a given for being voice. Thanks for clarifying. Ok I replicated your layout and tested it myself: I set the crossfade to 6 seconds like you with 3 seconds fade (left) and that appeared to fade correctly. I tried a variation on the right with a shorter fade within a longer crossfade and that worked too. Thank you. I generally used the default 0.5 second crossfade so I suppose I can implement longer crossfades as it seems to be fixing the issue. Also looking back at my original example, I was moving music tracks outside of the 0.5 crossfade zone to allow them adequate time to fade in/out which may have also caused problems. Fade in/out 'has' to be used with crossfades? Looking back over your posts, you always say to use crossfades when fading music tracks in/out. People may want to fade music during a longer, un-cut video segment. Question: Does Videopad 'require' a video crossfade to enable additional (audio tracks 2, 3 and beyond) to fade in and out? Can you fade music tracks in and out at any point? Yes or no? During bigger editing sessions (multiple video, music files) I find this is hit-and-miss (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't). I'm trying to understand if I should add an artificial crossfade so it works 'correctly' or I should be able to do this without a crossfade.
  23. I just downloaded Video Pad and also the Slide program (don't have all the exact name description in front of me). There is no way to "Contact Us" so, I 'm asking in this forum: is this program meant as a trial run or is it free indefinitely? I'd like to know because I previously downloaded another movie maker from the "Microsoft Store" and after designing my video over 2 days and several hours and having previously saved the project, I was suddenly notified that in order to save again I had to purchase the software. I don't want to go into all that work again only to have this program snatched away. Thanks for your information.

    Audio Fade In & Out Not Working

    Hi Your images are now visible and clarify things a little. They do show the audio tracks are separate tracks and not simply two clips with audio following each other which I thought was what you had originally.🙂 However, the track labelled Voice is normally associated with the video and should be Audio Track 1.(You labelled it Audio in the second image.) The track you have labelled Audio Track1 should be Audio Track 2 and is usually associated with Video track2 (Overlay) etc. So the layout you show is a little confusing.but I think it's just the labels you used. 🙂 Anyway..In the top example..Yes-Audio track 2 will play to the end and stop suddenly as there is no fade out. It is not (apparently) connected with the video and therefore will not be affected by a crossfade transition. In the lower example audio track 2 should fade out. I have duplicated as far as possible your set out.... This is how it should work....... Two clips are on Video Track1. Clip 1 is silent (actually an image but I could have used a clip with the sound muted.) to match your image. The Audio for the second clip is on Audio track 1 which is normal. (It is labelled Voice but its the Audio for Video Track1.) I have added a 6 second crossfade with moving clips to the join but the audio is not ticked to crossfade.Even if ticked it would not affect the other Audio tracks. The SOFT Audio is on Audio Track 2 and is adjusted to to start at the start of the transition. This has a 3 second fade-in as shown by the blue line. (Click the audio on the track; select Fade-in and set 3 seconds.) Consequently it fades in with Clip2 The LOUD audio is on Audio Track 3 and extends to the end of the transition. This has a 3 second fade-out as depicted by the blue line and consequently fades out with Clip1. (Click the audio on the track; select Fade-out and set 3 seconds.) i.e. The LOUD track fades out to silence as the SOFT track fades into full. The 3 second duration is set as being half the length of the transition. The voice track simply starts at full volume at the join. (You can add a fade in if required.) In short..The Loud and Soft tracks overlap and have their fades equal and opposite for the length of the overlap. Nat

    audio records at different speed than video

    Hi Geezeronthego, My ADUIO parameters are the same than yours, and my VIDEO parameters are : 30 fps and the Gamma ramp NT checked; I have change to 60 fps in order to have the same parameters than yours. I will record a new video from screen to chack if this solves the problem... I have bought the "Debut" licence because i had just verified that it was OK on 30 mn record, but to be honest I am a bit disappointed... I have recently heard that there are FREE software than may run perfectly: will try them, maybe they perform without this sync problem ? By the way, have you managed to record a long video, let say 1h30mn to 2 hours, without any sync problem using your VIDEO/AUDIO parameters ?? Thank you very much for your reply,

    Audio Not Following Crossfades

    It isn't necessary to post the project to the forum. A private message (PM) is an alternative. If you can isolate a small portion of the project that exhibits the fault, please PM me or c_major (admin) as instructed earlier. Provide details. Tests here with several same track audio transitions have exported successfully.

    Audio Fade In & Out Not Working

    Crossfade transitions survive export here... provided that the audio clips are on the same track, the OPTIIONS|EDITING sound crossfade box is ticked and both clips are linked to video (may not be necessary).
