    How to "close" any "open" bin file

    Hi Gracie Pictr.com works just fine and is for Secure Image hosting, and there is no need to create an account. I use this site quite a lot and have no problems with it so not sure why that message came up. e.g. This a .jpg screendump (Alt+Print Scrn) of their main screen placed in this post using the steps I have described...... But by all means try the other options. Nat

    How to "close" any "open" bin file

    Hi Gracie You quite properly dragged and dropped your video clip (.avi) to the timeline to edit it. VP won't ask if you want to........THAT reference in my post was related to deleting a clip from the clip bin that was already on the timeline. i.e. deleting a clip containing a green tick.🙂 If you manage to get your work back or manage to recreate it: Save it....... Click the Green File tab and select Save Project File As or click the down triangle next to the Save Project tab and select the same option. Enter or navigate to a suitable destination folder Enter a suitable project file name Press Save That should save your project as a .vpj file at the stage you have got to. Nat

    How to "close" any "open" bin file

    Hi Gracie Inserting an image into a forum post. Do a screensave or have a suitable image available to demonstrate your point. (e.g. a jpeg) Goto https://pictr.com and click "Start Uploading" This will open a File upload window. In the File Upload window navigate to your image Select the image and click Open. Click the green Upload button. Your image will be uploaded to Pictr.com When upload is complete scroll down and click Embed codes Copy the Image URL. (It also has a Copy option if you hover over the text so click the word Copy that appears ) Return to the forum and in your post place the cursor where you wish your image to insert. Now click Insert other media at the bottom of the post. Select Insert image from URL. This opens up a window above your post. Paste your Image URL that you copied from Pictr.com followed by Insert into post... The image will appear in your post at the position of the cursor. Left clicking on the image will allow it to be suitably sized in the body of your post. Nat

    How to "close" any "open" bin file

    Hi Gracie Any clip, whether it is in the clip bin or any of the timeline tracks can be selected and previewed in the Clip Preview window. If the clip in question is only in the Clip bin and you click it, it will appear in the Clip Preview window, but Not in the Sequence Preview window which only previews the timeline. In a sense the clips you have added to the timeline are the only ones you have "opened" You can delete any of the clips in the clip bin as Borate says (opened" or not but if you have "opened" them (i.e. put them on the timeline), VP will ask you if you want to do this action as it will also remove the clip from your sequence. If, on the other hand you select the clip on the timeline and delete it, it will be removed but remain in the clip bin. As you edit your video....add clips to the timeline and then split and add effects etc. The steps you perform are saved in the background by VP. If, at some point you Save the project, VP creates a text file containing the names and locations of all the clips you have in VP as well as details of the effects, edits etc you have made. This is given a name by the user (e,g, "My Video") and is saved in a designated folder as My Video1.vpj VP also saves copies of all your loaded clips as well as thumbnails and stills in a Cache folder. When you open My Video1.vpj VP reads the text data and then recreates the project using the files saved in the cache. Now.....if you continue to edit and then use Save project once more, My Video1.vpj is overwritten by a new My Video1.vpj You won't get the opportunity to alter anything the old file is simply overwritten and your original edit and its .vpj file is lost. This is OK in some respects but it is sometimes useful to be able to go back to the previous edit. If you think you may want to do this then you should use the option to Save Project As. This allows you to enter a new (and different name) ...e,g, My Video2. There is no overwriting and you will have a second .vpj file to return to. If you did this then you should have a .vpj file called project-2.vpj (somewhere) Nat

    Why can't I move split video?

    Hi Check out this thread... Nat

    Drag and drop area on screen

    Hi The area you describe is the overlay track and is normally relatively narrow but can appear wider if your Video track 1 has been collapsed. If you have a + sign at the far left (next to the "eye" icon) of Video track 1 then click it. This will expand the track at the expense of the overlay track. Unfortunately the overlay track (the dark band with drag and drop instructions) cannot be hidden or collapsed. The action suggested in Borate's post works OK but at the expense of the clip preview area which is reduced in size but the video track is made wider. However a similar enlargement can be made without affecting the preview window size and this is to grab the white bar at the top centre of the Audio track and then drag the Audio track downwards. The audio track is made narrower and the Video track wider. The preview screen remains unaltered. Nat

    .mp4 with no audio??

    Hi @Jeba Your files downloaded OK but unfortunately the images/clips and mp3 received are not related to the .vpj file which was sent. These are the steps you should follow.... With your project on the timeline you need to ... Click the File tab Select Save Portable Project As Navigate to and Select a file in wish to save the data. Your project Clips/Images/Audio files will then be copied and saved into the selected folder along with a.vpj file. The folder will be dated and numbered to distinguish it from any other folder created in this way. The contents of this folder will enable your project to be recreated on a different PC. It is the contents of this folder that should be uploaded to the file sharing website. Nat

    EXPORTED VIDEO IS BLACK BUT HAS AUDIO

    Hi Which version of VP are you using. There is a recent fix in the latest version which is 6.10. You can download it to try here... Video Editing Software. Download Free Video Movie Editor Nat

    3D text effects

    Hi Within VP there are no effects that will create 3D text (per se) There is a 3D anaglyph option but this requires 3D glasses to see the effect. The nearest you will get is something like this... which uses normal text with the addition of a shadow. Unfortunately VP does not have any controls in the text editor to enhance the shadow; change the shadow colour or alter the shadow direction orientation or depth of the shadow. I am sure that this is something that could be developed and would prove very useful. You could then get text similar to this... Until then you will have to do with a third party program. Nat

    Green FILE tab on toolbar not correct..Fade "f" not working.

    Hi Borate Thanks. That seems to have fixed it.🙂 It's a slightly bigger file that the one I had but is now correct. I can't see why it should have changed. I just loaded the earlier version to check out a Save query and then reloaded my usual 6.10. That's when I noticed File and its options had changed. Pretty certain it was there before. Nat
  11. Hi Can anyone (NCH?) shed any light on why the Toolbar green tab at the top left has a different label (Three white bars instead of "File") and also a different menu when clicked. e.g. The save options are missing. As can be seen in the attached image its a licensed version and is VP 6.10. I recently reloaded 6.01 to check on a forum query and then double clicked the exe file for 6.10 to revert back. I did mention this in a previous post regarding the save options. I have tried re-entering the user code but the defect remains. I presume I can mess around a bit --delete and reload things but I would like to know why this change has come about. I also note that the Fade "f" on the thumbnails will offer a value you can enter followed by Set but does not, in fact implement a fade in even though the bar above the thumbnail shows there should be one.

    Move text around in VideoPad

    Hi Just reloaded VP 6.01 Professional Licensed version (was using 6.10 for above posts) and checked out dragging the text. st11x is correct. A four headed arrow appears and the yellow rectangle can dragged to a new position but the text does not move with it. I have to presume the feature we are describing in our posts using VP 6.10 was not implemented in the earlier version or that version has a bug. Applying the Position effect to the text is the obvious way to proceed. Nat

    Timing narration to video

    Hi With your mike set up and levels checked etc., drag the red cursor line to the start of your narration. Click the down arrow to the right of the Record tab and select "Over Video" This will open a preview screen with the red cursor line at the bottom with the Start and Stop buttons for the narration recording. You will perforce have to record the narration live while watching the project. There are no indications when the clips in the video change, and so its not that easy without practice. However you will end up with an audio clip (wav file) in the clip bin as well as on the timeline that you can split edit and move about like any file. Another way is to write a commentary to fit the scenes and read it out while recording; and ignoring the visible preview, The object is to use VP simply as a recorder. You record statements with silences between them that can be easily edited to fit the visuals. This method tends to be less spontaneous but can be more accurate with no "Umms and Errs" Nat

    Save project....

    Hi Borate Just replied to this post but for some reason it seems to have got lost??? and your post has a huge space under your last line of text..?? What seems odder is that my version of 6.10 had a down arrow next to the Save Project tab which gave a short list of save options but NOT Save as a portable project.or Backup files to a folder and the green tab which normally says File just had 3 horizontal white bars with no save options. The really strange thing is that I went to the NCH download page and downloaded the latest version to check the number and on opening the vppsetup.exe file (as far as the version number) found it was 6.01 so I didn't proceed to download and deleted the file. On opening my 6.1 version again I find that the Save Project down arrow had disappeared, the green tab now says File and the options on this include all the save methods. I came back to the forum to correct my contribution (as I mentioned the down arrow) to find it wasn't there........Bit puzzling. 🤔 Nat
