    Preview Lag/Buffer

    https://www.nch.com.au/general/refund.html Before you bail out I suggest that you try the method suggested earlier - editing with low-resolution copies. When done, replace those with the originals before exporting. Tested here, that produced a glitch-free preview. Here's the approach... Place the original files in a "high-res" folder, which initially will be ignored. Convert those files and place them in a separate "low-res" folder, to be used for editing. NCH Prism can batch convert video files. When done, right-click on each clip in the media bin - one at a time - and click CHANGE. Find the original file in the hi-res folder and click on it. Export. Here are the low-res versions of the files. 04 and 19 and still high res because they were not used in the project. Be sure to UNzip all prior to use.

    ALL the files, not just the VPJ control file, are needed in order to reconstruct your project. Try again...

    program crashes on export - Abnormal exception

    Let's take a look... Please share the project. Here's how... 1. Save your project. Then, with it on the timeline, click the FILE menu. SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT AS to any convenient folder. 2. Open the folder that contains the saved files and ZIP them all. 3. Upload the zip file to DropBox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive or the like. It's free. 4. Make the uploaded file public (share it) and copy the shared link. 5. Paste the link into this forum.

    Try this. Report back.

    Text truncated and Video size is small

    If the issue is still truncation of audio, please upload the project. Track layout looks okay.

    Two suggestions... Share the project or a portion thereof, so someone can check it out. Use low-res thumbnails when editing, as described above. When ready to export, replace those with the original video.

    Something ain't kosher. Let take a look. Here's how... 1. Save your project. Then, with it on the timeline, click the FILE menu. SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT AS to any convenient folder. 2. Open the folder that contains the saved files and ZIP them all. 3. Upload the zip file to DropBox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive or the like. It's free. 4.

    Text effects

    On the text clip, click the FX icon. Then click the large green + at the top-left of the window and choose the SCALE effect. With the red-line cursor at the head of the clip, create a keyframe by clicking the smaller green + sign. Move the line to the place where you want the movement to end. Drag the right-bottom handle in the preview window, or use the sliders, to make the text as small as you like - or vanish. Create another keyframe, if necessary. Keyframes are signified by tiny squares. Preview the result and make adjustments as needed. For more info, click the ? at the top-right of VP's window. In the Effects and Transitions section you will see "Animating Video Effects."
  9. Hi Josh,

    The option to insert an image into a post using the Insert other media tab is missing in the VP forum. The only option that comes up when the tab is clicked now is the disabled Insert existing attachment.  Simply typing in the URL to display an image is to be defunct as well.

    It's understood that spam is a problem!  Yet most other forums I visit seem to be able to filter the junk while enabling these features.  It surely would be useful if attachments were allowed. Perhaps permission exceptions could be made for known forum participants?

    Best, borate

      Hi Borate

      I've created a new member group that's allowed to post attachments, and I've added you that group. Let's see if that works and how it goes. I want select individuals to be able to post, but there needs to be some security too.

      Thanks

      Josh

      I like that idea, Josh, and ultimately it should be a boon to your company.  Thanks for the consideration.  borate

    Text truncated and Video size is small

    This isn't mandatory, but it may make your editing easier as the preview window will be about the size of the video being edited. You can always change it, or restore the default 768x422. Text should be on an overlay track - track 2, 3, 4, etc. - with the background clip on a lower numbered track. Typically, background is on track 1, text on track 2. Then the VIEW choices should be available.

    As Nat noted in his post, the INSERT IMAGE feature appears to be missing in VP recent versions. A report has been filed. Changing the preview resolution won't affect export, but only what is seen while editing. Adjust it to closely match the resolution of the clips being edited. To see the VIEW button, place the text clip on the timeline, then double-click on that clip. When exporting, first try one of the "auto" modes that are available towards the bottom of the resolution options drop-down menu. It's the export res that determines the size of the video.

    First, right-click in the preview window and CHANGE PREVIEW SETTINGS to match the aspect ratio of your project. Then, while in the text editor, click the VIEW icon (under the preview window) and choose CLIP AND BACKGROUND or SEQUENCE. You will then see how the text fits with the background video or image and can adjust text line spacing to fit. For video size, explore EXPORT resolution settings. Choose one from the many options that most closely matches the res and aspect ratio of your project.

    Deleting Unused

    Import the file to the bin (top-left). Drag the scrubber (red-line cursor) under the preview window to where the clip is to start, then click the START button. Drag it to the end point, click the END button. Drag the clip to the timeline or right click on it and PLACE ON SEQUENCE AT START, AT CURSOR, or AT END. The original file will be preserved, but can be handled as Miggy notes above.

    Divvying up the project isn't a bad idea. Not clear on what you mean by "adjust the original footage speed?" Experiment with first creating lower-resolution clips, and use those in editing. When satisfied, and the project is saved, replace those clips with the originals by using FILE|CHANGE FILE.

    Can't pin down why preview is choppy, but export is fine. Suspect it's related to speed changes. Video runs short of audio; no doubt that's intentional or the project is incomplete. There were two gaps near the head, which you can spot in STORYBOOK mode. To close them, right-click and CLOSE GAP. As a matter of practice, if this project is to be monochrome, you might want to hold off on the color title and B/W effect for each clip. After assembling the clips, create a new sequence by clicking the + sign to the right of the sequence 1 tab, above the timeline. The new sequence 2 will be blank. In the bin (top-left) click the SEQUENCES tab and drop sequence 1 onto the sequence 2 timeline. It will then contain the whole project as a single clip. (The audio track won't display, but it's there.) Then apply the B/W effect to that clip and add the color title at the head. Export sequence 2.
