  1. Since so many of the new versions for the past several years have been so much slower, where can I find older versions (and I'm talking about going back to the 2012s if needed). There used to be a NCH site to do it but i cant find it anymore. Is it possible to download any or all of the older versions?
  2. OK - let me know how/where to upload one and I will. I will upload a simple 6 minute 12gb .mov file. It isnt even one of the more difficult ones that makes the screen go black, etc. It just takes forever for the audio to catch up or the preview to build so that I can play the clip in the timeline. And I cant wait several hours for the greenline to run through a simple 6 minute video for the audio to finally get into sync. Still, let me know how/where to upload and I will. I am currently using version 5.20. I purchased the newest version and tried that for a while, but it had more bugs in it - crazy stuff like if you add too many effect to a clip the video portion goes blank - unless you redo the effect in a particular order). Version 5.20 is just as fast/slow as the newest version for me but with less bugs than the new version.
  3. I have had VideoPad for at least 6or 7 years. It used to be fine. Something changed a few years back that made everything run extremely slow. To import a simple 2gb 20 minute file and try to edit it takes FOREVER. It is always either waiting for the audio to sync up or something similar. Often times it makes my whole screen go black for several seconds every time I make an edit. I had the newest version (paid for) but that has even more bugs, so I went back to Version :??? (which is just as slow, but has fewer of the crappy bugs). It is NOT (REPEAT NOT) my computer. I have plenty of RAM, Memory, etc. I run Premiere, After Effects and other much more intensive editing programs without hitches or issues. It is this program. So many people have the same problem - there HAS to be a fix other than saying to check the cache (which I've done) or dropbox us the file (which is irrelevant since just about EVERYONE seems to have the same issues). I really want to like this program. It can be so simple and better to use that Premiere for my smaller projects. But SOMETHING has to be done to fix these bugs. It's CRAZY. Is anyone else able to come up with some solutions? Editing a program by saying "I dont feel like waiting so this cut is good enough" is not a great way to edit.
  4. Something changed about two years ago with videopad. I never had any issues - now (like everyone else) it is so slow it is becoming unusable. It's not my computer which is plenty fast and has plenty of RAM. It's not the preview resolution (which is 512 x 288). It's the program. I have Adobe Premiere on this same computer and it's just fine, so it is not the computer. I prefer using videopad instead of Premiere for small, non-professional projects. But it is too damn slow. I constantly get the "building preview" or "audio is not in sync" just about every time I make a cut. And these are not large files I'm working with - 2gn to 3gn tops. Does anyone have any REAL suggestions? Or is it just that videopad changed their workflow a few years back and this is the result? It's frustrating as hell because I like the simplicity of videopad for low end projects - but dammt the program needs to work.
  5. So after stumbling around, I think I found it. Takes about three extra steps to do. Would be SO MUCH BETTER if you went back to the version that had the preview as well as the Keyframe Line in the Preview window. Would save us all several steps. Way to make it simpler guys - lol !!!!!
  6. In every other program on the web, if you LEFT CLICK and grab an edge of the frame - it should maintain the aspect ratio (at least that's the way it is in just about every other paint or edit program in the world). But here you have to select 4:3 ot 16:9 (which is also not in a dropdown menu instead of the main menu - just one more step to go through). Then you have to CLICK maintain aspect ration. Why not just do what everyone else does and make it so that when we LEFT CLICK and grab the edge it automatically maintains the aspect ratio???
  7. I really dont like 4.33. Since I just downloaded it on my new PC, how do I go get an older version.
  8. I downloaded a version for Mac about two months ago. And now this version for PC tonight (4.33). I ABSOLUTELY HATE THE NEW EFFECTS BOX !!!! But that aside, how do you take a clip from your timeline and add (for example) a ZOOM effect that you can have move to multiple points during that clip. In the other version, you can just click stop the cursor on whatever part of the clip you're at, resize it, and you could clip a marker that would make it go to that point. How do you do that here. Heck, you dont even get the video in the preview pane here like you used to (yes, I know we can bring up the double box). But it was DEFINITELY better the other way - and most people seem to think so. So back to my question - how can I set multiple points in one clip ???
  9. The VideoPad people never get on ANYTHING fast
  10. I agree with you. I think the main point is HOW can they release a product so obviously untested, and WHY must we rely on the kind people of this group to correct the problems that their tech support SHOULD be doing (though often times the do not even acknowledge the problem).
  11. Not sure which is worse - the new version of VideoPad, or the fact there is no "real" way to get anything done with Technical Support. I understand in this new age we live in that Phone Support is a thing of the past - but how the heck do you explain the MULTIPLE problems with this new version, yet (after nearly a month) - NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL has been correct? And anytime you send them a question/issue, you get a "we're working on it" or "we'll check into it" response. Lastly - HOW THE HELL does a company THAT IS CHARGING YOU TO PURCHASE an item release an item as completely screwed up as 3.02? I mean, I could understand if we were talking about something simple like the program periodically has an audio problem or something - but to release something as totally unusable (because of the "building preview" problem and slowness) - and then say "hey forum - test it out and let us know" - how do you release something THAT screwed up and not notice it before it gets out the door.

  12. And AndrewAndrew - while that may help, it is not the proper way to make it work. For some reason, the versions after 2.12 all have the same Building Preview Problem, or they take a much longer time than normal to import a clip (about 1gig). You shouldnt have to "pre edit" the clips and drag them into the timeline - it's not right. It is a bug that REALLY needs to get fixed as there are obviously MANY people having this problem. VideoPad Guys - NCH Guys - PLEASE get this fixed. I am really trying my best to buy this product, but it is really hard when I know it isnt working properly. All the previous "suggestions" or "workarounds" are not the right way to go about it. It didnt use to do this in the older versions. You cant say that it is normal, because I edit on Final Cut, Edius and Adobe and it doesnt do it there either. The reason I like VideoPad is for my personal home, simple use with my kids and their videos - it's easier for them to use. But you have GOT to fix this problem. WAYYYYY to many people are having the same problem.
  13. Have you guys worked out the bug with the ENDLESSLY SLOW preview building. In the oler versions (2.12 is the version I prefer) this was (and is) never a problem. If you import a 1Gig file it takes about 30 seconds to import. If you make a cut, there is no BUILDING PREVIEW to wait for. Seems all the new version are having the same problem with the slowness. Does this new 3.02 version correct that? I just downloaded the trial version, and it does not seem to. Do you have to pay for it to get it to work properly? Just wondering. Thanks, Gibson23

  15. On a side note - have you guys worked out the bug with the ENDLESSLY SLOW preview building. In the oler versions (2.12 is the version I prefer) this was (and is) never a problem.
