  1. Videopad process

    If you have many tracks or effects, increasing the priority of the VideoPad process will probably help, as it's probably the bottleneck. If you have the encoding set to use a lot of CPU (e.g. very high quality + high resolution), then it's the bottleneck and increasing the process priority of VideoPad won't really help. (i.e. If you have a single track, just with some cuts etc. it won't help).
  2. sequence getting automatic black background

    For anyone coming to this thread later, "PNg 32bpp" is being renamed to "PNG With Transparency" for future releases.
  3. preview format default settings

    To answer your original question, the default preview settings are: Resolution: 768w x 432h (this is a 16:9 aspect ratio) Framerate: 30.00 fps While it's a non-standard resolution (i.e. not 360p, 480p, 720p, or 1080p), it most closely matches the area most monitors display the preview with.
  4. sequence getting automatic black background

    Right, one of us may have misunderstood. The black background in the sequence preview isn't "real", it's just what the video is displayed against. There's no need to use the "blank clip + green screen" method, as there's nothing to remove. Unfortunately, VideoPad doesn't support encoding alpha into the .webm format at the moment. The only way currently to achieve this in VideoPad is to export to a .gif, but that sounds like it may not be useful to you. (There's also Image Sequence export, but that sounds like it would be even less useful to you).
  5. sequence getting automatic black background

    If you look at the top-left of the panel where the video is displayed, there are 2 tabs: "Clip Preview" and "Sequence Preview". "Clip Preview" is used for editing a single clip at a time, and has a standard "transparent" checkered background. (It will display whatever clip is currently selected, either on the timeline ("track clips") or the panel on the left ("bin clips", in the "clip bin"). "Sequence Preview" shows what will be exported, and automatically applies a black background. This is done because almost all video formats don't support transparency, so this is most likely what you're going to get when exporting. If you don't want black in the background of the sequence preview, you need to move the image clip to a higher track, and put in the background underneath it i.e. ____________________________________ "Video track 2: | caterpillar-logo.gif | " "Video track 1: | blank clip | " ____________________________________ Also, it would have been better to create a new thread for this, as the one you posted in was over a year old, and pertained to a different version of VideoPad.
  6. Can't add audio file

    Hi @Simon Ghoul, Thanks for the link, this would be a lot harder without it. Long story short, the specific format of MP3 used isn't decoded properly in VideoPad (I've filed a bug report with the audio team at NCH). To work around this, I'd recommend using Audacity (or similar software) to convert it from mp3 to a WAV file, and then you can import that into VideoPad. Sorry for any inconvenience!
  7. Videopad cannot open my vpj

    @Josh2901 The next release of VideoPad will check that it was successful when saving, and alert you of any such problems in future.
  8. Video export speed affected by fps (frames per second)?

    Agree with @c_major. It will have to encode less frames, so export time will be faster (in that particular case, you'd be looking at a minimum 20% speed increase) and it would also eliminate a frame-rate conversion process, so it would export even faster. The extra ram might have helped, but only if other programs were also consuming a large amount of ram.
  9. Exported video keeps freezing in consistent place

    @EricCawley That's strange. How much ram were those programs using? it shouldn't be that high (unless you have some massive documents open in word, or just a billion tabs open in chrome).
  10. Exported video keeps freezing in consistent place

    @EricCawley Can I ask what the other programs are? They shouldn't be a problem, as VideoPad definitely can't use 16GB of ram (it's only a 32-bit app, so can access 4GB at absolute most). It sounds like maybe something they're doing is interfering with VideoPad. If you don't want to post everything here, a PM would be fine too.
  11. HELP

    Disclaimer: This is a personal "what I think" and shouldn't be taken as legal advice If you monetize a YouTube video you made with the free version of VideoPad, that's a problem. As long as you're not monetizing it (e.g. getting ad revenue) there's not a problem, because it wouldn't count as "commercial use".
  12. Create Sequence from Clip in VideoPad 5

    In the clip preview there should be a button saying "Place" that puts the clip on the timeline when it is clicked.. If you want to drag and drop, At the bottom of the white window on the middle left (where your clips are) there are two segments, "Timeline" and "Storyboard". Please click on "Timeline". Drag one of the clips from the white window on the middle left, to the middle-bottom of the main window. This should place the clip on the timeline, and it should auto-snap to the start of the sequence.
  13. VP 5.01: How to globally edit multiple unliked audio clips

    If you want to get a section of the sequence's audio as a single clip, you can select the sequence in the clip bin (left of the preview by default) (see the left-most "Sequences" tab), right click, and select "Save Sequence Audio as New File" (Alternatively, it's also available under the "Clip" menu item). If you want to keep all the clips together, but still separate, then c_major's way of grouping the clips is better. In this case there is no way of "Globally" editing the clips, but if you have more than 1 selected, the effects dialog has "Append effect chain to other selected clips" and "Replace effect chain in other selected clips" which can be used to apply the current effects to all selected clips.
  14. Pasting over instead of inserting clips

    This behaviour (overwriting any existing clips instead of inserting) can be caused by 2 things: 1) If you have the Alt key pressed when positioning the clip, it will overwrite instead of insert, or 2) If you have any locked tracks VideoPad will be unable to move clips, and will default to overwriting instead. I see in your pictures that Audio Track 2 is locked, which is preventing the Insert behaviour. I would recommend Unlock Audio Track 2 Reposition the clip you want (Note that this will split and move the music on Audio Track 2) Move the clip back together on Audio Track 2) Lock Audio Track 2 to prevent any further unwanted changes. I hope this helps!
  15. Crop & Blur at the same time. Is this possible?

    In your screenshot, I see that you have multiple effects applied to the clip. However, you then say that Crop doesn't work. This would be because you still have the mask active, so only a crop that affects the area inside the mask will have any effect. What you want is "Mask -> Blur -> Clear Mask -> Crop" (the Clear Mask effect is the button with the red X (third from the left) next to the Add Mask button (second from the left)). If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
