  1. I've already long since adopted the practice of doing that. I break the entire project into sequences. Then I use the "export all sequences" feature to export all of them before dropping each of those sequences into one clip. So as you may have guessed, that isn't helping right now.
  2. I don't know what that means. The final version of the video is estimated to be in the ballpark of 40 minutes. The highest resolution source file is a 1920x1080, 60fps video in MP4 format. Oh, I already tried clearing the cache. it said there were no cache files to clear. I already have it set up to warn me if it drops below 1,000MB. I haven't gotten such a message yet. No, my current version is the one I use because it was the last one to come out before my 6-month period was over. The first version I had under this license key was 6.32.
  3. I'm currently using Version 7.03. My six months worth of upgrades have long since expired, so I can't upgrade again without paying more money than I can afford to pay right now. However, this is a problem that has only recently started to occur, and I've been on Version 7.03 for a long time now. So I hope you can still assist me. Whenever I insert audio into a sequence and then attempt to play that audio, VideoPad will sometimes soft-lock. What that means is that I will hear the audio play. However, the red marker in the timeline never moves, the triangle icon beneath the preview window never switches to a double bar/pause icon, and the software stops responding to literally input I give it. It doesn't even highlight a file when I hover my mouse over it, let alone do anything when I click on it. The sequence audio will still play (which is why I call it a soft lock instead of a hard lock), but can't stop it from playing. When I reach the end of the sequence, the audio will stop, but the software still doesn't respond to anything. The only way I have found to get out of this softlock is to go into my task manager and end the process. The process isn't even listed as "not responding" in the task manger. For what it's worth, I originally used VideoPad on Windows 7, but kept the v7.03 installation executable and used it after I upgraded to Windows 10, and then used my existing license key for that. However, I've already told this software to run in compatibility mode for Windows 7, and I didn't notice any improvement. I even tried reinstalling the app from my control panel. That doesn't seem to have done anything. Does anyone have any idea what's causing this, and how I can get out of it?
  4. Wait ... where do the terms of service say that? When I installed the software in the first instance, it didn't say anything about a duration. EDIT: See, right here: It says "Lifetime License:" https://secure.nch.com.au/cgi-bin/register.exe?software=videopad
  5. Downloading that version cost me my license! This was only for the non-commercial use! Now I have to pay for a new license!
  6. When the project is currently exporting, I can understand it taking up 100% of my processor. But as of Version 7.05, VideoPad takes up 100% of my processor even when it's idle. I don't even have to actually be making any edits! I can simply switch to firefox to check something, and my pointer on-screen is slow to respond to my mouse movements! Upon switching to my task manager, I find that the problem is that my processor is maxed out at 100%! I have an AMD FX-8350, the most powerful processor my motherboard can take! So I am not short on CPU horsepower. This is just unacceptable. Please tell me you have plans to fix this!
  7. I just upgraded to version 7.05. However, there's a big problem with this version that I've noticed almost immediately: When I take a snapshot of an image that already some transparency to it (e.g. by me applying a green screen effect), the transparency does not carry over to the snapshot. Instead, the background where the transparency is supposed to be is instead just black. If we want the background to be black, we can simply place a black blank rectangle behind the transparent image! Taking this feature out doesn't add anything, but it does make image & thumbnail creation more complicated. Please put that feature back in the next version! Or at the very least, give me an option in the settings to keep the transparency in a snapshot! EDIT: I'm also not a fan of the fact that, when I press Ctrl+T to add some text to the clip, it automatically has the words "title text" entered into it. I'm just going to replace that text with something else anyway, so all that does is add a superfluous step where I have to delete the default text before I can begin typing the message I want. The old system of it simply being blank by default worked perfectly.
  8. You're accusing me of lying to you? You shouldn't need my specific file. I get this problem with any file that has multiple audio tracks.
  9. When I record raw footage using OBS studio, I usually record my headphones and microphone on separate audio tracks so I can edit them independently. I'm currently using version 7.03 of NCH VideoPad, and when I load a raw recording into a project, it automatically detects when it's a multiple audio track file and asks which audio track I want to load into the project. However, no matter which track I select, it always loads track 1 into the project. Reverting to version 6.32 fixes this problem.
  10. I'm using version 6.30 right now. I reverted back to that version after I encountered a bug in Version 6.32 that I wasn't able to get help with on this board. The option to export all sequences is greyed out. I can't select it. https://i.postimg.cc/sDF2pL9S/NCH-Troubleshooting-1.png Any suggestions?
  11. I noticed that VideoPad has a compression audio effect. https://i.postimg.cc/qvcqC1D5/Compressor.png Can you just teach me how to get the effect I want using that instead? How do I set the maximum decibel level, and how so I set the minimum decibel level?
  12. I'm not seeing any option for a compression effect. https://i.postimg.cc/tTgrjmsV/WaveOad.png Where is it?
  13. But I would have to purchase another license key to do that, wouldn't I?
  14. So VideoPad doesn't have these effects? I can see Compression in VideoPad. But I can't seem to figure out how to make it work like I want it.
  15. When I'm choosing background music to use in my videos, the songs will often have varying levels of amplitude. However, I need my background music to be relatively stable throughout video. I don't want the music so loud that it overshadows my voice or sound effects, but I also don't want the low points in the music to be so soft that the audience can't hear the music at all. Is there a way for me to reduce the maximum amplitude of my audio track to a certain maximum decibel level without affecting any audio that was already beneath that decibel level to begin with? Also, is there a way for me to do the opposite? To amplify portions of the audio track that are below a certain minimum decibel range, to bring them up to the minimum, without touching any audio that's already above that decibel level to begin with? Perhaps I could put those two effects together to ensure that my audio tracks are always within a certain decibel range.
