  1. It might be a setting in the windows registry. Try changing the following value: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NCH Software\VideoPad\Software There you can find the key "SVAR". Check for the term "VIDEOPADRippleMoveoff" - and if you find it, change it to "VIDEOPADRippleMoveon" This setting helped me when I had the same problem.
  2. This has been discussed some days ago, have a look at this topic: http://nch.invisionzone.com/topic/31905-snapping-split-bar-features-or-not At the end of the topic, I posted a link to a little patch I wrote, because I also don't like this popup. Maybe it can help you.
  3. Hi Takis, I also don't like this little pop-up window and so I wrote a program that can patch your videopad.exe . You can download it here: http://dangerfreak.bplaced.net/temp/BlockScissorsPopupVP.zip It's NOT a virus or anything harmful, and it does NOT destroy your videopad installation. It just creates a patched copy of videopad to your desktop. However, there's absolutely no warranty, that this patch is working for you (for me it works perfectly, tested with beta versions 8.58 - 8.62!). And even though I did the best I can, I'm not liable for any defects that occur after using this program.
  4. Yesterday I had the same problem with version 8.34 (beta). First I thought it might be a good idea to clear the cache ( -> start Videopad & do NOT load any project -> go to options -> disk -> Clear Unused Cache Files), but it didn't help. However, maybe it helps for you? I think it's worth a try. Later I realized that I probably moved or renamed some files and so the project file (.vpj) didn't work correctly anymore. Though I could load the project without any errors, it always got stuck in "processing sound files". So I loaded the .vpj file into an editor and checked all paths manually. They look like this: "&path=C%3A%5CUsers%5CMyUserName%5Videos%5CThisIsAvideoClip.mp4&" (note that \ is encoded to %5C, : to %3A and space to %20 ). Before editing, make sure you have a backup of your original .vpj file. After I found the wrong path and corrected the .vpj file, the "sound processing" problem was gone.
  5. I agree to you - insert mode should always be on. And I also agree to you, that it has something to do with the version you install. However, I found a solution, no matter which version you have installed. It's our "old friend" in the registry called "SVAR". The term "VIDEOPADRippleMoveon" turns on insert mode - if it is "VIDEOPADRippleMoveoff", overwrite is on. SVAR can be found here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NCH Software\VideoPad\Software\SVAR
  6. I'm not sure whether I found a bug or I'm doing something wrong, but there's a problem inserting clips (Videopad Windows version 8.23 beta and previous versions): 1. Load 3 MP4 clips (or more, doesn't matter) into the video clip bin 2. After that, select 2 clips in the video bin and drag them into the timeline 3. Now drag clip 3 into the timeline, between clip 1 and clip 2, but don't drop it yet 4. While pressing the left mouse button, some kind of "grey shadow" appears over clip 2. Note that the shadow changes its size, if you move the mouse arrow to the right and to the left. Right side means "insert clip 3 before clip 2" and in right positon it means "overwrite clip 2 with clip 3". Drop clip 3 now (no matter where). The shadow thing is a good idea and works very well up to this point. Now let's try exactly the same thing, if clip 3 is already on the timeline (as video track #2): 1. Load 3 MP4 clips (or more, doesn't matter) into the video clip bin 2. After that, select 2 clips in the video bin and drag them into the timeline (video track #1) 3. Now drag and drop clip 3 into the timeline as video track #2 (position doesn't matter). 4. Drag clip 3 again and try to drop it exactly between clip 1 and clip 2 in video track #1. Note that the "shadow" doesn't appear this time! Whatever you do, dropping clip 3 always means "overwrite clip 2 with clip 3". I also tried pressing keys SHIFT/ALT/CONTROL or a combination of them, but none of them works as "insert". Is there something wrong with videopad - or is it my mistake?

    Delay on exit?

    @takis: Same here - and even more: If a project is loaded and I try to quit videopad, it needs some minutes to close (it doesn't depend on playing the preview). (Version 8.01)
  8. At least AVI worked for you, that's a step forward. Skipping (using Windows media player) is quite slow for me, too. However, I didn't have any problems uploading AVIs to YouTube yet, they re-render the video anyway, so watching it there works perfectly. @borate: Is it possible, that there is a glitch in the aac audio encoder or the way, Videopad treats it? After all the audio problems I faced myself and I heard of, this seems to be very likely. Why should it work with AVI otherwise?
  9. @ASMR: I also have similar (and other) audio problems with Videopad from time to time. I don't why it happens, but it only happens if I export my video in MP4 format. Using AVI works perfectly - so I have a workaround at least. Maybe you can try that, I'm really curious, if it works for you, too.
  10. @sandman88: I'm using videopad for more than 7 years and from time to time (rare!) I also have this problem. Usually the reason is some fx I added to the clips (or speed change). To find out what it is, I recommend you to split your video into several small sequences (just copy & paste the clips to new sequences). After that, export one sequence after another (menu -> file -> export all sequences) to see, what causes the crash - in your case you already know, the problem must be at the beginning (~2,5%) of your video. When you have pinpointed the root, try to change the clip or the fx, maybe you can get it to work, and please report it here, maybe it's a bug in videopad.
  11. I recently noticed, that one of my computers had big white resize handles at the start and the end of each clip in the timeline. It seems it's a rather new feature, because I had never seen it before - and I didn't really like them. So I searched and finally found a way to turn them off and thought it's a good idea to share that with all of you. If you want to turn these big resize handles on/off, just edit this registry key: Path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NCH Software\VideoPad\Software Value: SVar Data: Change or add this: "VIDEOPADResizeHandlesoff" (turn off) or "VIDEOPADResizeHandleson" (turn on).
  12. You can also use video transitions, just click on the "x" between two images (on the timeline) and select the effect "cube spin" oder "slide". There you can select the direction (from left to right, top to bottom, etc.).
  13. I already had similar problems, even worse, sometimes I edited and saved my video project and when I tried to open it later, videopad always crashed. I don't know the reason for it, but it helped to use another version (an older version!) of videopad to be able to load the project file. Here you can find all old versions: http://oldversiondownload.com
  14. Today I discovered a really weird audio bug. It happened to me before (very rare, because it depends on certain audio tracks, but it happend), so I thought it's time to report it. It's easy to reproduce it: 1. Download the audio track Amazer Lazer from YouTube audio library ( https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary_download?vid=837b7856a4dc14e9 ) and put it into the timeline. It's important to use this audio track, because the bug is very rare and only happens for certain audio tracks. 2. Use a blank clip for the video track 3. Now change the volume of the audio track by clicking on the speaker icon of the audio track in the timeline. Set it to values below 40 (that's important, because higher values seem to work). I used the value 20. 4. Export it as MP4 (that's important, because AVI or other formats seem to work!), video resolution doesn't matter (just use low resolution). It set the video and audio quality to "default quality", but I think it also happens with any other settings (video: auto detect / audio: same as input). 5. Listen to the MP4. The audio has some really weird noises (they sound like compression artifacts). They are quite short and not always at the same position, so you have to listen to the whole audio track carefully. As already mentioned, it doesn't happen for AVI export files (using MP3 for audio) or for audio volumes higher than 40. I tried to recompress the audio track with audacity, I saved it as .WAV and .OGG, but working with these recompressed audio files in Videopad had the same result. Maybe the AAC codec compression has something to do with it?
  15. I can confirm a similar problem, it's easy to reproduce: 1. Put any video clip into the timeline 2. Add an image (portrait format, e.g. 1080x1920) after that 3. Add another image (landscape format, e.g. 1920x1080) after that 4. Add the following effects to the portrait image: a) Letterbox to Aspect Ratio (Auto Aspect Ratio) b) Zoom (select any area) (Letterbox is at the bottom of the effects window, Zoom on top) 5. Export the video - the portrait image will not be shown, it's just black This happens in versions 7.24 and 7.25 beta.
