    Video cache doesn't update...

    I just discovered a problem using V6.24 and V6.28 beta of videopad concerning the video cache of the sequence preview (export works well). Example: Drag any mp4 video clip A to video track 1 of the timeline. Now drag another mp4 video clip B to video track 2 of the timeline, "on top" of video A (video B must be shorter than video A). Preview the video - everything is ok. Now click at the end marker of video B and drag it to the left, make it a little bit shorter. Start the preview again - it's exactly the same as before, the cache probably doesn't update and therefore still shows the whole clip B. Note: If you change the preview frame rate in the options or if you move video B from video track 2 to video track 3, the cache seems to update. After that, the preview is correct.

    Black frame glitch

    I can confirm the problem (using V6.24 and V6.28 beta). It's easy to reproduce the problem, you don't need a saved project. Example: Just drag any image A to video track 1 of the timeline. Set the length of it to 30 seconds. Now drag another image B to video track 2 of the timeline, somewhere in the middle of the first image, e.g. starting position 10 seconds. Set its length to 5 seconds, click on the fade in icon and set it to 0.5 seconds or another value less than 1 second. Now click play and you will notice that image B is blending in, but after maybe 0.4 seconds videopad switches back to image A (100% visible, no transparency) for at least one frame and after that it switches back to image B and continues the blending. You also can see it in the exported video. Note: Fading time values of 1 second or more work well.

    Export (size) bug / beta 6.27

    I just tested beta version 6.27 and exported a video. It all worked well, but the file size of the video was way too big. First I thought I made a mistake in the export settings, but a second test showed the same result. It seemed, videopad ignored the given video bitrate. My export settings: - Preset:Custom - File Format: MP4 - MP4 Encoding settings: Compressor H264, Video Quality/Bitrate 6000 kbps, Lossless Export Off (Re-encode Video), Audio Compressor AAC, Preferred Channel Numbers Same as input, Audio Quality/Bitrate 160 kbps - Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - 1080p HD - Frame rate: Constant 60 fps The result: I checked the details of the file properties (windows explorer) and it showed a data rate of more than 50000 kBit/s! So Videopad really ignored my settings.

    Export quality

    Same here... I'm not sure, but I think the bitrate sometimes is set to 24kbs, if you change other export settings like the filename or the frame rate. Unfortunately I don't know a solution.

    Help! New version doesn't take snapshots?

    If your window is too small, the snapshot button is not visible. Click on the >> button ... see below:

    How do I import fonts for use in "Add Text?"

    Just install them in your Windows operating system - after that you can select them in videopad.

    Lossless export has different specs?

    I just downloaded your original mp4 and made a losless export. The export file is slighty smaller (losless file: 42067995 bytes, original 42068111 bytes), the frame rate and the bitrates for video and audio are identical (Videopad version 6.02 beta).

    Your suggestions please for video slideshow

    The display time depends on the details of the photos, I usually set it to 3-4 seconds with a transition time of 1 second. I think that works best.

    Preview buffers even on 360p on powerful computer

    Unfortunately it has nothing to do with the cache. Even after I let VP do all its caching and the cpu has enough free time, I have the buffering problem as described above.

    Preview buffers even on 360p on powerful computer

    I have the same problem, powerful computer, but I always get "buffering" while previewing (the more clips, the worse). Changing the preview resolution or the fps doesn't help. The preview also gets stuck nearly after every clip/scene. And once the preview is running, I often can't stop it anymore - the video is stuck, sound is still playing, but videopad does not respond to any interactions. Sometimes I have to wait until the whole sequence is over, before I can continue working with videopad. However, I think I know the reason for that. If I change the preview fps to any value, the preview doesn't get stuck after one clip (no buffering) - unfortunately for a few seconds only. I'm pretty sure, it has something to do with the background queues (videopad is always working in the background). These background processes obviously are so demanding, that the preview doesn't have enough CPU time to work correctly. Unfortunately there is no way to stop these background processes...
