  1. The .vpj file contains the complete paths of all media files. If you just copy them to another computer, the file paths must be exactly the same, otherwise loading the .vpj file takes very long. So my guess is, that you saved the files to different paths. To avoid this problem, follow borate's instructions (file -> save as portable project).
  2. Sometimes I have a similar problem and maybe the reason is the same for you. After cutting a lot of scenes it sometimes happens to me, that there is a little rest of a clip (a few milliseconds) I have missed. Because I usually work with the timeline, this little clip is hard to see, I have to zoom in very close to the transition to see it or to switch to the storyboard. Maybe this also happened to you?
  3. @CrystalBull: For me, version 7.10 (link from borate) also had the transition issue. So if it doesn't work, try using version 7.01 (download: http://oldversiondownload.com ). That's the version I'm currently working with.
  4. @Nat: That describes it perfectly - and audio gets out of sync for that clip (only).
  5. I have the same problem, the options don't matter. It happens loading a .vpj file from version 7.00 (two clips and a transition between them). It seems, the second clip gets stuck for a.moment and that's why the audio gets out of sync. As soon as the next clip starts (clip three, if you add another one), the audio sync is correct again.
  6. I'm not quite sure, when the export video encoding settings of Videopad were changed, it's already some time ago. At the moment, you only can change the bitrate for MP4 videos (H264 codec). In my opinion this does not work very well, even at high bitrate settings I often have (short) sequences with visible artefacts, and sometimes it's even a bit blurry. This didn't happen with the previous quantizer function (in Videopad version 5 as far as I know). You could enter a certain quality value and even though the average bitrate of the whole video was lower than it is now, there were no quality problems. The video file size also was much smaller. At the moment, I always export my videos with "default quality" to have the least loss of quality - after that, I reencode the video using Avidemux (to get a much smaller export file), because this nice freeware still has a quantizer, that works very well. I really wish, the developers of Videopad will add this quality quantizer again...
  7. Hi @plevintampabay , I probably found a solution, at least it worked for me: 1. Go to Options, and set the width and the height of the preview format to a 9:16 aspect ratio, e.g. 180 x 320, 360 x 640, 720 x 1280, etc. Then click OK to save these options. 2. Edit your video 3. Export your video as a vertical video (9:16), just use any of the matching presets. Hope it works for you, too!
  8. Another way to highlight several consecutive clips is to left-click the first clip on the timeline, then press and hold the shift key and left-click on the last clip. After that, release the shift key, press CTRL C to copy and CTRL V to paste it (e.g. into another sequence).
  9. I don't know what the point is - but I know a workaround for it. Go to the menu "Tools -> Options" and change the preview format to the same aspect ratio as the desired export format (example: Export format = 600 x 1200, preview = 200 x 400 etc. ). After that, export the video.
  10. Confirmed... same problem with version 7.02.
  11. Yes, put a clip into the timeline/storyboard, then right-click on it and select "change clip speed...". Set the speed value below 100% to slow the video down.
  12. Hi Gabriel, I can understand your feelings and to be honest, when I started using VideoPad, I had similar problems (and feelings πŸ˜‰ ). Because I was not happy with VideoPad, I spent months searching for another and better video editing software. I really tested a lot of other editors again and again, but in the end I continued using VideoPad. Meanwhile I can't imagine using another software. You now may ask "why?" 1. Since I'm using proxy editing ( http://nch.invisionzone.com/topic/26563-proxy-editing ), I don't have performance problems anymore while editing. I know, many other editors don't need that, but it really is worth the little effort. In practice, I recompress my original video clips anyway (using a little and free tool called "Handbrake") to save disk space. The only thing I had to do was adding a second task to Handbrake, which scales down my original video clips. No big deal. 2. I also experienced that exporting a video can take very long. This depends much on the video format (e.g. x265 is somewhat slow) or the number and kind of effects you add to your clips. For large projects, I allocate my video clips into several sequences and export all sequences (not the whole project) when I have finished editing. So if I detect a mistake in one if the sequences later, I only have to correct and export this sequence and not the whole project. If I'm satisfied with the result, I merge all sequences with Avidemux (free tool / could also be done with VideoPad). 3. VideoPad is extremely small (only ~2.5MB). It does not have tons of unnecessary stuff, that only consumes your disk space and installing only needs a few seconds. I really love that πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ 4. Most important fact: VideoPad is so easy to use, that you don't really need a manual. In my opinion the user interface is the best you can find in the universe πŸ˜‰ . And if you still have questions, you will get help here in this forum. Give it a try! πŸ™‚
  13. Confirmed, something seems to be wrong with the preview. I tried version 6.30, 7.01 an 7.02, version 6.30 worked perfectly and with versions 7.01 and 7.02 the preview was just black. However, the clip was speed up (audio played very fast). Then I tried to save the little project, closed and reopened VideoPad and loaded the project. Now the preview was black and the audio was like muted, I couldnd't hear anything. My test conditions: I took a random .mp4 clip that was 3:15.820 long and dropped it into the timeline four times in sequence 1. Then I created a new sequence 2, dropped in sequence 1, set the in/out point to 11:00/12:00 and the clip speed to 500%.
  14. Per favore descrivi esattamente cosa hai fatto prima che VideoPad si arresti. Se possibile, prova ad usare il forum inglese (in inglese): http://nch.invisionzone.com/forum/85-videopad Ci sono molti piΓΉ utenti che ti possono aiutare.
  15. Hi Nat, I think I know why. Let's have a look at the registry here: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NCH Software\VideoPad\Software", key "SVar". There are two parameters, that can control the menu button design: "VIDEOPADTtbham" and "LLIBTtbhamtxt" If both parameters are missing, the menu just shows "File". If you set "VIDEOPADTtbhamon", only the hamburger menu is visible. If you also add "LLIBTtbhamtxton", the hamburger menu will be extended by the label "Menu" πŸ™‚
