  1. Yeah, in the original they were just random channels I was flipping through. I got the idea to use VP's scale and positioning to put the Plan 9 trailer on the TV. It turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself 😛 If you notice, my counterpart walks in front of the screen at the end, so that took a bit of careful editing to get just right. One of the things that turned out just as I had hoped it would.
  2. I share with you my big project that I put together with VideoPad. I made a movie some 20 years ago with a friend and with the features of VP was able to put together a new version from original master takes and add 2018 special effects. I imagine you will spot the VP contributions And so, as if the world was clamoring for it, here is our sequel to Plan 9 From Outer Space. NOTE: Best viewed on a computer with good stereo speakers. Plan 19 From Outer Space

    Deleting Unused

    I don't believe so, as VIdeoPad uses "non-destructive editing". You can pull the needed 10 seconds down into a sequence and then export that to its own video. Then close the project (so VP is no longer tied to the 2 minute video) and then delete what you don't want directly from your hard drive.

    Exporting issue since the latest updates

    c_major, Thanks for the response. This project, as is with most of my projects, consists of numerous mini-projects - 15 second or so videos that I put in effects, texts, export to their own videos. Those videos will be combined into a final project. So I was having to redo the export settings for each of those mini-projects. I think probably most of the inconsistencies I was experiencing was because sometimes I saved projects after exporting and sometimes I didn't. However, I have just verified at least one occurrence of this changing export results. I wrote down each of the project names and what happened when I went to File-Export. Seven of them had the correct File options (not disc, as in my screenshot) and also had the folder and resolution correct. For one of the 3 that had shown the disc export dialogue box, I used the Export option from the toolbar and exported to my folder and at 1080p. I then saved the project, closed it, then loaded it up again. File -Export then went to File and correct folder / 1080p. I thought that was my answer to the inconsistencies I was experiencing, but then I loaded up one of the other 2 projects that had previously gone to a Export Disc menu and *that* time File - Export brought up the export file menu with my folder and 1080p selected, even though I hadn't done anything with the project previously but close it. So I don't know what to think about that now. Request: Would it be possible to have something in the options to put the default export folder and resolution? That way File- Export should always behave the way I expect it to. Alternatively have a checkbox item in settings that will keep export settings to saved projects (the way you changed it to) or to keep the most recent export settings (the way it used to)?

    Exporting issue since the latest updates

    Here's a screenshot of what I'm getting when I click File - Export Video.... As a note of interest, I had to try several times to get it to come up because it was actually working correctly for a while there. I loaded up three project in a row and they were coming up with the correct file export window. Then I loaded one up and it gave the disc export one. I went back to one of the previous projects I had just gotten to work correctly and that time it gave the disc export again. So it seems to be happening randomly.
  6. I seem to be experiencing some inconsistencies with exporting since the last couple of updates. It used to be I would always use the File - Export option when doing a series of exports and it remembered my file destination folder and export settings (1080petc). After the ... I think 6.23 update... that now brings up a dialogue box that's trying to create a disc. I thought it was just an intended change so I started going through the Export tab or Export option in the tool bar. Going either of those routes produce the same results. Sometimes it remembers my previous export options, but most of the time it doesn't and I have to guide it to my directory and change 4K to 1080p. To muddy things, as a test I just clicked on File - Export and *that* time it brought up the dialogue box it used to with the file export (not disc export) options with my preferred folder directory and resolution. But I'm guessing I'll try it later and it'll bring back the disc export screen. ETA: I just tried to export again with File - Export and back came the disc export options. In addition, when I do get the correct file export options I get two variations of it. One has the templates (like Youtube) drop down menu and the other does not. I can still select 1080p from the resolution drop down menu, though, it's just odd. And I should clarify, I still have VideoPad open,. I'm not closing it down and reloading it in between these tests.

    Pan / zoom in on a target area?

    Nationalsolo, Yeah, that's just how I found out it works! Thanks to you and borate for your expert guidance!

    Pan / zoom in on a target area?

    Okay, I had some time tonight so tested it out. To quote Sir Robin from Holy Grail: "Oh, that's easy!" For some reason I got the idea that to do something like that, you had to add a bunch of key frames to move it step by step in half- or quarter-second intervals. That would be been tedious. But all I did was add a keyframe at the beginning, then added a keyframe at the end after zooming in to how I wanted it to end up. Turned out perfect. Thanks, borate!

    Pan / zoom in on a target area?

    Thanks, borate. I'll try that when I get to some days off so I have time to really get into it. I only have a vague idea of how key frames work. Is it that you move an image and set a key frame every... so many frames... to show where it is moving within the timeline? If so, how many do you need to put in and what is the minimal frame interval to have an image move from point A to point B? ETA: Oh.. I've watched that tutorial before. For some reason I'm just not getting it from that tutorial.
  10. I have a project I just started working on. It includes a series of still pictures of different people that are displayed for 5 seconds, and I want to do a slow zoom in on the person's face, like they do on some TV shows. I can use the pan and zoom (think that's what it's called) but that goes to the center of the image. Usually I need it to go up and right or left. I tried to combine it with position slide up or down, but that doesn't look right as it brings down black areas that are apparently created by the zoom process. Does this require the use of key frames, or is there some easy way to do it. If it requires key frames, I might have to finally get down to learning how to do that.

    Release Note v6.23

    I think Nat means the replies to your "Audio - Mono Channel With Multiple Tracks" thread.

    Can I use free version to make YouTube videos?

    benkyearn, Yeah, I understand. This topic just made me wonder that, since I was formerly unaware of this YouTube rule.

    Can I use free version to make YouTube videos?

    I'm wondering how anyone would know that a particular video up on YouTube was put together using Videopad.

    Exporting video is too long.

    While searching for a particular issue, I ran across a thread on here from several years ago that said the developers wanted to concentrate on "average computers" and that more advanced systems wouldn't be of any benefit. I don't know if that philosophy has changed or not.

    Created video sound only, no video (no photos)

    Hi, Lynne. Just to cover the basics: you did place your video and audio file onto the timeline? And when you preview from the timeline, it plays correctly?
