Text --> crashes + text missing after rendering

Recommended Posts

The tittle basically says it all.

 

I have a habit of using a lot of text in my videos, which for some reason simply doesn't seem to work with video pad. The most extreme case I've had so far involved something like 70 individual pieces of text (added via the shiny add text button on version 3.0.2) and VideoPad simply couldn't handle it. The program kept crashing every couple of minutes while editing and simply refused to render the video. Even lesser use of text didn't turn out too well; I tried making another project with about 20 pieces of text and while it did manage to render it turns out most of my clever side comments are missing.

 

So the question is, is there anything I can do to make this work, or am I better off finding a program that actually gets the job done? I'd rather stick with VideoPad since I find it easy to use and it has all the features I need, but just having an amazing vpj file isn't going to do me any good.

 

EDIT: I figured out these might be needed:

OS: Windows 7 home premium 64bit

CPU: i5-3750K 3.40GHz

GPU: Radeon HD 7850

RAM: 16GB

HDD space remaining: ~600GT

 

Basically, I doubt the problem is with my computer

A couple of crash bugs reported in v3.02 have been fixed in v3.04. The latter hasn't been released yet, and there's no guarantee that you're seeing one of the same bugs, but you can try the beta if you're feeling game: http://www.nchsoftwa...eta/vpsetup.exe

I suppose it's worth trying, but I have a nagging feeling I'm doing something wrong here. Adding text isn't supposed to be difficult, so why does it seem to be? If the problem is the sheer amount of text clips, how are ordinary subtitles done?

I think I've found my problem, I simply couldn't see the obvious answer: there is a separate button for text and subtitles. Text button creates a text clip that can be dragged to the timeline while subtitle button allows you to make subtitles without generating huge amounts of extra clips to worry about. From the looks of it I lose the ability to turn my texts into fancy angles, but that's about it, so intro's etc aside there's no reason not to use subtitles instead of text. I'm not really sure why these are two separate things, but now that I've figured it out I don't really care so long as it works.

 

Basically, I'll need to test this, but seems like I just solved my problem. Thanks for the help and hopefully someone notices this before doing the same rookie mistake as I did :rolleyes:
