VideoPad freezes while exporting video (always at 15%)

Recommended Posts

I've edited a 25 min. video from other 21 short videos. I've tryed to export using fddshow and H264 encoders, but the program always freezes at 15%...

Any idea?

 

Tghank You!

I am having the same problem with the latest version of Videopad. This never happened before i upgraded to the latest version. Mine freezes but not necessarily in the same spot during mp4 creation. Any ideas???

Not sure if this will help any of you but I've had the same problem and the solution for me was finding the point in the video where it kept freezing and then deleting or changing some of the effects at that point in the video. The slow motion effect for example always made my video stop rendering once it got to that efect.

This has been happening to me too! I have a 15 min holiday film using HD 1080p video files and it crashes at around 7% whether it be as a file or trying to burn to DVD. I think my PC may have something to do with as it was struggling when I was uploading the video files into the programme.

 

What is the recommended spec for a PC when working with VideoPad and HD footage? My PC is quite old, only 1GB RAM and a 3.06Ghz Celeron CPU. I have all the vid files kept on a 1TB external drive rather than on the PC though. But the programme still crashes.

What's the spec of your PC, is it more powerful than mine (see 5th post above)?

Darn, I have the same problem with my video. It was stuck at 95%, but I followed PaulX's advice and it got all the way to 99%, then stuck again. And no amount of splicing the video or changing effects seems to help it finish :/

 

Edit: Turns out, with enough splicing and transitions, I was able to get past the stuck point.

For folks like PaulX, I've had the same problem but only with slow motion clips .When the render reaches a slow motion clip, it quits. My work around is to do the slow motion effect to the individual clip(s) first (before doing any final edit), and rendering that as a new clip. Then the new clip(s) can be added to the time line during the final edit and the video will render out fine. No guarantees, but it works for me.

Oy, I should've thought of that. Thanks for the idea. I had a similar problem with a set of slow motion clips. Though when I got the export to work, the video was blacked out (as it was in the preview, but I was hoping the export would work better than preview) -- See my other thread, hopefully it can be fixed in the next version so someone else doesn't hit the same problem: http://nch.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/20643-preview-going-black/

I bought the software and installed it. When I am exporting the project to any format, it will "convert" until it gets down to 99%. Once it gets to this point, the software hangs up and will not complete the video. I have even left it at 99% overnight (six hours) and it does not finish the export. I have uninstalled the software, checked all my drivers, and reinstalled the software. I have bought a license (still will not work). I am running Windows 8.1. Any help?

I got the same problem, but at 97% and only 3 seconds left...... forever! I tried to call and email but nobody responded. It seems that we should pay for support as bugs are embedded inside the software. Very distressing as we tried so many hours on editing and cannot finished. Will look for a reputable brand.
