VideoPad export restrictions on Home version.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a home user and ran into export restriction issues. I initially installed the vppsetup.exe version so the tech support advised me to download the correct version for home users:

I have done this but I still get restriction issues outputting in any of the 1080 formats. I haven't tested others.

Also, I checked the pricing models and they are not very convenient for people with low incomes. I see that the lifetime licence is $US69.95 which I just can't afford at the moment (but I would pay when I can). So I checked the monthly subscription model which I was willing to pay and found that you have to pay 12 months up front! This seems pointless considering the price is approximately the same as the lifetime licence.

Any advice is appreciated.

Export formats are limited with the non-licensed versions.  Still, 1080p may be available.

In the export File Format field try .avi or .mpg.  In the Resolution field, set it to 1080p.

It appears that 1080 can't export to MPG but it does work exporting to AVI.

I am sure I used the 1080 export just the other day and it worked. Not sure about whether or not AVI is better for me or not so will have to research it.

AVI is a container.  Explore the Advanced Encoder Options field.  Many audio and video encodings are available.

H.264 encoded files are often MP4 files (another container),  but they can also be AVI or MKV.
