Exporting

Recommended Posts

I import video full screen.  When burned to DVD it's in a small black box, not full screen.  Why.  What can I do to export full screen?

Thanks.

What's the file format?  What export settings were used?

If feasible, with your project on the time time line, click FILE|SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT.  Upload every file that results to DropBox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive or the like.

Make the link public and post it here.  Someone will burn your file as a test, attempting to spot the problem.  If there are many files, zip them first, then upload the ZIP file.

Where is the time time line to click  FILE|SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT?

Have tried many times with the same result.  It looks like its cropped.

Hi

With your project on the timeline click the green FILE button top left on the toolbar. This will open a menu.  Now click the option Save Portable Project As.

In the window that comes up select a folder from the display, or browse to a folder or just click Desktop from the left hand list.The folder name will appear in the box.  Now click Select a folder. Your project and all the clip files along with a .vpj  project file will be copied to a folder in the selected destination. This will be named with the date and time. All that is needed to recreate your project on a different PC is contained this folder.

This your portable project. It can be transferred to another PC or a hosting site like dropbox etc. from where it can be downloaded  and  opened by the recipient for examination.

As suggested earlier,

Upload every file that results from your portable save ... to DropBox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive or the like.  These servers can be used without charge;  create an account.

Make the link public and post it here.  Someone will burn your file as a test, attempting to spot the problem.  If there are many files, zip them first, then upload the ZIP file.

You have uploaded the completed project, Ted, but that's not what's needed in order to recreate it here.  Please follow the above instructions to upload the result of clicking on the FILE menu, then on SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT AS.   It it those files, including the VPJ file, that are needed in order to troubleshoot your issue.  ZIP all the files, then upload the zip file.

One more step, Ted.  You need to make the link public (share it) for those who either do not have a DropBox account or don't want to link their Google email address.

I have to upgrade to share.  I guess. It won't let me.

Then sign up for another (free) service.  Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive work well.

If you already have a Google or MS account, then simply log in - to drive.google.com or onedrive.live.com with your user ID and password.

No.  Sharing your files on those sites has nothing to do with Videopad.

Just upload the zip file to the server, as instructed above and allow the file to be shared.  That's usually accomplished by right-clicking on the file and clicking "share' link" or similar language,, which should copy it to your clipboard.  Then paste that link here.

You will have to sign up for an account with Google or Microsoft, if you don't have one already.
