at my wits end

Recommended Posts

I'm so frustrated I can't even find the words. Videopad 4.11 worked marvelously, but v 7 is WORTHLESS.so far as I can see.

They have made it impossible to expand the audio tracks at the bottom  to be able to see more than one at a time and if you've got multiple audio files to drop in at various points, just forget it. At the same  time it is impossible to collapse the "drag and drop your video, text and image clips here from the file bins" area enough to give you a little space  to see those audio tracks!  It may be THEORETICALLY possible to create multiple audio tracks, but in practice it is completely unworkable as it is currently configured, so far as I can see.

And the damned thing crashed every time I tried to export a video until I tried using .mp4 instead of the .avi format I've used for years. And I have no idea how long that'll last now that I see another thread about installing updated drivers because I tried to make sense of  the instructions for that till I felt I was falling down a rabbit hole and simply gave up. What the hell  good is software that forces you to jump through a bunch of additional, incomprehensible hoops just to make it work as advertised?  

Version 4.11 worked without ever crashing, even on huge, 2 1/2 hour long projects involving HUNDREDS of images, video clips and audio files, and shifting audio files from one track to another when you had great number to work with was no problem at all. WHY do they have to keep breaking things that don't need fixing? 

I had prepared an image to illustrate my complaint about the audio tracks, but there doesn't seem to be any option for attaching it.  I'd gladly trade what I paid for v 7 to get v 4.11 back.

An update to this entry: 

Ilich, at the NCH Customer Service Team was kind enough to send a link to the legacy Videopad 4.11, which I have installed on my pc, and it appears to be working properly.
