  1. Try the freebie MediaInfo utility prog., or video GSpot and those should tell you.
  2. It's annoying that ctrl-A / select all doesn't work, which means that adding a load of clips means ctrl+E.. release ctrl key.. down arrow.. ctrl+E.. release ctrl key.. down arrow.. ctrl+E.. release ctrl key.. down arrow.. ctrl+E.. release ctrl key.. down arrow.. etc - very RSI carpal tunnel inducing There's an easier way : * Click the first clip in the list * ctrl+shift+End selects them all! * ctrl+E adds the lot to the timeline HNY
  3. Yes, it's because the Panasonic AVCHD Lite is 25 (or 29.97) fps in a transport stream marked for playback as "show each frame twice" giving 50.0 (or 59.94 depending upon region/model). If you can't find a VideoPad output option that copes well with this (and I'd have liked to use FFDSHOW but you can't change the sound from PCM or it changes away from FFDSHOW again - at least it does on the trial version?), then prior conversions are the order of the day. I convert first because I couldn't get clip-to-clip transitions working well, either when editing or in the final render. I do use FFDSHOW with PCM sound from Prism, because uncompressed sound doesn't matter for temporary AVI files which get deleted once I've "made my movie"
  4. I've gotten used to converting to mp4-in-AVI with Prism (or VirtualDub) before editing in Videopad, that's just the way it is for now. Let me guess - AVCHD Lite from a little Panasonic digicam?

    Open Email to NCH

    I'm glad someone replied - thanks I was kinda hoping to get some response from NCH... maybe they're away on holiday or something!
  6. I emailed this 8 days ago, but I haven't heard anything. Before I wander off and leave, I thought I might as well post it here. : Hi Just an observation or two, with good intentions - The VideoPad forum is starting to fill up with spam as people realise that the forums aren't policed by NCH. Can I ask if NCH would consider giving it a bit more attention, appoint moderators, or at least provide a "report spam" option? Also, having unanswered questions on there doesn't seem to be giving a good impression, I'm sorry to say. I'm trying my best to help, but a bit more communication from NCH wouldn't go amiss - in particular it would help if we were kept up to date about whether bugs are being tackled or fixed and when we can expect new versions, etc. It's off-putting to wonder if a product is a dead-end and not being developed any more. Wishing you continued success, Cheers
  7. Oh, we believe you Sorry, but until NCH starts participating in these forums or answers emails, then I'll have to assume it's abandonware and isn't being developed any more.
  8. Cheers Jack, I'm glad your titles are working now Yes, I've been using it long enough that it popped up a message the other day saying something like "Isn't it about time you upgraded?" I prefer to 'pay' them by spreading the word on other forums and by trying to help here.
  9. I've never seen the green star not appear - unless the clip isn't wide enough on the screen; did you try zooming in the timeline (so it scrolls rather than having the whole thing fit on screen at once) - ? If the green star is there, then you can go back and edit the title. Multi-line titles would be nice but can't be done in this version - I have tried to point that out to NCH ... but beggars can't be choosers and we should be grateful for free software that works (if you pay for it, then it's Caveat Emptor, especially when a trial version is provided) You can make a still pic with multi-line titles (in a pic editor) and use that in VideoPad as a last resort. The forums are a self-help facility and NCH don't necessarily have to read what goes on here - if you want an answer from them you will have to email. Best wishes
  10. Open the clip in VideoPad, add clip to the timeline move to the point where the unwanted section starts split the clip into 2 at that point do the same at the end of the unwanted section, so you now have 3 clips : good,bad,good click on the middle clip and press delete Then Make your movie
  11. You don't (as far as I know) - it just converts clips as they are
  12. You just have to save the project - then you can reload it at a future date and change things, add new clips, and Create Movie all over again.
  13. iPod -> PC Is there nothing in the manual about that? Sorry, I don't own one so I can't really help DVD -> PC -> iPod A home movie on a DVD should be simply a .vob file on the disc when you navigate the disc on the PC, but Prism has a DVD option so you don't need to worry about that. The question remains what format do you need to convert to, and then copy onto the iPod? Google found me : "As for the new iPod nano, here it is straight from Apple: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; H.264 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats. Good luck
  14. I don't know what else to say apart from point you towards http://www.nchsoftware.com/prism/index.html where I presume you downloaded it from the first time. You'll just have to be patient for NCH to get back to you.
  15. Glad you got it sorted. You can't delete your comments or threads here, but you can edit a comment and replace it with a single line : "problem sorted out since - please remove this thread" ... and hope that a mod will do
