  1. Tough to visualize what's going on, but it obviously isn't right. What version of Videopad is being used? As you describe it, the single-track timeline should look something like this. Video - title text - video - credit text. Is that what you see? Take a few minutes to upload your project so someone can take a look. This is easy and can be private. Just follow these four steps... 1. With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left. Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER. Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER. 2. Locate the saved, numbered folder
  2. Be sure that your video drivers and Direct-X are up to date. https://www.nch.com.au/kb/10265.html v8.84 here. Pop up appears on mouseover... Record_2020_10_01_10_18_42_356.mp4https://www.nch.com.au/kb/10265.htm
  3. Note the second Value # in the pop up when mousing over a keyframe. File suggestions by clicking the chevron at the top-right of the VP window.

    Intel I7 late generation or comparable. NVidia 1060 or above. In the future expect VP to better utilize GPU for effects. A knowledgeable builder can be especially helpful in choosing appropriate, quality hardware for your 'sweet spot.' No need to break the bank. Hardware recommendations for the more complex and costly NLEs you mention apply to VP and editing in general.
  5. And of course. Save Project File AS routinely, giving it a unique # or name, so as not to overwrite prior saves. Using Save Project Files (no AS) will overwrite. Then clicking the VPJ will restore a project to the state it was in when saved.😄.

    There's no one answer, but as video editing is resource intensive a game-class PC is often recommended. Check this out and search the WEB for similar articles. Consider a custom build, by a qualified high-end shop. You may see a speed improvement immediately. And when Videopad 64-bit arrives (no target date), handling of complex projects, huge files and ultra-high resolutions will be enhanced, to take even better advantage of your new hardware.
  7. Some insights... https://www.nch.com.au/kb/10231.html https://nch.invisionzone.com/topic/24123-feature-request-anamorphic-mpeg-720x576-widescreen-export/ You can test drive VP on a trial basis. https://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/vpsetup.exe
  8. Your issue is fully understood. Requesting your files to see if stabilization fails here is an effort to sleuth the cause. Please understand that folks in this forum, with rare exception, do not work or speak for NCH. To request a debug version the official support channel may be your best bet... https://tinyurl.com/r89tpcw If you received a debug version in the past, contact the party who supplied it.
  9. It's not so much quality control as it may be 32-bit app limitation. A 64-bit version (no timeline) will considerably improve large file/resolution handling. Most woes you have had seem related to unfamiliarity with VP. Missing effects/clips hint at a memory issue, though that's rare for a 26:40 minute, 1080 project. Folks here will check it if you take the time to upload and share per the above four-step process. As suggested earlier, in lieu of H265, stick with H264 all the way, or try the MPEG4 compressor - perhaps under the AVI format. Breaking a project into several part
  10. Proxy editing, using low-res files in place of the originals, will make caching and rendering go much more smoothly than with the large original files. However, there could be program memory issues upon export. Someone here will suggest the best way to proceed if you take the time to upload and share the project, as outlined above. Breaking the project into shorter segments, exporting each and later merging those for final export is worth a try. In the end it may turn out that your experiment with reducing video file size by lower level conversion, keeping 1080p at 30 fps but at mu
  11. No such. Make a suggestion by clicking the chevron at the top-right of the Videopad window.
  12. Save Project File AS routinely, giving it a unique # or name, so as not to overwrite prior saves. Using Save Project Files (no AS) will overwrite. Then you can restore a project to the state it was in when saved. Just double-click the VPJ file (which isn't playable). You say you "launched it." Do you mean that it took a long time to export? Or did it take a long time for a saved project to be reloaded into VP? What is the length of the project and what is the resolution of the majority of the source files?
  13. Try an H264 AVI export. Try a MPEG4 AVI export. Upload and share the project. What is the resolution of the bulk of the source files?
  14. Try this... Select the clips, right-click on one and GROUP SELECTED CLIPS.
  15. The only way to track down a true issue is to see the project, as instructed in the reply to your "Picture Missing After Export" thread. If it turns out to be a bug, it will be quickly addressed.
