  1. I let the render finish yesterday and it turned out okay. The total time was about 4.5 hours. Had some time to play around with it this morning and do some more tests. I noticed yesterday that the second half of the video exported a LOT faster, and I realized that I had some positioning and scaling effects on the first half that I had forgotten about. So that part's my bad- I guess this particular video did have a little more going on than my usual videos. I do want to try to get to the bottom of this though- relatively simple position/scaling effects don't feel like they should cause Vid
  2. I recently upgraded from version 3.7 or so to version 5.20, and video export seems unusually slow to me. I noticed videopad.exe is using only 14% or so of my CPU, and x264enc7.exe is using 0-1%. Is there an option somewhere I need to check to enable multithreaded rendering? I've searched these forums a bit on the topic of CPU use, and everyone seems to have different answers. For reference, I've got an excellent 8-core PC with 16 GB of RAM and I'm currently exporting an 8 minute video. Resolution is 1920x1080, 60FPS. I have lossless export set to auto detect, and I'm using the H264 codec
  3. Oh, I get it now! The video effects window was indeed always covering my clip preview window when I had it open, so I didn't see any sort of preview like previous versions had. I also see now that you can click directly on the clip preview to manipulate the effects. I fiddled around with it and I also see how that empty space works as a plotter for the effects. Thank you both for your replies, that definitely cleared things up!
  4. I just upgraded from version 3.7 or so to the latest version, and I'm happy with it so far. The Video Effects window has changed a little though, and correct me if I'm wrong, but is there supposed to be a preview in this blank space on the right in the below image? No matter which video clip or image I select, if I go into Video Effects this area on the right is always blank. I'm 99% sure it's supposed to be a preview, like in previous versions. Is this a bug? Or is this space meant for something else?
  5. I replied to your PM. c_major, thank you for showing me the release notes. I searched for them myself, but couldn't find them. One of the places I looked and expected to find them was the VideoPad page on your website. It'd be nice if there was a dedicated changelog or release notes section there. There are some good new features in those versions, but the price still seems steep to me, especially since my version is only 9 months old. I'll try out the latest release and see if the bug I found is fixed, and then I'll follow up with you.
  6. First off let me just say: I purchased and have been happily using VideoPad 3.79. I really like the program, and I'm glad there's a relatively cheap, powerful alternative to the big-name programs out there. As I've used it, naturally I've found a few bugs. I tried submitting a bug report today, and I got this message: Great! There's a new version! So I (thankfully) backed up my old installation as the installer told me to, and installed the new version only to find that my license key is not compatible. Okay... I'll just upgrade... This is the upgrade price. WOW. I'm a program
