  1. Hi Borate Sorry to disappoint but the exact same problems exist with some other VOB files that I started working on in 7.50. Cutting them up editing adding titles and transitions messes up the linked audio and video tracks I will experiment a bit more and report back.
  2. Thanks Borate interesting re the online converter. Yes a moot point indeed, hopefully shortly😀
  3. Thank you Borate for your concise explanation. I originally converted the problem VOB in Prism with H264 left as the deafult and with AAC greyed out but showing as the Default. This then is the resultant MP4 file that I had the later problems with even though the conversion was with Prism as above. The Grouping explanation is as I understood it to be so that is good BUT the Grouping was failing with this same converted VOB file as a MP4? So this may mean that Prism also has a problem handling VOB files?
  4. So Borate that means that the current 7.39 version (and some earlier versions) of VideoPad as a video editor cannot be relied upon to process ALL MP4s as it seems to be that the original origin of the file determines whether VideoPad will handle it properly or not? Therefore someone could have a stack of MP4s and be frustrated as I have been by this whole out of sync thing and not know or realise that the problem relates to the actual origin source of their MP4s which they may have never known anything about, nor are able to confirm? So I just want to make that point crystal clear so that others who experience this same problem out of sync with their MP4s and or VOBs will have an answer of sorts or at least an explanation documented here so that they hopefully do not end up wasting as much time as I have with this whole process. Also could you just advise that selecting "Group Selected Files" is designed to theoretically lock the audio and the video together immutably thus retaining their exact relationship to each other even through additional editing and transformation additions? I eagerly await the next version so that I can get on with processing another 100 or so VOBs that I have here.
  5. Borate Yes just tried an original MP4 file and there is no sync problem introduced with Transitions which seems to show that the sync problem is related to the VOB origin as you have suggested. I guess I will have to wait for the new rectified version or use one of the older versions as previously discussed.
  6. Ok whilst I await a new improved version to fix the bug with the .VOB files out of sync problem I thought I would try a different approach. I took a VOB file and converted it to MP4 in Prism then imported it to VideoPad successfully. All was fine and the audio was in sync with the video (unlike with the original in sync VOB version which goes out of sync when imported direct to VP) but the original quality of the audio needed cleaning up beyond what VideoPad was capable of doing so I chose to edit the audio file direct in WavePad from VideoPad. This I completed successfully and then closed WavePad which updated the audio file in VideoPad. The result was the audio was still in sync with video so I selected all and chose "Group Selected Files" to lock in the synchronization. Next I added in a Title at the start on the sequence which was added in at the default 3 seconds, still in sync, then I edited the Title and increased the duration from 3 seconds to 6 seconds BUT this then pushed the video sequence 3 seconds to the right but left the audio track unmoved introducing a 3 second out of sync problem. Adding in a Transition only added to the problem. I have tried a number of different permutations of this approach but out of sync is the result. Interestingly if I adjust the duration of the Title clip from 3 to 6 seconds BEFORE inserting it on the sequence at the start the sync remains correct BUT then if I add in a Transition the sync is thrown out by the duration of the Transition despite being Grouped.I have also tried both Grouping and Ungrouping when adding a Transition in but the problem still exists. So how is this possible when I chose Group Selected Files to lock them to each other?? Isn't this feature supposed to lock the tracks together retaining their relationship and sync to each other or am I missing something here????
  7. Borate A couple of things here. Firstly I thought you should know that your above link to 7.11 is blocked and flagged by Malwarebytes on my laptop? Secondly I have just been reading back through a thread re 7.11 back in June which both you and Nat had input into. Seems that there may be potential problems with that version albeit maybe of a different nature. So I think that I have already got enough problems to deal with and at least I now understand these problems although I can't really use VideoPad to produce an in sync MP4 in one pass. I think for the time being I will continue with the somewhat tedious and finicky task of re importing the out of sync MP4s that I have already produced, (about 30) and trying to re sync them correctly whilst I wait for the next corrected version of VideoPad to be released. Hopefully this will solve these problems Thank you Wayne
  8. Thank you Borate I will download 7.11 and report back. Wayne
  9. Hmmmm a quick try loading that same VOB file into the new 7.39 gives the exact same result. Not synced, I guess this means that even the new version has the same bug? Big shame considering this was the main reason I bought this for! I guess I will have to try your suggestion Borate using 7.02 but I note that it seems to be released way back in February so not sure what else it might be missing? Not sure about the licence for the Professional version of 7.02 until I try. Regards Wayne
  10. Thank you to both of you guys, you have both been very helpful with this. As a novice user of VideoPad when a problem like this arises the user, me in this case spends countless hours that run into days trying to figure out what the actual problem is. All the time doubting ones self and thinking that I must be doing something wrong and that I just can't see what it is that I am doing wrong. But after testing the VOBs in the other programs I became convinced that it was not something that I was doing or not doing but a problem or a bug in the VideoPad program which is very disappointing to say the least due to the time I have wasted. I have downloaded 7.39 and will experiment with this version and report back here in due course. Have you reported this bug to NCH or should I do that and if so how do I do that please? Once again I am grateful to both of you guys/girls for your assistance. Regards Wayne
  11. No one denies what you are seeing, which is likely due to the VHS--->DVD transfer. Borate If this really was the case then how is is that ALL other video playback software apps have played the VOB correctly in sync EXCEPT VideoPad Professional. I am a novice at all this so please explain to me how that is even plausible and or possible that the VOB is at fault when the 'problem' is only ever a 'problem' when it is opened in VideoPad Professional??????? This is the part that I struggle to understand. I have sent you some sample files for your perusal. Thank you
  12. Guys I have the Video_TS files on the dvd disc and the VOB files within. So I go to back to my earlier question how do I cut a small section out of a VOB to just send you that without including the entire original VOB? Then I will send the resultant out of sync mp4 for comparison as well. But I must reiterate that these in question VOB files play back perfectly in sync in every program that I try them in EXCEPT VideoPad Professional. I acknowledge that I can see the actual problem playing out in front of me for many days now and that you cannot at the moment. Therefore I understand your reluctance to accept that what I am saying is actually correct. Whilst we are trying to sort this out I have reloaded a few of the 40 or so short MP4 videos that I have produced then Unlinked them and manually re synced them, then Grouped all the clips and Re Exported them to MP4 and the results are that they are then in sync. But obviously this is tedious and doubles the time required to end up with an in sync video.
  13. Borate Ok the problem persists so how do I cut a small section out of a VOB to just send you that without including the entire original VOB? It is only a few seconds but illustrates the problem when compared to the associated MP4 sample that I have cut out. Thank you
  14. Nat This VOB clip played perfectly in synch from end to end. Thank you for going to all of that effort to assist with this problem. It is much appreciated. I will try some other VOB files and report back. I do not have the same sync problems with MP4s just VOBs so it seems. If it occurs with the next set of VOBs I will try and work out how to upload both the source VOB file and the resultant MP4 file as per Borate's request above.
  15. Hi Nat Using vp 7.30 I can't reproduce your synch error. Using a 30 second clip specifically shot for synching problems (a tapping pencil) a 1 minute mp4 export stayed exactly in synch Thanks for trying that. Was this a .VOB file to start with? This seems to be the problem file type?
