  1. I tried that. Whenever I load the video files into the project, it still just goes up to 100 degrees C.
  2. Yeah well ... I'm not using a water-cooled PC. If I need something as advanced as a water-cooled PC just to run this app without melting my PC, then that seems like it should be included in the minimum system requirements to use this app. I don't even have a clue what you just said. I already told you: If the problem wasn't VP, how come VP is the only app that gets my CPU this hot?
  3. I've applied new thermal paste. According to CoreTemp, my CPU, when idle, only has a temperature of 47-52 degrees Celsius. Even when I'm playing a game (the most hardware-intensive thing I do), my CPU temperature rarely surpasses 55 degrees Celsius. For the record, I just played Ghostrunner - the most hardware intensive game I currently have - while monitoring my CPU temperature, and it only ever went up to 55 degrees once and it never went beyond that. But whenever I load some clips into Videopad so I can chop them up and make a new video out of it, that causes my CPU temperature to go up to an absolutely scorching 95-105 degrees Celsius! I don't even have to actually do anything with VideoPad. Just by having the clips be in the project, VideoPad is heating my CPU up to borderline-meltdown levels! VideoPad is literally the only app that does this. This is the one common denominator, and the difference between it and my second-most-intensive app (the game Ghostrunner) is absolutely massive. So how do I fix this? Because at this point, VideoPad isn't just slow as molasses, like I complained about in my last thread. At this point, it's literally dangerous for me to use it!
  4. For what it's worth, when I finally get around to exporting, that tends to go about as fast as it usually does. Exporting at 1280x720 @30fps typically exports at a 1-to-1 speed (that is to say ... it typically takes 1 second in real time to export 1 second of video with those settings). Then again, the exporting phase is already the phase that I'm least involved in. Once a video is exporting, there's literally nothing I can do except wait for it to finish. It's everything else - the adding of transitions and effects, the trimming out of unnecessary clips, the settings in the export wizard - those are the things that take forever to finally do the things I tell it to do.

  6. If it wasn't a videopad issue, I'd be having this problem with apps other than videopad
  7. Apparently, you didn't read the OP. I already tried a fresh copy of version 10.16 to no avail. Besides, why would a "fresh" copy of this app make a difference? I thought that was the primary advantage that digital media has over analog; the former doesn't deteriorate.
  8. You want to send me another PC?! I'll happily test it on that! Just make sure to provide return shipping if you want the PC back! Then how come I'm not having this problem (at least not at this scale) with any other app? My Videopad cache folder is already empty.
  9. AMD Ryzen 5 3600 32GB DDR4 RAM 119GB free space on 😄 So I'm good on hardware.
  10. I'm currently using version 7.03, but I did try the demo of version 10.16, and honestly, I think the newest version just made things worse. This app is slow as molasses. I used to be able to edit videos rather smoothly. When I was exporting all sequences, I could just hover my mouse over the "create" icon in the export wizard, and then just spam the left mouse button, because the export wizard for each sequence came up so quickly that literally left clicking as fast as possible was a viable option. The actual editing process was nice and smooth, and I never felt like there was any kind of significant delay between my input and what happened on screen. But then, things changed for some reason. The simplest task would often bog the app down. Now, about 75% of my time spent on this app isn't even actually editing, but just waiting for the app to actually do the things I tell it to do. I press Alt+V on a video clip. Then I wait ten seconds for the effects menu to pop up. I press CTRL+SHIFT+V to bring the video clip down to the timeline. About five seconds later, the clip is actually in the timeline. I considered the possibility that my Windows 10 might have received some updates that version 7.03 was ill-equipped to handle, and that might be what was causing the slowdown. So on a hunch, I decided to try the demo for version 10.16. My performance went from slow to practically nonexistent. If my performance with v7.03 was a snail's pace, my performance with v10.16 is a tectonic plate! Now, instead of 5-10 seconds in between input and response, it's about 2-3 minutes! Why is this app performing like complete trash?!
  11. If I'm exporting a 4:3 aspect ratio into a 16:9 aspect ratio, it will usually just show a pair of 2:9 black columns on either side, like this: https://i.postimg.cc/W4KhPK94/1.png The red zone is the area where the actual video shows up. However, sometimes I want to just export in 4:3. So ideally, it should look like this: https://i.postimg.cc/qR3gBLYx/2.png Sometimes, Videopad exports like that. But sometimes, for no discernable reason, it will (A) add the 2:9 black columns onto the sides, (B) export the subsequent 16:9 aspect ratio video in a 4:3 aspect ratio in letterbox format! So the resulting export looks like this: https://i.postimg.cc/ZnznWNzt/3.png Again, the red section is the section where the actual video can be found. Now, if I were taking a video clip that was already 16:9 to begin with, and I wanted to export that clip in 4:3, then it should probably be in letterbox format, like so: https://i.postimg.cc/CKZxJ7Fp/3.png That at least makes sense. However, sometimes, even that's not what I'm trying to do. Sometimes, I really am just trying to crop out the two sides of the video. How do I get VideoPad to consistently export in just 4:3 with no black area on any of the four sides?
  12. I just started an entirely new project with new files, and this was after I updated the Nvidia drivers. I'm having the same problem as before. I shouldn't have to upgrade Video Pad itself, because i wasn't having this problem until very recently. I just want to get my performance back to the way it was before. So do you have any other ideas that don't involve upgrading?
  13. I've already long since adopted the practice of doing that. I break the entire project into sequences. Then I use the "export all sequences" feature to export all of them before dropping each of those sequences into one clip. So as you may have guessed, that isn't helping right now.
  14. I don't know what that means. The final version of the video is estimated to be in the ballpark of 40 minutes. The highest resolution source file is a 1920x1080, 60fps video in MP4 format. Oh, I already tried clearing the cache. it said there were no cache files to clear. I already have it set up to warn me if it drops below 1,000MB. I haven't gotten such a message yet. No, my current version is the one I use because it was the last one to come out before my 6-month period was over. The first version I had under this license key was 6.32.
