  1. Yeah, I personally would make a transparent PNG picture of a circle in GIMP and then put that on the overlay track.
  2. I'll start it off with getting some clarifications and pointing out one obvious possible cause. You're saying you have one, or more, video tracks with videos, pictures, titles, etc. with just the one audio track? If audio is always stopping at the same point, I'd wonder if you had split the audio track at that point when you were editing one of the video tracks and then the volume somehow got muted at that audio track split point.

    Stabilizer Issue

    Thanks, Dangerfreak. I'll give that a try.
  4. I finally learned Resolve enough to do a fade to a clip and it happened there, too. So it's not just VP. I took a 10 second clip of A New Hope, where the droids arrived on Tattooine, and faded it out. It's definitely the video information being left there because there was a very prominent outline of CP30 left on the screen. I went into my NVIDIA control panel and turned down the gamma setting until it disappeared. So I guess that solves it, but makes me wonder why that video information is even there to see.
  5. There's no particular project that has trouble. It can occur any time I try to do a do a fade, as with the tests I did earlier in this thread. Taking a random video, putting it in the timeline, fading. Sometimes there are artifacts left behind in the exported video, and sometimes there aren't.
  6. If VP confuses you, don't even think of trying Davinnci Resolve. It's got a 2600 page manual... that uses very technical language.
  7. c_major, I just wondered what the difference was when I first started using VP, when it was slower but stable and with never any issues, and after I upgraded, which runs faster but having various weird issues. With the Ryzen 7 processors being fairly new, I thought that might have been it.
  8. c_major, Thank you for checking. ETA: I just watched the video again and noticed that it does mess up in another fadeout. The beginning of the video starts with 3 title screen fading to black. Two of them are fine, but the first one leaves behind the after image. So it's just completely random. Just out of curiosity, has VP been documented as running correctly with Ryzen 7 processors?
  9. I did a project yesterday with a ton of fades and the only one with an issue was the final one, ending credits fading to black. And it didn't matter if I had a blank back clip after it or not. If no one else can see it but me, I won't worry about it. But here's something odd. This was a video I created for my wife, taking videos and pictures she had made of her grandfather's quilt presentation ceremony (for being a ww2 vet). I made one final minor change and then left it exporting, as it was time for bed. The project name and final video name are both Quilt Presentation. This morning, I copy Quilt Presentation.mp4 to the thumb drive to play for her on the HT system. Then just on a whim, I played the video still on my computer HD. I noticed right away it was wrong, as I had made a change in the wording on the first title screen. I scroll through it and see it is outdated. I loaded the project into VP and it's the same outdated version. I thought I was going to have to tell her it was going to be delayed again, as it appeared I was going to have to redo the work I had done the night before. Then I played the video that was on the thumb drive, and it was actually the final, finished version! I then saw a project file on the computer called Quilt Presentation - Copy. I opened it in VP and it was the final version. So, all is well as I just copied the video from the thumb drive back to the computer and then renamed the copy of the project back to Quilt Presentation. But can anyone explain that lunacy? It's either a Ryzan thing, or my computer is possessed.

    Stabilizer Issue

    Thanks borate and National for checking. I should begin each of my posts with "My video driver is always updated" 😛 DirectX is version 12, which is what Windows 10 should be. I checked the link just in case, but it says there's no direct download for updating, it's handled with the automatic Windows 10 updates. I'm going to temporarily break a NCH rule and install VP on my laptop and see what happens with that. If it works, I'll use it long enough to stabilize the 8 short videos I need and then uninstall it. I'm going to say again, I really think there's something going on with VP + Ryzen 7 processors = unexplained headaches.

    Stabilizer Issue

    It errors out on all the videos I've tried. But here's one such video: http://www.landowonder.com/dog.wmv
  12. Has anyone used the stabilizer function lately? I haven't used it in a while, but when I did it worked great. Now I'm getting this error halfway through the process. http://www.landowonder.com/error.png I've tried numerous videos of various lengths - from 3 seconds to 12 minutes, .mp4s, avi, mpeg, used normal mode, ultra mode... same error halfway through.
  13. Thanks, c_major. That could very well possibly be the issue. I'll try that when I get home.
  14. Thanks national and borate again for taking the time to do all the checks. There is something there, and it's a different pattern for each video. It seems to be video information left over from before the fade that gets turned into a ghostly distorted version of the original. Same with video clips that are separated by blank black clips, so it doesn't have to be a fadeout. Out of curiosity, I'm going to do a test where I start off with a black clip and see if there's anything there. Other than that, I don't know what else to do. I'm sure my monitor's set correctly, as there's no issue with anything else I play on it. And plus there are times that my exported videos don't do this, even at the same export settings.
  15. Okay, I can't see it in that screenshot above on the monitor here at work. However, I can see the effect in a video I posted a couple of weeks ago. I think this is when I first started noticing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcTc3Vj9xfc Put it full screen and pause around the 5 second mark after the fadeout. I'm almost certain this showed as a pure black fadeout in the preview window. It also does it at the fadeout at the end of the video. ETA: I can't see it on my work laptop, however. I think I'm going crazy.
