Anyone working with large video files from the Insta360 OneX camera should know that VideoPad seems to be one of the few editors that can actually handle the 5.7K files that the OneX produces. While it will not output 360 videos at the native 5.7K (5120 X 2880), it does output very reasonable quality 4096 X 2304 format videos that I find quite acceptable for viewing in a VR Headset. The problem I occasionally have with editing longer videos is with overall sound-sync and slight pauses in the final playback IF I save in VideoPad's Mp4 option. I am not sure why VideoPad has problems making longer 5 minute plus .mp4s stay in sync but I have tried a lot of different output options and the following workflow is what finally worked for me. I hope it helps other 360 videographers. MY WORKFLOW - First thing is of course to output the converted ONEX .insv & .insp video/picture files from the Insta360 Studio; then load the videos and photos into VideoPad -- (be sure to rescale the vertical aspect ratio of all footage to 1.13 using VideoPad's VideoFX Scale function to close any holes at the top and bottom) edit your video accordingly and then output the file 4096 X 2304 at a constant 30fps (or whatever fps you shot the footage at) to a default quality AVI file. these final video mixes play beautifully 'as is' in most VR players for headsets (ie:DEO VR or WhirliGig). If you do need to make .mp4s, use something like the free 'Any Video Converter' to create maximum quality mp4s for sharing and uploading to Youtube, works great.
Other editing software (ie: Vegas/Magix) incorporates proxy editing with no need to manually create folders and smaller files yourself. However, Videopad is so much nicer to work with, sad that it is lacking this basic feature given how cumbersome the process as detailed here is. It should probably have been written into the software years ago. As it is, I still use the process detailed here because VideoPad is one of the few editors that outputs super nice '4096 X 2304' 360 videos (better than 4K) and the difference is noticeable in VR Headsets! Beautiful results. As far as I know it is the only editor that currently outputs that kind of resolution for people using Insta360 OneX footage, although, maybe Adobe Premiere does but alas it is an ongoing subscription-based piece of software. -| --- If support is listening, this is a feature the program needs built in now more than ever!

Hi I am new to VideoPad but I am trying to use it to combine my Insta360 One X footage and am having the same problem. While I see the red and blue brackets for each clip I am combining, the Exported video is inconsistent in whether it will export the entire set of clips.I have tried selecting all the clips in the sequence and grouping them but that does not work either. Individually the red blue brackets are correctly bracketing the clips where I want. Is there an Overall bracketing I can do that addresses all of them to ensure I have the whole video?
