  1. I have latest updates of win 10 , 6 month old i5 Laptop. enough memory and SSD space with a Pioneer Bluray burner. .. . . but , Select Burner doesn't show any burner . At this point, I cannot use "Express Burn"! Any Ideas how to solve this problem? MFG St B
  2. Thanks again borate for your effort and response. I think I'm going to give up on this one. I don't want to waste your time any further. "Apparently the successful stabilized file is included in your link above" - Yes, but with sound unprocessed or (still processing) I tried again, can't find any sign of progress indication anywhere?? (I must say a shortcoming I found in some other processes as well) My hardware: (Maybe the software is hardware sensitive) Asus VivoBook Intel i5-8265U @ 1.60Ghz (8th Gen) Windows 10, 64-bit (update = current) Total SSD storage =
  3. Hi borate, Thank you for your response and I apologize for my delayed response. (In between everything else I am running around trying to keep my wife's Covid locked down dance studio alive) 1) I have installed the latest version of VP and the stabilizer (video and sound) did work perfectly. But then requested payment which, as said before, is not an option for me. So I restored to previous status, i.e. VP 8.23 2) Direct-X is up to date - ver 12. So is my Intel video drivers. 3) Herewith the Dropbox link (included is the original video file : "Original - VID_20200518_103
  4. Thank you for responding. I have tried a short clip as you suggested with the NTSC setting. It worked and the sound is there but . . . the preview window freezes halfway in. Tried a few times but no improvement. It does however works fine when viewing the exported video. Then tried a longer video, (the one that started this post), 7 1/2 minutes, but . . . no success. Keeps on telling that sound will be available after processing. (how many hours?) Nothing personal here, (your assistance is always appreciated), but having to pay NCH to repair a fundamental function they messed up,
  5. I have read thru this thread but unless I am missing something, I'm not getting the answer. (VP 8.23 , Win 10 , i5 - 8th Gen) I have: new project > single clip > run stabilize (takes very long) but gets done. Then If I want to play the clip, it says audio is still being processed. . . . . and still after hours when I give up. I have tried very short clip, no success with audio processing. What am I doing wrong? St B.
  6. (face slap!) Sorry, I looked at it about 20 times, oi! Thank you.
  7. Is this new in 8.35? I could not find it in 8.32, unless I am looking in the wrong place?? St B
  8. No choice if the transition is between the ends of the same split clip Default is an overlap of the moving video.You cannot have a frozen image crossfade.. The choice is given if the ends are from different clips even if they have been trimmed. i.e. The default is what is set in Options. "In that scenario, logical for sure. Maintains clean sync." Yep! That's the answer! I've been rushing thru so many videos that I didn't notice the "same split clip" situation. And yes, "logical for sure" ! Makes total sense, I am cutting out "stuff" (sometimes very short), and overlapping wil
  9. Thanks for the response. . . . . . mmm . . . not so sure. I have been editing videos like crazy the past two weeks, close to no 50 now (30min videos for online tuition), and have done numerous cuts on these videos to get rid of some disturbance or coughing or something, then use a "cross fade" to tidy up the transition, and every single time I got ask the question . When there is a short clip involved, it will give an additional warning saying that the clip is to short and that the transition time must be shorter, when I choose overlap. Now, I cannot get VP to ask me the question in any c
  10. My option to choose my transition method suddenly disappeared today. VP no longer asks me "... freeze.. or .... move clips". My settings under: Options->Editing-> Video clip transition: Generate freeze frames/ move clips to overlap/ Ask me . . . . is still set to "Ask me". Anybody that can solve the mystery ? St B.
  11. Ok, I've found that a new sound track cannot be linked, only grouped ???? St B
  12. Thanks borate, Got it to work! Very nice! Just one last question on the subject, How does one link the new sound track/s to the rest of the sequence. Every time I add a new header at start, every thing shifts up except the new sound track. Also, when I add crossfade on the video where the clips move forward for slight overlap, the new soundtrack stays put! St B
  13. Thanks for responding. I need to monitor track 1 for sync purposes, but I don't want it recorded on the new track, only the narration. I will at the end get rid of the original track 1. ie new track 2 (music) and track 3 (narration) must replace track 1. Is this possible? St B
  14. I am trying to add a new audio track (narration) to an existing video with a bad sound track. Is there a way of monitoring the original audio track on headphones so that I can here where to add the new narration. ie. Audio track 1 is the original sound track.(voice volume is way to low and music is quality was mic recorded). Audio track 2 is actual music and audio track 3 is the new narration. The aim here is to redo the audio with the new music and narration properly balanced to replace the original audio. anybody? St B
  15. Did that, tested all the possible file handlers. - no difference. Nothing works. Also tested some setting on the Windows explorer settings. Also, won't help much if it is working on my machine because I'm not the one this is about. I'm distributing these clips to our students and there is a variety of devices out there! It seems there is a lack of standardization in file thumbnail display department. The video file itself must "push" a thumbnail image or embedded! Thanks anyway for your interest and suggestions. (and just if you are wondering, I'm testing over three different devic
  16. Thanks again borate, but somehow I get the impression that if someone like you don't know, nobody will!
  17. Thanks borate for your response! I have looked at the article but unfortunately as is often the case, steps are missing or no longer exist in the app. Also the frustration of undated internet articles. (maybe very old and refers to back versions?) However, is there no way of forcing the thumbnail to show in windows explorer during video preparation and export in VideoPad? (The thumbnails inside Videopad are no problem, that's not the issue.) I am producing tones of short videos to assist a dance studio running virtual studio dance lessons and most videos shows the first frame of t
  18. Any new advice? I still can't force a preferred frame to be the thumbnail in picture view mode in Win 10 windows explorer or elsewhere! I get totally random results after numerous tests and ways of exporting a video. It's driving me nuts and it looks very unprofessional. There must be a way! people on you tube gets it right. Why can't it be elsewhere as well? Anybody ?
  19. Hi Nationalsolo, Thank you for the response. I've sorted the problem, by as you and borate suggested, at 60fps constant. Problem is that the flickering at 30fps just doesn't look good, so I'll try and stay away from 30. Only problem is then that persons with apple products seem to have problems viewing at 60fps !!?? (a still outstanding question: What is the best format to send to apple product users, frame rate and resolution?) I am bit confused by your statement "There was no obvious flicker of the fades noted in the VP preview" , because the flickering there is what started me
  20. My equipment (ASUS Vivobook) is about six months old (8th gen i5) with win 10 up to date as well as all NCH software at latest versions. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/01cw7bx285r5pjj/AACiHSjJKKnRee3mrpn0E06ea?dl=0
  21. I have started using VP about a month ago to assist someone in this virus pandemic. This is my first videos and VP was updated to version 8.23 on April 1, 2020. I have updates as above and now it wants met to pay again!!?? (...and caused me a lot of work during a restore process) I feel that smooth fading in and out is a very basic transition since day one of video editors and should work properly. Can you please help? The http://nch.invisionzone.com/topic/23659-tips-for-getting-help-on-this-forum/ is a "closed" topic. ????
  22. I am struggling with a flickering fade-in or cross-fade transition, regardless of frame speed or resolution, it stays the same. It looks as if the steps (resolution) during fade-in are very coarse. It should by smooth but instead flickers along until full image. Any assistance to solve this problem please.
