  1. I appreciate the detailed and very helpful instructions. I will be sure to follow your instructions, to the letter, for my next stabilization. After I have stabilized it, I will send my next video to you for testing. Thanks as always.
  2. This should be one original, PRE-stabilized file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ID_6sfqCls7tmJRmn6dRGh3v7mNePQXj/view?usp=sharing Thank you very much for the final output. I downloaded it and it looks great.
  3. Thanks very much for helping me out with this project. I hope we can get to the bottom of the problem. I am using VP Professional Version 8.32. First, it occurred to me that maybe my video camera is producing files that are confusing VP. I am using a Nikon COOLPIX P100 Ver. 10 camera with Full HD, 10.3 Megapixels, 240 fps. It is not a new camera; I bought it in a pawn shop. So, I am concerned that perhaps the age of the camera is the reason that it seems to be producing non-standard files. I have not changed any of the factory settings for the camera. I recorded the audio for this project using Audacity and saved the audio project as an mp3 file. Regarding your question as to how I stabilized the raw video footage, I choose the first of the two videos I had added using the Add Files feature, and right clicked on the first video. I scrolled down to Stabilize Video – Deshaker Options – Medium Quality – Advanced - Highlighted Pass 1 & 2 and did not change the factory settings – and then clicked on Pass 2 – Edge Compensation – Adaptive+fixed (no borders) – and clicked OK. I performed the same exact task on the second video. I unlinked the original audio from both videos, and then using the Add Files feature, uploaded my Audacity mp3 file to the Audio Section. I tried adding a Video transition between the end of the first video and the beginning of the second video. I may not understand how the VP video transitions work or how to properly utilize them, but it appeared that the transition only occurred up until the end of the first video and immediately stopped when the second video began. This is unlike Windows Movie Maker that has the transition beginning at the end of one video, and ending after the beginning of the second video. Therefore, I did attempt to use VP's video transitions, but I do not remember if I used them or deleted them. Thanks. It's great to know that this forum is here to support the customers. Your help is much appreciated.
  4. This is the 2nd time that I have created a video using VP. The first time I was not able to export the file. I attempted to export my video as a mp4. For 24 hours I watched as the "sound clips processing ... please wait" message repeated over and over. Finally, I decided that something must be wrong and that I should contact the forum. I have Version 8.32 Professional. I'm running Windows 10, Version 1909 (installed 3/27/2020), 8 GB RAM, 64-bit operating system, on an All-In-One HP Desktop 20-c005la. A very helpful and knowledgeable person in this forum helped me out. I was asked to share my project with the forum, which I was able to do. This person very kindly fixed whatever was wrong with my file and sent it back to me. However, no explanation was given regarding what I had done wrong the first time, or how to prevent it from reoccurring. Now, I’ve just completed my 2nd video and attempted to export it, and I received the same sound processing message that never stops. Please would someone very kindly take a look at my files – I hope I have uploaded them correctly – and fix them? I have links to two versions of the same project because I am not sure which is the most recent. Also, I would be most grateful if someone might tell me what I am doing wrong to cause this endless "sound clips processing" message that I receive when exporting? I don’t want to continually bother the group with the same problem, and if I know what I am doing incorrectly, I will follow the instructions correctly in the future. Many thanks. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1tvppK_HbQdpXoeMm9ZJxK8iiQZTXHnby?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Lk_8a3sxwhkrWka3dUMS1du9sZNFFg9-?usp=sharing
  5. Thanks for writing. I can only say that I'm learning as I'm going. I thought mp3 was the industry standard. I put the reproduction protection on because I considered these to be "hard copy" backups of my music, and also some of them were gifts to various people and I didn't want to discover that these individuals for whatever reason used my original music for their own purposes. I am using a PC. Many of these were made on computers I had 10 years ago. I'm currently running Windows 10 on a HP 64-bit, 8 RAM, 1.80 GHz processor. Is NCH Switch Software a different program than WavePad, as I already have purchase WavePad. The only method I have tried to extract the files is to view the files and if they are not protected, copy them onto my hard drive. The files that were produced when I used the "Load Tracks from CD" tool is not producing files that I can play. The properties state that they are mp3 files, but none of my programs seem to be able to play them.
  6. Many thanks for all your help. The video is working great. I sincerely appreciate your help.
  7. I have been attempting to recover music I had composed between the years of 2010 - 2016 and recording onto various CDs. However, when you use the "Load Tracks from CD" tool, it gives all the compositions on the CD strange names of compositions by classical composers. In other words, the music on the CD is being ripped, but each composition is being named incorrectly. For example, all the compositions now have classical music titles, some are in German, others are titled with such names as: Fuga, Adagio, Fantasia, etc. Please, does anyone know why this is happening? When I originally recorded the music, I recorded all the compositions as mp3s. I had connected my keyboard directly to my desktop computer, and then had the computer burn the CD. Often I used the reproduction protection feature on my computer program, and so now when I insert the CD into my present computer, I only receive a list of .cda files, which of course, I cannot rip directly. I have been using WavePad's "Load Tracks from CD" tool to bypass the .cda protection. Please tell me if I am attempting to rip the files from these CDs correctly. All the music is my original music. Almost all the music is in mono because at the time I was making these recordings I did not have an analog to digital converter. Thank you very much for your time and attention in this regard.
  8. Thank you so very much. The problem seems to be what you wrote about in your first paragraph above. You mentioned that there is an "audio only 'anima talk with waltz' file with no corresponding video". However, in fact, there is, or at least there was, a corresponding video of about 26 minutes! I think I mentioned to you that this movie was shot as 2 videos. The edited version of the first video now looks fine, but the second video is now completely missing. I still have the original footage I shot with my video camera. The second video was one continuous shot I had made of myself walking through a park. Because the video was shaky, I ran it twice through the Stabilize Video feature of VP. This stabilized video file is completely missing from the files you sent me. When I ran the finished edited version of my movie here at home, before attempting to export the finished movie, the stabilized video always appeared and ran. You sent me DSCN6698.MOV which in reality was only a bit of video I removed from the first video. How could this approximately 26-minute stabilized video just have disappeared? It seems that you received everything except this stabilized video in the folder I shared with you. Does VP send stabilized videos to some other folder? Do stabilized videos also have a .MOV extension? I can't seem to find this stabilized video anywhere, and I ran it through the stabilizer twice, because after the first stabilization, there was a black border that I removed in the second run of the stabilization. I'm at a loss to explain this or to know what to do. It took many hours for the Stabilize Video feature to completely stabilize the video. I wouldn't want to have to do that again. Thank you for any suggestions you might have in this regard. I appreciate your time and help in this regard.

  10. Thanks for the updated info. I truly wish I could tell you about the "three sequences", but I saw that phrase specifically displayed somewhere on the VideoPad program. I have never heard of that term "sequences" before today, and so I definitely saw it displayed somewhere, but exactly where, it is unfortunate, but I do not remember. Definitely, the warning I received stating that the file I was attempting to cut is being used by "one of more clips on your sequence" may have led me to believe that was the correct terminology. Specifically, I originally shot two videos. Using VP, I edited the first video, snipping out the middle section, thereby creating two sections. I left the audio as is. The second video that I shot, I didn't mess around with, except for snipping a bit off at the end. However, I unlinked the video from the audio, deleted the audio, and added a brand-new audio that I had recorded on Audacity. Then I arrange them so that they were in a sequence of three parts. Here is a link that I hope, is the video that I am sharing with you. I was not able to removing the original files from the bin, because VP prompted me that they are in use. Both video files and the one audio file all have green check marks. So, I didn't want to mess around with them. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xDAYPSaryAXDRiyhSsWhzArk4JQUkW9Y/view?usp=sharing Again, I want to say I truly appreciate your help. Thanks.
  11. Thanks to everyone for all your help! I proceeded to the link given above in order to share my project. At Step #1 I read: 1. Save your project. Then remove any files from the bins that are not being used in the project (no green check marks), to lighten the load. When I attempted to cut one of the two files visible in the Video Files Bin, I received the message: The clip: April 14 Please Allow.MOV is currently being used by one or more clips on your sequence, which must be deleted to proceed with this Cut operation. Would you like to do this now? I assume that the instruction "remove any files from the bins that are not being used in the project (no green check marks), to light the load" means to cut the clips, or am I mistaken? Also, I have repeatedly SAVED PROJECT AS throughout my editing process. This morning I created the file: Please Allow Project _ Finished _ Backup April 22 5_29AM CDT.vpg This file is 8.62 KB. However, as I am a YouTube content creator and I have many videos, I created a special folder: C:\Users\Chris\Dropbox\The New Place Inside\Ep. 8 Please Allow to store all my audio and video files related to this project. This is my 2nd VideoPad Professional Video and I had no problem with the first video I made using the VideoPad editor. Also, for that project, I created a special folder. I had no problem whatsoever exporting the finished product. However, with this video, I have experimented with creating three sequences of video and audio, as well as unlinking and deleting the audio from the 3rd sequence and adding a new audio file in its place that I created using Audacity (which I saved as a mp3 file and imported into VideoPad using the Add Files while I had the Sound Files Bin open). Please instruct me how to correctly "remove any files from the bins", since it is currently being used by one or more clips in my sequence and if there is anything else I should know before attempting to share my project. Thanks for your time and attention in this regard.
  12. I am having the same problem that was reported back on August 16, 2018, posted by stebbinsd. At that time, the poster wrote, I'm moving to export my sequences. However, it just says "sound clips processing ... please wait." The problem is that all my sound clips are working perfectly. Also, VideoPad never actually finishes processing the clips. I can come back an hour later and it will still say "sound clips processing ... please wait." Less than a month ago, I bought, downloaded and installed VideoPad Professional. The software registration codes were installed on March 26, 2020 6:30 PM. I have been working on a video now for two weeks and yesterday morning I attempted to export my video as a mp4. For the last 24 hours I have watched as the "sound clips processing ... please wait" message repeats over and over. I have Version 8.20 Professional. I'm running Windows 10, Version 1909 (installed 3/27/2020), 8 GB RAM, 64-bit operating system, on an All-In-One HP Desktop 20-c005la. Please help. I have two-weeks of work displayed on my VideoPad screen. I don't want to lose my work. If I am asked to reload the program or update my version, can I do so without losing all the hundreds of hours I have already put into this project? If so, please explain how to protect my work. Thanks.
