  1. Hello again, I have been using VP for a few weeks now and whilst I love the general design and features I am so fed up with its unreliability. I have finished my project several weeks ago apart from small amendments to get it perfect . Each night I go to make the small adjustment and everything keeps moving to new positions on time line. I emphasise they are small adjustments. Additionally I keep losing a whole evenings work. I have learned not to close before "saving as" because the program always comes up with "not responding" and a white screen. This evening I
  2. Thank you Nat, you have given me more homework, DCS
  3. Once again thank you Borate and Nat for supplying all that information. You guys go to a lot of trouble to help us novices and is most welcome and appreciated. I didn't know any of the above, so that answers my feelings toward the limited WMM, very well explained. Yes, I get the buffering whilst in preview too. I cleared cache and also noted the green line on video track. This line is only on the imported videos (from you-tube) - not above the still clips. You mention in VP that edits can be made when previewing. Not sure what you mean, sorry. Great to ha
  4. On this subject , I have just had a fright. When enlarging the preview to full screen the picture quality is just awful. I then checked a same picture against the one I have on WMMaker and Wmm is outstanding. Also checked the original of course - again perfect. So I did the export to PC file and what a relief, so much better. Not as good as on WMM though for some reason, but as I am still experimenting I have the choice ; WMM - but lacks channels and little can be done with audio, versus VP - which I like the features but a little disappointed at final result. Yes, someone

    Sub-title channel

    Nat'''' thankyou. Yes , just rechecked and you're correct. Funny it didn't seem like that at first - the text completely covered the clip. So this old guy has just spent adding lots of sub-titles and didn't need to complicate it. Thank you. The second point I had no idea there was this facility, that seems to overcome my previous moans about sub-title to clip being unattached. I am learning a bit every day. Thank you again, DCS.

    Sub-title channel

    Thank you for going to so much trouble. The "picture" you show - saying sub-title channel and +ADD, - I don't seem to have. However I have tried as you suggest using "Add Text" BUT (I now realise) remember to set the opacity to zero. This gives what I like - having the ability to slide the text . Although new to VP, I find it hard (yet) to see why one would use "sub-title". Surely you would be expecting to move clips regularly - which means losing the sub-title attachment. This could happen over dozens of instances with just adding or removing a few c
  7. I seem to be getting my sub-titles in a mess. Many clips end up more than one sub-title which of course can't be read. I looked on the help pages and it says I can add a sub-title channel. This seems perfect (similar to WMMaker) where one can simply slide the sub-titles to the correct clip. My question is how do I add this channel. I realise there is a move up/down facility, but this is very limited , when what I have commented above is so simple. Thank you all for any help
  8. Well, well. Yes I can now do this re-edit (as you call it). Previously I could only see an "edit" icon just under the previews and it only allowed one-line changes. I am so grateful to you all for helping this old guy, I must say it takes a lot of learning though. This is the second time I have asked for help and only used the program for a couple of weeks. Thank you and sorry to keep bothering you.
  9. I am trying to edit title - not the actual words, but to include a carriage return and have text on two lines. I can only see the "edit " icon which will only keep the text in one line. Thank you for helping, much appeciated
  10. Borate, you are a star. Last evening I was so peeved to be asked to purchase just before I had completed my video. I really thought I had downloaded a free version - it couldn't have been displayed vey clear. I am an 83 yr oldie so trying these things takes longer than for others. Additionally even more disgusted by the agent on the VP chat-line - so rude and impolite when I asked to explain the versions. However, I have done as you suggested and exported to an avi file and thankfully it runs . I am indebted to you for preserving hours of work , even if not quite f
  11. Hello everyone. I am new to videopad. I have been using the so called free version and today had a message to say pay to continue. I am so annoyed after many hours of work on a project, this was not said at downloading the " free for home use only version." Even more disgusted by the very unfriendly agent on the chat line when I asked to explain. Don't think I will be purchasing with this attitude let alone all the bugs that are discussed on this forum. Shame, quite liked it, but will look elsewhere.
