Missing / garbled video export in VideoPad Posted August 11, 2020 Hi borate, community, I've fixed all the audio gain mismatches, and tried to export again. I'd like to report that after quite a few long attempts (~20 or so) with actual export hiccups that were unrelated to version mismatch (missing frames / glitches / full blown VideoPad crashes) - I've managed to export via VideoPad 7.53 a full 1080p@30FPS AVI/H.264 (audio in MP3) rendering of the entire clip as a single sequence, with both video and audio, and (almost) all effects intact. Other than the gain corrections, I had to make one more tiny change: For some reason rendering the text proved hardest for this version, so I removed some overlapping transitions there, and after a few more attempts (every time clearing cache and restarting the software) eventually it worked without any errors! Unfortunately, in that version - less is free than in 8.67, so some effects were removed, such as audio compression, and as mentioned the export formats are limited as well. But AVI/H.264 is perfectly acceptable, and audio compression.. yeah well too bad but I can live without it . Regarding this: On 8/9/2020 at 9:42 PM, borate said: For a short time, view and download this. Thanks a LOT for exporting it for me again. It was really nice to see one more time how much you are willing to help. ======= Since my export succeeded, I haven't tried uninstalling 7.53 and installing 8.63. I don't know if I will do that now, but if I ever get to do that I will report back here. I do want to note however that 7.53, other than missing more features on the community version, is also noticeably more resource hungry and slower than 8.67. Playback via the software was incredibly jumpy to an unworkable level, even with the preview window set to its smallest possible size. Auto-rendering of a single clip after changing an effect or a transition takes much longer. So I guess.. if the developers manage to fix whatever it is that stops 8.67 from rendering properly - your software is definitely on the right track both qua performance, and qua allowed features in the community version . ======= If you'd like to take a look at the final rendered version, you can download the actual export here: https://tsemer.stackstorage.com/s/gCBckNSFZ6b4VQeL Or view it on YouTube: (slightly lower quality but not very noticeable) https://youtu.be/WGYYb3ffyes ======= Other than that, if you have any questions for me that may help you / the developers / other users better understand how to solve or fix things - please ask and I will do my best to help. Cheers, -Ohad PS: My father absolutely loved and was moved by the video. So if any VideoPad developers or product owners are reading this - know that you've helped make one awesome 70 year old guy extremely happy, and one geeky 39 year old guy as well. And borate, you too of course .
