  1. When I change the aspect ratio the image is just stretched to the limits of the chosen ratio. Here is the file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1o5znnhQyIAF0Rw44DWUkVq0kFEciIaRe/view?usp=sharing
  2. v8.45 I am importing a still image (png) and regardless of the actual size of the image (created in a separate drawing program) Video Pad expands the image to fill the screen. This means each time I have to add a scale effect to shrink it back down to the original size, which seems unnecessary. Is there a way for VideoPad to display the actual size of the image?
  3. With no project opened if I go to Tools->Options->Disk and press "Clear Unused Cache Files" the sound cache is not cleared, even though the main cache is emptied. v8.45
  4. v8.45 I am starting a new project and so I originally cleared the cache as mentioned in other threads: tools->options->disk and click "Clear Unused Cache Files". I notice that this clears the immediate folder in C:\Users\myNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\VideoPadCache But within this folder there is another called "VideoPadSoundCache" which doesn't get emptied and seems to contain about a GB of related audio information. Shouldn't this sound cache also be cleared?
  5. Yes, I was getting an autosave file created. I have reverted to 8.45, which works fine, but the crashes were having on 8.91.
  6. I was having similar issues where VP would always crash when closing, though it would still save. Admittedly, this was when I had some very large video files being used for the project and my computer's resources were being pushed to their maximum. I would try re-installing your VP and see if this helps. It helped me.
  7. So to follow up. Originally the problem was solved by changing the jpg files to png files. This worked so the images would properly export. After working in the project for a day or so, suddenly some (not all) of the png images stopped exporting. It seems v 8.91 is inconsistent with its handling of exporting some objects. If Borate can verify this using the back up I messaged him with, that would at least confirm it isn't just a problem with my computer. In the meantime, I reverted to v 8.45 and voila! Everything is exporting properly now.
  8. I found three solutions: 1. delete the blank object on the underlying track 2. delete the video (30fps) beneath the blank object and keep the blank object 3. delete the other video track with 28.97 fps So the problem could be: a) the combination of the blank object and the underlying video, or b) having two video tracks of different fps I will message you the project privately, shortly.
  9. I am using 8.91 and having the issue of jpg images not showing in the exported video. I have several jpg pics, which have been used more than once across multiple tracks. Their original duration was 3s, but in the various tracks they have been extended, and all appear correctly in the sequence preview for the correct lengths. But in the exported videos they don't appear at all. As a side note, in the preview the images all have grey borders appearing around them, even though there is no such border in the original pic. *EDIT - I created an empty file with just a jpg on top of a blank
  10. My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but I am trying to find the easiest way to move multiple sequential cuts along a single, and over multiple tracks. I have a long single video which has been cut up, all on one track. Now I need to insert some new cuts in the middle, and need to push all the cuts to the right. I expected I would insert some "empty" cut in the middle, and then drop in the new one. I have been holding ctrl and selecting the cuts to move, but when I move them they never drop where I let them go, and sometimes they don't move at all. I'm using v 8.91.
  11. Hello (using v 8.91) I have inserted a simple text overlay of text. When trying to modify it after it is created I double click on it and the text editor appears as expected. Here I can change several things, some which work and some which don't: Works: 1. outline 2. shadow 3. all the align features (left, center etc...) Doesn't Work: 1. Font 2. Bold 3. Italics 4. Underline For the features which do work, when I change them the affects immediately appear in the clip preview. For the features which don't work, after making a change it simply reverts to t
  12. Thanks for this! A few questions: 1. For step 1, you added keyframes to animate the zooming into the centre? 2. Near the end when you say "once through the timewarp (zoom)...: do you mean once the zoom effect has stopped zooming in further and so we would be looking at a more or less still image? 2. Where did you get that star field image? It looks awesome. 3. Are there copyright issues if using the NCH audio clips?
  13. Got it. Thanks. It would be nice of it included the % symbol for clarity. I.e., instead of "Horizontal:" add "Horizontal (%):
  14. I understand how a position effect should work in theory, but I am wondering how the actual numbers (horizontal and vertical) work. For example, if I drop a square image into a scene, when I add the Position Effect if I set the horizontal to, say, +30 and the vertical to the same, the actual distance the image moves horizontally is not the same as vertically. I would expect it to move the same distance (pixels).
