  1. I'll probably try this first, since "one giant video" is most of what got me here in the first place. Thank you!
  2. Unfortunately, they come pre-timed from Otter if I download them as a .srt. But I can download a .txt or .docx transcription of the video, and then build the .srt myself...but but I'm trying to get these out within 2 weeks of the initial class date (basically, we meet every two weeks, and I'm trying to get each one done before we hold the following class. That hasn't happened since January.) But thank you for the heads up on that. <musing aloud, left here as a note to myself>Ooooohh...I wonder if, at the beginning, after breaking the video into segments I can run sections of .txt
  3. Hello again, I return to bring a final update. The subtitling process on the re-spec'd, smaller chunk is going smoothly on VP's end (I'm having to manually reset all the times even though I imported a time-coded .SRT, which...pain in the butt, but 🤷‍♂️). VP had a little "blue buffering box" fit a few minutes ago, but I also clicked a whole bunch of things in series, so I blame myself for that one. Thanks again for all the help, suggestions, and patience. Cheers!
  4. Hello borate and Nationalsolo, Well, between the file borate sent me with the altered resolution, working in a smaller segment*, making sure I zoom back out on the timeline after making a video edit before pushing play in the sequence preview, and <sheepish look> making sure everything is fully loaded into VP properly </sheepish look> things are working significantly better now...at least as far as the "editing the video" part. This last half hour has a lot of the identity-protected student in it, so I haven't gotten back to the subtitling yet. I also went back to the first
  5. I have VLC (I use as my music player) and another program (I was going to use as my "last resort" subtitle editor if this forum couldn't help) already, so if needs I'll try those for conversion first, but I'll also keep your suggestion of Prism. I'll check the Zoom settings later tonight and see what I can find. I've no idea why it's in 2144x1080 and there's absolutely no need for these to be HD, and if I'd known that's what we were getting I'd have sorted that sooner. *eyeroll* The files you sent back to me just finished downloading. I'm going to plug everything into VP now and check f
  6. Thank you for the "wait until everything's done loading properly" info/admonishment. I didn't realize I wasn't waiting long enough (I was usually waiting 10 min or so before starting) and this may have been the source of all my problems, and I apologise for that. The projects are always going to be caption-heavy, there won't be any getting around that. 😒 I had no idea it was in HD. If you have a guess, was this how I downloaded it from Zoom, or something I'd accidentally changed in VP? We usually take a break in the class, around the hour mark, but we'd always simply paused the recor
  7. I just finished uploading the files to G-drive...but realized I hadn't finished skewing the identity of one of the students (this would be normal procedure for this student, nothing to do with sending it to you), so I'm going to go finish that and then re-upload everything to G-drive and give you the link when that is done. Sorry about the delay. Apr. 7, 06:49 Pacific Time ETA: So, I finally got all the necessary identity edits done - including just cutting out about 5 min of video toward the end, which jacked up the timecode on the subtitles, but I'll deal if it means you can figure out w
  8. Hi Nationalsolo, So, for comparison: Windows 10 Home, Version 20H2, OS build 19042.867, Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0 (copypaste from computer settings) CPU: AMD A4-5300B APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 3.40 GHz Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 7480D (mode 1920x1080, True Color 32 bit, 60Hz Properties of original video file, according to VP: .mp4, dimensions 2144x1080, sample rate 32000 Properties of original video file, according to original video file: .mp4, dimensions 2144x1080, frame rate 25 fps (which, wtf? That's not something I set, that's unaltered, "all I did was h
  9. Update: Ok, so I didn't even make it an hour and Nope, the 10.26 beta is worse. In the subtitle work screen, after a single keystroke (say, adding a comma to a sentence) I'd have to wait up to a minute and a half for the timeline to come back up. And heaven forbid I try to do anything during that time, or the program would freeze. If I did multiple keystrokes (say, adding a word to a sentence) it would: - take even longer for the timeline to come back up - the subtitle work screen would disappear behind the main work screen, then come to the front again and/or - the preview pa
  10. One would think it wouldn't be a problem, but *shrug* here I am. 😔 None of my stuff is high def. The class is recorded during a 2-hr Zoom meeting (imported to VP as an .mp4). I close-caption it, do the above minor edits (including trimming a little time), and spit it on to a link-access only YouTube channel when I'm done. My computer runs 64-bit Win 10, so I'm now wondering if running a 32bit version of VP on my 64bit OS may be part of the problem, and/or that the original .mp4 is nearly two hours. Again, one would think that's not an issue but...I'm not willing to discount anything at
  11. Anyone know where I can find what the minimum computer hardware specs for VP versions 10.12 and the current version (10.24) are? I have a pretty basic, off-the-shelf consumer-grade 4 year old computer. September last year I found myself in need of a program that could primarily do closed-captioning (.SRT), but that I could also do basic editing in (crossfade to text overlay, mute a single audio track, blur a section of screen and the blur doesn't need to move). I do not do this professionally. It's for a private class I co-teach, and several of the students have needs that require we hav
