Casual (2/7)



  1. Perhaps before any editing, try a right click on the file in the bin and select "Save Audio Clip as New File." Then drop it on a new Audio track and see if it decodes any better. Sync then unlink and mute original audio track JKL
  2. VP Vers. 8.90 & 10.79 I have found many EXPORT issues are solved by rebooting after editing, then reopen and export first thing. I will generally produce multiple sequences in edit then reboot to export. Time consuming but seems to be effective in solving export video which stops playing but the position and or sound continues as well as some black screen issues. Most recently pan and zoom on clips would move video across the screen in export mp4. Rebooted and exported again worked for that as well. JKL
  3. Is there a way to see or make a list of the clips used in a sequence showing the order, start and end times? A shot list of post production so to speak.
  4. Yes. I got that. But you don’t actually have to click on the red stem, you can click anywhere in the area for new tracks, audio or video, and drag. The cursor will turn into a double arrow when you start to drag. I use this less precise way to grab and export 20 or 30 seconds of video then burn to a reusable DVD and then can check colors sound resolution etc. on a television and DVD player quickly. Of course using the transport buttons along with shift or not, allows for selecting certain clips more precisely. Where you click will be the one edge of blue and were you stop dragging will be the edge With the position indicator, or stem no matter if you drag left to right or tight to left. if you select a blue area with multiple tracks the export will play just like the sequence will with the overlaying track showing. This will occur even if the overlying track is collapsed. If the track is hidden, a red X on the eyeball to the far left, then the next tracks down are exported only. I use this more precise way to export clips or partial sequences for use in other projects or as a small short standalone video, trailer if you will. Selecting certain clips only for export could be expedited by having an export option when you right click after selecting a clip or clips. Just a suggestion for the developers. These things on MacBook Pro.
  5. Must be a Mac thing in the newer version because selecting video pad then preferences the option for dual display is there but grayed out and unavailable for use. Does not create a new clip of any kind on my end. Any version I have. This too must be a Mac issue.
  6. Mac Book Pro 13", macOS Big Sur up to date. VP 10.79 There is no audio for any projects, previous or new. As well the volume control which was located at the bottom is no longer available. Not liking the new layout. Controls come and go with resizing windows. No dual preview option now. Where can I download previous versions for mac? Is there a version update page showing the changes made to each version? UPDATE: In a previous version 8.9, I had the audio turned all the way down. Running 10.79 it was still down, with no control to adjust. I ran 8.9, raised the volume, then ran 10.79 to now have audio. Is there a way to load various versions, each with their own setting in the OS so the preferences from the previous version is not loaded?
  7. My Mac does not do that when dragging a clip to the bin. Only get the three green 'recycle' arrows in a circle. The same if I hold command, alt or control. I can right click on a clip after selecting it and copy, but no option to paste in the bin. Those option are not yet available on Mac I suppose. Have you ever seen the green recycle icon? Selecting a blue area almost works the same with the exception, for me, the blue does not show until you release the shift button, selection a small region of a clip or multiple clips. But does still do the job. -0- Is there a reason the dual preview option is not available now? The check box is there but grayed out. I am not a big fan of the new default layout either. Almost impossible to have a window undocked for use with the controls now being to the side of the preview. I make it so i have to undock all three, bin, clip and sequence windows to use them side by side.
  8. Yes. Zooming in the timeline, I do see it does attach to the clip edge, but no indicator of that given like when moving a clip. If I drag a clip to the bin, I get a green 3 arrow "recycle' icon and no clip is saved. I figure this is because it is the same clip just with different start/end points. But I am not able to save it as a new clip in that way.
  9. This is one way I solved how to save created clips for other projects. It would be great to be able and select a clip on the time line with a click and the right click menu give an option to save that to the bin or to export. Also when selecting a blue area, if it could 'auto set' to the clips edge on ending the selection would be nice. Perhaps with the use of the alt key to have that option. In looking farther, I found I can set the indicator in the sequence preview window with the 'goto previous clip edge' button, hold shift and click to 'goto next clip edge' and it will create a blue area for that clip precisely. You can click multiple times to select multiple clips, but the blue does not show up until you release the shift key. The same cannot be said for the 'next frame' button however. Perhaps in future versions. I have suggested that at the suggestion page.
  10. mac OS, VP 10.79 If I drag the position indicator arrow at the top of the timeline it only moves the indicator. If I swipe, or click and drag, on clips within the actual timeline I am then moving clips. If I drag it in the new track regions, video or audio, it creates the blue section. Actually, no matter where the position indicator is, just clicking and dragging in one of those new track areas creates the blue area with the position indicator automatically setting itself at the end of the blue region. I have confirmed the exported video is the blue area. Perhaps this is a bug or a change in VP 10.xx.
  11. I believe you can also save a step or two by clicking and dragging in the area above the timeline or below the audio. The area to drop files to make new tracks. It will turn blue. Then right click the blue area and export directly without having to make a split or a new sequence.
  12. Is the macOS version 10.79 64 bit?
  13. Sorry, I do not use those services or any similar pubic FTP(cloud) services. In person, Encrypted mail or CD/DVD is how I would do this. It may seem slow and out of date to you, but it is much more private and secure. Surely this font/menu issue is not unique to me or my setup given not a singe other program I use has this issue or cannot be corrected by settings, which of course I have tried. Thanks anyway. JKL
  14. Mac Book Pro 13", macOS Big Sur up to date. Using digital monitor port with second monitor as separate desktops. Placing VP entirely on monitor makes the menu text too large. The preview windows have overlapping data. The monitor setting are set to scale, but at all settings, the menu issue is the same. Also, if using undocked windows on both monitor and laptop, if I minimize a window on the laptop it will not reappear unless moving the entire program back to laptop. I do not have these issues with other programs. Thanks. JKL
  15. Figure this: I created a file, .wav, saved it, closed out the app. I reopened WavePad, and that file would not load. I tested again, this time saving it as .mp3. I closed out the app, reopened it then it loaded that .mp3. It played as well as the .wav file created and saved. It then would open my other audio files and all types. Without going to the logs all I can figure is it was not registering the filetypes correctly at install. Remember this is a Mac Os and App not from the store. Sometime it can be unfriendly at first. Will work with it this eve for use in VideoPad. Again, thanks for the help.
