Dear friends, First of all, I would like to say that I use VP for many years, from the era of the early versions. I am a pianist and I make small videos for my piano covers and lessons, usually 3-5 minutes duration. VP was fast, flexible and easy to use. Upgrades are always welcome, some really gave a boost, but others unfortunately proved to be huge step backs. First and biggest issue, the automatic snap! I do not know why the developers listen to every person asking nonsense, but auto-snap is a huge pain in the butt of the serious users. After all, dear gentlemen of NCH, VP is supposed to be a professional tool, it is in it's title 😉. We do not use it to make selfie slideshows, neither clips from our vacation. We need to have full access to the timeline editor, and this means that we have to place clips and audio aside and use them later to fill gaps. YES, we need to keep and control gaps in the timeline. How are we supposed to do this, when every time we shorten a small part, all clips come to the left trying to snap??? By pressing the ALT key every time? Not practical. This is a huger burden for professional editing. I can understand you might want to satisfy the amateur user, who just wants to join 2-3 clips, but we kindly ask you, please, at least put a check box in the options to disable the cursed thing!😖 After version 6, at some guys request (who wanted to have VP look like Adobe's products), you changed the colors to dark gray with blue audio wave. This is totally unfriendly to everyone who spends hours zooming and matching audio. Especially the blue wave, when selected is very hard to see clearly. The best colors in my opinion where the original before version 5. Crisp and clear. Since this is my personal opinion, It would be nice if colors could be s selectable. In the latest version there are some awful vertical white lines on the timeline of many audio clips. The appear only after a specific zoom. I suppose this is a bug, since they did not exist in previous versions. Again, they make it impossible to work with the editor. Please see a sample here: https://ibb.co/m8QKVYy I reported the issue to tech support and waiting for feedback. Thank you!
I recently started using the newer version of VideoPad after it updated when I upgraded to Windows 10 on my PC laptop. I have the unlicensed home version. I love the more easy to use features in this version although I am having one issue. I don't use transitions - fades, crossfades, shapes, reveals, etc. All of my edits are fast cut; in essence it's "no transition". Just video clips set next to each other. Most of them run smoothly but oddly enough I get a few that have the quickets of a black screen flash in between them. It's almost like a burst of black screen; a few milliseconds. I have tried everything to get rid of them. I have zoomed as much as you can to ensure that there is no tiny gap between the 2 clips on the clip preview bar. I have made the most miniscule of cuts to tighten the clips up. Sometimes the clips aren't there after I do those tiny cuts but inevitably they pop back up. I thought that once I actually uploaded the real video onto my hard drive from VideoPad, it may fix this but it didn't. In fact, on my last video, I can point out places that it happened so you can see. It's happening on my new video and I wish I could stop this! I've tried to read on these forums for a similar problem but I haven't come across anyone else having this issue. I thought there might be a link to someone discussing the padding that clips that are in HD have when edited together, but I don't think they have the same black-screen flash issue that I do. Any thoughts? In the meantime, here is a link to a video I uploaded. If you look between the clips at the 0:21 second mark. (between the clip fo running down the stairs and then the clip of going to the glass door), this is one example. You will see how it's not smooth and there is a black flash. There are quite a few but another example is at the 0:57 mark (between the clip of the girl reacting and then the clip that begins dancing by the post office box). ANY THOUGHTS?!?!
