GET HELP - How to share a screenshot or project


Recommended Posts

Please include VideoPad version in your post.

How to include a link to screenshots (or any file) in your forum post.  For sharing a project see below.

Screenshots can often help describe the problem better. Upload the image to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.
Copy (share) the URL and paste it into your post here.  If using Google Drive, click on GET | COPY, and confirm that it's not RESTRICTED.
The screenshot itself won't be posted, but clicking the link will display it.

How to share your project for analysis:

Share your project.  Someone will take a look and come up with a fix.  The process is easy, quick and can be done privately.  Just follow these steps...

  •     Back up --- With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left.  Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER.  Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER.
  •     Upload ---  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.* - to upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.    Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file. 
  •     Get link --- Get a public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. If necessary change "restricted" to "anyone with the link can view" 
  •     Share ---     Click COPY LINK | DONE.  Paste that link here, or click the folder at the top-right of this forum to message it privately to me.  It won't be shared.

          *    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.

To protect your privacy you can use the Personal Messenger (PM) to send the link to an Admin or Support forum ID.  Click the mail icon, top-right.  After analysis, your project will be deleted.

Direct X diagnostic (Windows only):

DirectX diagnostic report includes detailed information on your computer hardware. To get a DirectX report, press (right click on Win 10) Start button->Run. And then type in "dxdiag".  <enter>  Select "Save All Information" and save the report as a text file that can be attached to a message.
