viewing an audio track in same proportion as video


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm using multiple audio sources on several tracks in a big VideoPad project and can't seem to find a way to view them along a timeline that's proportional to the video they're matched with. Of course I can see them in a preview window and adjust fade points within that window, but matching them up to the precise points in the video seems impossible, and it's just guesswork WHERE on that timeline the fade points will fit. Am I missing something? It seems ridiculous that a good program like videopad won't let you see the two side by side in the same stretched or compressed view so you can adjust those fade points precisely.

I'm using videopad 4.11 on a windows xp pc that I keep offline so it's not slowed down by antivirus software, so if there's something new that will solve my problem, I won't be able to download it. :(

Hi Borate, I should have asked: Is there any way I can get the red line in the audio Clip Preview to move along with the red line in the Timeline so I can zoom in and precisely adjust the fade points? (That clip doesn't begin at the start of the video. I'm using multiple audio clips at various points along the Sequence. Sorry that I didn't get the terminology right. I haven't used videopad much yet.) I hope this link to the screenshot works.

the I see where you're coming from now.  There has been the suggestion that it would be handy to have the audio blue-line adjustable on the timeline as well as in the preview window.

But in lieu of that enhancement, consider playing the timeline until it reaches the IN point where audio is to be adjusted.  SPLIT the track at that point.  Play to the OUT point and split again.  Then click the newly split-out clip's audio track and you will see it isolated (in white) in the preview window, showing the precise IN/OUT points.  Perhaps this approach will suffice for the time being.

If you want to be selective, click the small chevron to the right of the split button to choose which tracks to split.
