Rainbow effect on videos after export and upload to Youtube. (Looks like 3D)

Recommended Posts


Someone please help me!!! I am very new to VideoPad and I tried to make a few videos by recording some gameplay of some videogames I play with friends. I edit the videos how I want them to be and then I preview the video and it looks great! then when I upload the video to youtube it makes the video come out with a rainbow effect on it. It looks like the video is 3D or something!! this is super annoying after putting in a bunch of time editing the video and feeling great about how it turned out then when I upload it I'm left with a huge disappointment...

Can't believe just found this - we have exactly the same problem! Been searching for help for ages and yet never saw this thread!!

The thread I've just created on the topic is here - we can try share answers!

We've been using videopad for a while but have just had to buy new copies as our old PC failed. It's happened ever since with the new installation.

Right - if you export as a video (into .mp4, youtube 720 format) in videopad and then upload that video file directly in youtube then uploads in 2D correctly. The video file created by Videopad is 2D as well.

So that works as a work around - it looks like the problem is within the inbuilt youtube uploader in videopad.

Youtube used to have a checkbox that you will check if the video you were uploading is in 3D. It now doesn't have that and relies on the metadata within the videofile to identify if is in 3D format. Perhaps the videopad youtube exporter/uploader is encoding the video with that metadata in, which is why youtube recognises it as a 3D video?

What's strange is that whatever encoder videopad uses to export as an .mp4 in "youtube 720" format (which I think is the same as the inbuilt youtube exporter/uploader uses) must not include that data. Maybe it's the uploader part of videopad that does?

Thank you, and thanks for the prompt response.

Have followed the link to update with the latest version - - haven't got anything to upload now but will come back to you if we still have problems.

Thanks once again for getting on this so quickly!

We've applied the fix to the current web-site download version. Please re-download VideoPad to get the problem fixed.


Has this been reported for Mac OS versions?  I am having the blur problem on a Macbook Pro.  Here are two links:

The focused version was first made as an MP4 file and then uploaded.  The blurred version was a direct to YouTube file.
