program crashes on export - Abnormal exception


Recommended Posts

i am trying to export a 4 min video and the program keeps crashing at about 75% with the words Abnormal exception. It doesn't seem to matter what format/ size i am trying for although i am going for smaller files without HD. youtube 720 or even 480... mp4 or avi.

program version 6.27, laptop is an intel core i5-7200 with 8gb ram with Windows 10

any ideas anyone?

Let's take a look...

Please share the project. Here's how...

1.  Save your project.  Then, with it on the timeline, click the FILE menu. SAVE PORTABLE PROJECT AS to any convenient folder.

2.  Open the folder that contains the saved files and ZIP them all.

3.  Upload the zip file to DropBox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive or the like.  It's free.

4.  Make the uploaded file public (share it) and copy the shared link.

5.  Paste the link into this forum.

Huge UHD files can be problematic.  In most cases, they're not needed.  Suggest shooting in or converting to 1920 x 1080 HD which usually gives excellent results.

Prism is an NCH conversion tool, but this can also be handled - file-by-file - in Videopad itself via export settings. Your mp4 files were converted to HD and substituted in the project, which then exported without crashing.

As a matter of practice, consider converting files to low res "proxies" and placing them in a folder separate from the originals.  Video editing is resource intensive.  Time spent up front will pay off handsomely during the edit.

When satisfied with the project, right-click on each source file in the bin and use FILE|CHANGE FILE to substitute the HD originals.  Alternatively, if the proxies and originals have exactly the same names, they can be swapped out with a file manager.  VP will recognize the files that it finds in its project folder.  Take care that the two sets of files are independently backed up..
