Rendering Problem

Recommended Posts

I have Videopad 5.11 and used it for a long time with no issue. I make videos every couple of days and found it great.

About two months ago I started to have an issue when rendering videos. The MP4 would have 'flashy' bits between the different scenes I had placed together. Some pieces of the second scene would merge into the first scene a few seconds before the rest. It was an intermittent fault. I started making my videos in separate 5-6 minute pieces and putting them together in one final video and that seemed to eliminate the problem. However the rendering process soon threw up a new issue. It occasionally outputted videos where the lip sync was slightly off. 

I bought a new, higher spec computer and both problems disappeared and I made videos with no issue for about two months. Now the original 'flashing joins' issue is back again, even when I make short 5-6 minute videos. It is intermittent. I currently have three pieces of the one video that I want to join together and one piece has the 'flashy' problem but the others are clean. The problem seems to disappear when I render my video at a lower resolution but this is not something I want to do. I normally render my videos at '1920 x 1080 - YouTube 1080p' using 'auto detect'

Can someone help? I would prefer not to have to change video editor. Thanks

Possible cache corruption will be overcome by going to OPTIONS | DISK tab and Clearing Unused Cache Files.  A reinstall of the program won't hurt.

A world of changes, improvements have been made since the 5x series.  You might test drive the latest for free.  Certain features will be limited.

An issue with AVI format, H264 compressor sync has recently been remedied.

I cleared the cache. Same problem.

I reinstalled the program. Same problem.

I downloaded the new free version. It does not allow rendering of videos as one of its free features so I cannot test it.

I don't want to buy a new version on the off chance that this issue has been addressed. Please advise.

I've used videopad for quite some time. It usually worked okay, with a few annoying and time consuming bugs, the worst of which was bad rendering. Now, today, after another Windows 10 update , Videopad has once again stopped rendering satisfactorily. Return of the usual sound clips rendering issues, and playback lagging. Clips and sound all over the place even after trying several different export configs. I've used the software for many months and don't misunderstand me, Videopad has turned out a lot of videos for me. It's just that I don't want to keep wasting money and time trying to sort Videopad's repeated failings, here or at home.

Videopad cannot be relied upon to produce films to deadlines or commitments. I read all the gripes with the same old answers every time. An update every time just isn't worth my money. NCH should not be selling software with recurring faults and glitches. Just my opinion.

Is there any version of Videopad that works? Asked by a paying customer fed up of exporting disasters and wasted hours. If there is no reliable version of Videopad: why not - and why should we pay for Videopad?

8.45 and 8.63 are reliable.  Most glitches are obscure, but when a major one surfaces it's fixed, and folks here can usually provide interim workarounds.

Posting specifics here often overcomes problems quickly.

You can always test drive a trial version without payment for an indefinite period.  Try this one, which has corrected recent export issues that were allegedly caused by work on improving export speed.  Continuous improvements can have a downside.  Overall, VP works fine for many users and is a fully featured value for its marketing niche, especially when considering that it can be had for free, with limitations.

No, sorry. How many specifics do you need? If I pay for a product: I expect it to work, like everything else and everybody else. Producing videos for other people demands reliable software, every time. How long before 8.45 and 8.63 fail? After three dozen videos with time consuming problems - losing days at a time - I couldn't face going through it all again.

8.45 and 8.63 won't fail.  If they work fine for you, there's no obligation to update.  Somewhat obscure bugs that most users may never encounter have since been corrected.

Folks likely will be here to help if you stop by in the future.
