Sequence Preview Resolution?


Recommended Posts

So I was using the old version of VideoPad and thought the new one might run better, so I shelled out for it. While much better, it's still having the issue of "wow, these basic effects are a lot for me to handle :(" (it's not my computer, I promise lol) and the sequence preview stutters, lags, etc. And I'm fine with that because it exports fine and that's good enough. But right now it's stuttering so badly I'm having issues seeing what I'm doing. What I used to do is lower the sequence preview's resolution which took care of the issue. The problem is I can't figure out how to do it now. It used to be in options, but I don't see it there anymore. How can I lower the sequence preview's resolution so I can check what I'm doing?

Mention the specs of your PC and what version of VP you are using.   What is the resolution of the bulk of the source files?

There's no longer a provision for PV resolution adjustment, but you can drag the window to smaller dimensions.

After the project fully caches (green line above the thumbnails) there should be minimal if any stuttering.

Under OPTIONS | EDITING tab, toggle the "Use Hardware Acceleration" item to see if that has an effect.

Verify that your video driver and Direct-X are up to date.    https://www.nch.com.au/kb/10265.html

Let's take a look at your project and see how it performs here.  It's easy, quick and can be totally private.  Just carefully follow these four steps...

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 ---  Upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.*  Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file.
