NH_Nick Posted November 29, 2022 Share Posted November 29, 2022 New topic here, as the thread was dated. System Videopad 12.28 64 bit (which I believe is the latest build) Win10 machine (64-bit operating system, x64-based processor) AMD Ryzen 3 3200G with Radeon Vega Graphics 3.60 GHz 32 GB RAM Video Files From a Canon Vixia HF M41 Camera File Type -- .MTS Individual File Size/Length - Just under 2 gigs each/11:24 in length (the camera splits the scene into individual files) Resolution - 1920x1080 at 29.97 fps Problem Definition When I butted 2 sequential files together on the same track, the preview in VP played fine, however, on export to an MP4 file at the same resolution, the video on the first minute or so froze. Audio continued as normal. After a minute, the output file UN-froze and played normally. What I Tried -- Everything I could think of, including (not in order)- Updating (I was already at the latest and, presumably, greatest) Restart Clear Cache Reboot Start a new project with JUST the 2 files butted against each other (same result) Output to a different file type (.mpg) Same result on all of these Eventual Resolution Convert the files to individual .MP4 format Start a new project butting the two MP4 files together, and exporting to a new continuous .MP4 file Import the resulting MP4 into my original project and use that in place of the segment that butted the 2 .MTS files together Export the entire project as .MP4 (1920/1080 29.97fps) That worked!!! Hooray - but what a pain in the ass!!! Anyway, I hope this helps somebody. What should have been a 1-2 hour job turned into about 4-5 hours of frustration. Good luck, and let me know if questions Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
