VideoPad 13.09 video export is often black screen


Recommended Posts

Haven't spotted reports of that here.  What are the PC's specs:  CPU/GPU/RAM?  Are you using the default export settings?

Go to OPTIONS | ADVANCED (or EDITING) tab and in the bottom GPU processor area change from default to None (CPU Only).

Report back.

I5- 4 core I believe. Intel HD Graphics, 16 gb ram. No prob. with previous versions. This time tried with a "Stabilized" video.

Was set for "default" originally. Tried "None", "CPU Only" and "Intel HD Graphics family". Still same result.

Please share the project, so someone can check it out and propose a fix.  It's easy, takes only minutes and can be private.  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 ---  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.* - to upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.    Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file. 
  •     Get link --- Get a public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. If necessary change "restricted" to "anyone with the link can view" 
  •     Share ---     Click COPY LINK | DONE.  Paste that link here, or click the folder at the top-right of this forum to message it privately to me.  It won't be shared.

          *    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.

What Videopad version is being used?  Look at the bottom-right corner of the window.

Install the latest.  For licensed users upgrades are free for up to six months from purchase date.  After that, VP will continue to fully function but a fee will be required in order to register the newest.  Retain your old install file and registration info.

Upload and share your project, per the instructions above.  Someone will check it out and come up with a solution.
