Cannot Change Video Track Height


Recommended Posts

How to increase the height of only the Video Track 1?  I have a title screen in Video Track 2 and audio in the audio track, neither of which need to be increased in size.  However the images in Video Track 1 are so small, I can't see or find the transistions or effects buttons.

In recent releases this may be what you want.  Options can vary from version to version.  Right-click in an open area at the left of the track to see the options menu.

If trans or efx icons don't show, expand the track horizontally.  Drag the slider at the bottom-right of the window.  image.png

Thank you.  Expanding horizontally did give me the icons.  So I will be able to continue building my video.

But, I've never encountered such small images in Video Track 1 before.  Perhaps there's a glich caused by Windows 11.

Might it be wise to remove and reinstall Videopad???

Not likely Windows 11.  If there's only a single video track, the thumbs will be considerably larger.  But the above expansion tactics should provide a decent size.  And you certainly can reinstall.  Slight feature variations can appear, and in some installs this feature may be one of them...

Share the project and we'll see what it looks like here.  It's easy, takes but a few minutes and can be private.  Just follow these four 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.
