You can split the audio. Clean up in Audacity and return to VS in the state you want it.
I make a habit of splitting the audio away from the video in case I want to treat it in any way, Audio Ducking for example.

Sorry for the confusion, this is the video remove noise effect. edit (at least that is what I understood)

Named noise reducer.

I'm running X8 on XP and it runs great.
On the other hand, I never loaded 100 clips to VS. If I hit a brick wall in VS I convert my video/audio to friendly formats.
X8 isn't perfect as unfortunately X9 will not be but neither pinnacle 18.5 or PD13 are.
But certainly many improvements where made from X4 to X6 to X8.

This is not a criticism of XP, which I used for a number of years, but an attempt to explore OPs problems with X8.

Hi, well it worked out at an hour per min! which is terrible.
Did a test and removed the noise reducer and it rendered the whole 5 mins in around 10mins.

Won't be using that filter again then lol

Again I do not claim to be an expert and others will answer this better. You are still running XP, I wonder if this is your problem? I have had no problems with VS X8 running under Windows 7 and there are now reports that X8 will run under Windows 10.
There will always be a problem running newer programmes with older systems and vice versa. Everything has to match eventually. (which, lets face it, is how these software companies make their money)

Try downloading a free background clip from http://www.motionworship.com/free-worsh ... ackground/ and then use it's specs to create your file. Or use the specs as shown on http://support.renewedvision.com/index. ... ecommended.
Personally I would just keep my camera's aspect ratio for future proofing. (ProPresenter does an anamorphic scaling to the 16:9 clip for 4:43 display).

So with it starting again, I continued my test. I have a nice collection of short videos, a minute or two each, so it would be convenient to have them all laid out in thumbnails in the Corel VideoStudio Pro browser. There was over a 100 of them so I imported them. Came in as before, about 1/3 with solid black thumbnails. Too much black I decided so I tried to delete them. Crash again with the same Steam Loading error. It appears that Corel VideoStudio Pro can only handle a limited number of imports at a time.

So I looked up the error and found http://howto.corel.com/en/c/Load_from_s ... Studio_Pro

I renamed folder, but that did not work because it it said "Rename the Corel VideoStudio Pro folder to Corel VideoStudio Pro_old" when it should have said Rename the Corel VideoStudio Pro folder to Corel VideoStudio (64) Pro_old which then allowed Corel VideoStudio Pro to start but without the project I was using to test Corel VideoStudio Pro.

So, is there a Win 7 codec pack that Corel likes, or would the first one I tried work with a new project. Anyone begin to understand what I mean about love/hate with Corel VideoStudio Pro?

VideoStudio • Corel Studio X8 slow render

Sat, 08/01/2015 - 16:54
Hi

Just a question.

Currently outputting a 5 min video, but in around 2 mins of it I used the noise reduction effect.
The rendering process is painfully slow! akin to my old Win 95 machine lol.
Is this simply a result of the effect or is something else at play?

Cheers

Mike

Well, I found that Corel VideoStudio Pro was creating black thumbnails for about 1/3 of my imported videos, even though the thumbnails showed correctly in Windows 7 browser. So I searched the forum and found that someone had solved the same problem by updating media codecs. So I searched the net and found a windows 7 condex pack on cnet http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-Code ... 65840.html

I installed it, rebooted and started Corel VideoStudio Pro. I then selected all of some media thumbnails in Corel VideoStudio Pro in order to try reloading them, and initiated a delete, whereupon instead of deleting, the program crashed with:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name:APPCRASH
Application Name:vstudio.exe
Application Version:17.1.0.22
Application Timestamp:538721fe
Fault Module Name:mfc110.dll

Fault Module Timestamp:51b4fccb
Exception Code:c0000005
Exception Offset:0000000000001a61

Additional Information 3:4e83
Additional Information 4:4e8329bee3437d3b5ca1f432d88d994c

So I uninstalled the codec pack and rebooted Windows, then tried to launch Corel VideoStudio Pro.

Corel VideoStudio Pro then generated a "Load from stream error" message and this message could not be terminated but looped infinitely. Even ctrl-alt-del task manger could not kill it. So I rebooted and tried again. Same error. Now Corel VideoStudio Pro will not start at all.

VideoStudio • Re: 1/3 of Video Thumbnails are black. A bug in VideoStudio

Sat, 08/01/2015 - 16:09
By "media browser window" - do you mean the library pane.

Your problem sounds like a Windows operating function - thumbnails viewed in Videostudio show the very first frame of the video and if the very first frame is plain black then the thumbnail will be black - it does not mean there is a problem with the video - - when you view the thumbnail in windows file explorer or some other programmes they may well select a frame 5 to 10 seconds into the video - which will then show an image in the thumbnail

do a few tests - put some of the videos in the timeline of Videostudio and expand the timeline to view individual frames - I am confident you will find the ones showing a black thumbnail will have some black frames at the beginning.

VideoStudio • 1/3 of Video Thumbnails are black. A bug in VideoStudio?

Sat, 08/01/2015 - 15:52
In Corel VideoStudio Pro X7, when I import video media into the media browser window, about 1/3 of the video thumbnails for them are black with the others being OK. When I look at the same media files in a Windows 7 browser, they are all OK with correct previews, so Windows 7 thumb preview settings are correct. I can click on one of the black thumbnails and play it and it plays normally.

PS It really seems to be a VS12 problem: I tried the Prism Video Converter as well, and again VS12 choked on the avi clips while Windows Movie Maker handled them properly

With all due respect - what is your gripe? VSX8 works and is a good video editor. If you don't like it go for another editor.
I suggested you compare your computer to the Corel supplied PC spec. If your PC is as good or better than the spec, VS will work. If not, you can upgrade. All the recent batch of editors require computers with a decent specification.
I think a substantial number of users are experienced and knowledgeable people What do you think we are? I have used VideoStudio from X5 and the main responders in this Forum have much greater experience than I.


Hi Terfyn and all,

Well, I have an approach/avoidance or love/hate conflict with Corel VideoStudio Pro. It was the 2nd or 3rd editor I tried, and I tried two more before returning to it this month. I have spend many hours with Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio, Cyberlink Power Director, Lightworks, and to a much lesser extent a few others). I love Corel VideoStudio Pro interface and features but was concerned about performance/software-hardware compatibility and support (which, as I think everyone knows is terrible). I had some problem with Corel VideoStudio Pro (don't now recall details) some months back and it was past the one month support deadline so I'd have had to pay to figure it out. Tied online also for fix but no luck. Since then I reinstalled Windows 7 and I've gone back now to give Corel VideoStudio Pro another try in the hope that it was something in Windows that caused the difficulty.

But really, I suspect you may not have actually read the horror stories of the computer-literature and competent users who have had deal-breaking software/hardware problems with Corel VideoStudio Pro. I'm an x-tech writer with specialization in computer program documentation and 20+ years experience in computers and with extensive experience with Windows software, yet still I ran into problems with Corel VideoStudio Pro despite my predisposition to love it. My concern is that I may come up against a serious problem again after spending many hours reviewing how to use it. Yet hopefully, maybe not, but that's the basis of my caution and careful reading of both positive and negative reviews of the program as well as seeking additional input from this forum.

VideoStudio • Re: Corel VideoStudio X8 unusual aspect ratios

Sat, 08/01/2015 - 12:35
Just what the doctor ordered. I saw the first video where in the comments the guy asked for some help...but not the second video where it explained it all. I was so close on my own too, I skipped over AVI/XVID. At the moment I'm doing a test convert with some recorded 3440x1440 World of Warships footage to see how well it works. The long term intent was to splice together a bunch of videos and add my own content in.

Thanks again ---- now I can stick with VideoStudio which is my personal favorite for the types of projects I do.

Cheers,
Justin M.
