Wed, 03/04/2015 - 22:29
Which ones are you talking about? A large number of NewBlue FX come with X8 Ultimate, so yes of course they are compatible with it.

And if you are talking about the NewBlue Essentials packs bought separately, you have to make sure you get the 64 bit version of them if you have the 64 bit version of X8. And you possibly have to add the installation path to X8 manually when you install them. But otherwise, yes they too are compatible. I have Essentials Packs I through VI and they all work.

VideoStudio • Re: VS X8 Problem installing

Wed, 03/04/2015 - 21:44
INCOMPLETE INSTALL of x8-Ultimate:

I do not have ANY material in the libraries Instant project, General, HD Projects, Graffiti, or HTML5.
Here's a screen-capture-video of my symptoms ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fW1QInNpqI

I've opened a case ticket 02248772 and Inocencio has given me the same cut-and-paste answer twice.
- resetting the program to the factory defaults; 9 steps provided saying:
... renamed Ulead Systems/Corel VideoStudio Pro/18.0 ..Rename 18.0 to 18.0_old
- re-install the Program content pack included on your order confirmation

So I did that and after 6+ hours wasted [good that I'm retired] I still have the same incomplete install.

VSX8_Cleanup.zip


----------------

Ok Brian - I ran that ... did a full re-install [the three .EXE files that came with my purchase confirmation and serial number]
x8_InstallALL.jpg

I selected install all ... then later came back and selected each individually.
Still have nothing in those 5 instant project folders.

Oh and look at the 102 templates I have in my C:\Users\Jim\Documents\Corel VideoStudio Pro\VSPTemplate folder
VSPTemplate Folder.jpg

So why don't I have any of these showing in my library ??

I have 30-days support after my Feb 28 purchase - and I'm getting zero Corel resolution assistance ... so I'm appealing to the community.
I wish somehow I could get this case reassigned to Austin ... on x7 problems & questions he was TERRIFIC

Thanks ... Jim

Thanks Brian,

I have had another look at Custom Motion and it may work for me. I have found another option and that is the New Blue PIP filter. If you set beginning and end key frames to 100% you can then adjust the opacity as you wish using key frames.

The rendering works now, you have to convert/remove the clips prior to the crash. I uses handbrake and converted it into Ipad format and added again. Only two movies were incorrect.

Still weird that it can't handle the files.

VideoStudio • Re: Corel VideoStudio X7 Service Pack 1 Released

Wed, 03/04/2015 - 17:24

An update on the X7 SP1 pack problem.

You have done nothing wrong Candy.

There is NO doubt there is a problem with SP1.

After reinstalling from the DVD, I bit the bullet and installed Sp1, same as before, hangs up, sound garbled. etc.

Reinstalled without Sp1, works correctly.

Still surprised that Corel is not interested in this issue.

As I suspected, those Properties do indeed indicate that your phones use variable frame rates. They are close to "standard" frame rates but just a small amount off, and that is probably enough to make Video Studio stop when it reaches them. All I can suggest is that you use a Video Converter to convert them with the same Properties but with a standard frame rate e.g. 29.97 frames per second (which is the exact figure required for the NTSC standard, though often shown as "30"). Maybe you could even use QuickTime Pro for the conversion if you have it. Otherwise, you would need a video converter. Many of us here use the freeware Format Factory which does a good job, including with .mov files. Just be careful when installing it to Decline the offers of installing other toolbars/search engines during the installation process.

I am not sure what to suggest doing with the 24.003 video. While an exact 24 fps is regarded as being the "cinematic" frame rate, 25 fps is the standard rate for PAL. However, if you are converting the rest to 29.97 fps, this could later cause difficulties mixing in a slower frame rate. If you converted the 24.003 fps to 29.97, this is usually done by simply repeating existing frames. If the video in those clips is relatively slow or static, this might not really be noticeable, and it could in fact be that your phone used that slower frame rate because there was no action being filmed. If there is a lot of action, however, those repeated frames will make that video a little jerky.

after removing file 2, the rendering continues and stops at another clip. The only difference is the framerate. both "infected" movies are 30,008 frames/sec.

now trying to render the project again....

VideoStudio • Re: overlays - split screens

Wed, 03/04/2015 - 16:48
Those dotted lines you are worrying about are just the way the image displays in X6 - they are not part of the project - I did not put them there - they do not impact on the way the project works - they have no relevance at all - look at my X7 screen shot just above here posted on March 4th 2015 - no dotted lines that is how yours looks - they are purely the way the screen looked when I did the original in X6 - they serve no purpose - they do nothing

The mask is one continuous file - it is in both screen shots you refer to.

The only difference I see between my screen and yours is that you are viewing "Thumbnail and file name" - while I prefer "Thumbnail only"

look - no dotted lines in X7 (or X8)

Custom motion will also do pan and zoom at the same time - so why not use one function to all three together.

Brian.
I got your project from the cloud and opened in x8 which I purchased on 02/28 as a pre-sale offer.
[having significant install problems and level 2 support [Inocencio] is little help ... I'll post a help-request shortly to the VS forum.

From your above x7 screen shot, I see that the dotted lines at 3.0 sec no longer show.
In my email reply - I've asked if those "markers" help in any way to position clips.

Also - when I imported your project into x8, the MASK still shows once in the timeline, not as individual 3.0 sec masks per your x7 screen shot.
Is that a "setting" checkbox?

Everything worked just great using the smart package and I've learned quite a lot from digging into how you did the CROP feature.

Thanks so very much.
Jim

Can you right click on one of the iPhone 5 and one of the iPhone 6 clips in the Video Studio timeline, please, and then upload ALL of its Properties here -- or else take a screen grab of the Properties box and upload it here as an Attachment. It is possible that your iPhones film using a variable frame rate, and Video Studio has difficulties with that.

VideoStudio • Re: VideoStudio Ultimate X7 Capture Video Not Working.

Wed, 03/04/2015 - 10:15
Well although "Import from Digital media" will work like that it is not my first choice for files which are already on the PC - surely Import Video/image is the best option for files you already have - Import Digital media is best used for inserting from a DVD.

But Terfyn what MailmAn is trying to do *IS* get files from an external device {camcorder} onto a PC - so my choice would be capture - the files are not on the computer yet.

Also, in reference to what Terfyn said, no I have not tried "Import from Digital Media" because I am not doing that. I believe that is only for recording directly off of a DV camcorder, which is not what I am doing.

No it is the other way round. Import from digital media is for bringing in files from your PC folders, your SD card or any digital media source.
Capture video I use for downloading from a 1394 source such as a DV camcorder.
To quote from the User Manual:-
Click Capture Video to import video footage and photos from your camcorder to your computer.
Click Import from Digital Media to add media clips from a DVD-Video, AVCHD, BDMV formatted disc or from your hard drive. This feature also allows you to import video directly from AVCHD, Blu-ray Disc or DVD camcorders.

Or in my case a SD card.

Hello Jeff

I too have all the previous versions of VS. Have you any templates missing from fast flick. There should be 15. I don't remember getting the option for VS to access my previous libraries. As mentioned in my post the people at Corel also encountered the same problem with Fast Flick when they tried to install it. The link they gave me from media fire I thought might be their solution to the problem. However, it didn't work anyway.

Regards

Wyn
