Hi Ilene

I just updated my earlier reply, I was able to fix by replacing clips.

Maybe you just didn't have that image in your x7 Sample lib but I agree it's weird that it didn't ask you for the relink.

Hi Ilene

The project opened but only showed the clips as Black and White, no re-link was available, no errors.
The clips just simply did not display correctly.

I think I would be able to replace clip with another and get it working, a bit of a pain to do with lots of clips.

Yes I am able to repair by replacing the clips with another clip. Drag from library hold CTRL key then drop clip.

Almost certain its a 32 v 64 bit problem?

Would help if other X7 64 bit users were able to try your project?

Hi

Ignoring the pop-up tool hint, if you press the play button does your clip play?

If you trim a clip the play button will play the remaining clip, if you wish to play the deleted / removed parts then press Shift then play, that will play all including the removed frames.

Try this….
Using one of the Video Samples, (SP-V01.mp4) place in top track, cut in half, delete one of the halves.
View the white bar below the preview screen, shows the active section and only plays that section unless you press shift.

Interesting Trevor, so the 32bit Vsp that i sent you didn't open in x7 32bit but did open in x8 64 bit?

Asik

The point is we were saving Motion Paths and FX filters are not “motion paths”

There are ways to save the FX filter by adding the effect to the FX favourites.

And if you want to save all edits then the Instant Projects will do that.

Hi Ilene

The samples were fine, I had noticed the FX filter but chose to ignore it.

I did have problems opening the project in X7, the clips showed but either black or Black and White as though requiring a relink. The program did not ask for that so was in limbo.
My only thought that the VSP was created using 32 Bit program, I am running 64Bit

The project opened ok in X8 so was able to test, so why not X7?
Just repeated the above today, no change there.

Dragging the clip to the library is as good a way of retaining the edits, pity Copy Attributes is not available from the library.

Creating an Instant Project of the image is another way to preserve your edits, but again not straight forward.

As a thought saving Motion Paths should be available after right click, no reason to open the Customise Motion panel to do that?

Have you (inadvertently) set Project In and Out points? A Blue line above the top timeline track? The Play button only plays between an in and out both in Clip and Project mode, unless you hold down shift. Clear the in and out points and it will play the whole project.

Guys, if it's not a bug than why there is the option to select attributes or not?
We can only hope is an X9 enhancement a programer left a track behind or forgot to add the missing 2 lines of code.

Ok. Thanks. Not a bug. I have those filters saved separately. I create a media folder for them within VS and copy the image from my timeline to that folder. I will save the combination together so I remember how to use it again. I will even go as far to label them overlay 1, overlay 2 -- I will see thumbnail and remember how to place them. Corel makes it a cumbersome process but I've made it work. I have so many of these combos saved that its hard to remember --- but as I need it I insert it to the end of the timeline and if I like it i copy the attributes to the current image I'm working with.
The images(s) in the timeline I sent is an example of that. One image has a filter and maybe motion (don't recall) and the image below just has motion.
I think I'm good! Thanks for the thorough check! I guess that wasn't a good example to send you ... Should have all been saved motion paths.
Best
Ilene

VideoStudio • Re: program crashing when overlaying images

Tue, 06/02/2015 - 03:30
Hi downundermm

Thanks for the samples, a picture paints a thousand words…..

I don’t have a problem with that project, I was able to set crossfade and adjust the durations of the beef images. I little tricky keeping the lengths correct when working with the overlay track
I have attached my version with Crossfades.

But as I say no crashes.

Did you check Preferences (F6) edit Tab for those transition effects as mentioned to Alistair, just in case you have the same problem?

Hi Alistair

Trailryder is correct and you should be seeing the transition options, a lot of them........
What do you see when selecting the Default Transition effect, should also show the full list.

You might try the renaming the 18.0 folder to 18.0_old then restart the program, and let it rebuild the folder. I don't know if the effects are a part of that folder but if they are that might fix things.

Go to C: drive> Users> Your Name> App Data> Roaming> Ulead> Corel Video Studio(64)(if your running 64 bit)> 18.0 folder and rename it 18.0_old.


The folder structure is hidden by windows. You should set show Hidden Files and Folders from any open folder Tools - Folder Options - View Tab
Otherwise place "Appdata" in the start search box to find the Roaming folder.

VideoStudio • Re: Splitting Audio with Freeze Frame

Tue, 06/02/2015 - 02:42
Hi Guys

Post updated

If in Project mode Split Audio shows – Edit - Freeze Frame
In Clip mode no Split Audio shows?

The Split Audio box does not allow me to select it, so does not seem to work anyway?

Hi

well not really a bug, the FX filter is not part of the Motion Paths.

We are saving specifically the Motion Paths and not additional edits.

If you wish to save all then the Instant Projects would do that?

Thanks for testing. So Corel VSX8 is worthless for those who want ful quality 3840x2160 snapshots fron there UHD footage.

Too bad to hear this, but I have found 4K videos are not handled as well as 1080p ones yet. My camera can create files filmed using 4KPhoto. These files are 8MP photos instead of typical video files where frames use information from prior and following frames. I have yet to bring one of these 4KPhoto files in VS. I am wondering if your files are 4KPhoto by chance (my camera is LUMIX GH4).

VideoStudio • Splitting Audio with Freeze Frame

Mon, 06/01/2015 - 19:46
Hi all,

I searched this forum back till 2010 for this question and did not find it previously asked...

When inserting a Freeze Frame, the pdf manual mentions a "Split Audio" check box in the Freeze Frame dialog box, but I can't find it. Where is that check box? (I'm assuming we're not talking about the normal "Split Audio" command, found in the Edit menu, which I'm familiar with).

Quoting the manual for Step 4 of inserting a Freeze Frame:
"Note: If you want to suspend audio on other tracks during the freeze, enable the Split Audio check box. This splits and suspends all audio-related tracks (voice, music, video overlays) for the duration of the freeze.".
But I don't see that Split Audio "check box". (Again, the normal Split Audio found in the Edit Menu is a command, not a "check box"). So am I missing it? Am I not doing something properly, from what you can tell from my post? If it is indeed missing, is the split audio check box a disconnect between the software developer and the writers?

Work Around: In the meantime, I discovered that if I split the audio from the video track using the "Split Audio" command, and then do a "Split Clip" on the audio clip at the same location where I intend to Freeze Frame the video track, FIRST, then Ripple Editing will create the appropriate split for me in the audio track. Regardless, the manual makes it sound like this is supposed to be automatically handled.

Thanks again!

VideoStudio • Can I delete a saved Menu - X7

Mon, 06/01/2015 - 18:14
Hi,
I created a DVD menu at the end of a project and saved the menu. Is it possible to delete that menu file (if there is one) so I can make a completely new menu? I have tried to redo the menu but keep getting items from the old menu I can't get rid off.

Thanks

Can you explain exactly what you mean by "attempted to overlay", please. I am a bit confused since you seem to have overlaid them already. But do you mean you then attempted either to play the project to see how it looked, and the program crashed; or did you try to render (Share) the project and it crashed?
