VideoStudio • Re: VS crashes after redering to AVCHD

Hey Guys

Yer raw footage straight from gopro
Protune turned off

FWIW this is the second hero 4 silver i have had
I had to return my first one after ony 2 days due to it freezing up
Am thinking it might be the issue as my computer doesnt regognise the device when connecting via usb.

My only doubt with that is that my hero 3 silver which is recognised still has the issue at 1920 x 1080

Confused

Mick

VideoStudio • Re: VideoStudio X7 hangs when rendering

Mon, 04/27/2015 - 19:57
SOLVED: After scouring the message boards I found this idea that worked. I uninstalled VideoStudio and when I re-installed it, I did not install Service Pack 1. I can now render my projects with no issues.

There is about 5-10 mins at 99% where the program is "not responding" according to the task manager. But if I leave it alone, it finishes.

VideoStudio • VideoStudio X8 wont read X7 VSP files

Mon, 04/27/2015 - 18:54
When I try to load a VSP file created in an earlier edition of Video Studio into X8 (the trial version), the system thinks for a few seconds and presents an empty file. I did not have this problem with X7. Has this been a problem before?

Thanks, Ken. I do see that the X8 closing nag screen is different (it doesn't have the 'Already puchased' button), and I appreciate the wisdom of installing a clean version of the paid product. I love Paintshop Pro X7, and VideoStudio X8 seems to have improved greatly over my decrepit version 11. The only thing that's holding me back from a purchase is my concern that I would need to use one of those blank panels to enter the serial number of the purchased program.

Yes, that is correct regarding the video for activating the trial version of X7. But the serial number used to activate it is the number you receive when you buy the program, not a serial number that comes with the trial version.

I assume that the same applies to X8... but unfortunately Corel changed so much about the trial version this time round that registration could be just another thing they screwed up! So I can understand your frustration...

Maybe the page is different when viewed from Australia. Almost the first words are:

VideoStudio® Pro X8
Help with Downloading
Activate Trial Version - Video

Further down the page, there's a video showing the process to 'Activate your trial version of VideoStudio® Pro X7'. This may be the link to it. The process uses the windows that won't work for me, and seems to convert the trial version to the paid version.

If I can't run the trial version, I have no confidence that the paid version would work for me.

You may be right—but this page explicitly refers to registering the trial version.


Sorry, but I can't seem to find that on that page. It refers to activating the trial version -- but that usually means making it the full version, and as Brian said above, we recommend people don't follow that route but instead totally uninstall the trial version and download the full version for separate installation.

And the videos on that page only refer to installation of the full download and boxed versions, not the trial version...

Since the trial version won't even start normally on my computer, I'm unwilling to pay money to find out that the purchased version uses the same sort of windows/panels that don't work on my computer. The other posts in this thread seem to get the same problem with the purchased version (eg, here).

I do appreciate your efforts to help me.

Are these raw camera files and not output from GoPro Studio? Are you working with Protune turned on?

I'm only have X8, so this may not be useful info, but I've tried exporting from a number of different GoPro formats from my Hero 3+ and I don't get that export error.

Hi Guys

Bit of an update.

Well first issue was that my computer wasn't recognising my gopro hero 4 which I thought might have been part of the issue.
Still not resolved btw
It recognises my hero3 no problems no issues.

Also, after lots and lots of tests, it seem that I can render anything up until 1280 x 720 in anything up to 120 fps
Any frame size above that is when my issues start.

I tried both my hero 3 and 4 and the issue is across all setting on both cameras above 1280 x 720.

One thing I haven't tried is files from a different camera all together.

Will be my next test.

Any more info would be much appreciated

Cheers

Mick

Trial versions do not have serial numbers - you will not have a serial number for a trial

If/When you make a purchase you will need to completely remove the trial version - it has several functions removed or disabled - then download the complete programme which will come with a serial number which you will be able to register either through the guide or direct online - the fact that you appear not to be able to register the trial version - despite receiving several emails telling you that it is registered - has no relevance at all to a purchased copy.

VideoStudio • Re: Video Studio X8 working much slower than expected

Mon, 04/27/2015 - 05:45
I've checked, the default hardware acceleration options were the same in X8 and X5 - they were enabled only for editing, not for file conversion. So the reason for X5 being faster is not hardware acceleration.
So is there anybody else who can compare the file conversion speed of X8 with any older version? (Specifically for creating MP4 files because that is the case where I observed a large difference in the conversion speed).

Sort of, yes. I discovered by accident that it has associated itself with my old .VSP files, so that when I double-click on them, VS X8 opens (bypassing the problematic registration window). No serial number is listed in the Help/About box, so that doesn't help me with registration.

Of course, it will stop working once the trial period expires, and I'll have no way to register a purchase unless this problem can be solved.

I dare say that it would work fine on a clean installation of Windows, but I'm not in a position to do that. I suspect that, if VS 11 had uninstalled itself completely, this problem wouldn't be occurring. (But I could be wrong about that.)

If you're right, it might come good soon. I was hoping to buy it before the current 15% off offer expires on 27 April.

Hi Ken

Yes this is correct.
Will complete successfully and play back from the file in the target folder but if have VS open and click on the same file in the library, VS crashes.
I cant even highlight the thunbnail to delete it.

Original file:

File: Mp4
Frame width: 1920
Frame height: 1080
Data rate: 29005kbps
Total bitrate: 29130kbps
Frame rate: 50 fps


Rendered file:

File: AVCHD Video (.m2t)
Frame width: 1920
Frame height: 1080
Data rate: 22005kbps
Total bitrate: 22389kbps
Frame rate: 50 fps

Error message says:

This program has encountered an unspecific error and has stopped functioning.
Please contact Corel Support and send the dump file for analysis.
C:\User\michael\AppData\Local\Temp\vstudio_16.0.0.106_20150427_18439.DMP

Now I haven't sent this through to Corel Support as yet
I was hoping someone here had come across this before and had an easy solution.

For what its worth, I have un-installed and re-installed VS already, thinking in might resolve the issue
But, to no avail

Cheers

Mick

Can you use the programme apart from accessing the Corel guide - some people find that that does not populate until a couple of days after you use the programme

VideoStudio • Re: Project properties issue

Mon, 04/27/2015 - 03:32
Sorry Guys

I have VS x 6 ultimate full version.
I can output to Same as First Clip which is mp4 but cant set the project properties to my desired setting other than in avi

I don't convert to avi before VS
I would much rather keep it as mp4 through the whole process if I could

Cheers

Mick

Thanks for the reply, Brian! When I try that, the web site asks me for the product's serial number. Since I'm only running the trial version so far, I don't have any paperwork with the serial number, and because I can't start the program, I can't see its serial number in the help menu. It's a chicken-or-the-egg.

I'm scared to buy the program just to get a serial number in case I still can't enter it into the program due to the blank window.

I should also mention that I receive a 'thank you for registering' email from Corel whenever I go past the panel where you enter your email address. I've got 38 such emails now. Despite that, the next panel never loads and the web site doesn't indicate any registration (for the trial version or any other).

Since you already have PaintShop then you have an account on the Corel website - have you tried logging in to that and choosing "Register a New Product "

Movie Factory 7 -- which is the "current" versions -- is even older than 2011. I don't have it on this computer, but from memory, it contains the same templates as are used in VS X7 and X8 (and X6 and X5!!)

Further to my previous, if I click 'Register' without entering an email address, the window (which would otherwise go blank) loads the following page:



(This is a composite image, pasted together using Paintshop Pro X7—which works perfectly.)

This page really looks defunct. If anyone knows where the VS X8 installer might be picking it up from, I might be able to find and remove the offending vestige from my computer.
