When you put the mouse over a video thumbnail in the library, play that video in the thumbnail view. This would be similar to how transitions play in the library when you put the mouse over them (assuming you have Media Library Animations turned off in your preferences).

jpw, this is exactly what I meant in my answer, so you better use this mask.
place it in \Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X7\Samples\Image
And in the overlay menu select mask , add the image and follow VS instructions.

ARRRrrgh! Sometimes it's the simple things that get you! Well, glad it was simple! _ I was thinking I would have to do a reinstall!
Thanks for replying, very much appreciate your help!

Until next time

VideoStudio • Re: 60FPS Recording on Corel Screen Capture

Fri, 01/30/2015 - 17:20
What would you recommend for me to do? I'm trying to record Minecraft where I get 150 FPS while recording so I was hoping for 60 FPS recording, but 30 FPS looks chunky. I'll take anything that looks the best. I'd like it at 1080p. Thanks again

I don't know of any way to change that setting -- or indeed the format, which seems fixed at .wmv... However, I would be happy to learn if anyone else has found a way.

But capturing at 30 fps and later upscaling that to 60 fps will serve little purpose. In the first place you can't make a video better by just changing the frame rate. But more importantly, upscaling is done by simply repeating each frame. This could produce rather jerky output, particularly if fast action is involved in the video...

VideoStudio • 60FPS Recording on Corel Screen Capture

Fri, 01/30/2015 - 16:41
I recently purchased Corel VideoStudio X7 Ultimate. I turned on the Screen Capture and noticed 60FPS wasn't an option for recording. Is there anyway to make 60FPS possible on it because I am sure I've seen someone record with 60FPS with that program. If not, what happens when I export it to 60FPS? Is it upscaled or is it then same thing? Thanks for your time

Yes it's frightening when you start but persevere and it will come right PLUS you can always ask on this Forum - we all had to start somewhere.
I have found with VideoStudio that it is always worth a try. With VS you can't mess up the original video files and, if what you try doesn't work, you can go back and try something else.

Thanks Terfyn, I'm amazed how much these programs do. I'm finding the only limiting factor is my imagination in making interesting movies. Yes, I make lots of backups of files I can't replace on different media and store them away. Looking at all the great tutorials Corel has in the Discovery Center.

if you open another overlay track and put your video in that it and take the tick out of the 'fill colour' box when cropping then when you return to the editing screen the image will be distorted - but simply use the yellow boxes to pull the image back to the correct width - then it will overlay the previous black fill

What I'm attempting to do can be found in the youtube video in the first post. After playing with this for a while I think I see where the issue is and I'm not sure there is a solution.

I'm trying to take two different videos and compare them with a split screen down the middle of the screen. Since the content is almost identical between the two videos there can be a seam between the resulting video, but one half of the screen is from one video and the other will have the other. So if I follow the steps to do a crop I can indeed complete the crop on just 50% of one video, HOWEVER, to keep the video from becoming skewed you have to use the FILL COLOR. So basically the crop is accurate and precise, but the fill color gets priority on the resulting video so no matter what video I put in overlays they won't be seen. You can of course uncheck fill color, which will give you the freedom to have half of the video exposed so that the overlay can be seen through it, BUT you have to adjust the size of the skewed window to make it the proper aspect ratio. This is what I don't like because you have no idea if it is accurate. I wish when you unchecked fill color it would just leave the image alone instead of filling the screen.

VideoStudio • Re: Writing Panasonic DVD-RAM

Fri, 01/30/2015 - 13:38
That's a good point. Together with the reference to archiving, I am wondering if we fully understand what is going on. If the main point is in fact archiving the edited video, then I would have thought it would be possible to output an AVCHD video of it and simply use Windows to copy the file to a DVD-RAM disc for archiving purposes. This would probably/possibly not play directly in a Blu-Ray player (though he could at least give it a go with the Panny he uses). But it would be possible at some time in the future to copy the archived footage back to a computer for further work and output on some other medium.

However, if he wants the footage in an immediately playable format, and this is also an AVCHD hybrid disc format, then I would tend to agree with you that a DVD-RAM disc is not the target for this format -- only a 'standard' DVD, whether it be RW or just R...

Those of you with the GH4 might be interested in the fact that they have just issued a firmware update which amongst other things adds 25/30P native filming instead of the 'old' 50/60P full HD video, which as we know has caused some people problems. See http://www.redsharknews.com/production/ ... 1-74803325

I am not at all sure what you are doing - but it sounds nothing like using the crop filter to me

with your video in the timeline in an OVERLAY track open the FX panel and drag the 'Crop' filter from the panel down on top of the video

Now open the 'Options' panel by clicking on the blue 'Options' button above the right end of the timeline

When the panel opens click on "Customise Filter" and a new window will open where you set the cropping size (by changing numbers) and the position by sliding the centre cross around - set what you want

now when you go back to the editing screen you can move the image in the preview window by clicking on the video in the timeline and then using your cursor to move the image where you want it

see what you make of the following two images. The first is the "Customise Filter" Window - the second is the main screen with the video cropped and moved to the right edge.

Actually, the more I start to look at the resulting video the more I don't like this process. I'm OK with sort of eye-balling the crop itself because I don't think there is way to simply tell the crop to do so accurately for one half of the screen. But what I really don't like is when you have to apply the crop on the main editing screen. By default I think it shows up in a centered window. You could then anchor it anywhere you want like on the left of the frame. Then you can stretch the screen to the top and the bottom to fill the overall video height. I'm OK with everything right up to this point because then you need to stretch the video horizontally. But you are basically eye-balling where you think it looks right. I've got to believe there is some kind of way of doing this to ensure the aspect ratio is left as it should be. Any thoughts?

This video pretty much got me there. The seams between the two videos aren't perfect, but come to think of it that would be very difficult to accomplish because I am actually comparing two cameras that have created two completely different videos. I can get the timing very close, but again, because of the very slightly different camera angles the seam between the two videos isn't perfect.

Warning: The way this person describes the video is a little immature, but hey, he got me there so I should thank him.

I think “TPdart” wants to burn a hybrid HD DVD-RAM disc.

Quote - “Most are HD so need the 4.7gb on the DVD RAM”

Not sure if this has ever been possible though.

gonna search for that

removing the background also has to be the same way right? export each image and remove the background?
