VideoStudio • Re: Capturing DVD's with multiple audio tracks

Sat, 07/12/2014 - 15:02
Wow,
That's unfortunate, seems like an obvious flaw for VideoStudio. People put commentary tracks on all kinds of things these days, even 3 minute promotional clips. And yes I realize that VideoStudio does not work with copy-protected discs, that's not an issue.
Thanks for the advice.

VideoStudio • Re: What file format exporting AVCHD back to Sony HDR-SR12E

Sat, 07/12/2014 - 04:23
FYI, on the matter of copying a rendered file back to the camera - some manufacturer's don't allow it. Mainly, because of the way they store their captured images, and quite possibly influenced by the format used for the storage device. I suspect, their designers never imagined a case where a user might want to do that (ignoring the fact that a camera is a superb mobile picture screen system, where for example you might want to show something off to a friend over coffee in the local mall).

And in that sense, a camcorder is no different from a still camera.

I recently tried to do just this with a Canon sx280hs still camera (capable of taking movies) - copy a selection of images taken on that camera (say, the best 100 from nearly 1000) back to the camera, and later show them to a friend. No way would the camera permit import - connected to a PC as an attached folder, using explorer, the explorer copy ran and there was nothing on the camera memory card. Removing the card to the computer and doing the same thing, then re-inserting the card in the camera - no data recognised by the camera. Probably because in those ancilliary files stored in the camera folder tree is an image index. And of course you would need to know just how and where that index was constructed. If it's not in the index, forget it. Which ultimately is what I did - did not use the Canon camera, but an e-reader instead. Made mental note that Canon, for all its alleged competence in cameras, demonstrated poor skill in this camera.

Sat, 07/12/2014 - 03:43
Started VideoStudio Pro X7 yesterday, 7/11 here in Thailand, perhaps 7/10 in the states. Was informed that Service Pack 1 was available and offered to install. List of fixes sounded good, so I thought "Sure... Why not?"

After installing, had lots of problems with rendering a video comprised mostly of MP4 video clips shot with a Sony pocket camera. Removing certain clips would allow it to progress further, so my first thought was that maybe there was something wrong with the input clip.

But just rebooted into Windows 7 64-bit, and ran the same VSP file. Rendered the whole thing just fine. Looks like I'll be uninstalling and re-installing Pro X7 under 32-bit Windows 7, which is where the service pack was installed.

Grr? A bad patch that's been removed from the US website probably shouldn't be offered for installation to users in other countries either. A bad patch is a bad patch.

VideoStudio • Re: Corel Video Studio Pro X4 No Audio on .avi files 4/30/14

Hi
Video studio automatically saves the trimmed video to the “working folder”
Taking a “Snapshot” also saves to the working folder.

Other options from Share may allow you to select a “save location”

The Working folder is also known as the Capture folder.
The Working folders location can be changed to any folder on the hard drive via F6 Preferences.
I usually allocate a working folder for each of my projects, that way all clips used in a particular project are saved to the same folder.

Time elapsed clock….well no there is no clock, it may be useful whether the program can calculate that accurately given the complexity of project is difficult to say.
Add your comments to the VideoStudio Wishlist for Version X8

During rendering if you click the windows toolbar button to show desktop that should allow you to access other programs, however doing so will slow the render times.

You say “Please tell me I'm not seeing something while I'm rendering?

Certainly you should not use Task Manager to close the program, the progress bar shows (Press ESC to abort)

VideoStudio • Re: garbled video output

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 20:04
Thanks for your reply.

The source was a series of TIF images that I brought in via capture/stop motion/import. This created a UISX file which I inserted to the video track, and then I cut this clip into pieces, and interspersed still images in order o create pauses in the video. There was also a soundtrack and an overlay track.

I am not certain, but it is quite possible that I installed or uninstalled programs while I was working on the file (or at least in between the time when I created the file and the time when I exported the video).

I recreated the video in question using the same TIF files, and managed to successfully export a video. I did not use the same UISX file.

Are there particular things I should avoid doing while editing a file?

Thanks!

VideoStudio • Re: Corel VSX7 App crash module ntdll.dll

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 15:14

...only addressed by members


This was because this is a user-to-user forum. We may use the Corel servers, but none of us here is a Corel employee, and Corel executives very seldom visit us. We are all users like you who volunteer their time to try to help out others.

As such we have no real idea what those App Crash module messages really mean. That being said, I note that yours refers to VS X7 version 17.0.0.249. Have you applied Service Pack 1 to the program? That would give you version number 17.1.0.22.

Moreover, the Name of the Module with Errors is NTDLL.DLL. A Google search using that as the parameter reveals many people getting the same problem with a wide variety of programs. So it appears that VS is not the culprit but Windows... But you would need to do your own Google search to see which possible solution might work for you.

VideoStudio • Re: VSPX7 vs. Pluraleyes

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 15:05
I thought Pluraleyes was -- at the moment at least -- strictly for Macs, though there is apparently a PC-compatible version coming. It is also a stand-alone program, though I understand there may be a plug-in of it for Final Cut Pro (not surprisingly, since it is a Mac product). I know syncing of multi-camera/audio video would be a major advance for some users, but at the moment, no, Pluraleyes does not AFAIK interface with VS.

VideoStudio • Corel VSX7 App crash module ntdll.dll

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 14:07
Hello, I decided to start a new topic, even though some discussion has been made on application crashes but somewhat mixed with other topics, and only addressed by members.

After being working with VSX7, and having installed SP1, the following error message repeatedly appears when rendering DVD format. I haven't changed video/images source. It started some time after having installed SP1.

I'm sorry to transcribe the error message in Spanish:

Firma con problemas:

I have already uninstalled VSX7 and SP1, and reinstalling VSX7 only didn't fix the problem.

I hope you can help.

Thank you very much.

VideoStudio • Re: How to enable hardware Encoding acceleration

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 11:58
This is starting to bother me. Nvidia and AMD/ATI both supposedly offer hardware acceleration through either CUDA or OpenCL. Yes, in the editing preferences my acceleration options aren't greyed out, but whether they're enabled or not doesn't make any difference in how fast a video renders. Isn't that what hardware acceleration is supposed to do?

In Catalyst Control Center there's an accelerated video conversion setting under Video, but that doesn't seem to do anything.

I found some other threads discussing these things, but I can't find a definitive answer to "Can my AMD 6870 can accelerate video rendering and how to enable it through both the VS software and AMD software on my computer". I can check the boxes in VS edit settings, but nothing changes. It's like my video card software isn't configured correctly.

Limiting factor in your case is probably the HDD. "Green" drives take less power but they are slower. CPU has to wait for the files to be written and read. More RAM always help, because of the caching. There is no free lunch.
Open "Resource Monitor" and you will see.


I've found that using a faster hard drive will only increase video scrubbing speed. When going from the WD Green to my SSD, my projects render at the same speed. The preview project and when I scroll through it is what sees the big difference. I deal with giant lossless AVI files from Dxtory, it's too bad I don't have enough space on my SSD to do my work there routinely. My i5 CPU usage is pretty much 90%+ when rendering.

You can monitor the usage with GPU-Z.

Rendering clips.
There is an option to Save Trimmed Video, select the clip in the timeline and go to File – Save trimmed video , this should render the selected clip to a new version using the clips properties.


When I save trimmed video is saves it automatically into a default user Video Studio folder on the local disc. I see no option to change the save directory or for the individual save, is there something I'm missing? I don't like having to save stuff to my small SSD, even temporarily, when I have a 1TB and 3 TB HD.



Another thing I'd like to bring up is that there is no elapsed time clock keeping track of how long it's taken to render a video. There's only a % complete progress bar. With VS x4 I'm not able to minimize the window once rendering is started until it's complete unless I kill the program in task manager. I can ignore not being able to minimize the window while working, but no elapsed time seems like a major oversight for the sake of testing speed. Please tell me I'm not seeing something while I'm rendering?

Hi
Just to add
To select project playback click the word “Project” adjacent to the play button

Also clicking the top of the timeline, (Mouse icon changes to a mouse) along the time rule will set the curser and play from that point

Hi

Regarding the “Visual C++ message”

On the last page if you were to select “Create a Bluray Folder” and not “Create Disc” the process should complete saving the disc data to a BDMV folder on your hard drive.

If that completes ok then the error is probably related to the actual burning of the disc and your BD burner or Discs????

At least you will know that VS is completing the process

Hi

I don’t have any other suggestions, if you are not willing to reset the program or re-install then we are in limbo. I do understand that you are in the middle of a project and that you do not wish to make things worse.
For piece of mind you may be best to wait till you have completed the project.

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

You can use the Smart Package process to save/backup your project.

You can use Settings - Library Manager to export your library, then Import Library at a later date.
However the program may not allow you to use the Import Library option, you do run the risk of loosing your libraries content.
That would not affect your projects as library clips are not associated with the library.
You would have to re-load your library ages again.

If you have two different sound clips in two separate sound tracks then both will play at the same time PROVIDING you select to play in 'Project' mode - if you are in 'clip' mode only the selected clip will play.
