VideoStudio • Re: foreign language accents

This can usually be achieved by copying using Ctrl+C from any programme on your computer which can display Spanish characters and then pasting using Ctrl+V into the VideoStudio preview window - AFTER you have "double clicked to add title"

you can copy a sentence or more at a time.

OK, but the problem is that I don't have the files to import manually. The files I found are .grf files (Boris format) that presumably create the effect, not the .vpt nor .vps files (nor any reference to them in the .ini file). I searched the entire Corel and Boris installations and Application Data folders.

If you see a folder in the VSPFolder that does not show in the library use the Import a project templates option, the open folder icon at the top of the library to import a “vpt” file, from the VSPT Templates folder.

(It's Graffiti version 6 and the files are all dated from 2011.) My VSPTemplate folder is completely empty (though the IP tab has the default Corel IP templates) and I don't have any .vsp or .vst files on my system other that those that correspond to those Corel templates (and a handful of my own .vsp files). So doing anything to the library I don't think would help since the files are not there to start with (inside or outside the library).

I did a repair installation of Boris via Windows "Add Programs" which didn't restore the files, but it's possible it's in a separate part of the Ultimate Bonus installer than just copies various files. Corel support is looking into sending me the files. My only other guess is that the 32-bit 3Bonus installer might have inadvertently omitted these files, but the 64-bit one not, which could explain why some of you seem to have had them properly installed (asik1 seems to have a 32-bit system but doesn't remember where his Graffiti templates came from--X7 or X8). Since the 3Bonus installation worked glitch-free and all the other Bonus content seem properly installed, it seems a long shot that it discriminated just against the Graffiti templates, but if Corel doesn't support doesn't come through with the templates, it may be worth a try.

VideoStudio • VideoStudio X8 Pro Playback Problems

Tue, 03/17/2015 - 04:05
Hello,
I have some recorded footage of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (2010) recorded with Bandicam. You can see the information here: http://prntscr.com/6htn2n
As you can see, the playback image is highly distorted, and the footage does not look like this while previewing outside of VSX8, and also - while playing the 'clip' inside of VideoStudio, it looks completely normal. It's only when I play it from the project that it looks that way. Not only does the video look like that, it also freezes and stutters. And after 10-20 seconds, all I get is a still frame.
Let me know if you need any more information, as I will happily provide it.

Thankyou,
Lachlan

Hi Guys

The VSPTemplates folder is also used by X7 and maybe X6.
Any template folder within the VSPT should populate the library.

It is possible that X8 only provided 12, the extra 4 being provided by X7
Although I doubt that as the Graffiti is the same version. I think,

If you see a folder in the VSPFolder that does not show in the library use the Import a project templates option, the open folder icon at the top of the library to import a “vpt” file, from the VSPT Templates folder.

Otherwise backup your library
Reset the program
Import the library.
Is worth a try?

If that don’t work Re-Install the Ultimate Bonus file.

I would use one of the masks in the "Frame" library and put that in yet a fifth overlay track so that only the middle bit showed through

If you cannot find a frame there exactly to your own purposes then use an image manipulation programme to make your own - it's just a .png with transparency.

The attached zip file is one I made but it has a circular cut-out but you can make them any shape you want

download it - unzip it - and put the resultant .png in a fifth overlay set it to fit the screen and set it's length to whatever you want

transparant circle.zip


this is a "just for fun" one to show what can be done

flower cutout.zip

I think it's impossible in X7. you have to render, reload and crop.
In X8 it's possible, all is needed is reloading the VSP file as flat project and apply the FX

tanguero, you have to do it manually.
In instant projects add new folder Graffiti, into that import the projects. They are the VPT files you found as same VSP Boris names "dirctories".

The file that governs Instant projects is UserTemplateStyle.ini in the
....\Roaming\Ulead Systems\Corel VideoStudio Pro\18.0\en-US\UserTemplateStyle_Classic\ folder

VideoStudio • Filters on Multiple Overlays

Mon, 03/16/2015 - 18:31
Very new to VideoStudio, working with X7. My project involves 4 videos playing at one time, and the only way i can find to do this is by having 4 different overlays and no main track... I have my 4 videos as overlays and can play them all at once, but i want to crop the entire screen overall so that the only visible part that is not blacked out is a small area where the four corners meet. How can I put a "master filter" over the whole project?

I for one certainly have them, but I have no suggestion as to how you might get them. In all the circumstances, and against the background of your many recent posts, I am totally loath to suggest reinstalling the Bonus features again...

If I do a search, I find filenames that match your templates in C:\Program Files\Boris FX, Inc\Keyframe Libraries 6\Graffiti 6 Keyframe Library but with a .grf extension (which is registered in Windows as a "Boris.RED" file type (but without a program registered that is capable of opening it). But of course it's the .vsp templates that I'm looking for (which perhaps do not much more than invoke the corresponding effect, but it would still be nice to have). I'd have noticed if there were a hiccup during the installation process, but there was none.

By the way, I have all the categories within "Instant Project" that you show, except Graffiti and Instant Project (my General and Custom and empty, but the others have various templates).

Anyone else can confirm the absence or presence of these Graffiti Instant Project templates in a recent X8 Ultimate installation (not leftover from X7)? And how would I get them?

(P.S. asik1, my "New Age > Inspirational > Monastery" was just a joke for your 1 hour of blank "music"!)

Mon, 03/16/2015 - 12:49
I don't have Fraps but does it have a setting which allows you to record at 60 fps? That would obviously be better than VS simply playing every existing frame twice to go from 30 to 60 fps.

VideoStudio • Re: Upgrade on a JVC Everio GZ330 and Canon Vixia R300

Mon, 03/16/2015 - 11:49
...one of the reasons for me not even looking at them. Still 1080p cameras. Bigger sensor and more megapixels, and they do cost less than what I am looking at. They are listed as t6s and t6i (760D and 750D to non North Americans). If you plan on staying in HD and not go 4K, and would like a DSLR type video/still camera these are viable alternatives.
But NAB is right around the corner. Once I see where the rumored Canon 4K camera stands, then I will decide on what to get. Spring is near where I live, so I want to know the camera before going out in the world....

search for Cylinder Spin.VSP or Star Wars.VSP

* I do have 16, but in X8 I C only 12... I need to reload them.

I don't have New Age > Inspirational > Monastery??
I referred to a 5.7Mb wav file.

Can you give me the names of your 12 files (or some of them at least) so I can search for them on my system?

Current framerate is 30FPS, hoping to boost up to 60FPS, or even slightly lower.
Type of video is gameplay footage from one of the early Tomb Raider games, so nothing overly fast.
