Hmmm... I don't have USB 3 ports on any of my computers, unfortunately, yet I have 3 of those external USB 3 drives, and so they are connected to my USB 2 ports. And in fact, I use one of them almost exclusive, as you suggest, as my editing external hard drive -- containing both the video clips and the VSP project file. And sure, a project will take possibly a little more time to open from that drive. Most of my projects are between 15 and 25 minutes long, and rarely longer. But even so, they only take 2 to 3 minutes to open from the external hard drive, while they take around a minute or so to open if they are all on my C:\ drive or other internal drive. Certainly nothing in the order of the 20 minutes you are suffering -- though you don't say how long your projects are...

I also don't recall having the problem you describe with scrubbing along the timeline. It might have happened, but I just don't recall it, or rather, don't recall getting annoyed if it happened...

Welcome to the forums!

Can you clarify, though, exactly how you saved the edited work with a file name? With the project in the timeline, did you go to File > Save or something else? And when you say you go back to the folders, which folders are you talking about? And is the program open when you "click the file to import", are you going to File > Open Project or doing something else?

I probably can do that with another program (Nero?) but not with Studio I think.

Why should I use another programm for someting that worked many, many thimes with Studio on a brilliant way.
I want to understand why this failure/error comes up.

VideoStudio • X7 help saving edited work where I left off

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 16:38
I would like to return to unfinished edit material so I can continue where I left off. When I save the edited work with a file name, I later go back to folders and clik the file name to import, but the work that I did is not there. How do I recall the work that I started and so I may continue where I left off?

Currently using USB 3.0 ports with USB 3.0 devices, when synchronizing files they seem to top out at about 110 MBS with the normal maximum being at about 80-90 MBS, even with these CVS takes about 15-20 mins to load my current project from the portable USB 3.0 drive, and about 3-5 mins when all the files are on the machine.

Another really noticeable delay using the external HDD is when moving the timeline along, as the program reads the files to update the clips showing in the timeline, the worst thing is to stop moving the cursor before the editing point is reached, as once stopped it becomes deactivated until the visible part of the timeline has been updated, so the trick is to keep the cursor moving! But none of this is a problem when working from the internal HDD, it's really a breeze!

If you can make an mpeg file, can you then use the mpeg file to make your dvd?
This is the preferred route for most people.

Nowadays with the upsurge in use of powerful laptops and the proliferation of relatively cheap 1-2TB portable HDDs, there's a tendency to pair these up, using portable HDDs for backup or project file storage, to avoid quickly filling up the inbuilt HDD; especially whilst working with large video files which easily requires upwards of 140GB for just 15mins of rendered film.

However there is a catch, which can cause frustration whilst using video editors such as CVS, where software is often blamed for jittery previews, slow timeline loading, freezing, slow rendering, unresponsiveness etc. These portable USB-connected HDDs just cannot keep pace with the machine-based software processing speed, resulting in long delays and unresponsiveness, as the software struggles to read these large external-based files.

A dramatic increase in performance (x5 ?) of the software can easily be achieved by making a working copy of the project (including all AV files) on the machine itself, so the software does not have to read/write to/from external sources and then synchronising to the external portable HDD for backup at the end of each session. It's surprising just how much difference that makes to using the software, making it a pleasure to use, rather than having to sit there cursing it!

VideoStudio • Unknown Error - At Share - DVD, StudioProX5

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 14:42
Hi there,

After a lot of briljant projects I had create another one.
Sadly I stucked with an error.

The error occur when I selected "Share" and than "Creating Disc" DVD or Bluray.
Both give the same error. (its in Dutch below, I made my own translation)

Quote: "Een onbekende fout deed zich voor in dit programma waardoor het stopte.
Neem contact op met Corel Technische Ondersteuning en stuur het dumpbestand ter analyse.
C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Temp\vstudio_15.2.0.10_20140714_213346.DMP"

Translation: A unknown error occurs, this is why the program stops.
Contact Corel Technical Support and send them the dumpfile.

The timeline has nothing special. MTS-files and some text.
Creating a MPEG file of it works fine. The error occurs only by creating a disc.

Is anyone of you fammiliar with this kind of error. Searching on the internet learned me that Quicktime could have bad influences on it. So I deleted it and restart the computer. Nothing changed.
Run CC-cleaner on the PC.
I checked on the last updates of Windows and VideoStudio but no updates where available.

System: Windows Vista, 32 bit, program: video Studio Prox5 Ultimate

Hope someone can help or give some suggestions what to do.
(my warrantee has already gone, so I cannot contact Corel about this issue).

VideoStudio • Re: VideoStudio Wishlist for Version X8

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 12:15
I'd like to see more functionality around chapter creation,
1. first of all ability to transfer *named* chapter points from time line to the output mp4 files or any format which supports chapter streams/metadata.
2. transfer chapter names over to dvd/blue ray editor. BTW, in blue/ray, dvd editor chapter names should be editable at chapter line, not just in menus.
2. easy naming chapters at timeline, not just in the chapter manager.
3. create a text file in some format with chapter list (times and names).

About formats, would be nice to add generation fo *mkv* containers.

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 12:14
Hi

Have you tried using the 4K templates, they do seem to create a better quality than the standard 1920 Mpeg4
Yep they should be better as the frame size is greater with an increased data rate, I used 40000kbps, and as expected the file size was larger about 3 times at 32 Mb.

I did notice I was only allowed to choose 29.97 fps not 30 as with the 1920 template. Don’t know why that should be.?

Anyway the quality seems better at least in my eyes.

Sometimes these things just happen, it's computing
So, as you could make a proper file by redoing it, we just put this down to one of those things and not worry about it, as we have99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of NOT finding the cause.

If something goes wrong, restart pc, restart programme, restart project and if all is good, ok.
If not, we need to look in more detail.
Removing programmes can cause problems, especially if they are video/audio related as they may remove codecs etc that you need to use.

Put the video in the main timeline (or one of the overlay tracks), and put the audio into one of the audio tracks (Music or Voice). Then go to Share and choose an output format. If you want to retain the original properties of the video file in the new output file, then make sure -- in Preferences > General -- that the box beside "Show message when inserting first video clip" is ticked. Then when you start your project and insert the video, you should receive a message asking if you want the Project Properties to match those of the clip. Click OK. Then when you have finished editing, you can go to Share > Same as Project Properties or Share > Same As First Clip. This works quite well with high definition video if you have VS X7, but with X6 and earlier, it mainly only works with standard definition video and only one or two high def formats.
