VideoStudio • Re: Selective brightness

Yeah, got it. The "Show Mask" drop down menu is key. By selecting Highlights in this menu, I see all the areas concerned in the whole frame. By selecting, "None" you must ensure the checkbox for "Enable" is ticked to order to influence the masked area in the secondary controls.

This is a useful FX

I'm sorry I need to master it myself,
Take a look at this

(the interface is different but all is there)

OK, I think I got it.
1- the mask work only for the secondary
2) By selecting MASK shape you define the area to be or not to be affected (invert)
3) than select NONE and tweak the secondary control as needed.

VideoStudio • Trouble Burning Discs

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 08:18
Hi,

I am a new VideoStudio user. I tried to burn a series of movies onto a disc using the DVD format. When I went to play the second movie the sound cut out during that movie and the third (last) movie on the disc. The first movie was made on Windows Movie Maker in regular format and the other two movies were made on Windows Movie Maker in high definition. I even tried burning the disc in the high def format but it wouldn't play on my DVD player.

What can I do to fix this? The movies play fine on youtube and other sharing sites. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
Megan

Nice suggestion. I've just had a go at Colourfast and found the Secondary adjustments useful whereby I used the Shadows options to enhance the darker areas.

On a trial run with the mask option, I got the shape ok but everything inside it was an inverted colour. The checkbox for invert seemed to then invert colour for the outside of the mask. So how do I influence colour within the mask. (looked at the help box but couldn't figure it out)

As this is .MOV's related I'll immediately put the blame on QuickTime installation

No. Seems no point to that - the UI display on the laptop displays everything it is supposed to. Bastardising the computer to compensate for the misdemeanors of the wall display is an odd approach, altho re-sizing the application UI approach outlined by Brian and implemented goes pretty much to do that, just only affects the application in use and easily reverted.

What I was after was the proper operation of the HDMI interface on this wall screen - it should not be doing what it is.

VideoStudio • An X7 file format bug

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 06:03
I've stumbled across what looks like a bug in X7 ultimate when processing a project with .mov clips in the timeline. The details follow.

A project was created with a sequence about 12 .mov clips. Nothing special in it - no music, text or transitions, just the basis of an outline of the issues recording thru windows.

Loaded in X7 64bit on my HP laptop, the 1st clip in the sequence played to the end and then the whole application failed; no error or other messages, just an instant reversion to the desktop presentation. Very repeatable. Changing the filetype to .mpg and repeating just produced an file format error when the play button was pressed. So the type was reverted to the original. The original photographer can burn a disk of these using X3, so further investigation seemed merited.

Later and at leisure I tested just the first 2 clips on VS X6, running in x86 mode on both a desktop and the same laptop, and on X7 running in x86 mode on the desktop and in x64 mode on the laptop. The results were:
X6: laptop x86 mode - successful (played both clips Ok and especially a smooth change from the 1st clip to the 2nd); desktop x86 mode - successful 9same result as for laptop.
X7: laptop x64 mode - played 1st clip then application failed catastrophically at change to 2nd clip; desktop x86 mode - played 1st clip then application failed at change to 2nd clip.

I trapped the file properties of both clips - apart from a small variation in duration and thus file size, these were identical. I have only added the the details of the clip that seemed to initiate the X7 failure, here:
VS X7 clip fail properties.jpg

Has anyone else encountered this sort of failure? is there a fix or patch?

What you need to do is match the settings on your display resolution on the laptop so that all of the screen can be seen on the tv.


Have you tried changing the display settings on the laptop?

VideoStudio • How do I highlight a moving object?

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 18:18
I have a video of a chipmunk sneaking around in my tomato patch taking bites out of my tomatoes. I want to highlight where he is so the viewer can follow him better by putting a little halo or circle or something around him as he wanders about how do I do this in Video Studio 6?

Thanks in advance!

Coincidentally, about a year ago, I too received that strange "waterfall" error message. I found that it was associated with my installation of GoPro Studio (which I had not been able to get to work properly with my Hero 3 footage). GoPro itself recommends the following, which certainly worked in my case (and now GoPro Studio also works, though I continue to use VS mainly for editing my Hero 3 video):


Error: 'No DLLS were Found in the Waterfall Procedure' Occurs After Installing GoPro Studio

In some cases after installing GoPro Studio, other applications may report an error that states: "Error at loading if ippSP library - No DLLS were Found in the Waterfall procedure".
If this occurs the solution is to browse to: C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and then remove these files:
ippcore-6.1
ippj-6.1
ippjw7-6 .. 1
IPPS-6.1
ippvc-6.1

Well, I've used Belarc, but exactly what it's telling me I couldn't say!

Interestingly, the Corel Knowledge is about OMP Error # 15 - Initializing libguide40.dll, but found libiomp5md.dll already initialized, but in fact it is the libguide that is already initialised. Whether that makes any difference to the proposed solution I couldn't say.

It looked like a good solution and I tried it for the Windows 7 solution, but when I went back to Corel X6 and tried multiple pan/zoom it told me "no .dll's found in waterfall procedure".
So thank you for the efforts but I am still lost

Hi

I do not own X3, (video Studio 13)

But I think it may be your Wav files that’s causing the issues, I assume you are creating the wav files, do you use the default settings or change them to your liking?

If you were to use Wav files from another source, do they play ok, you say it does not affect all wav files, is that correct?

How large are the Wav files, you should be able to e-mail.
If you agree to share your e-mail address with me I will e-mail you using your forum account mail address.
Then you can reply attaching a problem Wav file, it may be best to also send a working wav file?

Let me know…..

The Audio file on the side are part of the library, inserting clips here allows for a quick access allowing you to add to timeline from library.

no cancel that. when i re opened my work the audio would not play and VSP keeps automatically closing. no warning no nothing. everytime i try to play the sound...
this is highly aggravating!
and when i try to restart it all again, the same thing happens. content unreadable, plays, playback stopped, playback resumed, program closes unexpectedly. that is the exact pattern.

VideoStudio • Re: VSPX5 crashes on opening project

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 01:21
All I've installed recently is an EXIF viewer called KUSO, and updated Capture One Pro. Un-installed KUSO, but that hasn't made any difference. Interestingly though, looking at the software installed, Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 and 2013 appear to have been loaded along with the latest version of Capture One, whereas during my re-installation of VSPX5, I see that Visual C++ 2005 has been installed along with it. I'm wondering if that could be causing issues.

Anyway, haven't got time to explore further at the moment.

okay so the "splash screen" says its pro X3. and i open it from a file folder on my desktop.
i tried the method you suggested.
it still comes up with "file is unreadable".
yet it did insert and play just fine into the track but it does not appear in the audio files on the side.
i still cant afford for things to be unreadable. because they still might not work even using this method at some point.

i am unsure how to use a "drop box".
and id rather not give out my email.
