I am using VS x6 to provide a way to present family photos via slide shows. So far I have had success in doing so through the help of forum participants, Corel Discovery videos and YouTube tutorials.
My problem is that the photos do not "fill the screen:" which I am sure is due to the photos being different sizes to start with. I edit the photos with Corel PSP.
Is there a way to establish the optimum size in the VS project and then resize the photos in PSP for a consistent look in the slide show?

In the past, for me at least when I received boxed editions, the SN was on a glued strip on the square envelope which held the actual installation disc.

The Guide will require Flash Player to be able to run correctly.
What version of Flash Player are you using, X6 installs 10.0.12.36
Can you try uninstalling and re-installing Flash or maybe update to the latest version.?

I realise you are aware of the serial number format but this is what my X6 version looks like.
Usually the serial number will be on the box, I am not sure if they show on the actual disc?
To be honest I don't know what you can do, the problem is with Amazon and the person that sold the software.
If bought from Corel then you may have some chance.
As far as I know Boxed versions have a dedicated serial number that would only work with one disc.
So for Corel to provide a serial number they may require the disc.
You could try Corel on Facebook, at least you will be talking directly to Corel

I understand this may not be the place to ask such questions, but there is no way that I can contact Corel's tech support without paying, which I really do not want to do. And seeing as the phone support has been removed in the US, this is the only way I can speak to another human being. Thanks.

Brian- thanks for the heads up, I will give that a shot when I try to log on later today.

When you access the guide the windows blue halo timer will show.
Be patient allowing time for this halo to disappear before you press the mouse again.
Uploading the Corel Guide can take a while, it may be that clicking the mouse is interrupting the download?

you can however continue to use VideoStudio if you press "alt" and F4 on your keyboard together at the same time to close that guide - then you can continue using VideoStudio.

However, I closed it out to take a break, then came back to it (same day, and hour later) now every time on startup it hangs on the overlayed "Corel Guide" flash intro. The window pops up and allows navigation of the "Corel Guide" and I am able to click-through of the links, but it will not collapse the guide or let me use the actual program at all. I also can not close the program either without using task manager. I am only on day 1 of the 30 day trial. I have attached a screenshot.
My cpu should be able to handle the program without a problem, it is running Win7 64bit, with 16GB Ram, AMD Phenom II x6 Processor, 3.20Ghz
Could anyone please provide assistance? Thanks in advance!

I've just recently upgraded my PC setup from an ancient single-core cpu (AMD) PC to an 6-core AMD PC:
cpu: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 14.0 MB cache
motherboard: Asus M5A 78L-M LX-Plus
graphics: ATI Radeon HD3000 integrated (AMD 760G chipset)
RAM: 8GB DDR3
Sound: RealTek HD surround 7.1
Hard drive: Maxtor SATA 3 500GB
Monitor: LG Flatron 19" LCD (legacy from my old system)
And I've also now just upgraded from Corel Video Studio 11+ to Pro x6, primarily to benefit from the multi-threading support.
Now, I'm rather disappointed to find that the integrated ATI Radeon HD3000 GPU does not support hardware acceleration.
And looking at the requirements for VS x6, I see that this also needs a minimum of 512MB VRAM and at least Windows Vista.
I am presently running good old XP Pro SP3, but was anyway planning to upgrade to Windows 8, or maybe Windows 7 (if I can find a better deal), within the next week or so.
Anyhow, the main subject of my inquiry is on the choice of a suitable graphics card upgrade. With 450W PSU, that really limits the choice to:
AMD Radeon HD6670:
Full specs: http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/ ... iew.aspx#2
although there is this 2GB DDR3 version on-sale locally which I am considering:
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/amd ... 91076.aspx
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/xfx-amd-rad ... Id=4677014
Nvidia GeForce GT640 2GB
http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop ... ifications
A tad pricier, but also available locally:
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/asu ... 16417.aspx
In the VS x6 user guide, it states, quote " For optimum performance, VGA cards must support DXVA2 VLD mode with Vertex and Pixel Shader 2.0 or later"; I have no idea what all that means.
I would be grateful for any advice on which of these two cards might better provide the optimum benefit from the hardware acceleration support in VS Pro x6, ideally from hands-on experience or else based on the specs. I have seen a few comparisons in relation to gaming, where, by and large, they appear to have similar performance (as 'entry level' cards) but being somewhat influenced by the games being played and the 'computing boosts' they favor.

In addition to the quality 360 v 720 -- I would suspect the “fraps” codec, I don’t think Corel Video Studio supports that format.
Do a search of the forums for similar issues.
You may be best converting your “fraps” to a more editable format, then use the new file in Video Studio.

1. Multicam with auto sync. At least 2 cameras
2. Real secondary color correction.
3. 64bit support
4. And this is a pet peeve of mine... an overlay track is always ABOVE the track. Titles are OVERlayed, not underlayed. But this is just me....
5. To be able to use Smartsound's Express Track/SonicFire Pro interface.
Oh, and Red Giant plugins like in Pinnacle Studio. They are really great.

Corel at one time provided a file to uninstall the program, “Clean-up Utility”
I do not think they provide one for X6 but do give some manual uninstall details here.
Removal Instructions for Corel VideoStudio Pro X6
It is difficult to identify why your program should simply fail with the unspecified error.
1 / go to Windows Updates and also check for any optional updates, I had a problem with a Graphics driver on a new laptop so why look at an update?
2 / Quicktime has caused problems in the past, installing an earlier version has helped some users, 7.5.5 seemed to work well.
However I do not think QT too much of a problem nowadays, but maybe worth trying 7.5.5.
3 / K-Lite, well uninstall it—Corel do however recommend using this pack, do a search of the knowledge base.

After extracting the contents of the installation file the program should automatically start to install.
Are you giving the program time to do that?
Delete the setup files
C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X6 Setup Files
Then run the installation again, try running as Administrator
Installation can be exceedingly slow, so be patient
Are you trying to install the trial version or a purchased version?

Using the Capture Tab option I assume you choose Stop Motion – Import
This would save the images to a folder and insert a UIS file to the timeline.
(Ulead Image Sequence)
The other option would be to insert the images directly to the timeline, then change their duration to 1 Frame, unfortunately the default insert has a minimum duration of 1 sec.
1 / Deselect Auto add transition effect (F6 – Preferences) Edit Tab
2 / Right click the top timeline and select Insert Photo – Browse for your images
3 / Keyboard Ctrl + A will select all images
4 / Right Click selected images and choose Change Image Duration – set to 1 frame
5 / View the timelines in Storyboard will display the images as thumbnails, may be useful.
