EDIT: Worked like a charm! Thank you very much! I'll remember to select PCM in audio settings from now on!

I leave video set to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and leave the audio to Auto (So I'm not sure which it uses). I screencapped the choices below. Any preferences that you guys think would better suit VS' audio capabilities? Maybe PCM-16bit?

I have, in any case, just rendered a short (22 second) HD file (mp4/h.264, fully progressive 50 fps, bitrate 29 Mbps) to a Custom 4K file using two pass encode to maximise quality. My monitor is a 24" Acer 1920 x 1080. Playing back the new video in X7 simply showed as good a quality as the original, though curiously, the 4K video on the preview screen was clearly smaller in format size than the original. I can't account for that. But after that, I could not find anything among my software players that would play the 4K. VLC (recently updated to latest version) started off OK and quality looked good, but then playback got erratic and after a few seconds the video playback froze, though the audio continued. Needless to say, the original HD video plays perfectly well throughout.

As for the audio, all I can say is that successive versions of VS have occasionally had trouble with certain types of mp3 -- and particularly that encoded using the LAMEmp3 codec. I don't know what audio codec might have been used in this case, but it could be the cause of your problems.
Does the device or software you used to capture the original clip allow you to change the format used e.g. instead of using mp3 audio, can you set it to, say, standard (L)PCM?

The VSP is simply a project file used by Video Studio to save the edits you apply in the timeline.
You can open the project (VSP) from File Open Project, your VSP may also show at the bottom of the File menu list.
The properties you provided seem to be the project properties which may be different to your video files properties.
You should now see your two 11 minutes clips showing on the timeline.
Please right click one of these clips and select properties.
These are the properties of your video file, what are they?
If you wish using Alt + Prt Sc will copy the window to your clipboard, you can then use an image editor to create an image, attach the image to your post, attachments at bottom of post.

I had some problems with YouTube that turned out to be my problem.
YouTube Have integrated with Google I think, anyway I had a conflict with my log-in details between Google and Youtube, once I sorted that things seem to work ok.
I have to say that although I use the Upload To Web option to render to MP4, I then cancel the upload window.
Play the new file to check quality, then log-on to YouTube from my own links/account.
Video Studio 7 has changed in that you have to log-on to YT before rendering the project, it then continues to upload, not sure I like that as I don’t have the opportunity of viewing the video before I upload.

Since we don't know the properties -- and particularly the audio properties -- of those avi files, it is impossible to say what might be wrong. So please right click on one file of each type of avi, either in the VS timeline or library window, and copy ALL their properties here -- or take a screen grab of the Properties boxes and upload them here as attachments.
One other question. It has been years since I have had a Finepix, but I seem to recall it came with an installation disc. Did that happen with your Finepix and Pentax? Did you install those discs? They could contain specific codecs which VS could then use.
Helly Ken & Co.
I've installed the Finepix viewer software and imported the files from my camera and I still have no sound. Here is a copy of the file properties:
Have no clue as to what to do now but will install Windows 7 Codec Pack reset and see what happens

I'm running Corel VideoStudio X7 on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine. I've got a video that I chopped to pieces (Two 30-minute .avis, cut down to 11 minutes in small pieces). Tried searching for a similar issue on the forums and came up empty-handed...
Ironically, the movie, when played in the preview window of X7, works fine (I've got a pretty high-end PC, so the resources aren't too taxing on my system).
However, when I export it, it seems like the beginning of a lot of the individual 'clips' have choppy audio for a few seconds. Really messes with the entire video when you're talking about having a movie made up of clips of only 5-10 seconds. I've tried some options just sounded like they may help (i.e. - using SmartProxy).
I normally export in the default settings of AVC/H.264, but I've tried almost ALL the options with the exact same final product. I also tried exporting directly to Youtube, and the audio is choppy at the exact same moments of the other exported videos.
Are there any ways to smooth the audio when you have a "butchered" video like I do? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Corel advertise -
"Enjoy new performance gains with the ability to upscale HD to 4K"
Just curious if anyone has tried this and if so what was the results?

Any help please?

I did all that and then I tried to reinstall it. Now I get some message like;
Cannot access E000 something. It must be a registry key of some sort.
Now what do I do?

Do Roxio offer a free trial, I've had a look but cannot see anything
No, they don't have a Free Trial but have a 30 day return policy for downloads from their site.. See http://shop.roxio.com/store/sonic/html/pbPage.en-returns-cancellations#q1

First can you try copying the entire disc content to your hard drive, then try installing from those files.
As far as I know the download version is smaller than the purchased version although will be fully functioning. Size about 1.2Gb. Compared with 2Gb+
So may be worth downloading just to see if it works ok.
You cannot use your discs serial number to activate the download version, not unless Corel have changed things. The disc serial number can only be used for the disc installation.
