VideoStudio • Re: Cannot import mp4/quicktime video

Mon, 06/22/2015 - 03:35
Hi

The frame size is half HD, it is using an aspect ratio of 16:9, well as near as.

Are you able to upload a sample to Google Drive or Windows Microsoft OneDrive.

That way we can try on our pc’s.

There have been some problems with some types of MP4, Corel did provide a fix, providing a DLL to replace the originals.

I have problems downloading the fix, searching the Corel Knowledge base for GH3 mov
http://howto.corel.com/en/corel?family= ... =GH3%20mov

Unfortunately that’s as far as I get.

I have provided the files on my One Drive, there were a series of fixes from Corel-- try using the “Latest Mov Fixes”

http://1drv.ms/1GIciAD

I don’t know if this will fix your issue but worth a try.
The attached word doc gives details of the fix, I think?

Hi Jan

Corel have provided a Service Pack SP1, this is available from the program after Check for Updates. Go to the Corel Guide – cogwheel top right – Check for Updates

The SP1 fixed the re-linking issues when using Timelapse.

VideoStudio • Re: VideoStudio 10 audio problem

Mon, 06/22/2015 - 03:05
Hi Donald

I used Video Studio X4 and have not had a problem with your project.
I rendered the project to same as first clip, that created a new video file.
Add that to the overlay track and play, both tracks will play together the audio was an exact match to the original.
The last comments at 01:30:32:00 Looks Good is spot on.

Some observations regarding the video files.

The original seems to be 16:9 widescreen, I assume to be HD.
This has been rendered converted to 4:3, black borders being added top and bottom to achieve the 4:3 frame.

The Project Properties are set correctly for the 4:3, the video displays as widescreen because of the black borders.

Audio
Original clips….
First clip …. I do feel that the audio sync is out a little, maybe a few frames, that’s from the beginning opening scene, not really a problem, maybe I am being ultra critical.

I have not noticed any clicks or problems with the audio playback that does not show on the originals. I must admit to not playing the video throughout.

Back in Aug 10th 2013 I tested a similar video sample with no problems, Ken also confirmed this in his tests.
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=43205#p273890

It could be Video Studio 10 but I doubt that, for me uvs10 was probably the best of the bunch at that time.
You could try getting hold of the X7 trial, don’t waste time trialling X8 it does not do Mpeg2?
I would suspect your pc is at fault? are you using XP?
Have you tried re-installing the operating system, sorry but that may be the next step,
Unfortunately XP is no longer supported by Microsoft so no Windows Updates will be available.

Hopefully others will test your files and find the problem, but for me they work ok?

VideoStudio • Re: Opening vob files in VS x8 Ultimate

Mon, 06/22/2015 - 02:13
Hi
Just making sure?

I noticed from the last image that the files extensions are not showing, that means you have “Hide Extensions of known file types” set in the Tools – View folder options.
That makes it difficult to re-name the Vob files

You should see VTS_01_1.VOB as the files name, indecently you have 5 of those
Rename to VTS_01_1.MPG to VTS_01_5.MPG

Otherwise are you able to upload the last Vob (VTS_01_5.vob) that should be the smaller of the 5 vobs available.
Try Microsoft One Drive (https://onedrive.live.com/)
or Google Drive

I must admit that not all Vobs allow us to rename them, no idea why?

But as mentioned in earlier replies there are free software that will rip Vobs to Mpg

I did in fact contact Yvonne, but have only just now received her reply, as follows:


Yes, we have released it via product update first as it is faster.
The web update would be available later since it takes some time for localization.

The product update can be prompted automatically in 3rd launch of that day or by clicking “Check for update”.

The updates in this patch:
● Fix the program launch error while the Hard Disk space is over 3TB

● Improve the MPEG-4 compatibility

● Fix the Facebook and Vimeo uploading error

● Fix “Out of memory” error while enabling right to left typing and paste texts

● Fix the crash error when there are unlinked clips and trying to burn DVD or Blu-ray disc

● Fix the error while resetting the media library, some filters are lost

● Fix the relink error while TimeLapse speed is lower than 100%

● Fix the rendering error with "File Format Mismatch” message

● Fix the playback error with MOV projects


I pointed her to this thread, noting some of the anomalies that have arisen, but she did not address these, sadly... But at least we now have a list of what the SP is supposed to fix...

I think you are correct. But why? If this is a studio where I can create videos why should it matter? After all, overlays can be any resolution. I am trying to make some personal music videos using random clips from the internet. Will the batch converter in VS X7 convert it? Or will that not recognize videos of a non-standard format either? If not, is there any converter that is free? I am not doing this for any kind of commercial reason.

Hi all,

Even more curious . . . I've just re-checked for X8 on the patches and updates pages - the ones via the Corel page support tab, and also the ones via the Corel page products tab (this is the one that Trevor linked to in his reply to my original post on this topic) - and there's no mention of X8 SP1 on either of them now. I saw the one Trevor mentioned the day of his post, and downloaded it, so that item has definitely been pulled. The date on the update file I got was 10 June, but it did not even surface in the product until 10 days later. Given the responses above, Trevor may have been the only one of us that even knew it was there prior to my first post. In user accessibility terms, it comes and it goes, and there seem to be side effects - like the one mentioned where access to the update page was denied.

This has all the earmarks of a rushed development update cycle - tests passing but incomplete, target date reached: update posted; further tests fail, update pulled or at least access denied, and webadmin not keeping up. I saw this happen with Microsoft updates several times in past years (last one that happened to me was Dec 14) and on the web user opinions on the company and product as a result were'nt pretty.

I have some students with X8, but I am certainly not going to recommend or even mention to them an SP1 update until Corel can get its house in order and some stability in this space.

Have the board moderators even mentioned this debacle to Yvonne - the Corel product contact - yet? If so, what did she say? (debacle might seem a strong description, but it's how I see it. A reliable update path is something one expects to be available from professional commercial product).

I think the problem is caused because the frame size of the video is rather unusual at 852 x 480. Video Studio would be looking for a more standard size like 720 x 480 or if it is high definition 1280 x 720 or 1920 x 1080... Where did the video come from?

The only thing I can suggest is to convert it using a third party video converter to a standard frame size -- though this could alter the size of what would appear in the frame which would eventually be shown on screen. But whatever the case, Video Studio would only output using a standard frame size even if you succeed in opening the clip in it.

I doubt very much that VS is the source of your problem. BTW, you never mentioned what VS version you are using. Renaming a mp4 file to a mov will also not solve your problem.
Where did you get the video?

VideoStudio • Cannot import mp4/quicktime video

Sun, 06/21/2015 - 16:05
Hello,
I have been using Video Studio in a while and I have run into an issue like this before. But I have been able to resolve it in the past. I am unable to drag and drop an mp4 video onto the video track. I have tried renaming the file, and even renaming the extension to mov as was suggested in another post. Renaming the extension allows me to drag and drop but while I can play the video for a short time, shows up as only being an audio track and soon splits into a white and black strip (white on top). I cannot edit the video at all and after a few clicks I cannot do anything. I purchased this within the last year and I am going to be really irritated if I have to upgrade again (after 2 upgrades) in order to use the most recent video because Corel doesn't upkeep its products. That has happened before and I will not do it again. I will simply move to another company. FYI the file was created back in 2013 so this isn't an issue of new technology. I have the latest version of Quicktime installed.

I have run Media info and this is what it comes back with:
1 video stream:AVC
1 audio stream:AAC
2: System Core/System Core
Overall bit rate mode: Variable
Overall bit rate: 3,129 Kbps
Writing Library: Apple Quicktime
First video stream: 2998 Kbps 852*480 at 29.97 fps AVC(NTSC)(Baseline@L3.1)(2 Ref Frames)
First audio stream: 128 Kbps 48.0 KHz, 2 channels, AAC (LC)

The file "uvs150619_163033~0.mpg" is the primary and most important file. All the other files are shorter clips to edit into that primary much larger file.

My fellow collectors and I upload and download files of that size all of the time on Google Drive using our respective e-mail addresses.

I was able to download all the files from GoogleDrive except for "uvs150619_163033~0.mpg". When I try to download that file I get the message "Not Found Error 404".

I can play the file. It shows a length of 1:37:52. Can one upload a file that long/large to GoogleDrive?

Which version of QT do you have installed -- the latest? I have installed the SP and have the current version of QT installed as well. Just ran a quick test in X8 and had no trouble producing a .mov file using clips in another format.

Can you play the the Video_TS.ifo file with a software player such as VLC or WMP? If not then then there is something wrong with the Video_TS folder creation.

Another test you could do is to create a simple project (only a minute or so) and burn it to a Video_TS folder. Then try to import that Video_TS folder into VS X8

VideoStudio • Re: why is the framerate grayed out?

Sun, 06/21/2015 - 12:36
Hi monjanse

And welcome to the forums

The international Bluray Disc standard uses 25 fps / 29fps, you cannot burn a disc using 50P and 1920 x 1080.

There is an exception in using 1280 x 720 x 50P, you would render your project to create a compliant video file.
Then use that file to burn a BD
