Hmmm

Not good that it crashes, I assume that is when using the SJ 4000 video files, otherwise replace the file back to original.

You may be best in contacting Corel Support to report this problem.

How long have you owned the program, is your free support still valid.?

Corel have a Facebook account, staffed by corel employees, that may be the route to support, worth a try.

I will do a few more tests but don’t think I will improve things.

As a workround you may be best in converting the clips before using in VS.
I used Format Factory ( free converter) to convert the sample to Mov, properties are similar except audio.
The new file seems ok in X7

I too doubt that it's a memory usage or file size issue.

I checked the version of the MSVC Redistributable in various ways against stuff published on the web and MS articles on latest versions, and I'm convinced it's the latest. But asik1, since you are also using XP, can you check your [XP Partition]:Windows\System32\msvcr110.dll file version and date? Mine is version 11.0.51106.1, creation date 2012-11-06, size 875,472 bytes.

I'm guessing it's a combination of something about that particular video file (not just its size) along with a subtle bug (in either VS or the msvcr110.dll library). Of course, that doesn't help me include the file in my VS project until I find it. There is no other problem with that file that I can tell (plays and scrubs just fine in VLC player, for example).


My file is the exact the same. I had no options installing this file as it's part of Visual C++ Redistributable and being install with various media software.

Hi tomkis

Thanks for the sample, unfortunately I also have a problem with that file using X7.
I am able to add to the library and timelines, the properties show ok, showing 229 frames
The video shows all black, well transparent, but no error messages.

Can you make sure you have installed QuickTime, required for Mov, I would have thought yes as X7 should install that?

The sample does however play ok using earlier versions, works for Video Studio X6.

As the Hot Fix was a replacement file ulmp4lib.dll

I have copied the file from X6, can you try using that in your 32 Bit version of X7.
I have the 64 bit X7 version installed so cannot try that file?

ulmp4lib.zip

I am not quite following you here

first you say you render all clips to Mpeg4 - why ?

then you say you put MTS and MP4 into the timeline - then render same as fist video clip - so depending on which comes first you could be rendering to either format - but why are you rendering to either of those ? - if you intend to burn a standard DVD then you need to render to Mpeg2 - then use that mpeg2 to burn the DVD

my first impression is that your problems are down to multiple rendering to different formats.

Give it a try and see if it solves your problem, otherwise there is something in your file that VS does not like, even though it plays OK in VLC


That is the one I have (per information in "Add/remove Programs"). The version number and date I gave was that of the individual msvcr110.dll file in that installation (which has apparently not been changed in the 11/2013 release).

Hi Lata,

Thanks again for your reply.

"As I say I don’t have a problem as the final render is ok":
- can't check that because the trial is expired.

"A lot of work still to do, I am sure you will be using a similar approach, but give it a read.":
- I'll read it at home ...

"By the way what version are you using now?":
- I still have version X3, but with the old problems in exporting to DVD and BR. So, I don't use that software anymore. After that I used Avid Studio 1, Pinnacle Studio 16, 17 and recently version 18. I'm tired of all the crashes and very slow working in 17 and 18 (64 bits!); I'm constant waiting for the program to react. Version 18 should solve a lot, but doesn't, so I asked my money back and want to buy X7 ... also Corel. I liked X3 very much, but couldn’t export my projects well in that time.

VideoStudio • About to give up HELP - VS7 making DVD

Thu, 01/22/2015 - 08:35
Hey guys,

Here is my intention - to make a DVD.

Using a Sony hx60v & GoPro hero 3 black edition I have made an hour long video clip inside Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X7. I have edited multiple clips and then stuck them all into once single project. Each single clip, I rendered using MPEG4 option. Here is the exact process I did to each single clip.

1) Editing clip, using Sony Camera footage (The property file says MTS File (.MTS)) Also I used the GroPro camera (MP4 Video (.MP4)
2) Press share
3)Then I pressed the option "Same as first video clip". Once rendered.
4) I opened the file into a new project along with all the other rendered clips, thus creating my movie.
5)Project settings set to:

MPEG files
24 bits, 720 x 576, 25 fps
Upper Field First
(DVD-PAL), 16:9
Video data rate: Variable (Max. 8000 kbps)
Audio data rate: 384 kbps
Dolby Digital Audio, 48 KHz, 2/0(L,R)

6) Press "share".
7)Press "Disc" - DVD selected.

Now here's comes some of the problem. the Sony camera footage seems to play alright, the gopro footage appears laggy. however the combined footage goes distorted in places, particularly when the camera moves. its like there's little squares that show on the footage, nearly covering the entire image for mini seconds at a time. The squares look like very distorted pixels.

So where am I going wrong. essentially I want to simply make a smooth playing DVD with no distortion or laggy play, otherwise what's the point. I am clearly going wrong somewhere.

Am I rendering the files wrong? I am doing something wrong in project settings. SOMEONE please save me and everyone else around me as its driving us all crazy

Many thanks for the helpful information. I will check all of those options out. Haven't received the item yet but got over excited as I think those filters are petty cool.

Hi tomkis

Welcome to the forums.

There are lots of Mov video formats, camera manufacturers tweaking the codecs for whatever reason, this leaves the video editors catching up with the new Movs.

Corel have created a Hot Fix for one problem, whether that fixes your issue?
Unfortunately I am having problems with the Corel Knowledge Base for downloading this fix.

I have uploaded to my One Drive, hope fully you should be able to download.
http://1drv.ms/1BK3USp

Do a search of the Corel Knowledge Base there may be other fixes, I know there was a GoPro mp4 fix, I think?

If the fix does not work, can you provide a sample, try using One Drive or DropBox.

Hi Richard

Using X7 the file 00006.mts shows 2 duplicate frames at the beginning of each clip.
But rendering to same as clip properties seems ok with no apparent duplicates after the first clip.

Your sample is identical to the ones I use from my Pana 900 series.

As I say I don’t have a problem as the final render is ok

I am updating my quick guides (link below) to use the latest version, basically explaining my workflow from camera to disc.
A lot of work still to do, I am sure you will be using a similar approach, but give it a read.

By the way what version are you using now?

VideoStudio • Re: which filetype and how to export 60fps

Thu, 01/22/2015 - 04:46
Hi
Good thoughts regarding the one frame video. I normally render an image to a video file, then use that as my opening.

Burning Discs.

Bluray and DVD compliant properties, frame rate limitation.

Bluray uses 29.97fps ntsc (25fps for pal) x 1920 x 1080,
Also Bluray can use 1280 x 720 x 60P, not generally used.
Frame size for DVD 720 x 480.

So if you wish to burn a disc then your video has to be converted to use 29.97 fps. That removes half of your frames. The quality should be full bluray quality.

For YT and Dropbox I guess 60P would be appropriate.

I would render my projects to my original HD quality for internet sharing
Then convert those files to Avchd/Bluray or DVD Mpeg2, to be used to burn a disc.
The render properties being as close to the original properties, with the exception of the frame rate, use 29.97.

Share – Avchd create a new template
or Share Custom – Mpeg Transport Stream

Hi,

I just gave it a try: I downloaded the VS X7 Pro. In 2010 I bought version X3 but never used it serously because of frozen frames at the beginning of each fragment of video. I'm still using my Panasonic AVCHD camera and experience still the same problem wit VideoStudio ... each clip playing frames 1-1-1-2-3-4-5 etc.

Is there a solution known?

Thanks in advance.
Richard


Because my trial-version has been expired I have to ask: is this issue still occurring on the timeline? Thanks!

Hi taintedbrown

And welcome to the forums.

We do not work for Corel, simply volunteers helping running the forums.
You should contact Corel support, I know it can be a little difficult as you have to register the product first, but there is always the Corel Facebook, staffed by Corel employees.

Did you receive any contact details with your order information?

There is no update or expansion pack as such - but the VideoStudio Pro and the VideoStudio Pro Ultimate programmes are identical.

The only differences come from the free filters and effects which come with the Ultimate programme - so you could infact "upgrade" by buying those additional options from their own manufacturers and resellers.

VideoStudio • Re: Rotating images/video produces a bounding box on render

Thanks for you replies. I found a way around it for my purposes, but if I had not had a specific use, this could have been a product killer. I managed to use the rotate filter while also sizing all of my images with enough empty space that the filter didn't clip them. Then I used advanced motion only changing scaling and x,y position.

You ask what format to export in but don't say what you want to produce: just a new video? A DVD? A Blu-Ray disc? Answering that will largely determine what format you output to...
