Thanks for the info on backing up.
I’m pretty sure the automated MS updates made the app act flaky.
I know all about resizing panels and docking them. The flaky behaviour happens when I have resized the Player Panel so that it partially covers the Timeline Panel (so I can get a clearer view). Now, when I click on either of the Clip or Project words, (shown on the Player Panel) the bottom part of the Player Panel disappears behind the Timeline Panel so I can’t use the play, forwards, backwards buttons. Really annoying.
I had no scroll bars on my Library Folders.
Even the way VS starts up has changed it use to go dark after the splash screen, and then reappear all sorted. Now after the splash screen, it goes dark quickly, then reappears in sections, then once fully sorted goes dark then reappears again.
I really like VS. Tried 3 different apps and VS seemed to have shortest learning curve. I got comfortable with it very quickly and it is very intuitive compared to the other leading apps.
Another thing I discovered today was that I can’t alter the sample rate from 8 kHz when I’m creating a custom video. The sound file is from ProTools @ 16 bit and 44.1 kHz. I can change the sound settings to 16 bit stereo, but the rate stubbornly remains at 8 kHz. I don’t know whether this is due to the MS update problem due to the fact until now I’ve always combine the video & audio within ProTools app.
I’m thinking of shelling for another new hdd & OS and keeping that off line and purely for VS and other processing apps, so the MS auto updates won’t be able to f@^$%%k things up for me. I know I can turn off auto updates but want to maintain system security.
