Re: How to remove effect from overlay?

Thank you, wow , this catches me so often, the X is often not visible if not in full-screen. Have struggled with this hidden button for so long.

Re: Audio Distortion after rendering

If, all you are doing is creating a "static image" type video from wav files, then using ffmpeg to combine the WAV with a set of jpeg files is an automation option open to you, fiddly, but becomes a tiny once-off programming exercise for the script-junkies like myself. As for distortion, I'm assumin...

Re: How to improve performance

I did not know about the right-click to create smart-proxy, I deleted them all now, in future will definitely go in and clean them out whenever I notice old ones in the cache are getting a bit on the big side. Turning off all the acceleration boost options has helped tremendously. I think having a G...

Re: How to improve performance

... Question: do I need to run the program on the same drive as the content source to gain stability? I am getting delays when I get much beyond a 15 minute complex content with JPEGS mixed with video and transitions and a few effects. It is taking way too much time to search or catch up. It freeze...

Re: How to improve performance

I think, as Lata pointed out. The program had not yet generated smart proxy files. I'm going to check out https://forum.corel.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=67590 for more tips. BUT. Turning on acceleration had no effect for me (although I don't have a CUDA nvidia card anyway) and do need to buy a new gfx ...

How to improve performance

I machine is idling, almost no traffic on the SSD, all 16 cores are hardly moving, but when I tap on a clip in the timeline it takes 3 seconds to "select" the clip. Moving it takes 5 times longer, the app is clearly locking on something and no idea where to look. 1. I disabled the preview and filter...

Re: animated gifs

I ended up creating a mpeg of the animation. Then i ran ffmpeg with -stream_loop to create a really long file ffmpeg -stream_loop 500 -i alice.mpg -y alice_looped500.mp4 And then just chroma-keyed it and added a custom motion path. Bonus is that you can make the animation "zoom size" at the start an...

Re: Rendering!

Lately I run all clips that cause pain through a ffmpeg conversion
ffmpeg -i <filename> -scale=1920:1080 -y <filename_1920>
this resolves a lot of pain : note may distort/stretch if your source is not aspect ratio correct

Re: Randomly not rendering a track/layer at all vs2019

Okay, so I reduced the output dimensions to be smaller and now it renders out fine. So somehow the masks or original footage sizes being various sizes are causing problems because they are to the same scale as a project is?

Rate VideoStudio 2019 pop-up

I have 2019 of VS, today I got a prompt to login to amazon and rate the product.

It takes you to a page to write up a rating for Pinnacle studio 21, how does this connection get made and what is Pinnacle Studio ?

Re: Custom frame masks

(for next time I have to do this)

It turns out that if I use paint.net to save the image as an 8bit bitmap, and make the transparent areas black, that the mask imports correctly.

Re: System spec advice ~£2000

Will definitely spend the graphics card money on a reliable NVMe, good to know. I can afford a 16 core processor, and although VS renders using all 4 cores now, am I safe to assume that 16 cores will be almost 4x fastererer, even before you take into account the slight improvement on clock speed and...
