Re: Alternatives to Video Studio?

I have resisted the temptation to upgrade despite the constant nag when running the program. X9 does everything I need. I see no reason at this point to upgrade or move. I too have been using this software for a very long time.

Re: Cannot encode YouTube videos with Corel VideoStudio X4

Hi John Well I find the YouTube.ini file here:- C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Corel VideoStudio Pro X4\Ulead.dat As I said I am sure I searched this location, but definitely in that folder structure. Hmm. Maybe it's because you have multiple versions on your pc and I only have x4? That's all I can t...

Re: Cannot encode YouTube videos with Corel VideoStudio X4

Hi John I know X5 is capable of being tweaked, I am sure I searched for the same file in X4 structure and couldn't find it. Have just searched again, this time with my eyes open, I just do not know why I missed first time round Details below for X5 should be the same for X4 How to adjust the 15-min...

Re: Cannot encode YouTube videos with Corel VideoStudio X4

Hi John Yep I noticed that as well, don’t know why Corel gave the info for X5 yet X4 is still a problem. By the way X6 duration limit has been removed. You can use Settings---Make Movie Templates Manager to create your own template using the same settings as Upload to Web options. The template will...

Re: Cannot encode YouTube videos with Corel VideoStudio X4

Hi Give us some more info regarding your video files, right click a clip in the timeline and select properties, what are they? Maybe we can suggest other formats, some allow for user defined frame sizes, You Tube will however play the video on a 16:9 aspect viewer. So you are best to create a 16:9 ...

Crop 16:9 video clips for use in 4:3 project?

I'm trying to integrate 16:9 HD video clips into a 4:3 project (or vica versa). Does anyone know of a way to do this? Obviously it will take cropping the edges but how? VS does not appear to be up to the task that I can figure. Maybe a third party utility?

Thanks,

Re: Using VS Pro X4, wide screen keeps coming on.

Yep, if you want 4:3 then you must either manually de-select Widescreen from the settings menu, or inserting the first video clip into the Main video track. That is provided you have the option checked in Preferences to Show message when inserting first.... checked, and that will only work on video...

Update you tube interface

I like to use the automatic you tube up loader but........it's sadly outdated already. I can upload a one hour video on you tube on my account if I so desire. VS will trim it to 15 minutes when creating. Of course I can render an MPEG 4 file with the same properties and upload it but the interface i...

Re: VS X5: Wish List for Next Version

Has nothing to do with being stubborn or prideful. I have no problem with how it works now, so I don't see the need to change it. That's my opinion. I give up, you win. Leave the product with innumerable funky little quirks that make no sense. As long as we all know they're there, hey what's a few ...

Re: VS X5: Wish List for Next Version

To each his own I guess. But then again I don't get upset when I have to choose over and over again that I am making a DVD, or a 16:9 DVD, or I have to change the bitrate, or.......... Don't be so stubborn and prideful Jeff. How hard is it to admit the suggestion he made would be an improvement in ...

Re: VS X5: Wish List for Next Version

2. Preferences option to TURN OFF AUTOPLAY OF VIDEO AFTER CREATION by default....not require user to always have to remember to uncheck the option which defaults to yes/play. I think this one is just a matter of opinion. I like that it plays the video after rendering. That way I know it is finished...

Re: "an unspecified error has occurred" X4 Authoring

That's fine as a workaround, though hardly a solution!!! :cry: :roll: I think it's pretty good thinking and easy for any of us to do. If corel never fixes this bug at least those who have read this thread will not be bothered much in the future. Other users who don't frequent this board on the othe...

Re: "an unspecified error has occurred" X4 Authoring

Trevor, I have found that I can in fact delete the audio without getting an error as long as I leave the motion menu box checked. One more thing, in case any one was wondering why I always make an image file and don't use VS to burn the actual DVD. That has a lot to do with the cancel button not wor...

Hi John The reply from Craig seems to suggest that you have also found the problem being related to background music, is this correct.? Cancel button, yes I have noticed that this does not work, has never worked for previous versions. I did work at one time but cant remember how far to go back. X2 ...

Re: "an unspecified error has occurred" X4 Authoring

Hi John First can you please tell me what program you used to do the video screen capture, cheers. I used a program called camtasia. It's designed for making tutorials and such. It's pretty powerful and expensive too. ($300). It is way cooler in function than anything in that demo I threw together ...
