Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve is a lot more daunting to get started with than VideoStudio, but one thing Resolve does is head and shoulders better than the competition. I call them "fade handles." When a video, audio or text clip is on the timeline, you can linger the mouse pointer over the upper corner of the clip and a little grab handle appears. At the beginning of the clip, dragging the fade handle to the right causes the clip to smoothly fade in. At the end of the clip, dragging the fade handle to the left causes the clip to fade out smoothly. And it works exactly the same for audio, video and text clips on the timeline. It makes simple fades in/out so much simpler and easier to control.

Nice idea, but other software allow you to do that too. Pinnacle Studio, Vegas Pro/Movie Studio. But you are right, it is an excellent feature to have.

But for "me", a stable, functional release where I do not have to wait weeks/months for something to get fixed that has been advertised as a "new/enhanced" feature.

Wishlist for VS 2021? realy?
How about making it very simple. Just make VS to work . ZERO new things, ZERO new features
Take all the stuff you stuffed into VS in the last 4 years and finish them up!! So finely VS2021 will work.

** I think 90% of the forum will agree the threat can be closed.

Ha ha ha! Obviously based on VS2018, VS2019 and VS2020, Corel couldn't care less about stability and reliability. New purchasers want features and that's what Corel delivers with each new release. In any event, it's apparent that Corel doesn't care about either this forum or the users' complaints/suggestions posted on it as forum members aren't its target market.

When you insert a video clip, to replace a given one, if the video is shorter than the given clip it will not be replaced. Only if it is of greater size than the given clip will it be replaced. Make it possible to insert shorter clips and close the gap moving all other clips. Presently, I shorten the clip to be replaced and then insert the desired clip which will be longer than the now shorten original clip.

Thank you Ken Berry for starting this thread. Sadly, I'm totally in agreement with tletter and asik1 - fix the current major issues with the software and release a stable functioning version. But based on the activity of Corel they do not care about current users and our complaints in this forum and are more interested in new bells and whistles to keep the marketing team employed. CEO, Patrick Nichols as failed his loyal user base and should be replaced.

I agree with the above wholeheartedly. Fix the problems and it will be the best in its class.

OK - somewhat of a newbie. I use Video Studio to create short game clips for my athletes, with a voice over to describe what is happening and how to improve the play. I have hundreds of game videos, where the same play might exist in many of them - but I have no easy way to 'index' this.

I'm wondering if anyone else might be able to use this feature (I don't think it exists, but not sure how I would search for it):

While reviewing a game I would like to be able to use tags to mark the existence (and time) of a play (user defined name). I would then like to be able to use this to search for/find videos with the specific content I want to include in my presentation, and where in the timeline that content exists. Sort of an indexed catalog of user defined content. For example, I might want to show how my team executed the play and then include a clip from a different game that shows the correct way to execute it. It is very tedious to have to watch, write notes, transcribe onto a spreadsheet and save on my hard drive for every game. Quicker would be to simply tag as I watch and have it indexed for me.

Not sure if that made much sense. If anyone has suggestions on how to achieve something like this, I would be forever grateful.

IMHO this capability is outside the scope of a NLE and would likely cause even more VS crashes than currently occur. Suggest that you check out Play Index tools which are built to meet your requirement.

I would guess this would be a data base that you can create yourself. Fill it out as you edit.

I wondered what happened to the save as function where you could save a project in a previous version. Can you bring that back please. It was so handy when the new version has problems then your could at least save your project to the previous version that worked!

Hello,
Would it be possible to have a filter to show/hide images that had been added to the Timeline? When I add the contents of a folder to work on, it would be handy to just see the photo's not yet added to the timeline. This would be added where the option are to hide/show images/video/audio files.

Also, something to assist with adding additional images. At present, if I add photos from a holiday and then obtain more photos from a friend (which I then put in the same Windows folder) it is not easy to add the new photos to the VideoStudio folder I created for that holiday media. Just something simple would do, such as to be able to add the whole folder again but have the option to not import duplicates. I have used watchfolders in Pinnacle Studio, which sound good but I would not want to suggest anything that could lead to a performance hit on VS.

Apologies if I have missed something that VS already does I am very new to the product.

Items on the timeline are ticked in the VS's libraries since 3-4 years ago

Yes thank you I know they are ticked - it was the same in Pinnacle Studio so I am very familiar with that. What I want to be able to do is filter out those with a tick so I can see which images are not yet in the video.
