I have VideoStudio SE, packaged with Sabrent USB-AVCPT cables. I was able to capture video for a while. Now when I try I get the following message. "Capture video bit rate is 300. Frame size is 640 X 480. When using this frame size the video bit rate should be between 1578 - 8838."
I have some video in mpg format I'm trying to split into scenes, and then save off a separate videos. When I try to save one of the trimmed scenes using "Save trimmed video," I get the error: "Unable to compress video with the specific frame rate or frame size." It's all set in 16:9, and it's all set to 29fps, etc.
I need to slow down a clip of video from its original frame rate. The original video is a piece of CCTV footage and is timelapse with a frame rate of 3fps and a total duration of 22 secs. I need to slow this footage down to create a slomo clip. can this be done in CS5ext?
I am converting some video from VHS tapes starting by copying my VHS tapes to my DVD player/recorder's harddisk. I then intend to copy from the hard disk to DVDs and don't mind copying at the maximum resolution. I will then import those DVD's into VS and edit. What I want to know is what is the maximum bit rate I should use so that I don't loose any resolution (my VHS is bad enough as it is) but also fit as much as possible to a single sided DVD. As the resolution of VHS is nowhere as good as DVD I would have thought that it would be a waste of space to output at say 7500kbs.
First, I have lots of files with different properties ( SD and HD files) and all files have different properties. My goal is to edit each individual file, save as individual project file (VSP) and create individual final video file, however with an option. The option is to change any property of that individual video file.
Since creating template would not work with all different video properties, how else should I create a final video file to be able to change only the video bit rate (VBR)?
After editing a file, in when I select “SHARE/CREATE VIDEO FILE/SAME AS FIRST VIDEO CLIP”, the “OPTIONS” does not give me the option to change any individual property. That is, the video files that have too high VBR, I would like to reduce their individual VBR only and leave the rest of the other properties alone.
I know how to change the playback speed of a video clip in my project, but is there a way to have it smoothly transition? For instance, can I have it go from 1x to 3x over a period of 2 seconds or must I jump directly from 1x to 3x (or manually break the files into dozens of super small chunks and manually increase each one... which will still not look smooth)?
I edit an mp4 video and produce a new mp4 video. If I produce the new mp4 while I open the project, the screen size is normal. (c_not_use_batch.jpg) If I produce the new file using batch convert, the screen size is reduced (c_use_batch.jpg) However, the setting for producing the files are the same (c_setting.jpg)
The files and settings are the same. The only difference is using batch convert or not.
I create animated gifs frequently using the Frame Animation pallet. The default frame rate starts out as 10 seconds, so I always have to change it to 4 seconds. Is there anyway to reset the default frame rate that I start out with to 4 seconds, so that I don't have to change it every time?
Preferences did not yield any promising menus
I know the standard default reset with many Adobe products is to change it without a document open, but in PS CS5.5 if you do not have a document open the frame rate option is greyed out ______________ CS5.5 MacPro Tower Mac OS 10.8.2
I burned a DVD of some .MOV clips, and the quality of the video on the DVD is noticeably worse than the original files. The size of the original files is 2.9 GB, but they are shrunk down to just 2.01 GB on the DVD. The bitrate is also significantly lower.
I have been trying Video Studio a few times in the past. The first version I ever tried must have been Ulead Video Studio 7 or 8. I always liked the process oriented GUI and the goodies that are made so easy compared to other video editing software. I remember version 8 and next to be very unstable though, which is why I kept working with other software like Pinnacle. Each time there was a new version though I tried it and I have seen stability improving with every version. I would like to work with Video Studio a lot, however I have serious problems with output quality.
Since a few years I am filming HD video, AVCHD standard (1080i50) with a Panasonic HDC-SD5 and recently HDC-SD900. The last one, a new camera, offers incredible detail and quality. Of course I want to see the same quality in my end product, the output of the video editing software. Here is where I have a big problem.
1. When I save output as AVCHD an use smart rendering there are problems with the transition between two clips. There are blocks all over the place. I have tested this with X2, X3 and X4. I remember in X2 there seemed to be some frames in the wrong order at the end of each clip. In X3 there were blocks. In X4, which I am testing now, sometimes output is good, sometimes there are blocks worse than I ever saw in X3.
2. When I save as AVCHD, Bluray, H.264, ... no matter what format in 1080i without smart rendering there is a big quality loss. It is really visible, especially on the pc screen. I have tried many settings: bluray 2-pass encoding at 30.000bps, AVCHD and H.264 at 18.000bps. It seems to be impossible to get good quality out.
No matter what I did, I cannot even approach the input quality with Video Studio. And let's face it, it all comes down to the output!
I have tried encoding with some other free tools such as Handbrake and Staxrip. Of course these are not video editors, but at least I could compare the output quality.
I transferred some VHS tapes to DVD in VS 10+. They looked very good on my older 26" TV. We recently purchased a 42" flat screen HD and a Bluray DVD player that up converts DVD to near HD. When I played my DVDs that I converted from VHS the video quality is decreased. I burned the VHS tapes to DVD format, 29.97 rate, 7000 bitrate constant 720x480. What is the better format to transfer VHS to DVD?
I am trying to burn VSP projects on Blu-ray discs with the highest quality video possible using VSPx4. I am using video clips from an HD camcorder with frame size 1920 x 1080 and 59.94 fps but when I try to modify the project settings I am unable to change frame size higher than 720 x 480 or 29.97 fps and I'm not sure why. However, after I click share and click to burn a Blu-ray I can open the settings in the new window and change the frame size to 1920 x 1080 but I still cannot increase the speed to 59.94 fps. My first question is do I need to change my project settings while working on the project or is it enough to change the settings after I click to burn the Blu-ray and the second question is can the fps be increased to 59.94?
I bought VSX5 Ultimate last week to go with my new GoPro Hero2, climbed the learning curve, and can now produce presentable videos. I've read the (not very complete) VS User Guide, checked Corel's Knowledgebase, spent the better part of thirty hours twiddling filters (rendering to a 1280x720 output file and viewing that outside of VS) and spent about eight hours searching this forum and the Interweb for the answer to no avail, so here I am:
I have 1920x1080 30p MP4 video from the camera, but want to crop it to 1280x720, and not lose image quality. Can VSX5 do this, and/or how?
I'm new to video, but very old to photography. When I say "crop" I mean "throw away the area outside of my cropping rectangle, resulting in an image of smaller dimensions."
I do not mean "fill the area outside my cropping rectangle with the color of my choice, resulting in an image of the same dimensions" as happens when using the Crop Borders filter.
Video Pan & Zoom doesn't work as the final results are abominable; as soon as I specify 150% zoom (amount needed to make a 1280x720 area fill a 1920x1080 area) quality is lost. The Cropping filter produces the same (lost) quality results. Distort Clip does the best job but still suffers some image quality degradation, and it's nearly impossible to get a precise "150%" crop (or "33% reduction" as my Photoshop brain thinks) as dragging the handles is all by eyeball. I think the problem is that all of these options entail two steps: (1) Enlarging the area I want to keep, causing it to fill the frame -- AND losing quality in the interpolation process. (2) Saving the entire frame (clip), now filled with lower-quality "larger pixels" so to speak, at a smaller size than original.
My Project Properties are NTSC drop frame (29.97fps), AVI, 24bits, 1920x1080, 29.97fps, Frame-based, Uncompressed, PCM, 48kHz, 16bit stereo.
My Movie Template that I'm using is MPEG-4, 24 bits, 1280x720, 29.97fps, Frame-based, H.264 High Profile Video: 12500 Kbps, 48000Hz, 16bit, Stereo, MPEG AAC Audio: 128Kbps.
Am I trying to do something that can't be done? Am I overcomplicating something? Am I missing the "photographic crop" filter?
Brand new to VideoStudio or any other video editing software.
I used VideoStudio X5's screen capture feature to create a couple of training videos for our church. When viewed on their own, the videos look excellent - the screen captures are sharp and clear. But when I use those same captures in a video project - with an opening title and a couple of transitions - the capture videos are grainy, the text of the Web pages included in them almost unreadable.
As I said, I am new to this stuff, so the explanation for what I'm experiencing is possibly quite simple. Nonetheless, why the capture videos look great when I view them on their own, but become blurry when they are part of a project?
So, I have created many bluray video files which I store in my hard drive using the Corel pro "create a videofile feature" and they have worked pretty good, but I have found that burning the same bluray video onto a disc using Corel DVD factory has a superior picture quality, specially when you look at strong colors like red, they don't smear and have a rock solid look to it, I have also found that when the camera pans this problem shows its ugly face even more when creating a video file to the hard drive, but not in the burning disc process. I always choose two pass encode and the highest quality setting when burning a bluray disc.
Question, Is there a way to choose "two pass encode" in the Corel pro program or a way to change settings so that I get rid of the problem, or Can I use the Corel dvd factory in a way that I don't have to burn a disc, but just create a video file?
I made a time lapse video which I then saved as a .VSP file. Then i open a new project and import the VSP file as a video. Then I made some color corrections including an extra point or two of saturation, contrast and brightness. After exporting the video as a 1920x1080 WMV or MP4, i notice a significant reduction in quality compared to the ones where i did not make color corrections. The video appears blurrier like it was exported at a lower resolution. Modifying any of the sliders appears to trigger the effect. I duplicated the problem with a time lapse project consisting of just 5 pictures so there is nothing else in the project. No animations, titles or anything.
I am trying to produce a DVD for private use only from a recording of a free-to-air TV one-off program. The program was recorded by my PVR set-top box that we use to convert the digital (HD, I *think*!) signal for our old analog TVs.
After quite a lot of work - due more to my lack of expertise than anyhting else - I have a VideoStudio project that seems to play quite nicely on the PC.
However, when I burn a DVD, the result is very jerky and flickery - to me, it seems as if the frame speed is too slow.
On one attempt, I noticed that the final .VOB file was only about 2GB - 51 minutes of video - and I decided to try increasing the video bitrate (I think that's what it was). The new .VOB file was a little over 4GB, so I expected the quality to be better.
Not so! In fact (without being able to play the two DVDs at the same time) I think it might be even worse at the higher bitrate.
When I go to render a video that is composed of video clips and an .mp3 music file, I'd like to get the finished file into as big of a file as I can. In order to do that, I select the MPEG-4 option. The good news is it typically will result in an approx file size of 250MB for a 2 1/2 minute video, versus 170MB for any other file extension. The bad news is the audio is full of pops and noise. The audio remains fine with any other option other than MPEG-4.
I've tried numerous ways to 'reconstruct' the file...using different audio file extensions (it seems to prefer .wma files but there is a noticeable drop in clarity), rendering the video only then adding the audio file and rendering again...nothing works. I've also tried to modify the rendering options in each video selection that Corel offers (this is in the window that pops up asking for the file name just before you render it), but the audio never gets better.
I use this software to extract some graphics and animations. But when i export an animation to .gif it slow down. So, i export each frame to .bmp. I open in photoshop all the .bmp, create an animation, but when i export it...yeah the same problem... the .gif is slower.
I record a video as an example. [URL] ..........
I don't know why this happens.
Note: This is an example. This happens with almost animated gifs i create with photoshop. I use Photoshop CS5.5)
Why I cannot render a frame-based video when selecting (Share/Custom/MPEG Transport-stream)? My goal is to create an AVCHD video and burn it to a DVD (4.7G). My video is 16min long and the calculated bitrate is around CBR 15,000 kbps. If I use the (Share/ADVCHD/1920) option, I don't have any control over the settings. I have already deinterlaced my video using Neoscene. That is why I want to create a frame-based video.
Below is my workflow.
Two video sources: .mov(1080p) from ContourHD 1080p camea .mts(1080i) from Canon Vixia HF S100
1. Trim .mts files in CSV PX3 2. Trim .mov files in Contour S/W 3. Convert trimmed clips to .avi with Cineform Neoscene 4. Edit in CSV PX3 5. Planned to render in AVCHD, 1920x1080p, 29.97 fps, 15000 kbps
