Problem creating 2 hour plus video
|||OpenShot Video Editor||
Congratulation for a great video editor!!! Here's my objective. Using OpenShot 2.2.1 on Ubunti 10.10. Camera is Panasonic ZS7 shooting AVCHD lite. 1) Problem importing 200 clips at one time. Successful doing 100 at a time then after 200 clips were imported, I needed to back of to 25 at a time. It seemed to take too much time trying another 100 clips after 200 clips were imported. I was able to successfully import 372 (0000 to 0371) clips from one memory card then another 103 (0000 to 102) clips from a second. 2) Problem with the small icons with each imported video clip. I had two memory cards, the clips were imported from both of them and the second memory card had clips 0000 through 103 which was the same id as the other memory card's clips. The actual video was correct but the small icons from the second set of clips displayed on the first set of clips. 3) Problem with the 300rd clip. At about 1 hour 26 minutes when I added clip 300 to the timeline, the timeline pointer would disapear when I tried to view any of the video. It would disapear about 2 seconds at the beginning of the video. Also, OpenShot started crashing. Also, earlier, the timeline pointer and it's line would become out of sync with each other. The line seemed to be on video but it's pointer was to the right of the line and when the line hit the center point of the timeline, they would become aligned. I had to eliminate clips back to about 1 hour 10 minutes then OpenShot seemed to behave enough that I could continue with the video in two parts, about an hour each. I had previously added a title at the beginning of the video and I was not able to go back and work with it. When I selected the title I was not able to bring up "Font Properties" but I was able to bring up both "Pick a Colors". I deleted the title and created a new one. No problems with exporting to DVD and creating a DVD from it. The video is about one hour 12 minutes long. I will continue with the next 1 hour video. I don't know how many people try to make a 2 hour plus movie but I think this was a good test. Please let me know if more information is needed. I am at work and quickly wrote the above. I hope it isn't too confusing and please E-mail me with any questions. Thanks for a great video editor and I hope this makes it even more amazing than it already is.
