The magic music files I had bought over the years are gone. There is no: rebuild smart sound Database btton

Thanks Eugene

PS Program files X86 has a file smartsound , same as in a 1 yr backup

I do have a file C:\programdata\smartsound software Inc\Sound files

My music is in there, how to get it into PD19 ?

I AM GETTING FORGRTFUL. lOOKED IN PLUGINS, There is was.
Quote Ok I think I understand what you're looking at.

In PD14's Transition Room, the transition animation shows a plain blue A screen transitioning to a yellow B screen, while in PD19 the animation is more detailed with the letters drawn with glossy edges and reflections and sand dunes in the background.

Is this what you're calling "airplane wing shading"?



If so, it's only displayed in the animation and is not part of the actual transition at all when used in a project.

If you look at the comparison video I posted earlier, you can see that there is no difference at all in transitions between PD14 and PD19 when they're applied to clips





Yes it is, and I was under the impression that it would show in the finished transition. Dunes is a perfect description.

I hope I did not wreck your Sunday.

Eugene
Quote Hmm, I don't know what "airplane wing shading" means, and I honestly don't see the slightest difference between the tranistions when produced by PD14 or PD19. Take a look at this comparision video, where I've shaded the PD19 clip so it looks different from the one produced with PD14:



The transitions are perfectly melded and I don't see any difference when comparing the PD14 and PD19 versions. Maybe you could share the two clips you produced so we can see why they look so different.




Thank you optodata for all the trouble you went through!! My wife and I went out for Sunday breakfast with dear neighbors, we have done that for 15 years. Friends make such a difference in life.....

But there is a BIG difference when comparing the two. The second, PD-old transition has a straight edge at the point or edge where the scene change takes place. It is linear so to speak.

In the first, PD-new, it is curved and for some peculiar reason my brain finds that objectionable. (Wish CL had a spell checker)

So the easy way out for me would be an exchange of transition files or having both.

Again Optodata,
thanks.

PS I looked at it again and have not expressed myself clearly in this post. On PD14 the transition background? has a uniform shade or uniform color level as viewed in the transition room best viewed w/o making a transition.. In PD 19 that is not so, it has shading, looking to me as part of a airplane wing.

I do not know how to ad a video here. I will try to figure that out.

Eugene
Good morning, and thank you optodata.

You are correct, I found it but it is not the same clean transition, there is still that " airplane wing" shading. This is not present in PD14.

Usually I make do with about 6 transitions, I use "fade" most often.


Is there a way to import those I like into PD19? Or all of them?

That would be the perfect solution. There is a folder named transitions, but both the PD14 and PD19 content looks the same.

Just to be sure, I compared the two versions again and there is a big difference in appearance. And in your sample as well. Somebody at CL must have had an inspirational urge to leave his fingerprint. WHY!!

Thanks
Eugene
I transited from PD14 to PD19 recently and used some transitions and they seemed the same as in PD14.

But yesterday I noticed that there is a "sub pattern" looking like an airplane wing shadow, imposed and I do not like it. Am I seeing things and is there such a thing? This is in most of my transitions.

Also the old goodies like Full Twist and Page Fold and some others are missing in 19.

Is there a way to transfer my PD14 transitions into PD19, hopefully different folder?

Any adivce is much appreciated.

Thanks

Gene

PS Both PD versions are installed side by side w/o apparent problems.
Was going to make some setup changes to PD19 via set up, except the circle is gone ???


Thanks Eugene

Sorry, found it on the right side, used to be on the left. Need some wide angle glasses.

Eugene
Hi PD 19 like its earlier versions has only limited enhancements like floating baloons or snow flakes etc. to use in titles or transitions.

Are these available somewhere?


I found PD19 not much different from PD14, at least for my kind of simple 4K editing. It seems to be stable, no complaints.

Thanks

Eugene.

Wow fast response to my yammerings!

Thanks

Wonder what made my detected scenes diappear? It sure proved the benefit of creating multiple named Save as files as you edit.

Thanks JL-JL and Optidata

I am ok thanks to multiple back ups while editing.

Wonder what else is lurking in the shadows?

thanks

I figured that one out but an other problem.
I used scene detect and used the result to edit by bringing them up with "view scenes"

Now they are gone, and view scenes is greyed out.

Again any help apprciated.



Maybe should have stayed with PD14?

Quote I finally went to PD19 from PD14. Generation of shadow files has not much improved, unfortunately. Like the VU meter.

At the moment I am trying to adjust timeline audio levels by using the mouse over the audio line, like in 14, but it looks like that has changed. What Am I doing wronG?

Optodata, the magic sound app showed up like magic, wonder how PD found it?


Again thanks for your help.

THANKS, Optodata, it is working now with 411.70 after uninstalling 391.35.

PD14 got an other reprieve!!

Many thanks for all the inputs.

Gene


If I got PD18 would PD 14 remain independently, both w/o interfeering? What would PD 18 bring to the table?

Thanks Tomasec for the download instruction. Installed w/o problem but still cannot use the GPU to render 264 or 265 type videos.

Was looking at PD 18 on Amazon, hope that will work and the smartsound audio too.
Only found the rental 365 version on the Cyberlink web site.


Appreciate all the help, thanks

Eugene

Quote I had believed earlier that all nvidia drivers created after Dec 2019 were the dch type. This driver search page implies that the standard ones are still being made. It may be easier to go back or roll back to the previous driver easily by selecting the same type. See the attached screenshot.

Great, my Sunday evening project. Appreciate your help!!!

Gene


Well there is a problem, the 411.70 cannot be installed with the to-date window 10 version

May have to say good bye to PD14 and see what PD versions are available for permanent purchase.
I hung on to PD14 because of smart sound.

Gene
Quote The link in my first post will take you to the 411.70 driver.

If you insist on sticking with PD14, you will have to continually monitor which nVidia driver is installed as Windows will automatically try to update to a newer version. You should also keep the 411.70 installer in an easy to find location so you can run it when you need it.

Also, you may first have to uninstall the current nVidia driver using the Windows uninstaller, then reboot without being connected to the internet before you can install the older 411.70 version. If you boot with an internet connection, Windows is going to download and install the latest driver again and you'll be behind the 8-ball again.



Great, my Sunday evening project. Appreciate your help!!!

Gene
Quote I answered the "best driver" part of your question, but if you're having other problems we'd need to know some specifics about what you're seeing on your end.

For example, you can produce to AVC H.264 or HEVC H.265, but not what you wrote. The more accuate the description you can provide, the quicker we can try to figure things out.




Optodata, my head is still spinning from your fast response, Thanks!

You are correct, I have to render 264 or 265 with the CPU, used to do that with the video board and 10 times+ faster. I guess that a new GTX 1060 driver screwed it up. Now trying to find one that goes back far enough.

Gene
Hello all,
Had some hickups lately trying to render 4K in HEVC 264. Any idea?

Thanks

Eugene
Thanks both for the info.
I will look into it. So PD17 would be a good compromise? All projects and saved data would be transfered I assume. My 265 files are standard gopro 8 stuff.
My main concern is to screw up what is now a well operating PD14 editor. I would of course have HD:C clones and backups to go back to 14.

Thanks again

Gene
