You don't mention what the aspect ratio is and what PD is doing. You might try to set project aspect ratio to what it should be, drop clip in timeline, right click on clip and use the "Set Clip Attributes" > "Set Aspect Ratio..." to define what you think the clip is.

Thanks for the reply.
I may not have phrased the question the right way. Let me do it again and keep it simple.
When the vido is on the Timeline and in the PD monitor, it comes up stretched out. As mentioned, I've tried all the aspect ratios in the program and while they do change the aspect ratio, none of them render the video the right size. The video in the monitor is always too large. Maybe all I need to do is down size it, but I don't know how. Is there some way to "free form" re-size?

I hope this clarifies. I'm not an old hand at PD, but I have done a bunch of videos all with good results, but have never had this problem before.
Hi all:
I've imported a couple of .vob files into PD 19 and can't get the aspect ratio right. Have tried all the choices up in the menu but the video still comes up the PD monitor all out of size.
I even went so far as to change the file format from VOB to mp4 but the problem persists.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for replies
Hi:
Here's the problem. I split up a video into segments and was doing changes ( cropping and enhancements ) to the first segment in the clip. I was surprised to see that the changes made to the this first segment were automatically applied to the rest of the entire clip - even the cropping.
There's a tab in the "enhancement" box that asks "Apply to all" but I didn't click on that.

Is there a way to apply changes to a segment without it effecting the rest of the clip?

This is with PD 19

Quote The background is "black" because it's actually blank/empty/nonexistant.

If you want any kind of background, like an image, color board or video, simply place that on track 1 and add your title on track 2 so it will show on top/in front of your background content.

Hi All:
I'm having to do a lot of text intros in PD. When getting into the "title designer" the default background color is black.
I'd like to know how to change it to another color. I've looked in the Youtube videos and done a search in this PD forum but can't find out how.
I know that different backgrounds can be done and imported, but all I want to do now is just change the background color.

What you described is pretty much what I was doing but it's time consuming and I was hoping that there would be a faster & easier way of doing it.

But thanks for the reply.
Quote Depends a bit on what you want to save.
If it is the resulting video as part of the timeline, then you can produce a selection from the timeline by selecting this section with the yellow arrow-pointers. However, it is only possible to save a part in the time line with all tracks included within the selected start and end time. If you only want to save a cut of one (or more) tracks separately then unless you are able to unselect unwanted tracked before you produce a selection, there do not seem to be other ways.
If you are looking to save a selection on your timeline as a project, then the answer is NO, there is no function for that. What I do in those cases is save the project with a generic name, cut the surrounding and then save the separate bit, with the overall timeline still in place in the saved project. (You can of course all undo the cutting to restore the timeline.
The other way around may also be an option. If you have one or more selections separately saved as projects you can insert these projects as projects on the timeline. That of course should be possible in your workflow and requires some planning ahead.
Hope this is a bit clear. Let us know how you proceed.


Thanks for the reply
Hi All:

I presently have a video on the timline that I've made some cuts from. I'd like to know how to save/export them INDIVIDUALLY and not as a group. OR can this even be done?

Thanks for the reply.
Hi All:
I'm sure this question has been asked more than once before, but I can't find anyting about through the search.
Every time I render a video it ends up with the same title that was put in when the video was produced. It appears at the bottom of the video and last a few seconds.
Can this be prevented from happening? I'd like to have it where nothing shows up.

Thanks for replies
Never mind, it's working now. Hot stuff.
Hi all:

I'm trying to perform cuts on a clip I did some time ago in PD. The clip was rendered as an mp4.
I've gotten the clip down on the Timeline but can't make any cuts. The program is just not responding.
Am I overlooking something.

Thanks for replies
Hi all:
I've been doing some slide shows and short videos and the file name shows up at the bottom of the video for around 5 seconds when the vidio is first played. I would like to know how to stop this from happening.
I presume this has to be a setting of some sort. I tried using the Search to find out to fix this but no dice.
So, please let me know.

Thanks for replies
I'm having to reinstall Windows on the machine I use Power Director on.
I'd like to know the procedure for getting PD back up. I paid for PD 18 last April and have the key so please guide me through what has to be done. I remember that installing PD wasn't easy, so please provide enough detail.
Thanks

Hi All:
At times I need to convert mkv to mp4 so it works in PD. I have VLC but it's SLOW.
Can anyone reco a free converter that does the job with reasonable speed?

Thanks for replies
Hi All:
I'd like to find out how to move ALL the clips on the Timeline at the same time. I know how to move the clips individually, but need to do them ALL together so I can insert something at the beginning of the project..

Thanks for replies
Quote Alt and left or right arrows will nudge clips.

Thanks for the reply Jeff - and it works!
Hi All:
I'd like to know how, or if, clips can be moved on the Timeline in small delecate increments. Using the "hand" only results in jumps/spurts and there is no detailed control.
Now, I'm NOT talking about using the one frame at a time selector in the Preview window, just on the Timeline.

Thanks for replies
Hi all:
I'm pretty new on PD 18 so bear with me.
When workiing on the Timeline, little info boxes pop at the point of the cursor. They show the start/end time, blah, blah.
These get right in the way of the work where I can't see what I'm doing. How can this "feature" be turned off.
I've gone through Preferences and View and can't find any way to do it.
