  1. Like most, I uusually opt for the ratio 16/9 of my 4K TV screen, which is also the ratio for the projector at my photo-club (when we can reconvene). Sometimes, it is 16/10 so that I do not need to crop too much my photos (which are taken at the ratio 4/3 = 1.33).
  2. Dave I cannot answer specifically the question, since my usage of Audacity is still that of a beginner. However, there is a feature for "Spectral Selection and Editing", with an example how to remove a "whistle" as explained in https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/spectral_selection.html
  3. You can automatically adjust the sound level ("normalize" the track) by using the free, open source, AUDACITY software from www.audacityteam.org/ It is a fantastic software for editing sound tracks, remove noise, rearrange parts of songs, change the duration of a song while keeping the same pitch, etc. Quite fun to use the many "sound effects" provided.
  4. Just plot the screen rectangle on a piece of paper and "insert" the two videos to fit the total height. It should then be easier to understand my "maths"...
  5. I meant to say that the video has been sized automatically by PTE so as to fit the total height of the view, which you will want to be 1080 pixels as a standard Full-HD screen when you "publish" the video at the end of the process. What I did was to draw a 16/9 rectangle (for the total view) and put the vertical dimension as being the "true pixels" of 848. Then I could easily compute the corresponding width for the overall rectangle, etc.
  6. Also, I would place the montage created in your Photo Editing program, as a background layer to the actual videos. This montage could be slightly wider that the dimension that I have computed, to prevent any voids.
  7. My computed gap dimensions yield an aspect ratio of 848/547 = 1.550. Your trial-and-error geometry comes to a ratio 1080/680 = 1.588. Not too far. Do not forget that your two clips are not 1080 tall, but only 848 and that they are kind of "stretched" to fill the total height of the view. And the gap you found to be 680 x 1080 is in fact fitting the total available height of 848 (your video clip), hence a reduced width of 680x 848/1080= 533.9 (close to my figure of 547).
  8. Hi Xenofex2 Your mobile phone videos have an aspect ratio of 848 / 480 = 1.76667 = 15.90 / 9, i.e. not quite 16/9. Hence your computational problem. For your project with the 16/9 aspect ratio, the number of pixels does not really matter for the geometrical construction, only the proportions do. So just decide that your screen has an effective pixel size of 848 vertical. Therefore the screen width with the 16/9 aspect ratio has a dimension of 848 *16/9 = 1507 pixels (rounded values). The two videos have each a width of 480 pixels, hence the middle gap has a width of 1507 - (2 * 480) =
  9. Hello Gaga If you have not yet followed the good advice from Rosy, as soon as you have all the necessary files (photos, videos, sound tracks) for your slideshow, you can go to the "File" menu and "Create backup in ZIP". It is a very efficient and easy way to create an archive. Highly recommended.
  10. Hello! I have designed kind of a "puppet on a string" with arms and legs attached to the body around a pivot point, so that I could use the "Rotate" animation feature centred around the attachment point, not the object centre. Not that easy to achieve the exact pivot point. I have tried to use the "Grid" option in Objects & Animation, but I did not find that too easy. So yes, some kind of measurement tool would be useful, also one that would allow to get the grid coordinate of any chosen point.
  11. Thank you Shirley for raising that question, which bothered me too; I'm happy that Igor will add the feature in the future. Note that I can choose the thumbnail in Adobe/Lightroom ("Set poster frame").
  12. What are the chosen parameters? I suggest you try first a low definition of say 800x600 pixels, Low Quality; See whether that works? If so, gradually increase the quality settings.
  13. The <Print Screen> key works fine with me. Maybe you want to extract a single image from any video recording? If you have the Adobe Lightroom software, you can easily use the "capture frame" feature within the Library module. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/video-lightroom.html "To create a JPEG still image from the current frame, click the Frame button and choose Capture Frame."
  14. Hi Rosy In actual facts, I have also been using the "Print Screen" key on my keyboard for quite a while, and it takes a copy of the full screen. Comining the <ALT> or <ALT GR> key with the <Print Screen> key, I get a shot of the selected (active) window on my screen. Since I have DropBox active on my computer, the files are automatically saved as PNG files on my Dropbox folder (subfolder: screen capture).
  15. Good morning It seems you are looking for a "screen capture" tool. If you have a high definition screen (lots of pixels), you'll get a decent (still) picture. If your're running MS/Windows10, here what I have found (for instance): <<Windows 10 is the first Windows version to have a built-in screenshot feature. Users on older versions had to rely on the Snipping tool which wasn’t very convenient to use. This missing feature was compensated for via third-party apps. Windows 10, at present, has a very basic screenshot feature. If you tap Win+PrntScr, Windows 10 will capture
