  1. I have two folders on an external hard drive that I use for Studio 10. Studio 10 Projects I use to store my source files. Studio 10 Presentations I use for my Studio 10 pte files. There has been a sudden change in the way the Studio 10 Presentation folder works.. I had just downloaded an update to Studio 10 so I don't know if the change was due to the update, or if it was something that happened in my computer. Previously, both the Presentations folder and the Projects folders worked the same. When I clicked on the folder in the tree the file subfolders would be displayed in the Panel. Th
  2. This post isn't about "Vibration," but it is about modifiers, animation and motion. No particular problem, but a couple of questions, and perhaps a suggestion. My first question is about a motion problem I posted about previously. It had to do with the simple flight path of a swooping eagle. (See attached picture). I finally solved my problem, with some help from the forum, with four keyframes and the animation settings arranged in a shallow parabola. Only after reading about modifiers in the online user guide and watching Barry Beckham's tutorial did I begin remembering ProShow modifiers. It
  3. That's a LOT of reading. Understand that I'm a new Studio 10 user, and used to thumbing through the pages of a printed User Guide. An online User Guide is quite different. The Search function can be very helpful if you know what you're searching for. Call it by the wrong name and what you find may not be very helpful. In this case, I was lucky, and my search for "Modifiers" yielded some very helpful information . . . and Barry Beckham's tutorial was excellent. In comparison with ProShow modifiers, I think Studio 10 modifiers, once you understand what you're looking at, are easier to follow. I
  4. I also have a modifier question, but I think the answer to Harbrinar's question may be they Key. I just don't know how to do what was suggested. I'm trying to animate a waterfall. That also is a vibration. ProShow had a Modifier option also, but I think it worked different from the Studio 10 Modifiers. They had an example of a dog shaking off water. IMO a water fall would work similarly, just at a slower frequency. My question is, how do I get to the place where I can set the amplitude and repeats of the modifier?
  5. Thanks to the help and a couple of critical comments from forum members, this is no longer a problem for me. As happened so often in my career (when I was working. I'm now retired), I felt like I was being dragged, kicking and screaming, in directions I didn't want to go. That may seem overly dramatic, but nevertheless true. Rather than use text pages, I now make voice recordings to support my graphics. I didn't think my hoarse voice would allow me to use voice recordings, but it did, and my slide show is now a documentary with me narrating. One of the problems I encountered was in using
  6. Yes, I must have clicked accidentally clicked on the little squiggly orange icon. I didn't even see it. I HAD seen the "Clear Audio Keypoints" in Preferences. Thanks Goddi.
  7. My audio keypointsin Timeline suddenly disappeared . . . well almost suddenly. I have been making recordings from a recorder in which the microphones were too sensitive. I have been adjusting the resulting audio levels down using keypoints. I finally found a way to record at a lower level. I put the recorded audio on my Timeline. Now I don't have any audio keypoints. I've checked Preferences. Now that I'm recording at an appropriate level, I don't need the audio keypoints, but I should have them in case I do. Did I somehow get something set wrong?
  8. No, I didn't know about the relationship between Zoom and the number of lines of text. I'll have to go back and study it using this information. Update 4-24-2020: I have used the online User’s Guide. Frankly, I find it hard to use. It’s not the same as a printed user’s guide. It’s true that it’s easier to update and keep current. It has a lot of topics, some of which are for previous versions of Studio. That would be less of a problem if I knew what it was I wanted to do. I don’t even know what all Studio 10 is capable of. From my perspective, the problem is that it’s a User’s G
  9. I am working on a project that has a lot of text pages interspersed with image pages. For the most part the text properties are easy to use and intuitive. But I find it odd that there seems to be no easy way to set the font size and keep it constant between slides. The font size can be controlled either manually in the display or with the Zoom control, but while the Zoom is more precise, it often has to be set to different values to keep the font size constant between slides. In Slide 2, the font size is set to 58. In slide 7, the font size of the header is larger than the text. Yet the Zoom v
  10. Paul: I had originally grabbed the end and dragged it to the left to limit the sound bite to the desired area of the slide (the wagon traveling down the stone steps). The problem I experienced was that when the wagon reached the level ground, there seemed to be an echo of the sound bite at a lower volume. One of the things I tried was to grab the end of the sound bite and drag it to the right (exposing more of the source sound) and using the audio key points to abruptly lower the volume of the sound bite to 0 precisely when the wagon reached level ground. I thought this had fixed my problem, a
  11. Update 4/22/2020: Problem fixed. I'm attaching a new screen print of my timeline. If there is an "echo," it's so low I can't hear it. My thanks to those in the Forum who worked with me on this. One note for others who may experience this problem.: I had just finished another project that had two helicopter scenes and two airplane scenes with sound effects. They did not have this problem. The difference was that those sounds tapered off as the aircraft passed. This sound bite required an abrupt end. . . . Uh oh! I spoke too soon. The echo is still there, but it's now occurring later. Previously
  12. I looked in project options, and I found nothing suspicious. The music start time is 0:00:000. the duration is 2:27:905. No fade in or fade out. The sound bite offset is 0:58:850. The start time is 0:00:000 and the duration is 0:02:050. No fade in or fade out.
  13. Jill: I've done all of that except the screen grab of the Timeline, but it's showing the music track at the same level as before the sound bite. Adjustment of the sound bit in time and level . . . couldn't be easier or more precise. It's just that the music is causing the sound bite to have an "echo."
  14. Update: Wondering if the sound bite had crosstalked into the music track, I adjusted the music volume to 0. No "echo." Corrupt music file? I replaced the music file on the music track with a different file. Same problem as with the previous music file. The music plays up to and including the sound bite. At the end of the sound bite, no sound, even thought the music track is shown on the Timeline.
  15. There is a good reason why I was not hearing the "echo" as I added frames back to my project. After the sound bit plays I don't have ANY sounds, even though my music track is visible on the Timeline. My music track plays, the sound bit plays along with the music track. At the end of the sound bite, NOTHING on the audio Tracks plays. It's as if I suddenly clicked the MUTE button.
