  1. Well I finally figured it out. It's certainly different from the last time I did it. For those who are wondering, I did what I should have done in the first place & read the on-line help. Scroll down the L/h list of subjects until you come to video, video click that & go to adding video, it's all to do with Single Video Clip & Master Video Track. I blame my eyes, the print is a little small & I didn't pick up the difference between SINGLE VIDEO CLIP & MASTER VIDEO TRACK, my bad Rosy.
  2. I've done this years ago, but can't seem to get my head around how it works in the latest version of PTE. I'm in the middle of making a show, originally I started with a blank slide but couldn't add a video clip & make it carry on running past the first actual slide. I then tried using the video clip as the first slide & adding picture slides & text to it, managed that OK. Then came towards the end of the first video clip where I wanted to add a second video clip, but I can't make the 2nd clip run. I can see the reduced opacity first frame but that just sticks there. I've added a s
  3. Hi Tom Thanks for suggesting a possible fix. However, I went through all that with the Panasonic chat guy. I posted the problem on another couple of sites & the most plausable IMO is this suggestion "The general position/orientation of an articulatable LCD screen may get detected by magnets and magnetic switches. If either gets dislodged (the magnet being the more likely candidate since it is not wired), the LCD will not switch its orientations in the expected positions.". I'm now reconciled to either put up or shut up. We have two other Panasonics, so we aren't short of c
  4. Hi Rosemary Thanks for your comments on the show. I asked the question about the camera in 3 different sources, spent 10 minutes with Panasonics chat but as yet haven't found a solution. Panasonic could only come up with an address in London to send it for repair. At the moment we are not using our cameras to a great extent, so my thoughts are to put up with it. We have 4 other sources to take pictures with. Kind Regards Rosy Cheeks.
  5. You may have read earlier on another thread, I dropped one of our cameras which has damaged the viewing screen. Luckily, I was able to download the images I took. This is another 90% video production so it's too big to go on SSC. My partner & I have the same birthday week with a years differnce. We booked this some time ago. Luckily the weather wasn't bad. One of us has memory problems & the other mobility problems. Luckily our eldest daughter came along to help us through & pay for the fish & chip lunch. The show is just over 5 min's & can be seen on vimeo. The link is
  6. Went out on our first serious photo shoot since before Christmas to Martin Mere wetlands bird sanctuary. I was on a mobility scooter with 2 camera bags, coats & a handbag. I had my Panasonic FZ330/331 on a tripod as I was shooting video, between shots I collapsed the tripod, the set it across my knees until I reached the next shot (the otters), as they only came out at feeding time I was rushing to get some pics & the tripod wasn't fully extended, as I moved backwards, the tripod & camera fell over, landing on tarmac on the rubberised edge of the camera. I checked the camera over &
  7. Audacity has a beat detector unde Analise. Rosy Cheeks.
  8. Juddering scrolling text was an old chestnut with PTE, you may not see a difference in scrolling one line of text, but try scrolling a full page. It works for me & always has. Could be something to do with hardware acceleration? Mine is off permanently. Rosy.
  9. As an add on, when you set text to scroll either right to left visa versa or up or down, got to the properties tab in the objects & animation screen, at the top right you will see a minus 100 setting, sharper smoother, change this to 200 + which will make the text flow smoother. Cheers Rosy Cheeks
  10. Paul I see a lot of video clips on Youtube, almost 70% of them have been taken in portrait mode, then they try to stretch them to fill a lamdscape mode by either showing a stretched version as a background with the original overlaid on top, or a semi stretched version as the main image, either way they look a mess, maybe JJB45 will let us know? Rosy.
  11. Hi Paul That wasn't mentioned. Not sure why someone would want to rotate a video clip in the main window when it's so easy to do it as I said? Cheers Rosy.
  12. Hi JJB45 Rotation of a video clip is available as in the procedure for a still pic' Highlight your clip in the row on the bottom of your working showscreen, go to the Objects & Animation tab, that sould open the screen where you animate your clip, see my screen shot. Regards Rosy
  13. Once more I find myself unable to walk for any distance, which for a photographer, is not good. Now we are in Summer & a significant birthday approaching, my partner has booked a day at a local wildlife sanctuary Martin Mere. I decided I needed a mobility scooter to be sure of enjoying the day. So I bought a new machine from Ebay, (that's another story). This weekend was sunny so I tried attaching one of my cameras to the scooter & take a trip around my locality. I set the camera (so I thought) to record a fast motion movie, but it didn't turn out that way. When I downloaded it fr
  14. IMO Normalise in Audacity would not equalise separate clips, normalise to to reduce clipping. There is an noise reduction setting in Audacity but when I've tried it I wasn't very successful. The way I did it was to select all the tracks at the same time & use the noise reduction feature. But it didn't give an even sound. Another was is to set each track to the same DB level using the volume sliders, but this is hit & miss. You reall need to play your finshed track & note where the problems are then tweak each one, a laborious business. Rosy.
  15. New wireless mouse & keyboard installed. After asking for more detailed info on how to delete the offending up-date, received this- When you get to the update history page, above recovery options click on the uninstall updates link on your screen (highlighted in my screenshot) this will then bring you to another window select the required update then click uninstall. You should then pause updates for a week or so and wait for MS to release a fix. To pause updates go back to the windows update page and choose pause updates Which I have now done. Still haven't addressed the p
  16. Thanks Tom Only just seen your reply. Since my first post I asked the same question on the AV Forums PC forum & got this reply (The most recent cumulative update KB5001330 has caused various problem such as boot loops BSODs slow running etc. If this is the update that preceded your problems I would uninstall it and wait for MS to issue a fix. You can uninstall the update by going to Start>settings>update and security>update history.) I tried that but chickened out part way. I did get this message while trying- (NEW 4/13/21 REMINDER Microsoft removed the Mic
  17. Had an accident few days ago when I spilled somethink sticky on my wireless keyboard which caused a number of keys to stick down. I ordered a new wireless keyboard & mouse & plugged in my spare HP wired keyboard. This morning on my browser there was a note about MS problems with W!0 which had been present from day 1, but had been acknowledged by MS 2 weeks ago, but the patch wasn't in auto up dates & had to be requested. Then my new k/board & mouse arrived so I plugged in the transmitter & unplugged in the HP keyboard. Some time later I put the PC to sleep, which I usually
  18. Hi Tom Not sure my speakers are at fault, the music tracks from my last 2 shows were from a 10 year old storage HD, one was a WAV & the sound effects mono WAV. Maybe they are getting rusty, like me. With the NVIDIA card selected the speakers were silent & can't see any way of plugging the speakers into the card. So, working on the theory of "if it aint broke, don't fix it" I'll leave things as they are. Found something called spatial sound, but seems this is for headphones? added screen shot. Cheers Rosy
  19. Thanks Tom, I'm on the case. Why I thought my current speakers were getting worn out, the last 2 shows I made the sound quality & volume was poor. Then today & was messing with the sounds on my PC & found I wasn't using the Nvidia sound card. So I've just re-configured it & tested the speakers with the test sounds & they sound OK. Will test it with a show tomorrow, too late now. Night Night Rosy
  20. Hi Tom I watched the YT video, well portions that I thought I needed to. The speakers were eventually connected to a smart phone not a PC. I then did a YT search to look for connecting wireless speakers to a PC. Eventually, I got this one, How to connect Bluetooth speaker with desktop Computer Without Bluetooth USB Adapter✅ | Som Tips - YouTube . The video was very hard to follow (for me) & the process looks beyond my understanding. So I'm rapidly going off wireless speakers. I seem to remember in the dim & distant past having a pair of USB speakers that by passed the sound card &
  21. Not wanting to hi-jack Paul's thread, but continuing in the same vein. I mentioned in my posts in this thread that my Locitec speakers were getting long in the tooth & was thinking of replacing them. I've used Logitec products for a long time & always been happy with them. So thinking I may be able to de-clutter my desk where my PC & monitor are mounted, I looked at their "wireless" offerings. I've always thought wireless meant no connection between the PC & the speakers, however, reading the manual for the Logitec Z207 speakers, it appears they have a 3.5mm jack which ha
  22. Hi Paul again. Did you get any further with your speaker? I've just been back onto the makers site & downloaded the users instructions, these are in German & English. I'm a relative newcomer to Wireless Lan & Bluetooth, but what I read seems similar to instructions I've used for my cameras, gimbal & a security camera about "pairing" in Bluetooth. Not sure about WLAN. I've attached a copy of the users guide to this post, maybe someone with more knowledge about the subject can fathom out what's happening. Regards Rosy. BREEZE_1__2.pdf
