  1. Thanks, Barry. I will do that for the most part. I still think some filtering capability on the file list would be helpful.
  2. I'm working with about 5000 images from which I want to create a 200 image slide show. I've gone thru the images with Adobe Bridge, and have rated them all. A rating of 3 means the image is suitable for presentation. I'd like to work with the original folder rather than copy a set for PTE, and I could do this if I could filter by rating, or if I could sort by name within descending rating. Are there any strong reasons I should copy my subset of high rated images to the show folder, rather than work with the original folder? Thanks for any thoughts.
  3. I renamed file and tried again, directing the convert to another folder, checked 30 minutes later, nothing happened. I then right clicked the image in the file list, and said convert. It went to the file convert window, and immediately gave an error. This is not an urgent matter for me. I normally just use images, but experimented with this video. Attaching file converter, and pte about.
  4. I did say convert, but now I'm thinking I should have waited a few minutes. The convert appeared to be finished in that nothing appeared to be happening, nothing greyed out, no hourglass, but I said convert to original folder, and I still just see the mp4 file there, not an additional avi file. I just now retried it, pointing to a separate folder, and nothing appears in that folder.
  5. My LG G4 phone produced this video file which I then dragged to Windows 10. It plays well there if I just double click it, but when dragged in as a pte video, has good sound, very jerky movement. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nN1tqQZ6xDZQY19bLKULfAmArDNsOJtU
  6. When I right click a keyframe, I would like an option to "create freeze keyframe". That would produce a slideable keyframe, who's only purpose is to mark a pause point. It could be slid anywhere, deleted as any keyframe. The effect of hitting it when that slide is playing is the same as the pause by hitting the space bar.
  7. I am talking about searching this forum for prior posts about youtube, best aspect ratio, etc by pte forum members. When I enter something in this forum's search box I no longer get hits on those arguments. I am creating it as an mp4 (pte HD Video) which I plan to load to youtube, but don't know if that is the best way to do it.
  8. I'm looking for best practices on uploading to youtube - a year or so ago, did the same thing and found a lot of helpful discussions in the forums. Now I search for youtube and get 1 hit??? Where did all the old stuff go? Any suggestions appreciated.
  9. Thanks to all of you for your very helpful responses. I didn't watch all of post 5 video 1st time around because by then I thought my source was already clipped and therefor unfixable. I tend to resist video tutorials unless I can't find info in written form - too impatient. I went back and viewed entire video, and plan to also view the basic tutorial. I do have one last thing to try. My original is a cd which I got from Amazon. I ripped it to my pc using Windows Media Player using the lossless wma format. Possibly Windows Media Player is the problem, so I can download the tracks from Amazon Cloud as mp3 then look at the cloud mp3 vs the mp3 I created from the wma file, and see if cloud version also has clipping. No more questions at this point but will let you know if Windows Media Player did the clipping during ripping.
  10. You are right. I went back to the source files, and looked at them with Audacity - they also are clipped. I converted the wma files to mp3 for pte to avoid the mixed type issue. That still leaves me with my 2nd question. Is there some visual indicator so that I can adjust one track's volume relative to another and see what I've done, or do I just keep playing back the tracks in question till it sounds right? Thanks again,
  11. Ah ha, choosing the file is not enough. One must attach it.
  12. First attempt to work with version 8. I have 3 audio tracks that are wma, and one that is mp3. The volumes are not the same - mp3 much lower volume. When I look at the audio waveform on the timeline, I see substantial clipping on the wma tracks. When I right click on a track in the waveform, and adjust the volume down, to say 20%, I don't see any change in the clipped waveform being displayed. I've attached a screen copy showing the clipping. The originals of the wma files are high quality uncompressed, and I am sure are not initially clipped. I don't hear the clipping in the pte playback, but my ears are not too great. So, Is clipping really going on? If so, what is the best way to get rid of it? Also, more generally, if I have tracks with different relative volumes, what is the best way to get them adjusted appropriately? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  13. Thanks, that was exactly what I needed to know. Used the brute force approach this time, but will remember your technique in the future.
