  1. It seems that I have an intellectual deficit
  2. Remark from an old mathematician: The discussion has reached a state where logic is left behind. Posts will become longer and longer without adding anything substantial. Sometimes I like this kind of discussion, but not in a foreign language (too tedious). We could open a topic in the German section of this forum ... By the way: Photopia and DaVinci Resolve seem to offer blending modes. But perhaps the designers may all be idiots ...
  3. Did you see this: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/windows-8-1-compatability.html Added later: This is an old article. The German version showed a newer date.
  4. Thanks for your lesson on digital images, but there is no need for that. By the way, I like the way you create montages in Photoshop. The question one may ask is: How many PTE users will apply your techniques? You have called this topic "The Third Image". I don't see much correlation between your externally created montages and the so called "Third Image". In my opinion, this kind of image automatically appears when blending together images, and such a (virtual) image can look good, or perhaps not so good. In my example, Alpa-Blending does a rather bad job. In this situation, if there were "Screen" at hand in PTE, I could create a nice Third Image on the screen/monitor, on the fly, without doing any unnecessary work in an external image editor. As I said above, I like your montages, and I know a lot of fine AV productions that use similar techniques. But there is a disadvantage, as well. The montages are static. Wouldn't it be fine to have blending options in PTE which could be applied to animated images?
  5. 1. We may look at an example. There are 2 images that are (to some extent) complementary in brightness (first row). 2. The second row shows 2 mixes. On the left: a mix using the blending mode "Screen". This mode is regarded as the digital analogue of blending photographic slides (additive mix on a screen). On the right: Mix of the images with normal "Alpha-Blending" (both images contribute 50%). The version using "Screen" looks significantly better! 3. In the third row we see a mix using Alpha-Blending while the transparency of second image is controlled using a mask (shown on the left). 2 Images 2 Mixes: Blending Mode "Screen" and "Alpha-Blending. The Screen-Version (left hand side) looks better. Mix: Alpha-Blending with Mask
  6. You are not the only one has asked for this feature A (little) disadvantage of modern AV programs is that they implement the dissolve using alpha-blending (which is a weighted arithmetic mean value). So without using masks you cannot achieve effects that we had when blending photographic slides, where we had two projectors and an additive mix on the screen. The blending mode "Screen" gives us an effect that is (to some extent) similar to classical blending. Sometimes, I would like to have in PTE
  7. But only if you choose the right settings
  8. What is the colour profile that is used by your monitor, is it AdobeRGB? An sRGB image typically looks oversaturated on an AdobeRGB monitor when using an application without colour management. Lightroom and Photoshop are colour managed, while PTE 8 is not. Here, the colour profile of the images and the profile of the monitor should coincide.
  9. A small enhancement can be achieved by making the animations smooth. My problem with this animation is the strange perspective that I do not like that much. Modified_Cube_Transition.zip
  10. This features has been discussed for some time. It is a pity that is not contained in V10. Let's hope for the future
  11. I have 3 examples where I can see the problem. The new test version solves these problems.
  12. I created the claps with a USB-Mic in Audacity (version 2.3.3). The mp3 file has been exported from Audacity. I noticed this problem when I used V10 to open a show created in V9, and which runs fine in V9. The problem happened with an mp3 file exported from Audacity (2017), containing a mix of edited pieces from an Audio-CD. Attachment: Media-Info of this mp3 clip. In both cases I used the option "Joint Stereo" which normally works well for me. Diving_Down_Deep_bearb--MediaInfo.txt
  13. It seems that choosing long start times for audio clips will cause time shifts in PTE 10, while PTE 9 shows a nice behaviour. You may look at the attached example project, which contains an audio clip with a start time of about 4 minutes. 1) Open the attached project in Version 9 first. Have a look at the transition points and at the audio peaks in the upper audio track. Run the show in the preview or in the Mini-Player. You should see and hear what you will expect. The 2 colour changes and the 2 claps show up at the same time. Close without saving. 2) Now open the attached project in Version 10. Again, have a look at the transition point and at the audio peaks in the upper audio track. Run the show in the preview or in the Mini-Player. In Version 10, the colour changes and the claps do not come together. The claps come too early. In order to have colour changes and claps at the same time, you have to mute the upper audio track and unmute the lower audio track. In the lower track, the peaks in the wave are far away from the transition points. 4Minutes_2Claps_01.zip
  14. From the system requirements for PTE V10: Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7, but 64-bit only.
