Shotcut 1 month 3 weeks ago pipso_facto

This is currently my go to video editor, but only because of problems using NCH VideoPad.

Initial impression: it looks familiar with a timeline and a project area to drop clips etc.

The main problem is that it doesn't work like other similar-looking editors. If you have a video on the timeline and want to drop another in front of it, it "overwrites" rather than pushing the existing clip up the timeline. So you end up having to Google how to do the basics and watch a few tutorial videos to do anything. It's a frustrating learning curve, if only the user interface worked like all the others!

Having mastered it, it does a lot.

Some of the other oddities compared to other video editors:

* You don't need to put all the clips, photos etc into the project area and then drag to the timeline. They can be opened, previewed and dragged directly to the timeline

* You can produce an output video directly from the project area (known as a playlist) without using the timeline at all

* Deleting from the timeline by default doesn't close the gap - this has actually turned out to be useful, but not how other editors work. It is easy to close the gap later or there is a setting to control this (but does that setting do something else undesirable, I haven't found out)

* Creating consistent looking titles requires a bit of effort as by default the font size is as large as will fit the text in the text box resulting in different size titles for different pieces of text. This can be fixed but it takes experimentation to get the size of text looking good, it would be nice if the defaults looked good out of the box.

Overall it's not quite as polished as some but is better than a lot of open source.

It's one of the few pieces of software that uses my laptop's AMD Radeon graphics - it gets used for the video preview in the upper part of the screen (the video you see when you press play in the editor). It doesn't get used for final video file rendering however.

VideoPad Video Editor 1 month 3 weeks ago pipso_facto

I used the free version of VideoPad for home use and it never prevented me from exporting video saying it was a paid feature. I did not experience any stability issues.

This would be my go to video editor if it weren't for problems exporting the finished video, sometimes. When I initiated the export process, sometimes it would finish very quickly - appear in the completed videos list but it would produce a very small useless output file, less than 1kbyte. It looks like a bug. When I hit this problem I couldn't find any workaround to make it export properly: tried other output formats and various small tweaks to no avail.

So having put in several hours effort editing a video and then finding it won't export is a major problem even if it works the rest of the time.

It's a shame as this is a very accomplished piece of software. It works fairly intuitively, very familiar to someone who's used other video editing software.

I do still like its stabilize - subjectively on my videos it was marginally better than the stabilize in Shotcut which is my go to video editor (and VirtualDub which I also tested). VideoPad lets you Stabilize from the project area and it produces a stabilized video file directly from there without using the problematic export function.

I suspect that VideoPad's titles are better than Shotcut's but I had already given up with VideoPad before I had a chance to try them.

Apart from not exporting video files properly, here are my other criticisms of VideoPad:

* In most video editors, there is a timecode representing the cursor position on the timeline in the form: "hh:mm:ss:frame_num". The last number goes 0-29 or 0-24 depending on the frame rate. In VideoPad the last 3 digits are milliseconds rather than frame number. Takes a bit of getting used to.

* When adding a video to the project area, it can take a while "indexing video". Then there's a grey/blue progress line and high CPU usage, presumably while it creates a temporary preview file.

* It also uses green progress lines on the edited video in the final timeline probably to show how far it's got in creating a preview of the edited timeline. Again that can take a while to go all green. CPU usage is high while it's doing this.

* I installed the free version and confirmed on each startup that I was using it for personal use. After a couple of weeks it told me the trial was coming to an end soon. Then it told me some features would be disabled unless I purchased it. Finally I'm back to confirming on each startup that I'm using it for personal use. I don't know which, if any, features have been disabled. I was never informed I was using a trial version when I first installed it or subsequently. I don't mind if the free version is limited but it would be nice to know what the limitations are. I can still use multiple video tracks in this "trial expired" free version.

OpenShot 1 month 3 weeks ago pipso_facto

This is one of the first video editors I tried.

This is a typical open source product: it's a bit unintuitive and lacking in polish.

In one video I added my own soundtrack from an mp3 file and found that in the output video, the audio had a lot of strange artefacts at the end rather than a nice clean finish.

It seems light on features.

I have found it useful to create a lower bitrate version of an existing video. It did it a lot faster than a general purpose video format converter I use.

Best Free Video Editing Program 1 month 3 weeks ago pipso_facto

I've just been testing some video editors so I thought I'd share my findings. Prior to this I did a small amount of video editing using Adobe Premiere Elements on Windows XP and Pinnacle Studio on Windows Vista. I'd describe myself as an advanced beginner - I've got a reasonable idea of what video editors should do but less knowledge of the fancy bells and whistles. Typically what I've been doing is simple cuts/deletes and adding titles and music. More recently I've been getting into stabilization, small rotates to level the horizon, zooming a bit and putting 2 video tracks together side by side to compare before and after stabilization.

Over the last month I've tried these editors and I'd rank them in this order for my purposes:

Shotcut
Video Editor - it's part of Microsoft Windows 10, scroll down the start menu to V to find it
NCH VideoPad
OpenShot
VirtualDub - tested its stabilization capabilities

Conclusion: all video editors have problems! I've ended up doing different bits of my videos in different editors. Eg I like the Windows Video Editor titles - very easy and quick to get something that looks good. I like VideoPad's stabilization (to me it's subjectively slightly better than Shotcut and VirtualDub, but there's not much in it) and Shotcut is the most reliable at producing a usable output video file from the various video clips, photos and music.

I used the free version of VideoPad for home use and it never prevented me from exporting video saying it was a paid feature. I did have problems exporting video for other reasons though. I did not experience any stability issues.

I've put my specific comments under the review of each editor I tried.

VirtualDub is not listed - I noticed some comments on it so it was probably in the list once and I can see why it was removed - it's very bare bones and doesn't work with MP4 out of the box, although I found a codec to solve that. When I was researching stabilization I found some forum comments elsewhere that said VirtualDub's is very good. To do stabilization in VirtualDub I downloaded "deshaker" from a site in Sweden - it hasn't been updated since 2014. Deshaker is very configurable and I followed the simple instructions. It did not do any better than the stabilization in VideoPad or Shotcut.

As there's no review of the built in Windows Video Editor, here are my comments on that:

Windows 10 Video Editor

It comes as standard with Windows 10 and is implemented as a "modern" Windows app (it's actually a part of Microsoft Photos that also comes with Windows 10). Video Editor looks a lot like how I remember Microsoft Movie Maker on XP, although I only ever looked at that and didn't produce any video output with it.

Ease of use is the key here. It doesn't have the multi track timeline of many other video editors. Instead video clips, titles, photos etc are put onto a storyboard. It's easy to split a video clip into 2 sections or trim the start and end. You can also add an overall soundtrack of background music.

It gives you some control over the output resolution but not bitrate which ends up high with correspondingly large files. When I first started using it I put the finished video into OpenShot and re-encoded there to get smaller lower bitrate video files.

The location of project files and temporary files is all hidden. When you start it shows you a list of projects you've saved plus you can start a new one. This is fine for what it is - a simple and easy to use video editor, rather than something powerful and serious where you might want to take backups of project files.

It's similar in capabilities to iMovie on the iPad. It would be great for a holiday video: titles, photos and video clips plus music all edited and looking good with minimal effort. Video Editor allows photos to look a bit less static by having them move/zoom a little giving a Ken Burns effect.

I am trying to picture a scenario where one has a file needing unzipped, but without any sort of device access.

You need internet access and a device, and, some devices have no unzipping capability (for various reasons), and some devices are restricted, you can't install software on them. Libraries are an example - the local library doesn't allow installation of software and the software that's available for use is limited, so an online alternative is needed for some activities.

I usually Bandzip because it will unzip the file and open the folder in Windows Explorer where the unzipped file is.

Evernote is better at adding information of all sorts from around the web. It has a scanner and supports a more file types. It's interface is less user friendly and cluttered since it's been adding features piecemeal over the years.

Notion is stonger at organization. It supports long form structured notes that can be nested and placed in hierarchies (great if you like to structure notes).

Notion has database and table support (think Google Docs + Google Sheets), code highlighting, allows comments insides notes, & has great collaboration/sharing features. It has more expansive editing, you can write in Markdown, use keyboard shortcuts, and switch views. It has a gallery view for photos and videos.

Notion syncs all your devices for free and offers all features free for personal use. Evernote has paid plans to access features other than note taking. As far as I can tell, there are no limits on things like note sizes or uploading and adding material. Evernote's free plan has a 60MB limit.
Notion has a page showcasing uses here:
https://www.notion.so/personal

Both are great for note taking. Evernote is a mature product and is focused on note taking.
Notion launched in 2016 as a more fully featured product with an emphasis on creating and organizing information.

It's actively developed and responsive to community requested features
.

Both are good products, using one or the other is more a matter of what you need.

In my training as a telephone tech I was told to do the job you were assigned and respect and ignore the customer. Sent on a job to install a black, cv set in a garden apt. After constant knocking, a guy in pajamas let me in and told me he wanted the phone on the right side of the bed. He jumped into bed with his wife/girl friend and preceded to make love (while giggling). I tried to ignore them and was lucky to find my dial tone and a 42a block at the location that the customer wanted. Job took about half-an-hour and I let myself out.

Many of the tools I've seen that do this type of thing don't have descriptions, or descriptions are minimal. Winaero Tweak has excellent descriptions and more screen shots and information on the site. I'm not an expert but off the top of my head I didn't see anything in Privatezilla that would break Windows 10 or interefere with functioning. Any changes are easily undone using the "Revert" feature.

I agree with setting a restore point (a backup is better) but you'd have to enable System Restore, it's disabled by default in Windows 10. People who have been using System Restore for years and counting on automatic restore points who don't know it's disabled are out of luck.

I was hoping that this card unlike Paypal and Debit Cards, if you authorize a Merchant (make a purchase) to claim funds from your balance, the Merchant has 30 days to claim said funds. The funds will be deducted from your available balance for the whole 30 days even if the Merchant informs you after 3 days that the purchase has been cancelled due to ongoing "lack of stock" problems or he doesn't like the color of your Moped. I've had it happen twice in the same month. For $253.43 NIJ Certified Ballistic Panels and $153.00 for computer parts, cancelled after 5 days. Both purchases 3 days apart. Agreement states must hold in Escrow for 30 Days. I don't know if Credit Cards act differently since Credit could be issued at any time, I'm guessing. These seem to be a bit safer than a normal card but Merchants can still exceed your preset limits and a few other things I was reading in their info. Looks like Merchants were well represented when these Laws were drawn up. Customer representation, not so much.

Privacy is not a bank or a credit card company, it provides a virtual card number for transactions.
It doesn't hold any funds and transactions are between the merchant and your funding source.

If I remember correctly their TOS transaction limits are S1,000 per transaction and $3,000 a month but that can be changed by contacting them.

Not exactly. Just like Privacy, Paypal is neither Bank or C/C Co.but Paypal is the one that issues the "Authorization Reversal Notification" to the Merchant if after 30 days from Authorization Date the funds have not been captured by the Merchant. Paypal at no time ever actually has hands on your money.
When I read Privacy's disclaimer about Merchants ability to exceed Customer's preset limits and Privacy could not stop them even though in some cases it was illegal, Privacy was not a Court of Law. I thought, so much for that false sense of security.
I read the (full) ToS but I think that was in the ToS and the FAQ section (along with the max limits of $2,000/$4,000) which is larger than it first looks due to each section expanding. That's where I found out that they are Legally bound (like Paypal) to wait the full 30 days regardless whether the Merchant cancelled or not.
I will go and find where I read the Merchant/card limit disclaimer.

What about FoxClocks extension of Firefox?
I find it very easy to use and customize, and it's quickly available if you have Firefox already open (as I normally do all the time).

Nothing wrong with it at all, if that's what works for you. I have several different browsers open at once, which is why I prefer something that works across all browsers platforms and that doesn't require an addon or extension.

Enjoy 50 Hours of Nature Sounds from BBC Earth 1 month 4 days ago Festeron

While these are quite stunning, each video one is 30 minutes long looped 20 times to make 10 hours. A short logo is inserted between them. They are not 10 hours of original footage.

Enjoy 50 Hours of Nature Sounds from BBC Earth 1 month 4 days ago rhiannon

Yep I mentioned in the article that I didn't listen or watch any all the way through (I don't have the speed or bandwidth to so) and that they could be looped since the videos are so long. Thanks for paying attention to how long the loops were and mentioning it, I appeciate it.

I'm happy you like it. I love DeviantArt, I've been a member for twelve years. I've occasionally posted wallpaper from there. Sometimes an author will remove things or close down their account, and resolutions are hit or miss. The wallpaper tag and topic areas are a good place for wallpapers.

Best Free Software Update Monitor 1 month 2 days ago shannf

FileHippo App Manager is no longer supported. SUMo has no direct links (even in the paid version).

Patch My PC has direct downloads with silent installation and a good list of programmes. It is clearly the best choice for Windows

Use This Free Tool to Convert PDFs into Online Forms 1 month 1 day ago Fairportfan

Not REALLY interested in giving anonymous strangers full access to data of that sort.

{Back in '79 when The Source suddenly appeared, based out of McLean VA, a friend pointed out that we really didn't know much about it, but that Langley VA is in that area, and he could think of one organisation that probably had lots of excess computer capacity in Langley that might be interested in looking at random private data...

Best Free Screen Session Recorder 1 month 1 day ago risingphoenix

Writing in 2020, I believe the area of screen session recordings has moved on A LOT since this comparison was made in 2016. I tried Icecream (given in the article as having no time limits) and found a 5min recording limit and a very shaky output file. Searching the web I went on to discover obsproject.com. This is an excellent screen recorder without time limits or watermark. What is probably a good 2020 summary of the free software available can be found here: https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/the-best-free-screen-recorder

Auto-monitoring software installs looks good, which is a feature that free version of IOBit also provides. Would like to test it later, however the program hasn't been updated for nearly a decade.
