  1. Hi Peter If your need is just to print the names of files inside a PTE project folder you can try this useful freeware you will find on internet : Cathy Daniel
  2. It depends on the kind of AV show we are speaking about. If there is no interest for the spectator, even if the sound track is good 2mn is too long ! You're right, that is the reason why I said, that I did not try to make an exe file but PTE works perfectly creating an HD video. So to answer your question 9,14Go corresonds to the total size of the project folder including all components (photos, pictures, audio and video clips) I used within this project. For those who want to make some kind of lecture like "Connaissance du monde" mixing different digital components, PTE is a very good choice. But I agree, in this case PTE is no longer the right choice for the product name, PTE/HD should be better. See the dedicated thread on this subject. Daniel
  3. Just for information, For the 18th birthday of my grand son, I ve made (only for a family purpose !) a report of all the souvenirs that all family members had gathered about him. I did not try to make an exe file but I created an HD video of one hour duration. Everybody expected it was even a bit longer... I built it up thanks to PTE 9.0.18 : 66 video-clips (most of them where AVCHD shots converted to avi by PTE video converter + mkv + mpeg + mp4 ; total = 7,45 Go) 52 mp3 music files total 294 Mo (often I used only extracts of few seconds in order to illustrate the events ) 581 photos jpg and some png (1,4Go) Total = 699 files for an amount of 9,14Go Daniel
  4. Hi Gary, I've experienced the same problem you described some weeks ago. My understanding is that we have two consider two different things : the slide duration and the object duration. The first time we put a video clip on the timeline the both durations have the same value but after if we modify the duration of the video clip object then the slide duration remains the same untill we decide to change it. I am not certain there is a good other solution ! There are pros and cons. We have just to know that... Best regards Picsel
  5. Hi lacogada, to complete the possibilities with PTE, you can also double clic on a slide in the slide list and it will be placed automatically at the last position on the Time Line. Daniel
  6. None of our club members still burn DVD. On our side we do not need any longer for such a feature.
  7. Hi Igor, Your proposal makes sense ! In our club, very few people have a 32 bits Mac right now. I think that if you release a 64 bits version of PTE for Mac they will understand you and full agree with your choice. Many others who have a 64 bits version will be very happy with this announcement and eager to test it. Quite difficult to have a finger in many pies as english people say ! The same for Windows 10 version (the owners of 32 bits could keep the existing version or previous ones). Daniel
  8. Hi Gary have you tried that ( instruction given on the GeForce experience download page : https://www.geforce.com/geforce-experience/download ) Record and Broadcast your gameplay at the same time! Press [Alt+Z] to turn on Instant Replay, Record, AND Broadcast Live - all at the same time! You can now archive high quality videos of your broadcasts to Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook. I have not made the test so that is just a suggestion...but I can guess that a game.exe or a pte.exe could work the same way??? Best regards Daniel
  9. Gary, your explanation sounds for me like if there was a problem of pixel format. If your Hi8 camera uses an anamorphic format, the pixels could be rectangular and not square. If the PTE converter does not take into account this type of "anamorphic" format that could perhaps explain your problem. In fact there are two ways to produce digital video clips with cameras. One common way uses square pixels and, depending on the camera possibilities, the other uses rectangular pixels (sometimes it is called "anamorphic" format). Depending on the rectangular/square ratio it was possible to be able to provide 3:2 video clips or 16/9 videos clips with the same coding 4:3 format using square pixels. So depending on the way the video clip is read by the decoder that could provide (wrong way : without extension of square to rectangular pixels and so the length proportion is distorted ) = 4:3 video clips or (right way with extension of square to rectangular pixels) = 3:2 in the case of your video clips. So it seeems that in the case of your video clip, PTE does not convert the coded square pixel into decoded rectangular ones. Why? Daniel
  10. Hello Gary, I hope I understand correctly your problem but... With PTE the Aspect ratio is the aspect ratio of the screen (slides). You can choose an aspect ratio of 4:3 for the screen and put on it your photos or videos which have their own format (in your post video clips 720x480 => 3:2 so in this cas you will get two black (depending on the color selected) stripes above and below. When you create your video take care that pan scan should be disabled in order to keep the same aspect ratio. Daniel
  11. Barry, I am not certain to understand your point perfectly well , .. Are you aware about the mp4 coding process ? The resulting mp4 file size will depend on video format (1920x1080 as an example), frame rate but mainly on the coding process and the coding data rate choose. Did you choose LQ, SQ, HQ ? If I remenber well the default settings are SQ with a coding scheme using variable data rate, so it is quite difficult to conclude anything, only Igor will be able to give you more details depending on the different parameters he specified for the coding process. If you want to make easier comparisons I suggest you use a fixed coding data rate. But In any case there is no relationship between the jpeg quality of your pictures and the resulting mp4 file size. Bets regards Daniel
  12. Igor I can agree with you only on one point. As I said in my previous post it is better to have a display system (screen or videoprojector) which uses a refresh rate = n times the video frame rate. But you must consider that most of the cameras sold in european countries works at 25/50 even 100fps (*). I have no problem to read them on my laptop screen whose refresh rate is 60Hz (you should notice that under W10 and with different systems it is possible to choose the refresh rate) (*) Some of them at 24fps for movie theater shows. All the digital video Tv which are broadcasted by european companies are for most of them at 25fps for full HD. Manufacturers of TV sets offer different frame rates. My LG Tv set works at 200Hz. Best regards Daniel
  13. Hi jt The refresh rate is a parameter which is independent of the video coding process frame rate. I would guess that it could be a problem with interlaced video but should not be with progressive ones. However I agree it could be better to use a video projector with a refresh rate = N x the video fps. It could be interesting to get the point of view of an expert in video projection technics on that. For your problem of mixing video clips having different frame rates, personnaly I would convert all of them at the same fps before mixing them together inside the same AV show whatever their original frame rate. Best regards Daniel
  14. Something I still do not understand with video frame rates. There are two different standards for TV movies which were inherit from the old good times of CRT. USA based on 60fps and European one based on 50fps The power supply were generated with alternative currents 60 Hz in USA countries versus 50 Hz in European countries and the TV signal was based on two interlaced frames 30 Hz and 25 Hz just in order to minimize the stroboscopic and glitering effects with the light at home ( 29.97Hz and 59.94Hz have been created by american Tv industries for technical purposes ) Obviously there is no more interest today with the progressive scanning, but the standard remained the same in order to ease the market transition between the both technologies. So I would like to understand the reason for your demand since european TV standards are based on 720p 50fps (HD) and 1080p 25fps (Full HD) since years and now for 4K or 8K ( all the digital Tv movies are based on this format - and so digital cameras sold in Europe) and 24fps for movies industry ? Best regards Daniel
  15. On my screen (standard sRGB 2K) the picture on the right looks better, brighter, warmer, more "natural". The picture on the left is perhaps a liitle bit sharper but..? Daniel
