Re: New Timeline is not better / feedback for 7.3

Hi,

I come from using 6 and have figured out how to us 7.3 to mark sections as cut, but there is one thing I am not sure of.

In version 6, when selecting to cut something and then marking begin and end, that piece of cut video would show collapsed on the timeline and when I pressed play, the video would skip the cut section and I would see what the finished product would look like.

Now, it leaves the cut section uncollapsed and tinted with red and when playing, still plays the cut section.  When outputting the video, the final result does remove the cut sections, though.

Is there a way to toggle having the playback skip the cut sections so that I can view how the video will ultimately be saved?
i come from 6 too but the collapsed video always plays when i see what it will look like apology i am wrong collapsed does not play

6 was better but no mkv sound .

But: the shown movie flips constantly between the position of the grey mouse pointer and the yellow real playback marker, if mouse is over timeline.
that all makes editing more complicated and susceptible to mistakes.

this is by far the most annonying thing that i experienced with the 7.3 !!

Still have issues with subtitle (.srt) as well. i spend a lot of time to resync them, very annoying unfortunatly.
hope this would be fixed one day.

I add as well an another issue that i experience at each launch. Maybe a problem with memory or graphic memory, i saw here an another user who had the same issue than me, don't know if they are more of them.
When using the software, it slows down the window of other windows apps (W10 x64 last update + i7-7700 + 32Gb of Memory DDR4), and slow down the whole computer. if Videosplitter run, and that, for example, i launch a picture viewer, in the background like, fastone viewer, it take maybe 5 secondes to load one jpg picture, even more, and it the same with any other software and windows itself.

as soon as the software is closed everything come back to normal. I didn't noticed in the task manager any information which could explain what's happening, the use of memory is ok, SSD too (i only have SSD), same with my both video cards (Nvidia GT640 external and Intel HD 630 (internal).

Hello,

2 vdo,
The automatic interval collapsing is currently disabled, but we'll restore it in the future releases. Now you can collapse the "Cut" intervals manually by double clicking the interval or a double arrow button over the interval.

2 Hobedtor,
Thank you for the feed back, I'll provide it to the developers. I will post here if any of this will be implemented.

This was my answer you deleted:

At least there should be the possibility (options/view) , that the area behind every marker is already marked on the contrary than the area before. Then it would be no disadvantage to version 6.
The extra step of selecting a trimming section is annoying.

I use Video Splitter since version 6.

there are only two options

1. there is some segment between equal markers that has to be marked either cut off or kept
2. there are two type of markers , begin and end. we know start and end of the segment,. but at the beginning we select the mode to be cut or kept"


to2: selecting worked also after editing

therefore it would be fine if we could choose between this behaviours, mine is 2. 

best regards

Hi Hobedtor,
Sorry I accidentally removed your reply :(

Did you use our version 5? that was exactly the same behaviour

there are only two oprions

1. there is some segment between equal markers that has to be marked either cut off or kept
2. there are two type of markers , begin and end. we know start and end of the segment,. but at the beginning we select the mode to be cut or kept

Anyway we keep waiting for more feedback to  decide if it gets better or worse. in my feeling now we have less complains for 6 to 7.3 switch, than 5 to 6

Hi Hobedtor,

thank you for your feedback.

There is no advantage in the new functions of timeline. Before: 2 Steps to cut out: set start, set end, cut out automatic.
Now 3 steps are necessary: set marker, set marker, decide to cut or keep, mark space between markers.

But now you shouldn't think whether it begin marker or end marker. If you remove many segments it slows down the work.

But you are right there are always pro and contra. We just had many negative feedback after we introduced the version 6.

Hello

I'm a experienced user of the splitter. Tried out 7.3. There is no advantage in the new functions of timeline. Before: 2 Steps to cut out: set start, set end, cut out automatic.
Now 3 steps are necessary: set marker, set marker, decide to cut or keep, mark space between markers.
Only advantage: pointing with mouse possible. But: the shown movie flips constantly between the position of the grey mouse pointer and the yellow real playback marker, if mouse is over timeline.
that all makes editing more complicated and susceptible to mistakes.
Was better before, I'll go back to previous versions.

real better functions would be: a real time fast foreward playback mode (no jumps) /
more (time subdivisions 2s!) and bigger/smaller options for the thumbs in the timeline...

bugs:
generally not working since 7.0: picture mode: It is shown the same picture for seconds...
MKV, downloaded from youtube, cannot be loaded.

best regards
