Is there any way to change how often the auto save happens?

Richard,

Under "File" in the top menu bar, go to Preferences and then follow the attached screenshot.

Regards

Douglas

I agree and it is annoying.  ALSO...with the new update, the program constantly crashed.  I created a memorial video in the morning with no issues.  I installed the update before creating another video and the program crashed umpteen times.  I rebooted thinking that may help, but to no avail.  Any suggestions would be most welcome before I am pressed to do another video.  Thank you! 🙂

Douglas,

Thanks!  In Creator it is in the "Edit" menu.  I looked for it yesterday, and didn't see it (glassy eyed from trying to sync some audio! - this is a big issue.).  By the way, I really like your tutorial on the color wash - great way to accomplish that.  Thanks!

 

Joshua -

Since it appears that Photopia has possible issues with processing video, it would be great if you could unlock the audio track which is tied to the video, so the audio could be moved slightly to re-sync it with the video.  What I had to do was to render my video to create a separate audio file (I use Vegas for video editing).  Then lower the audio volume to 0.0 in the Timeline video track.  Add the separate audio file into the show then I could move it to synchronize it with the video.  This part of the process would be much easier if I could move the audio file by one video frame using the left/right arrow keys - using the mouse for this step is very difficult - but doable.  My method is a non-starter for those who can't create separate audio files from their video.

I too am having constant crashes and I am in the middle of a video that was working prior. Took hours to create just a few slides because it crashed on the simplest tasks. anyone else having this problem. i am on a time crunch for a project and cant handle that. Thanks for the tip on autosave. It was great but way too often.

Joshua (and anyone else with audio/video sync issues),

The audio track is NOT locked to the video once it is imported to a show.  After watching Jennifer's tutorial "All About Audio" (for the 5th time!), I discovered that you could move the audio track with CTRL/drag on the "Video" track in the Timeline view.  This will move just the audio portion of the imported video.  It isn't as easy as it could be, but it works.  Being able to use the left/right arrows to move by video frame (or some definable amount of time) would really be helpful.  I found that the video seems to bleed into a transition, so I added an opacity keyframe set to just before the end of the video to set the video opacity to 0 just before the end.  My particular video was the military "Missing Man" ceremony, so I added a black blank slide after the video to keep the emotion.
