There appears to be no instructions in the manual or on the Website on how to use the trim tool in Easy VHS to DVD.  Although the trim tool places start and end markers on the video timeline, these marker appear to do nothing when you advance to the export step.  The entire video gets exported regardlesss.  Can we have a little old fashion customer support please?  Please help.

This IS NOT customer support!

This is a peer to peer Forum.

Yes the Trim works just fine, and in fact you can have multiple trims. The results are instantaneous within the interface but the file must be Rendered for Export or Burned to DVD in order to for the changes to take affect.

Follow the link cd posted and it will show you how to do it from your Help file.

If you still have problems, post back and be sure to include your Version or Build number so we know which one of the 4 you are using :lol:

Hi JIm:
I am using BUILD 201B23a and having trouble deleting a segment of my video.
Following the Help instructions, I move the Playhead to the beginning of my trim point.
I then click the trim marker icon to place the trim point symbols. I drag the right one to "darken" the area i want to delete.   How do I delete that area?
According to your post on Feb 26, I should hover my mouse over the right marker until a double pointed arrow appears and then drag that marker to the left until it touches te left marker.
I've attempted this several times but whenever I view the video, my 'deleted portion' is still there.
Any help would be appreciated.

You just DID Delete it...

Didn't you look at cd's link showing this???

That is all there is to it.

Of course these are just "notes" and NOTHING is applied until you Burn or create a file ;)

Of course I read CD's note..that's how I marked the segment!!
I then renamed and saved the file.   When I reopened it ..nothing had been deleted.

Did you also delete the segment you marked?

If you used "Save" or "Save As" then you did not create a new video file containing your edits. All you created is a project file. To create a new video file you have to use the "Export" task.

Yes, I deleted the segments as instructed.
Can I export it to my computer in order to review it?  When I click on 'Export' and then 'Computer" a "save file to" screen appears.
Off to the right I see another highlighted 'Export' key.  When I click on that key, another copy is processed and saved on my computer but nothing is changed.
When I click on "Export"... screen says processing video and when progress bar is done, message says 'project has completed successfully'.

It sounds as though you are not looking at the file that V2D is making but only looking at your original file which is never changed???

Look under Preferences to see WHERE it is going to save the file, then look there for the new one:

It will be in the same Easy VHS to DVD folder only it will be in the subdirectory called [b]COMPUTER...

JIM: can you clear something up please?
In your Feb 26th post, you explain how to delete a video segment...."To remove the center one, I move my cursor to one of the drag handles until the cursor turns into a double arrow:"
"Then Drag that one back until it runs into the other drag handle:"
"When I let go, that ‘trim’ is gone:"

I place my trim markers using the icon.......I then slide the right marker to the right to "darken" the area to be deleted.........When I follow your instructions and move my cursor to one of the drag handles until the cursor turns into a double arrow:"
"Then Drag that one back until it runs into the other drag handle:....... it seems I am undoing the previous drag operation. I saved it to the computer folder as you explain above, but upon checking, nothing has been removed

I tried "darkening" the area to be deleted and then saving the file that way without further moving the trim tabs.
That seemed to work. The time of the saved file had been shortened by the amount I had deleted.

It is simply not possible for the program to do what you claim it is doing… Were it that fouled up, it would crash with errors

I honestly feel you are making a simple mistake and repeating it… I suggest that you get someone who is pretty good around PC’s and have them come over and read through this post as well as the Feb 26th and then perform a trim.

Let us know how that turns out.
