Nero Video 19 Problem

Nero Platinnum 19. Nero Video. PIP in Nero Video 18 worked great. In Nero 19 cannot get it to work as expected. Import 2 vidoes; click Nero PIP, Choose Template with no background, click settings tab, Set Duration at 25:25 (shorter than each video), set insert mode as "use gap" although shift and overwrite appear to do the same thing, Video A placeholder shows the full 25:25. Video B placeholder starts at 5:05 and ends at 20:25. A total of 15m and not 25:25. Using new desktop with Intel I7-8700, 16g memory and 2T hard drive

  • Hi Bill, some of the PiP animations are asynchron, depending on the animation. For example: If this doesn't solve you problem, maybe you an provide a screenshot?

  • There are 2 rows under "basic Effects". The first row has backgrounds. The second row does not. I am using the first PIP effect in the second row

  • Bill,

    The insert mode refers to placement on the timeline. Here's a YouTube Video showing some examples:



    The manual has a description of these modes:


    The Insert mode drop-down menu allows you to choose between
    three insert setting options. They determine how the Nero Picture in
    Picture Effect template is inserted into the timeline.
    Use gap: This is the default setting. Inserts the template into the gap
    to the right of the time cursor.
    Only available if the gap has at least the length of the template you
    want to insert.
    Overwrite: Inserts the template according to the duration you have
    selected, without adjusting its length to the gap. If the template is
    longer than the gap to the right of the time cursor, the video
    clips/audio clips/pictures or parts of these items to the right of the
    template are overwritten by the template.
    Shift: Shifts the video clips/audio clips/pictures to the right of the time
    cursor and positions them after the template.


    The manual says the following about the duration setting:


    The Duration input field allows you to define the duration of the
    selected Nero Picture in Picture Effect template. Every Nero Picture
    in Picture Effect template has a default and a minimum duration.


    I've tried the first three of the PIP templates in Nero 2018 Video and Nero 2019 Video. Using NV2018:



    I mixed up the order, but I don't see a difference using NV 2019:

  • Thanks so much for the detail. I will try to do as well. Here is the first screen shot of what I see when I initiate NV2019 PIP.



    Using NV2018 it would have this:



    In 2018 there were a lot more effects (1 over 1 track) than what I am seeing in 2019. But that is not necessarily the issue I don't think.

    Here are the 3 versions of NV2019 PIP using "gap", "shift" and "overwrite". As you can see each one yields the same result. I set the duration at 27:25. Video B starts at approx 5min mark and goes to approx 22min mark. Video A starts at 0 and goes to 27:25.

    This is "use gap"



    This is "shift"



    This is "overwrite"



    So what am I missing.

    thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.

  • Bill,

    Here's a YouTube video showing the available Nero 2019 Video PIP effects on my computer:



    This is the Platinum selection list; if you are using a paid Nero 2019 Platinum, yours would be identical. If you are using the trial version, I can't say for sure what you would have available. If you have a paid Platinum suite, I suppose contacting Nero would be in order.

    Since your timeline has only one PIP effect, it wouldn't matter what insert mode was chosen.

    Your examples look normal to me (except the first has no content).

  • Thanks. I am indeed using a paid version of Nero 2019 Platinum that was offered prior to the full release. I think I must have a bum versions.

    thanks

  • Great. I went to Nero Technical Support and tried to submit my inquiry complete with screen grabs and this is what I get:

  • I only find Content Pack 1 and Content Pack 2. I do not find Content Pack 3. Are you referring to "Nero Life Themes Pro". I am downloading 1 and 2 now and will see what that does for me and if that does not work then I will try once more to get a response from Tech Support.

    thanks

  • Ok...I guess I am just an idiot. After all of this over the last several days, I think you can chalk this up not downloading Content Pack 1. As soon as I did that, all the PIP effects appeared including the one I was most interested in (1 over 1 track). Duration worked as expected and both video A and B are the full length of the duration.

    I will go back to my room now and stand in the corner. It will not be the first time nor the last I am sure.

    Thank you very much for the help. I really appreciate it.
