The "history" are the clipboards that are missing in S5. The Color Fade Tool (Shift N) which use to be in the top toolbar in S4 also took me a week to find. Please bring back the button!!!!!

I'm not against bringing them back. But just wanted to point out that the Color Fade Tool is Shift-O in SE.

Shift O, Shift N, Ctrl Alt Delete, can we please get a shortcut cheat sheet?  :D

There is one. Click the "?" icon on the S5 toolbar.

...and I am open to any suggestions for improvements/additions/wording changes in those shortcuts.

If you convert the MP4 to uncompressed AVI format, then you can use S5's Movie effect. You can do the same thing with the Pixel Editor.

Matt

What do you recommend for a MP4 to uncompressed AVI convertor?  I can't seem to find on that does uncompressed.

OK - I have the AVI for the movie effect and the mp4 for the audio part.

Both same length. all synced up.

Problem is only the first 1:08 of the video will play, then blank.

I set the movie to "full length".

Any ideas?

Thanks!

What size is the AVI file? Does it play to completion in Windows Media Player? How about VirtualDub? Have you tried lowering the resolution of the AVI file, resulting in a smaller file? What prop are you applying the movie effect to? How many pixels (shouldn't make a difference, but just trying to understand the context)?

Sorry for late response Matt,

MP4 file is 40mb length is 2:53 (using for music source)

AVI is 5.2gb length is 2:53

Both play total length in VLC and windows media.

AVI was created in VirtualDub so yes.

I will try lower the resolution.

Prop is 48 pixel by 96 pixel matrix.

 

Thanks!

I haven't tested but I would guess that the AVI file in S5 is limited to 2GB. About 39% of you file is playing and 2GB is almost 39% of 5.2GB.

I Finally figured out how to do just plain fades from one color to another using "Shift N",  I miss the button in the tool bar, and the "history" of the last couple of things you did. I use mostly Dumb RGB and lots of fades. It made programming quicker when I could just click on say Green to blue,  rather than have to pick the colors each time.  Please think about bringing that back. 

Still learning S5, but seeing great potential.   

+1 to bringing back the button.  

I still draw and design effects by hand for my pixels
