more problems saving rotated video
« on: September 14, 2018, 08:18:57 PM »
Hi all, I've searched and read advice on saving a filtered video but can't get it to work.
Windows 7, Avidemux 2.71, updated today.
Mpeg4AVC, MkvMuxer

I have a video that's upside down.  Rotate 180 deg, fine.  Preview, fine. Play with preview enabled, fine.  But when I stop Play it reverts to the upside down original.  When I save, I get the original, not the edited version. What am I missing? I don't see any option for saving the edit.

You can't pause video with filter preview enabled, so this behaviour is entirely expected and normal. The filter is applied when re-encoding the video.

Would you please save the edit as a project script (File --> Project Script --> Save As Project) and attach the .py file to your reply? Apart from that, could you please provide the output of MediaInfo both for the source and for the re-encoded video?

Just in case, please try the latest available nightly build (r180901 as of now) instead of the last release.

check
- the saved video is probably in another location then the original
- you open the saved video and not the original video

whilst saving you should see the progress bar:

Thanks all, this time it saved the edit.  Must have been a computer glitch last night.  I don't think I'm doing anything different.
