Frustrating still picture issue

Postby johnw » Fri Aug 16, 2019 3:08 pm

Hey,
I have a piece with a video track of still pics, a slideshow if you will. Somehow Mixcraft uses a background from a former version of the piece which showed a blank pink background on the screen, between the still pics. I have removed all original pics, which are associated with Irfanview, but MC displays the blank pink background between the stills.

I think the pink background is coming from Irfanview, even tho I have removed it from there--it tends to leave your last work as it was when you close it. I changed the background color to black. But why does MC insist on displaying this pink background, even tho I replaced the picture with the pink backgound with a standard black background.

Hope this doesn't bog you down! Any help appreciated, thanks much.

Hi,

If you load it into a new, empty project, does the same thing happen?

Are you loading a video into Mixcraft or still images? If you're loading a video into Mixcraft, Mixcraft will just display whatever is in the video. Maybe you're loading an old file?

As always, thanks for your reply Greg. I started a fresh project, with a fresh still picture--no video, just stills. The pink background stays, so I believe MC is "holding" info. somewhere, such as the composition itself. The workaround is to create a black ground and fill all spaces between the stills. I changes the graphics programs the stills are associated with, but that didn't make a difference. If this is a stumper no problem! Worst outcome is to just allow the pink.

Thanks again!

Hi,

Are you using Mixcraft v8.1 build 418?

Please submit an Acoustica Support Request and send us an image that displays a pink background for you.

Yes Greg, the latest MC 8 and build. I "solved" the issue with a "work-around", replacing all spaces between still pics with an image of a black screen, default view in Irfanview. These spaces between pics used to be black in MC, but after putting in a pink background in one photo using Irfanview MC kept it that way, even after I changed the pics to have a black background, and changed the graphic program they are associated with (FYI)

Thanks!
