Multi-slide edit and Auto-select video clips and Tags
« on: October 17, 2017, 05:19:11 AM »
First, Thanks Jon for this great software and the continued updates.

I have three points and i'm sure you will address them.

1.
I have noticed there is a problem when editing the slides(I'm talking about Edit Slide Properties). When you make changes to a slide and you don't update and then move on to another slide (without exiting the edit slide properties - using the arrows at the top right corner) and make changes to that second slide and then move on to another slide or update at that point and exit or close the edit properties. Now my guess would be that all the slides that i have made changes to would be updated, this does not happen. The only slide that gets updated is only the one that you are on when clicking on the update button. The funny thing is, if you go back and check on those other slides that you made changes to and the changes were not updated, all the new options you selected will still be there just as you set them despite not been reflected on the respective slides.

2.
On the Wizard section we have the auto-select option for images. Why can't we have another one for auto-select video clips. The left and right text format slides seem to have problems when using video clips on them and i don't know if this has anything to do with the omission of the auto-select video option.

3.
On the point of Tags - when uploading the video to youtube, there is that option for tags. I think it would be a very good idea if this can be incorporated in the wizard to be filled automatically from the script keywords with the ability to be edited by the user/video maker as one sees fit. This will ofcourse not be part of the slides generated. There are two points for this - it will help us to grab keywords from the article or script, and secondly, when generating translations, these tags will (or should) be translated as well and appear in the tags section in that translated language instead of inserting tags in english.

Thanks.

1. Thanks for the suggestion. But to be clear, as of right now if you don't click 'Update' before moving on to the next slide it will not update the slide.

2. Not allowing the auto-selection of video clips is by design (and not likely to change any time soon). The reason is that video clips require vastly more resources to pull down and convert, and if the system gets it wrong (in terms of video selection) it's just wasted a huge amount of resources. You just need to take a few seconds to go into each slide and manually select videos where appropriate.

3. Again, thanks for the suggestion.

Jon
