  • I have the same problem. Nothing I do can be exported. Does not matter what source I try to make a cliplet from.

  • I have the same problem. If I try to export either a wmv or a mp4 all I get is a 32 byte file. I'm running Win7 Ultimate 64bit on a 1.8Ghz Core 2 system with 2 Gb of Memory.

  • I'm not sure what is going on.  If one of you can share an example project with us that might help debug the issue.  If you could share the input video and the cliplets project file (.xclp) that should be enough.  Best way to do this would be to post it to http://skydrive.live.com/ and send us a link at hdview@microsoft.com

  • Here is one of the projects that I can't export:

    I might add that I use windows 7 x64 bit, and the version of Cliplets for x64.

  • Thanks.  I'm am able to reproduce the problem.  We will let you know soon if there is a resolution.

  • This looks like a bug in Cliplets related to odd sized videos.  Your video is 480wide by 720high (neither dimension is odd).  But, the video has an unusual pixel aspect ratio of 27/32.  You can see this by playing in Windows Media Player, notice that the video has an unusual tall aspect ratio.

    Anyway Cliplets obeys this aspect ratio and converts the video to 405wide by 720high.  This is what tickles the bug, our output codec doesn't support odd dimensions so errors-out on the 405 wide video.

    We'll need to fix this in the code.  In the meantime, I'm curious how did you generate this video?  Perhaps it would be possible to adjust your workflow before feeding you video to cliplets and avoid this issue?

  • I used my cellphone to record and then used a online converter. Does cliplets only export 1 by 1 aspect ratio videos? Good to know in that case. I will change my workflow.

  • > Does cliplets only export 1 by 1 aspect ratio videos?

    Correct. The cliplets app normalizes to square pixels.  This is the way that it works now, but perhaps we should consider maintaining the source aspect ratio?
