comment How do I change frame size, preserving width (using ffmpeg)?
If you're using recent versions of ffmpeg you don't need to stipulate x264 as the codec any more, but it still might be worth looking at what settings you might want.

comment 'Seamless' loop hangs/pauses at beginning of clip
It could be fiddly, but another way to workaround the problem would be to remove a few frames from the beginning or end of the loop. This would only work for certain content, but it might may the transition less noticeable.

comment 'Seamless' loop hangs/pauses at beginning of clip
Another workaround is to have a few of the loops in the video, so that if there is any stuttering it will happen less frequently. Of course, this will increase your file size too. I do this for video that gets used in a large public venue. A lot of times the video is played back using devices like Roku boxes that can stutter on each loop. I edit the loops into as long a video as I can fit on the card, so there'll only be a stutter once every hour or so.

comment After Effects - No preview window after reopening my project
Check that the current time of the composition is not before the beginning or after the end of the composition. This can happen if you have linked compositions and they don't all start / finish at the same time.

comment Different outputs from one comp
If I understand correctly, you want to re-use the comp several times, but apply different masks to it? For each individual mask just drag the comp into a new comp, and apply the mask.

Well you can have multiple timelines open at once, each with their own viewer. Just drag the timeline tab somewhere else in the window.

comment how can video clips be merged in Corel Video Studio Pro x7?
You don't seem to understand. When the clips are COMBINED or merged do you want the original videos playing all at once or one after the other? Don't just say COMBINED again or I will break something, I swear.

comment AE - Composition video file/layer missing audio
My answer is for rendering from AE. That pic looks like you've got Media Encoder set up ok. Can you use something like ffprobe or mediainfo to check whether there is an audio stream present? The lack of audio could mean: • there's no audio stream, • there is an audio stream which is silent, or • there's something preventing you from playing the audio properly in the encoded file.
