    Could you please help me with a problem?
    The black screen in the middle that you see just after opening a VSDC project, talking about 0.11 here, this screen has become very small in my projects.
    How do I get is as large as shown in this video?

    this is just one of several aspect of the VHS lo-fi effect….tracking, grain, tape destruction…then you also have to factor in the audio.

    I feel kind of dumb for this, but, how do I switch the file over from .vproj, to .mp4? I'm working on a project that I plan on uploading to YT.
