Yes, I guess it’s that or a new computer but I’m not thrilled about that option.
Another option could be to resize the video files without changing the sound quality - if that is OK for you.
FFMPEG is a very good (command line) tool with which this can be accomplished very easily. This tools is used in the background of almost all current video applications.
http://ffmpeg.org leads you (today) to https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ where you can download the zipfile with the windows binaries and all the documentation.
After downloading, just extract the 3 files in the bin subfolder to a directory on your hard drive at your choice.
Usefull commands for resizing:
<dir>/ffprobe -i <source file> this shows the source file specifications (video and sound)With this tools you can also change the video format (avi, mov, mkv, flv, ... ) into another format. Just specify a different video extension for the output file and it is automatically converted.
<dir>/ffplay -i <source file> -vf scale=640:-1 this plays the film while applying the video filter "scale" (needs width and height parameters)
<dir>/ffmpeg -i <source file> -vf scale=640:-1 <output file> this effectively creates a new "scaled" output file.
Someone in this forum once pointed me to a simple and effective solution that worked for me: grace notes
(Muted) grace notes (without ledger lines and some extra note spacing) let me "make" exactly what I needed, only the equal sign needs some special attention.
The original dynamic is :
After running the tool, this dynamic remains the same.
In your version this dynamic has been changed into
Also the modification in the Staffproperties does not go back into the file;
Again, after running the tool, this StaffProperties remain the same.
And in your version it becomes (what I expected)
|StaffProperties|EndingBar:Section Close|Visible:Y|BoundaryTop:12|BoundaryBottom:24|Lines:5|WithNextStaff:Bracket,ConnectBars,Layer|Color:Highlight 2
I suppose for some - still unknown - reason, the tool does not write this modification back into the file on my system?
This little lua-script can help coloring objects in collapsed sections.
This script supposes that every object in the collapsed section has the color-option. If this is not the case, I don't know what happens with your score. It may corrupt your file !!! So, use with care.
The code should be self explanatory and can be adapted if more options are needed.
