The tip published by PG Music on the 18th of September was how to save your BIAB file as a video. I never knew this existed!! I think I might enjoy this feature....

Here is a basic backing track in C major for Amazing Grace. You can use this track to try and pick out the melody by ear or to just play and sing along to.

I am busy with an ear training course with Musical U and I think the folks there, that don't have band-in-Box, may enjoy these videos.

Amazing Grace Practice Track in C Major (folk swing 110 bpm)

RealBand has that also now.
There's a free avi to mp4 converter here to convert the very large avi to smaller mp4 video:

Band-in-a-Box is really the most awesome tool (as if we didnt know that!)

Someone on Musical U said they wished they had this track in a Hawaiian style. So bang, presto, change the style in BIAB, make a video and upload to Youtube. In about 5 minutes flat! Btw, he then asked if that was me on the Pedal Steel wink

Hi bernard. I live in South Africa so it is mid morning here smile

You can use a screen capture program as mentioned by pipeline. I also use www.bandicam.com to make videos from m the screen. You can save it to your C drive and view whenever you want.

Otherwise you can copy the settings and make your own Biab file smile

Wow, how can you not know this feature was in there, Jo, it's been included for at least 3 years now! crazy

Anyway, since this method gives you the chords right into the video, it could potentially make those "educational" clips of your cover songs a whole lot simpler to make cool

p.s. I know you were just whipping out those two demos real quick for the sake of showcasing the feature, and that you're obviously busy with other things, and I'm nothing but a big nitpicker here and yadayada, but well...both of them have the wrong chord at the end smirk

Hi

I get an audio recording on the video but just a black screen for the video itself on my PC. I've tried different codecs and different dimensions. I just used 'Show video file' not 'Upload to Youtube'. I've got two screens, a TV and a monitor and I moved BIAB to both, but still just a blank screen. When I export from BIAB to Youtube. it works fine. See below: (I was just trying to demonstrate/test lyrics)

https://youtu.be/gCVg3q56Ols

Also, the BIAB Save as Video pop up screen hides behind the BIAB main screen. (I reckon that's a bug.) I also have to import it into Youtube. The drag option won't work.
