I've finished editing the chords in a BIAB songfile that I downloaded, and would like it to end at an earlier bar than it does in the original downloaded version.

I've deleted all chords after where I want things to end, but the song continues playing past that point (repeating the final chord). Note: the white boxes in those bars are still there, but are blank (no chords entered). I guess that I want to remove those extraneous empty bars and can't figure out how its done.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Sure. It's the Bar at End of Chorus number that you also have to change. This could be the 2nd of the three numbers to the right of the song name that normally start as 1 - 32 - 3. If you are using a Tag, it will be the measure number in "Tag Ends After Bar".

Yup, that worked.

Thanks, Matt!

Yup, that worked.

Correction - That worked only with one specific song. With others, the file plays for another bar or two before ending.

I don't know why it worked with one and not others. Perhaps it's got something to do with a "tag"? I don't know what a tag is, so I don't understand the last part of your answer, Matt.

Thanks again!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
