Greetings, having used virtually every MEP incarnation since it's inception I've just upgraded to MEP2017 Premium v126.96.36.199 from 2015 Premium and (not surprisingly) I find some things better and some worse than in 2015. So far the "worse" thing that is really aggravating me is the rotation editing, particularly when creating a slideshow.
In MEP 2015 (still on my system), I can rotate a picture from the preview screen (still can in 2017), rotate a picture using the vertical/horizontal etc. icons in the editing window (still can in 2017) and rotate a picture one degree at a time using the "radio" buttons (CANNOT do this in 2017. Actually I can BUT I need to really over rotate the picture and then the buttons work but come down/go up in TWO degree steps) and, after rotating a picture, I can switch to camera/zoom and the preview is shown at that angle (in 2017 the preview reverts to 0 degrees i.e. no change - move to a different editing section such as size/position, the preview is shown rotated. This makes accurate cropping tricky).
I think this explains the problem I have, if not I can explain further.
So my question - is anyone else having this problem? Surely it can't be my system as 2015 works perfectly. It seems so far to be the only glitch I've come across.
Having said that, don't get me started on NewBlue Video Essentials; they worked perfectly in MEP 2013. Still do in 2017 but when I export the movie without the NewBlue effect being selected in the edit window (for example with camer/zoom or sharpness selected) the video exports as a normal unedited picture.
Looking forward to hearing from you - Thanks AndyW
