Thanks for the advice. I downloaded Any Video Converter and converted a .mpg file to mpeg-11(*.mpg) as a trial. I could import to the storyline and it played and could be edited in videowave. However all the windows in the storyline were black (no picture) when the video was sent to output/export, the video would not play in movie maker. It also created 2 files in my documents, a DAT file and a .dmsm file (2 files were previously created with the .mpg file)
I tried again and converted to mpeg-1. This time it worked OK but picture quality was very poor and no pictures on the storyline.
There are several common Output profile formats in the convertor menu including DVD Video pal*mpg) Customise AVI Movie(*.avi,Customise WMV movie(*.wmv) etc., Can you recommend the one to use.
Is there a reason why Roxio have problems with .mpg files as Nero, Movie maker and CS4 do not have a problem with these files?
