Videowave-movie Plays Erratically

Question

I've been working on a production in Videowave. It was running smoothly and then, all of a sudden, when it plays, it doesn't run smoothly. Next to the control buttons (the start and stop etc) is the small, lined gray bar that counts the time while the production is playing. Now, it skips seconds at a time, jumping ahead (or playing too slow) and is completely off track with the sound now. I hope this makes some sense. Any suggestions?

Have you Output to a video file and played that? Any "preview" does not really indicate what you final result will be.

While playing the video in Videowave, do you have other applications running, are you connected to the internet, do you have lots of free, contiguous hard drive space? All of these plus many other things can effect the preview playback.

It looks like I figured it out. I reconfigured my start up menu as there were a lot of processes running and now it works smoothly again. Thanks for your help! :) Now, I just need to figure out the audio part. I added an music clip to the background audio. When it is over, the movie is still running. I'm trying to figure out how to trim a part of that same audio clip and loop it to finish the rest of the movie. So far, not much luck in the trimming :angry:

Video work requires all your resources. Having any applications open and running is bound to lead to problems!

 

By "background" do you mean adding music to your main video? Background usually refers tobackground audio for a Menu.

 

Explain in more detail what your are trying to do and how you are doing it.

You could just add the audio clip behind the first one
