DVD Creation Problems HELP!

Question

I have spent hours, not sure how many, upon hours putting together a DVD for my sister and brother-in-law that consists of pictures and captured 8mm video of their son from birth through his 1st birthday just a few weeks ago. I get it put together with songs and preview it. It looks great and I'm ready to burn it. Then it all comes undone. The program shortens the cinemagic movies by chopping the audio short and therefore speeding up the photo transition so that by the time it's on the screen it's already changing to the next one. I finished the project with 12 minutes left on the DVD, but after a burn attempt or saving and closing, the project now has 16:30 minutes left on the DVD but no movies/slideshows are gone. And I even tried saving multiple copies under different names before closing and it still does the same thing. And of course the only way to fix it is to start all over again. After about 8 times of putting this together I'm about ready to give up. There is only one cinemagic movie in the project that hasn't messed up. It doesn't have captured 8mm video, but video captured from a DVD of the sonogram. It plays fine. Should I put the 8mm video on DVD and then recapture from DVD or is that pointless to try? Roxio support doesn't seem to have an answer. Everything is up to date. Is there anyone else who has had this problem that can help me? I was hoping to give this as a Christmas gift. Please help! Thanks.

 

UPDATE

Forgot to mention I am using Creator 2009 Ultimate. I went back and created each cinemagic seperately and saved as a seperate file. I then attempted to use the "Add Movie" function in MyDvd. This didn't work either. My Cinemagic files had already been destroyed again... I don't know what the problem is. They look fine in the previews but when I close and reopen or when I burn, they are messed up.

DO NOT USE THAT USELESS CINEMAGIC. Use VideoWave, and you aren't going to have those problems. However, you do have to start from scratch, in VideoWave. If you open your Cinemagic files, in VideoWave, you will have the same problem that you had before.
