Problems Editing Video With Cinemagic

Question

Hi all,

 

I'm running Windows XP fully updated. Based on some posts I've read, I apparently have a video card problem, but I think something else may also be going on.

 

I had 8mm film converted to DVD and imported the DVD as a .mpg file. I opened a new program in Cinemagic, added the file and went through a gazillion clips, putting x's and check marks to identify which clips I wanted to use. I added about 40 minutes' worth of audio (which I figured would just loop since the clips I chose were together over an hour long). Here's the problem: the video generated from this process was only about a minute long. It did manage to assemble only the chosen clips and in the right order and it even added the audio, but the whole thing (audio included) ends after one minute, mid-song. Where are the rest of the clips?!? I went back a couple of times to make sure the clips are still selected and they are. Any ideas what might be going on, or is this just another part of the video card problem?

 

Thanks!

Do not use Cinemagic for anyything. It is very limited and gives all sorts of problems. Nobody here recommends using it.

 

The program to use for editing video is Videowave (Edit video - advanced)

In step 2, did you Set the Production Duration (mm:ss) ?
