WMM Freezes when my mouse goes over clip

Postby Nets_VC_15 » Wed Jan 10, 2007 6:29 pm

It has happened for a while, but normally only on songs. I am trying to make an AMV on the Rock Le Vs. Gaara scene, I try to put my mouse over the clip that shows the name genrator displaying their names for the next match but before I can even click it, just by putting my mouse over it, my mouse gets the little hour glass by it and this Window Error Report thing comes up. I normally click Send Error report, once that happens WMM closes itself. Some time sI am lucky if it saves my work. Anyone know how to fix this.

This used to happen with my the song Disbeliever that I imported into collections but it stopped, I assummed it got fixed from sending error reports, but I don't want to assume.

That sounds like WMM just sucking. Is your timeline really crowded? What are your system specs? And the ever popular How are your clips encoded?

What timeline, I was able to successfully place the song and one clip on my timeline. I don't know how to find the specs (sorry, can you explain please) and due to the problem, I can't go near the clips without WMM shutting down.

From the vidoe clip I got this info:
Bitrate 112kbps
fame rate: 23 frames a sec
vidcompression: XVID
Data: 128 kbps
16 bit sample size.


This is the data for the episode. I watched it perfectly with no issues. Then I clicked "create clips" in WMM so I could find scenes much more easily. Thats when I had these freeze up issues.

The weird thing was this sued to happen with that song I mentioned above but now it doesnt anymore.

That's probably the problem. Convert the clip to a lossless codec like HuffYUV or Lagarith and then try that. Don't edit with DivX or XviD files in any editing program.

Don't use MP3's or similar compressed audio for editing either.

For sure you mean 23.976 fps. Beside this, isn't WMM supposed to work with 25 fps and 29,97 fps only? At least this are the possible project settings, and feeding footage with different frame rate for sure has some side effects.

You can change the frame rate in virtual dub, to 25 or 29.97 (assumefps)have a look at both and see how sped up it is and then decide which you prefer.

I am having trouble with the eo video. Does it matter what I compress or conver it too? I tryed making it a Microsoft H.263 Video Codec, but it hd an error. I don't get this kind of stuff. Can some one help, should I get H.263 installed into the computer before converting it to make it work?

Did you read the AMVWiki article that
BasharOfTheAges linked to? I doubt it, M$ H.263 is as evil for editing as XviD. I suggest to go back and read.

I am really confused, I understand that I need to change my compressed XVID to a lossless file codec, I got eo-video. In the converter after I add the episode to the playlist, it asks me about compressions and stuff, do I change it to a compression? Do I leave it alone and let it change, I already tryed converting without a compression and it came up with errors, I am guessing it's because it's already an avi.

I also just recently got the HuffYuv but I don't know how to change the video I have from XVID to Huffyuv with it.

Can someone help?

Visual Dub seemed a bit complicated, can I do this with WMM? Or should I just try and get used to VDM?
