An issuse with timing...

Postby SunMoonAndSpoon » Sun Mar 11, 2007 3:25 am

Okay, I have never had this problem with WMM, and I don't see anything about it here so if I missed it I'm sorry. Here goes.

The issue is that when I play the whole of what I've made so far back, the timing is just fine. However, when I play from any point that isn't the beginning, the timing is entirely thrown off and the wrong clips are at the wrong words. Essentially it starts the song a good 15 seconds later than it's supposed to be. I don't know which one's RIGHT, is the thing. If the timing's right when I start it then it's okay, but kind of annoying because it means everytime I want to alter a clip I have to replay from the very beginning...WMM has a tendency to freeze when I do that. X_X;

I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

Please ignore my inability to spell the name of the tread. It was a typo and there doesn't appear to be an edit function on this forum. o.o

try rendering the whole thing and see if the timing is still off...

when i had wmm i would render it and then change it then render it again... its a pain... but it worked for the most part for me to tell if its off or not

Okay this is going to sound incredibly retarded, but what is rendering/how do you do it?

rendering is.... well saving your project as the actual video

in wmm, go to file --> save movie file as i believe

I thought that could be it, so I tried it with another song that worked perfectly well in a previous project. It has the same problem no matter what.

The thing is, I can't MAKE it with the timing like that. It's not finished. I can't make it because I don't know which timing to work with, and I'd have to play the whole thing over to edit one clip, which usually freezes the program. So rendering it can't be done until the AMV is MADE, right?

rendering can be done at any time, i usually make several "test renders" and betas before i make a final video....

it can be a test run and you can render it whenever you want however many times you want...



now uploading to the org shouldnt be done untill the video isnt finished :)

it's not like you must upload the moment you render it. everything goes like this :

1. You start your video.
2. After editing you check results on your editing software.
3. If you see the problem on your editing software (like frame freeze,or audio is bugging),you render your unfinished video and check it on player if it's alright.
4. If it's alright,then you just continue editing. If there is a problem,go and fix it (if you don't know how you can always ask here)(screenshots are always welcome-that makes easier to help you).
5. The problem is now checked,if there was problem it's now fixed,and you finished your video.
6. You render your full finished project.
7. After you finished rendering your full project,check again if there isn't any problem.
8. Now when it's finally checked,and everything is alright,you may finally upload it.
9. Launch your FTP explorer (or just use I.E.) and upload your video.
10. Be happy that you finished and uploaded your video , and now all that is left is just to wait for people to watch it.


see? everything is very simple.

WMM is hunk of turd, period. You should check out the thread I started on "audio synching problems", it addresses the exact same issue. There's nothing you can do about it, you simply have to deal.

However, you can go into the WMM programming codes and fix all the errors in the codes by hand, I did once (there aren't that many). It worked temporarily, but within a half hour it was back to freezing.

Yeah, WMM is quite irritating. I have another program, but it's too complicated and wound up taking 30 min to get one second of footage...WMM is at least easy to use, for all it's problems. Thanks for the advice, everyone, hopefully some of this will work. ^^;
