Problem editing clips to match music

Postby Asj » Tue May 20, 2008 11:41 am

So... I was trying to make a new video, but movie maker is acting strange. I've found that I need to make some of my clips 0:00:00.47 and some 0:00:00.53 - but half the time I can't edit a clip to the right length. I've also found that I need to start from the very beginning every time I preview the video, or else the music is several seconds behind.
Should I try a different video editor (suggestions?) or something?

Is there a way to edit posts? I want my clips 00:00:00.47 and 00:00:00.90, not 53.

WMM isn't frame accurate - for reliable frame accuracy you would be best advised to use a real NLE.

Something similar happened to me before, no idea if it's the same problem, but the thing you say about it working when you start the timeline from the beginning..

For me it was a problem with the music. My cd was scratched and the song was skipping, but I hadn't listened to it in a while and when I played it from the beginning in wmm it sounded okay and as long as I played the timeline from the beginning everything would look fine, but when I went back and listened to the song on media player I heard the skip. It really sucked cuz I ended up buying the cd again and I still had to adjust most of the clips all over again. :(

And wmm just won't let you make your clips that accurate.
