I'm hitting a wall with WMM and it makes me angry.
I've got about half of an AMV made. I'm aware that WMM is bitchy so I want to export what I have and reimport so that I'm working with fewer clips. Unfortunately, the first time I tried to export, WMM worked for five minutes and then began to count backwards. 6 minutes left... 9 minutes left... 12 minutes left, 15 minutes, etc etc for the next four hours. The percentage never went up.
Soooo, first I got rid of DivX (stupid that i ws using it to begin with, i know). Unfortunately, I'm not sure this was wise, because now WMM is even bitchier than before. It refuses to export at all, and won't import any files either.
I tried installing Huffyuv but i get the feeling WMM is still trying to reference divx, given that I downloaded my original clips off of [redacted] and they are all marked with a divx logo. I assume this means that they only work with a divx codec. am I wrong? do I need to use avisynth to change their format?
At this point I'm in over my head and don't have any effing clue what I'm doing. I'm desperate for a solution to this problem that does NOT require that I delete the project in progress. I know I probably haven't made my problem entirely clear, but that's because I'm a n00b. T_T
I've read the FAQ and a link about converting divx files with avisynth, but I'm more confused the more I read. anyone who can explain it to me step-by-step in plain english would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
