I finally gave up and redid the project. Works fine now. I think I wanted the first project to work as I am a nubie to this. I did manage to reproduce it much faster the second time. I should have just bit the bullet the first time around, but I thought I was doing something wrong.
I am new to video editing and was trying VideoPad. My final project always ends up as a saved file only about 4.98M when it should be much larger. The video which is created is only 1 frame of the entire original project. I have tried several small test videos and they are fine. I spent a lot of time on the initial project and really was hoping to save it. I've tried several outputs such as avi, flc, mov, mpg and nothing works. Is this just a bad file?
