Are you a vista user ? On another thread a vista user reported movie maker crashing when importing vids created in a different programme. No solution was never found unfortunately.
Try saving your files to the DV=AVI format instead

Thought I'd post this.
I've been playing around with superconverter a little bit more converting clips from a PAL dvd and converting to wmv. The Audio/video sync problems seem to have gone away :-)
Here is a screen capture of settings I have used. I'm not suggesting these are definitive settings to use , but I'm more than happy with the resultant wmv video.

I mentioned Super Video Encoder on another thread , but I see that "someperson" was already in the know about this fantastic encoder. Good shout someperson111 !
STOIK is still my favourite AVI to wmv encoder , but SUPER Convertor seems to take care of everything else with the added bonus that it's very easy to use.

Ha! I did notice that the sound and video were out of sync on a rendered wmv file - to be fair though it does say that the wmv encoding is "Experimental"
I notice that it is also possible to render reverse video using one of the direct show options - there always seems to be people asking how to do that on this forum.

I think that is one of my transition sets you are referring to. Remove the xml you have created and then download and extract transition set 4 from Here
It includes everything you need

The three panel effect is possible using either some customised PIP+ code or using an Aviscript. I'm not sure which method you are preferring to use.
I'll leave it to the PIP+ experts to detail the code for what your after as I'm really rusty on it now.
For the aviscript method however I can help as I already have several scriopts published thad do exactly the kind of thing you're requesting. It can be found by clicking on

Baseballus...I'm guessing that you don't have the correct compression setting set in virtual dub to create a compressed DV-AVI file. My guess is that you may be saving it as an uncompressed file...PapaJohn saves his files using the Panasonic DV codec but this may not appear on everybodys system including yours - It may need to be installed seperately
An alternative compression method you could try is compressing the file as a wmv encoded avi file. I have a little guide that ...

Hi all. Long time since I posted on here. Anyone who has visited my site in recent times will know that it has pretty much been in an archive form for quite a long time with no worthwhile updates for a good couple of years. This is never good for a web-site. I was happy however to keep it ticking over in archive form as people were still visiting but I have just had the rug pulled from under my feet over reported bandwidth issues and the account has been suspended by my web-host. There might be ...

Webhost just got back to me stating that they are going to de-suspend me so site should be up and running in next 24 hours. I still do not understand what the root issue is but that is another story.
The experience has been a wake-up call however in that I really should get my stuff properly archived should the same problem ever repeat itself

That is fine by me :-)

After following TheOnePb's suggestion , if that doesn't yield results you might have a file path issue in which case the xml may need modifying.
I don't know if the vista version of moviemaker allows relative file paths and if MMK's xml conversions make use of them. If they don't you may be suffering from the same issue that a few XP users suffer from. The following link is XP specific but may also apply to Vista users if the file path given for the transition ...

I had an email yesterday enquiring about getting some of my transitions to work in vista movie maker. Needless to say I'm very grateful to MMK for having done these conversions.
My site has been neglected for a while now but I want to try and make it alive again as soon as I get some spare time. I'll make sure that my very first task is linking to MMK's excellent site (I love the really clean and neat design BTW)

Dave - It's got to be done !
creating the blog and posting to it is easy - probably on a par to posting on a forum. The only bit that's a bit more challenging is modifying the template to your exact requirements such as column widths, link fields and that kind of thing. It just involves modifying some html.
I've got a website that I've published to in the traditional way of creating the HTML in a wysiwyg editor (I use the free NVU) and then publishing via FTP. ...

IF you do go via Google bloggers route and IF you decide to post using Picasas Hello - here's a couple of tips you may want to take on board:
If you wish to post multiple images in a single post with hello you need to finish your text sentence with "||" ( bottom left key - ignore the speech marks.) for instance you may decide to post a pic and decide to add the text "Picture 1||"
This will queue the picture . Repeat the process several times until ...
