I would like to query about the FLC emulator
that comes with AVI EDITOR.. you know how you can export to FLC
using the option in the file menu.. well it works fine.. BUT.. comparing
the conversion utility to that of ulead gif animator is a joke..
When I exported an animation file (24 bit color to 256 color)
to a flc autodesk file.. the quality was incredible... seeing as autodesk
has only 256 colors.. but converting the same pic in avi editior
to flc... the quality was terrible.. lacking color..(wrong color keys
no doubt)... same with the converter program that comes with
animator.. that also cannot convert properly.. but ulead gif
animator does it incredibly... i would like avi editor to do
the same as avi I have registered it.. but dont worry if it is
to hard.. cos no one else can do it but ulead at the moment..
(hmm steal there secret eh??) whos stopping you am software :/
It is suspicious that Ulead product made the job that original Autodesk
software failed to perform. We didn't see your files (and we could talk
about sending sample files to us) - but probably Ulead used some extended
FLC file format (perhaps HiColor ?) while AVIedit strictly maintains the
backward compatibility with existing "aaplay" software including
v1.0 of it :) Therefore we are limited to 256 colors. Also, we do not use
dithering, because this will increase the file size many times.
Anyway, we're ready to fair competition.

Hi guys, great prog. I love it. Here are my question: Whe i
recording a Tv show, why at 18-19 min the prog. stop the recording, this make
me record another segment, and in the end i have a lot of segments...there's
any way to overide this? I'm working with shareware copy. working with
angelpotion codec, and Windows V1 sound. thanks!
Most likely the avi file index size is set to its default value,
approx. 30,000 frames,
- therefore at 25 fps the index is filled in a 18-20 minutes and the
capture ends. Use Capture/Options dialog box to check and increase the index

is there any way to change the framerate in windows movie maker
for windows xp??? im editing a skateboarding video and we want some slow
motion in there. so if there is anybody that can help, feel free
Me personally, if you want to know my experience regarding Windows XP,
please look for the article in our site Readings area... He-he...
To change avi file frame rate, try our freeware AVIfrate utility. The entire
file gets slower to play, without the rendering. Unfortunately, having a
Windows Media Video (WMV) or ASF file, you can't change its speed. Especially
you can't do this with MS Movie Maker :(

hello, i have an avi that has a corrupted header due to data
recovery. is it possible to repair/edit the header so the file works again?
In theory it is possible. However you must be familiar enough with the header
fields. Unfortunately we know no software that works in such a case. In fact,
you have to fix the fields using a hex editor, you need to remember the frame
width, height, # of frames, bit depth, codec and some other data. It is not

I am very interested in your AVIEDIT software. I ran the trial
version and it too crapped out after making a very very small avi.
Windows 2000. Will this problem go away if I purchase your product?
Is there a
file size limit? Will it run with XP home Edition. You software is
what I am
lomging for I just want it to work for me.Thx
It depends on what exactly problem you expect to be gone after purchase.
Yes AVIedit is limited in file size by approx. 2GB - and 4GB when it creates
a file in Timeline editor (make movie option). AVIedit works with XP and 2000;
however it is important what exactly are you doing. For example, when you
have no Indeo 5 codec installed, you will be unable to watch the movies created
using this codec, no matter what operating system you use. And vice versa,
once you install the codec, you see it working. It depends :)

I'm trying to capture .BMP pictures from movies to print on my
printer. How is the best way to do this using the AVIedit software?
You may wish to start with File/Page setup menu item. This dialog box lets
you change the size and placement of the printed picture. Then scroll to
the one you need, select it and print it.
Perhaps you'd prefer to apply some filters first (fix the colors, make
the picture brighten and contrast) - in this case you must export the processed
picture to bmp file (or jpeg, gif etc.) and then you can print it using
virtually any software you like, no matter if it allows you to enhance the
image (say, even Windows Paint fits).

I'm trying to import 5600 targa or bmp
images into aviedit to encode them into a divx avi, but it stops
processing them after frame nn. This happened on both my computer,
running windows 2000, and another running windows XP.
What could be the problem?
It is not the problem but a trial feature :) You can append the
small videos later, in order to build the big one. By the way,
your question is
discussed in a help file, here at the forum, in our articles area
(regarding Q3 demos creation) - perhaps nothing is new...

Great program for capturing and editing,
even on my rather slow pentiumII 400 mHz / 392 MB RAM with Miro
PCTV Rave it works great! I only have one problem. When capturing a
movie with DivX4 slow motion codec and PCM 44.100 Hz/16 bits
sound everything is working fine and the image is very fluent
with good sound. The only thing is that the filesize is a bit too
large for me, so I want to make it smaller by converting the sound
to MPEG 3. But when I open the captured movie and try to save it
with the sound as MPEG 3 the program freezes and I have to restart
the PC or the movie is saved but the sound stutters, when playing the
file in AviEdit or MediaPlayer 7. Should I install another codec
(I've installed for music the Radium MP3 codec, and for movies
DivX 4, DivX 5) or save the movie or sound in another way?
Please make sure your avi file after the capture finishes does not run
beyond 2 or 4 Gb size limit. Also, if you want to immediately open
and compress the file, probably you must close AVIedit or, at least, shut
down the capture system. Otherwise, the file might be still open and
therefore non-accessible by other processes.
To make playback more smooth, try saving the file using some interleave
factor. This makes smaller the pieces of sound and video that CPU has
to decode, and requires less CPU time for that. The file will be bigger
than its non-interleaved version. We'd suggest you try a small clip first,
just to play with settings.
Personally, we do not think today DivX 5 is a decent product. It looks
like DivX 4.13 (he-he...) with some extra features and web
advertisement on top. If you can get it work, we celebrate your win.
Otherwise we suggest you use either DivX 3.11a or 4.12 (the latest 4.x
release, still byggy - but sometimes better than 5.x)
Hopefully it is not the only DivX codec clone :)

i'm trying to edit a movie to where i can
chop off the credits at the end. will i have to watch the entire
movie or is there a way to skip to the end?
Home, end, ctrl-left, ctrl-right, pg-dn, pg-up, arrow keys - these all
can help you. Or click the mouse or drag the scrollbar thumb...

I've been trying to use "Save As" to futher compress an avi
file. It all seem to work ok for a while, but at some point it
errors with "could not read file", or simply freezes
with "saving file.(filename) 100%" on task bar tool tip
(could you put a modal dialog with progress bar or at least
percentage indicator at some more obvious place,
took me a while to realize that it was actualy doing something
and not just bombed out). I use latest version
of AVIEdit (build Feb 26 2002) on w2k pro.
AVIedit window header shows you the progress percentage on save. However
OpenDML extended files (that can, and sometimes really have
more than one RIFF AVI header per file) won't be handled correctly. Maybe it's
your case. To get further diagnostics, try our free AVIdiag utility.

Referring back to my post of Wednesday,
February 13, and your reply, when I click on Edit/Info all that happens
is a window opens for me to "Set Stream Info." There is nothing
about codecs there. I guess some misunderstanding exists.
It looks like you use an older AVIedit version. Current one lets you
see codec names there, and also you can see bitmap format and sound
properties. It's time to upgrade :)

I have a solution for the person who has
no sound using his Hauppauge WinTV. Look in the winTV
directory, there is an censored called audoSEL. You can use it to
LINEUP the sound to the right address. You may have to run winTV

Im confused. I would like to incert a
sound file at a ceretain point in my movie, but whenever i paste it,
it just plays at the begining of the movie. how can i put sound files
at the correct times. I tried timeline editor, but the sound doesnt play
that way. help!
Probably the wav file is compressed - so timeline editor can't play it.
In such a case, try opening wav file, and save it as uncompressed. It
will take a few times more HDD space - but will be usable in Timeline.
Your second question, there is no way to paste the sound when no audio
exists. In this case your sound file will start at zero point. However, you
can record a silence, add this "sound" to your video track, then paste
your wav file inside this silent audio track at arbitrary position. This
tricky way, but...

of combinations with different frame and bitrates but there are
allways droped frames.any solution? greetings -micha
Your system seems to be fast enough to perform a generic capture.
However there are some other reasons that can lead to dropped
frames (please look through the Forum pages): background applications,
network shared drives, fragmented HDDs etc. After all, DivX 5 is
not free and obviously it includes an additional authorization code
that could (?) make it sometimes slower, or just cause drops. Probably
you need to try some other codec (HuffYuv maybe) to make sure the
drops are not caused by the codec itself, then try to speed up
the system (tune the hard drive caching, remove extra applications
that may eat CPU power etc.)

I have an avi that is currently 800x600
and 16 bits per pixel. I would like to resize the image. I click
on Process > Crop/Resize. From here I select "scale cropped to"
and I enter my new dimensions. The I export the avi but it
remains 800x600. Cropping the image works correctly, but I
cannot seem to get the resizing to work. Thanks in advance.
Also, as the support forum grows maybe you can add a search
feature to the web site. Tnx.
Currently AVIedit can resize true color clips only, and this is
mentioned in a help file. When you need to resize other bit depths,
probably the "forced" bit depth would help: in AVI Properties
dialog box you see a group of radio buttons that define current
or desired color bit depth. If you change hiColor to trueColor,
scale should work (though, file will be saved as trueColor picture).
The site search feature would help a bit; however, it is even better
to download an entire Forum archive (as of today, about 100KB zip
file) and browse it off-line. In this case you could use much more
advanced search tools...

I´ve read your answer to my
question regarding FireWire. but still after using DVin, AVIedit
shows me a black Picture with the heading. (#0[dvsd] 15377 frames)
(name.avi Audio #1)
I understood that only the Windows moviemaker would create
the wrong AVI Format. And by using the direct way via DVin
I could get a usable Format. Did I understand something wrong?
We thought, your problem was the file format difference. If it isn't,
then maybe you simply do not have the codec (DV decompressor)
installed ? (AVIdiag utility could help to check this).

I just installed AVIEdit after reading many good reviews.
I keep getting the following error message when I try to capture video
from my JVC Mini DV:"Capture Driver isn't connected". What does this mean,
how can I fix it?
Please see a few previous posts... While AVIedit can't download the DV from
camcorders via firewire, use DVio or other tools. Or, having a capture card,
try to switch to WDM capture mode.

Hey Alex - well I bought AVIEdit - now I'm happy with being able
to arrange my movies. One question - is there any way to preview audio in
the timeline editor? It would be great if there was, so that I could line
up audio tracks with film clips properly - currently I just have to guess
from the look of the audio clip and then render it and check. Otherwise,
Mark, unfortunately there is no way to hear the audio without the rendering.
For a video effects it was much easier to implement instant preview from
timeline... We hope this will be improved.
Just a trick, use the time zoom-in and render only the visible part of the
project, to keep the rendering time short. Obviously it's not the best way,
but a work around.

I have the same Problem as Chris. I´m using a
digital video Cam and Capturing the videos via FireWire into my WinXP
Notebook using Windows movieamker. It seems that AVIedit is a good Prog.
if it would work with me. SO?? How can I capture Videos from my VideoCamera?
I get the Message "Can´t find VCapture::IAMStreamConfig" when pushing
the VideoCam Icon. I also can not convert my existing AVI FIles because
of the message "Failed to connect AVI Splitter->DV Splitter: 0x80040207"
Can I use AVIedit at all with my HArdware (Video firewire) or do I need
a other Prog?
Yes, and no.
DV capture (via firewire, or 1394 card) is very different from analog
video capture. It looks much closer to download the huge avi file from
your DV camcorder (which acts like a portable streamer, a tape backup device).
AVIedit does not allow "downloading" DV from camera, but if you have a
capture card like miroDC10+ or TV tuner card with SVHS input jack (like
AverMedia or FlyVideo cards) then you can capture (not download) the DV
video in AVIedit, using your camera analog video output pins.
There are many DV i/o software titles around, that will copy your DV videos
to the hard drive, into avi files. For example, DVio is freeware and only 30KB
Regarding the first error message you mentioned, most likely AVIedit failed
to find any analog video capture card on your PC. As we said, your FireWire
card is not exactly that AVIedit needs for capture.
The second error message occurs when you're trying Tools/DV converter for
avi files that are not DV Type 1. Or, perhaps, the DirectX version is too
old. The problem with Type1 and Type2 avi files was introduced by Microsoft,
and DirectX claimed to be the best multimedia solution. Thus, our file
converter relies on Microsoft' way to fix their own problems :(

ok lets see how I explain this.. now... I have a stream with
a RGB of 0,0,0 (black) and there is a Red square in the middle... this will
be transparent over my other video clip stream.. now... When i use the
filter I can achieve this rather easily.. and I like what I see in the
Preview.. But now the tricky part.. How do I save this as 1 AVI file..
cos when I go save it only saves the first stream meaning the Video clip,
not the transparent overlay... asn inexperienced AVi edit user I havent
figured this out yet.. But I learn quickly so I may have allready figured
it out before you can answer it
but just incase.. please help
There is an important difference between save and export.
The help file explains this fully. When you save,
you can cut and paste entire frames, and can avoid recompression, thus
saving the source video quality. There is no way to apply filters. Unlike
save, export lets you change the frames interior: adjust brightness, add
effects, apply layers etc. However export always decompresses your picture,
this may affect the quality and is slower than save without recompression.
This is just a tradeoff...
Do not forget to check "what to filter" - export option in the Filter dialog

I don't get any sound when trying to capture with my Hauppauge
WinTV Theater. Why???
There can be two reasons: the audio track is captured with zero level, or
the audio isn't captured at all. If the captured avi file has the audio
track, then check the recording level (it's not the same as system tray Volume
applet) and the input line that is assigned for recording. Often there is a
microprone input set by default.
If you do not see audio track in the
captured file, then click Capture/Options menu item and check audio

I am trying to use avi edit to capture

"Capture sequence failed" every time I try to

It looks like your capture driver works in WDM mode (many ATI drivers
work in this mode only!) but AVIedit expects to use VfW mode. Try to
clear "use legacy VfW" option on the Capture tab of the
Options/Preferences dialog box.
If the VfW mode is the only that works for you, try to change video
format using three buttons in Driver grop of the Capture Options dialog
box. Also, this message pops when too much frames were dropped during

Short answer: Process/Filter/Layer. Set your movie clip the second video
stream. Set your background image as the first stream. Enter desired X and
Y values for layer position, then export the clip.

Is there any way of using this or any

of every frame to personalise it? I have seen avis with this

Any video editor except the Windows Movie Maker does this. In AVIedit
you can use Layer filter.

You can hit gray plus or gray minus key, to get the frames zoomed in,
or zoomed out... They will look smaller.
