Hello I absolutely love this software but
I have a problem.. at the moment i dont have a credit card and want
to purchase Avi Edit.. do you think I could go to a local computer
store and order it via them or is this not possible?.. help would
be appreciated other wise I have to use the other pathetic avi
editors.. and that makes life a bit more tougher :(
Probably the service that ShareIt offers you when you want to
register AVIedit, is very adequate. They accept checks, wire transfers,
phone and fax orders, and also credit cards. So, you do not necessarily
have to use your cc online or offline. Please consult our site Order page.

Hello, I was the guy who you called a "virus" lol after I complained
about the virus check... but I have realised what an important
little code this is embedded in the software which checks to see
if the file is modified... well you see I learned from a higher
source of a horrible virus called W32 WEIRD... it is a virus which
goes thru EVERY SINGLE executable file in your comp and modifies it
and spreads itself so it can cause harm after harm.... to all
you people who get this virus check message.. please it is
DOING YOU THE WORLD OF GOOD and letting you know
you got a VIRUS!!.. my advice is get AV software
this program will kill the virus i assure you...
for it has saved my computer.. and i am overjoyed.. now,
no one can take away my Avi edit from me....my only
true AVI love... Avi edit (sniff sniff)
Really, AVIedit does a self-check and the message it pops up
not always means the real virus activity tracks. However you could get
the same message on an overclocked system (due to RAM errors or HDD
data transfer failures), broken file, logical partition errors, FAT
errors and due to alot of other reasons.
This only should turn you carefull.

Hi & thanks a lot for Aviedit. I use it
since - I think - 2 years now.
Just a short note: www.computerchannel.de is dead & closed,
so you maybe have to change that link. But I downloaded the
latest version from your russian site - the download was
fine & fast.
Thank you. The broken link was removed. In fact, we're using three
different ISP's to host our files for better download. We expect no problems
there. Though, ComputerChannel.de was very friendly and useful site.
It's real pain it closed.

Hi, I think your products are great, and
I was thinking about purchasing AVI Edit, but what I really need
it for is my digital camera. I have an Intel CS760 digital camera,
that has the capability to record movie files with sound in
AVI format. The problem is, is many of the files that I have
saved don't have the correct frame rate information embedded in them.
All the data is there, but it only displays one frame in the movie player
when I play it. Your AVI frate program has allowed me to fix many of
these files, but only the video portions, the audio remains messed
up. When I look at the file in the (demo) version of AVI Edit, it
shows both a video and an audio track. Is there some way to do
a similar operation on the audio track with AVI Frate or AVI Edit?
I will be more than happy to pay for any product that can help
me recover my sound and video.
Thanks in advance,

Unfortunately AVIedit was not designed especially to recover damaged
movies (even if it offers some options for this), so probably there is
no common way to repair any clips. This depends on how exactly they are
broken, and maybe we'd discuss this topic by e-mail... let us a try :)

Hey Alex - this looks great.
I was using MovieWow to edit the clips from my Sony Mpeg4 camera,
but it doesn't let you change the order of your clips - so making
changes is a real pain! AVIEdit's timeline feature is exactly what
I want, and I was delighted to find the transitions in there as
well (at first I thought there weren't any until I started
overlapping clips by accident!) One problem is that suddenly
the TimeLine editor now won't let me add any more clips or
perform any other function - it says "Trial Version -
buy now to be unlimited!" But I still have 30 days
trial time. I really think I will register this
software, but I would like to be able to complete one short
test movie to be sure it will work well for
me in the long term - I have only been able to use timeline
for 5-10 minutes before it locked me out and that is the
main feature I'm looking for. I hope you can help, because
this looks like the right software for me.
Hi Mark. The trial AVIedit version has some limits on Timeline editor,
you are right. But there is no real problem with evaluation because
you can arrange two or three clips the way you prefer, change the
default transitions to customized ones, apply filters, save the project,
make out the movie etc. There is no algorithm
difference, are you using three clips or five or fifteen :) Also, if you
need to check the big movie creation, you can make it out of two or three
hour-sized clips placed on the timeline. There is no difference in trial
and registered version, except that you can add only a few clips at a time.
Say, when you're trying to split one of three existing clips, you will get
four clips (i.e. one more clip), then five, six etc. Of course trial
version will suggest you to register :) this is why it "locked" you after
a few minutes... Please note, there is no logo on screen or
resulting movie length limits.

Are you for real?
1. I was NOT treating this as a nag screen .. it failed to run .. do you
2. Your check for virus infection on the executable is severely flawed .. AND
3. Why do you even bother performing a check on the file ....
Do you think we are all newbie's and have never used a computer before
and require your ever so caring application check?
Wouldn't you at least even recognise that many of us have used a
computer once or twice in our lives (for me 23yrs in fact) and
may even have half an idea on how to protect our computers
from viruses? Your check is SO insulting it's not even funny ...
How about you take a great product (not that I can tell because of
your PATHETIC virus checking algorithm) and assume that most people
who really believe they know what they are doing will actually
virus check the software after download.
Also .. it's as though you are admiting your web site is unsecure and
there is a possibility that SOMEONE may upload a faulty and even virus
infected version onto your web site .. do you have no faith in your
own website even??
HOW MANY SALES HAVE YOU MISSED OUT ON BECAUSE OF THIS UNREALISTIC STAND
Too late .. I purchased Adobe Premiere instead .. your loss buddy.
- Regarding your Q. 1,2 and 3. We wrote, giving a message about a corrupted
file is better than running it anyway. Do you disagree ?
- You will have true fun not with our self-integrity check algorithm,
rather than someday you'll omit one :)
- We said nothing about our site security. It's your hot fantasy :)
And the file wasn't infected: it failed CRC check.
- We didn't lose any sales due to built-in virus checks.
- Your joke re: Adobe Premiere is too rough. Just
to make you happy :)

i like your product a lot but am having
trouble with something. when using the process filter to lighten a file,
it works fine on small files, but i have a very large file (700 mb)
that loses the audio when i try to run the color filter. i
thought it was a codec problem, so i tried to convert the file
(using mystic media's blaxe converter) to a codec that aviedit has no
trouble with (on a small files anyway) but the result from the
blaze converter also had no audio. i am wondering if the size
of the file is what is causing the problem? i am using the
sept 22, 2001 build (version 2.6?) on a win98se pc (amd athlon 750 mhz
processor with 96 mb ram)
the file giving me the trouble has the following properties:
audio: mpeg layer 3
44,100 hz stereo
video: 480x208, 24 bits
143551 frames 29.970 fr/sec
146 kb/sec divx (v?) codec
i think this is divx v 4.3 but cant say for sure.
There are a few ideas...
In fact, AVIedit can handle up to 4Gb
avi files, but they must be not OpenDML avi's. Unfortunately, most
current avi files, that exceed about 1Gb in size, most likely are OpenDML-
compliant, in other words, they include multiple data pieces inside,
and multiple RIFF headers. In this case only the first data chunk will be
read, and if your sound track is outside the 1st RIFF data piece, then
probably it will be lost. If the (less than) 1Gb file has the same structure,
the problem can arise, too.
Also, the DV Type1 avi files do not have separate audio track at all. Each
small piece of audio data is stored in the same data block where the frame
picture data is stored. When you compress this DV avi to DivX or another
format, you save the picture but lose the sound.
The solution is probably the same for #1 and #2 - try converting
the file to Type2 AVI, it is claimed as the most compatible avi
format around there...

I get into quake and type /cl_avidemo 25,
and then it feels like i'm getting 5fps and my ping ping skyrockets to
250 (i'm usually at 30-50)
i've tried different numbers for the fps, but i get the same result,
anything i'm doing wrong?
any help would be greatly apprecated...
It seems your PC can not provide a higher speed while writing demo frames.
Remember, that quake wasn't designed to run simultaneously with other
CPU and/or HD performance-hungry tasks like speedisk, archivers etc. - and
writing demo to the HD means nearly the same high load...
Note, with 640x480x16 @ 25 fps your system trhoughput will be (or must be) 13,5 megabytes
per second - it isn't that bad!

I can't get it to work with Windows 2000
at all. The program will run but when I try to work with a file,
the file name is displayed at the top but I can't see anything.
Rolling the mouse over the window produces a horizontal black strip
where the pictures should be. This disappears when the cursor is
moved away. What could be the problem here?
Most likely, it's a missing video codec. To see what codec was used
to compress your clip, use Edit/Info menu item. Some popular
codecs will be detected by AVIedit even if they are not installed yet.
You will see the name, then download and install the suggested codec.
The same applies when you do not hear the sound (but the clip
includes a soundtrack).

It would be fine if you describe the exact options you missed in
command line (maybe writing to us directly). AVIedit can open avi
file if the name is given, but extra command-line features would
be [probably] not very popular in Windows world... who knows.

quick question about AVIFrate...it can slow
down the frame rate just fine. however, when I speed up the
framerate, the length of the video doesn't get any shorter...it
just gets to the last frame really fast and then keeps playing.
Obviously something goes wrong... Could you please send us the
AVIdiag log file,
created for this avi clip ? Even better, send both logs, before and
after the change...

Hi I need a program that can reverse frames,
like playing a video from the ending to the beginning,
can AVIedit do this?
When you click Export, hold down SHIFT key. The frames will be written
in the reverse order. Or, use Options/Preferences dialog box and
check the same-named option. It is possible either to export to a series
of stills, or to the new avi file.

Great App for such a small size! Just
one problem i have that is global on my pc. In AVIedit along
with Animation shop and flash 5, i can't save anything
as any AVI. In aviedit, i tried to save as an avi, and
it says "this format doesn't support data compression" or
something like that. I even selected full
frames (uncompressed), and it still did it. Anim
shop and flash had similar errors, saying they couldn't
write the file. Does anyone know how to fix it?
I want to take full advantage of aviedit :)
It sounds fantastic. Some codecs can fail to write your
movie when it is of unsupported frame width, height or
color depth, but we can't believe all the software and even
uncompressed write failed, too.
Just a quick guess: run our
AVIdiag utility, see if there are missing Registry keys for AVI and/or
RIFF handlers and if yes, send an e-mail to us.

I just downloaded the Aviedit v.3.3. It's
pretty handy, but i wanted to join two avi file. I looked throught
the help option, it only has how to split a avi file and
others but not join the avi files, could you please help me? Thak you!
AVIedit online Help file includes FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) topic.
There is a question about wrong made files join. It's what you probably
need. In a few words, you need to drag-n drop your second file to AVIedit window,
then click Edit/Select all, then drag-n drop your first file into the same
window. Now, save all to the new file. (The selection of the streams
ensures that your first file will be inserted before the second file. AVIedit
inserts stream before the selection, or places after the same-type stream
when no selection found...)

I just purchased AVIEDIT. I Like it a lot.
I also just downloaded the Morgan MJPEG cedec from Morgan Multimedia http://www.morgan-multimedia.com.
After creating a couple of AVI with it, I cannot edit them with AVIEDIT. The AVIEDIT hangs.
...I've lots more questions too! But later ;-)
Dear Tony, being a registered user, you can get faster response by
writing to support team directly.
Regarding the problem you mention, it would be important to see
whether other codecs work for you, or not. And what's the movie frame
size, fps etc. What options did you set for the MM codec and for AVIedit.
Please keep in mind, now AVIedit tries to handle MJPEG files internally
when no software or hardware codec found. Maybe MM codec is installed as
a secondary codec, or something other goes wrong...
Please, again, better you use our direct e-mail instead of Forum.

OK. I have to correct myself. AVIedit
incorporates the blue box option, but it is almost of no use.
I think that AVIedit could be the best chromakey soft piece if
it only had following features.
- WYSIWYG preview - when you change i.e. chromakey color
it is immediately seen on the preview.
- Possibility to manipulate the layer - shrink,
enlarge, rotate, crop the effect rectangle.
- Color probe - to click on the screen and get the
chromakey color instead of selecting it from menu.
AVIedit is such a great base for chromakeying and there is a
huge demand for properly working chromakey-program in
a good (under 100$) price.
It's just fine that you tried to use our chroma key feature.
We always need your feedback.
Regarding the questions, it is possible to apply current settings
by click on Proof button, without close the filter dialog box.
It isn't an instant preview, but it helps. Spatial effects on layer
are not implemented yet [...maybe will be]. Color probe works for W9x and
Millennium, if you click the button with Ctrl key hold down. Move
the mouse around the screen, then click somewhere at desired point. ColorPicker
can't get colors from W2000 and XP desktops due to GetPixel() failure.
We think it is Microsoft' bug, while Microsoft neither claims it a
feature nor the bug. Will wait for service packs... Keyframes in ChromaKey
were not planned (it works like linear), however this could be a nice
feature. Thank you.

a feature. I have seen no good program for it. Even Ultimatte
isn't as good as it should be. Boris FX is the
best but it is sooo unstable....
Any ideas?? Thanks
AVIedit has some kind of blue box filter. However currently you can
use chroma keying only in "raw" editing mode. Timeline editor does
not support this feature, but the Layer feature works for stills.

I have used AVIedit for a few years now,
it always produces excellent results, and is very easy to use.
Yesterday I downloaded the latest version, but am unable to capture
video. The error message tells me that there is no capture
driver. My video card is the ATI All in Wonder Pro 128,
and I am using the latest drivers for win 98. Can you help please?
In their latest drivers ATI has removed the Video for Windows
capture support. They said, the DirectShow based capture is better
(by the way, it requires about a PIII 600 MHz cpu, while VfW worked
fine even on a PII 400 MHz) and all the users must follow the way
that ATI thought right :(
You can change AVIedit driver detection routine using
Options/Preferences dialog box, Capture tab. Check or
clear use legacy VfW option to either enable or disable Video
for Windows capture driver search. This way, you can use WDM (Windows Driver
Model) capture, also know as DirectShow capture, but the features
set in this mode is rather beggar... Please be aware of that.

AviEdit Divx on W2k
The Divx codec is not being displayed in the list of available codecs.
Any tips anyone ?
The content of the list of codecs depends on what video format you have
to compress. Many codecs like some even frame dimensions, that are
multiplies of 8 or 16 pixels. In other words, the 352x288 frame will be
compressed, while 347x273 won't (even if it looks smaller).
Some codecs do not accept truecolor images, and some fail to compress
paletted ones. It depends...

As opposed to thinking up witty comebacks
for people who aren't satisfied with the product (aviedit),
perhaps AM soft should recognize that people are having problems
with the software, and that the help file leaves much to
be desired. If the goal is to release a product people
can utilize and enjoy, maybe a professional approach is
required, as opposed to the current immature elitist
You are right. However please try walking in our shoes. One has
the problem in splitting files. Ok. This topic was discussed about four
times here at Forum. This topic is described in Help file in "How Do I..."

Your movie was created somewhere on Chinese warez download site.
Your operating system didn't have fonts to display stream name in Chinese.
This is why you saw the question marks.
The [MP43] label means you need Microsoft MPEG4 V3 codec installed.
Until that you can't see the video frames.
