    I'm trying to edit some family movies that were originally on vhs,
    transferred to a DVD, and now I've copied them onto my computer. I've been
    able to edit some clips that look fine in the preview window, but once they
    are published, a green bar covers the bottom half of the screen and the clip
    itself is not cut off but is slightly distorted. Any ideas how to get rid
    of the green bar?

    I found the answer. In case anyone else has this problem, here's what I did.
    I downloaded XVid from its website. Then I followed the directions from
    another website which told me to go to the configure decoder,then output
    options, and choose compatibility renderer.

    I have had the same Problem Please post further info on this. I prefer the
    dvd menu options on this program rather than the plain ones with nero or
    others of the sort. too bad it takes all day to make a movie.

    Here's the website I found by googling my problem:
    http://www.bernzilla.com/item.php?id=884

    When I tried to follow the directions, I was unable to find XVid on my
    computer. So I googled XVid and then went to ( I think) the 2nd entry to
    download XVid. After I downloaded it, I was able to follow the directions
    from bernzilla and when I published a video - Voila!! no green bar!!!!

  9. Sorry but i am really confused,
    you know you download the Xvid link so now you can get in in programmes
    and then do the decoder etc...
    can you give me a link for downloading it cause i cant find it!
    and once you download it what do you do?
    do you save it or open it etc..
    thanks i would be so greatful if you could save me from this annoying
    nightmare!
