      Hello everyone. I am new to the video editting world and to these forums. I recently started using MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 10. I have been editting a video for a few hours now and all of a sudden some weird problems keep me from continuing.

      Problem A – When I drag an AVI file into the timeline I get a pop-up window telling me this "You can’t open HD-Project C:bla blabla blaetc twice", even though that file isn’t currently opened.

      Problem B – Sometimes when I drag an AVI file that contains a video + sound on the timeline, instead of getting "You can’t open HD-Project C:bla blabla blaetc twice", I get a .HDP file that contains only sound.

      Problem C – If I open an AVI file that hasn’t been used in the project so far, I get a message telling me "The format of C:bla blabla blaetc cannot be read by MAGIX Movie Edit Pro!"

      What is confusing is that when I start a new project, every AVI file that didn’t work in my movie’s project now work perfectly.

      Any help will be GREATLY appreciated. Hopefully it’s something I’m doing wrong. πŸ™

      Where did the AVI files come from? In other words what kind of camera do you use?

      You’re not using an HDV type camera and your trying to edit this in a program that can’t support HDV are you? I don’t know how much you know but there is a HUGE difference between standard DV and HDV.

      You know I was just helping another person who was having problems with this same program. I’m starting to think it’s nothing but problems. I did suggest that he add more RAM because he only had 512meg and that seemed to sove his problem.

      How much do you have?

      RAM

      I’m not doing anything serious right now. Only working on a game video, so my AVI files come from FRAPS. I have 1gb of RAM, P4 3.2Ghz processor, and an ATI Radeon 9800 pro graphics card.

      I’m not sure I understand. What do you mean, "game video" and what is "FRAPS"?

      Do you mean like a computer game and you’re trying to use AVI files from that game?

      Yeah, FRAPS is the program I use to record what I’m currently playing. FRAPS saves the recorded content into AVI files.

      Hummm… interesting!

      Well I don’t know anything about this FRAPS program but the problem could be codec or format related. This FRAPS program could be using a codec or a format that your NLE doesn’t recognize or like.

      The thing is, I already created and saved a video using AVI files coming from FRAPS without any problems. With my current project, I currently have 10 minutes of work done with AVI files that were made with FRAPS and the problems started happening all of a sudden.

      By the way, sorry if you have trouble understanding some things I say. I’m a french canadian and my english isn’t perfect yet.

      **EDIT**: Could it be a setting I accidentally changed in my current project since everything works fine when I start a new one?

      You might have something there. Changing crucial settings in the middle of a project can cause unpredictable problems. Usually NLE software programs create certain rendered or conformed files in a way which was determined by settings you did when you first started setting your project up. If you changed the rules all of a sudden, these existing temp files might not work anymore. That would seem to make sense.

      btw: You’re easy to understand. A lot easier than trying to understand my wife! X-D

      Heheh.

      What if I exported the unfinished video as an AVI file, and made a new project which would be the other half. Could I use let’s say umm…VirtualDub to compile them one more time for them to form a single video?

      Boy… Because you’re working with programs that I’m not familar with, I’m afraid I can’t help you. Up to this point I was drawing conclusions from known basic theories.

      Sorry!
