Trouble with Trimmer
I have a problem with opening clips in the trimmer. I am using Vegas Platinum Studio 7 Build 38.
I have filmed some effects to use as backgrounds for menus in Architect 4, they are loaded into Vegas Studio as .avi files with the intention of trimming to length and then rendering as mpeg2 (giving a smaller file size ) for use as a motion background. If I trim the clips to the length I want on the time line, I can then render to .mpeg, when I play the .mpeg in Architect the clip is the length of the original clip before any trimming but the bits that have been trimmed off the ends are rendered as black blank screen.
I tried to load the clips into trimmer both from the timeline and also from the explorer window. As soon as the .avi clip is loaded into trimmer I get an Error message saying An exception has occurred.
Exception OxC0000005 (access violation )

There are many more lines of information following this.
I can play the .avi clips as Motion movie backgrounds but would like to trim the clips and reduce the file size, am I missing some stage out or is this a program problem?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
I should mention that I have used Movie Studio for over a year but I never normally use the trimmer as I find that I can edit clips to my satisfaction on the timeline.
Thanks in anticipation
