Thanks for the reply. Should have mentioned in my earlier post that even though PP wouldn't import the edited clips I could still play them in Media Player so the actual AVI file seemed OK
I confess I'm struggling a bit to understand how PP works, not unusual at my age!
If I edit the clips and save each one to a different name in case I want to use it in another package, do I need to do anything to ensure that the changes are reflected in the final output or does PP automatically do this from the timeline?
As for the second part of your question.
As I said, I had to split the capture from the camcorder into three pieces in order to delete the bad footage I didn't need.
Ideally, I'd like to stitch the pieces together again so that the sequence is one clip, not three e.g I end up with one AVI file. This might be easier to work with in another package or if trying to play back in Media Player for example.
I'm assuming that having all three clips in one timeline consecutively e.g video 1 will achive this?
