My video is about 8 minutes long, with only a couple of effects, quite a few transitions (like if you put a video over another) but that's it. Now, when I go to render it, it says that'll take quite a few hours. (A few of my videos that were made with the same stuff took 3-4 minutes only took an hour or less...)

And it only goes up to 1-2% and the video on the bottom right, the preview, just stops. Twice now I tried to cancel and it never canceled, it just sat there. So I had to open task manager and end it. So then I tried taking half of the video out, and then trying to render it. The same darn thing! It went up to 4 hours of rendering time and wouldn't stop! And it stopped at 2% and the preview didn't even move...

What should I do? If my file is corrupted, I'm going to go insane because I spent so much effort into this home made movie, I don't want it wasted.
