Open your movie in Windows Movie Maker (WMM). If your "movie tasks" side bar is not shown then do the following to expose it. <BR>Toolbar > View > Task Pane <BR> <BR>Under Item #3 "Finish Movie" <BR>Select "Save to my computer" <BR>Enter in the relevant info and then click "NEXT" <BR>Check "Show more Choices" <BR>Click on "Other Settings" <BR>From the dropdown select "DV-AVI (NTSC) <BR>Click "NEXT" <BR> <BR>That will output your WMM video as an .avi file which can then be imported into Sonic DVD. <BR> <BR>I have never used sonic before... will it encode the .avi into an mpeg for you? <BR> <BR>I hope that helps? <BR> <BR> <BR>

hey thanks for the info but it didnt help. <BR>I do all that but at the end once i click next it says"this project contains source files that are missing or that have been modified after import your project cannot be saved as a movie until the source files have been located or deleted from the project". <BR> <BR> <BR>this movie is making me frustrated its been a year since i finished making it and im still trying to burn it <BR>

Where are all you original video files? Are they still on your hard drive? It sounds like some of the clips you have on your timeline have been deleted or are missing? <BR> <BR>

no all of them are on my hard drive because if one movie wosnt on it would have an "x" in place of it.
