Q.  I have edited a movie using Video Edit Magic, but the MPJ file can only be played on my own computer.  How can I save my movie so that other people can watch it?

The MPJ file is not a movie.  It is the Project file.  It contains information about the editing you have done.  To create a new movie, click File >> Make Movie to open the Make Movie Wizard.


How can I use video from a DVD with Video Edit Magic?

To edit video from a DVD, you must first copy the video to your hard disk.  On a video DVD, there is a folder named “VIDEO_TS”.  This contains at least one and possibly several files named VTS_##_#.VOB, where the “#” will be a number.  These files contain the audio and video.  Copy these files to a folder on your hard disk, then add them to the Media Collection in Video Edit Magic.  If the DVD has chapters, you may be required to convert the VOB files into AVI format to edit the video.  Video Edit Magic will automatically open a conversion wizard to assist you in doing so.
