Hi again, Thanks again for the help in getting my All-in-wonder 7500 up and running! I captured about 30 minutes of VHS into an mpeg-1 format to begin playing with. The video needs some dead time removed from it and to cut some from the beginning and end. I have downloaded VirtualDub and TMPGEnc and need some help. It seems that VirtualDub will only edit the AVI format. I can load an MPG but not cut and edit it. Is this true? BTW, where do I find an operators manual? TMPGEnc will allow you to convert file types, but not edit the file. Is this true? Again, is there a manual? I also have Ulead VideoStudio 5.0 and I still haven't figured it out. Is there a program (freeware?) that will allow you to edit an MPG1 or MPG2 file? Any guidance would be helpful.
