Windows Movie Maker sucks.

I think I'm going to have to give up on the vid for now. WMM once again has decided that it doesn't like my files, and it won't open any of my vid files. So, unless I can make the entire vid in one sitting (which I can't), then it's pretty much useless to me.

I tried to look on the online forum for WMM, and it looks like someone else recently had this problem too - but it is unresolved. They suggested uninstalling and reinstalling WMM (which I did), but that didn't work. So, yeah...other than that, another forum suggested that it might be a driver issue - but I am not a computer-person. I really don't know how to go and fiddle around with all these things, nor do I want to. I kind of think programs should just DO WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. (I guess I should have invested in a Mac.)

So, yeah...I'm super bummed. I really wanted to make this vid, but I just don't know how it's going to be possible if my program keeps crashing on me.

My other option, I suppose, is to spend money and get Sony Vegas or whatever that program is called. I would do that, only I'm kind of completely broke these days. So yeah...not sure what to do. I guess I'll just test WMM every couple of days and see if it's suddenly decided to start working. 

ETA: nwspaprtaxis to the rescue, by suggesting that I look into open-source software! ALL IS NOT LOST, it is just a little delayed while I research and learn new programs.
