So I presented a class project using the muvizu software. it was cool for my first animation, but video joiner would not allow me to connect all of the videos together, my audio was bad, one scene would not load /render, in addition to the program causing my computer to run slowly and overheat constantly. The video joiner is reporting error after error. this is very frustrating since i put a lot of work into this class project. I am not trying to complain, I am very thankful to the innovators of this software. I am just looking for help so my grade can be salvaged.

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

The application must also be compiled with debugging

I must admit that I've never used video joiner as it's too limiting. Most of us use something like Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere or Avid Studio to arrange all our AVI files created in Muvizu. This will also allow you to substitute audio and generally make the whole thing look a bit better.

Although Vegas and Studio cost money there are a few free ones out there. I would see how you get on with Windows Movie Maker which is part of Windows Live, or WAX (although I've never used either !)

Hope this helps

Hi nutriproject,

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with Muvizu.

First I will give you advice to work around the problems your are experiencing.
ukBerty mentioned Windows movie maker which is a good alternative to the video joiner. I would say grab that software so you can work on your project, I assume you have a deadline.

About the audio, I know you're using Audacity. Make sure to turn the volume a down a little bit because sometimes the audio is exported too loud and that can cause problems.

To join videos using the "Video Joiner" is very easy, but there are a few requirements. For example, videos have to be the same resolution ( 640 x 360 for example).

Please update your graphics card and sound card drivers to see if it makes Muvizu to run smoothly.

Please let us know if things improve and good luck for your project.

Hi Nutriproject

The problem you are getting is caused by the function SafeNativeMethods.Gdip.GdipImageRotateFlip trying to operate on locked bits. There are two reasons they could be locked.

The first, indicated by your machine getting hot, is that you haven't got much memory to spare and .Net's garbage collector is shuffling memory around. The heat could be coming from all the context switching between native code (the avi or windows stuff) and .net to do the imagerotateflip.

The second is that the codec you are using is doing something nasty. There is or was a problem with the K-Lite pack 7.0.4 which caused the same problem, so you might go for an older or newer one, or more simply choose another codec. I have had most luck with a lagarith lossless codec.

I haven't used the video joiner myself as I prefer to get the clips and mix them and the audio in Vegas.
