    Doesn't work. After figuring out the unintuitive process to open my video file, I successfully shortened it. I tried to "Render" the file since the more intuitive "Save As" or "Export" isn't an option, and it said "Rendering Failed. Failed to Open File." I think I might just have to buy a Mac. This is ridiculous.

    02-24-2016 2nd Rendering DVD_Movie.avi Played Back In Windows Media, 44:40 Mins = 5.7GB, Took Forever Again During Rendering DVD_Movie.avi 1/2 Way Through Playing In Win Media, Halted,Computer Is Running Low On Memory or Could Not Read Codec. My Desktop Is Very Capable Of Rendering HD Movies w/Store Bought Video Editing Software Requirements On The Market Today. The Pics/jpgs/Movs Speed/Timelines Were Faster Than In Creating/Editing Before Rendering, During The MOV's, Quality Came & Went, Jittery Pixtels. Might Have Been The 29.5fps Todate Received No Feedback/Support When Attempting. Time To Uninstall Vidiot. So Sorry, Appeared To Have Potential. 02-23-2016 Video Creation/Editing Is New To Me, Got Through A lot So Far, Need Some Help, The Program Help Is Very Useful, Some Terminologies So Far Are Vague To Me I'am Going To Assume What Currently Is Vague Is Common Knowledge In The Editing Software Community. Todate, Have Rendered DVD Movie.avi (MPEG4, MP3) 44:40 Minutes In Preview, During Rendering DVD Movie, Rendering Sequence DVD Movie Frame 0-80186, Took All Night, Still Rendering 2pm Before Work, Was Finished Sometime During My 8 Hour Job/Work, Selected 29fps,(Next Attempt Will Be 25fps.) Rest Was Installation Default Settings, Rendering Created DVD_Movie.avi 5.7GB. Played DVD_Movie.avi In Windows 8.1 Pro Media Player, Looks & Sounds Great, However, Another Learning Curve, The Added/Created jpg's & mov's Are No Longer In The Correct Timing Sequence That Were Created/Previewed Before Rendering DVD Movie I'am Suspecting This Is My Doing's/Self Impalement, Found Nothing On Youtube/Forums w/Vidiot. Open For Suggestions/Comments/Help Ver 0.3.14 Win 8.1 Pro, i7-4790k, Nivida GTX-970_4GB, 32GB, PSU Corsair RM850 Gold, Samsung SSD's 02-23-2016

    Very straightforward and to the point. Would be nice if it was able to edit the speed of clips (up to 64x speed would be ideal, especially for those of us who make timelapse videos) Thanks if you read
