Output longer than video

Postby jcm48 » Sat Nov 12, 2022 11:30 pm

I'm having a heck of a time with the length of my video. I watched your YouTube video on "stray frames," and I thought[i][/i] I got the length down to the 2 minutes the video really is. (The market stopped when it should have.) But when I went to export it, the gray box on the right says that it's still 6 minutes long! I cleared my cache, closed the program, re-started my computer...but when I re-loaded the video and tried to export it, it STILL shows 6 minutes. It also shows 6 minutes. Even in my main folders when I check the properties of the file, it says 6 minutes. Any idea what's going on???

Most likely your Work Area Bar is longer than your movie.

Press the backslash key (above Enter/Return) so that your entire movie is visible on your timeline. Then double-click on the very top of the Timeline, near the top of the ticker numbers, so that the Work Area Bar (the light-colored area above the timeline) snaps to the same length as your movie.

Once you've done that, your output should definitely match your movie length.
