The new video should be only about 3:30 in duration, but PE-10 still thinks that it's 1:30:00. How can I terminate the new video in such a way that the proper duration is established?
I don't think I understand your question, but did you delete the part you cut off?
Expand the timeline and make sure that you don't have any orphaned files.
