Press the \ key to show your entire movie on the timeline. Does the Work Area Bar (the light gray bar along the top of your timeline) extend past the end of your movie?
If so, this is often an indicator that you've got some stray clips out there beyond the end of your timeline that are telling the program your movie is longer than it actually is.
Click and drag over the area of your timeline beyond the end of your movie and then press the Delete button. If you've got all your stray clips, the Work Area Bar should snap back to cover only the area of your actual movie.
From the looks of your timeline, you probably don't have stray clips beyond the end of your movie.
When you Publish & Share, does the movie always come out 6 minutes long?
Yes, seems to run WAY over the length that I show here....... IDK LOL bit strange
Just for the heck of it........ I opened a NEW project.... imported all the same files........trimmed them to approx same lenght ( about 2 min 6 sex ) tried it....and it worked as expected.
So...... my original project would seem to be corrupted somehow.......
I am curious as to how, and how to correct this yet.
Well, even though your Work Area Bar doesn't extend over it, I'd say it's pretty likely your timeline does have some stray clips out beyond your movie.
Click your mouse and drag across all of the tracks on all of your timeline beyond the end of your movie and then press Delete. I'll bet this will fix your problem.
You'll know it has because, when you press the \ key, you won't see all that empty space beyond your movie.
I removed my TITLE Jpeg picture, and that got rid of the problem..... very weird, cause it was only at front of video, and only for about 2 seconds......but..... removing it and putting it back in, fixed the issue.
So, as you indicated, that really was the issue....something "longer" than it seemed...... ( and for sure.......not visible.)
Thanks for your prompt replies..... and help.
