Hi there. I am having the same issue. I've never encountered this before. When I render, I get some of my clips showing up black. The audio is still there. Ironically, this is NOT on video clips. It's only on still JPEG images. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening and how to fix it? It's for a graduation slide show TONIGHT, so I'm kind of panicked (!). Thank you!!
See reply #1.
Don't panic. Eddie is right, that more details will help, but let me take a shot in the dark:
Your still images came straight from the digital camera and you did not re-size them to the dimensions of your Project's Frame Size. It is very likely that they are just too large. Re-size to, say 720x480 with a PAR (Pixel Aspect Ratio) of 0.9 for an NTSC 4:3 Project. If I'm correct, this will likely yield better results. BTW, if your original camera files are JPG, I would definitely Save them as either TIFF, or PSD's, when you re-size them.
