I have recorded several clips on a Flip MinoHD camcorder. I can import them into the software with no problem. I can add them to the timeline, cut them, preview them, but as soon as I align 2 clips next to each other, the system stops responding and I have to exit. I recall from previous uses that normally a box comes up and asks me if I want to apply videomerge and I select no. This box no longer comes up. The video files are MP4 so they should be compatible and after being frustrated with this for several hours last night I reimaged my computer and reloaded Premeire Elements 7, but the problem still continues. Please let me know if anybody has experience with this or what I can do to fix it. Thanks, Bill
Version 7 isn't designed to work with video from Flip camcorders. That function wasn't added until version 9.
If you upgrade to version 10 and set up your project using the Flip project settings, you'll find that editing goes easy and with none of the problems you're experiencing.
