|I'd also consider converting to another format. MPEG are not the best format to be working with. It's all to do with the way frame information is stored (or not stored, as the case may be). MPEG doesn't store information for every frame (a simplified explanation), which can cause problems in editing/compositing programs. For Moviemaker, I'd go with WMV files. There are many converters available that can do MPEG2WMV (even a few freeware).|
