Solved Wondershare Video Editor 4.9.0 Need help please..

April 7, 2015 at 08:11:08
Specs: Windows 7
Have created a few videos and added mp3 audio tracks to the time line too through Wondershare Editor 4.9.0. After adding the music the duration matched the video length perfectly however if I cut and pasted a music segment in the timeline to transfer to another location within the video to better fit the production the total duration would go way beyond actual time. I did not take away any of the music.. just repositioned it. I know duration can be adjusted with transition between video images but it does very little to help with overall duration of both music and audio. I need to know how to change duration of the total edited actual time of the video so it will line up with actual video time in Wondershare. Will appreciate some thoughts on this.

✔ Best Answer
You will need to hang on until someone who knows that particular program comes along. In the meantime you could always play with Microsoft Windows Movie Maker (from a copy) as it can do this sort of thing quite well.

If it was not included with Win7 you can get it here:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Contacted support some time ago and was told the file was corrupt and to create the production in a new file. I created the video timeline that provided real time duration then added the music that began with video beginning and end points. No issue with duration time.. however when I began cutting.. pasting and moving the footage around, duration time doubled. I noticed when editing and moving one segment from the beginning or even the middle of the video the total audio segments beyond the edit on the audio time line would jump beyond the end of actual video footage and is probably the reason for excess duration increase since it added the time of each music segment that exceeded actual video time. One of my most recent productions was 14:24 actual video time that went to 3:24. Lots of blank video to view and would be unhappy viewers led to believe they were viewing three hours of footage. While editing i was sure to forward in the time line and remove or reposition any edits that may have moved up beyond the end of the video. Even after removing excess, the duration stays the same with no way to reduce it. Submitted another ticket to Wondershare to see if it can be resolved. Have checked online in several places with no clear answers. Still hoping someone with video editing tech knowledge may have experienced something similar and may share thoughts that help. Thanks again.

Thank you very much and will look the content over. Have been trouble shooting. I created my video time line first. Next I prepared my choice of five or more audio tracks with no intent to delete once they are added to the audio time line. Then I use "add clip" to place the first audio mp3 of choice from Wondershare Menu to my audio time line. Since my total production is 30 minutes in length and the sound track of choice is usually around two minutes I naturally have to add additional music tracks. I found that using my beginning, mid and end point audio sliding arrow are key to place audio tracks and eliminates excess duration. After placing my first audio music track I place my arrow just a fraction beyond the end of the music track. This provides an easy listening transition beyond the each track. Then I choose my second music track of choice from the menu and click "add to." The music clip goes directly to arrow placement and does not add excess duration time. Before I was choosing an audio file and clicking "add to". The audio track would fit directly next to the previous music track so that there was no easy listening transition. Then I would slide the second track manually. After multiple times doing this within the production time line the duration time goes way beyond actual video time. So placing the point arrow just a fraction after each segment prior to clicking "add to" from your audio list works and does not budge total duration time of both video and audio. Neat to have found this out. Any bit of excess I trim and fade to a nice even conclusion at the end of the video footage. If duration time still is effected it is important to forward in the blank video portion to see it there are fragments of edited work that should be deleted. Also sometimes there are fragments that are not visible to the eye that need a link and tool that Wondershare provides in order to view them. As far as basic duration issues, my self taught method seems to work well. Am posting this since it is neat to have found a solution and am hoping that my experience may help someone else some time. I know the link you provided will help and perhaps provide a better understanding and remedy. Thank you again.

Thank you Derek. It is an artistic extension of my talents as an oil on canvas artist.. poet, author and musician. Very much enjoyed putting it together.
