i recently bought an external dvd re-writer. Every time i try to burn a film to a cd the volume is re-adjusted by a couple of seconds so it spoils the film, i was just wondering if it was a problem with my re-writer so something else. Thanks

This is usually a problem with the software.

Lag is when the audio and video don't match up when you are editing. Which makes it a lot harder to sync the sound with the video.

WOO WHATS THIS!!! THE SOUND DOESN'T MATCH UP WITH THE VIDEO!!!

Ya, the problem is if your working with large files with many tracts you home computer can't handel it all at once so you can get some lag depending on your computer system. The best software that has the least amount of lag is the Sony Vegas 6 software. Yes, it is expensive for the home user. There are people who sell it for decent prices on Ebay but even then it is not cheap.

So how do you fix this with the software you have?

If you keep your files small and do a lot of rendering you should be able to avoid this lag.

What I mean by "do a lot of rendering" is for example, you have a file with many tracts of video or audio, render the clip to create a clip with only one video and audio tract and then add more tracts. This will compress all those tracts into one that will be a lot easier for your computer to handle, and therefor less or no lag. It's the best you can do with the software you have.

Start reading this website and you will understand.

The first large picture shows 12 video tracks and 2 audio tracks for a very short part of a video.
