I made a slide show/video to give to my sister for her graduation. I want to put it on DVD. So, I've tried several times to save it as a movie file (in WMM, File>Save Movie File). However, when I do this, it finishes, but when I try to watch it afterwards, it gets about halfway and the picture at the halfway point is upside down. It also stops at that point on the timer, however, the music still plays. As I said, I've tried it a few times and it's done it every time. Any ideas as to what the problem could be? Thanks for any help.

Hi. What format are you saving as? I think the default is "Best for this computer" or "Best quality for this computer". Change it over to High-Quality Video (NTSC). That's the standard in video. Save it that way, and see if it makes a difference. If not, look on another computer. For some reason, evey once in a while when I make a video on my computer, if I play it, the timing is off and everything. If I play it somewhere else though, it seems fine. Give that a shot and give me a shout.
