I have a problem. I usually use uncompressed AVIs for my rendering format when importing them to alamDV. They all used to work fine, but now every time I import an uncompressed AVI to AlamDV, Alam splits the clip down the middle vertically. It puts the right half on the left. And the left half on the right. I also notice a small strip that looks like it was cut from somewhere else on the clip and put on the bottom of the screen. And this is only with uncompressed AVIs. Can somebody tell me why Alam is doing this?
Thanks

Here is a picture of what I'm talking about:

one time this happened to me because i was trying to render my effects into the same file name as the original file to save space. That caused a error and that happened...

I've never seen that problem before - does the movie file play normally in Media Player? If it has only just started doing it, then something must have changed from when it used to be fine.

It actually happens off and on. Sometimes Alam dosn't do anything to the clip and sometimes it dose this. I can't figure out why it's doing that.

No, it didn't just start doing it. It's happened several times before.
