Hi,
I was using the demo of Chromanator and when i import files that i have converted to .AVI (only way i can get onto Alam and Chromy) it wont let me open them. I click on the imported media to drag into the timeline and i get one of those Windows Errors talking about sending an error report and everything. If someone could tell me what the problem is that would be great. Or if someone could tell me how to capture my video onto my computer not in WMV format and into .avi that would be great as well.
Thanks a lot

right this has been mentioned about five times this week, It's probably because the one's you are importing are directshow and not the other codec or wateva. now get rid of this and actually hav a look through the forums.
