This type of problem generally indicated a codec issue. Check the codec that your footage is in, if its h.264 or a variant of mpeg, then that's likely the issue. Those codecs are intended for playback, and not for editing, so simply exporting the footage from your video editor to a good editing codec should clear it up. Also, please let us know what format the footage is in (.mov or .avi), as it will be useful in helping you out further.

Thanks. As I mentioned, this is likely a codec issue, so I need to know what codec the .avi file is in. Unfortunately I'm on a Mac, so I can't offer specific instructions to find this out if you don't know how. Perhaps one of the Windows users out there can offer some guidance?

I really have no Idea how to check but i believe it's in a standard dv-avi (NTSC) playback codec

After you export from WMM, does the clip play correctly in Windows Media Player? Media Player should have some way to view the info for the clip, including its codec info.
