How do I get rid of an inpoint/oupoint? I've had to start over on videos it's taken me days to do, just because I saved it after I point an in/out point.

You mean the in point and out point of a project? Go to the frame you want, and press "I" to set the in point. Or press "O" to set the out point. Or, press "P" to auto-set the in and out points to the entire length of the project.

If you mean the in or out point of a specific timeline object, you use the crop tool:
and drag either end to a new location.

You might benefit from giving the video tutorials a watch (the Timeline one especially, in this case), or looking through the knowledgebase, or reading the manual (The Essentials > Rendering), as all of them explain working with in and out points in different ways, as well as answering many other potential questions.

thanks, but I needed to know how to get rid of one. I'm doing a test video and I need to get rid of a point that's stopped my video in he middle of it.

You can't get rid of them, you just move them. There always has to be an in point and an out point somewhere. You set each one where you want it, and you are good to go.

So in your case, move to the frame where you actually want the video to stop, and press "O".

Oh thanks. Also, this is sorta off this subject, but how come when I rendered my video onto my computer it saved as just a bunch of pictures and not a video?

You had the Render Settings set to Image Stream, not Avi or Quicktime. Just go to the ERender Sttings tab, and change it.
