The specific steps for moving each type of available effect can be found in this knowledgebase article.

Use a default setting. Most cameras use 29.97fps not 15. A framerate of 15 is incredibly slow in comparison. Fix the framerate. Make sure to hit the "RAM" button before you render your video so that all the preview frames are rendered. Let me know if you are still having a problem.

Why are you using a width of 640? Aren't most videos done in 720 by 480? Try using the default NTSC DV settings.

Keep in mind, this isn't some sort of instant messaging board. It isn't like there is someone monitoring this site 24/7. You posted twice in 5 minutes and again in an hour. I came around only a little more than 2 hours after your last post and only a little after 3 hours from your first. It is the weekend, the normal crew are out. No one is in the office to help you out because they don't work the weekends. I hope you can get this resolved as Vision lab (although out dated) is a very powerful product.

EDIT: I think I just figured out why it is rendering so fast, most cameras shoot interlaced footage, if you're video is interlaced (normally interlaced even) then setting it to "progressive" will make two frames equal to 1 frame, therefore doubling the speed.

Another thing, while you're at it, why not just "select movie" instead of starting with a blank timeline. VisionLab should, by default, pick the right settings for your video.

Sorry you've been having trouble. All the options in the project settings and the various formats available can be confusing at first. The key here is making certain that the project settings you choose properly match the footage you are importing. As BibleMac mentions, using the "Select Movie" option when you create a project will auto-select the correct settings. Then you might want to make a note of those settings, for future reference.

But any time you use different project settings than what your footage uses, the playback speed will have to be modified to make the number of available frames fit into the settings you have chosen, and the result will be that the rendered file plays back at the new speed your settings create.
