I have 2 web promos that my video producer created and I own all rights to.

I'm trying to merge the two videos into one.  I own Swish Max, Pinnacle Studio 9 and have a trial version of Flash CS3 Professional.

I don't think the first two programs will help, and I don't know much about Flash....do I have what I need to get the job done?  Will I have to convert the FLV?  If so, what should I use and what should I convert it to?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

In what formats do you have the promos?

Here is a workaround:

You can convert individual flv files to avi using Super [http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html], then join the multiple Avi files into a single avi file using free VirtualDub and finally convert this avi back to FLV using Riva FLV encoder (http://www.rivavx.com/?encoder).

Here is a write-up of a similar and free workaround:

Best wishes,

The promos are both FLV

I'll try that --- I'm surprised I can't accomplish is in Flash Pro...but if the workaround works I am all for it

I think I'm doing something wrong.

I got the conversion to AVI using Super

When I open with Virtual Dub I can cut out the portion I don't want --- when I try to save the segment is when I run into problems.  I've done save and save segment.  Each turn the 6MB AVI into 300+ MB and the playback is choppy audio after the first couple seconds.  Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks!  I used all 3 programs --- Super and Riva worked great!!!  I had to change the video compression to get Virtual Dub to work and I lost a little quality in the final product --- I will probably play with it some more...but for now I got the results I need....thanks!
