At the gotomeeting.com website I organise webinars from time to time. I can record these as wmv-files. However these files are hard to import. Premiere Elements 7 crashed while loading it (and keeps on doing so even after a rigourous uninstall and reinstall, I have simply lost this program). I was unable to convert it with Super and only Windows Media Encoder could handle it. From 120 mb it then increased to 700 mb. I then could edit the file in Windows Moviemaker and ended up with a video during 1 hour. It basically consists of Powerpoint slides and audio. However: saving this as a movie (I intend to upload to Slideshare) takes incredibly long, regardless of what format I choose. It currently stands at 3400 minutes and is still counting. Does anyone have an explanation or a suggestion to prevent this? I do not intend to wait three days for this to finish.
The very last step is to export the final movie. Depending on your specs, compression methods, and the speed of your computer, it could take 1/2 hour for a 2-3 minute spot.
