I am trying to use ImageMixer 3 for the PC. I have uploaded my video from the canon FS100, but I want to be able to edit the movie so that there are still images (both off my camera and downloaded from the internet) over the dialougue of the movie. The software is treating my movie as a 'clip' and I can only insert images before or after the clip...even then they just appear as a blank screen and not the image.

Re: images over video clips
The format for the image MIGHT not be compatible. Or, it could be too large for the app to downsample it. Try a JPG and make sure the size and resolution accommodate video.
Unfortunately with gimped software such as this, you are going to be limited in the effects you can do. Most of them are just preprogrammed scripts. If you really want to do something like this and have it look professional... you will need to fork over some serious cash, and get Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premier. It's NOT that you are doing anything wrong, the software just can't do it.

Where did you save your video clips? the clips you trying to used for editing. I suggest to you to import the video clips again and then after that open your project again. Check if still there is a blue exclamation points.
That's fine, it does that because if it played the clips back (in edit) the computer wouldn't be able to handle it, ESPECIALLY, if like me, you edit HD video! It's doing you a favour, when you render it it should look fine :)
It could be both. Video editing programs are resource hogs and tend to drain all of your resources. Not knowing what computer you have or the amount of RAM or OS you have, it's hard to tell. You can try shutting down other processes running in the background that you don't need before trying to edit the video.
Something else to consider is video software also needs considerable space to place temporary files when editing or ripping into a movie. You should ensure the hard drive that the temp folder is in had plenty of free space.
As far as the video file being corrupt, are you editing one file or are you putting together multiple files? If it's multiple files, it's very possible the file you're working on when it crashes is corrupt.
Hope this helps answer your questions.
Best of luck.
1. Download Video Download Studio, install it.
2. Go to the interface, you can download (Automatic capture) the YouTube video there directly. Tab Download to Convert, you can also click "Add" button to upload the videos from computer. You can also edit video by trim and crop functions.
3. After the video display on the Video Download Studio, click "Profile" and choose "General video", then select an MP4 format. Set destination file, clicking Convert button to complete the task.
Not only convert video to MP4, but also support batch conversion. Safe and easy to operate. No Viruses, No Spyware, No Adware. Do not hesitate. Have a try!
To play the audio you need to download the AC3 filter pack here: http://www.free-codecs.com/AC3_Filter_download.htm. I have no idea why Canon didn't bundle this codac with all of the software they provide, but it worked for me. I use a Canon FS100, and had no sound in WMP (or any other Windows apps except VLC Media Player) until installing this.
Good for you to keep learning! We are all on the learning curve somewhere all the time. My suggestion would be to go back to the manual. If you don't have one, google it and see what you can find out there. Your local library may have some basic classes for little to no cost. Video editing is similar in all programs- it involves cutting video into clips, putting them on a timeline and editing soundtracks. Upload a small segment of video and just play around with the settings, etc. and see what happens. Hope this helps!
