I viewed your sample on youtube…
Stop motion, if you intended to do that you would be proud of the result
No, I did not want stop motion.
In the youtube clip (X3)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpFA8KZsJaY&list=HL1332610699&feature=mh_lolz
I wanted to
1. Put in an image with text
2. insert the 30 second .avi file
3. put a watermark (text) down the lower left hand corner.
4. Save/Share as eg. .wmv
I had been a very, very happy X2 user until late February 2012, when X2 kept crashing whenever I tried to output/share a video. Fortunately I did happily prepare an important presentation by the 2nd Feb. of .mpg clips before I had these problems.
I do not know what I could have updated on my PC since early Feb 2012.
I deleted X2 as per Corel web site, and reinstalled X2 - but even though I had my activation code, but it would not successfully activate it!
I had previously purchased X3, but never installed it, I upgraded it to X3, with successfully being able to activate it.
As X3 did not work [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpFA8KZsJaY&list=HL1332610699&feature=mh_lolz[/youtube], I purchased X5.
In X5, all I attempted (after activation) was:
1. Open the file (insert the video into the timeline)
2. Clip the first 10 seconds (so I could upload a sample of my input .avi file)
3. Share/Output as (any) video
I then tried to
1. Open the file
2. Share/Output as (any) video
These 2 attempts at X5 resulted in a similar output to the X3 youtube video - it is as if X3 and X5 are somehow taking 1 frame a second an creating a slow-motion or jerky video (no matter which format video I choose). Note in both of these attempts, the option "same as first video clip" is greyed out so I cannot attempt this option.
This is what VS thinks is the input file.avi filehttps://plus.google.com/photos/103082608590026054951/albums/5723516944679958529
It is a little weird as x5 is saying it is 15 frames per sec.

1 / Codec Packs can cause additional problems to the ones they are supposed to cure, so I certainly don’t advise using them.
By the way not saying that this is the problem, just a comment.
Thanks I was looking through old forum posts and Corel web site trying to find what I could do.

Give more info on how you created the new video file?
Video Studio will give the video properties we require, simply right click a clip and select properties.

I have never knowingly used any project template before.
Looking at Settings | Project Properties (I assume this is the default)
Project template properties MPEG file
Under General it has 25 frames per second
Should I be using 15 frames per second? It will not let me change any frame rate.
For the Microsoft AVI file project template, it will allow me to change the frame rate to 15.
I changed the Frame size to the largest option of 1440 x 1080
I made a 10 second clip - using the modified .avi project settings, same result as previously!! but 10 second avi file is 641 Mb.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as to how I could edit any of these 15 fps videos
(created using Ltl Acorn 6210 HD Trail camera (motion detector) http://www.trailcameras.com.au/ltl-6210mc.htm
All I was was trying to do make a clip of a sample video to show people the output from the camera!
