Truth is...projects that get too large and complex
have a tendency to cause issues.
I suspect the issue is caused by the format of the
still shots and/or the transitions. I think I would begin
by removing the treansitions.
As a general rule in Movie Maker...bmp is a better
format for still images than .jpg. and if you are
adding additional music...wma or .wav...are better
choices than .mp3.

Thanks for your reply. I did try reformating the JPGs into BMP and removing all transitions, but this did not help.?
