There are several different video formats that you can create, edit, and view. On of the current struggles at a few of our desks here is getting the right file made.

Getting all three programs to work with various video files is like trying to get Shorty, Tex, and Dave all around the same campfire and agree to have a good time at the cook-out despite the awful food and poor singing.
Yep, it's a technical sort of day today. But in the end, we learn how the files work best in order to get the best possible output.
