I am trying to edit some video clips and I have Ulead and Video Edit Magic. All I am trying to do is cut out a few seconds at the beginning of the clip so I can get a good pic to show when its thumbnail is displayed. First of all they way I am editing it when I finish and "make" the movie it takes hours to make the new copy. Hours just to cut a tiny bit off? Am I doing something wrong? Also in comparison to the original clip it shows the same size but the "bps" ( bits per second I assume ) is a lower value. Does this mean I have lost video quality?
