Thank you for your info...I downloaded "Super" but I got no instructions on how to use it...I ahve a new Sony video camera with "Bloggoe" soft ware...it seems that the Bloggie software produces an MP4 vodeo...I can play the videos directly from the down loaded bloggie files but I can't do any editing...I have never done any video editing before...I haven't been able to figure out how to get the Bloggie MP4 files into Super and even if I could get them there I don't know what to do with them...I think that I want so convert them to .wmv so Windows Movie Maker can access them for editing...

can you give me a "simple" set of instructions to convert my Bloggie MP4 video files to .vmp files...or can you tell me where to get instructions on how to use Super...

Thank for your help...Jim

It took me a lot of trial n error to figure out Super.
I'm in a hurry .. got to leave soon
But select you video(s) and Drag n Drop them as shown below ..
I think the previous attachment shows how I had it set up to convert to use in my XP Movie maker

I'm not sure about the MP4 ...
My Sony outputs Mpeg2 .. and XP's Movie Maker wont take Mpeg2 .. So I converted to Mpeg1.
that seemed to look better than wmv.
I usually created a new folder to put the conversions in.
Right click anywhere .. and set the output management to point to this (or other) folder.

About a couple of months ago, M$ finally updated W7's Movie Maker 2011 .. so it works now ..
and I've been using it since .. So, I'm a little rusty with super.
It's a pain having to wait on the conversions.
