I wonder if any of you can help me before I pull out what little hair I happen to have left.

My partner very kindly bought Roxio Videowave 7 for me as I'd compared several different editing packages and this seemed to suit my purposes most.

However, having recently purchased a very high spec computer on which to edit videos, I find myself struggling to understand the so called help.

I have by chance managed to get it to automatically split the video into scenes, but trying to trim them is a nightmare.

Also, when I return to the programme the next day, the split scenes are no longer there and I have to start again.

Please can someone help - I'm not a brain of Britain, so an 'idiots guide' would suffice.

How do I trim the video?

How do I save it so that the sections will be there the following day?

Thanks in advance.
