I am creating an online gaming movie for school with power director 7 and i am putting a whole bunch of different clips together that I have saved on my computer but between the transitions of each clip there is a whole lot of lag and the video completely freezes for about 2 seconds and once it starts back up the next clip starts in the wrong place because it is cut short for a few seconds. Is there a way to make these transitions smoother and less laggy?? PLEASE HELP....I need an A on this!

What format are the clips? (Codecs used?) I would suspect that you didn't cut them properly on a keyframe and that may be your problem. Some highly compressed formats like Divx/Xvid only have keyframes about every 300 frames by default. And if you cut them on any other than a keyframe, you may have the problems you state.
Some editors can re-encode at just the cut point, but others may have to re-encode the whole clip to properly replace the lost frames. DV and most low loss codecs have keyframes on every frame and don't have the problem.
Or it may be a problem with your transitions if the problem only shows when the transitions were added. Not that familiar with Power Director. But others may have some better ideas.
