Here's a tool I've used to TRANSCODE it or repair it. I offer NO SUPPORT since it's free and the VIRTUAL DUB webpage tells how to use it.

I am having a problem dragging an AVI video clip onto the timeline. It only shows 3 seconds of the 31/2 minute clip.
1. I am creating a DVD
2. All other AVI clips drag smoothly to the timeline.
3. The clip plays from start to finish in the preview menu with no problems.
4. When I put this clip into a new project all by itself, it still only gives me 3 seconds.
Is the file corrupt? Am I missing a step somewhere?
