can't get the words to extend the length of the audio

Hi Again,
I'm unable to get the words to extend the length of the audio.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Craig

In Papagayo, with your .wav file loaded, change the FPS to some other number (doesn't matter what) and then back to your desired FPS. You will then be able to drag the words to the end.

Note that PG has a limit on how long an audio file/frames you can do. I think it's around 4000 frames. Longer than that must be split (easy to recombine in a spreadsheet if need be).

The audio file is only 8 seconds long.

Bottom line is PG doesn't work well for me on the Mac. I'm so glad I also have access to a PC (Vista).

From a Mac perspective: Papagayo is a weak link in an otherwise terrific AS workflow.
It appears to have as many workarounds as it has functions working properly.
