Filmore is way better than others I'v used in the past, especially Windows videomaker. But, I'm stuck on two problems: a. I want to slow down the speed when rolling the credits, it rolls extremely fast. b. How to remove all sound from the original video and record only music. I know how to put music on a video but can't understand how to raise and drop to eliminate background voices.Tried for hours with no luck, or is it lunch? Yea, I could use lunch now! Help!
