Transition problems

Hi!
There's this movie which I have worked like 40 hours with and I need to have
it on DVD. So, I first make it into a regular wma file and then I convert it
to avi using a shareware software called "Fx Video Converter" (because none
of my dvd making programs will accept wma as a format). But when I've done
this one of my transitions is ruined. It's a place where I first have a
completely black picture and then I put in one with a flashing text together
with music. It works when it's a wma file, but when I change it the text that
is suppose to be flashing starts to show, slowly fading, several seconds
before the moment where it is suppose to appear and thus ruines the effect of
surprise.

Whats wrong?

B. regards
Fredrik Trella

Have you tried saving it as a dv-avi straight from MM?
See here for how to do it if you're stuck

I'm also assuming you mean WMV when you refer to WMA files.
