I am having the same problem. I am unable to save... Photo Story 3 says that
I may be out of memory or that the program is corrupted. I believe that
neither is the case. I monitor the performace of the machine while
attempting to convert to video and the memory is not even nearly maxed out.
I have re-installed the program in a different drive and on one other
computer with a comprable setup. Still the same error.

help if you please.

finished version of the photo story but then cannot go back and edit it. Any
help would be appreciated.

=================================
You need two different files...one for playing and
one for editing. On several screens, including the
last screen there's a button that says "Save Project"
....this should allow you to save the project files for
future editing.

The playable movie file is:
xxxx.wmv

The file for re-editing is:
xxxx.wp3
