Trouble making a video...Cyndi Lauper - Time After Time

This is not a great version. It's a screen cap of a high definition of one I'm trying to make.

I "borrowed" this song because it's beautiful, but not so much to make a music vid with.

I am trying to make a template with layers, frames and transitions in high definition. I'm working on an AMD AM2, 3 Ghz with 4 Gb ram, and it should be more than enough, but it isn't. Every time I attempt to join the vid together the programs crash. My settings are 640 X 480 "4X3 format" @ 30 fps. In all cases I re-size everything to those dimensions too before I import my work into the video editor. I also use the same settings for transitions in animated gif and convert those to Divx format.

Something is wrong and some advice would be appreciated [], if you have any to offer.

I'm using Paint Shop pro X3 and X4, also Pennacle Studio 14, VideoSpin, DebugMode Wax 2.0 and trying out a few others.

My ambition is to make a full length film introducing highlights of current social trends and changes in government, in order to introduce others to access to find more information on a wide range of topics that I have found to be very interesting.

I hope you enjoy this video and I hope Cyndi Lauper doesn't get offended over me using it for this stage of my studying. I will search for her name and send her a link to this if I can.
