    For some reason all of the movies I have been working on now have "3ivx Trial" slapped all over them! How to I rid this nasty crap from my videos! I don't ever remember using a 3ivx.

    OK. Which video editor are you using? What is the origin of your videos? Which video format are they in?

    As you can see here (http://www.3ivx.com/download/macos.html), the 3ivx software is a Trial, which expires after 30 days.

    You must have installed it onto your Mac to edit MP4 in iMovie as it seems.

    Generally it is not considered wise to edit with such a highly compressed and lossy format like MPEG-4, it's best to convert the footage into AIC (Apple Intermediate Codec) during import into iMovie or a third party solution.

    What kind/model of camera do you have and what is the file suffix of the video files on your camera?

    maybe you can install perian, and uninstall 3ivx. Perian is free.
