1.Convert mvi?
Posted by Curt on 5/13/2011 4:17:31 PM
What shareware converts mvi to wmv?
2.Re: Convert mvi?
Posted by Curt on 5/13/2011 10:24:00 PM
The 848,299 KB MVI and 77 tiff images were on a DVD I received in the mail. I do not know the source of the MVI file. I tried every program I could think of but could not convert the MVI.

Neo,

Thank you Super did i!

Just to make a long story, I tried Super earlier, before I had changed the file extension, Super got part-way through the process and said that it could not convert the file and suggested that I install the most current version of Super. When I tried to do that, the new version said it needed to remove my existing version. I agreed but after it removed my working version it found that it could not install the new version because it ...

Neo,

Thanks for that suggestion. Super worked so well that converting was not a problem and I am avoiding Windows Live Movie Maker.

I have Windows Live Movie Maker, and versions 2.6 and 6.0. I have not tried using Windows Live Movie Maker. All that I read about it seemed to suggest that most people have been disappointed with it. Since I seem to be doing everything with 6.0 now.

I have been wondering whether I should uninstall Windows Live ...

Neo,

There is a "Movie Maker" listed in both "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)." Which is most likely version 6.0?
6.Re: Convert mvi?
Posted by Curt on 5/16/2011 11:02:31 PM
I copied all of the contents of the (x86) Shared folder to the Shared folder in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker, but I still do not see all of the transitions in version 6.0. For example, I do not see "Barn Doors Open" and "Barn Doors Closed." Is it possible that those transitions do not work with 6.0?

Blaine,

PatrickL's "Doors" transtion is good, but I was looking for "Barn Doors" that I believe was made by you. Will that work in Movie Maker 6.0?

My computer is back at the factory and I am a little slow in responding right. In addition, I was not notified when there was a followup on this thread and another one, but I will get back to see your response.

Blaine,

The "Allow email tracking" box has been checked for several years and the "check box in the upper left of both of those threads was checked, but I still did not receive emails when those threads were updated. But I received an email when you just repled to this thread. I m on a different computer now. My regular computer is back at HP for repairs. Perhaps the lack of emails had something to do with whatever was wrong with the computer that is now back ...

Thank you for explaining Blaine. I have registered ShaderTFX on the other computer. So I will download your Doors when that computer gets back from HP.

Blaine,

Thank you. I will copy all of the contents of the (x86) Shared folder to the Shared folder in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker. Hopefully I will then have everything back in my 6.0 version.
If that works, I will then wonder where I will the Shared folder for the Movie Maker Live version?
11.Downloading Video from the Web Get Video No Audio
Posted by Curt on 9/20/2013 6:42:56 PM
Hi,

I downloaded a video using Camtasia Studio 3.1 as .avi, got beautiful video but no audio. I found the same clip on YouTube and tried to download it using Freemake Downloader. Freemake just stopped during downloading. Any suggestion?

Blaine,

Here is the original link that I was sent. This is the one I tried to capture with Camtasia Studio and got video only.

When that failed I went to YouTube and searched "Bridgette Gabriel Anti-Sharai Conference" and could ...

Blaine,

Thank you very much. I was starting to think that it was just one of those clips that could not be downloaded properly. I am glad that I asked and that you took the time to investigate.

I'll upgrade my Freemake.

Blaine,

Instead of upgrading Freemake Downloader, I downloaded Freemake Converter. It did a beautiful job. Thanks again, Curt
15.Re: free sound software?
Posted by Curt on 8/8/2008 5:43:41 PM
Hi Ghost,

The idea of using a computer voice sounds good. I did a search for Microsoft Sam, Microsoft Mike, Voice and Speech and found nothing. I have Windows XP. Is there something that I could download?


Oops! I found it under Speech in Control Panel. (I only have Microsoft Sam.) Did I gather correctly that its purpose is to convert speech to text? How about the reverse, could I use it and type text that it would covert to speech that I could record?
16.Re: free sound software?
Posted by Curt on 8/9/2008 4:37:04 PM
Hi Dickmr,

Thanks for your usual detailed instructions. I got up to having Sam speak the line that I typed. Then he turned into a blabbermouth. I could not shut him up. (Actually, I was glad that he was talking, but I could not distinguish what he was saying in addition to my typed sentence.) However, I was NOT able to record him.

I used "Search" and found "Easy MP3 Sound Recorder" and "Sound Recorder." I tried using Sound ...

Hi Ghost,

I did download Balabolka. It seems good! It allowed me to download Microsoft Mary and Mike voices which I did not have. I also downloaded a group of American English voices. The Microsoft Voices (Mary, Mike and Sam) worked fine. However, I could not get any of the American English Voices to read text. I did download and install stchapi.exe. Any suggestions?

Thank you for suggesting Balabolka.

I have the Microsoft voices and the American English voices working in Balabolka. What is the best way to save them for use in Movie Maker. It seems strange to click on "Save as" either before or after they speak.

Posted by Curt on 8/10/2008 10:02:20 PM
Hi Ghost,

Thank you. It all works great in Movie Maker. I appreciate your help. I hope that you find a practical solution to your problem that does not require a new computer (unless you want one).

Dickmr,

Thanks for getting me started on this. I am not sure how I will use it but I am really pleased to have it and am thinking of possibilities for using it.

I was sorry that you drifted away from this thread. Could it be that you ...

Hi Dickmr,

The Spinning Red Frame is a first class teaser. It is a great clip and I certainly want to use it. I can download it but that is where the teasing starts to get serious. When I click on "Download Windows media Version" in Vimeo, it automatically begins downloading. It did not give a choice as to naming the clip or where to locate it. After it was downloaded Real One Player opened automatically and player. When I right-clicked on "Properties" I ...

Posted by Curt on 8/11/2008 9:57:30 PM
Hi Dickmr,

Right-clicking did the trick! I tried it in Movie Maker and it is even more impressive than I thought with a photo in it. I can't wait to use it and flabbergast my family. Thank you very much. An extra thanks for you being as patient and halpful as you always are.

I have in my notes "RIGHT-CLICK in Vimeo." Now, I need a note saying, "Check your notes!"

I browsed down to your "Panning the Hills" clip in ...
22.Make VideShow Continuously on Sony Elctronice Picture Frame?
Posted by Curt on 10/23/2013 10:11:43 PM
I have a short video that I want to play continuously on a Sony SD-Frame, DPF-HD1000 Electronic Photo Frame. The video was in wmv format but the Frame did not recognize it. I converted it to MP4 and it plays well. However, it plays only once and then stops. How can I get it to play continuously?

Posted by Curt on 10/24/2013 9:15:05 AM
Blaine,

Thanks for replying. The clip will play fine in the Slideshow mode, but it still onlly plays one time and then stops.

Thanks for trying to help. I appreciate it.

24.Where to download PS 3 for Windows 7 64-bit
Posted by Curt on 5/22/2012 10:56:46 PM
I just had to do another System Recovery and am having trouble finding where to download PS3 for Windows 7 64-bit.

Posted by Curt on 5/23/2012 2:25:48 AM
Very Good! Thank you.

It turned out that I had somehow acquired an installer that insisted that it was going to add some extra things while it installed PS3. Once I got rid f that installer everything was O.K.
