1.Re: Blaines effects not working
Posted by Neophyte on 9/18/2017 8:54:12 AM
Welcome to the forums.

Which of Blaine's effects did you download and which version of Movie Maker are you using?
2.Re: Must I Demux an Avi file?
Posted by Neophyte on 7/18/2016 11:02:53 PM
No need to demux. Just mute the original sound track by selecting it and then going to Clip > Audio and clicking on Mute.

I suspect the problem with the narration is a "shortcoming" with your PC. One workaround is to first save your movie without the narration and then import that movie into a new project and then add your narration. Another workaround is to break your project up into smaller pieces and save a movie in each of the pieces. You would then import ...

You're welcome. Just post back if you run into any problems.
4.Re: Still using XP Windows Movie Maker--mostly successfully but need help
Posted by Neophyte on 8/4/2017 9:54:31 AM
Welcome back.

1. Most likely the problem is that the file types from the new equipment are not supported by the XP version of Movie Maker. Try converting the files to wmv files and see if that resolves the problem.

2, Click here here for a tutorial on using Windows Live Movie Maker. You can also find a number of video tutorials on Youtube.

If you ...

Windows Live Movie Maker was the latest version of Movie Maker and was included as part of the Windows Essential package. Microsoft stopped supporting it the beginning of this year. If it isn't already installed on your laptop, see this page for where you can download a copy.

Once you've ...

I just checked the link for the English (United States) version of Windows Live Movie Maker from my previous post and the setup file downloaded without a problem. You might want to give it another try.

The anti-virus program may scan the file when downloaded. If it doesn't, once you've downloaded the file, you can usually right click on the file and there will be an option on the pop-up menu to scan the file.
8.Re: REHAN does not care!
Posted by Neophyte on 10/30/2010 10:21:28 PM
user2 - Rehan has a long and outstanding record of contribution to the Movie Maker community and many satisfied users of his plug-ins. Thus, your post is completely opposite of what I've found to be the case and I find your assertions largely unsupported. Furthermore, "flaming" of other members is not permitted in these forums. For now, I'll assume your post is strictly a reflection of your frustration.

Have you tried contacting Rehan directly with your problem? ...

user2 - looks like you owe Rehan an apology.
10.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/7/2016 2:49:48 PM
Welcome to the forums.

I don't think mpeg streamclip supports wmv files. You can try converting your wmv file to a supported file format or post back with what you're trying to do with the clip in mpeg streanclip and we might be able to suggest a another way to do it that wouldn't require you to convert the file.
11.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/8/2016 9:45:08 AM
FYI, AVI is what is known as a container format and the video within that file could be encoded with any one of a number of different codecs.

If you have Windows Live Movie Maker 2012 (this is the latest version), you can use it to convert it to an mpeg4 with the specific video parameters you want by using a custom profile.
12.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/8/2016 1:57:07 PM
That's the version and it should work on your system.
13.Re: mpeg streamclip import problem
Posted by Neophyte on 10/8/2016 4:55:49 PM
Try the following:

1. Import the clip into Movie Maker
2. Click on File > Save movie > Create custom setting
3. Enter the video parameters you want, select the audio format you want. enter the name for this custom setting and then click on Save and Save again and then Close
4. Click on File > Save movie and then click on the name of the custom setting you just created (it should be listed under Recent settings)
5. Enter the name you want ...
14.Re: Adding a Title to a Movie
Posted by Neophyte on 9/7/2017 9:21:28 AM
To change the title once you've published your movie, you would need to open your project file, make the desired changes to your title and then publish a new movie with the revised title.

See PapaJohn's Newsletter #22 on Rad Video Tools - this newsletter includes a tutorial on converting .mov files to .avi files. It's a free download.

17.Re: How to position a photo?
Posted by Neophyte on 8/24/2017 3:10:41 PM
One way is to create a new image with the photo placed where you want it on the new image. Once you have that image, add it to your movie maker project and then add your title (text) to that image.
18.Re: How to position a photo?
Posted by Neophyte on 8/26/2017 11:40:23 PM
If you have Rehan's ShaderTFX plug-in, you should be able to use it to do what you want.
19.Re: XP Movie Maker on newer operating systems
Posted by Neophyte on 8/21/2017 8:43:30 AM
Version 2.6 (the XP version) is the oldest version I would consider running on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. FYI, I have it on a Windows 10 system.
20.Re: displaying text vertically??
Posted by Neophyte on 8/23/2017 5:48:03 PM
Dick - have you tried modifying the xml from ayumi's titles to get the exact position you want? If you're uncomfortable modifying the xml code, post back with which of ayumi's titles came the closest to what you want and a description of the changes needed in the position for that title and we'll see if we can modify the xml code for you. Worse case you could always use an image overlay to put the text exactly where you want it.
21.Re: displaying text vertically??
Posted by Neophyte on 8/17/2017 9:41:13 AM
If you haven't already done so, try hitting the "Enter" key after each letter to get multiple lines. You may have to reduce the font size to get all of your letters to appear.
22.Re: Movie Not Saving Properly
Posted by Neophyte on 8/18/2017 9:31:41 AM
Welcome to the forums.

If you haven't done so, add the video to the timeline first, then split the video, delete the unwanted portions and then save it. If that doesn't resolve the problem, post back with which version of Movie Maker you are using.
23.Re: Movie Not Saving Properly
Posted by Neophyte on 8/18/2017 1:15:11 PM
You're using the latest version of Movie Maker. Given your problem, I thought you were using an earlier version and my suggestion was based on the assumption you were using an earlier version.

What's the file format of your original video and what settings did you select for saving your movie?
24.Re: Movie Not Saving Properly
Posted by Neophyte on 8/21/2017 8:49:29 AM
Given you were able to trim the video in Movie Maker, I'm a little surprised you couldn't also split and delete portions. If you wouldn't mind sharing the original file with me, upload it to a site where I can download it and I will check it out on my system.

A workaround would be to use the trim function in multiple passes to create individual clips of the portions you want to save. Once you have all the individual clips, you would need to add them together to create your ...
25.Re: Aspect ratio
Posted by Neophyte on 1/21/2017 4:39:14 PM
Welcome to the forums.

If you haven't done so, go to the Project tab in Movie Maker and set the aspect ratio to 16:9.
