1.Re: Even simple short wmv files fail to import
Posted by skier-hughes on 11/5/2005 1:09:59 PM
When you use system restore it will not lose any saved documents, but it will un-install any apps etc which you may have installed. Anything you have installed may be conflicting.
You can if you wish then undo the last restore point and be back to where you started if it doesn't help at all.
2.Re: I need some recommendations please.

Depends on what's causing the issue.
If you have a low spec pc and are using high definition files I doubt any editing programme will work very well, as it's the system resources that are letting you down.
You can download and try for free over 30 days programmes like corel video studio, pinnacle studio, adobe premiere elements.
Have a read of them, look at some youtube tutorials and then try the one you prefer.
I wouldn't install too many editing apps on one pc ...
3.Re: Get "class not registered" error when trying to capture video
Posted by skier-hughes on 10/29/2008 6:33:06 AM
When you plug your cam in do you get the windows ping and found new hardware, does the cam then show up in imaging devices?

OK, can you try it on a friends pc and see what happens.
Also, have you made any changes to your pc since it last worked? What were they?

I'd certainly try a different converter first. Adding and/or messing with codecs can cause more problems than they cure.

You can petition all you like but Apple, who "own" MOV, will not let Miscrosoft use it.
(simply put)

I've never tried Pazera, what did you convert it to? PJ's site says it converts to avi, but there are over 800 different avi file types and only one, dv.avi will work with MM. Did you choose this option?

I've had great succes with super, and I've also tried Bink and Boilsoft with success, all of which are listed on my page here

Sounds more like a problem with your pc specs, not able to keep up in real time with the editing. Try stopping as many services as you can, those you don't need to be running, Don't have any otehr programmes open, and try again.

It would be nice, but with over 800 different file types that can be put in an avi wrapper, it'll never happen!!!!!!!

Soaen
WHat are your project file types?
10.Re: Loss of sound quality when dragging video to timeline
Posted by skier-hughes on 2/2/2011 1:34:07 PM
playing in collections doesn't mean they'll work on the timeline.
.flv files won't work, convert these to a wmv file.
There are over 800 different avi files, only one, dv.avi works properly. I'm guessing yours are one of the compressed formats such as divx, xvid etc, so will also need converting.
Use something like "Super" to do the job.

After you save them to a wmv file in movie maker to watch elsewhere, do they then play at normal speed on your computer via windows media player?
12.Re: Thick Green Line After Movie is Published
Posted by skier-hughes on 2/9/2009 5:44:42 AM
disable them one by one, starting with the divx one.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to convert.
13.Re: Thick Green Line After Movie is Published
Posted by skier-hughes on 3/30/2007 6:00:31 AM
Where did the original file come from, you say a rip to your hard drive, so it may be a copyright movie and the green strip is the copy protection showing through?
14.Re: Thick Green Line After Movie is Published
Posted by skier-hughes on 5/21/2009 3:55:52 AM
Can you give us all the details of your project files, which version of movie maker you are using and any other help that you feel might be useful.
15.Re: Thick Green Line After Movie is Published
Posted by skier-hughes on 5/22/2009 6:00:09 AM
That records in vga 30fps, it may pay you to use something like super video converter to convert the file to a wmv of the dimensions you need for your area, 720x576 PAL, first.

16.Re: Video transition help?
Posted by skier-hughes on 4/21/2011 6:20:52 PM
Best bet is to email Rehan and let him know what trouble you are having, to see if he can help.
17.Re: Video transition help?
Posted by skier-hughes on 4/22/2011 6:37:00 AM
What did Rehan say when you emailed him?
18.Re: Audio problems
Posted by skier-hughes on 4/21/2011 6:23:41 PM
How did you make the dvd? Most video/dvd combined players can make odd types of mpeg2 file. YOu might be better taking the file from your dvd and copying it to your pc, converting to wmv or dv.avi using a programme like super or mpeg streamclip and then using that file to edit.

19.Re: Clip import --> How to fill the whole screen? Please help...
Posted by skier-hughes on 4/21/2011 12:28:35 PM
What are the properties of the file you are importing?
Unless it is a 4.3 in a 4.3 project, or 16.9 in a 16.9 project you will get black borders, and as has been said you can use the zoom tool to get around it.
For the fture, if you can change the settings of the file you are using before making it, so when recording or converting, check that the properties are 4.3, so make a 640x480 movie etc.

This is a known issue and tests are being carried out on a fix at this time.

in itunes you can download the song as a wav, but otherwise you need to convert it to a wav.

Which version of movie maker are you using?
What are the other file types in your movie?
Can you save it direct to your hard drive?
22.Re: Still necessary to use WMV clips only?
Posted by skier-hughes on 1/2/2011 11:28:37 AM
If you are still using the same windows and MM versions then yes, you need to do this as the type of avi your camera produces is not copmatible with your computer programmes.
If you now have windos 7 and windows live movie maker you might be able to edit directly, as these new versions are far more compatible, but with over 800 different .avi file types you can't gurantee success until you try.
23.Re: missing videos when imported from flip-cam
Posted by skier-hughes on 1/2/2011 11:57:49 AM
If you COPY your videos then you can't lose them.
24.Re: Length of movie

written for xp, but should be similar for Win 7, which I think you may be using from your other post header

25.Re: WMM not importing the full video
Posted by skier-hughes on 12/11/2010 9:06:17 AM
Are you sure you have converted the file to dv.avi?

60 mins dv.avi is about 13gb
11mins would be about 2gb
