Better version of Movie Maker for saving your movie to computer?
Posted: 06 Nov 2012 11:34 AM
I am constantly getting the message about not being able to save my movies. Then I have to do the old cut up your movie, save parts individually, then bring them back in and join the parts and save them again routine, losing A LOT of quality in the process. Is there any hope on the horizon that a new version of WMM will come out so you don't have to deal with this?

Depends on your version of Windows. If you are on Windows XP, the best you can do is WMM 2.1. If you are on Windows Vista, the latest is Movie Maker 2011. But if you are on Windows 7 or higher then you have Movie Maker 2012. For the latest downloads of Movie Maker go to download.live.com and pick it from the Windows Essentials installer.

Incidentally one thing that can really help in editing video in Movie Maker is to convert all your source files to a common format. Movie Maker prefers .wmv for video and .wma for audio. A batch conversion of all your source files up front, using Freemake Video Converter and Freemake Audio Converter (freemake.com) can make for a much smoother editing experience. Give that a try if upgrading to Movie Maker 2012 is not an option.

Thanks. I have XP. I always use wmv and wma. Freemake Converter is a god-send---so darn easy to use, their interface is fantastically clear and easy. These guys get it.
