Negative colors
Posted: 16 Sep 2006 10:16 AM
Hi, excuse my english.

We are doing RIGHT NOW a class on how to use Movie maker (the basics). We have 21 pcs on the laboratory, and none projects the movie good. It opens on WMedia Player but the colors are like negative colors (pink, blue and lime green), it looks awful, we cant even see what the objects are. If you go open the movie right from WMM, the only way to do it is Import file... It doenst even show up in Open.

Why is that? A student has a laptop on the classroom and in her computer the movie looks GREAT. I compared the versions and both are the same: WMP v. 9 and WMM version 5.1.

What can the 21 other computer have wrong? The lab is only 2 months old, so the pcs are practically new.

Please help us.

From the Microsoft WMP knowledge-base:
My video looks bad. It has random flashes of pink or green, or has spots.

Is this what you are experiencing? Try reloading your video driver, lowering your video acceleration or reloading Windows Media Player.

Movie Maker (Custom Titles, Effects. etc.)Cool
WMM 6.0 on Windows 7 or 8

This happened to me too after I edited a file with Movie Maker - colors all negative on playback. I had been using Windows Media Player 9, upgraded to 10, and the problem was resolved. Wouldn't have known to do that without this thread - thank you everyone for the help!
