Re: anyone knows how to change the language on the windows movie maker? 3/18/2006 7:01:31 AM   (Total replies: 1)
As far as I've been able to find, there are many language packs available to change MM on English XP to another language, but not vice versa. l have been wanting to do this ever since SP2 came out (convert MM on Japanese XP to English), but no luck yet. This is surely something I'm looking out for, and one I hope they'll do.

I've mentioned this to Microsoft three times, and hope they will (someday) realize that there are oddballs like us who might want English software on non-English OSes. For PC-based video, I just use the Japanese Movie Maker. For DVD, I use (English) Ulead Video Studio and DVD Movie Factory. They work fine for me with excellent, predictable results. Video Studio also supports and creates WMV, but with less control over output options than MM. Best wishes from hot and humid Japan.

Get a utility that will convert animated GIFs to AVI, then you can import and work with it easily.

Re: Rotate frames within Moviemaker? 4/25/2005 7:33:59 AM   (Total replies: 1)
If you peek at Movie Maker's Video Effects you will find "Rotate 90 Degrees," as well as rotation effects for 180 and 270 degrees. After capturing, cut these "rotated" segments, add the relevant rotation effect, and your problem should (I said "should") be solved. Hope that works for you. Give it a try. For DVD you will need DVD authoring software. MM doesn't do DVD. Good luck.

Where is the Bottleneck? 12/8/2004 8:56:49 PM   (Total replies: 0)
I'm helping a certain relative who wants to do video on his budget PC. It has 256 RAM and 1.2 Ghz, so (I thought) it would suffice. After convincing him that he needed a firewire port he installed a card with 3 connectors. He also got an external drive for big video projects. We have found that only one port can be used at a time. He can capture bad video through his USB 1 port to his external drive using firewire, or he can capture via firewire to his internal drive -- he cannot do both ...

Re: Can't import DVD-RW files 4/25/2005 5:31:47 AM   (Total replies: 0)
I use to use Vobrator, but don't know if it's still available. It's been a long time since I've done that. A "VOB to AVI" search on the 'net will show you what's available.

DVD files (VOB & etc.) are made for burning to a disc and not importing. However, tools like DVD Shrink (freeware) will let you "look" at the contents of your DVD files and copy them to your hard drive. However, you will still need other tools to convert them into something manageable for editing.

Good question.... but the answer is that they probably want people to buy Media Center PCs.

Keep Movie Maker Separate & .... 9/25/2004 11:16:50 AM   (Total replies: 1)
I'd like Microsoft to view Movie Maker as a more serious tool. I'd like to see MM and any of its future updates kept totally separate from other updates, security packs, and etc. when installing. I'd like MM (and ALL MS software) to be installable in ANY language irrelevant of the OS language. The user should be able to choose ANY available language of a component, including English on a foreign-language OS, without grief, hassle, or hunting all through the Microsoft Downloads pages in ...

I have heard of this same issue from several different people. My own way is to run the VCR to a digital converter (video and stereo audio), then from there into the PC via firewire. The converter is a bit expensive, but the video handling and quality are great. If you're going to do lots of importing from the VCR, I strongly recommend it. There are surely other ways, but it's the best way I know.
