Re: How do I import only a small part of a video? 11/21/2011 2:43:58 PM   (Total replies: 1)
It depends on where you have the original video. If it is on your computer already, then you would import the clip, trim the start and end points and save it back out as a movie. If it is on a camcorder, you can do a manual capture and only import the selected part of the movie, then use WMM for the last bit of editing, if you need to do a little more trimming.

Are you using Windows Movie Maker, or Windows Live Movie Maker? In either case, if the video is already on your computer, when you "import" it into the program, you are just adding a reference to it. It actually doesn't go anywhere. It should almost immediately appear in the program so you can trim out the part(s) you don't want.

Re: Best settings when converting from MTS to WMV (any-video converter) 1/10/2012 3:39:50 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I generally use Freemake Video Converter and it does a good job of matching the input settings to the output settings. It's essentially automatic. If you are trying another converter, pick a high bitrate setting and match the same resolution and audio settings of the input file for the WMV. Be aware that not every converter does a good job of creating a 100% compatible WMV file. Others have noted problems with .wmv files from 'Any Video Converter', so good luck.

I assume you are using Windows Live Movie Maker, since you mentioned that the preview windows is to the left. What you are seeing is the expected behavior. WLMM shows a frame from the beginning of the clip to represent the whole clip. You have to scrub through the clip, playing it or jumping around until you get to a point where you want to edit. For example if you wanted to make a split, you could do that. Once you split a clip, the new clip shows an image for the first frame of that ...

You have Windows <b>Live</b> Movie Maker (the newer, simplified program). The original version is called Windows Movie Maker. Like I said, that storyboard just shows the first frame repeated over and over, but it actually has the individual frames which you'll see as you play it. Let's say the movie really has this within it: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ In the storyboard you'll just see the first frame repeated. The first will be bold and the rest will be slightly gray and ...

You can install the classic Windows Movie Maker. There's a link to WMM 6.0 in my signature.

Re: problems importing and capturing files 11/3/2012 10:12:06 PM   (Total replies: 1)
What software did you use to create the .wmv files? Are you sure they are encoded with the WMV9 codec? My theory is that they aren't .wmv files but are in another format that isn't 100% compatible with Movie Maker. As a test, try one of the Sample Videos (.wmv format) and see if that imports into Movie Maker. Do a similar test with a photo from the external hard drive. If those tests work, then try converting one clip to .wmv using Freemake Video Converter. One additional note, Movie ...

When you capture from your video camera, it is encoding the video and storing a copy of the video on your hard disk. When you choose to add a video from your external hard drive, it isn't doing this re-encoding or copying. It is just using the video directly. What you could do is take a copy from the external drive and copy it to your internal hard drive manually so that it would be there even when the external drive is removed.
