Windows Vista Movie Maker

I am creating a movie in Windows Movie Maker. I am about half done and decided to transfer the project to my other computer because it has more memory and a faster processor. I saved the project onto a USB drive but when I opened the project in Movie Maker on the other computer the project wasn't there. The storyboard didn't have any pictures only 'Xs' where the pictures should have been. I then moved the folder that held all the pictures, music, etc and made sure that the path was the same. I thought maybe the project only created links to the files and didn't actually copy the pictures and music until the project was finalized and burned to a DVD. But that didn't work either. I did burn a test DVD of my project just to see if that opened on both computers, and it did. Both computers are running Windows Vista Home Premium so I have to assume that Windows Movie Maker is the same version on both. (I couldn't actually verify this because I couldn't find the version listed anywhere.) I am puzzled. You would assume that when you 'save' a project that it saves all of the pictures, etc. I tried searching the Microsoft website but couldn't find any information. Why can't I transfer the project/files? I have never had problems transferring files for any other software. Has anybody had this problem? Am I missing something? Your help and input will be greatly appreciated.

    I did copy the files to the faster computer but the project was still blank and Movie Maker did not ask me where the files were located. Is there somewhere in the program where I can tell it to locate the files? What you are saying makes a lot of sense but I don't know how to get Movie Maker to locate the files on the faster computer.

The file you saved just tells your computer where to get the picture files and sound files on the slower computer. You need to copy those files also. The program should ask you where you saved the picture and sound files on the faster computer.

Uninstal windows live movie maker would be my choice. However there is a place in control panel that will let you choose what opens for which extension type. I think it is under administration tools? Using my android at the moment so I can not look. If you want to keep the windows live movie let me know and I will go look for you regarding the correct place in the control panel to change which app opens a file type.

How to edit Media Center Recordings


Easiest FREE way I've found to edit Recordings made in Windows Media Center is done using Windows Live Movie Maker (Part of the Windows Live Essentials Free Downloads)
I have found that there is some technique involved in making successful edits of the recording.
  1. Open the recording you want to edit in Movie Maker, click save and name the save file what you wish (This file just stores your edit markers and makes no changes to the original recording)
  2. Since most recordings have some overlap, you first need to find the actual beginning and end of the recording, under tools, mark the start and end points using the buttons labeled as such. Click SAVE
  3. Editing the commercials is done in a similiar manner. Browse thru the recording to the start point of the commercial, under tools, click the SPLIT button, then browse to the end of the commercial segment, click split again. (This separates a the commercial portion from the rest of the recording) Right click the commercial segment, Click Delete on the drop down menu and that commercial is deleted (Note the run time is adjusted to the removal point) Click save and repeat on all other commercials.
  4. Once editing is complete, you should have about 22 minutes for a half hour show or 43 minutes for an hour show. Click Save
  5. Here is where I drove myself crazy till I learned the trick. Once edits are saved, CLOSE movie Maker. I don't know exactly why, but I spent a week learning that no matter what I did, 90% of the time when I tried to create movie, movie maker would LOCK UP. Trial and error eventually proved that if I made my edits, then Saved and closed Movie Maker. The re-opened Movie Maker and opened the edit file, that I could then Create Movie successfully every attempt. Click File, Create Movie, and choose your format. (I use widescreen) Saving process is slow, about the length of the show or 1% per minute. This creates a .WMV file about 1/3 the size of the original.
  6. If you want to compress the file even more you can use an encoder to convert the file from WMV to a compressed format (I prefer AVI) I use SUPER © from Erightsoft.com

Is it possible to import MP4 files into Windows Movie Maker 6.0 without having to convert to a different format first? I have a Pinnacle Video Transfer device that creates MP4 files, that I want to...


Windows Media Player 11 recognizes and plays MPEG-4 just fine but WMM doesn't recognize them. I would like to import some MPEG-4 files into Movie Maker and work with them - is there a codecs or something that allows this?

I'm sure I can find a program to convert MP4 into a format MM will recognize but if possible I'd like to just skip the conversion step and work with MP4 directly in MM.

Thanks!====================================================
Movie Maker is not compatible with MP4 files...
best bet would be to convert them to .wmv.

The following freebie might be worth a try:

Format Factory
http://www.pcfreetime.com/

All to MP4 / 3GP / MPG / AVI / WMV / FLV / SWF.
All to MP3 / WMA / AMR / OGG / AAC / WAV.
All to JPG / BMP / PNG / TIF / ICO / GIF / TGA.


You need some software to convert the protected M4P music file to unprotected MP3, WAV etc first, then you can import the mp3 files into Windows Movie Maker as background music.
TuneClone is such a software to convert the M4P music file to MP3, WAV easily. You can click here to download TuneClone and convert them to MP3 files and then import the music files into Windows Movie Maker project.


TuneClone uses a virtual CD burning technology to simulate the burning and ripping process and can convert M4P files to MP3 without any CD-R disc and do this work quickly. TuneClone installs a virtual CD-RW, it helps you burn any unprotected or DRM protected M4P, M4a, WMA music files onto the virtual CD, rips tracks on the virtual CD, encodes tracks onto MP3, WAV or WMA music files. It can repeat this audio converting procedure until your whole music collection is done.
Since the virtual CD emulates your computer RAM and hard disk as erasable CD-RW drive (Virtual CD-RW), the converting speed is faster than any other m4p to mp3 conversion programs.

Windows Movie Maker is video creating/editing software that is included in recent versions of Microsoft Windows. It contains features such as effects, transitions, titles/credits, audio track, timeline narration, and Auto Movie. New effects and transitions can be made and existing ones can be modified using XML code.

Can Not Transfer Video to Computer


The Samsung web site has a 32-bit Vista driver but no 64-bit driver. Come on, it's 2009 for God's sake!

FEAR NOT:

For Vista (or any OS), first FINALIZE* the mini-disk using your Samsung camera. FINALIZING creates a DVD out of your mini-disk. You can put that in your computer and it will play just like any DVD. If you want to edit your movies, your mini-DVD has .vob (movie) files on it.

Movie Maker won't import a .vob file so you'll have to convert it to .avi using a third-party conversion tool. I use Need4Video for around $50. I think there's free ones out there too.

And that's how I spent my summer vacation.
