How can I save my project in Windows Movie Maker 2.6?

Hi I made a movie that is 26 minutes long, with photos, effects and music.  I need to burn it to a dvd.  However, I am only offered the opportunity to save on my computer.  When I so it saves only the part of it, I made several times and saved the part varies between 5 and 20 minutes of pictures, but with all the music.  There is another option to save to the camera, but it's not a useful for my application.  There is no option to publish or save on DVD, so I wanted to save it on my laptop and then burn from there.  I can't cut the length of the project.  I spent hours trying to fix this, solutions of Googling, but in vain.  Do I need more RAM on my laptop?  Please help, this is something that I have to return to normal as soon as possible.  Thank you :-)

================================================
Looks like music files is perhaps not fully compatible with the film
Maker. MP3s can be problematic. The more reliable format is. WMA.

Two things that may be worth a try...

When you are ready to register... go to... Tools / Options / Compatibility
tab and disable all filters / OK.

Try to save.

When you save... choose the DV - AVI option... it can produce a better
result, but the file size will be much larger.

  • How to open a new project in Windows Movie Maker?

    I click on new project as the instructions say, but nothing happens. The last project that I worked on is still there. I expect a clean slate to appear.  Do I have to remove the old project first?  Does this mean that I can never change this project again without creating again from scratch? Is it possible to change once a project was converted into a movie?

    1 save your last project of ALL.
    Click FILE > save project under > give it a name of file > select where the project should be saved to. The project will be registered as (file name). MSWMM

    2 RE: New project.
    As long as you have an empty window of WMM, you don't have to go file > new project. It's a waste of time.
    Straigt go to the IMPORT section.

    3 RE: is it possible to change once a project has been "published" (not converted). ?
    Yes and no. You can always import the movie file in WMM and do some editing.
    But it won't be as easy as having a MSWMM (registered) imported to WMM.

  • How to combine two video projects in Windows Movie Maker?

    How to combine two projects?

    I started a project and I would like to import and more old project to combine.

    I guess that you are referring to the project .mswmm files?

    The following steps may be worth a try:

    Reach... File / open project... Select a project file.
    When the project appears on the timeline... go to...
    Edition / select all.

    Open a different project... to... Editing / paste.

    Now the content of the two projects should be on
    the chronology.

    To add more doing the same thing...

    Edition / select all... open a project... Editing / paste

    Another method would be to publish (save) each
    the project in film WMV format and then re-import
    both WMV clips and slide both to the
    timeline. Then, you could publish it as a simple video.

  • My Windows Movie Maker collapsed in response. How can I save my project?

    Hello

    You can try the following steps and try to save the project:

    Method 1: Increase the size of the swap file

    Check out the following link to increase the size of swap file

    Change the size of virtual memory

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/change-the-size-of-virtual-memory

    Method 2:

    Save the movie in smaller Sections

    Save the movie in the sections a half or a third party. This reduces the complexity of the table of storyboard / timeline by reducing the number of individual items that appear on the table of the storyboard / timeline. To save the movie in smaller portions, follow these steps:

    Step 1:

    Remove and retain a portion of the film

    a. Select a subset of the items in the table of storyboard / timeline.

    b. in the Edit menu, click on cut.

    c. on the file menu, click on save movie file.

    Note: This avoids the part of the movie which is always on the timeline or storyboard, not the article that you cut.

    d. in the movie recording Wizard, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration process.

    Step 2:

    Import the Portion and save the entire movie

    a. when the movie record Wizard is finished, on the file menu, click Import media items

    b. click on the file that you saved in steps 3 to 5 of part 1, and then click Import.

    c. right click on the imported file and then click on copy.

    d. click on the area of the table of the Storyboard where you want to insert the file.

    e. in the Edit menu, click on paste.

    f. on the file menu, click on save movie file.

    g. follow the instructions in the wizard movie recording.

    h. clear the film Show when I click on the finished dialog box, and then click Finish.

    I asked before how I can create 3D canvas looking for image

    Now my question is if and how can I save this project together in order to be

    power to apply it later to other images without going through the process with each image manually?

    You can do this is to aid. You can save a set of changes you apply to an image, save the action and play later by another image, or even apply it to a batch of images.

    Press F9 to open the Actions Panel.

    Then, create a new Action...

    Name it and change the settings. Here you can assign a keyboard shortcut for your new Action:

    Then, click record to begin recording.

    Follow all the steps in the tutorial, and then stop the Action:

  • Cannot open a project in Windows Movie Maker after the backup in Windows DVD Maker

    I imported with success of media in Windows Movie Maker, Movie published by using Windows DVD Maker as a guest just so that I could see how it would look.  I was able to view what I had engraved on a DVD and was very happy about how he already produces.  When I returned to Windows Movie Maker and tried to open my project to continue adding multimedia elements to it, I can't open it - it tells me that it is not a valid file in Windows Movie Maker.  Can find my project in My Documents in the category Videos, I'm still not able to open it.  I wonder if I shouldn't have saved in Windows DVD Maker.  I hope that I'm not "all over again.

    I would greatly greatly appreciate it if anyone can help.  It is a very special project for a class reunion.

    This is the first time I used a forum so I hope I've submitted it correctly.

    Thank you!

    NancyLouse,

    Windows DVD Maker and Movie Maker store files with different file extensions.  This means that if you named the file 'file Movie Maker' and the DVD Maker 'file' file the real file names would actually file. MSWMM and file. MSDVD

    To display the extensions on all the files follow these steps:
    -Click on the ORB to start and Control Panel
    -In Control Panel, click Classic view in the upper left corner
    -Click on Folder Options, click view
    -Scroll to "Hide Extensions for known Types file" and uncheck this box

    The search in the folder now where you saved these files or use the search function, you should see the 2 different files.

    What version of Windows are you using?  If the Windows Vista Ultimate and the file has been deleted somehow you can be lucky.

    Vista Ultimate is a feature called previous versions.  To restore the file back to it's previous state, you can do a right click on the folder where the document has been stored (if the Documents may start, right-click on Documents) then go to properties

    -Click the previous versions and you will see the dates corresponding to previous versions of the file you are looking at.
    -Select a date and time that corresponds to when the file in this folder was in operational condition and double-click the file to open it

    Find the file in the folder newly open and drag the file to your desktop (be sure not to drag to the exact location where the file was initially as not to overwrite the file).

    I hope this helps
