Professional filmmakers make movies using a special procedure. You can follow the same procedure when creating your own movie with Windows Vista Movie Maker.

These are the steps you need to follow:

- Import a video, photos and music for your movie into Movie Maker.

- Remove bad parts that you do not want to use.

- It has good material left over.

-Add some cool things like photos, titles, special effects, background music, spoken text and sound effects.

-Publish the finished movie on DVD.

In the left box of Windows Vista Movie Maker you will find all the "Tasks" for the movie you are going to do. Right near the word "Tasks" there are some buttons where you can switch between "Tasks" and "Collections".

program options

Before working on a video, review the options for Windows Vista Movie Maker. Please do the following:

-Click & # 39; Tools & # 39; -> & # 39; Options & # 39; in the menu.

-Click the Advanced tab.

-In the Video Properties section, select the NTSC option if you live in the United States. If you live in Europe or in another country using PAL, choose PAL.

-Select 4: 3 aspect ratio for a regular TV and select 16: 9 for a wide-screen TV.

-Click & # 39; Ok & # 39 ;.

Now you've set the default options and now you can import a video into Windows Vista Movie Maker to work with that video.

You can work with all types of video files, music files and image files. The following formats are compatible with Windows Vista Movie Maker:

-Video files: .asf, .avi, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, .wmv, and dvr-ms.

-image files: .bmp, .dib, .emf, .gif, .jfif, .jpe, .jpg, .png, .tif, .tiff and .wmf.

-Audi files: .aif, .aifc, .aiff, .sf, .au, .mp2, .mp3, .mpa, .snd, .wav and .wma.

collection Folders

There are no restrictions that say that a movie can only consist of material from a video tape, a folder, and so on. Every movie you make can contain material from a combination of media files. To keep everything in good shape, you can create collection folders in Windows Vista Movie Maker. A colletion folder is the same as a regular folder.

The collection folders you create in Windows Vista Movie Maker appear in the left pane by clicking the "View or hide collections" button.

To create a new collection folder, do the following:

- Right click & # 39; Imported Media & # 39 ;.

-In the menu that appears, click & # 39; New Collection Folder & # 39 ;.

- Type the name of the folder.

Import material into Windows Vista Movie Maker

If you want to use something in your movie, you need to import a copy from an existing folder on your hard drive to a collection folder in Movie Maker. You can do this by dragging photos and videos from the photo gallery to a collection folder.

Import photos and videos from Photo Gallery

- Open togehter with Windows Vista Movie Maker Windows Photo Gallery.

- Make sure you have opened both of these windows next to each other to make dragging files easier.

- Select the photo (s) and video (s) you need for the video in Photo Gallery and drag them into the collection folder you want to place them.

Import photos, videos and music from folders

- Click the collection folder in Movie Maker where you want the files in.

- Click the Import Media button on the toolbar.

- Browse to the folder containing photos, video and music and click on the file or hold Ctrl down to select multiple files.

- Click the Import button.

Import video from tape and DVD

If you click on the menu "File" you will see the option "Import from digital video camera".

This option only works if you have a digital video camera connected to the IEEE 1394 port or to a USB 2.0 port on your computer. There must be a tape in the camera and the camera must be turned on.

If all this is true, the "Import Video" tool will open. Follow the on-screen instructions to import the video from the camera.

To import a video from a DVD, you must copy .vob files from the disc to a folder on the hard disk. Then you can often rename the .vob files in .mpg files so you can import the .mpg files into Windows Vista Movie Maker.

Now you have material where you can work with. The video, photo and music files you import into Windows Vista Movie Maker will display an icon called "Clips". Each collection folder has its own unique clip collection. To look at the clips, you must first click on the name of the collection in the left pane.

You can also play a bit with the view (small icons, details etc.).

Split Clips

Sometimes there are bad parts in a clip that you do not want to use anymore and that have to be cut out of the film. If this is in one of your clips, you can split the clip into several parts, so you can choose which part to stay and which part can be deleted.

To share a clip, do the following:

- Click on the click you want to split and play the clip by clicking the play button.

- Pause the click on the place you want to split the clip (just before the bad part starts).

- Use the "Next Image" and "Previous Image" buttons to navigate to the exact frame where you want to share the clip. The frame displayed on the screen becomes the first frame in the new clip.

- Click the "Split" button.

- As you wish, you can give the clips a different name or you can remove the bad part of the clip.

This can be done exactly the same with an audio clip.

Make a movie automatically

If you have any clips in your collection, you can make an automatic movie. This feature doesn't give you much control over clip orders, special effects or titles, but it's a quick and easy way to make a simple movie.

Here's how it can be done:

- Select the clips you want to use in the automatic movie or press Ctrl + A to select them all.

- Click the "AutoMovie" button in the toolbar.

- Select an AutoMovie edit style.

- Click the "Enter a movie title" link to add a title to the movie.

- If you have selected an audio clip in the first step, click "Select sound or background music" and select an audio clip from the list.

- Finally, click on the "Create AutoMovie" button. It may take a few seconds.

In the storyboard, you see the title, the clip and some special effects. Select Play -> Play Storyboard from the menu to play the automatic movie. If the automatic movie looks good, you can save the movie by clicking "File" -> "Publish Movie" in the menu.

If the movie does not look good, you can always edit it so that it looks better.

Success makes your own movies!
