Thread: Using Windows Movie Maker

  1. #1

    Default Using Windows Movie Maker

    I mostly use Windows Movie Maker (WMM) to combine videos and add effects. But the problem I'm facing is, using WMM poors the quality of the video. Sometimes the video file stucks. I don't know why. Is there any other software as easy to use like WMM but with great features?

    I use Sony Digital Camera DSC-H3 to take videos.

    What is the spec of the computer you are using? Are you using a Firewire or USB connection to transfer video from your camcorder to the computer (I'm not familiar with that camcorder model)?

    There is in-built USB for transfering videos from my Cam Recorder to PC. PC I use is highly configured.

    From the model number of the camera, it looks like it's a still camera which can also record video. Is it like the one in this ebay link ?

    If so, the video quality is not going to be particularly good to start with. According to the spec (assuming that is indeed the camera you're using) it records video in MPEG1 (640 x 480 @ 30fps 640 x 480 @ 16.6fps 320 x 240 @ 8.3fps).
    I've noticed a similar loss in quality when using Windows Movie Maker to export this to AVI or WMV.

    The camera looks like it's excellent for still photos, but if the video quality is not acceptable, even at the highest export settings, all I can suggest is looking for a cheap mini dv camcorder which should produce far sharper videos (which if you're careful, you might find for less than the cost of the camera you currently have).
