Hi all, am brand new here. As my username implies, I'm an audio techie, not a video one, which is why I've come to ask for help! I'm not a grand cinimatographer, just a musician who wants to put some videos on Youtube.
Okay. Recently, I learned that all Windows users were entitled to Windows Movie Maker, and that, for whatever reason, I didn't have it. So I went to the official site and downloaded it, and began to teach myself to use it. It looked straightforward enough. All I really wanted to do was cut out some unnecessary speaking in the beginning of a video. (I don't see a version number on it, but it's probably the latest). I can start with great source material, but once I import it into Windows Movie Maker, the sound is HORRIBLE!! It has lots of high-frequency aliasing like a really lo-fi MP3 file. I have looked fruitlessly through the settings to see if maybe there is some compression going on that can be adjusted or eliminated. The only import settings relate to video size and aspect ratio. Has anyone encountered this before? Is it just me? What am I to do? Thanks in advance.
