Thread: Windows Media File to DVD Playable File

  1. Default Windows Media File to DVD Playable File

    I have just completed a Windows Movie Maker movie (file type is WMF).

    Can I use Premier to burn a CD that will play on my home DVD player.

    Many thanks,

    Porto

    You should

    -set up a new project,
    -set your project setting to the desired settings (don't forget to go to 'project -> project Settings -> General' and then click the 'Scale clips to project dimensions' check box
    -save and exit the blank project
    -re-open the blank project
    -File -> Import -> filename.WMV (I don't know if it can handle a .WMF)
    -move the clip to the 'Timeline'
    -File -> Export -> Movie -> save as filename.AVI
    -Exit
    -Open a new project
    - Import the new .AVI and edit to your hearts content - then export to DVD


    Don't try to edit the .WMV, it will probably give you a headache

    LukeD is correct - when you are running a mid to top-of-the-line PC, have tons of memory, and seperate harddrives for work, scratch, and sound files. Then the simple method will work 98% of the time

    The steps I detailed are for use on low to mid range PC specs, doing one clip, then another - til you have all your clips converted to .AVI

    I know that the OP only has 1 big movie to work with but the outline I gave was to help all those who don't have access to a monster video editing system, but still want to do this, or are trying to convert a lot of smaller clips of varying formats into 1 big movie.

    I don't reccommend that you try and shortcut by importing all of your differently formatted clips and doing 1 big export to .AVI. The transcodeing progress bar just stalls every time I try and do that.

    My rule of thumb - convert each one-by-one to AVI and then combine and edit.

    I always save the blank project, import 1 clip, export to AVI, exit the project without saving, then repeat for each clip.

    enjoy
