Windows Movie Maker
has various multimedia functions; it can be used to make movies, documentaries, audio-video clips etc. MOV files
are not recognized in Windows Movie Maker
. To use an MOV file, one has to transfer the file to AVI format
. For this one can use the help of encoders like Super
. Before that, one should take care of the settings of video scale, aspect, frame and Bitrate kbps for a specific resolution of a video. The user must also choose the option of DIVI all models
when the coding process starts and save the file initially in the WMV format
before any conversion.
Windows Movie Maker does not recognize my .MOV files
Windows Movie Maker natively does not recognize MOV files.
The solution is to convert .MOV files into AVI files.
You can use Super
to do this conversion.
Here is an example of settings for a 320x240 video:
- Video Scale: 320:240
- Aspect: 4:3
- Frame/sec: 60
- Bitrate kbps: 3024
For audio, leave the default settings offered.
When coding begins, choose the option: DIVIX all models
Once you have completed the video editing with Movie Maker, simply save it in WMV format, then rename the extension .WMV to .AVI.
