So how would I convert a "Windows Movie Maker Project" (*.MSWMM) file to a different kind of video file (Like MPEG, MP4, or anything else you can think of) or how could I save my video as a different kind of file besides "Windows Movie Maker Project" (*.MSWMM)? Please tell me I want to host the video on the Internet and I have yet to find a site that supports "Windows Movie Maker Project" (*.MSWMM) files. I dont care what I have to do/download just please help me.

yYoure not saving the movie. What that is doing is saving your project file so that if you wanted to quit for the day and continue editing the next you'll be able to continue where you left off.

COMPLETE STEP 3 on the LEFT - YOU MUST use the FINISH the movie.

Under your photo to the left are 3 title steps.

1. CAPTURE / IMPORT

2. EDIT MOVIE

3. FINISH MOVIE


You need to complete step 3 which takes all of you project and allows you to save it as WMV or an DV-AVI file. You cannot save it as a MPEG. If an MPEG is needed then save it as a DV/AVI and then convert it using another utilty or DVD Software. I recommed Sonic MyDVD.


Good luck. Wink

actually, just go to "File/Export Movie" it will save as a .WMV but then you can convert it into an .mpeg file with one of the free progs off the net

Anything you say is beneath me
