Unwanted Black Border on Imported Video 8/17/2013 4:01:58 PM   (Total replies: 2)
In Movie Maker 6.0 I imported a brief video (from JibJab). After it is converted to either .wmv or .avi there is a black border at the top and bottom of the screen in Movie Maker. How do I get rid of those unwanted borders?

When this clip is produced by JibJab it says " Frame Width 640" and Frame "Height 360." When converted by Format Factory to .avi its "aspect ration is 4:3." I do not use widescreen.

Blaine, I'm sorry to say that I am going in circles. All I do in Jib Jab is click on Felice Navidad and when it opens I personalize it (by adding faces). I do not see anywhere in that process to select or change the aspect ratio. I use Format Factory to convert it to .avi format. Again, I do not see where I can select or change ratio. When I change the aspect ratio in Movie Maker it produces a clip with black borders all around the picture. So that has not helped. A new issue is that I ...

Hi Blaine, I am impressed with your calculations. Thanks for doing all of that thinking about this. I apppreciate it very much. I'll try starting a new project of just the JibJab and changing the aspect ration and see what happens. Many thanks, Curt

Rob, Your link leads to several choices for downloading WinX DVD Ripper. The choice dated September 16th (the one next to the bottom of the list) is the correct one. It leads to winx-dvd-ripper-pt-full-oct.exe which is the free program. The "oct" in that link is the key to being the free version.

Neo, I downloaded WinX DVD Ripper, but it was a trial version good only for less than 5 minutes use. The message said that the Fre Platinum offer expired October 1st. Any suggestyions. This free offer was timely for me. I am making multiple copies of a set of DVDs using RecordNow. When copying the last DVD in the set (naturally), Record Now started acting up. It is rejecting every blank DVD I try to use and they are all good, new ones and have worked fine when copying the earlier disks ...

Neo, There is a "Movie Maker" listed in both "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)." Which is most likely version 6.0?

Blaine, Thank you. I will copy all of the contents of the (x86) Shared folder to the Shared folder in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker. Hopefully I will then have everything back in my 6.0 version. If that works, I will then wonder where I will the Shared folder for the Movie Maker Live version?

I copied all of the contents of the (x86) Shared folder to the Shared folder in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker, but I still do not see all of the transitions in version 6.0. For example, I do not see "Barn Doors Open" and "Barn Doors Closed." Is it possible that those transitions do not work with 6.0?

Blaine, The "Allow email tracking" box has been checked for several years and the "check box in the upper left of both of those threads was checked, but I still did not receive emails when those threads were updated. But I received an email when you just repled to this thread. I m on a different computer now. My regular computer is back at HP for repairs. Perhaps the lack of emails had something to do with whatever was wrong with the computer that is now back at HP. I did not think of ...
