Hello Blah I think the easiest way of doing it would be with bluescreen or greenscreen or something like that.

Hello, Ran 938 and welcome to the forums! That's the XP version of the code. If you're on Vista, you'll probably need to use the Vista version: <post>126998</post>.

Re: Is there any way to place markers in the timeline? 12/26/2007 8:27:01 PM   (Total replies: 2)
Hi Allison. 1. Start by putting the video clip in your project as normal. 2. In the Timeline view, drag a copy of your clip onto the audio track. Make sure it's lined up with the original copy of the clip in the video track. 3. You can mute the video track now. It will still take the sound from the audio track. 4. Split the video clip at the begining and end of each point where you want to add pics. Delete the split bits, and replace them with the pics. 5. You'll have to ...

Re: How can I fix this transition 1/18/2009 7:36:47 AM   (Total replies: 0)
Hi Neophyte. I don't think that's the OP's problem. After all, he is a "Smart Dude", so let's give him credit for being one! I think the conversion to jpg was probably just a side effect of the picture-hosting website he used to share it with us. I tried testing the transition myself, using that picture as a png image, and it <b>did </b>come out diagonal or Z-shaped, not square. The transition was slanted so the squares were rhombuses (rhombi? What is the correct plural?) and ...

Hi Smart Dude I've no idea what's causing the problem. It looks like Movie Maker just doesn't like that pattern as a transition. Meanwhile, try using some of C:\'s square transitions instead: <post>29045</post>.

Here's an example of Smart Dude's transition looking all diagonal and Z-shaped. <a href="http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=8v174nTInpk">http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=8v174nTInpk</a>

Hi Bobby. <a href="http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm">Balabolka</a> is a free speech synthesiser/recorder which uses all the computer voices already installed on your system, like Microsoft Sam or Microsoft Mike, etc. I've never been able to get programs to record sound going out through the speakers to work. They always just record silence instead. So I can't recommend any for you. Sorry. But most YouTube capture/download/converter programs have an option to convert the sound ...

Re: free sound software? 8/9/2008 10:59:47 AM   (Total replies: 2)
Greetings everyone. I'd still recommend using something like Balabolka instead of Narrator and Sound Recorder: <a href="http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm">http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm</a> Narrator seems to spend most of its time just saying "Foreground window foreground window foreground window." And sound recorder programs usually just record silence instead of the computer's sound output, which is nicer than recording Narrator saying "Foreground window foreground ...

Hi fayfen. I've no idea what sound card I use. Just whatever came with the computer. It's a Dell computer, so probably some kind of Dell sound card, but I don't know which one. (A quick Google reveals that there are dozens.) I double-clicked on the speaker icon, and the volume window came up showing "Master Volume", "Wave" "SW Synth" and "CD player". Which of those would I need to change?

Hi Curt. Like I said, it's a lot simpler if you just forget about Narrator and Sound Recorders and stuff like that. Balabolka is a free text-to-WAV converter. It's not perfect but it's a bit more user friendly than doing it the long way round. Follow the link in my earlier post. I used it <a href="http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=JL3OjMMpAM8">here</a> and <a href="http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6tQ3bqLjnaI">here</a>. And if it weorks for me, then it should work for you.
