Re: Convert corrupted VOB file to .wmv file for use in Windows Movie Maker 1/27/2012 2:29:45 AM   (Total replies: 1)
Can you try again with Freemake Video Converter? Pick the clip that is causing problems. Now click on the 'edit' button to the right that looks like a pair of scissors. See if you are able to move through the clip and see all the parts. If not, see if you can cut out the part that isn't working and just save the stuff around it. (There's a video tutorial on the Freemake website explaining how to mark the start and end points and then cut out a clip before converting.)

Thank you for the detailed description. This could definitely come in handy for someone else trying to capture footage from a DVD camcorder if they experience problems similar to yours. Glad you figured it out and happy Movie Making!

Re: Video file importing as audio 4/15/2012 1:29:06 AM   (Total replies: 0)
Yeah, this happens very often with .avi files that aren't 100% supported by Movie Maker. The solution is to convert the file to a format that Movie Maker supports (.wmv preferably) and that should work fine. One converter that works well for creating .wmv files is Freemake Video Converter (freemake.com); but only install the program, not any add-ons it offers to install.

Re: Unwanted Black Border on Imported Video 8/17/2013 8:27:52 PM   (Total replies: 1)
What's the original aspect ratio of the project? If it is widescreen, make sure you have set your project to widescreen also. Or, is it possible that the imported JibJab video has embedded black bars?

Can you point me to the original JibJab template you are trying use and download? Are you sure it creates a standard ratio of 4:3? All the ones I played with seemed to be widescreen (16:9). If you were to download that as standard 4:3, it would have to be placed within a box leaving black on top and bottom. I would just check each step and see where the bars are being introduced. Start with JibJab and see if it is widescreen or not. Then check your downloader (which one are you using?) ...

Re: Unwanted Black Border on Imported Video 8/18/2013 3:37:55 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I just did a calculation of the aspect ratio you mentioned: 640 = 16 x 40 360 = 9 x 40 Aspect ratio = 16:9 (widescreen). If it were 640 x 480, that would be 4:3 640 = 4 x 160 480 = 3 x 160 Aspect ratio = 4:3 (standard) So the answer is the clip is widescreen. Either in the conversion, or in adding it to a 4:3 project, the black bars are getting added. The only way to avoid this is to use it in a 16:9 project (Tools > Options > Advanced > Aspect Ratio) or to use some of the ...

Re: converting MOD.MOV file type 9/24/2012 12:56:26 PM   (Total replies: 1)
My recommendation would be .wmv video. I'm not sure that is one of your choices. If not, Freemake Video Converter will convert .mod to .wmv. If you want to continue with AkmeFFmpeg, try the simplest codec in the list. Don't pick MPEG2, H.264, DivX, etc. since those often cause problems in Movie Maker. Basically, just try some experimentation to see which will import. Also, be sure to make a couple edits and see if you can save it as a movie (File > Save Movie). That's where most codec ...
