Re: MP4 Codec ?? 3/6/2015 8:08:59 PM   (Total replies: 0)
I had the same issue with a new Windows 8.1 computer. Windows movie maker 2012 can use the mp4 files ok but the lack of a timeline was a pain. Windows movie Maker 6.0 complained about the codec. In the end I installed Haali Media Splitter and the MP4 files from my camera import and play ok. <a href="http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Haali-Media-Splitter">http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Haali-Media-Splitter</a>

Re: PIP Plus 1.0 released 7/15/2005 5:26:51 AM   (Total replies: 1)
Hi Rehan I finally got around to convincing my IT support to install PIP Plus (you may recall I don't have admin access). I start MM and get your PIP Plus welcome. I click for the trial, I immediately got told I've got 0 days left. Do I need to have admin access to run PIP Plus or just to install it?

Yes the XP installer looks really dodgy to me. Suspiciously large, obvious typos in the dialog boxes. Nick can you just post a zip file.

Re: .Flv Support In Windows Movie Maker 7/15/2006 9:56:03 AM   (Total replies: 1)
Thanks for the VLC media player tip and the excellent instructions skyzthelimit ;) I used <a href="http://video.qooqle.jp/dl/">YouTube Downloader</a> to get the flv file. Then <a href="http://www.videolan.org/vlc/">VLC</a> worked perfectly for me in transcoding the FLV file to WMV. What a great free program. I must say without your detailed instructions I wouldn't have thought at first glance that this "media player" was capable of such transcoding - it's not that ...

G'day Callan and welcome to the forum You've dredged up a very old post. VLC is VERY slow to transcode in this manner. There are other faster tools available these days. Personally I use <a href="http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/">Any Video Converter Freeware</a>

Just downloaded Any Video Converter and installed it again - Works for me on Win XP. Did you opt to skip the registry booster? That's some recent addition packaged with AVC Free which might be causing you trouble. I skipped it. I suggest you uninstall the registry booster.

Re: 240 Tranjelly transition shapes for the free Pixelan SpiceFX 4 demo 8/10/2008 10:45:56 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I <a href="http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=172467">asked</a> Michael from Pixelan about the SPG files. Here's his answer: <i>The SPG files are resolution-independent code that creates the geometry of an effect or transition in the Wizards. They are much superior to bitmapped gradients, since they render clean at any output size yet also contain the softness/organicness that our effect geometries have been known for for years in other editing systems. It's an ...

Re: 240 Tranjelly transition shapes for the free Pixelan SpiceFX 4 demo 8/10/2008 10:55:31 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Hi fayfen I don't know about the Pixelan XML format - I just used the TranJelly LE Wizard and then modified the file names in the XML. Presumably if you use the wizard to change parameters and study the changes in the XML, you could work out some of the XML details. You could also just try changing some of the numbers to see what effect they have. I'm guessing that the parameters available in the PRO wizard might still be available in the free demo if you know which parts of the XML to ...

240 Tranjelly transition shapes for the free Pixelan SpiceFX 4 demo 8/10/2008 8:37:01 AM   (Total replies: 7)
In the <a href="https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?cl=66568&c=ib&aff=158323">Pixelan SpiceFX 4.0, 5.0 or 6 package</a> there's a free Tranjelly LE wizard for creating bevelled transitions. The wizard allows you to choose from 48 different shapes. I noticed that there were many more shapes (.SPG files) not available from the Wizard and I was curious as to what they look like. Presumably Pixelan's SpiceMaster PRO allows access to these extra shapes via the wizard <a ...
