I have tried to transfer a DV tape using WMM. It seems to save in one big file although it identifies clips. (I usually use Element which saves the separate clips) Since the tape is a whole hour, the resultant file is massive (see my query earlier about FAT to NCFS) Does anyone know if there is a setting somewhere that will cause WMM to save clips separately?
With the files being so large, I usually just capture about 20 minutes worth at a time, edit that bit, then save as a DV-AVI file, you can delete the original 20 minutes capture file then to recover free space. Do the same with another 20 minutes and so on, then later join all the DV-AVI files in WMM and do final overall editing then save as DV-AVI again and later burn the final to video DVD.
When I connect the camera, WMM runs automatically . The Microsoft help page says access WMM from all programs/accesories but WMM is not there. Where is it or, to put it another way, how do I run it without the camera - for editing etc,
I use xp home and never created the entertainment folder nor put it there Why dont you do a search for movie maker then create a shortcut. Dont search for windows movie maker else you'll get every file on the planet with windows oin it
