So I saw the Movie Maker Cult and I'm am edit hack so that probably wouldn't fly. Just got a new Sony Handycam. It's sick and the software works great for importing and all that, but it doesn't have any real edit functions other than trimming. I was trying to import my MPEG 2's into Movie Maker version 5.1. I get an error message that says I don't have a valid Codec. The Sony folks are telling me that Movie Maker can't read MPEG 2's. I am converting my clips into WMV's but at the rate that it's going, summer will be over by the time these things finish processing. What's the best way to get my clips to edit form. The camera set me back a lot, so I am not stoked to go out and spend more $$$ on software.
Links are great. I have done the search bar, but there are butt loads of things that have "movie maker" in them. Not helpful. I am sure there are some movie maker pros here. How about some help for a fliming newb.
