Postby pinky75910 » Wed Aug 20, 2008 6:25 pm

Finally got WMM 2.6 on my new Vista comp to recognize avi files, imported them, and made a simple test video. Thought my troubles were over. Then I tried using effects, and I get -

Went through many troubleshooting, and finally they suggest a complete System Restore.

what codec is your avi footage encoded with?

If that's not the problem, then it just might be WMM being emo (From past experience, WMM's performance only goes downhill until it stops working altogether)

...that's not a codec.

gspot will tell you what codec a file was encoded with (just drag and drop the file into the program window)

your problem is most likely divx (it still could be WMM being sucky and vista being suckier...but the divx thing is definitely the majority of your problem)

the solution is to re-encode your clips with huffyuv (since WMM and lagarith don't play nicely) using vdubmod

Hmm, what would happen if I uninstalled Divx?

you wouldn't be able to play your divx stuff then (it would give you either a black screen or a 'missing codec' error most likely)

Hmm, but I wasn't able to import my file til I dl'd VLC Media Player.

Well, wait, how can it be a codec problem? It's the effects freaking out whether there's something imported or not.

strange things happen, but vlc media player is just that, a media player.
Installing it shouldn't have any effect on WMM (unless VLC is as unreliable as vista)

Like I said before, it may be WMM being its sucky self.

And I guarantee you that editing with divx will cause problems (without exception, tis only a matter of time)

VLC Player did the trick for me. So, what do you recommend? Even if I use your re-encoding, "WMM is still being its sucky self" - so, what, I should just go and buy a new editor?

Re-encode your source files into Huffyuv and take only the clips you will need to make the video because Huffyuv creates large files:

then go to file->save

use those to mark the beginning and the end of the "clips" you want so you can save room

and buying a new video editing program (list here) might actually help you out if you get sick of WMM

Encoding isn't my problem, Even with nothing imported, the effects still shut it down. Does anyone have any suggestions that could help fix Movie Maker?
