Hello, so yeah I am having some trouble with making an AMV considering I have never used a video program and while trying the first step of the process it won't work. So here go my questions so far:

1. When trying to import an anime from my computer to Movie maker this error popped up:
Ouran High School Host Club - 07 [CADE3E15].avi could not be imported. The required codec was not downloaded automatically because the Download codecs automatically check box is not selected in the Options dialog box.


I have read the FAQ and the answer to my question might be in there but I might not have the right terminology.

2. How do I turn off subtitles in an anime? I use both SM player and Jet Audio.


If anyone could answer these questions it would be most appreciated. Sorry if these are totally noob questions. I need to start somewhere :]

well first of all. Use DVDs.

To remove subtitles you can crop 'em out with Vdubmod

and damnit. I need that flashing banner -_-

if you are using fansubs there's no way to "turn off" the subtitles, they are hard encoded into the video file.

it's not flashing but it's still a link.

hobby, the term is hobby =D
but answering what u were after, what katie means is dont use the divx/xvid codecs for any video u are importing into WMM or vegas or any other video editing program. to find the codec of ur file u can USUALLY just right click on it and go properties and it will tell you. (there are a few circumstances where it doesnt) your .avi file is a container as apposed to the codec of the file itself. most fansubs footage are in xvid or divx codec and thus work really poorly to edit with (apart from the terrible quality and subtitles).
a lot of this is explained in the guide i linked to you in my earlier post. seriously it will take u a while ot read some of it, and u dont even have to read the whole thing in one go, just read the first part as it relates to your project, and when you need more information, reference it again.
hope that explains it a bit better
