Exporting from Windows Movie Maker

on Monday, February 4, 2008

Like iMovie, Windows Movie Maker also enables you to export video for a variety of applications. Windows Movie Maker is especially well suited to exporting movies for Internet playback. To export a movie for online viewing, follow these steps:
  1. Open the project that you want to export (such as the Chapter 1 project).
  2. Choose File➪Save Movie File. The Save Movie Wizard appears.
  3. Choose an export format for your movie and then click Next. For now I recommend choosing My Computer.
  4. Enter a filename for your movie and choose a location in which to save the file.
  5. Click Next again. The Save Movie Wizard shows details about the file, including the file size.
  6. Click Next again. The export process begins.
  7. When export is done, click Finish. Your movie will probably begin playing in Windows Media Player. Enjoy!
