Windows Movie Maker help
« on: March 23, 2008, 05:19:56 PM »
Could anybody tell me if it's possible to make a movie on WMM which consists entirely of text?
With my tiny brain, I've worked out how to add titles, credits etc - but that's all :(
Can anyone help, please?

Gah, c'mon folks, surely there must be someone out there who's more technically savvy than I am...

...that dog over there, for example ;D

The future of the entertainment industry relies on your help!*

Steve, tell me more. You've decided to use a purely visual media as a mean to convey the written word? ;D
Are you going to include pictures or will it be just texts? :)

I'm planning to conquer Youtube, chief. Or at least annoy people on there ;D

Hi Steve,
I'm sure you can type in as much text as you want just by using the Title Credits option.. and just continue with it that way? My hubby likes to upload videos to youtube with some political message :D  He always does it that way.

Hi Sarah, and thanks for the help :)

Thanks also to Mairi & Laure who tried to explain things to me by using finger puppets  ;D

Well, thanks to everyone who helped :)
I succeeded in creating the worst video since 'The Muppets Take Manhattan'
& uploading it to Youtube.
Now...can anyone help by suggesting ways in which I could improve this disasterpiece, please?

Roll the film...
