  7. (deleted last post) Oh alright I just figured out how to make custom ones, there's probably a nicer way but this still works, and involves no coding or anything.

    1. Install Blaine's icons.
    2. Open up the directory My Computer > Local Disk C: > Program Files > Movie Maker > Shared > AddOnTFX.
    3. Here are all of the image file used, make a copy of all of them so you can always get them back. You can keep them in the same folder, it won't matter.
    4. Now take one of the original images and open it up with Paint or whatever, and edit it to say or show whatever you like. I bet you could even just have a new picture in there all together if you copy/paste it. When you're done, save it as the original filename.
    5. Now whenever you open WMM2 and go to where you would normally find the TV Ratings to add in, select the one that you edited, and your edited picture will be in there.

    If you ever want the original back, just copy/paste the copy you made in step 3 back into Paint. (I'm sure ya know what I mean.)

  10. I am sending you this note because I am making a conscious effort to thank people who offer their services, advice, and help on the internet to amateurs like me. If it weren't for you and countless like you-- the internet and computer would be a limited and frustrating experience. Thanks for helping out!

  11. Hey, thanks for this but I downloaded it and intalled it but I can't seem to figure out how to work it. And by the way does anyone know where I can figure out a way to make a video go faster but not double speed just just faster than normal ans slower than double speed. Thanks -CJ

  12. They are done as 'Titles' on your video. The details are given above. Look for them in the section on 'One Line' titles.

  13. Also, for custom speed effects, check later in my Blog. (Or search for 'Speed')

  14. Hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a music video title. Such as one that would overlay the first frame of a video in the bottom left hand corner like what you see in music videos ;)

  15. Check out www.windowsmoviemakers.net/forums for info on a Music Video Title. As for my downloads, yes, they are virus free. Many downloads confirm that but scan them yourself if you want to be sure.

  16. HELP! how do you download it (i am dumb)

  17. ok i installed it and it doesn't seem to work. i can't find it under one line titles at all. btw, i have a question too. does anyone know how to like add like arrows pointing at random stuff On a video? i don't know if it's possible but i want to see if i could do it. kind of like a subtitle but basically something that you could put anywhere on the video, not just at the bottom. say, an arrow with accompanying text pointing at a person on the left side

  18. Are you on a 64-bit version of Windows by any chance? As for the arrows, check the WindowsMovieMakers.net forums and search for "25 random titles". You could use the WingDing fonts and some arrow characters to point at whatever you wanted.

  19. I am using 64-bit Vista and it doesn't work.

  20. The installer is a 32-bit installer, but there is no reason it can't work on 64-bit Vista. The problem is that under 64-bit Vista, it creates the directory in the wrong place. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Movie Maker, copy the complete contents of the Shared folder over to C:\Program Files\Movie Maker. Then it should work the next time you start WMM.

  21. I keep getting a network error, and it won't install. What's wrong?

  22. Cool but how do you use it in the Live Movie Maker?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Microsoft hasn't released any details on customizing Windows Live Movie Maker...

  24. How can i get the black squares?

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Videoman23, I changed them many years back to the blue version shown above. Feel free to edit the images to make the background a solid black instead, if that is your preference. You'll find the image files in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX
