Difference between a project file and a finished movie file.
A project file is the container file used by Window Live Movie Maker for all the editing. This file has the extension “.WLMP”. Double clicking on this file will launch the Windows Live Movie Maker program. An exported movie has the extension “.WMV” this file is exported movie, and double clicking on it will launch a number of different media player programs such as Windows Media Player or VLC.
Sharing finished movies inside Windows Live Movie Maker:
There are three options for adding text to movies using Windows Live Movie Maker. Each text option has its own set of animations to control how the text appears on the screen. You can see a preview of this animation by hovering your mouse over different options
Transitions are short animations used to transition from one clip to the next, or at the beginning and ending of a movie. Note: The available transitions for the first clip in a movie are limited.
Effects, also known as filters, change the look of a clip. Windows Live Movie Maker offers many different looks, and multiple filters can be used on one clip to achieve many many combinations of effects.
Adding Multiple Effects
Cutting footage from a clip is a really helpful task when there unwanted footage in the middle of a good clip. This involves cutting the clip before and after the bad footage to remove it. Using the split clip function is another way to set in and out points as well.
Setting in and out points is the first task that will be performed on every clip used in a movie. You need to choose where you want the clip to start (in point) and where it needs to end (out point)
