Anyone else run into this problem?
What if you saved as you went along? I haven't made anything that long. But, I do backup often so I don't lose stuff. Would you lose it even if you had saved? It freezes up on me even when I'm making short videos.

have you tried rehans pan zoom effects? they really enhance movie maker. It's $8 for the download.

EDITED TO ADD:

after posting this i (of course) figured it out myself. BUT i decided i better post how so the next person wondering will know! and i left my original inquiry in case it helps explain things.

 

to edit the length of each clip, look at your movie on the bottom of the screen where it is shown in the timeline, (storyboard without music, and timeline with music clips.) click on the individual clip you want to lengthen or shorten and then hold your curser over the line on the right of the clip, the one that separates it from the next clip. you should get a red "left-right" arrow. when you hover and get this arrow, a hove messgae says "Click and drap to trim the clip." as you do this, another hove message appears and shows you the length of the clip, left dragging makes the clip shorter, and right dragging makes it longer! hope this helps someone else!

 

morgan, sarah or anyone else knowledgeable about WMM:

 

i am just getting started with this, i'm only using picture files, and i dont need my pics to show for more than 2 seconds. my problem is that so far my video is over 12 minutes long, because of the length of each slide (each slide is on the screen for like 5-6 seconds, and i've got over 160 pics, hence the long length of the entire video, AND i'm not done adding pics! yikes!)

 

does anyone know how to make each slide shorter? i will keep playing with it until someone answers, but i havent been able to figure it out yet so in the meantime i thought i'd ask :)

one thing i havent figured out is how to shorten multiple clips at one time, instead of individually shotening the length one by one. if anyone knows this, reply away!

Tools --> options --> advanced --> picture duration

 

But I think it only works for pictures you haven't added yet. Maybe there is a way to select all & shorten everything.

Another option if you are looking to speed up or slow down a specific clip is to: Click on the clip you are working with, right click your mouse (I think), choose "video effects" and from there you can select to speed up the clip double time or slow it down. There are a few other great options under that screen too. I hope this makes sense. I have a raging migraine but of course can't stay away from BDW, even when sick...

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
