MOvie Maker 2

Has anybody out there used Movie Maker 2?

I have been using Movie Maker 2 for a show and tell activity about editing. It is so easy to use and a novice can pick this up in about 30 minutes.

I have notice after copying back to tape that there is sometimes a discontinuity in the sound (music track) when going from one clip to the next. This is not always the case and it may depend on whether I have transitions in this area.

Sometimes everything is fine.

Any comments would be appreciated

I have never actually used the program before, but could it be that the background noise within the soundtracks themselves, are being heard stopping.

Unless you are using very expensive equipment there is always a bit of noise going on, and a lot of the time we only notice it when it suddenly stops. So during transitions there could be a slight gap between the audio tracks and you are hearing that.

This gap could also be in the music tracks. Again not using the program i don't know, but are you slicing the tracks or pushing them in, sometimes slicing them can cause to not place the tracks properly together and you get small gaps. Try zooming into the timeline and see if there are gaps.


p.s where abouts do you lecture?
