Hi, I am Bob Stovall of the 7DollarVideoStore.com. And what we are going to look at today is making a video from still photographs using Windows Movie Maker. So of course, the first thing you need to do is open Windows Movie Maker, which what we have already done here. So, we do not have to do that.
And the next thing that we are going to do if we are going to make a video from still images is go over to the Capture Video menu on the left over here and click on Import Pictures. And that should take us to the My Pictures folder. And we have done here is we have already have a folder pictures called video-from-stills. We are going to use that today.
And what we have got in this folder, we have created a title slide, as you can see here. And then we have a series of photographs, this is of a home for real estate movie. And then we have a credit slide with our website name and phone number at the end. So, what we are going to do is, we are going to select all of these images. And we are going to import them.
Okay, now they have been important and we want to do is we want to drop them into the time line. Now the time line is down in this lower area, the blue area that you see at the bottom of the screen. And that is where you actually put the movie together. So, we are going to drag this into the time line, just grab each one. And we will drag them in there. And we are not going to make you wait to this whole thing.
Okay, so now all the videos are in the time line, and if we bring the time line marker back to the beginning, you can go up to this little area on the upper right part of your screen and you click the Play button and you can view what you have so far. And, you will see that these are approximately 5 seconds each, maybe a little bit too much. So we are going to leave at that just for this project. You know, see that you have a total of a 40-second movie over here on the right, and it is just going through on the play item.
So now, I am going to stop this for a second because we do not need to use that anymore. All the pictures are imported and ready to go. And what we are going to do is we are going to put some effects in between this.
So what you do here is you grab each one and you go to here where it says Edit Movie on the left, and go down to Video Transitions. We are just going to stick a sample today and use the bar as one, I was going to show it to you on the right. I show you the sample of what it says. And, what we want to do is take this transition and then you just pull it down and you drop it in between the frames. And then, you do that with each succeeding set of images and it will render it. And once again, we are going to jump ahead here.
Okay, so now, we have all the transitions in place. And what we are going to do is we are going back to the beginning of the movie. Bring this bar back at the beginning and go over to the right side again, and play the movie just to see what we have in the way of effects. So you will see now that the switches, it is going to use the bar transition it. It is a little rough in this that that will be in the final product, so I would not worry too much about that. But as you can see, we have that transition in between each frame.
Okay, so now, we have our images imported into our new video. And we set the transitions between the frames, you have a nice smooth flowing video with that bar transition between each of the images. The next thing we want to do is we want to add some background music and to do that, we go back up to the Capture Video menu and we pull it down to Import Audio or Music. And what that should do is take us to our import file and it opens right in the My Music folder on your hard drive. So, it is pretty simple and we have one ready to go here. It says, bkmusic.mp3, and we are just going to select that and click Import.
Okay, now it is imported and you see it right here in the Collections menu. So, we are going to drag that down to the audio track and we are going to set it, and there you go. As you can see, this audio track is a lot longer than the vide
