In fact, it was one I put more preparation into than I ever put into a montage before. I planned out what footage to use, and assigned everything to the lyrics of the song as I downloaded. It took me ages to download. It didn’t help I had to run just about everything through an avi converted before it would import into Windows Movie Maker. Finally I spent today editing, had my montage ready…and Windows Movie Maker won’t convert it. I have no idea what the problem is, and no time with which to figure it out. Unless I can track down a miracle solution tomorrow a whole month of work and planning goes down the drain.
I sometimes consider new video editing software, but that’s expensive and the one time I tried it it didn’t go any better. Why can’t there be a simply video editor out there that works?!
ETA: I have finally managed to create a video file, albeit one with sound glitches. Unfortunately Vimeo’s having difficulties right now, but hopefully I’ll have it embedded soon. Meanwhile you can download the vid at http://www.fileswap.com/dl/dDLZppQeVc/
