Hello, guys…I know most of you don’t recommend WMM for making your own DVD’s, but no one has ever given me advice as to a better program to use. Anyway, I have become pretty proficient at making really cool movies with importing soundtracks, narration, captions, etc. It just seems to be a crap shoot as to whether or not the finished movie will play in a DVD player or not. (I use WMM to edit the movie, then to save it to my hard drive in a format that can be burned by Nero.)
Anyway, my current problem is really frustrating…I have compiled a great home movie using WMM, and I am at the stage where I am trying to save the movie to my hard drive. I have plenty of space on my computer the movie is only an hour long; a relatively small file. I have tried 3 or 4 different options for saving the project, but it always gets hung up at 62% downloaded. I have left it running for a full day at a time, and it will never save the entire project. Can anyone advise me as to how I can get this project saved to my hard drive so I can burn it to a DVD, and then can someone advise me on a better movie-making program, and the best program to burn movies so they will play in dvd players??? Thanks.
