Of home movie titles and credits

by christy / November 10, 2006 9:28 AM PST

Although thid post is more about movie creation and editing, I wonder anyone can help out.

I am trying to add a "Title" run at the start of my movie, and at the end, a "The End" and "Credits" run, showing details of place, date and time the movie is taken, the camera man, equipment used, etc. i.e. giving a professional touch to the movies. How do I do this with Windows Movie Maker (I have version 1.1 which came with windows XP), if at all possible, or are there free simple downloadable programs ? At present, I do it by creating them with "Power Point" as a slide show and fliming the sequence - acceptable, but certainly not "professional" ! Thanks.

Using Windows Movie Maker

Thanks, boya84, but are you referring to WMM 1.1 (which came with Windows XP) ? There is no Tools menu at my copy of WMM. Excuse me, but I am new in this. Perhaps I am missing something ?

Do you have Windows XP SP2???

How you can check is go to start, then right click on my computer, then properties, and it should say there. If it says SP1, go to Windows Update and download SP2. When it downloads SP2, WMM is included.

....but only WMM version 1.1. The features are with WMM version 2, which I have now downloaded. Ver. 2 is a far improved version.

Whizkidd's right... Service Pack 2 is likely the answer

There are instructions at the HP site on getting that for your computer - which you really should do. I believe it gets you to Windows MovieMaker 2.1.something and will patch a BUNCH of Windows Operating System vulnerabilities you should have if you are doing any internet activities...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
