Hi 6S – Watch these videos to learn how to use Movie Maker

Hi 6S,

Now that you have your video footage of the retelling of Aboriginal Stories, we need to edit the movies so they look professional.

The video below will help you use the different tools in Windows Movie Maker.

Please go to the start menu, click on programs and select Windows Movie Maker. Then play the video below. Pause it whenever you want to edit your movie and go back to it when you are ready.

Some things you will need to consider are:

  • Do not use music that you do not have permission to use. You can use the sound clips in the Movie Maker Fun Pack. You can find these in the C Drive, Documents and Settings folder, All Users folder, Shared Documents folder.
  • The flip video does not record sound in high volume. To increase the volume, go to the Clip menu, select Audio and then Volume. Increase the volume here. You can also make your music fade in and out by using the other features in this menu.

Now you are set. Ms Sofiolakis and Ms Bush will be around to help you with trouble shooting.

All the best – I’m sure your movies will be fantastic.
