We would recommend Windows MovieMaker, it’s free. or iMovie if you’re on a Mac.
Movie Maker was included in the Vista operating system. However, some computers running Vista cannot run this version. You can download Movie Maker 2.6 from the Microsoft site if this is the case.
After you have created the movie, you need to convert it to play on a TV using DVD Maker, also included in Vista.
Helping Travelers to Plan, Preserve, and Share their Travels
I watched your videos on Movie Maker and then tried to use it. Unfortunately, my version (6.0) of the program that came with my computer does not look like the version you’re using in the videos so I could not figure out how to add narration or music. I was able to put in the photos and transitions. I went to the Microsoft site to upgrade my version and learned that I can’t install 2.6 that you recommended if my version runs which it does. Seems to me that 2.6 would be older than 6.0 anyway. What I want is the 2012 version which is what I think you used in your videos. Any thoughts on how I can get it? I can’t afford to buy a new computer with something other than vista. Thanks.
Yes, Iam using version 2012. They do have a mess of versions in between vista and now. It does appear that 2012 requires windows 7. Any possibility of upgrading your computer to 7?
I searched for some other tutorials and found a decent one on 2.6 … that may be similar. http://www.visualsteps.com/pho…..aker26.pdf
