Importing Video and Audio

If you want to use existing video and audio clips in your movie instead of recording them yourself, you can obtain them from various companies that specialize in video processing, or you can download them from the Web. Commercial CDs are excellent sources for audio clips. You can import the video and audio clips into Movie Maker from files on your computer, from your CD drive, or from the Web. If you already imported a video clip and need a still picture of a frame from a video, you can take a picture of the video frame and save it as a file, which you can import back into Movie Maker.

Import Video or Audio

Click the File menu, and then click Import Into Collections.

Select the folder that contains the video or audio files you want to import.

To select a specific media type, click the Files Of Type list arrow, and then select a file type.

Select the files you want to import.

TIMESAVER To import several files at one time, press and hold down the Ctrl key, and then click each file that you want to import.

To import clips as separate smaller clips, select the Create Clips For Video Files check box.

Click Import.

Movie Maker creates a new collection for the imported video or audio clips.
