Thanks for trying to help. Somehow WMM wouldn't do anything with the mp4 files on my PC but ds(14) took it on a usb stick to his laptop that is abit more up to date than my old computer and downloaded a converter, brought it back to me as an MPG file and now we've manage dto edit it. Just have to cope with putting the music on background now and we're done!
Dd (13) has been set some homework for music where she has to film a short advert and use music in the background (3 girls in a group). They have done all the work but it wasn't possible to edit the film.
I told her we could get a student of dh's to help as he's great at computer stuff but she's abit embarrassed and doesn't want to show him it.
It's a film of one of 3 girls trying to put on her make-up and finding that her mascara is no good, then dd and another girl enter the room and suggest a different mascara. Then they all try it and there are close ups of their eyes with mascara on and last shot is all 3 of them looking happy! They have to edit, string all the scenes together and then add music to the background and all without any teaching or help from school!
She's having trouble editing the video she has mp4 files from her Samsung phone and our PC uses Windows Movie Maker. Is there anyway she can convert the files as it's not recognising them when she tries to import them.
Alone the fact that they have to download some music for this film is a pain. When they have chosen which tune/song they want to put on it they have to buy it or download it somehow from youtube. She's never done that before (is it even legal?). I did offer my CD collection to pick a song from but Abba and Bee Gees isn't their cup of tea!
