Windows 7: Alternatives to Windows Live Movie Maker

Alternatives to Windows Live Movie Maker

For some reason, videos error out when trying to save movies larger than 3.5 GiB or 90 minutes, whichever comes first. It's also independent on frame size. Videos with higher resolutions require much more data bits to prevent lossy artifacts when transcoding.

Is there any other editor programs out there that can let me save and edit larger movies?

"MovieMaker" has always been a 32-bit application, which explains the 3.5 GiB round number.

I've been interested in MM alternatives, too. After using Movie Maker, I try to burn the resulting movie to DVD with DVDFlick, and it crashes because the sound is in some weird format that DVDFlick doesn't recognize.
Naturally, this problem only happens with Windows 7. Movie Maker in XP worked flawlessly.

Machete is a really good one because it is lossless. I think it costs $39,50 but they have a 2 week full function trial. I have used it many times. It is relatively simple if you understand key frames. Whether it can deal with such a nig file I do not know.

Easy Video Editor for FLV, MP4, 3GP, MKV, AVI, WMV etc files

Another free option is Avidemux. They have a 64bit version. It is a bit tricky to operate but they have a good documentation and a forum.

Can it do 4K resolution and beyond, or even 3D stereoscopic movies? Movie Maker won't.

No idea. Why don't you try it. I know Machete changes nothing in your files. It just edits them.
