Windows 7: Zooming in Movie Maker

Zooming in Movie Maker

For some reason the zoom tools are disabled in my version of Windows Live Movie Maker (14.0), unfortunately none of the help files tell me why?

It might just be that my video camera doesn't record enough pixels (or whatever they are called) but I'd like to know.

Welcome to sevenforums! There might be some file types that do not support this feature in windows live movie maker. Can you post your file type and a screenshot if possible? Use the sniping tool in windows 7

Cheers for the reply,

This time I've been trying to zoom into a Win Media Video File, I've tried mp4's also in the past no luck.

Hopefully the pic has worked, I'm trying to zoom into the top right of this video but the 'pan & zoom' tools are greyed out.

Hi HLaB
According to MS Quote: Unfortunately, for Windows Live Movie Maker, this feature is not available
It appears they (MS) didn't have time to incorporate this feature. perhaps they are too busy thinking about buying "Twitter".
Full explanation in this thread:
Live Movie Maker 'Pan and Zoom' of video
I use a couple of Video Editors that have this feature but it is one of the more difficult featrures to use successfully, I find anyway

Thanks mitchel65, that's cleared that up, MS get your finger out.

Can you reccomend any good free editing software that has the feature?

Can't think of a freebie video editor that will do the job you want though there may well be one out there. Suggest you Google it and download a couple and have a look. Video Editing is one of the most demanding things you can do on a PC both from the processing power that you need and the big learning curve. So not something to enter into lightly. If you care to post your camcorder details , make and model number I will have a look at what level of editor would make best use of your original clips. No point in going for a Rolls Royce editor if you are getting your clips from a mobile phone for instance! Not that there is anything wrong with that

How about the old WMM. Is has "ease out" and "ease in" in the effects. Here is how to install it in Windows7. In case you do not have a copy, you can download mine from here. It is a bit of a pain because they make you wait for 30 seconds, but it works.

The one I linked is the old Vista WMM that you can tweak in as per the instructions. Works well too. The 2.6 is really, really old.

Hi WHS Have tried the link to download, waited the 30 secs but got this message:
Your download slot has expired. Please try again
Is there something I have missed?
