The display resolution is reduced when viewed from
the Timeline/Storyboard...this will not affect your
completed project (especially noticable when viewed
If your saved video files are not the resolution you
require...you may need to use a Custom Profile:
Personally, I find the following .wmv profile to be
useful when saving movies.
Download from the following site...
Movie Maker 2 - Saving
Movies - Custom WMV Profiles
Right click / Save as...drop it in the following folder:
C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\Profiles folder
For Vista...here's the path to the correct folder:
C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\Profiles
(you'll have to Create the Profiles folder if it's not there)
In Movie Maker...the next time you save a movie...
Go to File / Save Movie file / Show More Choices /
Other Settings / Open the drop window and choose...
Creating Custom Profiles
for Windows Movie Maker 2
