I know 1000 people have asked this already- But I still cant get this darn thing to work. I get a little blue box with a message saying "Out of Range" I HAVE downloaded the matrox codec to no avail. I'm using windows movie maker 2- to create my avi's and dont see how I EXPORT the file at all- let alone export it uncompressed.
HELP! What do I do now??

Here's what I do:
I make the movie, then pressing ''Save movie on your computer'' or something like that in movie maker. I dont like to compress trough moviemaker, so I use Studio 8 instead...
EDIT: I have no idea about the matrox kodec, never heard about it...

thanks for replying, but thats what I have been doing. I just dont get it. Anyone have any idea how long it is before AlamDV3 comes out. I think thats the only way I'm gonna get past this problem.

Not being out of order but windows movie maker is crap and u should upgrade to a better vid edit program like pinnacle studio 9 (about £60) but if its all you got dont worry!
but, the only thing i could recommend would be to save to my computer> show more choices> other settings> DV-AVI (PAL) it should work cos its not a windows codec, soz i cant try it as im in school!

I hear what you are saying- it is basic but it's free and it does what I need it to do you know. I mean all i need is trim and a timeline right?
Anyway- again, iv tried doing what you suggest but i still get the 'out of range' and little blue square.
I selected open new 'picture' project (not 'movie' project) and the movie actually plays on loop- so Alam must understand the file right? but i cant pause the loop or anything obviously- because alam thinks its looking at a jpg or something.
Man, this is so frustrating. Surely there is a way around all this nonsense- anyone else still having the same problem as me?

erm, that would be a yes. I don't really know what you mean by asking the question though. Where is the problem? is it with alam? or moviemaker? or is it the codec? I have NO clue what do do. I've read all the forums and cant get an answer. I'm obviously not the only person who's had the little blue square deal. I just cant get past it.

I dont feel like reading the above posts so sorry if this was already said but Windows Movie Maker 2 can't export as anything that will work in alamdv2. It won't export from WMM2 as matrox.
