The topic says it all. I've been told that I can convert a MP4 to an AVI in LITE.

When I imported my MP4, I went through the conversion, but it came out in MOV.

I need my files to be in AVI so they can have their sound retained when rendered into FxHome as AVIs.

Can't you just add your sound back after you do the effects in your NLE? Seems like the easiest way to go.

Windows Movie Maker does not accept MOV files, and I'd much rather have the sound be rendered with final FxHome project, then re editing the sound into the clip with my NLE.

Can Video Wrap convert the MP4 to an AVI, as you told me it would in the past forum, so I don't get the "No Sound?" render message when I'm about to render in FxHome Effectslab Pro?

I receive this message because an MOV file is on the canvas, and I have the render settings set to render as a directshow .avi

I"m fairly sure that VideoWrap doesn't render to .avi format, though I'm not certain. Who told you that you could do this? Was it an official source, or a fellow user trying to be helpful?

EDIT: Well, after looking into this a bit, it turns out I was wrong, at least as far as the full version of VideoWrap! goes. I don't know about the Lite version, as it is Windows only, but the Playback Devices options include some conversions to .avi. However, there aren't any of the conversions that will be very useful for converting in prep for EffectsLab, as VideoWrap is focused on delivery codecs, not intermediate codecs, so the quality to size ratio isn't intended for editing.

I would look at an alternate conversion program, such as Quicktime Pro. And yes, Quicktime Pro can convert to .avi. Its $30 and well worth every penny. But you still need $30. Otherwise, there are likely some free converters available out there as well.

Try this http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html
It has a terrible interface but has worked for me in the past.

OK I've figured it out. Heres what you do:

1)Import your movie into Videowrap and click NEXT.
2)Click on Playback devices.
3)Click on Game Consoles.
4)Click on Nintendo Wii.
5)Click on Deinterlace (a check in the circle should appear) if your video needs Deinterlaced.
6)Click on Videowrap my movie!

Done!
This works in my version however I do own the full version not the "lite" version.
Good luck! -$torm Grenade

Is it possible to convert more than one clip at once with video wrap? Because I'm working with a hard drive camera and a lot of clips need to be converted.

Are there any free, and simple converters out there to complete the process of changing an MP4 to an AVI?

No just one at a time.

I still prefer Videowrap lite however if it doesn't "float yo' boat" then a simple google serch can bring up some good results:

Well you can import as mov then export as avi in fxhome, then it should work with windows movie maker. If It doesn't, sorry.
