movie maker shuts down


B

Can anyone tell me if there is a maximum file size for a home video I want to
edit or is there a maximum time of a video I want to edit.

I have the right format for the video, and the movie maker loads all the
video clips, but when I move more than 21 clips into the timeline movie
maker just shuts down.

===================================
There's no hard coded limit...basically, you
are only limited by your system resources.

However...large projects can cause issues...I
would suggest that you create several smaller
projects. Save them in a Movie format (.wmv or
..avi) And reimport them to create the final movie.

I would also suggest that you read the following
articles and take care that the source files you use
are compatible with Movie Maker.
