Hi
Wonder if anyone can help.
My son has taken some video on the camcorder which he wants to put onto movie maker.
On the camcorder it looks perfect but when we transfer it to windows movie maker it looks fuzzy, lotssof little boxes like its some sort of pixel problem.
At this stage because it looks ok on the camcorder i presume its a problem with how the movie maker is set up.
Has anyone any ideas. If anyone knows i would appreciate you keeping it as simple as you can as we are new to movie making.
As usual because i always seem to be asking either computer, ps3, dsi or psp questions thankyou very much in advance.

Have you played it through your TV from Cam. to see if it looks ok?
How have you got your camcorder connected to PC? Firewire?
Is your PC old? I think as long as it is at least a P4 with a gig of ram you should be ok if all working and connected...

Will check the TV if i can find the right leads.
It was connected via the USB
It is old but says P4 on it and i recently updated the RAM
Rep given thanks

Hi
It might be because it's going through USB and not Firewire. Something to do with the speed of data transfer I think...
You can pick up a firewire card on ebay cheap, and it is easy to fit.

Check the back of your computer to see if there is a "blank plate". After all the ports and holes and bits where you connect cables, there might be a plain metal strip, and possibly another at the bottom of your computer at the back.

You get a firewire card, open up the computer, take out the "plain metal strip" which will leave a gap/empty slot, at the back of the computer case. You then slot in the firewire card in to the main board of the computer, and it will fill the gap where you took out the metal strip.

Does this make sense to you?

Sounds like encoding artifacts, but I wouldn't swear to it. Is it blocky from the moment you import it, or only when you save the movie?
