Use Windows Live Movie Maker to Render your MMD Video in 1080p HD!
Sometimes when rendering in MMD you can get really low quality videos, or really large files that are hard to upload to the Internet. I am going to show you how to render an MMD Video in 1080p HD and still upload in a reasonable amount of time.
First thing’s first, you’ll need Windows Live Movie Maker. If you don’t already have it, you can download it from here. http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows-live/movie-maker-get-started (If you can’t download Live Movie Maker for some reason, you can upload to Youtube without it but I cannot guarantee the results. There’s a way to upload HD in the Windows XP Movie Maker too.)
Once you have your video done in MMD and you’re ready to share it with the world, go ahead and click file>Render to AVI file. A little Windows browser will pop up. Give your movie a name, and click “save”. Remember where you saved it. A box should come up with some options. Make sure the frames are the same as under the play button, if it’s highlighted make sure “export wav” is checked, and click “Cinepak Codec by Radius”, then OK. You will see your video playing frame-by-frame, and once it’s finished MMD will open again. Close MMD.
Open Windows Live Movie Maker. (If you don’t have Live Movie Maker, just drag the AVI onto the Youtube upload page. It’ll upload, eventually… And will probably be in HD?) Find the AVI you saved, then drag and drop it into Movie Maker. If you wish, you can edit it and still keep 1080p HD. If you are getting black bars on the sides or bottom and top of your video, AKA “letterboxing”, click “Video tools” and click
either “Standard” or “widescreen”. Whichever one works. Once you’re satisfied click the big “Youtube” button in Movie Maker and sign in. Your video will upload automatically. (Once the video is on Youtube, click the little gear in the bottom right corner of the player and select the 1080p HD option to see your HD awesomeness. ^^)
If you wish to upload it somewhere else you can click the “Save Movie” button, and scroll down until you see “Youtube”. What? you didn’t want to upload to Youtube? Don’t worry! You’re not. This just saves as a video file on your computer that is common across the Internet. the format is “MP4” and it’s great for HD videos.
Enjoy your 1080p HD videos as much as I do! ^^ Ciao!
