Movie Maker: Saved Movie 'Cuts Off' Top of Video (not black bars) RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I save my edited project to a movie file, no matter which save setting or aspect ratio, it cuts off the top of the video.

    When recorded, the action was close to the top of the frame, so this issue means that on playing the 'movie' you can not see all the action. It does not have the 'black bars' issue. The video looks and sounds fine when I play it in the project window, even when I expand it, but as soon as I save it as a movie it doesn't show the whole picture. Distressing since I was trusted with taping the event and creating a simple movie from it.

    I hope I've explained this well enough, but please ask me questions if it doesn't make sense. I am running Windows 8 and Movie Maker from Windows Essentials 2012.

    Any and all assistance would be appreciated.
