    This is what you should do. Create a new collection. If it’s image files you want to get, go to the folder where they are, select all, and click import. If it’s movie files you want to import, Windows Movie Maker automatically makes the new collections (no way around that).

    My suggestion is to import image files instead of video clips. If you still want to import video clips, you can drag the clips from the different collections and stick them in the timeline. You can always delete the collections after you’ve saved your project as a movie.

    Yes, I do use LS. What I may do now though is capture the movies with it but edit them on another program (to get better picture quality and resulution)
    I sopose the way for me to get you WMV version of the machine is for you to email it to me. or is there a way for you or me to transfere it from you brickshelf folder to mine. I’ll PM you with my email if this isn’t possible

    It’s easier to send it. Of course the other way is possibale too, with a little more hassles (not much).

    That’s OK. It’s small enough. I was wondering if Windows Movie maker is available free over the net. I may use it to edit my movies.
    Did you save the movie to your computer then open them in Win Movie Maker? What do you mean by putting the clips back in order? wasn’t the movie all one file?

    I imported the file into Window Movie Maker, put the clips back in order, specified the size of the file that I wanted, and saved it.

    BTW- I can shrink it smaller if you want (the quality WILL suffer).
    ADD ON- Windows Movie Maker saves in WMV only. I can convert it to AVI but, it will take up way more space with no quality improvement.

    Windy Day wasn’t 26mb. The robot one was. (just in case you were confused, which you may not have been)
    do you have a cable connection or something faster like DSL (or whatever it’s called)

    😮 Holy cow with hot fudge! 😮 I downloaded that file so fast (long ago) that I had NO idea that it was 26 mgs! Amazing! :woo

    As some of you have noticed my robot movie is much to large for people to download (even with cable). right now it’s 26mb and in a mpeg file. When I submitted Windy Day to lego it was about 3mb, but when it appeared on their website it had been shrunk to only a few kb without any quality change. I was wondering how they did that and if I could also shrink the size of The Machine.
    thanks
