Does anyone know how to make subtitles using windows movie maker 2? It would help a lot, since a lot of the humor in my movie comes from what they are saying in a different language. If not, then can you suggest another program that does?

Well, you can use Videomach, however with WMM2 you do this:

Click the clip you want the Subtitle on, then select “Make Titles or Credits” on the leftside menu.

Then select “Title on the selected clip in the timeline”

Type your text in, then select “Change the title animation”

Then from the menu, select, on the -titles, one line- section, “Subtitle” descrip “Subtitle at bottom (Overlay)”.

After that , click “Done, add title to movie” and there you have it

this is the situation:

the gang is robbing a train, but the passengers don’t speak english. A gang member tries to speak their language, and he says something he didn’t mean. If a subtitle isn’t there to explain what he’s saying, it wouldn’t be funny and you would be confused.

sorry to not make that clear in my other post.

i’ve already filmed two scenes out of about eleven, so there’s a very small chance that i’m going to give up now. I’m estimating from a month to two and a half, at the very latest.

first, did you know you can edit posts, dandenmark?


Open up WMM2.

Maximize it to full screen.

On the LEFT MIDDLE side of the screen, their is a MENU. It says:

  1. Capture Video[/*]
  2. Edit Movie ^[/*]
  3. Finish Movie[/*]
  4. Movie Making tips[/*]

The Edit Movie section should be maximized by clicking the ^ arrow next to Edit Movie. If the arrow is ^, then you are doing fine. if it is down, click it again and the Edit menu should expand to show more options.

It should say:

  1. Show collections[/*]
  2. View Video effects[/*]
  3. View Video Transitions[/*]
  4. Make Titles or Credits[/*]
  5. Make an Auto Movie[/*]

Click “Make titles or credits” from the menu you JUST expanded.

The menu will be gone, and their will be a new window saying

  1. Title at the beginning of the Movie[/*]
  2. Title before the selected clip in the movie[/*]
  3. Title on the selected clip in the movie[/*]
  4. Title after the selected clip in the movie[/*]
  5. Credits at the end of the movie.[/*]
  6. Cancel[/*]

Select ‘Title on the selected clip in the movie’

Type in what the guy is supposed to say.



The Default is fade in, fade out on ‘titles, two lines’, you want ‘subtitle’ on ‘titels, one line’. select that, then select done, add title to movie, and your title will appear in the window beow, IF you have your timeline set to timeline, and not storyboard. for that matter, don’t ask anymore, just look at the help manual! :D
