Digital Storytelling Digital storytelling is the practice of combining narration with digital content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie, typically with a strong emotional component. Luis Colón 06/02/09
Constructing a narration and communicating it effectively require the storyteller to think carefully about the topic and consider the audience’s perspective. Luis Colón 06/02/09
Movie Maker can handle two audio tracks simultaneously:
the audio portion of imported video clips and a separate audio/music track. The second audio track could be a musical score, for example, or a voice-over narration. Audio tracks can only be added using the Timeline view.
Toggle the view to show the Timeline.
Move to the point in the movie where you would like the audio to begin.
Drag the audio clip from the collection area to the timeline.
You can trim audio clips just as you can video clips.
Click Change Text Font and Color to select fonts and colors.
Click Change Title Animation to select how the text appears on the screen. You can have it scroll across the screen, for example, or have it fill in like dripping paint (particularly effective using red font for those slasher flicks).
what you select here determines how long it will render your film (from a few seconds to many hours), how your file size will be (potentially gigabytes in size), and the image and sound quality of the end product.
At the bottom of the window you can see details about the settings and about the file size.
