Movie Maker in Vista: Adding a Profile to Output Quality Files for PowerPoint
What Profile should I use when saving my video and title from Movie Maker? We have created a profile that outputs at 800X600 at 30 frames per second.
Inside of your zip file download, you will find a file named Powerfinish-800X600 WMV9.prx. Profile files tell Movie Maker the settings your video should use when saving. It’s easy to install
In Vista, you just need to create a folder called “Profiles” and put the .prx file there. For the custom profiles to show up, choose File > Publish Movie. (Tasks > Publish Movie will not show any custom profiles.)
