Start Movie Maker by selecting All Programs from the Start menu, then choosing Accessories and Windows Movie Maker. This is the interface with captured video clips displayed in the Collections area.
On the File menu, select Capture Video, or in the Task Pane choose Capture Video > Capture from video device. The Task Pane offers a menu of wizards that simplify every aspect of making the movie – from adding credits, transitions, titles or subtitles to inserting a soundtrack. From the Available Devices menu click on the DV camera.
Type a name for your project in the Enter a file name for your captured video box and browse to the folder where you want to save your video.
Choose your preferred video setting, remembering that the highest quality will result in the largest file sizes.
If you click on Capture the entire tape automatically the tape in the DV camera will rewind, the capture will begin automatically and it will finish at the end of the tape. If you only want to transfer part of the recorded material on the tape, click Capture parts of the tape manually instead.
Separate the video into smaller clips by clicking in the Create clips when wizard finishes check box.
To close the wizard and import the captured video into a new ‘collection’ with the same name as the video file, click Finish.
