Over the last couple of days, I've been working on making a video for my girlfriend to use for work - one of those 'misheard lyric' type jobbies. I basically did it my making up the pictures I needed, and loading them, and the song into Windows Movie Maker and doing the business. But despite using good-quality GIFs, the picture quality came out awfully - smaller than the pics I put in, and the text (which was the most important part of the images) was unintelligible a lot of the time. Originally it was saved in the default file type, but I think the main problem with that could be that it was an NTSC format, which isn't much use over here. But most of the non-NTSC formats that are options are either really low bitrate or ridiculously high, and would likely take a month to compile. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong - or even suggest a decent (and hopefully free) similar movie-making software for download?
