Exporting with Windows Movie Maker HD in 720p

To export your HD/HDV footage from Windows Movie Maker in 720p you need to own the Vista Premium/Ultimate versions. All the other Windows versions only support plain DV, not HD. So, first you need to install the Windows Media Encoder 9, create a profile and save it on Movie Maker’s profiles folder, then edit as usual, and then export using that profile. Visual guide here. The file is compatible with Vimeo HD and XboX360. Microsoft might already have some 720p HD profiles btw (I can’t test this as I only own the “Basic” version of Vista), so have a look around for that first on Movie Maker’s exporting dialogs before going ahead with this tutorial.
