8. Use the options provided to set the title font and color.

Setting Video Options
Windows Movie Maker allows you to encode your video using an aspect ratio for
widescreen or standard screen, and to format your video using either NTSC or PAL
video format. In Windows Movie Maker, you can set these and other options by
completing the following steps:
1. Click Tools and then click Options to display the Options dialog box shown in
Figure 10-43.
2. By default, Windows Movie Maker creates a working version of the DVD in a
temporary folder within your profile. Because your profile is stored on the sys-
tem drive, which typically is the C: drive, this drive must have at least 5 GB of
available disk space when you are creating a single-sided single-layered DVD,
and 10 GB of available disk space when you are creating a single-sided double-
layered DVD. If you want to choose a folder on another drive for the temporary
files, click Browse and then use the Browse for Folder dialog box to select the
new folder to use.

3. By default, AutoRecover data for your video project is saved every 10 minutes.
Similar to Microsoft Office applications, such as Word, this allows you to
recover to the last saved position should something unexpected happen while
you are making your movie. If Windows Movie Maker freezes or the power goes
out, the last saved position will be loaded automatically the next time you restart
Windows Movie Maker. If you want to use a different AutoRecover interval,
enter the desired interval in the text box provided, such as five minutes.
4. Click the Advanced tab, as shown in Figure 10-44.
5. By default, pictures are displayed for 5 seconds and transitions are displayed for
1.25 seconds. You can change the display time for pictures by entering a new
display time in the “Picture duration” text box. You can change the display time
for transitions by entering a new display time in the “Transition duration” text
box.

When deciding on the duration of pictures and transitions, keep in
mind the prospective audience and the tempo of your music. If your
music has a relatively fast beat, you may want to use a shorter display
duration. If your music has a slower beat, you might want to use a
longer display duration. In most cases, you’ll want pictures to be dis-
played for between four and eight seconds, with transitions of one to
one and a half seconds.
