I recorded some videos using my Canon T3i DSLR and my camera kept stopping the recording. I ended up with a number of short videos that I want to join together. I tried doing this using Windows Movie Maker (on Windows XP) and Windows Live Movie Maker (on Windows Vista). Neither program would recognize my videos.
The video format is (I think) H.264 in a MOV container. I installed the CCCP codec pack hoping that would help but no luck. Any ideas about this?
I also took a bunch of pictures to make a timelapse and I'm using Windows Live Movie Maker to create the video. However, it wouldn't recognize the CR2 (raw) format. I installed the Canon RAW codec but no luck. I was able to create the timelapse using JPEG images. Any ideas?
Also, the final video is created in WMV format. I would like to know if there is a way to output some other format such as H.264 using Windows Live Movie Maker?
Basically, I am looking for ways to:
- Join H.264/MOV video files and
- Create time lapse videos using CR2 Canon Raw files.
I would like to use free software for accomplishing these tasks.
