HI!

i needed to edit a short clip, i already have pinnacle video spin, but i use that for longer videos, not for 20, 30 secs clips, i just wanted to add text to the video.

i remember that i find for an alternative to moviemaker time ago because moviemaker can export in 30fps, but ok i am fine with pinnacle, but for short clips i want to use moviemaker.

The problem is that in the intallation, in the list of stuff that it will install with it, it is Directx 3d 9, i already have directx 11, and i dont want to downgrade. i have read in many forum that it doesn't overwrite it because after installation it can be verified in dxdiag, i don't know what happen, but even when dxdiag says that directx 11 is there, there is a noticeable decrease in video performance AFTER the installation of the software that ask for directx9 what i suspect, that directx WAS installed but for some reason dxdiag still shows directx 11.

i dont know WHY moviemaker can't detect directx 11 and to work with that, it's the same unresolved case of the nero 7 on windows 7, that ask for the directx 9 too. and if not, it can't be installed

According to Wikipedia Direct3D is a component of DirectX.

Direct3D is part of Microsoft's DirectX application programming interface (API).


See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Direct3D for more information.

Looks like compatibility is the issue. See here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-hardware/have-directx-11-but-doesnt-meet-windows-live-movie/1a936b65-36de-4fac-9959-8b5e60d47d10
