[b]Part 1: How to import .mod video to Windows Movie Maker[/b]
[b]Step 1: Load files[/b]
First copy the MOD file from your video camera to your hard drive, then [url=***********]download[/url], install and run [url=***********]TOD MOD Converter[/url], click the "Add Files" button to browse your computer hard disc and load the MOD/TOD video files you want to convert to the program.


[b]Step 2: Output Setting[/b]
In the bottom of the main interface, select an output format supported by Windows Movie Maker for each video file and specify a directory on your computer to save the output files.

[b]Step 3: Start convert[/b]
Click "Start" button on right bottom of the main interface, you are allowed to start conversion.

[b]Step 4: Import converted video to Windows Movie Maker[/b]
Click on "File". Then click on "Import". A window will appear. In the window, navigate to the video clip you converted just now. Then double click on the file. You'll see the icon for the file in your Windows Movie Maker "Collections".


[b]Part 2: How to edit the video with Windows Movie Maker[/b]
[b]Step 1: Add transitions and special effects[/b]
In the Movie Tasks pane, under Edit Movie, click View video transitions.


Preview transitions by double-clicking them and watching the Preview Monitor. Once you've found a transition you like, drag it from the Video Transitions pane, under Edit Movie pane to the box between two of your clips. This inserts the transition between the two clips.


[b]Step 2: Add titles and credits[/b]
If you want to add a title before, after, or on top of a clip, click the clip on the storyboard or timeline.
In the Movie Tasks pane, under Edit Movie, click Make titles or credits.


[b]Step 3: Add Music[/b]
In the Movie Tasks pane in Movie Maker, under Capture Video, click Import audio or music.


In the Import File dialog box, click the name of the song you want to use in the background. Then click Import. This adds your song to your collection but does not add it to your video.

Drag the song from the collection to the video clip where you want the music to start playing.


[b]Step 4: Add narration[/b]
If you have a desktop computer, connect a microphone. Microphones are available from most electronics stores. If you have a portable computer, you can use the built-in microphone. However, you will get a better-quality recording if you connect an external microphone.

In Movie Maker, click the Tools menu, and then click Narrate Timeline. On the timeline, click the clip you want to narrate. You can narrate clips one at a time, or you can narrate the entire movie all at once. If you narrate individual clips, you can rearrange them later and keep your narration synchronized.

If the narration is too loud or too soft in comparison to the movie, right-click the narration on your timeline, and then click Volume.

[b]Step 5: To save your movie to your computer[/b]
In the Movie Tasks pane, under Finish Movie, click Save to my computer.


The Save Movie Wizard appears. On the Save Movie File page, type a name for your movie. You can also choose a folder to save it in by clicking the Browse button, but My Videos (the default) is usually the best place to save your movie. Then click Next.

On the Movie Setting page, click Next to accept the default setting of Best quality for playback on my computer.
Movie Maker saves your movie, which might take several minutes. On the Completing the Save Movie Wizard page, click Finish. If Play movie when I click Finish was selected (it is selected by default), the movie will automatically play in Windows Media Player.

Now you can watch your videos anytime by opening your My Videos folder and double-clicking your movie.
