the trouble with windows movie maker

For the last couple of weeks I have been struggling with Windows Live Movie Maker 2012, not matter what I did it crashed trying to render High Def 1080P movies. The error message was always the same, “There isn’t enough memory available to save this file.” of course this isn’t at all the case. I watched the processes and memory use never did it break 6 GB of RAM there are terabytes of space left on the external USB 3.0 drive I rendered to as well. I read forum posts about video drivers and expanding the edit window so that it showed the fewest number of clips and nothing worked. In the end I decided it wouldn’t hurt to down grade to Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 and guess what… It worked, flawlessly, several times. I don’t know what is missing from the 2011 version but until Microsoft figures out what wrong with the 2012 version I will be sticking with 2011.
