Step 1. Launch Windows Movie Maker, open a new project, import your videos and pictures, split and trim your movie, add transitions as well as effects to enhance your movie, and add Titles and Credits to complete the movie as you like.
Step 2. Go to the ribbon, and then click the Save movie button found in the Share section on the Home tab.
Step 3. Type your file name, and choose your video file type: MPEG Video File (*.mp4) or Windows Media Video File (*.wmv).

Step 2. Mouse over an option in order to see the details, and then choose a suitable setting like For high-definition display, and pick a location to save the file and click or tap Save button.

How to Save Movie Maker Project Creating New Custom Settings
Step 1. Click on the File button, located on the top-left corner of the free video editing software window to open the file panel.
Step 2. Click on the Save movie button to open up a new sub-menu to the right.
Step 3. Scroll down the sub-menu, and click on Create custom setting button at the very end of the sub-menu.
Step 4. Now, input the following information:
Setting: Click on the setting's drop-down list, you either can choose "" to start from scratch, or select any of the existing settings from the list.
Name: Give this new export setting a name (for example, Wild China).
Width & height: Enter your source file's original width as well as height. If you wish to export your video at a smaller frame size, edit these values. If you aren't sure, leave them as-is.

Note: Even if the dimensions you choose here do not maintain the aspect ratio that you chose, the outputted video file will not be stretched or skewed. In general, to maintain the aspect ration, Movie Maker will take the largest dimension you choose and automatically generate the other dimension.

Bit rate: This can affect the level of detail in your video. Although lower bit rates lead to smaller file sizes and faster uploads, you had better set this higher for improved quality.

Note: for average video files, the bit rate includes: SD — 2-5, 720p — 5-10, 1080p — 10-20, 2K — 20-30, 4K — 30-60. You can choose a lower bit rate if your video contains below average visual complexity (such as a slideshow presentation). Conversely, you should increase the bit rate if your video contains above average visual complexity (such as a video with high levels of grain).

Frame rate: This will affect the smoothness of motion and animations in your video. For basic slideshows, you can choose 24fps because photos don't have to be particularly high. For full motion video, it's not usually necessary to go above 30 fps.

Audio format: Click on the drop-down list and select the audio settings you want. The higher the bit rate (kbps), the better the quality, but it also means a bigger file size. 192 kbps, 48 kHz, stereo is considered CD quality, but 128kbps is passable for video.
Step 5. Check the estimated file size.
Step 6. Click Save after you finish these settings.
