So far everything seems to be working great. The only problems I'm having is
with some titles when I create the .wmv movie from a project. The titles for
the most part are ok except for long titles and two line titles.

With long titles when I use the smallest font to make the title a single
line, the preview shows me exactly that. But when I create the movie and
watch it in Media Player the title now seems to be too long and wraps around
to a second line. I'm using the fade-in and slow zoom effect, which doesn't
seem to affect it when I run the movie in Moviemaker.

My other problem is with two line titles. I like using the fade in effect,
which will fade in the text from the top pane and a second or two later fade
in the text from the bottom pane. When previewing the movie the titles are
the same size, but after creating the .wmv file and watching it in Media
player the text on top is the same size I saw in Moviemaker, but the text on
the bottom is now about 1/2 the size. I'm also using the smallest font
possible. Is there a way to control the font size separately for the text in
each pane? I like to use this approach because of the professional
appearance.

Although this is a great tool it is not 100% WYSISWYG compared to the final
product. Has anyone else experienced this?

I agree with your observations about it not being exactly WYSIWYG, but it's
pretty close. You seem to have all the controls down, and there are no more
beyond those. It's a basic starter level app.
